Words by Joey Kyla Villena
The body we’re in is the only one we’ll have forever, so it’s important to take care of it both inside and out. Undeniably though, there are many body-related issues that can arise when you live in a sunny and humid country like the Philippines; one of these issues is skin pigmentation. Addressing problems like such used to require surgical, manual, and topical procedures, but these need so much downtime and cause a lot of stress to the skin.
Gone are the days when these were our only options! The answer to our pigmentation problems is here, and it’s Luminisce’s Pico Suite.
Cynosure, the company that developed laser technology, has introduced Pico Technology, and you can experience it in any Luminisce clinic! Past lasers used nanotechnology, which fired laser beam energy at skin imperfections in nanoseconds (one billionth of a second). While these were effective, the process involved a lot of time for healing and even post-inflammatory burns and blisters. Not all of these lasers worked well with a wide range of skin tones, too. With Pico Technology, we experience a new wave of lasers!
As you can derive from its name, it executes its task within picoseconds (one trillionth of a second). This difference in pulse duration, as compared to nanotechnology, actually has a great effect. Simply put, it lessens the damage to skin tissue, reduces both downtime and the risk of complications, and makes it easier for the body to break down its particles—speeding up the visibility of results. What’s not to love about Pico Technology?!
The Luminisce Pico Suite contains three of the most advanced, world-renowned, and gold-standard devices. Learn more about each of these devices and see what will work best for you.
Pico Majesty has the shortest pulse duration among all Pico lasers in the aesthetics industry, and we already know why that’s a good thing! This device is mostly beneficial for stubborn pigments like tattoos, so you no longer have to worry about keeping up with the consequences of your tattoo decisions forever. Kidding!
It can work for different colored tattoos because it has four different wavelengths that can address various pigments. PicoMajesty shows results fast too! And while it’s recommended for tattoo removal, it can also treat other pigment-based skin conditions like acne and scars.
If versatility is what you’re looking for, then look no further than Pico Plus. Its level of treatment is highly customizable, and that’s what makes it stand out. Laser treatments can be very exciting, but don’t get overwhelmed—not every case needs the strongest and most aggressive treatment. Sometimes, gentler is better.
Pico Plus has four multiple wavelengths that make it possible to treat different types of pigmentation and scarring. It also has a pulse control and a toggle function that can both be adjusted by your dermatologist, depending on what your skin needs. So how can you get the most out of this device? Work with highly skilled dermatologists, just like those at Luminisce!
Pico Sure Pro
Pico Sure Pro is the latest upgraded machine to the Pico Sure System, and it’s easy to see why with all of its advanced features. Its wavelength is considered to be the sweet spot for treating most pigmentation problems. In fact, it’s so versatile and effective for different skin types that it’s the only picosecond device that’s FDA-cleared to treat melasma, Nevus of Ota, and Hori’s Nevus.
Pico Sure Pro goes beyond treating just pigments. It also reduces wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and pore size, thanks to its Platinum Focus™ lens that was specially created for skin revitalization. This unique fractionated lens helps naturally activate the body’s collagen and elastin production. Pico Sure Pro improves your overall skin tone and texture, revealing the brighter and more radiant complexion that you deserve.
