What is the difference between Picocare 450 laser and normal laser?
Lasers use a solitary wavelength to deliver the vitality to targeted skin areas. Available at The Clifford Clinic in Singapore, Picocare 450 lasers can distribute energy in prodigiously short bursts (within several billionths of a second). The speedier the laser is, the more proficient it is. A quick laser has a shorter span between laser beats, which means it gives more laser beats each second. The shorter burst of energy circulated by the laser disrupts the pigment-containing cells within the skin, resulting in fading and clearing of the affected area. The energy conveyed by the Pico laser can also rebuild skin collagen and improve its surface.
HOW DOES THE PICOCARE 450 LASER WORK?
The Picocare laser can perform many different functions. It can get rid of pigmentations and treat acne scars, rough textures and pores at the same time. How the Picocare laser is able to help scars is through the use of very fine laser beams that penetrates below the skin, causing tiny bubbles to form using micro-explosions.
The laser can penetrate far beneath the surface of the skin to decimate the melanin that causes hyperpigmentation. It separates dull spots into smaller particles, to be naturally eliminated by the body. Gradually, darker spots and dull spots on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs will fade away.
When the laser is performed, the formed bubbles will fill up with collagen during the recovery and an “elevated” effect will help to raise depressed scars from acne.
Compared to the conventional subcision technique in the treatment of acne scars, the doctor would insert a needle below scars to raise it up manually. The Pico Laser utilises this Bubble Lift technology that replaces these old approaches entirely as it causes less discomfort and minimal injury while doing the same thing.
WHAT CAUSES SKIN PIGMENTATION?
Skin pigmentation happens when the skin produces an excessive amount of melanin. Melanin is created by melanocytes and capacities as protection on skin cells to shield the skin from sun and UV-rays. Age spots, sun spots, and melisma can show up on the face, hands and arms if the skin is not properly taken care of.
UV-damage is the biggest culprit for pigmentation to occur. The UVA and UVB beams are the key reasons for untimely skin maturing and they can cause hyperpigmentation and sun spots. The degree of UV damage depends on a person’s skin shade and the extent of the sun exposure. Melasma, which is an extremely common form of pigmentation, can now finally be removed and managed with this Pico Laser treatment. The Pico laser is able to break up the pigments in your skin more effectively, thus lightening the affected area in the process. Picocare 450 laser with HEXA MLA handpiece can also help to lift depressed acne scars and minimise enlarged pores on and around the nose area.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF PICOCARE 450 LASER?
Picocare 450 laser is a comfortable and painless procedure with the use of topical numbing cream. Lesser side effects are seen after Picocare 450 laser, compared to other laser treatments. Patients normally experience minimal downtime after treatment. This treatment requires lesser sessions therefore, making it an efficient and effective choice for laser treatment in Singapore.
