Zap Away Pigmented Lesions In Picoseconds!

Pigmentation treatment at SCMS is a revolutionary solution to combat unwanted pigmented lesions. Using the remarkable PicoSure Laser, we target and eliminate various pigment-related issues like age spots, sunspots, melasma, and even stubborn tattoos. What makes PicoSure unique is its ultra-fast picosecond technology, delivering energy pulses in trillionths of a second, effectively breaking down pigmented cells while preserving the surrounding skin.

Pigmentation Treatment Corrects:

  • Sunspots and age spots
  • Melasma mask
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Other pigmentation irregularities

Not Just Nanoseconds, We’re Talking Picoseconds!

The PicoSure Laser’s power lies in its ability to deliver ultra-short energy pulses in picoseconds. Unlike conventional lasers that operate in nanoseconds (billionths of a second), our picosecond technology emits ultra-short bursts of energy lasting trillionths of a second. This brief duration allows for precise and efficient targeting of pigmented cells while minimizing heat and collateral damage to the surrounding skin. The picosecond technology sets a new standard in safe and effective pigmentation correction.

The Science Behind PicoSure Pigmentation Treatment

Our pigmentation treatment operates on the principle of photomechanical energy. PicoSure Laser emits ultra-short picosecond pulses, each lasting only one trillionths of a second. These pulses generate intense energy, which is absorbed by pigmented cells, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments. This creates a pressure wave that breaks down the unwanted pigments and stimulates collagen production. As the body’s natural processes eliminate the shattered pigment particles, the skin gradually reveals a clearer, more even-toned complexion.

Your Complete Pigmentation Treatment Experience

Before your PicoSure pigmentation treatment, prepare by avoiding sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners. Inform your practitioner about any skincare products or medications you’re using. Arrive with clean, makeup-free skin for a successful and comfortable treatment.

During your pigmentation treatment, you’ll wear protective eyewear while our trained technician uses the PicoSure Laser to target your pigmented areas. You might feel minor discomfort, often described as a snapping sensation. The session duration varies based on the treated area.

Side Effects
You may experience temporary side effects like redness, swelling, or mild bruising, which usually subside within a few hours to days. Your skin may appear slightly darker before gradually improving. These side effects are typically mild and short-lived.

PicoSure pigmentation treatment involves little to no downtime. You can resume regular activities immediately, and makeup can be applied to cover any temporary pigment changes. Please protect your skin from sun exposure during the healing process to optimize results.

You’ll notice gradual improvements within a few weeks after PicoSure pigmentation treatment, with optimal results usually seen after a few sessions. Results can last for months to years, but long-term efficacy depends on factors like your skin type, exposure to sunlight, and lifestyle.

The number of PicoSure sessions varies depending on your specific concerns, but several sessions are often needed for optimal results. Typically, PicoSure treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart to allow for the best outcomes.
