PICO Genesis: Your Solution To Pigmentation

Are you struggling with pigmentation? Here’s how PICO Genesis can help you even out skin discoloration. 

Pigmentation is a common skin concern. It can occur in any skin type, but people with darker skin tones are more prone to it. Melanocytes, located in the stratum basale layer of the epidermis, are the cells that produce pigmentation. One of the pigments produced by these cells is melanin. The principal goal of melanin is to protect the skin from UV rays. But, when melanocytes are damaged or unhealthy, their rate of production is accelerated by the body, leading to pigmentation. Tackling pigmentation could be challenging, but with the help of the right treatments, you can get rid of it. If you want a clear, radiant and even-toned complexion, you must try PICO Genesis at Biolite.

What is PICO Genesis?

PICO Genesis is a laser treatment that effectively reduces pigmentation and melasma, leaving you with a bright, radiant and even-toned complexion. PICO Genesis delivers brief pulses (one trillionth of a second long) of light energy to the skin using Enlighten picosecond laser technology in two separate wavelengths, 532 nm green light and infrared light. It is a safe solution for pigmentation as it is gentle on your skin. Unlike more invasive laser resurfacing techniques, which run the risk of thermal burns and exacerbating pigmentation issues, the PICO Genesis' ultra-short pulses target and eliminate pigment without damaging surrounding tissue. This quick (takes just 20 minutes) procedure is quite painless and can be used to treat pigmentation on any part of the face or body.

How does PICO Genesis work?

PICO Genesis uses highly-effective wavelengths in ultra-short pulses to cause an intense, non-thermal, photo mechanical disruption and remodeling of the upper dermis. The non-thermal laser used in the procedure breaks down the pigment particles, thus giving you a radiant, even-toned complexion. It also boosts collagen production, thus boosting the overall health of your skin and restoring your natural, youthful glow. And the best part? Unlike other laser procedures that only work on certain skin tones, PICO Genisis effectively reduces pigmentation in all skin types. 

What does PICO Genesis treat?

PICO Genesis is a brilliant solution for a variety of pigmentation-related skin concerns. It can treat the following issues:

  • Brown spots
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Pigmented lesions

Is there any downtime?

High-intensity laser treatments for pigmentation involve significant downtime. They also come with many risks and side effects like swelling, itching, hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation. These side effects often last for several months. However, PICO Genesis involves minimal downtime and side effects. You may experience some mild side effects like redness or swelling. But, these symptoms subside quickly. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. 

How many sessions of PICO Genesis are required?

Compared to conventional laser procedures, PICO Genesis offers quicker and more effective results. Just three sessions are required to treat pigmentation and revitalize your skin. However, depending on the severity of pigmentation, the recommended number of treatments may vary. Results will be visible after just one session. But, your skin may look tighter and more youthful after around three months due to the treatment's collagen-boosting benefits, which take some time to develop.
