What is PicoFocus?

PicoFocus Skin Treatment is an advanced, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses picosecond laser technology to reduce skin hyperpigmentation and signs of aging by stimulating the body’s healing response. It boosts collagen and elastin production to help create new and healthy skin cells.

While traditional laser therapies use heat, which may damage surrounding tissues, PicoFocus gently treats skin conditions using targeted picosecond laser technology. The lasers are set to hyper-specific wavelengths to emit concentrated pulses of light energy deep into the skin, avoiding damage to the surrounding tissues. This advanced technology results in minimal side effects and requires no downtime. What also sets this treatment apart is there is no sun-sensitivity afterwards, making it safe all year round.
