Has the passage of time left small imperfections on your skin? Take back your youthful complexion with PicoWay® Resolve. This breakthrough skin rejuvenation treatment in Wexford, PA, and Pittsburgh, PA, uses ultra-short laser pulses that are measured in just picoseconds (trillionths of a second) to treat minor pigmentation concerns while promoting a brighter, more even skin tone.
How Does PicoWay® Resolve Work?
Discoloration and dark lesions on your skin occur due to the build-up of unwanted pigment particles. PicoWay® Resolve uses ultra-short picosecond energy pulses that shatter these particles into very tiny pieces. These small pieces are then easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. This skin rejuvenation treatment in Wexford, PA, and Pittsburgh, PA, will treat issues such as:
Café au lait spots
Nevus of Ota
This restorative treatment also stimulates the body’s production of collagen, which helps your skin to appear healthier and more youthful.
How Is PicoWay® Resolve Different From Other Treatments?
PicoWay® Resolve is a fractional laser treatment. That means that it only affects a targeted section of pigmented skin, which leaves healthy skin around the treated area and promotes faster healing.
A single PicoWay® Resolve treatment typically lasts for less than 20 minutes, and it requires no downtime afterward. That’s so quick that you can schedule an appointment on your lunch break!
Make Fewer Appointments
PicoWay® Resolve offers better results in fewer treatments than traditional laser skin rejuvenation procedures. The exact number of appointments that you need will be determined by the depth, size, location, and type of pigmentation that you plan to remove.
Effective for Most Skin Types
While other skin rejuvenation procedures in Wexford, PA, and across the Pittsburgh area may only work with certain skin tones and textures, PicoWay® Resolve offers outstanding results for various skin types.
What to Expect From Your PicoWay® Resolve Treatment in Wexford, PA
Your First Visit
Our laser skin rejuvenation experts will test your skin’s reaction to the PicoWay® laser. This test helps us determine the most effective treatment for you.
Your PicoWay® Resolve Procedure
You should experience minimal discomfort during your PicoWay® Resolve procedure. Some patients have described the laser as similar to small pinpricks. Most treatments only take about 20 minutes, though your appointment time will vary depending on your unique goals.
Immediately After Your Treatment
A cold compress will be gently applied to the treated area to soothe any lingering discomfort. You may also experience some temporary side effects, such as redness, darkening, or lightening of the skin near the treatment site. Any side effects should resolve fairly quickly.
In the Following Days
Our staff may recommend that you use a topical antibiotic ointment to ensure better healing. You should also be careful not to scrub the treated area or clean it with abrasive cleansers during these first few days. If the skin rejuvenation treatment is a success, then your lesions will darken and fall away, revealing the lovely complexion beneath.
