Pesky, to problematic, pigmentation can affect any one of us. And in this sun-worshipping country that we live in, it’s likely we all have underlying pigmentation just waiting to rear its head.
While there are many creams on the market designed to lighten and brighten pigmentation, laser treatments have proven to have the most success. Here’s why. Laser treatments are designed to penetrate the skin and actually break up the pigmentation. In some case lasers are designed to remove layers of the dermis, exposing the pigmentation and bringing it to the surface.
The PICO Genesis provides ultra-short laser pulses which deliver a photo-mechanical shockwave that not only shatters the pigment but stimulates remodelling in the upper layers of the skin to safely achieve dramatic improvements with fewer treatments.
What is the PICO Genesis™?
The PICO Genesis is a breakthrough, 2-in-1 laser treatment that returns balance + clearance + radiance to your skin, helping you look your very best—naturally.This new procedure provides clients with a dramatic reduction in facial pigmentation and an increase in uniformity in skin tone after just a few treatments.
How Does PICO Genesis work?
The PICO Genesis laser procedure uses a non-thermal laser that doesn’t cause damage to the surrounding tissue. It destroys the pigment, leaving your skin clearer and giving you a more even, uniform complexion.
High-intensity laser treatments rely on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which is often painful and may lead to significant skin redness and downtime. Since pigment particles are very small and dense, they are often difficult to remove. They are also problematic when damaged by heat, which is why high-intensity lasers are often not optimal treatments for pigmentation issues.
If you are looking for a skin revitalisation procedure that is quick and convenient and that also gives you a more radiant, brighter, and uniform skin complexion, PICO Genesis™ might just be the solution. The PICO Genesis laser procedure delivers picosecond pulses that not only shatter unwanted pigment, but also remodel the skin’s deeper layer.
What can the PICO Genesis treat?
Thermal laser resurfacing generally takes 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the technique your doctor uses and the size of the area being treated. It is an outpatient procedure that is usually done in your doctor’s office. In addition to the time it takes to perform the procedure, it also takes about 1-2 weeks for new skin to completely cover the treated area.
Picosecond pulses involve minimal downtime, the treatment takes 20 minutes, and can be completed during your lunch hour.
Fewer Treatments Required to Get Better Results
Previously, several treatment sessions were required to get satisfactory results, but with picosecond pulses, you see results in as few as 1-2 treatment sessions.

Recovery, or downtime, has been a concern with high-intensity laser treatments. Although they can work wonders, the potential for side effects and adverse events often deters patients from opting for laser treatments.
Until now. With PICO Genesis, there is virtually no downtime. In addition, with some high-intensity laser treatments as many as 10 to 15 sessions are required to see results. With PICO Genesis, you will see results in much fewer sessions.
