If you are experiencing sun damage, dark skin spots (hyperpigmentation), melasma, or would like to be rid of a tattoo, the PicoWay laser might be right for you.
The Kwan Dermatology team specializes in the treatment of ethnic skin. Our founder, Dr. William Kwan, is the country-leading dermatology expert in the treatment of ethnic skin conditions. As a result, people with ethnic skin types come from all over to have their skin treated by the Kwan Dermatology team.
One of our most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation (dark skin spots) is the PicoWay laser, which Dr. Kwan had specially calibrated by the manufacturer to treat ethnic skin without permanently damaging it — as we have seen in some patients who have come to us to help them with skin damage caused by the wrong use of laser treatment, or the wrong laser used altogether.
The PicoWay laser works to remove dark pigment spots or tattoos from the skin. Its unique design allows it to diminish a wide variety of tattoo types and colors, even designs that may not have responded to other removal methods. Another bonus of the PicoWay laser is that it can be adjusted to work with any skin tone. In comparison to other picosecond lasers, PicoWay uses 40% shorter pulses, which allows it to break up pigment into smaller particles. This makes it easy for the body to clear away the pigment particles and yields faster treatment results. The PicoWay laser is also a good solution for pigmented blemishes or lesions, skin irregularities, and the signs of aging. It works with these conditions much the same way as it does with tattoos – breaking up pigment into tiny particles that are then cleared out by the body. The results after treatment are a brighter, clearer complexion that is plumped and youthful.
One of the many perks of the PicoWay laser is that it produces better results in fewer treatments for all skin types. Because it has concentrated, high-power energy that is delivered ultra-fast to targeted treatment areas, it does not produce as much heat and does not damage the skin. Another plus is that the superb speed of the pulses prevents heat from transferring to other parts of the skin, making it a painless procedure. During your first visit, the laser may be tested on a small area of skin to determine if it is a variable option for your unique skin type. After your doctor delivers a treatment, there may be a need for more treatments depending on your skin needs. Call Kwan Dermatology to schedule a consultation if you have a pigmented blemish, unwanted tattoos, or fine lines that you would like to resolve. PicoWay may be the solution for your skin needs.
