What Does PicoWay Laser Treatment Do?

PicoWay is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that uses very short bursts of laser energy to treat minor skin imperfections and signs of aging, leaving you with renewed, younger-looking skin.

How Is the PicoWay Laser Different from Other Lasers?

Originally used for tattoo removal, this breakthrough technology uses the shortest laser pulse available on the market today – measured in picoseconds, or trillionths of a second – and is faster than any other laser in its class.

How Does PicoWay Laser Treatment Work?

The PicoWay laser breaks down pigmentation into the tiniest particles possible, which are then gently absorbed by the body. PicoWay laser treatment also stimulates collagen production, helping to rejuvenate the skin, heal scars, and remove wrinkles.

The benefit of using such short laser pulses is that we can precisely target your treatment areas while preserving the surrounding tissue. At the same time, the PicoWay laser transfers the least amount of heat to your skin, minimizing your discomfort during the procedure – and for some patients, removing it altogether.

What Conditions Does PicoWay Laser Treatment Resolve?

PicoWay non-surgical laser treatment can reduce or eliminate many types of skin imperfections, including:

• Freckles
• Age spots
• Liver spots
• Sunspots
• Café-au-lait spots
• Wrinkles
• Acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Melasma
• Tattoos
• And more

What Happens During PicoWay Laser Treatment?

After testing your skin’s reaction to the laser, your Forefront dermatologist will use a handheld device to deliver laser pulses directly to any problem areas. You will be required to wear protective eyewear during the procedure, which should only take 30 minutes or less.

Are you always on the go? PicoWay laser treatment can easily be done over your lunch break or any other time that’s convenient for you.

Does PicoWay Laser Treatment Hurt?

The PicoWay laser emits less heat than traditional lasers, providing a more comfortable treatment. Most patients report only mild discomfort and do not require a topical anesthetic after the procedure.

What Happens After PicoWay Laser Treatment?

Another huge plus: PicoWay laser aftercare requires little to no downtime. You may experience temporary discoloration, reddening, or a mild stinging sensation, but they should resolve themselves quickly. Your skin will be more sensitive to light, so be sure to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen and a hat outdoors for a few weeks after treatment. Otherwise, you can get back to your usual routine right away.

What Results Can I Expect From PicoWay Laser Treatment?

Some cosmetic treatments take several weeks for results to be seen. The low-energy PicoWay laser allows skin to heal faster, giving you smoother, blemish-free skin in less time.

The effectiveness of the treatment depends on many factors, such as the type of skin imperfections you have, where they’re located, and their size.

Some patients are happy with their results after just one PicoWay treatment, while others opt for multiple sessions. Your Forefront dermatologist can provide you with a personalized treatment plan for optimal results.
