CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

PICO GENESIS

PICO Genesis uses Cutting Edge technology to provide highly effective laser treatment for the skin. It combines the benefits of three wave lengths delivered in ultra short pulses – picoseconds and nanoseconds- creating non-thermal; photo-mechanical disruption. This essentially remodels deeper layers of the skin to create a flawless, glowing and rejuvenated finish.

These wavelengths allow treatments targeted to a wide range of skin conditions. Some which are Melasma, Superficial pigmentation, Sunspots, Acne scarring, Ice-pick scaring and pigmentation. The benefit of this technology allows for less down time. These pulse durations, contrary to traditional laser treatments, carry much lower risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The number of treatments depend on the individual and skin condition being treated. However, results have been seen directly after the first treatment and sometimes best result after the second treatment.

At bySTELLA we pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience. You can be sure that your safety is our first priority. Our thorough consultations ensure we have all the necessary information to assess your condition and minimise risk of complications. Most patients are able to tolerate treatments with minimal discomfort. Some which find relaxing following warming of the skin.
