pico genesis laser skin treatment

Pico Genesis

Pico genesis, the leading revolutionary pigmentation removal treatment that can reduce unwanted benign pigmented lesions and tattoos, safe on all skin types.

The advanced laser technology device, Enlighten 3, is the first of its kind to feature both picosecond and nanosecond pulse duration with 3 different wavelengths to tackle pigmentation in different layers of the skin and safely remove various tattoo colours. Using a non-thermal, photoacoustic technology, the laser breaks down pigment into smaller fragments which will be taken away by the lymphatic system. This can be successfully done by selecting the correct parameters which involve the ideal wavelength, spot size and energy.

Restore your skin’s natural beauty

Along with tattoo removal, Pico Genesis treatments can also be used to revitalise the skin by disrupting the dermis and encouraging natural collagen production, regenerating the skin in fewer sessions than traditional laser technology.

Common Questions

PICO Genesis is a highly effective laser treatment for the skin. This cutting-edge technology combines the benefits of three wavelengths delivered in ultra-short pulses, picosecond and nanosecond, to create non-thermal, photo-mechanical disruption and remodelling of the deeper layers of the skin.

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Benign pigmented lesion including sun spots, freckles, melasma, Hori’s naevus, etc.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Birthmarks (Naevus of Ota)
  • Tattoo removal
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines

The ultra-short pulse durations means amazing results can be achieved with much less downtime than traditional lasers with a far lower risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Improvement can be seen after the first treatment, approximately 2 weeks following the procedure. Skin will continue to improve until 3-6 months post treatment. However, best results require multiple treatments which can be discussed during consultation.

  • No sun-tanning or self-tanners 2 weeks prior to treatment - includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds, sun exposure, etc.
  • Some medications or supplements may increase the risk of bruising. Consult with your clinician
  • Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin for 1-2 weeks prior to treatment (waxing, depilatories, etc.)
  • Notify clinic with any changes to your health history or medications since your last appointment
  • History of herpes or cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment

Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out a consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc. You will then have a private discussion with an experienced clinician who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan and take you through the details of the treatment including pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered. Most patients are able to tolerate the treatment without much discomfort. The patient will experience a warming of the skin during treatment which many clients find relaxing.

We pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience, but also on our thorough consultations that ensure we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. At Clinica Lase, you can be sure that your safety is our first priority.
