Pigmentation

What is Pico Plus Laser?

The second generation of picosecond lasers and is the most innovative medical laser available in the market today. It addresses skin problems of various pigmented lesions, acne scars, birthmarks and unwanted tattoo, making the skin look brighter and smoother.

Tattoo Removal

THREE TRUE LASER WAVELENGTHS

  • The first picosecond laser to include a Ruby 694nm wavelength for removal of notoriously hard to treat light blue and green pigments.
  • True lasers rather than alternative dye converter options.
  • effectively extends the range of treatable colors.
  • How does it work?

    The Pico Laser Plus machine works in ultrashort picosecond pulses which is 100x shorter compared to a Q-Switched Laser, is able to fragment the pigments into thin “dust”.

    The Photoaccoustic effect of Discovery Pico fragments the tattoo’s ink in very small particles, which subsequently will be eliminated by the body’s immune system.

    Discovery PICO Plus has triple wavelengths at 532 nm, 694nm and 1064 nm, it can produce pico as well as nano-second pulses, targeting different coloured inks effectively. Discovery PICO Plus also includes a 694 nm Ruby laser, which just means even notoriously stubborn tattoo ink colours can be safely treated.

  • How long is the treatment?

    The entire treatment will take approximately 10 minutes.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    Based on individual’s pain tolerance and location of the pigmented lesion, most people are able to tolerate the lasers sessions without much discomfort. Patients will feel the pulses as quick tingling sensations, like very tiny rubber bands snapped against the skin. Cold air or numbing cream will be provided if necessary.

  • How many treatments are required?

    Depending on the patient condition, the number of treatments can range from 4 – 8 sessions.

  • What are the common side effects?

    Depending on the settings, patient may experience slight redness which will go away within a few hours. For certain patients, some greying/browning/darkening of the existing pigmentation may be expected before it fades off.  

  • Is there any downtime?

    The face may look flushed after the laser treatment for a few hours. You may resume normal activities post treatment, but it is advisable to minimize sun exposure for a week and apply sunblock daily on the treated area. As for Tattoo removal, the treated area will appear slightly swollen and it will go away in a few days.

  • What can you expect from the treatment?

    • Lighten and fade pigmentation
    • Acne marks clearance
    • Brighter and tighter skin due to collagen stimulation
    • Reduction in fine lines
    • Faster and more effective removal of tattoos
  • Discovery Pico vs other Picosecond lasers in the market

    There are 3 main Picosecond lasers available in Singapore. The discovery Pico, PicoSure, and PicoWay.

    Some clinics may offer other lasers as a “Pico Laser: – an example being the FotonaStarwalker. While they may work to varying extends, they are not true picosecond lasers, and are unable to generate the speed as a genuine pico laser.

    The Discovery Pico Plus, being a second-generation pico laser, generates the highest peak power is the most powerful triple wavelength pico laser in the world. This ensures that results are faster, and more effective with lesser sessions.

  • What is Pro Yellow Laser?

    Pro Yellow Laser treats melasma, telangiectasia, rosacea, post acne erythema, acne, spider nevus, cherry angioma, venous lake, port wine stains or red spider veins. It allows fast, effective and safe treatments and reduces side effects. Less fluence is needed to achieve the expected results and, thanks to the lower melanin absorption (compared to 532 nm), it is also suitable for the treatment of darker skin types.

  • How does it work?

    Port-wine stains, small strawberry marks, dilated capillaries and couperose skin: there is a wide range of conditions in which the structure of blood vessels changes, and many people suffer from them. QuadroStar Pro Yellow with 577 nm provide the ideal wavelengths for treatment of vascular lesions. The scanner with integrated skin cooling also allows faster treatment of areas of erythema in a procedure that reduces side effects and shortens the regeneration phase. The green wavelength is absorbed to a large extent by haemoglobin, the target structure for vascular treatments. The yellow wavelength is more selective and lies at the maximum absorption limit. The system allows fast, effective and safe treatments with few side effects. Less fluence is required for the same results and thanks to the lower level of melanin absorption in comparison to 532 nm, darker skin types can be treated with less damage.

  • How long is the treatment?

    The entire treatment will take approximately 10mins.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    You will feel little, superficial pricks, which however are not painful, but indicate the efficacy of the therapy.

  • How many treatments are required?

    Results can be seen in 1 session especially for vascular conditions and skin rejuvenation. Pigmentation might require more than 1 treatment.

  • Is there any downtime?

    Patients may experience some redness which usually goes away in 2-4 hours. Final treatment results should be evident within 10-14 days after treatment for vascular lesions and within 2-3 weeks after treatment for pigmented lesions. You may require multiple treatments to achieve desired results.

  • What can you expect from the treatment?

    What can you expect from the treatment?

    • Smoother, clearer and brighter skin
    • Greater comfort
    • Shorter healing period
    • Reduced risk of side effects
    • Ability to safely treat darker skin types
