WHAT IS PICOWAY 

Meet the picosecond laser intentionally designed to work from the inside out.1-5,19

The PicoWay® laser system delivers high peak power and ultra-short pulse durations for a photoacoustic effect that transforms skin from the inside out.1-5 With this remarkably innovative picosecond laser, you can:

  • Significantly improve acne scars2 and wrinkles1 with a series of quick, 15- to 20- minute treatments, with low downtime.
  • Treat benign pigmented lesions with 50% clearance after two treatments (96% of treated discolorations) across a range of skin types (Fitzpatrick Types II-V).20
  • Treat a wide range of tattoos. Even difficult-to-treat blue and green tattoos.4,5 

PicoWay Resolve and PicoWay Resolve Fusion are split-beam treatments available on the PicoWay system. Click here to see a Resolve Treatment Guide with treatment videos to learn more about this popular, low-downtime treatment to address acne scars, wrinkles and benign pigmented lesions.

HIGHLIGHTS

Achieve outstanding results for your patients - and your practice.

Here are four big reasons your patients will love you for using the PicoWay system:

Clinical evidence. Studies have shown that PicoWay lasers can deliver:

  • Reduced acne scarring after just three treatments7
  • High rates of improvement in wrinkle appearance1,8 
  • A high rate of benign pigmented lesion clearance
  • Removal of multi-colored tattoos5

Comfort. The PicoWay Resolve system uses a well-tolerated approach to building new collagen and elastin in the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles.7,19

Low to no downtime. In brief, 15- to 20-minute treatment sessions, PicoWay Resolve treatment transforms skin while leaving the epidermis intact.

Photoacoustic effect. The PicoWay system’s photoacoustic effect, rather than photothermal effect, minimizes risk of skin heating and damage to surrounding tissue.21
