Picosecond technology has become a widely used tool in the treatment of pigmented skin lesions and tattoo removal. The Pico care, a laser developed by picosecond technology, can now be used to treat various scars, skin revitalizion and nail disorders.
This editorial will tell you about my experiences with Pico care. It will also explain why I choose it.
Picoseconds lasers offer excellent results and speedy outcomes. PicoSure use one-half- to one-third as much energy as q-switched ones. The incidence of side effects, such as scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (pih), is also lower than in q switch lasers.
This is most apparent when it comes time to remove tattoos or treat pigmented disorders such as age 皮秒激光, freckles and lentiginous. Patients with pigmented spots are satisfied after treatment with picocare. This gentle procedure is less time-consuming and offers greater comfort. Picocare can be used safely on darker skin types because of its low fluence.
Depending on the location, you can choose between the 532 and 1064 wavelengths (532 nm is for epidermal pigments; 1064 for dermal). To achieve maximum results in removing blemishes/brightening dull complexions, I use both wavelengths during one session.
Picocare also treats pih resulting in surgery, laser treatments or other causes. Patients who have suffered from pih due to post-liposuction via apopliteal fossa are frequent visitors to my clinic.
Pico toning can be done in three to five passes. It causes a slight increase to energy of 1.0 – 1.2 j/cm2. Patients are pleased with the results and little pain.
Picosecond-laser has made tattoo removal a priority. Picocare uses 532 nm (and 1064 nm) wavelengths to treat a variety of tattoo colors. I have found that using the picocare to get rid of tattoos is easier, less painful, and results are faster.
Interestingly, the picocare 595 nm dye hand piece can also treat erythemato-telangiectatic rosacea and acne vulgaris. Although the exact mechanism is not yet known, it appears the wavelength’s characteristics can effectively be applied to the treatment of vascular and acne lesions.
Furthermore, the fractional laser hand piece emits a unique light that produces laser-induced optical decay (liob). Liob causes damage by plasma generation and the creation of cavitation. It does not affect the stratum corneum and basal membrane. This causes collagen remodeling. It is used in scar treatment and skin rejuvenation.
One example of this is acne scarring. It is commonly treated using hexa mala. Patients suffering from depression experienced significant improvement after only one treatment with hexa MLA. It was also remarkable in its ability to treat hard-to manage rolling scars as well as icepick scars.
To maximize the therapeutic effects, I deliver regenerating components, such as EGF, fgf, Tranexamic acid, Polydeoxyribonucleotide and y-polyglutamic acid, to the treatment site where microchannel have been created by the hexa MLA procedure.
The most commonly used procedure with hexa MLA involves skin rejuvenation. The cost and inconvenience of conventional fractional lasers like carbon dioxide and eryag are lower, but the results can still be impressive.
