Laser Rejuvenation

“The world’s first all-in-one Picosecond + Nanosecond + 2 Wavelengths high-powered platform”.
NON-INVASIVE – ALL SKIN TYPES -LESS PAINFUL -LESS TREATMENTS

Unlike vascular conditions that need a longer pulse duration for the energy to be absorbed and coagulate the vessel, pigment particles are much denser, smaller and can be extremely problematic when they are damaged by heat. With a higher peak power and much shorter pulse duration, enlighten offers a strong, non-thermal,
photo mechanical effect that shatters the targeted pigment without causing thermal damage to the tissue that surrounds it.

What is PICO Genesis?

PICO Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve and maintain your skin’s natural glow. Eliminate unwanted freckles, sun spots, and uneven skin tone to reveal a lighter, brighter, and more even appearance in a series of two to three treatments.

How does the treatment work?

PICO Genesis uses gentle non-thermal pulses of laser light to target unwanted pigment and remodel the upper layers of the skin. Over time, the pigmentation will gradually disappear, enhancing your natural glow.

What areas can be treated?

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and uneven skin tone.

What can I expect during a treatment?

As laser energy is delivered to the skin, you’ll feel a sensation that patients often compare to an electric rain. While most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, we may apply a topical anaesthetic to enhance your experience.

What are the possible side effects?

Most patients experience mild redness immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve within 24 hours. Over the course of a few days, the treated sun spots and freckles will become darker and flake off as they heal, revealing a new, glowing complexion. However, in the case of melasma or uneven skin tone the pigment is slowly reabsorbed revealing more even tone.

How many treatments are required?

A series of two to three PICO Genesis treatments is recommended to achieve an optimal outcome. Ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. One of our nurses will discuss a treatment plan during your consultation.
