How is Pico Laser Treatment Different From Other Lasers?

The main and most advantageous feature of Pico laser therapy is that it has a shorter pulse duration, which speeds up the healing process.

Prior to the development of Pico lasers, the most popular laser technologies and treatments were Q-Switched or nanosecond lasers.

Pico lasers have shorter pulse lengths than regular lasers. Thus they can cure skin problems more effectively in less time.

Although it varies depending on the severity of the ailment, receiving pico laser treatment typically entails fewer treatment sessions and a quicker recovery. There is little to no pain during therapy due to the fast, short pulses.

Why is laser therapy with the PicoCare 450 Pico Laser more popular?

Despite the fact that Pico Lasers are comparatively new, the second-generation PicoCare 450 laser has been shown to be successful in treatments for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation removal.

Directing laser energy into the skin that is absorbed by the pigments effectively breaks up the pigments into tiny bits. The immune system is then triggered, which starts clearing away the broken pigments.

A picosecond, which is quicker than a nanosecond, is the pace at which the PicoCare 450 laser emits light pulses, upping the ante on speed.

This makes it possible to finish each treatment session faster and with far greater success.

Due to the treatment’s great effectiveness, fewer shots are required to be discharged, which results in less thermal heat being produced, less discomfort, fewer side effects, and little to no skin irritation.

The Pico laser, which emits laser beams at a substantially quicker rate, is used in the PicoCare 450. This causes a photoacoustic shock wave that expertly and precisely breaks pigments into small pieces.

The shock wave’s speed is distributed over a trillionth of a second, allowing for the tiniest amount of heat to be produced. The skin has no chance to absorb the heat created because the heat can reach the target location and vanish so rapidly.

What are a few advantages of the PicoCare 450 Pico Laser?

Reduced scars

This laser treatment for acne can reduce scars. This is thanks to the combination of Pico Laser + HEXA MLA.

Laser-Induced Optical Breakdown (or LIOB for short) Plasma Cavitation is a unique chain effect that is produced when the Pico 450 Laser and HEXA MLA are used together. This causes “bubbles” under the skin on the treatment region, which has the power to lift depressed acne scars and balance out uneven skin tone. Compared to CO2 Lasers, it has a faster recovery period and is equally as safe and efficient.

Reduced Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Dark Spots, and Improved Skin

Rejuvenation is some of the additional advantages PicoCare 450 offers to offer those who have persistent skin issues, including wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots.

Unlike other laser treatments, which tend to burn away your skin and then force it to recover, the Pico laser uses skin resurfacing to mark the dermal skin layers and promote the synthesis of elastin and collagen.

The increase in collagen production lessens the look and feel of fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, the skin becomes tighter, more youthful, and has a radiant complexion. Their skin will quickly and naturally mend itself.

Effective Tattoo Removal

Q-Switched lasers have been the industry standard for tattoo removal for several years, but their efficacy has never been this great. The bar has been raised in recent years with the introduction of Pico lasers.

The PicoCare 450 laser targets a variety of tattoo ink pigments, including coloured pigments and pigments buried deep within the dermis layers, by delivering energy pulses over a brief period of time.

This produces pressure waves that crush the colours in the tattoo ink into tiny particles. On the more vivid ink pigments, such as red, orange, and yellow, the laser is quite efficient.

Traditional lasers often use heat or light rays to break up the pigments in tattoo ink, which then allows the body to absorb it and lighten the colour.

The PicoCare 450 Lasers are exceptional in this regard since they disintegrate the ink using both light and heat waves.

This lessens the chance of thermal ink damage while assuring that it is a far more effective tattoo removal method because of the faster, shorter energy pulses.

Minimal Pain and No Recovery Downtime

The PicoCare 450 Laser is a non-invasive laser treatment that respects its patients by causing minimal to no pain during and after the procedure, depending on the patient.

Numerous patients have described how the operation felt like “rubber bands cracking” against their skin.

Additionally, the person might feel a slight tingling sensation as a result of the laser’s shock waves pressing against the dermal layers.

After the operation is over, patients will either feel absolutely no pain or just a little bit of redness where the procedure was performed.

Within a few hours, this will pass.
