Lasers have been used for many years to treat scars, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, acne, etc. Although many laser treatments can produce favorable results, there is always a risk of scarring and the downtown while healing can be significant. The cost of some laser treatments can be thousands of dollars and may require time off work to heal. Many people do not have the money or the time, however they may be searching for an alternative treatment.
What is the PicoFractional Laser Treatment?
The PiQo4 Laser by Lumenis Aesthetics is primarily associated with tattoo removal. This amazing laser uses photoacoustic sound waves and energy to bust ink into small particles so the body can remove the pigment. These same sound waves can also cause a process called neocollogenesis (new collagen growth) by microscopically stimulating the dermis, which is the live layer of the skin. The photoacoustic waves initiate an enhanced inflammatory healing response resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin. The PiQo4 utilizes nano and picosecond technology which reduces the thermal (heat) damage to the skin during treatment, making it a perfect laser treatment for people on the go!
