New Groundbreaking Pigmentation and Melasma TreatmentMay 8, 2018
The brand-new equipment we got in for our Pico Rejuvenation treatment is a bit of a game-changer when it comes to treating pigmentation, such as melasma or sun spots, and removing tattoos. After reviewing the amazing results from the Picocare 450 laser’s international clinical case studies, we decided that we had to be the first medical cosmetic clinic in Australia to have one. After weeks of our own rigorous testing and training, we are happy to offer it to our patients.
Most lasers used for treating pigmentation, such as melasma, use heat to target and break down the melanin beneath the skin. The same method is used in tattoo removal to break down pigmented tissue. Your immune system then attacks the broken bits of pigment and removes them naturally.
What makes the Picocare laser such a game-changer is the incredible speed at which it delivers pulses of energy; only a tenth of a nanosecond. The faster pulses mean that the machine works more efficiently, breaking the pigment up into smaller particles, so the body can remove them much more efficiently and you won’t need as many treatments to achieve a good result. This laser is also more effective at breaking down stubborn tattoo colours like green and blue.
The Picocare laser is also unique in that it uses less heat than traditional laser treatments, relying instead on frictional mechanical energy with only a little bit of heat to break up the pigment. This means that treatments can be more comfortable and require less downtime.
If laser treatments that depend on heat are done with improper settings or without the thorough safety precautions that are used in medical cosmetic clinics, there is a risk of actually damaging the pigmented tissue and creating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). The good news is that the fractional mechanical energy of our new Pico laser can be used to treat PIH caused by other treatments.
