How does Pico
Laser work?

Pico Laser emits ultra-short pulses of laser energy, typically in picoseconds (one trillionth of a second), that are absorbed by the unwanted tattoo pigments or tissues. These rapid pulses generate a photoacoustic effect, mechanically breaking down pigment particles into tiny fragments that are easily eliminated by the body. Additionally, the laser’s high-intensity pulses create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating a natural healing response that promotes collagen and elastin production. This leads to improved skin texture and tone with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.

What happens during the Pico
Laser treatment?

During your Pico Laser treatment, a handheld device delivers ultra-short laser pulses to your skin. You might feel a mild snapping sensation as the laser works, but it’s generally well-tolerated. The procedure is quick, often taking only a few minutes, depending on the treatment area. Post-treatment, you might experience slight redness or swelling, but these effects typically subside within a few hours, allowing you to resume normal activities promptly.

What are the side effects of Pico Laser?

You may experience mild redness, swelling, or a slight tingling sensation after the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically subside within a few hours to a couple of days.

Is there any downtime after Pico Laser?

There is minimal downtime after Pico Laser treatment. You may experience slight redness or swelling, but these effects typically subside within a few hours to a couple of days, allowing you to resume your normal activities quickly.

When will I see the results?

You may start to see improvements after your first Pico Laser treatment. However, optimal results typically become more noticeable after a few sessions as the skin continues to heal and regenerate over several weeks
