PICO Genesis™ is a laser procedure that combines two wavelengths of light in incredibly fast pulses to create microinjuries in the upper dermal layer of your skin. Unlike other treatments, PICO Genesis does not rely on heat to damage cells and stimulate your healing response. Instead, the light generated by the laser disrupts the concentration of pigment in your skin, lessening areas of discoloration.
PICO Genesis treatments are sometimes referred to as skin “resurfacing” because the effects are so advanced. Treatments produce a generally brighter, more even complexion.
The PICO Genesis system is a great option for addressing numerous skin conditions with one treatment approach. Some of the more common conditions treated include:
One of the benefits of PICO Genesis treatments is that while pigmentation irregularities are lessened, your overall skin tone and texture also improves.
Because PICO Genesis does not rely on heat to achieve results, there are none of the unpleasant side effects that come with certain other laser therapies. There is no significant downtime, redness, or skin sensitivity after sessions.
Also, high heat isn’t a good approach to addressing dense areas of pigmentation. Removing skin pigment particles is challenging because the particles are so small. PICO Genesis blasts those particles into even smaller pieces, making it easier for your body to process and eliminate them.
PICO Genesis also delivers results with fewer sessions than other laser therapies. That makes it easier to fit appointments into your busy schedule, and can also save money as compared to other treatment options.
In the hours and days after treatment, you might experience some minor skin flaking or swelling, but these effects quickly subside. You’ll begin to see results within a few weeks, and it may take just 1-2 sessions to see marked improvements.
Dr. Watson evaluates your skin and explains how many treatments you’ll need to achieve the best possible results.
