PicoGenesis™ is one of the leading treatments for pigmentation issues. If you struggle with age spots, melasma or other skin imperfections, you can try PicoGenesis™ today at 7 Seas Medical Spa. We offer this treatment to patients in Evans, Columbia City and Augusta, GA.
What is PicoGenesis™?
PicoGenesis™ is a non-thermal laser treatment that gently addresses pigmentation issues in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This results in a treatment that is more effective, more comfortable, and requires significantly less downtime. The PicoGenesis™ treatment delivers two effective wavelengths of light, stimulating collagen production and breaking up pigment to address the following cosmetic concerns on the face and body:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Melasma and hyperpigmentation
- Uneven skin tone
How Much Does PicoGenesis™ Cost?
The cost of your PicoGenesis™ treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the PicoGenesis™ Treatment Like?
The PicoGenesis™ treatment is a simple, 20-minute procedure that requires no anesthetic. During treatment, quick pulses of light are delivered to the skin using the PicoGenesis™ hand piece. Some patients compare this process to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin, but find the procedure to be surprisingly tolerable.
Is There Any Recovery Period After PicoGenesis™?
Unlike more aggressive laser treatments, there is no downtime required after PicoGenesis™. You may notice some slight swelling or flaking of the skin after treatment, but these effects are brief and generally fade in a day or two. You will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from PicoGenesis™?
Patients can expect to see results from PicoGenesis™ after their first or second treatment. These results will continue to improve with additional treatments. We may recommend up to five treatments for optimal results, which are performed in two-week increments.
