When excess pigmentation and aging signs start appearing on the skin, it is hard to feel confident in your day-to-day endeavors. Perhaps you have some sun spots that are becoming increasingly obvious with each passing day or even an embarrassing tattoo that you conceal daily. 

Regardless of the situation, the PicoWay® laser can be beneficial in reducing these imperfections, as it targets the pigment in your skin. Dr. Ostad offers this kind of treatment for anyone who wants to improve the look of their skin. Read on and find out what the PicoWay® procedure can do for you.

What Is PicoWay® Laser?

The PicoWay® laser is a procedure that delivers ultra-short energy pulses into the skin, targeting various skin conditions. Each pulse is delivered in picoseconds, which equals around a trillionth of a second. This allows for effective and precise treatment without causing unnecessary damage to the skin. 

The PicoWay® laser targets the melanin in the skin, breaking down its bonds from your cells and helping your body expel it naturally. The treatment also creates micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers an automated healing response, leading to new production of collagen

Benefits of the PicoWay® Laser

The PicoWay® laser can bring a series of benefits, including the following:

  • Controlled and Precise Action

Perhaps one of the best advantages that the PicoWay® laser brings to the table is its controlled and precise action. Unlike other lasers that use constant heat to reduce pigmentation, PicoWay® delivers everything through short energy pulses. This makes it an effective option for treating delicate areas around the mouth or eyes.

  • Minimal Potential for Downtime

One more benefit that the PicoWay® laser brings is its minimal potential for social downtime. In their attempt to treat various conditions, many laser procedures can leave your skin feeling red, swollen, or peeling for the next few days. This is not the case with PicoWay®, as the side effects are minimal. Most patients are able to return to their daily routine right after the procedure.

  • Versatile and Effective

PicoWay® is the type of treatment that can help you address various skin concerns, from pigmentation to wrinkles and acne scars. The treatment is safe for almost every skin type and tone, and its gentle action makes it efficient for even the most difficult conditions. PicoWay® can also be used to treat melasma, a condition that is usually difficult to address once it reaches an advanced stage. 

  • Quick Results in One Treatment

Most laser procedures require numerous treatment sessions to minimize the pigmented lesions on your skin. However, PicoWay® is stronger, needing just one session to reduce the imperfection. Only procedures like tattoo removal may require more sessions, depending on how deep the pigment is.

Who Should Get the PicoWay® Treatment?

PicoWay® can be offered to patients who suffer from various skin conditions. This includes pigmentation issues, wrinkles, scars, and even signs of aging. Patients use this procedure to trigger collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin quality. If you wish to remove any tattoos, the PicoWay® laser can also do that within a few sessions.

The PicoWay® laser is a safe option for most skin types, although it is most suitable for those with lighter skin. That said, most patients with darker skin tones can still opt for the treatment if they are not especially prone to hyperpigmentation. A thorough consultation with Dr. Ariel Ostad can help determine if you ae a candidate for PicoWay® laser. If you have an active acne breakout or recently received a sun tan, it is recommended that you wait until the effects pass.
