The enlighten™ is the world’s first and only dual wavelength and dual pulse duration laser system.

This laser is the only system on the market that features both nanosecond and picosecond durations. Through utilising this combination of pulse durations, the enlighten™ can effectively target unwanted pigment and ink.

Also, unlike traditional lasers, the FDA approved enlighten™ laser is completely suitable for all skin tones and types. The laser offers a strong, non-thermal, photomechanical effect and combines this with ultra-short pulse durations. This essentially means that targeted pigment is shattered without any damage being done to surrounding tissue.

Outside of Harley Street, we are the only clinic in the UK to offer treatments using the enlighten™ III (the most advanced enlighten™ laser).


What is PICO Genesis?

PICO Genesis is a skin revitalizing treatment that is carried out using the enlighten™ III laser. This treatment has completely revolutionised the way in which pigmentary concerns can be addressed.

PICO Genesis breaks down pigment and ink through extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses. To put into perspective just how small a picosecond is, it is one-trillionth of a second, and 1,000 times shorter than the ‘nanosecond’ pulses that are used in existing lasers!

What can PICO Genesis do for me?

Through this procedure, you can expect to achieve a brighter and more uniform complexion in less treatment sessions than traditional methods whilst also eliminating the risk of scarring or burning.

What Conditions/Problems Can PICO GENESIS Treat?

Unwanted Pigmentation

PICO Genesis can effectively target pigmentation such as:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Brown Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Melasma
  • Pigmented Lesions

Through PICO Genesis, the pigment that lies beneath the skin cells is targeted and consequently shattered. As the melanin breaks up, the unwanted pigment is absorbed by the body and eliminated naturally. As mentioned above, apart from the unwanted pigment, no damage is inflicted on the surrounding tissue. There is also no downtime involved with this procedure.


Tattoo Removal

Tattoo regret can cause a great deal of worry. Furthermore, contemplating on the effectiveness and potential side effects of tattoo removal methods can create further distress. However, the way in which PICO Genesis can remove ink particles is truly ground-breaking.

PICO Genesis breaks down the ink particles within a tattoo through extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses. The sheer speed and power at which the ink particles are broken down has been shown to remove tattoos more completely and in fewer treatment sessions than traditional lasers.

PICO Genesis can effectively remove tattoos of all colours, depth and densities without leaving any burning or scarring. The treatment can also address the pigmentation left behind from processes such as Semi Permanent Makeup treatments.


The Overall Appearance of Skin

Many of us want to improve the overall look, feel and complexion of our skin. This can be achieved through PICO Genesis which is able to target:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Freckles and Spots
  • Acne

The remodelling of the upper dermis can be achieved through PICO Genesis. In addition to this, the ability of PICO Genesis to also tone the skin and build collagen offers a way to revitalise the feel and appearance of the skin’s surface.

The shockwaves created by the enlighten™ III during PICO Genesis truly provides amazing skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing results.
