                                                                What is Pico Laser?

At Skincare Laser  Clinic, we are committed to investing in the latest and most advanced unique technology to deliver the best results. PicoCare delivers brightening results 1000 times quicker than the usual laser pigmentation removal methods! PicoCare is your one-stop solution to having a bright and spotless face! It uses frictional mechanical energy with very little heat and delivers energy pulses at an exceptionally rapid rate. This breaks the pigment down into tiny particles that your immune system then removes naturally. Picocare Laser treatments  include treatments for pigmentation, melasma, PIH, wrinkles, open pores, acne and acne scarring. Due to the advanced technology results can be achieved more comfortably, with minimal side-effects and with fewer treatments than any other laser. Pico Laser can be performed on your underarms to brighten and lighten the dark pigments in that area.

Pico Laser Melasma + Hydrojelly™ Mask

How does it work? Picocare’s lightning fast 450 picosecond pulse duration shatters the targeted pigment in your skin into infinitely small particles that can be easily removed by your body’s natural elimination processes. And it’s ultra-precise. This means there’s minimal risk of damage to surrounding tissue, while the pigment is more easily and efficiently removed. A major advantage of Picocare laser is that there is no downtime or very minimal interruption and minimal risk of sides effects.

Electrolyte Infused Hydrojelly™ Mask (tailored only for you) will provide the skin with a blast of essential electrolytes to protect skin from dryness and fatigue. Instantly soothing, anti-inflammatory prevents cell damage caused by free radicals, helps reduce redness.

Picosecond laser targets and destroys almost all types of benign pigmented lesions with excellent efficacy and clinically proven results. This is the most advanced and acclaimed technology for non- invasive fading of skin pigmentation. It involves the use of ultra-short pulses of laser light (picosecond duration) which can shatter surface pigment but also cause a cascade effect which can result in remodeling of collagen in the lower layers of the skin.

Suitable for epidermal pigmentation: sunspots, age spots, freckles, PIH, photo damage.

How does it work? Picosecond laser targets and destroys almost all types of benign pigmented lesions with excellent efficacy and clinically proven results. This is the most advanced and acclaimed technology for non- invasive fading of skin pigmentation on the face and body.  It involves the use of ultra-fast pulses of laser light (picosecond duration) which can shatter surface pigment but also cause a cascade effect which can result in remodeling of collagen in the lower layers of the skin.

Spot treatment: The laser targets only the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment.

Pico Laser uses ultra-short pulses of laser energy to target and break down the excess melanin responsible for hyperpigmentation. The Pico Laser's rapid delivery of energy allows it to target the specific area without damaging surrounding tissues, making it a safe and effective treatment for underarm/bikini darkness.

Non-Invasive: Pico Laser is a non-surgical procedure that requires no incisions, reducing the risk of complications and eliminating the need for lengthy recovery periods.

Quick and Convenient: Pico Laser sessions are typically quick, lasting only 15-30 minutes, making it a convenient option for individuals with busy schedules.

Minimal Discomfort: The process is generally well-tolerated; some clients may experience mild discomfort during the treatment.
