Throughout history human beings have always strive to be perfect. To get rid of those dark spots, to get a spotless glowing skin tone. In the past, this has been done through formulation of skin care creams. With technological advancements of the 21st century, more effective and faster methods have been developed. However, these have in some cases come at a painful cost- severe side effects. In recent years, laser treatment has become popular as it is the safest, most effective and fast method of removing dark at spots.
If you are just starting out, curious or pondering on the way to go, there is a brand new technique. During this year’s (2018) Annual American Academy of Dermatology Meeting, a new product was launched. The PiQo4 from Lumen. A new laser treatment that uses non-thermal energy to target affected areas. It is FDA-approved and treats multiple skin discoloration issues such as age spots, melasma, sunspots, tattoo removal, birthmarks and uneven skin tones.
What is PiQo4 and How Does it Do its Magic?
To get started, PiQo4 is a laser treatment method that uses non-thermal energy to repair a wide range of skin pigment issues.
If you are going to believe that PiQo4 works magic, then it’s is essential to understand how it works. PiQo4 uses four unique features to ensure skin restoration is faster and safe. These features are:
1. Picosecond and nanosecond laser pulses.
2. High energy.
3. 4- Wavelengths.
4. Deep reach to enable deep pigment dismantling
Double Effective Treatment
Picosecond and nanosecond laser pulses
Nanosecond and picosecond are simply types of laser pulses. At first the nanosecond will release high energy in short bursts into the affected areas. This will breakdown the bigger and deeper pigment particles into smaller granules.
The area will then be re-scanned this time with the picosecond laser pulses. This will dismantle the shallower and now smaller pigment particles. This double treatment ensures PiQo4 gets rid of those dark spots faster than when using one kind of pulse.
Laser pulses are in the form of light energy. Once they reach the target area, quite short laser pulses are absorbed. This causes the transformation of light energy to acoustic waves. These acoustic waves are the ones that shatter the pigment particles in a quick and effective way. PiQo4 produces 10 times more energy in both the 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths.
PiQo4 comes with a wider spot reach. Its spot size ranges from 2mm- 15mm. This is one of the largest in the industry right now. This enables it to have a deeper reach compared to other laser treatments. It can easy get rid of bigger spots and even tattoos uniformly without damaging the skin. This makes PiQo4 yield results in record time.
Different colors absorb specific wavelengths. To dissolve them then you have to target them with an estimated wavelength. PiQo4 designers figured out the most common pigment /ink color wavelengths and designed this laser treatment to that tune. It has 4 wavelengths – 1064nm, 585nm, 650nm and 532nm for effective breakdown of the most
common pigment granules. It targets the 9 most common tattoo colors. It can erase all colors of the rainbow.
Why Opt for PiQo4 Laser Treatment for Dark Spots?
Since its first use PiQo4 has had success stories. One such case is David J. Goldberg, MD a New York Dermatologist who underwent the procedure himself and had immense success. Here are some of the benefits of PiQo4 procedure;
1. Hardly any pain
Dr. Goldberg a beneficiary of the treatment witnesses to hardly any pain. This procedure is very gentle. Also, in most cases, it does not require downtime, making it hustle free. Healthy adults can safely handle the procedure.
2. Faster Treatment
With up to 15mm in spot size capacity, the treatment time is almost halved. It can treat larger spots and even tattoos which are normally quite large with relative ease compared to lasers with smaller spot sizes. As a result PiQo4 treatment yield results faster as lesser treatment sessions are required. Research shows that PiQo4 is up to 40% faster than other laser dark spots removal methods.
3. Boosts Natural Collagen Production
Apart from pigment shattering PiQo4 also rejuvenates the skin. Not only does one get rid of dark sports but the skin looks much better. Thanks to PiQo4 that boosts the skins natural production of collagen, responsible for making the skin healthy and look much younger.
4.Capacity to treat large spots and tattoos evenly
Due to their small spot size other treatment methods tend to remove tattoos and large spots more unevenly. This is as a result of more refocusing to cover the whole target area. With PiQo4, spots up to 15mm can be targeted with only one focus leading to even removal. Better results can be achieved for tattoos because of the less refocusing required.
Unfortunately, despite its great benefits, the procedure is not recommended for persons with a history of keloid scaring and those patients with cancerous lesions. Always consult with specialists, dermatologist or plastic surgeons to determine if you are eligible for this procedure.
PiQo4 is undoubtedly the best latest cutting-edge technology in skincare. Dark spots, age spots, melisma and other pigment issues can now be treated faster and safely. However, treatment varies from one person to the other. Others will get results in the first try, while others will have to undergo several treatments. In the end all will have a rejuvenated skin. One must always ensure they get services from trusted, registered specialists.
