Nearly everyone has a few pigmented lesions. While most of these skin growths are completely harmless, many people choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. If you’re looking for an effective, minimally invasive way to get rid of your pigmented lesions, you may want to consider the benefits of the PicoWay® laser for pigmented lesions.
Longevity Regenerative Institute is proud to offer this state-of-the-art method of pigmented lesion removal to our patients. Contact our north or south Oklahoma City locations today to schedule a consultation appointment, and take the first step towards clear, radiant skin!
What is the PicoWay® Laser?
By delivering the shortest laser pulse available on the market today, the PicoWay® laser addresses pigmented lesions quickly and effectively without the downsides of extensive downtime and discomfort that many other laser alternatives feature. One IRB-approved clinical study of the PicoWay® laser found that 96% of lesions had good to complete clearance after treatment and 86% of patients were satisfied with their results. This laser works great on patients of all skin types and is the only procedure of its kind able to address melasma.
How does it Correct Pigmented Lesions?
During treatment, the PicoWay® laser applicator is directed at the pigmented lesion the patient would like to correct. Once the treatment area has been adequately prepped, a member of our medical staff will deliver short bursts of powerful laser energy to the treatment site. This laser energy passes through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by the structures that cause pigmented lesions to form. Each burst has a combined photo-acoustic and heating effect on these structures, slowly causing them to break up and disband. As these structures are removed from the body, pigmented lesions gradually begin to fade until they disappear altogether.
Which Pigmented Lesions Can it Address?
- Age spots
- Nevus of Ota
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each PicoWay® laser for pigmented lesions procedure takes no longer than 20 minutes to complete. Because laser energy is delivered to pigmented lesions in short, strong pulses, patients are able to experience the dramatic results associated with traditional laser treatments without the usual extensive downtime or discomfort.
We recommend that patients undergo multiple PicoWay® laser treatment sessions to achieve clear, corrected skin. While the number of treatments needed can vary depending on the location, depth, size, or type of pigment use, each of these sessions must be performed between eight and twelve weeks apart.
