Pico Laser Toning
Pico Laser Toning breaks down pigmentation into tiny fragments and destroys melanin – a hyperpigmentation producing cell in the body. At the end of treatment, dark and dull spots will gradually fade away in a natural manner, leaving the complexion clearer and more even-toned.
Pico Laser is also able to revive collagen and elastin production which is great for treating fine lines and skin discoloration issues.
How Is Pigmentation Formed?
Melanin is a natural skin pigment that is responsible for our skin, hair, and eye colour; and it is produced by cells called melanocytes. Due to increased levels of melanin in the skin, pigmentations such as melasma, sun spots, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) are formed. As excessive sun exposure stimulates melanocytes, it triggers uneven production of melanin and eventually results in uneven dark spots known as pigments.

How Does It Help?
Due to the laser’s short pulse duration, picosecond laser pulses can deliver more energy and fire more shots within picoseconds. When the laser is delivered to the pigmented lesions, the laser energy breaks down stubborn pigments into tiny fragments which will be removed by our body. This is known as the photoacoustic effect.
The Pico Laser pulses generate a pure photoacoustic effect that targets the pigments without affecting the surrounding tissues.
Pico Laser vs Q-Switch Laser
Pico and Q-switch lasers operate by delivering laser pulses to the area of interest on the skin. However, Pico Laser delivers these pulses and breaks down pigmentation into smaller fragments much faster than Q-Switch Laser. Thus, results from Pico Laser are more effective with fewer treatment sessions compared to using Q-Switch Laser.
