What is a PicoWay laser and how does it work?

PicoWay laser is a cutting-edge laser technology that is designed to treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne scarring, wrinkles, and pigmentation. It uses ultra-short pulses of energy to target the skin at a picosecond (trillionth of a second) timescale, which allows for precise and efficient treatment with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

The PicoWay laser emits high-intensity energy that breaks down pigments in the skin, such as triggers collagen and elastin production to support skin maintenance. This advanced technology offers a safe, effective, and minimally invasive solution for maintaining smoother, clearer skin.

How is PicoWay laser treatment carried out at EST Clinic?

If you choose to have your PicoWay laser treatment for acne scarring, wrinkles or pigmentation with us at EST Clinic, this is what you can expect:

Consultation

At your initial consultation, one of our dermal clinicians will assess your skin and spend time understanding your concerns. They will answer any questions and ensure you have all the information you need before proceeding with any treatments.

Procedure

During the procedure, you will wear protective eyewear while a handheld device is used to deliver ultra-short pulses of energy to the targeted area of the skin. The length of the procedure depends on the size and location of the treatment area. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure and any discomfort is typically short-lived.

Side Effect and Risks

PicoWay laser treatment is generally considered a safe procedure, however it does carry some potential risks and side effects:

  • Discomfort or Pain: During the procedure, you might feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin.
  • Redness and Swelling: These are common side effects immediately after the treatment and usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days.
  • Skin Discolouration: Hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin) or hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) can occur. These changes are usually temporary but can be permanent in some cases.
  • Blistering and Scarring: Though rare, in some cases, PicoWay laser treatment can cause blisters and, potentially, scarring.
  • Infection: As with any procedure that breaks the skin, there's a risk of infection, though it's relatively rare.
  • Unsatisfactory Results: There's always a chance that the treatment may not give you the results you desire. It often takes multiple sessions to achieve the intended outcome.
  • Eye Injury: If the laser is used around the eyes, there's a potential risk of eye injury, which is why protective eyewear is important during the procedure.

Results and Recovery

Following the procedure, most patients can usually resume their regular activities immediately, although they may experience some redness or swelling at the treatment site. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

How does PicoWay laser address pigmentation?

PicoWay laser treatment effectively addresses pigmentation concerns by delivering ultra-short, high-energy pulses of light that break down pigmented particles in the skin. This stimulates the body's natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production, and ultimately resulting in the clearance of pigmentation and a more even skin tone.
Is PicoWay laser effective for acne scars?

Yes, PicoWay laser treatment can be an effective solution for reducing the appearance of acne scars. The ultra-short pulses of the PicoWay laser target the affected area, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars.
Does Pico laser help with wrinkles?

Yes, PicoWay laser treatment can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. By promoting collagen and elastin production, PicoWay laser treatment can help to plump and firm the skin, leading to a more youthful-looking complexion. While multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results, PicoWay laser treatment offers a safe and effective option for addressing wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
Does PicoWay tighten skin?

Yes, PicoWay laser treatment can help tighten the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, which can lead to a firmer and more youthful-looking complexion. PicoWay laser treatment delivers ultra-short bursts of energy to the targeted area, promoting the natural healing process and leading to improved skin texture and elasticity.
How long does it take to see results from PicoWay?

The length of time it takes to see results varies depending on the specific concern being addressed and the individual's skin type and condition. In general, multiple sessions are required to achieve optimal results, and improvement is typically gradual and progressive over time. Most patients will start to see noticeable changes after the first few treatments, with continued improvement in the weeks and months that follow.
