Your go-to treatment for Pigmentation, Acne Scars, Enlarged Pores and Skin Rejuvenation! Pico Laser is a HSA approved non-ablative pigment laser treatment for pigmentation removal in Singapore.
A generation of laser technology fires at an ultra short pulse duration – Picoseconds! "Pico" in Pico Laser refers to picoseconds = one trillionth of a second!
Pico Laser is a non-ablative pigment laser that fires with an ultra-short pulse duration at your skin. It is commonly used to remove pigmentation such as Melasma, Sun Spots, Age Spots, Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentations, Solar Lentigo, Hori’s Nevus and also tattoos.
PICO Laser also help to:
By firing laser beams at picoseconds, this creates:
Lesser photo-thermal effect (Less heat on skin) as more short bursts of concentrated energy is fired in each second, it exposes your skin to lesser irritation and downtime.
Higher photo-acoustic effect (More energy delivered) this allow pigments to shatter into the smallest possible fragments that are easily removed by your body.
PICO Laser targets pigmentation. Pigments under your skin absorb the laser energy and shatter into tiny fragments which will be naturally removed by your body.
PICO Laser uses MicroLens Array (MLA) that concentrate laser to produce micro injuries under your skin. This triggers skin to heal and stimulates collagen and elastin in skin without damaging upper skin layer, resulting in minimal downtime and side effects.
Stimulating collagen helps to improve skin appearance, achieving a younger looking skin.
The difference is in pulse duration which is the time a laser shot stays on skin.
Q-Switched Laser fires at nanoseconds, while Pico Laser fires at picoseconds which is x100 shorter!
There is little evidence to show which Pico Laser machine is better than another – differences lies in the technical detail which aims to treat the same concerns.
Trust in the doctor’s expertise, proper and holistic care of the diagnosed condition is the most important thing to look out for.

Pico Laser treatment is well-tolerated by patients as numbing cream is provided to minimise any discomfort. Most patients breeze through the treatment with little concern. However, this is subject to individual.
Skin may look flushed after treatment but will subside within 24-48 hours. You may resume normal activities post treatment, but it is advisable to:
A thorough assessment and diagnosis of your condition is required for our MOH Certified doctors to advise on the number of laser sessions required.
For most pigmentation issues, 3-5 sessions are usually needed for complete removal.
For acne and enlarged pore issues, number sessions depends on individuals and severity of condition.
Most pigmentation will not return after removal.
However, new pigementation can develop due to sun exposure, ageing and hormonal changes.
To prevent new pigmentation from forming, good daily skincare habits and regular maintenance treatments is recommended to ensure long-lasting results.
