59% of Americans are uncomfortable with the state of their skin.
Many adults are dealing with scars from their problematic and acne-ridden teen skin, while others feel insecure over signs of aging. How we feel about our skin has a direct impact on our overall self-esteem, so why should we live with the skin we aren’t comfortable in?
That’s where the PicoWay Resolve laser comes in. The PicoWay Resolve laser is an innovative way to refresh and revitalize skin, adding a youthful and flawless glow.
So, what exactly is the PicoWay Resolve? Keep reading to learn more!
What Is the PicoWay Resolve Laser?
The PicoWay Resolve is an FDA-cleared laser that’s used to:
- minimize wrinkles
- get rid of acne scars
- reverse sun damage
It’s often confused with the PicoWay Zoom laser, which is responsible for removing tattoos from the skin. Originally, the PicoWay laser was only used as a way to remove tattoos. As we learned more about the PicoWay laser technology, the PicoWay Resolve laser was born.
PicoWay works by having different tools with different laser wavelengths. The condition that is being treated will determine which tools are best.
PicoWay is known for having the shortest pulse duration of any other competitor. The technology used for both PicoWay Resolve and PicoWay Zoom leaves patients with little or no downtime after the treatment before they see results.
The Science Behind PicoWay
You don’t have to be a scientist to understand why PicoWay is excellent for treating skin flaws.
PicoWay uses a picosecond laser with immense power. This immense power works with short laser pulses. In fact, PicoWay’s laser pulses are the shortest that you’ll find in a skin laser!
It’s important to have short pulses when treating the skin because the skin shouldn’t be heated when removing the imperfections. When heat is used to repair skin flaws, you face the risk of scarring or longer downtime after treatment. When you have a longer amount of downtime after treatment, you’re putting off essential activities like work, exercise, or chores to heal.
This no-heat approach is known as a “photoacoustic” effect. Using heat to treat skin imperfections is known as “photothermal” effects.
PicoWay focuses on the photoacoustic effect so you can get back to your daily life. You won’t need to take time off of work to heal, and you can even apply makeup to the skin after treatment!
How Does PicoWay Avoid Heating the Skin for Results?
PicoWay is able to fix imperfections by working under the skin.
The short pulses attack imperfections under the surface before they’ve had a chance to show on the outer layer. This leaves your top layer of skin perfectly intact.
When the skin is penetrated by the laser, little pockets that promote collagen and elastin growth form. This growth of collagen will remove old damage such as wrinkles and acne scars and replace it with healthy, fresh skin.
What the PicoWay Resolve Laser Treats
What does the PicoWay Resolve laser treat exactly?
Many of the noticeable imperfections on your skin can be treated with the PicoWay Resolve laser. Here’s what the laser will treat:
Acne is a bummer when you have it, but it’s even worse when the spot lingers!
Acne scars are something that almost half the population struggles with. Many people deal with hyperpigmentation which leaves the skin with scars after almost every breakout.
Acne scarring is caused by a lack of collagen in the skin. This is why the PicoWay Resolve laser is a great resource for removing acne scars. It penetrates the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen growth.
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take steps to reduce them!
Wrinkles aren’t always a result of aging, as some younger people have wrinkles from sun exposure. Wrinkles are another skin imperfection that is caused by a lack of collagen in the skin.
PicoWay Resolve is not an invasive procedure and it doesn’t require any needles to be used on the skin like many wrinkle treatments do. The outer layer of the skin doesn’t even need to be broken with the PicoWay Resolve laser!
Many of us have dark spots on our faces.
While they’re common, that doesn’t make them any less inconvenient if you want to go without makeup for a day. Examples of dark spots or skin discoloration are:
- Liver spots (skin discoloration from aging)
- Melasma (skin discoloration caused by hormone changes)
- Brown patches
- Discolored skin from sun exposure
If you feel like dark spots are taking over your facial skin, there’s no reason it has to stay that way. Excessive dark spots can impact your self-confidence and quality of life if left untreated. The PicoWay Resolve will reduce dark spots without damaging or disrupting your fragile outer layer of skin.
Possible PicoWay Resolve Side Effects
While the PicoWay Resolve laser is considered non-invasive and safe for skin, some people do experience negative side effects from the laser.
Potential side effects include:
- Skin redness
- Swelling of skin
- Purple spots
- Bleeding in pinpointed spots
While these side effects are minimal, patients can choose to use a topical ointment before the procedure if they’re worried about any pain associated with the treatment. The topical anesthetic will make the laser treatment a little more comfortable.
Any pain or side effects will also depend on the procedure or imperfection that needs correction. Also, your individual skin will play a part in how your body handles the treatment.
While there are possibilities for side effects, the majority of patients were able to get back to their daily activities without having to take time to heal.
