The PicoWay difference
Laser technology has been used for some time in cosmetic dermatology. However, PicoWay Resolve is a new generation of aesthetic laser. Most laser devices emit energy at a rate of one billionth of a second. PicoWay Resolve pulses at a trillionth of a second – a thousand times faster. Picosecond pulses optimize laser safely, providing maximum effectiveness at peak power.
In addition, PicoWay Resolve is a dual wavelength technology. Technically called a “fractional picosecond modality,” 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths of light make treatment ideally suited to skin rejuvenation.
Benefits of treatment
- Versatile – PicoWay therapy softens lines, and improves the appearance of wrinkles. It also diminishes pigmentation irregularities such as age spots, that add years to your face.
- Fewer treatments – In some cases, just one creates desired results.
- Minimal risk – The ultra-short pulses from PicoWay effectively deliver energy to the targeted deep skin layers, with the least amount of heat transfer into other tissues.
- Little discomfort – You only feel treatment when the laser is penetrating skin. Since PicoWay pulses are super-fast, you feel little discomfort during the procedure.
- Safe – PicoWay is FDA approved for skin rejuvenation with little or no downtime.
Depending on the patient’s unique physiology and aesthetic goals, Dr. Menkes may suggest PicoWay laser treatment as a sole remedy for wrinkles. Or, he may recommend PicoWay as part of a personalized, comprehensive, non-surgical program for skin improvement. Chemical peels, neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and skin rejuvenation work well in coordination with laser therapy.
