When you have to hide your face while going out or attending an event, it can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. All in the name of concealing acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or other skin irritations.

You’ll agree that having spotless skin or a spotless face is the most enticing scenario imaginable. As a result, the best way to maintain your skin’s appearance is to look for the best option.

To combat discolorations, you must improve your natural attractiveness through skin care. Not just any treatment, mind you, but a Pico laser treatment. With the assistance of a professional, you can achieve clear, younger-looking skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

You may have tried various skin treatments with no success. This blog will explain what distinguishes the Pico laser treatment from other laser treatments.

What Is A Pico Laser Treatment?

Pico laser treatment, also known as a “picosecond laser,” is a revolutionary new non-invasive, non-surgical laser skin treatment that addresses a variety of cosmetic issues and can be used on a variety of body parts.

Pico lasers can be used to treat a wide variety of skin diseases and flaws. Tattoo removal, acne scarring, and discoloration are the most common. This treatment is primarily intended for Asian women.

Although lasers are most commonly used on the face, they have also been shown to be safe for other body parts such as the chest, neck, hands, legs, arms, back, and behind.

Further treatments that the Pico laser works for are:

  • sun damage
  • Dark regions
  • Scars, pigmented lesions, and unwanted freckles
  • Melasma
  • stretch mark traces
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

This procedure indicates that laser treatment is available to remove unpleasant body scars like black acne scars.

Why is Pico Laser a unique treatment?

Pico laser treats a wide range of skin conditions, opening up a world of possibilities for those looking to improve their appearance. The majority of aesthetic lasers work in the same way: the machine sends energy pulses into the skin’s layers to promote healing and collagen production.

Pico laser treatment, on the other hand, is a little different in that it uses sound energy intensity to encourage the synthesis of elastin and collagen in the body rather than heat to remove skin discolorations.

The body produces more of these proteins, which results in firmer skin, better skin texture, and smoother skin. This procedure emits energy in incredibly brief bursts, hence the name “picosecond,” which equals one trillionth of a second.

Because no heat is applied during the procedure, laser treatment does not harm the surrounding skin. This means a significantly shorter recovery period and the ability to do things like apply cosmetics and spend time in the sun right away without worrying about the outcome.

Furthermore, the Pico laser is unique in that it is one of the few lasers that is safe and effective for treating all skin types and tones.

What Makes Pico Laser Treatment Different From Other Lasers?

The most advantageous aspect of pico laser treatment is its shorter treatment time due to its shorter pulse duration. Prior to the development of Pico lasers, Q-Switched or nanosecond lasers were the most widely used laser technologies and treatments. Pico lasers have shorter pulse lengths than standard lasers.

As a result, they can treat skin problems more effectively and in less time. Pico laser therapy typically requires fewer treatment sessions and shorter recovery times, though this varies depending on the severity of the skin problem. Because of the fast, brief pulses, there is almost no discomfort during therapy.

Aesthetic laser procedures, such as fractional CO2 laser, are available. The CO2 laser is designed for resurfacing, which stimulates your body’s natural healing process by causing minor skin surface damage.

Although the CO2 laser has produced positive results for many patients, the discomfort and lengthy recovery time make this procedure less than ideal for some. In contrast to the CO2 laser, which requires no cosmetics for 1-2 weeks, no sunlight exposure, and post-treatment redness.

The side effects of the pico laser are not the same as those of the CO2 laser. Because the treatment does not harm the surrounding skin, there is little to no downtime (typically 1-2 days), minimal redness and swelling, and you can wear makeup afterwards.

Typically, the redness and swelling will subside within a few hours to a few days, allowing you to resume your normal daily and social activities. Because Pico Laser is less painful than other laser procedures, most patients do not even need to use topical numbing cream.

Take note of this.

You are free to wear makeup and go outside in the sun, but it may be best if you avoid both. There is a slight risk of skin burning following the Pico treatment, but if you avoid further exposure to UV rays that can harm your skin, it will be very pleasing.

You may be wondering why this is the case. It’s because certain scents and oils in makeup can clog your pores and prevent your skin from healing. As a result, it is best to avoid applying face powder or foundation right after the treatment. On the contrary, applying lipstick, brow gel, and eye makeup is acceptable.

We recommend that after your therapy, during your skin care routine, you gently wash your face with cool water and an oil-free cleanser to avoid irritating the skin.
