Which areas can be treated?
PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands, and other areas of the body where signs of sun damage and excessive pigmentation become noticeable.
What will happen during Pico Genesis treatment and what will I feel?
Your doctor will clear the treatment area before treatment. You will feel that the tip of the laser device is touching your skin. While laser energy is applied, you will feel a feeling that your patients often liken to electrification. Most patients do not feel uncomfortable with this treatment, but if you feel unwell, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to you. You can apply cold air or ice bag for a short time immediately after the treatment. You should protect the treated area from the sun and / or apply sunscreen. Your PICO Genesis doctor can offer you additional care after treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately after treatment. These side effects are temporary and usually disappear within a few hours. For a few days, the treated sun spots and freckles will darken, and as they heal, they will exfoliate and reveal new, smooth skin.
Can you return to daily life immediately after treatment?
Although mild redness and swelling lasting for several hours following treatment, you can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
