Pico Laser for Dark Spots / Age Spots
Pico laser, the laser that treats ALL skin tones
We use the Pico Genesis laser for ultra short pulses that don’t generate heat. It photomechanically disrupts the dermis, causing hyperpigmentation caused by sun spots or melasma to rise to the surface and fall off. This is ideal to treat dark spots on darker skin colors that are sensitive to and may burn from other laser treatments.
Conditions treated by Pico Genesis:
-dark spots, brown spots, sun spots, age spots
-stubborn hormonal melasma
-fine lines and wrinkles
*for minorities: Our Pico Genesis laser doesn’t use heat. This means that the skin of Asians, Latinos, and African-Americans WON’T BURN the way it does with traditional IPL light therapy.
*for Caucasians: PICO Genesis laser is better than IPL for White skin when it comes removing brown spots. With Pico Genesis laser, a patient may need 1-2 treatments instead of 3-4. This treats stubborn dark spots that don’t respond to IPL.
*for melasma: Unlike other lasers, Pico Genesis laser treats melasma, which notoriously worsens and darkens with heat.
*for men: Pico Genesis laser is also ideal for men who wish to remove sun spots on the face without hair loss that occurs with IPL.
How is Pico Genesis different from an IPL or Laser Genesis photofacial?
Unlike Pico Genesis laser which treats only brown spots, Limelight IPL evens out overall skin tone by treating redness as well as brown spots. This works well for light/White skin. Of note, IPL targets redness more effectively than brown spots, so stubborn black spots may later be treated with Pico Genesis laser. Laser Genesis doesn’t target discoloration, but addresses scarring, stretch marks, active acne, spider veins, and rosacea.
