Candela Picoway Laser Treatment
PicoWay® is an advanced laser device for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation and even hard-to-treat melasma. Because it works by photoacoustic effects on the target and emits less heat than traditional lasers, PicoWay® provides a more comfortable treatment with fast results and virtually no downtime. It helps achieve a flawless and a porcelain-like appearance for all, even darker and Asian skin types.
Studies have shown that PicoWay lasers can deliver:
- Reduced acne scarring after just three treatments
- High rates of improvement in wrinkle severity
- Helps clear benign pigment spots
- Removal of multi-coloured tattoos
How does it work?
The PicoWay® system delivers high peak power and the shortest pulse durations for a non-thermal, photoacoustic effect that transforms skin from the inside out. With this remarkably innovative picosecond laser, you can:
Significantly improve acne scars and wrinkles with a series of quick, 15- to 20- minute treatments, with low to no downtime.
Address a range of benign pigmented lesions with flexibility in depth and spot size.
Treat a wide range of tattoos. Even difficult-to-treat blue and green tattoos.
Our consultation will cover all requirements needed pre and post treatment.
For tattoo removal we recommend:
- No sun exposure on the tattoo 2-4 weeks prior or post treatment
- The tattoo will look white-grey immediately after treatment and may last for a few days.
- A scab may form and drop off in 7-10 days.
- It is advisable to use an anti-bacterial ointment and dressing on the treated area for a few days after treatment.
- We recommend strict sun protection after the treatment to avoid unwanted pigmentary changes for 14 days.
