Pigmented lesions on the skin or hyperpigmentation can be really uncomfortable. It even sometimes affects the confidence of the person. Getting of them can be a pain not to mention trying to have an even skin tone. It does not always have to be that hard to get rid of skin lesions and get a uniformed skin tone thanks to Enlighten PICO Genesis.
Enlighten PICO Genesis is a non-invasive treatment of getting rid of pigmented lesions such as hyperpigmentation, sun spots, age spots, brown spots, pigmented lesions and melasma using the enlighten picosecond laser system. PICO Genesis works really well on sensitive skin and it has no downtime or any discomfort. It uses a higher peak power than most lasers and it has a strong photo chemical and non-thermal effect which shutters the pigment without causing any form of damage to the surrounding tissue.
The picosecond laser was originally developed for tattoo removal but it is now being used to treat a variety of conditions such as reducing hyperpigmentation, toning the skin and building collagen.
How the Enlighten PICO Genesis works
It uses photo-chemical, non-thermal laser energy to shatter the pigments and at the same time remodels the upper dermis thus leaving you in with a brighter and an even skin tone. The procedure takes just about 20 minutes which is great if you are a busy person and it also it is virtually pain free and it has no downtime hence you can go back to your usual activities immediately after.
There might be some light flaking or minimal swelling with aggressive cases but that goes away within a short period.
The number of treatments required depends on how aggressive the pigmented lesions are but usually it takes about two to five treatments spaced two weeks apart to achieve the optimal results. This is why it is different from other lasers because other lasers require you to sometimes get up to 15 sessions for optimal results. However with Enlighten PICO Genesis you might start seeing the results after just the first session.
Who is the ideal candidate for PICO Genesis?
The Enlighten PICO Genesis laser procedure can benefit virtually anyone as it works well on all skin types.
