What does a Pico laser do?

A Pico Laser is a non-ablative laser that can help improve many skin conditions: 

  • It can clear away skin imperfections like acne scarring and pigmentation by activating collagen production, resulting in a smoother, more vibrant complexion. 
  • In treating acne, the PICO Laser may also improve signs of premature aging, dull complexion, uneven tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, oily skin, and dark spots.

Does Pico laser actually work?

Pico laser used primarily in aesthetic dermatology, has shown effectiveness in various treatments, including acne scar reduction, skin rejuvenation and pigmentation issues. However, to know for sure if it will be effective for you, it's always best to consult with a qualified professional.

How long do Pico laser results last?

How long the results last can vary depending on a number of factors:

  • Your individual skin condition 
  • The severity of your concerns 
  • The number of treatments you receive

However, many people see results that last for several months to a year.

Is Pico Laser Treatment painful?

Pico Laser treatments are generally considered to be painless. However, some people do experience some discomfort during the procedure. It is often described as a feeling of warmth, tingling, or like tiny pinpricks.

Here are some things that can affect how comfortable the treatment is for you:

  • Your pain tolerance
  • Your skin sensitivity
  • The specific settings used during the treatment

If you are concerned about pain, talk to your doctor about what to expect during the procedure.

Is one session of Pico laser enough?

In general, one session of Pico laser is likely not enough to achieve the desired results. Most people require multiple sessions, typically between 2 and 6, to see significant improvement. The exact number of sessions you will need depends on your individual concerns and goals. For instance, if you have mild wrinkles, you might only need 2-3 sessions, whereas deeper wrinkles or acne scars might require 5 or more sessions.

Here are some factors that can influence the number of Pico laser sessions you will need:

  • The severity of your skin concerns
  • Your desired outcome
  • Your skin type
  • Your skin's healing response

During a consultation, a dermatologist or licensed aesthetician can assess your skin and recommend a personalised treatment plan.

Does your face peel after Pico laser?

Pico laser treatment does not cause significant peeling, especially when lower energy settings are used. However, some peeling or scabbing may occur with more intensive treatments or higher energy settings. Your dermatologist or cosmetic nurse can customise the energy settings to match your unique skin condition and concerns.

Do’s and Don’ts after Pico laser

Here are some Do's and Don'ts after Pico laser treatment:


  • Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids and using a gentle moisturiser.
  • Apply sunscreen diligently with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from sun damage.
  • Follow a gentle skincare routine using fragrance-free products.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider. This allows them to assess your progress and address any concerns.


  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and wear protective clothing if you must go outside.
  • Don't pick or scratch the treated area, as this can lead to scarring.
  • Avoid using harsh skincare products, such as those with retinol, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid.
  • Avoid swimming in pools or hot tubs for at least a week after treatment.
  • Don't smoke or drink alcohol, as this can slow down the healing process.

Can Pico laser make pigmentation worse?

Pico Laser treatments are designed to be safe and effective across a range of skin types.  In rare cases, Pico Laser treatment can lead to temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) or hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin) in the treated area. These changes are generally reversible and fade over time.

Is Pico laser worth it?

Pico lasers are a popular and effective option for treating a variety of skin concerns. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Pico lasers can target a wider range of pigments than traditional lasers, making them effective for treating sun damage, age spots, and acne scars.
  • Pico lasers deliver energy in picoseconds (trillionths of a second), which minimises heat damage to surrounding tissue. This can lead to faster healing times and fewer side effects.
  • Pico laser treatments are often more comfortable than traditional laser treatments, and they require minimal downtime.

Here are some things to consider when deciding if Pico laser treatment is right for you:

  • The cost of treatment will vary depending on the size and location of the area being treated, as well as the number of treatments required.
  • Pico laser treatment is not a one-time fix. You will likely need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.
  • It is important to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or other qualified healthcare professional to determine if Pico laser treatment is right for you.
