It's unfortunate but true: flawless skin is hard to maintain. Sooner or later, our facial skin will show the impacts of modern living: fast-paced living, daily stress, air pollution, sun exposure, take-out food with preservatives… Not before long, you look into the mirror one day to find some dark spots in the making. After moments of freaking out, you will panic-buy the best-rating anti-aging creams you can find. You will slather the creams on your pigmented lesions, hoping the uneven colored spots will magically get lighter. But let's face it: once they are here, hyperpigmentation is nigh impossible to remove by topical treatments alone. In the face of stubborn pigmentation, cosmetic treatments are the only solution. And amid all pigmentation removal treatments, pico laser treatments are often hailed as the most powerful and efficient. However, you shouldn't undergo a laser treatment only based on friends' or past patients' recommendations, as individuals react differently to pico laser energy. Instead, you should first understand if and how a pico laser treatment could bring you the most satisfactory results.

1

How does Laser Treatment Help with Hyperpigmentation?

While you may have heard of various pigmentation treatments, such as chemical peels, laser removal treatments are definitely the most efficient and effective.

Lasers can directly track and aim at the melanin accumulation within the skin tissues. The laser delivers energy waves, penetrating the skin layers, hitting, getting absorbed by, and heating the melanin, which break down the concentrated melanin and diffuse ink particles for metabolic removal. In the end, the laser waves effectively destroy skin discolorations, giving you a spotless face.

What is Pico Laser?

Pico laser is also known as picosecond energy. The longer a laser pulse duration is, the faster the laser beam travels. Not only are pico laser beams of high energy, they are also of ultra-short pulses: a picosecond is one trillionth of a second—that’s how fast each shot of picosecond energy usually travels! With such fast speed, a large amount of concentrated laser beams can hit the hyperpigmented lesion within a short period.

What are the Benefits of Pico Laser over Traditional Lasers?

Hard-Hitters of Melanin

Just like fast-travelling punches hit with more force, a large bunch of ultra-short bursts of energy can shatter accumulated melanin more quickly and effortlessly when compared to most lasers.

Low Risk of Skin Damage

Other lasers of longer pulse duration travel slower, meaning they take longer in the skin tissues before reaching the melanin location. The lingering heat can burn the surrounding skin tissues, resulting in wounds and, worse, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation—this is why some people get rebounding and darker spots post-treatments! Also, the slow travel speed also means the laser device has to emit a constant stream of laser shots into the skin, further enhancing the risk of post-treatment darkening skin!

In comparison, pico laser beams do not linger, greatly reducing the risk of burn and rebound pigmentation.

Reaching All Skin Layers

Pico laser waves can reach the innermost dermal tissues, effectively targeting pigmented lesions of all levels, i.e. freckles, acne scars, sun spots, age spots, melasma (chloasma), and nevus of ota.

Also, different laser wavelengths mean different levels of penetration—the shorter the wavelength, the more powerful it is at reaching deeper skin layers. Therefore, some advanced pico laser treatments incorporate multiple laser wavelengths to target all pigmentation issues better! For example, New Beauty’s PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment is the only pico laser treatment to employ four wavelengths (1064nm, 650nm, 585nm, and 532nm) to ensure pigmented spots of all depth, size, shade, and density can be eliminated completely.

One-Stop Solution to Multiple Skin Concerns

The benefits of pico laser exceed treating the regular freckles, acne scars, sun spots and more. For example, pico laser is powerful enough for tattoo removal.

Also, picosecond lasers can be used for skin rejuvenation. As the pico laser’s thermal energy permeates throughout the dermis, it can stimulate the dermal skin cells into new collagen production. More collagen helps smoothen and plump up the dermis, reducing wrinkles and indented scars and returning your face to its bright, silky, bouncy, flawless glory.

Should I Undergo a Pico Laser Treatment?

Although pico laser is very effective in treating pigmentations, you shouldn’t hurry to book a treatment without considering the following criteria. As a side note, shall your pigmented spots have unusual changes in size, shape, or colors, or if the lesions hurt, itch, or even bleed, you should immediately opt for a dermatologist or doctor appointment.

How Stubborn are My Hyperpigmentations?

Though pico laser waves are potent, they are more suited for stubborn hyperpigmentation. Other methods, i.e. exfoliation, better hydration, and prescription creams, should suffice for mild spots such as new and light acne scars and scape marks.

