PICO Genesis miracle facial is a true game changer when it comes to treating pigmentation concerns.
PICO Genesis can even treat difficult pigmentation problems like melasma that most other lasers are not suitable for. The treatment is also effective at providing noticeable improvements in skin tone and texture.
To prepare the skin, numbing cream is applied on to avoid any discomfort. Once the skin was numb, I was taken to my aesthetician Rebecca Treston’s room – the only expert qualified to carry out this treatment – to lay back on a chair and relax.
Picosecond pulses went along my face in various directions, to not only remove pigmentation but also rejuvenate deep layers of the skin without causing damage to the tissue. As the ultra-short energy pulses are felt ever-so-slightly on the skin – Rebecca tells me the procedure is great for anyone who has age spots, melasma, freckles, deep acne marks, hyperpigmentation and sun damage. The laser also helps build collagen.
As I had some sun damage across my cheekbones this area was treated with more intense pulses which after left my skin a little bit red. The next morning this was gone with some little dark patches that faded in a few days.
The treatment works on the skins upper dermis to give you radiance and a glowing complexion. To cool the skin down, a thick rubber-like mask is applied on for 10-15 minutes.
The actual results were noticeable after 5 days – my skin looked and felt amazing. My skintone was even and all my sun damage was no longer visible.
