Most of us would like smoother and more even skin, free from wrinkles, blemishes and brown spots – especially those of us living in sun-drenched Brisbane! One of the biggest challenges in improving these concerns is that many of the current aesthetic medical devices on the market, require downtime and aren’t always comfortable.
PicoWay Resolve is an exciting development in non-invasive skin rejuvenation that offers significant improvement in sun spots, brown spots, freckles, skin tone and texture, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and pore size in fewer treatments with less discomfort and minimal downtime.
We are excited that Cosmetic Medicine Centre is among the first clinics in Queensland to offer this breakthrough skin rejuvenation treatment.
How does PicoWay Resolve work?
PicoWay Resolve is part of the acclaimed PicoWay laser system from Candela Medical. The special Resolve applicator is a state of the art treatment for pigmentation and skin rejuvenation that splits the main laser beam into smaller beams. The beams deliver ultra-short picosecond laser pulses that reach below the surface of the skin, creating a “photoacoustic” effect that shatters unwanted pigment and stimulates production of collagen and elastin, without breaking the outermost layer of the skin. PicoWay Resolve literally works from the inside out.
Because of the split laser beams and ultra-short pulses (in picoseconds), the output of heat energy is less compared with most lasers, so less energy is transferred to the skin. This results in less pain and discomfort during the treatment and no lengthy recovery time.
Results are seen gradually, over the next 6-8 weeks.
What’s it for?
– Pigmentation – benign pigmented lesions including brown spots, age spots and freckles
– Skin tone and texture
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Acne scars
– Skin rejuvenation
What can you expect with PicoWay Resolve?
The treatment takes around 30 minutes and discomfort should be minimal. You can usually resume your normal activities or go back to work immediately after, making this a true “lunchtime” procedure for busy professionals.
You should expect some redness immediately after treatment, which typically lasts anywhere from hours to a couple of days, and pigmented areas may appear darker or lighter for the first several days. There is little discomfort following the procedure, and makeup can be applied, in most cases, immediately.
The number of PicoWay Resolve treatments you need depends on your needs and goals.
Is PicoWay Resolve right for me?
Unlike many other skin rejuvenation devices, PicoWay Resolve is suitable for all skin types – light to dark – and it can be performed all year round.
If you’re looking for a low downtime, effective treatment to improve pigmentation, skin tone and texture, and general signs of skin ageing, PicoWay Resolve could very well be the treatment you’ve been looking for.
