The PicoWay® laser system can remove:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Benign pigmented lesions
  • Freckles 
  • Tattoos 

This non-invasive laser delivers picoseconds of energy to the area of treatment and breaks down melanin or tattoo pigment within your skin. The laser targets the deeper layers of the skin, leaving the outer layers intact. Superficial damage inflicted by the laser allows for new collagen and elastin to grow, conferring clearer and firmer skin. 

Unlike traditional lasers, the PicoWay® laser does not heat your skin. This minimizes the risk of scarring and scabbing and eliminates the recovery period.  

Pain varies on the treatment; tattoo removal can be mildly painful, whereas treatments for wrinkles and pigmentation carry little to no discomfort. Side effects are generally limited to redness and swelling.

More About PicoWay Laser

Who is this treatment for?

The PicoWay® laser is suitable for most people and for all skin tones and skin types. It is one of the best skin treatments for people seeking to address unwanted pigmentation, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. 

It should not be used to treat cancerous pigmentation. Make sure that the pigmented areas you intend to treat have been approved by a medical professional as benign. 

What are the expected results of this treatment? 

The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the location, depth, size, and type of pigmentation. A clinical study has shown that 87% of lesions responded well to the PicoWay® laser after 2 treatments. Milder forms of pigmentation can even see vast improvements after a single treatment. 

Regardless of the extent of your treatment, you do not need to recuperate from it and can safely resume your daily activities. 
Whether you want a more even skin tone or a tattoo removed, Danny Guo MD can make it happen for you with PicoWay®. Our dermatologists’ proficiency with this laser means that they know exactly which wavelength and applicator best suits your skin and condition.
