What is Pico Laser?
Skin pigmentation is a common problem, especially on the face. This is also a frequent occurrence as people age. The good thing is that there’s an easy, effective, and painless solution for this.
Pico Laser toning uses laser technology to reduce and solve uneven skin and discoloration problems. With its effectiveness and ease of procedure, it is understandable that this treatment is now gaining more popularity in Asia, particularly in Korea.
Pico Laser toning promises to smoothen out our skin in a non-invasive and non-surgical way. This is used to treat the skin and its imperfections, not just on the face but on other parts of the body as well. This is guaranteed to be a safe procedure for everyone.
Theme Dermatology offers the Pico Laser toning procedure for patients who have concerns with uneven skin and other skin problems. Learn more about this and how to book your appointment with us as you read this article.
How does Pico Laser work?
Pico Laser continues to amaze the beauty industry and its patients with its unique features. First, it uses the picosecond method, which is faster compared to other laser treatments. With this kind of speed, the Pico Laser toning treatment can be considered one of the most gentle laser treatments available.
Pico Laser also exists for a specific reason: to solve skin pigmentation problems. This method also uses high energy, not heat, while treating unwanted discolorations and helping the skin produce collagen and elastin at the same time. With the help of non-ablative lasers, Pico Laser toning will be able to heat the targeted tissue, but the said tissue won’t be destroyed. Rather, it will help trigger the body to have a natural response, thus, resulting in the production of more collagen and elastin the patient’s skin needs.
Why choose Pico Laser?

- Excessive skin pigmentation

Preparation and procedure
All of the treatments, procedures, and other services we offer here at Theme Dermatology are required to conduct proper consultation with our top experts. Our patients need to see our doctors to have an assessment and match their concerns with their goals for wanting the procedure they want to avail.
With the Pico Laser toning treatment, it is important that the patient qualifies for what this treatment needs and promises. This is where the proper consultation comes in. Our world-class doctors will have a thorough assessment of the patient, where they will talk about how the procedure happens, what are the most potential results, what the side effects are, and how this will connect with the patient’s goals. We also make sure that our patient’s safety is always our top priority for every service we offer, and with proper consultation, our doctors can create the right treatment plan needed by the patient.
Most of the time, anesthesia is not needed for the Pico Laser toning treatment. However, if the patient wants or requests it, we’re ready to provide this to him or her. We can assure you that this procedure is mostly pain-free but you may expect a little discomfort during the procedure.
The procedure starts with the doctor cleaning the area to be treated and preparing it for the treatment. Our doctors can also put a numbing cream in the treatment area to add another layer of protection against pain or discomfort, just in case some patients need it. After this, our doctors will now proceed to use the laser in the target treatment area of your skin.
The whole Pico Laser toning treatment is a very safe and quick procedure. The whole session might only take less than an hour per session. There might be some heat or some tingling sensation to be felt, but overall, the whole procedure is little to pain-free and non-invasive.
Potential risks and side effects
While Pico Laser is safe, there are some minor risks and side effects a patient should know about. Here are some of the possible side effects and risks:
- Some discomfort during the procedure
- Some redness
- Some swelling
- Some scabbing
- A risk of having a flushed appearance after the treatment due to the redness
- Little chance of skin burning because of the heat from the laser
Recovery and aftercare
The patient can go back to his or her normal life immediately after the procedure, especially since it’s a fast treatment. However, there are some minor precautions to follow:
As much as possible, avoid doing the following for the first few hours after the treatment, or when the redness or swelling is still present:
- Avoid applying makeup
- Avoid your face or skin being directly exposed to the sun
- Avoid touching the treated area
- Avoid doing a thorough skincare routine
There is no downtime required after a Pico Laser toning treatment, but these reminders are vital to remember to help the patients have a more effective set of results.
