What is it?PicoWay is an advanced laser that uses ultra-short picosecond pulses (equivalent to one trillionth of a second!) to eliminate a variety of skin issues without harming the surface.
How does it work?
All PicoWay treatments use a picosecond laser with high power and the shortest laser pulses available. A picosecond is a trillionth of a second! The ultra-short pulses with PicoWay are important because they lead to a “photoacoustic” effect that avoids heating the skin rather than a photothermal (or heat) approach that heats the skin and can lead to side effects, such as downtime and scarring.
The ultra-short PicoWay laser pulses reach under the skin for its impact, leaving the outer layer of the skin intact. The pulses vaporize their targets before the skin has the chance to overheat.
Targets can be pigment from a tattoo, melanin in the skin that causes dark spots, or areas in the dermis (a layer under the outer skin) where tiny spaces can be created to allow room for new collagen and elastin growth in the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles.
The photos show the before (pictured left) and after (pictured right) results for PicoWay on hyperpigmentation and scars.
What are the benefits?
- Treat acne scars
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Stimulate collagen and elastin production
- Lighten discoloration and hyperpigmentation
- Eliminate a wide range of tattoo ink
- Non-invasive and virtually no downtime
Frequently asked questions.
Below is more information you need to know about this treatment.
You may be able to see initial improvement as early as after the first treatment. Typically, multiple treatment sessions are needed but this varies from condition to condition.
The PicoSure and PicoWay lasers both use picosecond technology. A picosecond is about a trillionth of a second, so these devices are differentiated by how they deliver constant bursts of energy that only last for a picosecond.
However, although they have similarities in name, the PicoWay device has several key advantages over the PicoSure laser. For example, the PicoWay (350 picoseconds) has 3 times the full picosecond power and speed than the PicoSure technology (750 picoseconds).
