Why would people pay to have lasers shot on their face?

 “Ouch! I would never ever want to get something so painful done on my fa-” Okay, okay, hold up, we get it. “I bet it hurts”, “I am sure it is expensive too. It is only made for rich people or celebrities.” These are not uncommon things that can cross people’s mind when they think about getting laser done on their face. Do you have similar thoughts too? Well, we made this article catered to you so you can really know if getting Pico Laser done on your face is a smart move.

Or if it is a dumb and expensive move. You are free to decide at the end of this article.

First off, let’s start with this.

Let’s explain the why

The short and sweet answer will be for better skin. The long and a more sentimental answer will be self confidence, self love, self care, and everything in between that could arise from having better skin?

“To find back the confidence I had before giving birth to my two precious kids.  I lost my once glowing and youthful, bouncy skin in the midst of it all and I want to gain it back.” is what some will say.  For others it can feel like they are finally becoming the person they were meant to be.

For some, it is a maintenance thing that keeps them together- it is like equivalent to a facial or manicure session. To some, it holds more importance but we are sticking with it for better skin and nothing too deep or emotional today.

So what’s this laser thing we are talking about?

There are actually not one but many laser treatments in the field. Yes, yes, people actually can get not one but many different types of lasers shot on themselves. We know right.

Be it on their face for better, glowing, firmer skin or their body- such as for hair removal in different areas or tattoos they may have ‘regratted’ from years ago.

While there are a few lasers like Pico Laser, Fractional CO2 Laser, Carbon Peel laser etc, we will be focusing on one in particular which is Pico Laser.

Pico Laser Singapore

What is Pico Laser?

In Singapore, one of the most popular laser treatments for skin rejuvenation is the Pico Laser.

“Wow, you look different. Did you do anything to your face?” It is perfect for the mysterious glow and skin improvement everyone noticed but can’t seem to put a finger on what is done. Only because this treatment has minimal to no downtime.

You can choose to be honest or you can go another route with “No, I also don’t know. It just happens.” either way both works and we don’t judge.

The Pico Laser is a non-invasive treatment that requires minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those with busy lifestyles, which is technically every Singaporean if we are being honest.

How does Pico Laser works?

One of the most innovative features of Pico Laser is its use of MicroLens Array (MLA) technology. MLA is a special type of lens that is used to focus the laser energy onto the skin. This allows the laser to deliver energy more precisely, which can improve the effectiveness of the treatment.

MLA also allows the laser to target multiple layers of the skin simultaneously. This helps to trigger the natural skin healing process and collagen production with minimal downtime and side effects. This means that Pico Laser can be used to treat a wide range of skin issues, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Is Pico Laser as painful as it sounds?

Many people may assume that getting laser treatment on their skin is a painful process. However, Pico Laser is a relatively painless procedure.

The treatment uses ultra-short pulses of laser energy to stimulate collagen production, which leads to smoother and more youthful-looking skin. Patients will usually be assisted to apply numbing cream before the treatment to ensure the whole process is comfortable. During the treatment, you may feel a slight warming or tingling sensation on your skin. Some people describe it as feeling like tiny pinpricks or a rubber band snapping against their skin. However, the discomfort is generally mild, and most people find it very tolerable.

There is typically little to no downtime following the procedure. Overall, Pico Laser is a safe and effective way to achieve better skin without the pain and inconvenience often associated with more invasive treatments.

What skin condition works for Pico Laser? Are you a good fit for Pico Laser?

Pico Laser is a highly effective laser treatment that targets a wide range of skin concerns. The treatment works by using ultra-short pulses of laser energy to penetrate the skin’s surface and stimulate collagen production, which leads to a smoother and more youthful appearance. The following are the skin concerns that Pico Laser can help with:
