We recently introduced the widely renowned, ‘enlighten™’ laser system to our clinic, making us the only clinic outside of Harley Street to have it! The ground-breaking technology behind enlighten™ offers amazing results across a range of skin-related goals.
From the complete and permanent removal of tattoos of all colours, depths, and densities to elevating the overall appearance of skin, the range offered by enlighten™ is hugely impressive.
A very common goal that can be majorly boosted with the help of enlighten™ ‘s PICO Genesis procedure is the removal of unwanted pigmentation. Keep reading to find out more!
What Is PICO Genesis & How Can It Be Used For Pigmentation Removal?
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.
For those looking to remove pigmentation, PICO Genesis can break down pigment through extremely short and high-power picosecond laser pulses.
These laser pulses target the pigment that lies beneath the skin cells causing the pigment to shatter. As the melanin breaks up, the unwanted pigment is absorbed by the body and eliminated naturally.
PICO Genesis For Treating Pigmentation Vs Other Methods
PICO Genesis can effectively target pigmentation such as:
- Brown Spots
- Sun Spots
- Pigmented Lesions
When compared to other treatment methods, the sheer speed of the enlighten™ ‘s laser pulses has been proven to achieve better results in a much shorter period of time, meaning less treatment sessions! 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!
A PICO Genesis procedure takes around 20 minutes, making it ideal for a busy professional. Through the convenience it offers, the treatment has earned itself the nickname – “lunchtime laser”.
