Laser Treatment for Pigmentation and Sun Damaged Skin

Are you one of the many Australians troubled by pigmentation or sun damaged skin on your face or body?

It is very common that people of different ages have different pigmentation lesions on their skin. Some of these may be present at birth, while others may appear gradually over time as we progress through our lives and be exposed to various elements that can attribute to the formation of pigmentation e.g. sun damage, normal ageing process etc.

While most of these pigmentation on the skin are not harmful and do not cause health concerns, they can however have an undesirable visual effect on those with the pigmentation.

Depending the position and severity of the pigmentation, it may sometimes have an negative affect on people’s facial and body image, thus having an impact on their work or social life, and in the more sever cases these could even affect people’s self confidence and their aspect to life in general.

Note: Some of the pigmentation lesions caused by sun damage could be of some health concern, if in doubt, always consult your doctor and consider having a skin (cancer) checkup! If you need assistance with the skin check up, both Dr Mira and Dr Bin are qualified and experienced physicians in this area, and will be more than happy to look after you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is PICO Genesis?

PICO Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots and age spots – gently, predictably and quickly. PICO Genesis treatments will make your skin appear lighter, brighter, and more even in a series of two to three treatments.

How does PICO Genesis treatment work?

Everyone’s skin contains a substance called melanin. It’s what gives our skin its colour. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance + clearance + radiance to your skin.

How many treatment sessions are required?

A series of two to three PICO Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Your PICO Genesis provider will discuss a treatment plan during your consultation.

What areas can be treated?

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation.

What can I expect during an PICO Genesis treatment and what does it feel like?

Prior to treatment, our consultant will clean the area. You will feel the tip of the laser device touch your skin. As the laser energy is applied, you’ll feel a sensation that patients often compare to an electric rain sensation. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, but if you do, your treatment provider may apply a topical anaesthetic. Immediately after treatment, you may apply cold air or an ice pack for a short time. You should keep the treated area out of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection. Your PICO Genesis provider may recommend additional follow-up care.

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation.

What are the possible side effects?

Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve in several hours. Over the course of a few days, the treated sun spots and freckles will become darker and flake off as they heal, revealing a new, even complexion.

Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?

Although you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment, you can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment.

Can you show me some sample photos before and after the procedure?
