PicoWay- The Leading Technology To Remove Skin Pigmentation
The PicoWay is the latest generation Picosecond laser skin pigmentation removal device. It allows Detail Smoother Skin to treat skin pigmentation for all skin types in the shortest time possible, with next to no heat. Heat from other lasers can stimulate post- inflammatory-pigmentation (PIH) to form in skin type IV to VI. This is the reason why normal lasers are not advisable on dark skin. You treat the present pigmentation but then cause PIH to form after the treatment. PicoWay is really the only current solution available for skin types that produce more melanin in ethnicity backgrounds from:

GentleMax Pro is one of the most effective laser treatments to resolve lentigines (freckles) on the face and decolletage (chest area). This solution is more cost effective than the PicoWay.
PicoWay- Frequently Asked Questions
How Laser Skin Pigmentation Removal Works
Medical grade lasers remove skin pigmentation by delivering specific wavelengths of laser light into the skin in very short bursts of picosecond or microsecond pulses of energy, creating a shockwave that fragments the pigment and allows the body’s immune system to attack and eliminate the dispersed pigment. The body’s immune system removes the fragmented pigment. The number of treatments are determined by the laser system used and the person’s immune system response. The clinicians at Detail Smoother Skin are responsible for explaining this process thoroughly during the free consultation. Each expertly trained and accredited clinician will assess your skin type and adjust the laser to provide the optimum setting to deliver the results you expect with minimum discomfort.
What is the downtime after a treatment?
There is very little downtime. You will experience redness for 24 hours. The time between treatments is 4 weeks.
