Pigment Removal

Sun and environmental damage on the skin doesn’t just result in hyperpigmentation, but also skin dullness and roughness. If you’re looking to improve your skin texture and even out your skin tone, opt for a procedure that will both treat unwanted epidermal and dermal pigment, plus restore skin radiance.

Procedure

The PICO Genesis™ laser treatment takes an entirely new approach to the treatment of pigmentation issues and skin revitalization, an ideal treatment for those with pigmented lesions or melasma.

The PICO Genesis™ 2-in-1 Laser Treatment harnesses the power and flexibility of unrivaled advanced laser technology to provide a safer and more effective solution that is fully customizable to your skin needs, in a more comfortable experience.

Benefits

As PICO Genesis™ combines the benefits of two highly effective wavelengths to remodel the upper dermis, the result is a brighter, more uniform complexion in less treatment sessions than traditional methods. Laser skin treatments are able to revitalize the skin, but past solutions tended to provide variable results and carry the risks of post-inflammatory hyper- and/or hypo-pigmentation. Laser toning with older and lower quality lasers also results in greater discomfort for patients. The PICO Genesis™ can be helpful in treating brown spots, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and pigmented lesions.

FAQs

You may see results after 1 to 2 sessions. Certain, more severe conditions may require additional sessions. Results are permanent, as long as effort is taken to maintain a clear complexion and prevent new spots of hyperpigmentation, like applying broad-spectrum sunscreen when exposed to the sun and managing conditions like acne or eczema.

As with any type of procedure, your cost will depend on your treatment provider and the number of sessions you require. Your provider can give you more detailed pricing options.
