Enlighten - PICO Genesis
PICO Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots and age spots – gently, predictably and quickly. PICO Genesis treatments will make your skin appear lighter, brighter, and more even in a series of two to three treatments.
How Does the PICO Genesis Treatment Work?
Everyone’s skin contains a substance called melanin. It’s what gives our skin its color. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance + clearance + radiance to your skin.
How Many Treatment Sessions Are Required?
A series of two to three PICO Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Book a free consultation and see how many treatments you will need.
What Can I Expect During PICO Genesis Treatment and What Does It Feel Like?
After your skin is cleaned, you will feel the tip of the laser device touch your skin. As the laser energy is applied, you’ll feel a sensation that patients often compare to an electric rain sensation. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable. You should keep the treated area out of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection.
What Are the Possible Side Effects?
Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve in several hours. Over the course of a few days, the treated sunspots and freckles will become darker and flake off as they heal, revealing a new, even complexion.
Is There Any Downtime Associated with the Treatment?
Although you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment, you can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment.
