PICO Genesis

The PICO Genesis laser procedure is part of the Enlighten™ laser and takes an entirely new approach to the treatment of pigmentation issues and skin revitalization. This method combines the benefits of two highly effective wavelengths in ultra-short pulses to cause an intense, non-thermal, photo mechanical disruption and remodeling of the upper skin.

PICO Genesis improves the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots, and age spots.

How does the PICO Genesis treatment work?

Everyone’s skin contains a substance called melanin. That gives our skin its color. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin.

How many treatment sessions are required?

A series of PICO Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Your PICO Genesis provider will discuss a treatment plan during your consultation.

What areas can be treated?

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation.

What can I expect during a PICO Genesis treatment and what does it feel like?

Prior to treatment, your provider will clean the area. You will feel the tip of the laser device touch your skin. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, but if you do, your treatment provider may apply cold air or an ice pack for a short time. You should keep the treated area of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection.

Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?

You can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment. You may experience redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment. You can also experience mild itching and crusting of brown spots for several days post-procedure.
