At Carolinas Eye Center and Med Spa, we are excited to help our patients get their best skin with the PICO Genesis™ laser. This non-invasive treatment offers a quick and convenient solution to many of our most common skin concerns. To find out if PICO Genesis™ is right for you, contact our office in Charlotte, NC today.
What Is the PICO Genesis™ Laser?
This unique system utilizes non-thermal laser energy to remove skin imperfections and boost collagen production. What makes PICO Genesis™ preferable to other laser systems is that it doesn’t rely on extremely high temperatures to produce results. This eliminates the risk of damage to the surrounding tissues. Instead, the laser targets only the pigment in the areas you would like to treat.
What Can the PICO Genesis™ Laser Treat?
PICO Genesis™ can effectively treat the following skin conditions:
- Sun damage
- Pigmented lesions
- Age spots and brown spots
What Are the Benefits?
PICO Genesis™ comes with a wide variety of benefits, including:
- Quick treatment time
- No damage to surrounding tissues
- Little to no downtime
- Safe for nearly every skin type and tone
Because the PICO Genesis™ laser is so gentle, almost anyone is a good candidate for treatment. During your consultation, we can help you decide for sure if this approach is right for you.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Treatment with PICO Genesis™ is quick; each session typically takes just 15-20 minutes to complete. We also always keep our patients’ comfort in mind. Since the laser pulses with this system are only picoseconds long, most patients describe the sensation as nothing more than a quick rubber band snap on the skin. However, if you are concerned about any potential discomfort, we can discuss topical anesthetic options during your consultation.
The number of treatment sessions you will personally need will depend on factors such as the particular issues you are experiencing and their severity. Most patients, however, are able to enjoy significant results after just 1-2 treatment sessions.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients benefit from a dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of their skin after just one or two treatment sessions. You may also notice that your results continue to improve over the course of the next few months as collagen production reaches its peak.
If you want an effective alternative to invasive procedures and long recovery periods, PICO Genesis™ treatments provided by the experts at Carolinas Eye Center and Med Spa may be right for you. Contact our office in Charlotte today to schedule your consultation!
