PicoWay is an innovative device that uses the most advanced laser technology to treat blemishes such as dark spots, pigmentations and tattoo removal. Securing the approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the machine delivers ultra-short picosecond (a trillionth of a second) pulses to breakdown pigments into the smallest particles which are then eliminated by the body through natural processes.
PicoWay Can Help:
- Hormone pigments (Melasma/Chloasma)
- Nevus of Ota
- Café au lait spots
- Tattoo removal
The biggest advantage of PicoWay over traditional laser technique is its ultra-short laser pulses. Traditional laser relies on the photothermal effect to fracture pigmentation, which could cause thermal damage to surrounding areas. PicoWay, by comparison, uses photomechanical energy to break up the pigments into ultra-fine fragments which are then absorbed by the body for clearance. This means that the heat involved in the process is kept at a minimal level and the skin is protected from overheating. Featuring dual wavelengths of 532nm/1064nm and with its pulse as short as 450/375ps, PicoWay delivers high peak power within a short pulse duration, enabling effective pigment fragmentation while leaving surrounding skin undamaged.
PicoWay allows deep penetration to treat dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions. Particles, even the tiniest ones, can be effectively shattered into the finest fragments. Compared to traditional laser treatments, PicoWay can achieve a more noticeable result with lesser treatment sessions. A high clearance rate and a low recurrence rate is the reason why PicoWay should be the choice.
As an FDA-approved technology, PicoWay is safe on all skin types. Since PicoWay only deals with pigmentation and leaves the outer layer of skin intact, there is low to no downtime after treatment.
Is PicoWay treatment painful?
It will depend on your pain-tolerance level as well as the depth and location of your pigmentation. Normally speaking, PicoWay treatment is less painful than traditional laser treatment. Topical anaesthesia is not necessary.
How many PicoWay treatments will I need?
Again, it depends on many factors such as the depth, location, size and type of your pigmentation. In general cases, the deeper the pigmentation, the more treatment sessions are needed. Nonetheless, the final decision is left to the professional therapists. We suggest each treatment to be done in at least 4 weeks apart, so to allow sufficient time for recovery.
What should I do before the treatment?
Before your first treatment session, we will test your skin’s reaction to PicoWay laser. This is to prevent any adverse effect and to determine the most effective treatment for you.
What should I do after the treatment?
Following the treatment, we may apply a cold or cool compress on your treated area to soothe any discomfort or irritation. Most people could wear makeup on the following day. You could also apply topical antibiotic ointment if recommended. Avoid scrubbing, including using facial scrubs, on the treated area for a few days. It is also important to keep your skin hydrated and sun-blocked.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the treatment, you may find your treated site and the skin around it turns red or lightened. Some people may even experience discolouration for a few months. These are all normal processes and your skin colour would resume as normal after recovery.
