PicoWay Laser Skin Resurfacing in Nanaimo

For acne scar removal, PicoWay works by targeting the scar tissue with high-energy laser pulses, which break up the scar tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen. This process helps to smooth out the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of scars.

In terms of anti-aging, PicoWay can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production and cell regeneration. The treatment can also improve skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

PicoWay can also be used to reduce the appearance of sun damage, including dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and even melasma caused by hormone fluctuations, a condition which is extremely difficult to treat by any other means. By breaking up the excess melanin in the skin, PicoWay can help to even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of discoloration.

How is PicoWay Laser different from HALO Laser?

PicoWay and HALO Laser are both types of laser treatments used for skin rejuvenation and are designed to treat different types of skin concerns.

PicoWay is a picosecond laser that uses ultra-short pulses of energy to break down unwanted pigmentation, tattoos, and acne scars. It works by delivering high-intensity laser energy to the targeted area, causing the pigment to break down into smaller particles that can be absorbed and eliminated by the body.

On the other hand, HALO Laser is a hybrid fractional laser that uses two types of laser energy, ablative and non-ablative, to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin texture. It works by delivering microscopic columns of laser energy to the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen production.

Overall, while both PicoWay and Halo Laser are effective skin rejuvenation treatments, they differ in their mechanisms of action and are better suited for different types of skin concerns.
