PIQO4™ for Skin Rejuvenation
Did you know?
Your skin, to protect itself from the damaging effects of the sun, increases its production of melanin. The sun causes an uneven increase in melanin production, which produces irregular coloring or pigmentation of the skin. Our laser treatments can safely reverse these changes, leaving you with radiant and youthful skin.
Don’t let skin discoloration and sun damage be the first impression you make! Shed those embarrassing skin spots with our proven, non-abrasive skin color correction and rejuvenation treatments. Using our state-of-the-art, FDA approved Piqo4 laser technologies, we can quickly and effectively eliminate unsightly brown spots, pigmented lesions, and skin tone unevenness, so you can look your best and face the world with complete confidence.
What is Pico4™?
The PiQo4™ is a revolutionary laser that offers a new approach to removing tattoos, pigmentation and provides comprehensive skin toning and rejuvenation based on photoacoustic energy. The PiQo4™ is the only 4 wavelength treatment to use both Pico & Nano energies to remove undesirable pigments.
Unlike other lasers, the PiQo4™ does not use heat. Instead, it uses acoustic energy for neocollagenasis (the process of making more collagen). Since heat is not the primary source of energy, it is safer to use on all skin types, including darker skin tones which are traditionally more difficult to treat due to the high rate of rebound with post inflammatory hypopigmentation.
Breaking down the new technology:
The PiQo4 is a game-changer for a few reasons. First off, it's super high energy (the most powerful picosecond laser on the market), which translates to faster results.
Clinical studies have shown that the optimal method for shattering pigment particles is to treat them with both Nano and Picosecond laser pulses. PiQo4 uses PICO & NANO, high energy, deep reach and 4 wavelengths to shatter pigment. This photoacoustic laser high-energy beam and deep reach is drawn to the pigment in order to disperse it. According to Lumenis, PiQo4's manufacturer, the laser can remove pigment in 40 percent less treatment time.
PiQo4's largest spot size is 15.5 millimeters. (For reference, that's almost four times bigger than anything that's currently available.) That makes the laser especially suited for larger pigmentation problems, such as a scar or birthmark.
What it treats?
Piqo4 is designed for the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles as well as hyperpigmentation on the skin. The unique 1064nm and 532nm wavelength allows Pico4 to promote your body’s natural healing mechanism, which works to rejuvenate the skin over time.
With Piqo4 laser treatment, your body becomes capable of restoring skin on its own, which allows it to continue improving aging imperfections after your treatment is complete. Although the production of collagen and elastin is a gradual process, you will notice a significant improvement in your skin in several weeks.
How many treatments do I need?
The treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Already after the first session, you may begin to notice improvement in skin texture and pigmentation.
Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have a visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months
following the treatment.
What is the treatment like?
During your session, you will hear the laser emits as loud, audible popping sound, then feel heat over the general area of
the skin. The treated area will feel as if it were sunburned; tight and dry.
In general, you can expect your skin to have a pinkish tone for 1-4 hours, and brown spots to appear lighter in appearance 1 week after the treatment.
First, you'll see an immediate improvement in skin texture. Second, the laser stimulates the body's natural healing process
which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. This process, called neocolloagenasis, will take place in the
