PicoWay® Skin Toning & Rejuvenation

Treatment Description

PicoWay® is an ultra-fast, high-powered laser that operates in picoseconds (a trillionth of a second) to address a variety of skin issues including texture, dullness, wrinkles and fine lines. It uses short laser pulses to boost natural collagen production for younger-looking skin and brighter, more even skin tone.

During treatment, a central beam of PicoWay® laser is split into 100 identical beamlets spaced evenly apart to reach below the skin’s surface. Tiny open spaces are created under the skin that are then filled in over time with the growth of new collagen and elastin.

The PicoWay® laser literally works from the inside out. The treatment does not cause the outer layers of the skin to break, so patients enjoy low to no downtime after treatment.

La Vitalité Med Spa is proud to be a leading provider of PicoWay® in Toronto.

Introducing PicoWay®

All PicoWay® laser treatments use a picosecond laser with high power and ultra-short pulses. A picosecond is a trillionth of a second! The ultra-short pulses with the PicoWay® laser 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.

Because the PicoWay® laser uses ultra-short laser pulses, the result is a laser that has low to no downtime after treatment. Users can resume normal activities and even apply makeup over acne scarred or wrinkle treated skin within a day of treatment.

The PicoWay® laser reaches under the skin for its impact, leaving the outer layer of the skin intact. Targets can be 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.

Diminish Wrinkles

Millions of people each year seek treatment for their wrinkles. Wrinkles can be caused by a loss of collagen in the skin.

The PicoWay Resolve applicator on the PicoWay system is a non-invasive, needle free treatment option for wrinkles. Resolve uses ultra-short laser pulses to reach under the skin, without breaking the outer layer of the skin. Picosecond lasers are proven to stimulate collagen and elastin.

Treat Acne Scars

Did you know that nearly 40% of those with acne have some degree of scarring? Many acne scars result from a loss of collagen in the skin.

PicoWay Resolve treatment uses an ultra-short, picosecond laser that reaches below the surface of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and elastin, without breaking the outermost layer of the skin.

In clinical studies, 94% of treated areas improved and patients were highly satisfied with results.

Brighten Skin Tone

Skin discoloration is common, yet treatable. Dark spots, or benign pigmented lesions, appear in many people on different areas of the skin.

Some spots are related to excessive sun exposure. Others can be caused by hormone changes, often impacting women following pregnancy.

Many of these skin discolorations can be distressing and affect quality of life.

Client Testimonials


PicoWay® Resolve is a treatment on the PicoWay® laser system that uses a laser handpiece to split the full beam into tiny microbeams. This allows treatment of conditions like acne scars, wrinkles and benign pigmented lesions. PicoWay® Resolve acts by creating tiny open spaces, called vacuoles, under the skin where new collagen and elastin are built and can transform the skin over time.

PicoWay® treatments are typically brief (15-20 minutes) and are done over a series of treatment sessions spaced weeks apart. We will recommend a treatment plan that works best for you.

With PicoWay® Resolve treatment for laser skin rejuvenation, most patients reported low levels of pain during treatment for wrinkles and mild to no discomfort for acne scar or dark spot treatment.

Depending on the condition treated, you may be able to see initial improvement as early as after the first treatment. Typically, multiple treatment sessions are needed.

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® 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® laser skin rejuvenation 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.
