The PicoWay Resolve Difference
Frequently Asked Questions
Why PicoWay Treatments?
• Treats a wide range of pigmented lesions
• Clearance in just a few treatments
• Better results
• Minimal discomfort
How does PicoWay Work?
Laser light is targeted at unwanted pigment in ultrashort picosecond pulses. These pulses shatter the pigment into very tiny particles which are then easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The PicoWay laser emits less heat energy than traditional lasers providing a more comfortable treatment.
Does the PicoWay treatment hurt?
The degree of discomfort varies with each person depending on the nature and location of the pigmented lesions on the body.
What should you expect and what precautions should be taken throughout this process?
During your first visit, your skin’s reaction to the laser will be tested to determine the most effective treatment. Immediately following treatment, cold or cool compresses may be applied to soothe the treated area. A topical antibiotic ointment may be recommended. In the first few days, take care to avoid scrubbing the area or using abrasive skin cleansers. Over a few days the lesions will darken and sluff off.
How many PicoWay treatments will I require?
The effectiveness of the treatment depends on many factors such as the location, depth, size and type of pigmentation. Some lesions will require several treatments for optimal results, where some can be resolved in a single treatment.
Are PicoWay treatments safe and are there any side effects?
PicoWay treatments selectively treat the melanin pigmentation while leaving surrounding skin undamaged. After treatments, patients will experience temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin around the treatment site. Some patients may also experience a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. The skin will typically resolve to normal pigmentation color.
Can the PicoWay also treat tattoos and other discolorations? Yes, PicoWay can?
Yes, PicoWay can also treat multi-colored tattoos.
