Discover the transformative power of PICO Genesis, a leading skin treatment at The Skin Center. Renowned for its effectiveness and innovation, PICO Genesis is a top choice for those seeking a flawless complexion. Whether you’re looking to reverse the signs of sun damage or old acne scars, PICO Genesis offers a safe and effective solution tailored to your skin’s unique needs.

Procedures and Effectiveness

PICO Genesis represents a breakthrough in sun/age spot and acne scar treatments, using laser technology to target the skin’s imperfections without the downtime associated with traditional lasers. The process begins with a personalized consultation, and then a separate appointment for the procedure. Unlike traditional laser treatments that often require an extensive recovery period, PICO Genesis utilizes ultra-short laser pulses that penetrate the skin to target pigment issues, sun damage, and aging signs at their source without harming the surrounding tissue. This precise approach not only ensures a safer treatment with fewer side effects but also promotes a faster healing process. The result? A visibly brighter, more even skin tone, reduced appearance of age spots and sun spots, and an overall rejuvenation that leaves skin looking younger and more radiant. Patients can expect to see a noticeable improvement in skin clarity and elasticity, which contributes to a smoother, more youthful complexion. By stimulating natural collagen production, PICO Genesis effectively addresses the underlying causes of aging, offering results that enhance both the beauty and health of your skin.

Patient Instructions for PICO Genesis Treatment

Ensuring you’re well-prepared before and properly cared for after your PICO Genesis treatment is key to maximizing its benefits and enjoying a smooth recovery.

Preparing for Your Treatment

Preparing your skin for the PICO Genesis treatment is an important step to ensure the best possible outcomes. Follow these guidelines before your appointment:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Minimize sun exposure to the treatment area for at least 2 weeks prior. Sunburned or tanned skin can affect the treatment’s effectiveness and increase the risk of side effects.
  • Skin Care Products: Discontinue the use of retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and any exfoliating products 1 week before treatment to reduce skin sensitivity.
  • Stay Hydrated: Increase your water intake in the days leading up to your treatment to ensure your skin is well-hydrated.
    Inform Your Specialist: Provide a complete list of any medications and supplements you are taking, as some may need to be paused before the treatment.

  • Use Gentle Skin Care Products: Stick to gentle, non-irritating skincare products and avoid makeup for the first 24 hours post-treatment.
  • Limit Physical Activity: Refrain from strenuous exercise and activities that cause excessive sweating for 24-48 hours to prevent irritation.
