DISCOVERY PICO LASER

Discovery Pico Laser

Discovery Pico Laser is a non-ablative laser that is mainly used for removal of pigmentation, acne scars, skin rejuvenation, brightening and tattoo removal.

The Discovery PICO is also currently the most powerful laser of its class in the market, with the ability to generate consistently higher energy levels even when using large treatment spot sizes. When the picosecond pulses are delivered, it creates a photoacoustic effect to blast pigment into a ‘dust’ which is subsequently much easier for the body’s immune system to eliminate, giving faster and more complete clearance of pigment issues in fewer sessions.

The shorter pulse duration also means that the skin heats up less and this reduces the risk of hyper-pigmentation which can sometimes form due to laser procedures.

How Does it work?

When the laser light is being absorbed by the pigmented lesions, the light will vibrate, fragments the particles into really thin “dust” and breaks up melanin and pigment particles in “picosecond” pulses.

The Pico Laser pulses generate a pure photoacoustic effect which targets the pigments without affecting the surrounding tissues. These fragmented pigments are then removed by the skin’s immune system.

Most patients describe the laser feeling like tiny warm pricks on the skin.

This treatment Is Ideal for Those looking for:

  • Pigmentation reduction
  • Brighter and tighter skin due to collagen stimulation
  • Reduction in fine lines
  • Faster and more effective removal of tattoos

How long does each treatment take?

A treatment typically last between 20-30mins, depending on the condition or treatment area

Is there any pain or downtime?

PICO-toning treatment has no down time. However, after pigment removal treatment for pigmentation or tattoos, the doctor may use more aggressive settings, you will have mild swelling and redness on the skin surrounding the tattoo or pigmented lesions, but this generally subsides after 30-60 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

For some patients, they may see some slight redness but it will go away within a few hours.

What results should I expect?

For best results, approximately 5-10 treatments will be required.

How many treatments will i need?

For best results, approximately 5-10 treatments will be required.

There are so many different lasers? How would I know which suits me best?

The Discovery Pico, being a second-generation pico laser, generates the highest peak power is the most powerful dual wavelength pico laser in the world. This ensures that results are more effective with lesser sessions. Non-genuine pico lasers are unable to generate the speed and may give different results or result in burns.
