Pico Laser Treatment is the most popular Colored Spots Removal treatment in these years. What’s the amazing effect of Pico Laser, and what’s the benefit of it comparing the traditional laser?

(Understand first: Different kinds of colored spots and how they are formed)

The difference between Pico Laser and Traditional Laser starts from what is ”PICO”. ”Picosecond” is a temporal term.  Pico laser can apply the shock wave of laser device in an extreme short time to break melanin. On the other hand, traditional laser technique applies”nanosecond ”to heat up the skin to separate the melanin in the treatment which makes the skin turn red obviously while the pico laser technique can totally avoid this situation by the way it cracks the pigments.( pico-second is 1000 times faster than nano-second.)

Let’s get deep into it. What’s the difference between these 4 treatments:

PicoWay

PicoWay is certificated by American FDA, applying 1064nm/532nm/785nm 3 different waves with its’ pulse as short as 450/375ps and as wide as 300ps, solving the different issues on the skin effectively and flexibly. The concentrated head of the device gather and multiple the laser energy in a very short time, healing the skin with high-energy。

The Effect Of The Treatment

PicoWay makes the arrayed light in 100% holographic pixel, spreading the light and concentrating it again to make Cavitation Effect in optics to destroy pigments and stimulate collagen in dermis. Through different length of wave, it can concentrated in both surface and dermis at the same time to improve the skin thoroughly.

Treatment Times

For shallow skin issues, it requires 1-3 treatments, while for deep skin issues, it requires 4-6 times.

Applicable for:

PicoWay is especially applicable for those who have deep and shallow colored spots, tattoos in black and red, rough pores, uneven skin color and other issues.

Side Effect

It might show redness in the skin and light crust after the treatment.

After Treatment

1)No rub and knead the part of the skin applied the treatment. 2)Stop using the skin care products containing Alpha-hydroxy acid and Retinoic acid. 3)No tear down the dead skin in force after the wound is encrusted. 4)Enhance in moisturzing and sun protecting.

Reference Price

HK$3,000 - $8,000。

PicoSure

PicoSure is certificated by American FDA, applying the professional 755nm-length  single-wave which makes a great effect in absorbing melanin, and width up to 750ps. Meanwhile, the focus lens array of Picosure can reflect the huge laser energy into different hive-shaped focus lens to break melanin with concentrated laser. The shock wave of the laser can stimulate collagen synthesis in dermis.

The Effect Of The Treatment

PicoSure, based on pressing the short pulse, applies smaller energy to boost it into the great energy, and break the stable melanin into tiny units which are easier to detoxify in metabolism. The energy can be delivered to dermis, stimulate collagen synthesis and relieve deep colored spots.

Treatment Times

According to different skin issues, it requires different times of treatment. For the shallow skin issues, it requires 2-3 times, while for the deep skin issues, it requires 4-7 times.

Side Effect

It might show redness in the skin and light crust after the treatment.

Applicable for

PicoSure is applicable for positive pigments, dullness, scars, wrinkles, protruding acne and depression skin.

After Treatment

1)No direct sun exposure, preventing pigmentation. 2)No water. 3)No whitening, scrubbing and acid products. 4)Moisturizing. After the hydrating essence, apply skin care product containing fat to help to keep moisture.

Reference Price

Around~HK$4800。

Discovery Pico

Discovery Pico, from Italy, certificated by American FDA, has the pulse time for 370 picoseconds, making the best energy conveying. It applies the mechanical focus light shock wave theory and Refix high technique super energy lens, to focus and enhance the laser energy at the same time, reaching it to the base of the skin. Laser can breack the colored spots in a very short time. Discovery Pico pulse reashes 450 ps. The faster it is, the less damage it causes to the skin and less possibility of turning black in reversed way. Discovery Pico has another 3 different energy devices to choose which are aimed at different skin issues in different depth.

The Effect Of The Treatment

Discovery Pico has the best energy-exporting device in 800mJ, better than its’ pico laser device, especially good at solving tough protruding and depressing acne pockmarks. Meanwhile, it applies double wave lengths to stimulate collagen synthesis effectively to tighten up the skin.

Side Effect

Light redness, swollenness and sense of burning.

Applicable for

DiscoveryPico is applicable for those who have tattoos, colored spots, pockmarks, rough skin, rough pores and capillarectasia. Especially, the treatment is NOT for those who have skin diseases, sensitive skin and who are pregnant.

After Treatment

1)No over sun exposure 2)No whitening and  Retinoic acid contained products. 3)Enhance moisturizing.

Reference Price

Around~HK$980。

Enlighten

Enlighten, certificated by FDA, aplies the double wave length 1064nm/532nm which are most popular among Asian. Combined double pulse design with pico-naco technique, it first breaks the big colored spots with naco laser, and then crashs them into tiny units with pico laser. The users can change the wave length and energy strength as they prefer, to solve different skin issues in deep, medium and shallow layers.

The Effect Of The Treatment

Enlighten second generation golden hive headed focus lens array can make the energy get deep into the dermis stably, while its tiny light spot can avoid causing wounds in the skin surface, which can stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis, repairing and regenerating depression skin tissues.

Treatment Times

For the simple skin issues, it only requires one treatment to make the effect, while for the stable dark spots, it requires 2-3 treatments.

Applicable for

Enlighten is good for those who have pockmarks, rough pores, tattoos, wrinkles, and colored spots in deep and shallow layers.

Side Effect

Light redness, No encrusted

After Treatment

1)Avoid places with high temperature. 2)No sun exposure and water. 3)Stop any kind of laser and exfoliation treatment. 4)No whitening and Acid contained products.
