What do you think of when you hear of “Pico Laser?”

The name of Pico Laser might sound like something you have heard of before, because it is quite a popular treatment known in many countries such as South Korea, and Singapore is not excluded.

What is better than a treatment that can cure multiple skin concerns in one go? It’s so amazing isn’t it?

Pico Laser is a treatment that helps individuals who are suffering from pigmentations to acne scars, and more. Which is the reason why its popularity is increasing.

Here’s why Pico Laser is for you:

Free From Dark Spots Complexion

Pico Laser breaks down melanin, also known as pigments without harming surrounding tissue to achieve a clearer skin tone.

It minimizes the appearance of freckles, age and sun spots, and hyperpigmentation for a more flawless complexion.

Smoother Complexion With Reduce Acne Scars

Promoting collagen production and skin renewal is the reason why it reduces acne scars and improves skin texture especially like pitted and raised scars for a smoother complexion.

Less Visible Pores

Pico Laser minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores by stimulating collagen production, leading to tighter and more refined skin texture.

This helps in controlling oil production, reducing the likelihood of acne formation due to clogged pores.

Bright Skin 

This treatment enhances skin’s natural luminosity by evening out skin tone and reducing shadowing caused by wrinkles and fine lines.

Essential: Pico Laser Aftercare

The power of Pico Laser is amazing, but it is essential to take care of your skin after a Pico Laser session to ensure that the benefits of the procedure goes smoothly and for a speedy recovery. 

What If Pico Laser Aftercare Is Not Well Taken Care Of?

Do you know that neglecting proper aftercare after a Pico Laser treatment might affect the results?

Without the right amount of  sun protection, the treated skin is very sensitive to sunburn and hyperpigmentation which will reverse the benefits of the treatment and lead to uneven skin tone.

Insufficient hydration and the use of harsh skincare products can cause excessive dryness, irritation, and inflammation, delaying the healing process and increasing the risk of infection.

Furthermore, failing to follow the recommended aftercare regimen can also diminish the effectiveness of the treatment, resulting in less satisfactory results for conditions like dark spots, acne scars, and enlarged pores.

In severe cases, poor aftercare might even cause scarring or worsen the skin’s texture and appearance. Therefore, it’s always important to follow the post-treatment instructions to ensure a safe recovery and achieve the desired aesthetic results.
