KEY BENEFITS

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 treatments  
  • High rates of improvement in wrinkle severity 
  • A high rate of benign pigmented lesion clearance 
  • Removal of multi-colored tattoos

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 PicoWay Resolve system transforms skin while leaving the epidermis intact. So patients can get back to their lives quickly, without significant side effects.

Photoacoustic effect. Ultra-short pulses enable the strong photoacoustic impact needed to effectively fracture pigment particles without overheating surrounding skin tissues. 

Practice Benefits

Remove Boldly. Treat Lightly. Profit Soundly.

The PicoWay system is a sound investment for your aesthetic practice. It may help you:

Build patient volume and differentiate your practice. With four FDA-cleared indications, the PicoWay system helps you attract a wide range of patients. And with consumers seeking effective aesthetic treatments with minimal downtime,11 PicoWay lasers can help set your practice apart. 

Gain versatility. The PicoWay system features three wavelengths (1064nm, 785nm, and 532nm) and multiple handpieces to maximise your treatment options — and your ROI.

Minimise risk in patients with darker skin shades. The PicoWay system’s ultra-short picosecond pulses are 100 times shorter than Q-switch lasers, in the trillionths of a second. Picosecond pulses minimise risk of side effects such as hypopigmentation and scarring that can often occur with slower, nanosecond pulse lasers.

Practice Benefits

The PicoWay system is a sound investment for your aesthetic practice. It may help you:

Reduce the need for post-treatment care. Exclusive PicoWay Resolve uses sub-surface ablation without breaking the stratum corneum, transforming your patient’s skin from the inside out and potentially minimising follow-up care needs.
