What is the PICO Genesis?

The PICO Genesis is an innovative laser treatment that revitalizes the skin and eliminates pigmentation issues, such as age spots and melasma. It can even treat active acne and acne scars to smooth out your skin and give you the even complexion you’ve always wanted.

Traditional laser treatments rely on high-intensity energy to remove hyperpigmentation, leading to pain, redness, and significant downtime. Meanwhile, the PICO Genesis uses non-thermal laser therapy to destroy pigment without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. This means less pain, redness, and little to no downtime.

What can the PICO Genesis treat?

The PICO Genesis is effective at treating a broad range of skin concerns. However, it was designed to remove unwanted pigment from the skin. Allure Medical uses the PICO Genesis to treat the following conditions.

  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma (brown or gray patches)
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Acne
  • Acne scars

While the PICO Genesis is a popular non-ablative laser treatment for the face, it is also effective on the chest, hands, and other areas of the body.

How does the PICO Genesis work?

The PICO Genesis uses ultra-short laser pulses to directly target pigmented lesions in an extremely brief amount of time — approximately one billionth to one trillionth of a second. This quickly breaks up pigment without harming the skin around it.

In addition, the PICO Genesis heats up the deepest layers of the skin without disrupting the surface to stimulate collagen production. Over time, this new collagen tightens and firms your skin for a more youthful appearance.

How long does a PICO Genesis treatment take?

Each PICO Genesis session at Allure Medical only lasts about 20 minutes, making it the perfect lunch break treatment. While you may only need one to two treatments — spaced at least two weeks apart — it can take up to five to achieve the results you want.

Dermal melasma often takes longer to completely eliminate, but many clients notice visible changes in the tone and texture of their skin after a single session.

What makes the PICO Genesis unique is that there is no downtime after your treatments, so you can return to your normal activities after each visit to Allure Medical.
