How Do Pico Genesis Laser Treatments Work?
Pico Genesis laser treatment are used for collagen production, rosacea, acne and scars. It provides a laser that delivers concentrated light rays in 3 different wavelengths to smoothen skin. These rays penetrate the skin to cause photo-mechanical disruption and remodeling of the skin, which will ultimately fix its irregularities.
What makes this treatment unique is that these laser pulses are delivered in very short intervals: nanoseconds and picoseconds to be exact. The wavelengths used can also be customized to best suit the condition of the patient’s skin.
This treatment can be used for a wide variety of skin problems. It is particularly effective in treating skin discolorations such as hyperpigmentation, age spots, melasma, and pigmented lesions. The use of Pico Genesis allows for penetration into pigmented molecules without damaging the skin, which is a common problem with traditional laser treatments.
