How to get rid of acne scars, melasma, sun spots, freckles and even tattoos with minimal downtime
Looking to remove pesky pigmentation from your face or body, mama? PicoSure Laser is your best bet – it’s one of the most established, reputable brands of Pico Laser (a non-ablative laser to battle pigmentation) in Singapore, and gives excellent results when treating a wide range of skin disorders.
Available at local aesthetic clinic Radium Medical Aesthetics, this new alternative to traditional Q-switched lasers (which were previously the gold standard in aesthetic laser treatments, but were often painful with a long downtime) delivers ultrashort laser pulses in a picosecond to stimulate new collagen production in the skin. This means that less heat will be generated and will inflict significantly less damage to the skin due to the state-of-the-art PressureWave technology. It converts laser energy into gentle pressure, squeezing the cells and activating the cell signalling processes to create new collagen without burning or damaging the skin surface.
Unlike Q-switched lasers, PicoSure Laser is suitable for all skin colours and skin types, and also has a remarkable capability in shattering tattoo ink particles! So if you’ve got a tattoo you’d rather remove than live with, PicoSure Laser provides great results even on stubborn ink colours like orange, red and green.
Thanks to the laser’s Focus Lens Array, which delivers 20 times the energy density of a normal PicoSure pulse, you can leave the clinic post-treatment with freshly-rejuvenated skin since there’s virtually no downtime! The unique mechanism shatters the stubborn pigments under the skin without damaging the skin surface by creating intra-epidermal cavities. At the same time, pressure waves are generated to stimulate the skin to induce an inflammatory response to start the healing process immediately.
The PicoSure Laser is:
- U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for tattoo, pigmentation and acne scar removal
- An effective treatment for skin rejuvenation
- Great for mamas in a hurry due to its low downtime and minimal discomfort
- Suitable for all skin types regardless of skin colour
The treatment is not advisable for pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding.
