What is the PICO Genesis™ Laser Treatment?
PICO Genesis™ is laser skin rejuvenation treatment that helps treat pigmentation and revitalizes the skin. It uses a different approach than conventional laser skin treatments by combining two highly effective wavelengths and providing them in ultra-short pulses. These intense pulses help to remodel your upper dermis to help remove unwanted freckles and age spots, improve skin tone and texture, and bring back your skin’s youthful, healthy glow.
At Midtown Med Spa, our clients use the PICO Genesis™ laser skin treatment to help improve the overall appearance of their aging skin, especially those wanting to target:
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage and brown spots
- Loose skin
- Age spots
- Pigmented lesions
How Does the PICO Genesis™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Work?
There are many laser treatments available today that are high-intensity, relying on intense heat energy to remove the pigment from your skin. These treatments are often painful and lead to redness and downtime. PICO Genesis™ uses a non-thermal laser that does not cause damage to your skin and only destroys unwanted spots. Using ultra-short pulses in wavelengths unique to PICO Genesis, the lasers remove pigment while protecting your surrounding tissue, leaving your skin looking radiant without the redness or swelling experienced from conventional laser skin treatments.
