PICO Genesis: enlighten’s New Non-ablative, Fractional Skin Revitalization Procedure
The Cutera PICO Genesis is a Nd:YAG laser that stands out with its two different wavelengths (532 and 1064 nm) and pulse durations (2 ns and 750 ps). It’s a step up from the first-ever 755nm PicoSure laser introduced by Cutera.
Traditional laser treatments for skin issues like uneven skin tone or melasma often need up to 15 sessions and can give mixed results. PICO Genesis, on the other hand, uses the Enlighten SR laser’s power and versatility in a unique way. It precisely targets and breaks down the melanin causing dark spots and uneven skin tone. This process, called dermal disruption, leads to true skin revitalization.
Melanin gives our skin its color, but too much in one area can lead to brown spots and an uneven skin tone. Melasma, a type of skin darkening often related to hormonal changes such as pregnancy, can be made worse by heat and light from traditional lasers.
This is where PICO Genesis is a game-changer. It safely targets melanin with powerful, fast energy bursts, breaking it down without damaging the surrounding skin. It’s effective for treating various skin issues without affecting the skin surface or the deeper layers.
This laser is versatile and can be used for concerns on the face and body. It effectively treats a range of pigmentation issues, including:
Nevus of Ota
Nevus cell nevus
With this technology, we can address multiple skin concerns safely and effectively.
What you can expect
The time it takes to achieve your treatment goals depends on what your skin needs. While the treatment is happening, you’ll feel a bit of warmth because the laser sends energy under your skin. The good news is, there’s no recovery time needed after this treatment. You can go back to your regular day right after the treatment.
For the best results, we usually suggest doing 3 to 4 sessions. To keep your skin looking great, it’s a good idea to have ongoing treatments now and then. Our skin care experts are here to help you figure out the best treatment plan for what you want to achieve.
