PicoWay Resolve is an effective treatment that targets acne scarring, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and treats other skin imperfections such as unwanted freckles, birthmarks, melasma, and brown spots, on all skin types.
How does PicoWay Resolve work?
PicoWay Resolve uses picosecond technology in order to target skin imperfections and pigmented lesions. A picosecond is a super-fast trillionth of a second. Picoway Resolve emits energy that reaches below the surface of the skin in extremely short pulses (picoseconds). These pulses break apart unwanted dark spots into tiny particles.
In addition to effectively removing unwanted skin discoloration, by working from the inside out, PicoWay Resolve also creates tiny abrasions just below the skin’s surface. These micro-abrasions create a healing response mechanism in the body, which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two essential elements needed in order to combat those fine lines and wrinkles.
Because PicoWay Resolve works from the inside out, it does not wound the outer layer of the skin, meaning that patients enjoy no to very little downtime.
PicoWay Resolve is a safe and effective treatment that causes little to no discomfort and does not require a local anesthetic. The procedure itself takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Many patients see visible improvements after one treatment. That said, the amount of treatments required is dependent on what skin condition you are treating and what your skin goals and needs are. When you come in for your in person complimentary consultation, your provider will create an individualized treatment plan for your needs.
Are there any side effects?
Patients will experience mild redness in the area immediately following treatment. This redness can last anywhere from 8 to 36 hours. Some patients might also experience some mild swelling and itchiness, which should resolve itself soon after treatment and can also be treated with antihistamines or a topical hydrocortisone.
How much does it cost?
PicoWay Resolve costs $500 per treatment or $1,200 for 3 treatments for the full face. $250 per treatment and $600 for 3 treatments for the partial face.
