If you’ve been on this Earth for more than a handful of years, you have undoubtedly gathered a few spots or blemishes over the years that just won’t seem to go away on their own. This could be scars from acne that continually haunt you or a remnant from the time you got over-eager and popped a pimple too soon and too aggressively. Maybe it’s just simple wrinkling from the passage of time, whatever the case may be, The Discovery Pico Laser can treat those issues and many more with relative ease!
Discovery Pico Laser Series
Manufactured by an Italian company—Quanta System, that specializes in laser technology for surgery and aesthetic procedures, the Discovery Pico Laser boasts an impressive three true laser wavelengths. While there are many lasers capable of doing cosmetic work, in our experience, the Pico Laser does it that much better and with minimal discomfort. At The Herschthal Practice, we make it a point to always use cutting edge technology for the best results for our clients!
Pico Laser Treatment for Sun Spots or Melasma
Our practice is located in sunny Boca Raton, Florida! Going to the beach is a way of life in South Florida. No matter the season, you can find a busy beach on any day of the week down here because the weather almost always permits.
The side effect to this? Lots of sun exposure, of course!
Melasma and sun spots are the same thing, both worsened with sun exposure. They are fairly common and thankfully benign—meaning it’s not harmful, just a nuisance depending on who you ask. It most commonly appears on:
In other words, the face is the most common area in which melasma appears but it certainly is not limited to that area.
Interestingly enough, it would appear that the vast majority of people who get melasma are women: about 90% if you ask the American Academy of Dermatology. The AAD also states that under a qualified dermatologist’s care, the majority of people with melasma have a good outcome from treatment protocols. The Pico Laser treatment is also the gold standard procedure for improving melasma. The Pico Laser is also excellent at removing stubborn brown spots.
Pico Laser Treatment for Acne
For much of the same reasons as the melasma treatment, the Pico Laser is incredible at delivering results when it comes to getting rid of acne scars. The reason for this is that the laser is able to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and through building new collagen can improve those persistent acne scars. For the best results, we recommend at least 3 sessions that are 1 month apart.
Tattoo Removal Using Pico Laser Treatment
As with all choices in life that have very permanent consequences, there’s always a huge potential for regret. Tattoos are fairly well represented in that domain, it’s almost a cliché to hear a story about someone who got a tattoo they regretted. Things that may seem great in the moment may not hold the same currency with you in 5-10 years…or the next day for that matter. Thankfully, the choice is not so permanent in 2019.
The Pico Laser can effectively work at removing tattoos. Due to the fact that this laser has 3 wavelengths, it can treat tattoos of every color! Treatments should be spaced out by about 6-8 weeks per session, this allows the body time to cycle out the targeted pigment. It will take a minimal of 6 sessions to truly remove the tattoo.
