What Is
Pico Genesis

PICO Genesis laser procedure takes an entirely new approach to the treatment of pigmentation issues and skin revitalization. This method combines the benefits of two highly effective wavelengths in ultra-short pulses to cause an intense, non-thermal, photo mechanical disruption and remodeling of the upper dermis.

What does this mean for you? A brighter, more uniform complexion in less treatment sessions than traditional methods.

Originally developed for tattoo removal, picosecond lasers are now being used for a variety of conditions, including skin toning, reducing hyperpigmentation, and building collagen. With virtually no downtime.

What Is Pico Genesis Used to Treat?

Recommend for all skin types, the PICO Genesis laser procedure is used to treat:

  • Brown spots
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Pigmented lesions

Traditional Approaches

High-intensity laser treatments rely on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which is often painful and may lead to significant skin redness and downtime. Since pigment particles are very small and dense, they are often difficult to remove. They are also problematic when damaged by heat,which is why high-intensity lasers are often not optimal treatments for pigmentation issues.

How Does PICO Genesis work?

The PICO Genesis laser procedure uses a non-thermal laser that doesn’t cause damage to the surrounding tissue. It destroys the pigment, leaving your skin clearer and giving you a more even, uniform complexion.

Benefits of Pico Genesis

When looking for a treatment to improve your skin’s appearance, it is important to do your research and consider all your options. Face-lifts and other minimally invasive procedures can cause significant downtime and come with many risks and side-effects.

Recovery, or downtime, has been a concern with high-intensity laser treatments. Although they can work wonders, the potential for side effects and adverse events often deters patients from opting for laser treatments.

Until now. With PICO Genesis, there is virtually no downtime. In addition, with some high-intensity laser treatments as many as 10 to 15 sessions are required to see results. With PICO Genesis, you will see results in much fewer sessions.

  • Ultra-short laser pulses that leave skin looking radiant without redness or swelling
  • Dramatic results with minimal downtime and fewer treatment sessions
  • Ability to be used on the face and body to correct skin irregularities
