The Truth Behind The First Trial Pico Laser Treatment at ClearSK

Introduction to Pico – and where the name comes from 

The Pico laser operates with an extremely brief pulse duration, less than one trillionth of a second (a picosecond). This short pulse primarily induces photoacoustic (mechanical) effects rather than photothermal (heat-based) destruction of pigment or ink particles.

This mechanism works as follows: when the laser’s light energy is emitted at such a rapid pace, it causes quick vibrations in the targeted pigmentation. Consequently, the heat generated is swiftly dissipated. This means that the skin undergoes minimal heat, leading to reduced discomfort. The benefits of this approach include:

  • 1) Efficient pigmentation removal
  • 2) Greatly reduced thermal damage to skin tissues

Pico Laser Treatment and Options Explained 

Pico laser is safe, non-intrusive, and has zero downtime. It can generate a high tensile stress to fragment even the smallest pigmented particles. This means it gives more laser pulses to the targeted area, which is around x100 times faster than Q-Switch laser. When it comes to the fading of pigmentation in the skin, Pico Laser gives up to x2 times faster results as compared to Q-Switch and is more precise when treating stubborn pigmentation on the skin, such as freckles, sunspots, and melasma. It is also more precise, and exceptionally effective at stimulating skin regeneration and skin repair through collagen production.

This makes it safer, and more effective compared to traditional nanosecond lasers, such as Q-switch. However, Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser has its benefits when it comes to tattoo removal, as Q-Switch emits short, high-intensity pulses that cause thermomechanical destruction, fragmenting the tattoo pigments. The results are permanent. 

During a Pico Laser session, patients often report a range of sensations. The treatment involves rapid bursts of laser energy, which might feel like tiny pinpricks or a mild rubber band snapping against the skin. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and any discomfort is typically minimal and brief. The duration of the session varies depending on the area being treated, but it usually lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes.

When can I see the results?

Following the treatment, patients may notice immediate skin brightening. However, the best results are often observed after a few weeks, as the skin continues to rejuvenate and heal. Common post-treatment experiences include mild redness and swelling, which usually subside within a few hours to a day.

Aftercare is pivotal in maximizing the treatment benefits. Keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun exposure is crucial. Patients are advised to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 or higher to protect the treated area from UV rays, which can compromise the results. Additionally, avoiding harsh skincare products and refraining from picking or scratching the treated area helps in the healing process.

Staying hydrated, maintaining a healthy diet, and following a gentle skincare routine further enhances the treatment’s efficacy. It’s important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by the aesthetic professional.

In conclusion, Pico Laser treatment offers a path to rejuvenated skin, blending technological sophistication with minimal downtime. By adhering to pre-treatment preparations, understanding the sensations during the procedure, and following a diligent aftercare routine, individuals can significantly enhance their results. As with any aesthetic treatment, consulting with qualified professionals is vital to tailor the procedure to individual skin types and needs, ensuring both safety and effectiveness.

Mild side effects

Understanding potential side effects and downtime is crucial. Most people experience mild side effects such as temporary redness, swelling, and minor itching, which typically resolve within a day. No downtime is a significant advantage of Pico Laser, allowing patients to resume their daily activities almost immediately after the treatment.

Is Pico Laser Treatment Painful?

One of the first questions many people have is about the level of discomfort they might experience during Pico Laser treatment. Generally, the sensation is compared to the light snap of a rubber band against the skin. The treatment is designed to be tolerable, ensuring patients can undergo the procedure with minimal unease.

Can Pico Laser Be Used on All Skin Types and Tones?

The suitability of Pico Laser for different skin types is a valid concern, especially for individuals with darker skin tones who may worry about hyperpigmentation. Fortunately, Pico Laser is adaptable to a wide range of skin types. This adaptability is due to its ultra-short pulses, which significantly reduce the risk of skin damage. 

What Should I Do To Improve The Results of My Pico Laser Treatment?

Before the treatment, avoid sun exposure and keep your skin hydrated. Post-treatment, protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen and reapplying sunblock every few hours under the sun, for up to 2 weeks after your treatment. Keep it hydrated, and steer clear of harsh skincare products immediately after the treatment. 

Finally, for the best part… the effectiveness and durability of the results! Pico Laser is highly effective for various skin issues, including pigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines. The results’ longevity varies, but with appropriate skincare and lifestyle habits, improvements can be sustained over a long period.

In summary, Pico Laser treatment is an affordable, very low-risk, and treatment that is incredibly worth it! With ClearSK’s Pico Laser only at $68, consult with qualified professionals to receive the best treatments for your skin today!
