New Leading Treatment for Pigmentation and Skin Tone Issues
Many men and women in Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Sikeston, and surrounding areas of Missouri deal with dull, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and brown spots on their skin. These common cosmetic issues can be addressed at Heartland Plastic with different laser treatment options.
Laser treatments play a significant role in replenishing and rejuvenating your complexion by targeting the damaged areas of your skin. These flaws in the skin can be corrected by advanced aesthetic laser treatments, such as the Pico Genesis® system, offered at Heartland Plastic. The Pico Genesis® laser is a revolutionary system that uses concentrated laser light and the principles of pico and nanotechnology in order to break down the pigments in the skin, making it a viable option for laser tattoo removal.
Many cosmetic laser systems require 7-10 treatment sessions to get the desired pigmentation improvement. The Pico Genesis® laser introduces a new approach to harvesting results after 3 treatments, without any downtime and with little to no discomfort to surrounding skin. The treatments are ideal for the face, hands, décolleté, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of excess pigmentation. The Pico Laser breaks up pigment to treat melasma, age/sun spots, acne scars, brown spots, skin discoloration, uneven skin tone, and dull complexion. In addition to providing solutions to all these problems, laser tattoo removal, laser vein therapy, and laser hair removal are also offered at Heartland Plastic.
The advantages of the picosecond laser treatment make it a top choice for skin treatments. The benefits of this laser system are:
- No downtime
- Safe and effective
- Short treatment time
- No damage to the surrounding tissue
- Minimal discomfort during and after treatment
- Promote the body’s natural healing processes
- Reduced acne scarring and pigmented lesions
Short spurts of non-thermal laser energy are provided to make this treatment safe and effective for all types and tones of skin, unlike other laser treatments. The feel of picosecond lasers can be compared to the static electricity from a latex balloon roving through the skin. The skin rejuvenation treatments are performed by Dr. Humphrey or one of his specially trained nurses and only take a few minutes to complete.
The skin may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours following treatment. You can expect to return to normal activities immediately following treatment. The treated area should be kept out of the sun, and protected with daily sunscreen application, and it is recommended to be followed with a medical-grade skin care regimen to prevent pigmentation from returning. A series of 3 treatments is recommended but you may see results in as 1-2 treatments– far fewer treatments than other laser therapy procedures.Back to Blog home
