As we age, a number of changes take place in our skin. Exposure to UV radiation from the sun or tanning bed, and sometimes simply from hereditary genetics, leaves brown spots on the skin. The body produces less collagen, a fibrous protein that gives firmness and thickness to the complexion.
How it works
Lasers create focused light energy, emitted in pulses. Most medical lasers use nanosecond pulses – one billionth of a second. PicoWay delivers light energy in picoseconds – pulses of trillionth of a second. This shorter pulse duration penetrates skin without unwanted thermal side effects.
The PicoWay Resolve holographic fractional hand piece fractures the light beam into thousands of pinpoints. PicoWay is a dual-wavelength laser. Energy delivered at 532nm breaks up unwanted pigmentation in the epidermis (surface skin layers), with uniform results. By switching to the 1064nm wavelength, PicoWay sends laser energy into deeper skin layers, where it triggers neocollagenesis – stimulating the production of fresh new collagen. The result is skin rejuvenation; resolution of age spots and other pigmentation irregularities, and firmer skin with reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and sags.
What to expect
PicoWay Resolve laser therapy is non-invasive and non-surgical. A typical session takes only about 20 minutes. Skin is cleansed and a cooling cream is applied for a comfortable experience. Side effects are generally limited to redness and minor swelling, and resolve quickly. There is no downtime, so you may resume regular activities right away.
Depending on the location, depth, size, and type of pigmentation, you get visible results in just a few treatments (only one, in some cases). In clinical studies, PicoWay accomplished “good to complete clearance” of 96 percent of pigmentation spots, and the vast majority of patients were satisfied with their results. PicoWay Resolve can be used alone, or as part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation program including neuromodulators and dermal fillers, or surgical techniques.
