WHAT IS PICOWAY?
PicoWay® is an advanced laser treatment for tattoo removal, pigmentation, skin irregularities, and signs of aging. For more information about PicoWay laser tattoo removal, click here.
PicoWay Resolve is a non-invasive, non-surgical anti-aging device that uses short laser pulses to stimulate natural collagen production for a younger-looking skin tone. Resolve is a fractional treatment capability on the advanced PicoWay laser device for benign pigmented lesions such as freckles, age spots, lentigines, and more. Fractional treatments mean that only a fraction of the skin is affected, leaving healthy skin around the treated area to promote rapid healing.
HOW DOES PICOWAY WORK?
This breakthrough technology uses ultra-fast pulses known as picoseconds (trillionths of a second) to break down the pigment into the smallest particles. This optimizes the delivery of energy to the pigmented particles, while the least amount of heat gets transferred into the skin. The speed of the pulses shatter even the tiniest pigmented particles, making it easier for the body to naturally clear the pigmentation. As a result, the PicoWay offers better results with fewer treatments, can be used on a variety of skin types, and has little or no downtime!
How PicoWay Works
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY APPOINTMENT?
During your treatment, you will be given protective eye wear which will protect your eyes from the intense laser light. The laser may feel like little pinpricks to the skin. Many people ask if the PicoWay treatment hurts. The degree of discomfort varies with each person depending on the nature and location of the pigmented lesions on the body. If you are concerned about discomfort, you can ask for a prescription for a topical numbing agent that you can use during the treatment session. Please let the receptionist know when you schedule your appointment that you would like this prescription.
After the treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and minor bruising for the first 24-48 hours. You may notice darker spots peeling or falling off in the treatment site. This is a normal part of the process.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
The effectiveness of the treatment depends on many factors such as the location, depth, size, and type of pigmentation. Some lesions will require several treatments for optimal results where some can be resolved in a single treatment. Typically, we recommend a series of three to four treatments.
