PICO Genesis

PICO GenesisPICO Genesis is a 2 in 1 laser designed to clear and balance your skin to appear radiant and help you look your best. Non-invasive and suitable for all skin types, PICO Genesis is able to help with the following:

  • Sun/Age Spots
  • Pigmentation (melasma, hyperpigmentation, etc.)
  • Brighten Complexion
  • Even out your skin tone
  • Restore skin to a more youthful state.

PICO Genesis is able to be used on the face and body – almost anywhere you want a more even skin tone and rejuvenation. It is the only laser of it’s kind to use non-thermal, photo-mechanical laser energy that shatters the pigmented cells in energy and wavelengths unique to the PICO Genesis. It is said to be one of the most effective treatments for skin rejuvenation as well as pigmentation/melasma issues.

The average session lasts around 20 minutes from start to finish and it is recommended you have at least 2 treatments for best results. With significantly shorter and faster laser pulses, PICO Genesis has greatly reduced any risk of thermal damage to surrounding tissue – an adverse side effect commonly experienced with other lasers. It also has minimal to no downtime, although in some more aggressive cases there may be slight swelling or flaking.

Q. How Much Does PICO Genesis cost?

A. As with most laser treatments, cost varies from clinic to practitioner. It also depends on the amount of treatments you will require.

Q. Is PICO Genesis safe?

A. Yes! It’s significantly shorter and faster laser pulses are able to revitalise the skin without damaging surrounding tissues.

Q. Does PICO Genesis hurt?

A. It’s compared to having a tiny rubber band snap onto your skin. Numbing cream is generally not required, and it is said to be well-tolerated.