You may also want to consult a doctor or dermatologist on skin concerns such as pregnancy marks before deciding on a pico laser treatment. Sometimes, these marks are temporary due to hormonal fluctuations and non-permanent health conditions, which can be treated with patience and medications.

What’s my skin tone?

Traditional laser treatments work better on fairer skin because their pigmented spots stand out more, letting the laser devices track the accumulated melanin much easier. In contrast, those with darker skin have a large amount of melanin within their skin tissues in addition to hyperpigmentation, which can distract the laser into heating up the nearby skin, resulting in skin damage.

Pico laser technology is much more capable of treating hyperpigmentation on darker skin tones. However, before joining a particular pico laser treatment plan, you should still discuss it with your beautician, cosmetic consultant, or other professionals.

If you are tanned or of a race with darker skin, you should undergo a pico laser treatment with more than one wavelength so that, during the treatment, your beautician can adjust the wavelength according to your skin’s reaction. In general, pico laser beams of shorter wavelengths are better at bypassing the skin’s natural melanin to destroy pigmented spots.

Can I withstand pain?

Most pico laser waves do not hurt. Other laser treatments can be painful, as their lasers are slow in getting to the accumulated melanin site, thus burning the skin. The fast-travelling pico laser beams don’t linger inside the skin tissues, thus eliminating the pain.

That being said, you may experience some mild and completely common irritations, such as itchiness, soreness, and slight pin-like pain. For most patients, these sensations are minor and tolerable. However, those with sensitive skin may feel amplified discomfort.

In case you are worried about discomfort, you can discuss with your beautician on using numbing cream. You will have a pre-treatment patch test of the numbing cream to ensure no adverse skin reaction.

Will I need downtime?

If you live a busy and vibrant life, picosecond laser therapies are perfect for you! Typically, patients are required to take long downtimes after laser treatments, as the lasers make the treatment area red, itchy, sore, swollen, tender, and photosensitive.

Pico laser eliminates most, if not all, of these concerns. Pico laser works non-ablatively; it is also non-invasive, low in pain, and low in irritation. In addition, most picosecond waves treatments are certificated in safety. For example, New Beauty’s PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment is FDA-cleared, guaranteeing its safety. You can even get back to work, keep up with your normal activities, and wear makeup immediately post-treatment!

That being said, it is preferable to take some time for the skin to calm down post-treatment. You will not need to take days off, but you should avoid outdoor activities if possible. Shall you need to go under the sun, you should avoid direct sun exposure and wear SPF30+ sunscreens.

Before deciding on a picosecond treatment, you should compare different treatments’ needed downtimes in order to pick the one most suited for your schedule.

How many sessions do I need to take this treatment?

Pico laser treatments give speedy results as opposed to long-term methods such as exfoliation and topical creams. Depending on the severity of your pigmented spots, you will likely see significant results after 3 to 16 sessions.

For some people with packed schedules, needing fewer treatment sessions is very important. You should compare the estimated sessions needed for different picosecond treatments to reach desired results. Also, you can discuss with your beautician on minimizing the wait time between sessions—waiting too long between sessions allows melanin to regroup in your treatment areas, lessening the effect of your previous treatment session, and increasing the sessions needed for your desired result.

Picosecond laser treatments that use various wavelengths can simultaneously target all levels and types of pigmented spots, giving you the most efficient and satisfying results.

Do I Need Touch-Ups?

Depending on the skin type and the rate of melanin accumulation, some people never need to go through another course of treatment. However, most of us don’t have those skin types, and will need to maintain our spotless skin with another picosecond treatment course.

Picosecond treatment results last a long time for most patients. Many find some resurfacing spots after at least half a year. However, some improved treatments, such as New Beauty’s PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment, can give up to 5-years long flawless treatment results.

Compare the price and sustainability of various picosecond options for the most result-optimal and low-cost one.

Are there any risks?

While picosecond lasers are very safe, some risks are unavoidable. For example, your skin will go through some minor irritations, which, if not properly cared for, will lead to more severe skin issues. In addition, rebounding hyperpigmentation, while improbable, is not impossible. Therefore, you must choose carefully among various treatments and their laser wavelengths.

Consult your doctor before undergoing a pico treatment if you have one of the following skin conditions or skin issues: very dark skin (FitzPatrick type 5 to 6), extremely sensitive skin, photosensitive skin, lupus, bruises, or burn blisters on the treatment area, rosacea, recent laser treatment on treatment areas, long-term medications.

If you have any other skin or health-related concerns, you should mention them to your beautician or doctor before undergoing your pico laser skin treatment.
