Transform your skin from the inside out
Treat acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots and tattoos. The PicoWay® laser is an FDA-cleared picosecond laser that treats acne scars, wrinkles, benign pigmented lesions (dark spots) and tattoo removal. The PicoWay laser first became known for its tattoo and pigment removal capabilities, but it continues to grow in use for acne scars and wrinkles. The PicoWay laser uses different handpieces and laser wavelengths for treatment of these conditions. Your healthcare provider will know which treatment is right for your condition. The PicoWay laser has ultra-short pulse durations and low to no downtime following treatment. Learn more about how the PicoWay Laser in Los Angeles can help you transform your skin.
Understanding the Technology behind PicoWay Laser Treatments
All of our Los Angeles PicoWay Laser treatments use a picosecond laser with high power and ultra-short pulses. A picosecond is a trillionth of a second! The ultra-short pulses with the PicoWay laser are important because they lead to a “photoacoustic” effect that avoids heating the skin rather than a photothermal (or heat) approach that heats the skin and can lead to side effects, such as downtime and scarring.
Because the PicoWay laser uses ultra-short laser pulses, the result is a laser that has low to no downtime after treatment. Users can resume normal activities and even apply makeup over acne scarred or wrinkle treated skin within a day of treatment. The PicoWay laser reaches under the skin for its impact, leaving the outer layer of the skin intact. Targets can be pigment from a tattoo, melanin in the skin that causes dark spots, or areas in the dermis (a layer under the outer skin) where tiny spaces can be created to allow room for new collagen and elastin growth in the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles.
The PicoWay laser uses a high power laser beam with ultra-short pulses to transform your skin from the inside out! With the PicoWay Laser Los Angeles patients can treat acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots and remove unwanted tattoos – all with low to no downtime.
The PicoWay laser uses a photoacoustic, rather than a photothermal effect, which means the skin doesn’t overheat and lead to long downtime. PicoWay laser users typically have low to no downtime after treatment.
Did you know that nearly 40% of those with acne have some degree of scarring?9 Many acne scars result from a loss of collagen in the skin. PicoWay Resolve treatment uses an ultra-short, picosecond laser that reaches below the surface of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and elastin, without breaking the outermost layer of the skin. In clinical studies, 94% of treated areas improved and patients were highly satisfied with results.
Millions of people each year seek treatment for their wrinkles. Wrinkles can be caused by a loss of collagen in the skin. The PicoWay Resolve applicator on the PicoWay system is a non-invasive, needle free treatment option for wrinkles. Resolve uses ultra-short laser pulses to reach under the skin, without breaking the outer layer of the skin. Picosecond lasers are proven to stimulate collagen and elastin.
Skin discoloration is common, yet treatable. Dark spots, or benign pigmented lesions, appear in many people on different areas of the skin. Some spots are related to excessive sun exposure. Others can be caused by hormone changes, often impacting women following pregnancy. Many of these skin discolorations can be distressing and affect quality of life.
The PicoWay system is a high power laser with ultra short pulses that shatters tattoo ink, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. The PicoWay Laser treats a wide range of tattoo colors across a broad range of skin types. Over a series of brief treatments, the PicoWay laser can eliminate most tattoos. That’s why the PicoWay laser is the tattoo removal laser of choice by Removery, the nation’s leading tattoo removal provider.
