Benefits and Eligibility for Picosecond Laser Treatment
A picosecond laser emits short pulses of light, typically lasting only a few picoseconds (trillionths of a second).
These Pico lasers have shown to be effective in tattoo removal, treatment of pigmentation disorders, and skin rejuvenation.
The ultra-short pulses of light can break up the ink particles in tattoos or melanin pigment in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Picosecond lasers are used in the cosmetic sector for skin resurfacing and wrinkle reduction. The laser’s short pulses can stimulate collagen production in the skin, leading to improved skin texture and elasticity.
Does Picosecond laser help in hyperpigmentation?
In hyperpigmentation your skin reveals patches or dark spots, which looks ugly. Picosecond lasers work by delivering ultra-short pulses of light energy to the skin, which are absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hyperpigmented areas.
This causes the pigment to break up into smaller particles that can be more easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes.
Compared to traditional lasers, picosecond lasers are able to deliver energy more efficiently and with less damage to surrounding tissues.
This makes them an effective treatment option for hyperpigmentation, as they can target the pigment without causing significant damage to the surrounding skin.
