What Is PICO Genesis?
PICO Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment designed specifically to correct discoloration and blemishing throughout the face. What differentiates this treatment from the other lasers on the market is how it delivers a unique set of wavelengths at a rate of one picosecond per pulse.
A picosecond is one trillionth of a full second. That tiny amount of laser energy is enough to penetrate the skin and break down targeted structures without causing any thermal change. In addition to destroying unwanted pigmented lesions, this breakdown also induces the body’s natural healing response, flooding the area with collagen and elastin.
Most laser systems rely on the skin’s ability to convert delivered energy into heat. But these methods cause damage to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and can lead to more intense discomfort after the procedure is completed. No thermal change in the skin means less recovery and discomfort throughout the entire treatment process.
