PicoWay Resolve – The fastest laser for sun damage & pigmented lesions removal.
EliteSkin & Lash is proud to offer the technologically advanced, picosecond PicoWay laser sun damage removal which is now available in Colleyville and Southlake Texas area.
Brown spots and areas of uneven pigmentation become things of the past with PicoWay, the amazing laser that zaps skin irregularities away. Featuring the identical PicoWay technology that so effectively removes tattoos, PicoWay Resolve uses a different hand piece to deliver the exact same ultra short pulses of laser energy. These pulses are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) and are capable of breaking down sun damage and pigment into minuscule particles
How does it work?
PicoWay Resolve utilizes holographic fractional technology which means that only a fraction of the skin is affected. The dual wavelength fractional module targets the melanin and leaves the surrounding healthy skin untouched. This new generation laser with its ultra fast picosecond high peak energy requires fewer treatments than other pigment lasers, causes less discomfort and provides better clearance of the pigmentation. Since the least amount of heat possible is transferred to the skin, this technology is safe for darker skin types too.
Once excess pigment is shattered into tiny particles thanks to PicoWay Resolve’s ultra-fast delivery of concentrated high-power energy, it’s easier for the body to absorb and clear the pigmentation. Before long, sun damage, brown spots, splotchy patches and other skin irregularities traceable to things like excessive sun exposure or hormones are gone. In a clinical study of the PicoWay Resolve, 96 percent of lesions had good or complete clearance and 86 percent of the patients were satisfied with the results.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatments only take about 20 minutes in-office with no downtime. Some pigmentation issues may be resolved with a single treatment while others may require a series to achieve optimum results. Some of the pigment problems that PicoWay Resolve can help with include:
- Sun Damage
- Age spots
- Lentigines (liver spots)
- Nevus of Ota (increased pigmentation around the eyes)
- Café-au-lait spots
Take care of minor imperfections and make your skin appear youthful again with PicoWay Resolve. Picoway is one of the best laser for sun damage removal in Colleyville and Southlake area.
“Does it hurt?” is the number one question asked.
It all depends on your pain threshold; our patients describe the treatments as minimal to mild discomfort.
What’s surprising is how many people have suffered through painful laser treatments. Our commitment to delivering a superior service with a focus on managing your pain. To put the importance of pain management in perspective, ask yourself, “Would you go to a dentist who was unable to administer local anesthetic?” If not, why would you want to have your laser treatment in Colleyville without local anesthetic? It is a painful process that can and should be managed. We recognize everyone has different pain tolerance levels and offers a number of affordable numbing options: Topical or local anesthetic (injectable numbing).
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments to fully remove lesions is largely dependent on a number of factors, including the number, size, depth, color, your skin pigmentation, and so much more.
Elite Skin & Lash utilizes PicoWay Laser Technology by Candela, the world’s first and only triple wavelength laser that pulsates with higher levels of comfort, compared to other lasers. PicoWay delivers ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue. These bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact by breaking up the lesion or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.
Treatment sessions are every 6-8 weeks over the course of several months. Your initial consultation will reveal a personalized treatment plan that estimates your number of anticipated treatments.
Prepare For Your Treatment
To ensure that you get the most from your lesions removal treatments, please note just a few simple tips before your appointment.
- Before your appointment make sure that the treatment area is clean. If your lesion is covered by thick hair, please shave beforehand.
- To your appointment wear comfortable clothing that (i) will not rub against the treatment area and (ii) allows you to easily expose the treatment area. The treatment area will be sensitive for a couple of days so you want to avoid irritation.
- After your appointment be sure to follow the aftercare instructions as directed. We will supply the necessary ointments and dressings to care for the treatment area for several days.
- Be sure to have no plans to go swimming in the days following your laser lesion removal treatment. To prevent infection, we advise that you do not soak the treated area for three days after your treatment.
