Picogenesis is the newest, and most advanced, FDA approved laser technology that provides amazing rejuvenation results, correcting a wide array of skin flaws, providing an overall enhanced appearance. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive and non-ablative laser toning treatment. It is the ultimate facial treatment that revitalizes the skin, fights acne, reduces wrinkles and erases both hyperpigmentation caused by aging (solar lentigines) and melasma in as few as 2-3 treatments!
The procedure takes about 30 minutes. Your face is cleaned, removing all oils and debris. Because this is not a resurfacing treatment there is no need for topical anesthesia. Your eyes are are covered with protective eyewear. The laser treatment feels like “electric rain” and does not have any downtime. There are no post procedural complications like scarring, bruising, or inflammation because the treatment is non-ablative, non-surgical and non-invasive.
The Enlighten 3 laser delivers high level laser energy in picoseconds, which is a trillionth of a second, to selectively target and shatter unwanted pigment lesions, such as solar lentigines and melasma. At the same time, it gently heats the dermis, where our collagen and elastin are formed, to stimulate the production of NEW collagen and elastin. The overall result is dramatically brighter, healthier and more even skin tone and the filling in of fine lines and wrinkles.
YES! This is one of very few lasers that is safe with all skin types, more especially with skin of color, which generally is difficult to treat. We love using this technology on patients with sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma. It is completely safe and effective; great for face, chest, hands, legs and other parts of the body.
