What is Pico Laser?

Pico Laser is a clinically proven treatment in Singapore to treat skin pigmentation, pore and scars. It is not a brand or a name of any specific laser device, but refers to a type of laser technology.

This novel laser technology fires laser energy in a very short pulse duration of picoseconds!

The word ‘Pico’ refers to Picoseconds, which is one trillionth of a second. It is 1/1000 of a nanosecond, which makes Pico Laser faster, more effective and superior to conventional nanosecond lasers.

How does Pico Laser Work?

Pico Laser works in picoseconds compared to the traditional Q-Switched Lasers, which fire in nanoseconds. This means the treatment creates an ultra-short pulse duration at your skin. There will be less heat on the skin because more short bursts of concentrated energy are fired per second, exposing your skin to less irritation and downtime. 

There will be a higher energy delivered because there are more shots fired in one second with more energy to shatter the pigmentation into the smallest possible fragments that can be easily removed by your body’s immune system.

What is the downtime for Pico Laser?

There might be some mild redness for a few hours after the treatment but it will go away eventually. Patients usually tolerate the treatment well because of the numbing cream. It is provided to alleviate any discomfort. Most patients will breeze through the procedure with little fuss. However, this is dependent on an individual’s tolerance for pain and discomfort.

How many sessions of Pico Laser do you need?

Most patients usually require 3-5 sessions at monthly intervals for optimal results however that is depending on the severity of their condition and individual skin healing abilities. Some of our patients see results in as little as 1-2 weeks.
