FAQ's

What is Pico Rejuvenation Laser Toning Treatment?

Pico Rejuvenation Laser Toning is a treatment that uses an advanced Pico laser to treat pigmentation, acne scarring and large pores. We are the first medical cosmetic clinic in Australia to have this specific model of Pico laser.

Two things make this treatment unique. Firstly, it uses frictional mechanical energy with very little heat, so treatments are more comfortable with less redness and no downtime. Secondly, it delivers energy pulses at an exceptionally rapid rate, which enables the treatment to work more efficiently so you can achieve results with fewer sessions.

How does it work?

The specialised Pico laser rapidly delivers light energy to pigmented tissue beneath the skin. This breaks the pigment down into tiny particles that your immune system then removes naturally.

Because of the rapid rate at which the energy pulses, this treatment works more efficiently than other lasers which often leads to better results with deep melasma and pigmentation.

What happens during the treatment?

Your skin will be cleansed in preparation for treatment and then your clinician will use the appropriate laser handpiece to deliver pulses of energy directly onto the treatment area.

How long does the treatment take?

About 20 minutes per session.

How often should I have the treatments?

3-4 weeks apart.

How many treatments are required?

Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need 4-6 treatments.

What skin conditions does it work best on?

  • Pigmentation
  • Melasma
  • PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation)
  • Scarring
  • Acne & Acne Scarring

Does it hurt?

The Pico Rejuvenation treatment relies on rapid pulses of light energy and very little heat, so there is less discomfort than treatments that primarily use heat energy.

How much does it cost?

Package pricing starts at $400 per treatment*

*Pricing as of April 2018 and may change

Is there any downtime?

None. Pico Rejuvenation uses light energy and very little heat, which means no downtime and very little redness after treatment.

How will my results progress over time?

As your immune system removes the broken-down particles, you will gradually notice more fading of pigmentation after each treatment.

Is there any prepping required?

It’s recommended that you use sunscreen and a pigmentation inhibitor, such as SkinFit Melanofide Pigment Normalising Serum for ten days leading up to treatment.

How long do the results last?

Treatments for skin conditions such as pigmentation are very long-lasting so long as results are maintained by sun protection. You can also ask your clinician about using a pigment inhibitor.

Maintenance treatments may be needed in the future, depending on your skin type, and your clinician can help you determine how often you should return for them.
