6 Troubling Skin Conditions that Pico Genesis™ Treats

Living by the Jersey shore has a lot of benefits, but being so near the beach can also wreak havoc on your skin. Even if you were born with a clear and radiant skin tone, too much sun may have left you with brown spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin on your face and body. How can you undo it all?

Jeffrey Gosin, MD uses the Pico Genesis™ laser as an all-in-one skin-solution treatment for his patients at Shore Vascular and Vein Center in Somers Point, New Jersey. Originally developed for tattoo removal, Pico Genesis isn’t just effective and safe, it’s fast, too: Many issues can be resolved in just two 20-minute treatment sessions, no matter how dark or light your skin is. Here are six of the top issues it helps.

1. Sun damage

The sun’s UVA and UVB rays are strong. Strong enough to change the DNA in your skin and cause skin cancer. Even if you wear sunscreen and stay out of the sun during the peak hours of 10 am to 4 pm, years of exposure to sunny summer days may have caused damage. Signs that your skin’s been damaged by UVA and UVB rays include:

Unlike conventional light-based lasers, Pico Genesis can’t damage surrounding, healthy skin. Instead of heating your skin, it sends ultrashort pulses of two different wavelengths of energy into your dermis, the skin’s middle layer.

The energy breaks up unwanted pigmented spots and also encourages your skin to remodel itself with new collagen. Within several weeks, your skin looks clearer, smoother, and tighter.

2. Brown spots

Whether you’re troubled by age spots or just don’t like your freckles, Pico Genesis treatments can help. The laser’s energy targets the pigment in your unwanted lesions and shatters it into tiny pieces. Over time, your body processes and excretes the shattered pigment, leaving your skin clear and spot-free.

3. Melasma

The diffuse brownish or grayish patches of melasma can be difficult to treat. Melasma often appears as a result of hormonal changes, such as pregnancy or taking birth control pills. Because the pigmentary changes in melasma can reach deep into your skin, you may need more than two Pico Genesis treatments to achieve the skin clarity you want.

4. Dull complexion

As you age, your skin cells turn over less frequently, which results in skin that looks drier and duller. And your outer layer of skin doesn’t slough off easily on its own. 

Pico Genesis stimulates collagen remodeling and skin renewal that encourage your skin to act like younger skin. Your skin looks radiant and glowing, just as it did when you were younger.

5. Uneven skin

You may notice that your skin has slight variations in texture and color that even makeup can’t hide. Pico Genesis evens out your skin tone by eliminating hyperpigmented patches. The treatments also improve your overall skin texture by tightening pores.

6. Sagging skin

You’ve noticed that your skin isn’t as resilient or tight as it used to be. You may even be experiencing facial sagging, especially along your jawline and chin.

Pico Genesis treatments stimulate collagen remodeling. As part of this process, your skin flushes away the old, damaged strands of collagen that no longer support it. You create new strands of collagen and new, nourishing blood vessels. Over the next several months, your skin becomes more elastic, firmer, and tighter.
