PicoWay Laser

PicoWay® is an advanced laser solution for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, pigmentation, and even hard-to-treat melasma. Brought to you by Syneron Candela, this revolutionary technology boasts three wavelengths and uses ultra-short picosecond (trillionths of a second) pulses to treat a broader range of skin types in fewer treatments and with greater comfort. PicoWay® can also treat all colors of tattoos. 

PicoWay® delivers ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy targeted at unwanted pigment while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. These pulses break up the pigment into smaller particles that are more easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. Because it emits less heat than traditional lasers, PicoWay® provides a more comfortable treatment with fast results and virtually no downtime. After treatment, patients may experience temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin surrounding the treatment site. Over a few days, the targeted lesions will darken and slough away. Adopting a pigment-regulating daily skincare routine that includes broad-spectrum sunscreen will be highly recommended to prevent subsequent spots.
