PICO Genesis

Improve Your Skin with Minimally-Invasive PICO Genesis

PICO Genesis is a revolutionary treatment option designed for those who want better-looking skin but don't want to go through painful procedures that can take years to show results. Using two different wavelengths and ultra-short bursts, the procedure actually disrupts and then remodels the upper dermis. This, in turn, leads to brighter skin, a more uniform complexion, and more.

What Is It?

PICO Genesis skin treatment procedures are a great way to reduce discoloration and improve the quality of your skin. We can treat a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Liver spots
  • Brown spots
  • Melasma
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • And other discolorations that affect the skin

Unlike other laser treatments that often use intense heat energy, PICO Genesis uses rapid-fire, intense bursts. This helps reduce pain, redness, and irritation and can provide results much faster without the heat damage that can come with those high-heat treatments.

Science shows that laser surgery can be used to treat many different skin issues, and numerous benefits can be experienced from PICO Genesis including:

  • Less redness or swelling after the procedure
  • Short sessions last only 20 minutes
  • Can be used on face or body
  • Fast recovery time after the procedure
  • Fewer treatment sessions are needed to receive results

How Does It Work?

The fast, high-intensity laser pulses used during PICO Genesis cover two different wavelengths, each of which delivers clearer, healthier skin. The lasers disrupt the dermal cells and allow for restructuring to occur. This generates fresh, healthy skin cells that look younger and more vibrant - and more uniform.

Here's what to expect.

  • We start each process with a consultation visit. This allows us to get to know you, your skin, and your overall goals. We'll also explain the process and let you know what to expect during it.
  • PICO Genesis sessions last about 20 minutes, with no recovery time afterwards. The red, puffy skin and soreness that is associated with other treatment options are not a problem here, giving you better results without side effects.
  • On average, you can expect to start seeing results after just one or two sessions. In some cases, up to 5 treatments may be needed to get maximum results.
  • There is no downtime after PICO Genesis, either. You may experience slight flaking, but this is mild and dissipates quickly.
  • Treatments are done roughly 2 weeks apart, leading to totally different looking skin quickly and easily.

Simply put, no other skin rejuvenation process can offer the same results that PICO Genesis can, with none of the painful side effects.
