What is PicoWay?

PicoWay is an advanced laser that uses ultra-short picosecond pulses (equivalent to one trillionth of a second) to treat an array of skin issues. The bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact, which helps break down particles of skin pigmentation. Our PicoWay treatments produce faster results and require fewer procedures with minimal discomfort or recovery time.

Am I a candidate for PicoWay laser rejuvenation?

PicoWay delivers high peak power and the shortest pulse durations to create an effect that transforms the skin from the inside out. You may be a candidate for our PicoWay laser rejuvenation if you want to improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, or remove unwanted tattoos.

What can I expect with PicoWay laser rejuvenation?

PicoWay Resolve is a picosecond laser treatment that works from the inside out to transform the skin. It is FDA approved for treating acne scarring, sun damage, and wrinkles.

This laser delivers ultra-short laser pulses beneath the skin to significantly minimize wrinkles, sun damage and acne scars in a series of brief 15 to 20-minute sessions.

PicoWay lasers make it possible to remove tattoos with minimal discomfort and no anesthesia. We can treat your tattoo with fewer follow-up visits in comparison to other lasers. PicoWay can also remove the largest range of colors—untreatable in the past—including difficult-to-remove sky blue and green inks. The PicoWay laser uses photoacoustic energy, as opposed to thermal energy and can shatter tattoo particles into much smaller fragments, requiring considerably fewer treatments.

What is the recovery like after PicoWay laser rejuvenation?

PicoWay Resolve delivers excellent results with little to no downtime. Cold compresses can help soothe your skin after the treatment. You may experience some redness in the treated areas for a few hours after the procedure. You may also experience peeling of darker spots in the treatment site, which is a normal part of the process.
