Discovery PICO represents the second generation of picosecond lasers, that due its proprietary technology is the most innovative medical laser available at present in the market.
Using the most advanced laser technology for the treatment of pigmented lesions and aged skin, the energy from the laser will penetrate through the outer layer of skin, directly targeting the pigmented area, without affecting the surrounding tissue.
Pigmented lesions, freckles, brown spots, and age spots are some of the most common pigmented lesions that the PICO laser targets. Everyone has varying amounts of melanin (dark pigment in the skin). The high concentration of melanin could occur with age or due to unprotected exposure to UV rays (although some do get it at birth).
Within a few weeks, you will notice a change in the pigmented lesion. As the ink begins to fade, clear areas will begin to appear in the pigmented lesion. Each treatment will show a lightening of the area treated. On occasion, the normal skin surrounding the pigmented area will be slightly lighter, however, it will come back to normal after a few months.
For effective removal, it is necessary to undergo a series of treatments. Depending on the type of pigmented lesions and the degree of lesions, this procedure usually takes from 3 to 6 treatments. The melanin pigment continues to fade in between each treatment.
