Exclusive to Laser Spa Group, our PicoWay hand piece uses holographic fractional technology which means only a fraction of the skin is affected. This leaves healthy skin around the affected area to promote healing and regeneration. Picoway uses extremely targeted and short laser pulses. These pulses can shatter unwanted pigment into much smaller particles than traditional lasers can. Picoway Resolve is next generation skin rejuvenation. It can eliminate benign pigmented lesion such as freckles, age spots, sun spots, melasma, and more.
PicoWay Resolve’s pulses also reach under the skin, without breaking the outer layer of the skin. This has been proven to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer skin with reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and sags.
With it’s ultra-fast delivery of concentrated high-power energy, PicoWay will shatter even tiny pigmented particles, making it easier for the body to clear the pigmentation.
Why is fractional important?
Fractional treatments mean that only a fraction of the skin is affected, leaving healthy skin around the treated area to promote quick healing.
What else can I expect?
Resolve is our new favourite treatment for almost airbrush-perfect skin, this minimal-downtime laser brightens while removing pigmentation and marks, and can leave you with a smooth, beautiful canvas.
This advanced laser solution is safe and effective for all skin types, and can be used for the treatment of acne scars, pigmented lesions, wrinkles, fine lines, melasma, and even tattoos, but this superstar really shines when it gets to work brightening skin tone and improving skin texture. It works fast—using ultrashort picosecond (trillionths of a second) pulses—making the downtime shorter, and the treatment more comfortable than more abrasive lasers.
We usually recommend a series of at least 3 treatments, spaced about 6 weeks apart. The treatment itself isn’t painful but topical numbing can be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment if comfort is a top priority.
The treatment usually takes about an hour, after which SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel and Physical Fusion tinted SPF 50 are applied to protect your skin from the sun. Following your treatment, you will have many red blotches and little red dots (called petechiae) all over my face for up to 7 days, but you are able to cover most of this up with tinted sunscreen, and mineral makeup such as Oxygentix available at Laser Spa Group.
As with most lasers, the PicoWay is typically a series of 3-4 treatments, but varies depending on what we are trying to achieve with using the laser.
Pigmented lesions, birthmarks, freckles, brown spots and age spots are often created from an excessive concentration of melanin in the skin. Melanin is what gives our skin its color and everyone has a different amount. We will evaluate your skin and inform you of the specific type of skin lesion. High melanin concentrations can be caused by many factors but are often due to sun exposure.
PicoWay Resolve provides the most effective non-invasive, non-ablative solution to your wrinkles, fine lines, large pores and acne scaring. This facial uses a 1064nm and 532nm wavelength hand pieces which work to create micro injuries, which in turn, will stimulate new collagen growth. This is the next generation skin rejuvenation. Get the results of a fractional ablative CO2 laser without the downtime.
