Pico Laser in Singapore: What You Need to Know about PicoWay®

Pico Laser in Singapore: What You Need to Know about PicoWay®

Skin pigmentation issues arise from various factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, and ageing. Among our various treatments, we offer PicoWay®, an ultra-short, picosecond, laser treatment for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots, pigmentation and tattoo removal. PicoWay® is also used for skin brightening. In this article, we will provide you with everything you need to know about the Pico Laser treatment, covering its purpose, benefits, number of sessions required, as well as safety precautions.

What is Pico Laser Treatment For?

The Pico Laser Treatment is a non-invasive treatment that operates using ultra-short pulses measured in picoseconds, which generates pressure waves that specifically target pigmented cells. This will help with: 

  • Pigmentation removal: The Pico Laser breaks down excess melanin in the skin, reducing the appearance of dark spots, freckles, and melasma.
  • Skin rejuvenation: The Pico Laser can also stimulate collagen and elastin production, smooth out uneven skin texture, and lighten skin tone.

What are the benefits of Pico Laser?

  • Clinically Proven: A long-term study evaluated the Pico Laser and found it to be clinically effective in treating photoaging.
  • Non-invasive and requires no downtime: Our Pico Laser treatment is a quick and convenient procedure that allows you to resume your daily activities after the session.
  • Precise and targeted: The picosecond laser pulses of PicoWay® can selectively target pigmented areas or acne scars, dark spots and melasma, minimising damage to the surrounding skin.
  • Minimal discomfort: While individual pain tolerance may vary, most patients describe the sensation as a mild tingling or stinging, which is well-tolerated without anaesthesia.

How many sessions of Pico Laser should I do?

The number of Pico Laser Sessions required depends on various factors.

  • Size and Depth of Pigmentation: Larger or deeper pigmentation may require additional sessions. 
  • Skin’s Response: Overall skin health, characteristics of the pigmentation, skin types and skin tones contribute to the number of sessions required. 

What should I avoid before/after Pico Laser?

Generally, the Pico Laser is safe and effective for an increasing range of dermatologic conditions. However, to ensure the best outcome and to minimise the risk of complications:

  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Stay away from hot showers and sauna
  • Avoid skincare products or exfoliants with harsh acids
  • Reduce the usage of topical creams or medications
