HIGHLIGHTS

Achieve outstanding results for your patients - and your practice.

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

  • Reduced acne scarring after just three treatments7
  • High rates of improvement in wrinkle severity1,8 
  • A high rate of benign pigmented lesion clearance
  • Removal of multi-colored tattoos5

Comfort. The PicoWay Resolve system uses a gentle approach to building new collagen and elastin in the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles. 

Low to no downtime. In brief, 15- to 20-minute treatment sessions, the fractional PicoWay Resolve system transforms skin while leaving the epidermis intact. So patients can get back to their lives quickly, without significant side effects.1,7
