Pico Laser Acne
Utilising the latest laser technology, Pico lasers work in ultrashort picosecond laser pulses and distribute energy in short bursts. They can penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin to eliminate the melanin that causes hyperpigmentation.
The fine laser beams disrupt the pigment-containing cells within the skin into much smaller fragments. A pure photoacoustic effect is generated that targets the pigments so the surrounding tissues will not be affected.
Not only will the fragmented pigments be removed by the skin’s immune system, but the smaller fragments also make it easier for the skin to clear them faster thus reducing the number of treatments required. The result is fading and clearing of the affected area, so darker spots on the skin will gradually fade away.
Tiny bubbles are also formed when the laser is performed, using micro-explosions, which will be filled up with collagen, resulting in an “elevated” effect that will minimize enlarged pores and raise depressed acne scars. This makes Pico laser to be an effective acne scar treatment as well.
Numbing cream will be applied to your skin prior to the procedure. The procedure will typically take 20-30 minutes and performed by our highly trained doctor. You will notice some improvement after the first session, with more gradual and drastic results over time.
