To learn more, call Dr. Gosin to schedule your consultation or book online.
The Pico Genesis laser system uses ultra-short laser pulses, or picosecond pulses, to treat pigmentation, tone skin, and build collagen. Originally developed as a device for removing tattoos, the Pico Genesis laser avoids the use of high-intensity heat common in other skin treatment options. This means less discomfort, less redness, and less downtime.
The Pico Genesis laser treats a variety of skin conditions, including:
Pico Genesis treatment also promotes your body’s natural collagen production process, helping improve skin elasticity and shine.
Unlike traditional laser skin resurfacing treatments, Pico Genesis is less likely to cause adverse skin reactions after treatment. Some of these reactions include itchiness, redness, and swelling, and sometimes could even lead to scarring or bacterial and fungal infections.
The picosecond pulses that reduce the chance of these adverse reactions also allow for very little downtime following your treatment. The end result is faster, more effective treatments in fewer procedures, with little in the way of side effects.
Prior to treatment, Dr. Gosin applies a topical anesthetic to the areas receiving treatment. Once your skin is ready, Dr. Gosin uses the Pico Genesis handheld device to deliver the picosecond bursts of energy to your skin. This breaks up skin pigment, restoring a more natural look to your face.
Once treatment is complete, Dr. Gosin will bandage the treatment areas. The entire procedure usually takes no longer than 20 minutes, meaning Pico Genesis is the perfect lunch break procedure.
After your treatment, your skin requires 1-2 weeks to regrow and cover the treatment area, and you should see gradual improvements to the area over this time. Some skin conditions can require multiple treatments for best results. If this is the case, Dr. Gosin will recommend scheduling a second treatment sometime after this initial recovery period.
If you want a fast and effective laser skin rejuvenation treatment without many of the side effects of traditional laser therapy, Pico Genesis laser treatment might be for you.
