What is Pico Laser?


Ability to treat epidermal (superficial), dermal (deeper) pigmentation, acne scars and inflammatory acne

The Discovery Pico Laser is an FDA approved way to treat skin pigmentation, enlarged pores and scars. It can also be used to effectively remove tattoos.

Pico Laser is referred to it due to it's laser technology. "Pico" refers to 'picosecond', i.e., 1/1000 of a nanosecond, or one trillionth of a second.

This technology enforces the laser to be fired with a very short pulse duration - in picoseconds, which means that it can shatter pigmentation into smaller fragments which are more easily removed by the body's immune system.


Is the procedure painful?


This is based on individual’s pain tolerance and location of the pigmented lesion(s). Most patients are able to tolerate the lasers sessions without much discomfort. The laser feels like tiny warm pricks on the skin.

Are there any side effects?

A small portion of patients can experience a pinkish flush or mild itchiness after the laser. This goes away within a few hours.

Are results permanent?

Most pigmentation, like tattoos, will not return after removal. However, due to sun exposure, aging and hormonal changes (mostly in women), new pigmentation can develop.

Is there any downtime?


You are able to resume daily activities immediately after the laser. One should avoid prolonged / intentional sun exposure for a week post-laser to avoid hyper-pigmentation. Creams are sometimes prescribed for this purpose as well. For certain patients, greying/browning/darkening of the existing pigmentation may be expected before it fades off. This is normal and one shouldn’t worry as it fades off in time.

How many sessions is required?

Depending on condition and the type of pigmentation, number of treatments can vary. A few factors influence the outcome of the treatment; nature of pigmentation, skin type, skin health, hormones, sun exposure, acne, etc. โ€‹ On average, about 4 – 6 treatments will be required for best results.


What is Long Pulse Laser?


Ability to treat wrinkles, fine lines and enlarged pores caused by photodamage, aging or other skin ailments

Long Pulsed Lasers have been found to be effective in treating acne by selectively targeting overactive sebaceous glands, which are responsible for producing excess oil that can clog pores and lead to acne.

By thermally destroying these glands, the laser treatment can reduce the production of oil and help prevent future breakouts.

Additionally, the laser treatment can also reduce inflammation and redness associated with acne, resulting in clearer, smoother skin in the long term.

Is the procedure painful?


There is often minimal discomfort during the treatment but it goes come with a built-in cooling system that alleviates the heating sensation.


Prior to the treatmnet, we also so apply numbing cream for you and the laser settings can be adjusted based on the client's discomfort or pain tolerance levels.

Is there downtime?

Some patients may experience mild redness after the treatment, but it does typically subside within a few hours of a day.


Do avoid sun exposure as much as possible especially in the days leading to and immediately after the laser treatment to help maximise the intended effects of the treatment.

How does it work?


The laser emitted has a wavelength of 1064nm lasers are used during treatment. The longer wavelength allows laser energy to be delivered deeper into the dermis as compared to other laser, stimulating rejuvenation from deep within the skin.


The laser is emitted in millisecond pulses, much longer than most lasers with nanosecond pulses. This allows the laser to build up more energy between pulses and deliver more energy per pulse.


During the treatment, laser energy is delivered into the dermis, specifically targeting skin fibroblast cells, stimulating them to increase collagen production.


This replaces the lost collagen caused by photodamage, aging or other factors. Amongst other effects, Long-pulsed laser treatment shrinks large pores, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tightening the skin for a general lifting effect.
