PicoWay® Laser Pigmentation Removal
I have been to many spas in the past and in comparison, La Vitalité Med Spa is truly my favourite in the city. I have done the PicoWay treatment two times to-date and the results are incredible, and my dark sun spots have faded. I wear a lot less make up now. The owner is professional, knowledgeable and very personable.
I personally tried the PicoWay pigmentation removal. I have always wanted to get rid of the spots on my cheeks that have bothered me for YEARS. They are very strict with hygiene and no wait time. All staff there are very nice and attentive to all my questions. The procedure went quite well. I thought it was gonna be painful, but it was totally above my expectation. I really enjoyed it. And now it has been two weeks, the result is showing more and more. So just bought a package of 4 and I will definitely recommend LV Med Spa to my friends and family.
I got PicoWay laser and the result is amazing! My pores are significantly smaller and my skin feels so smooth.
During the procedure, the laser produces a beam of high-energy light, which is then converted into therapeutic heat energy that penetrates deep into the skin.
This treatment targets dark spots on the skin because the laser is absorbed only by cells containing the excess melanin that causes discolouration.
Following treatment, the pigmented area typically darkens as melanin particles are broken down by the body and fade.
Picosecond lasers are further proven to reduce wrinkles by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.
Laser pigmentation removal is a quick, gentle and non-invasive treatment.
Luckily, the PicoWay® laser is more effective at removing unwanted pigmentation with less pain when compared to traditional lasers.
This is due to the fact that a laser delivers energy in ultra-short pulses spaced one picosecond, or one trillionth of a second, apart. The shorter pulse duration results in less pain relative to other laser systems.
The light pulses produced by the laser can feel similar to the flicking of a rubber elastic band and for most people is not too uncomfortable.
Laser pigmentation removal is commonly performed on the face, chest and back.
The length of one PicoWay® session depends on the size of the treatment area but can generally range from 15-20 minutes and are done over a series of treatment sessions spaced weeks apart. The team of professionals at La Vitalité Med Spa will recommend a treatment plan that works best for you.
If you are looking for a laser treatment that acts below the surface of the skin and offers low to no downtime, then the PicoWay® laser may be the right laser for you. PicoWay® laser treatment can remove unwanted skin pigmentation.
PicoWay® is a picosecond laser with high peak power and ultra-short pulse durations for a photoacoustic, rather than a photothermal effect that can overheat the skin. The majority of PicoWay patients report high patient satisfaction and low to no downtime.
PicoWay® has a higher peak power of 0.9GW compared to the peak power of 0.36GW of PicoSure, making the PicoWay® laser more effective in clearing pigmentation. The PicoWay® can deliver a shorter pulse duration of 300ps (picoseconds) to shatter skin pigmentation, whereas PicoSure operates at 750ps. As a photoacoustic laser, the PicoWay® fractures pigmented skin through vibration whereas PicoSure uses photothermal energy to heat the skin, which can lead to longer downtime.
Yes, treatment with the PicoWay® laser has low to no downtime. Most people can return to their activities of daily living shortly after treatment.
PicoWay® laser pigmentation removal treatment cost will vary depending on the size of treatment area and number of treatment sessions required. In general, it can be assumed that treating a larger area costs more than treating a smaller area.
