PiQo4 Skin Rejuvenation

Our PiQo4 laser is the new comprehensive solution to skin toning and rejuvenation, based on photoacoustic energy.

PiQo4 laser technology utilizes nano + pico laser pulses, 4 wavelengths, featuring high energy, deep reach and small to very large spot sizes allowing the shattering of deep dermal pigments and full clearance. Now, PiQo4 toning solution, has become even more versatile with its new PicoFractional and Photofacial treatments offering skin rejuvenation with enhanced neocollogenesis and zero-downtime.

What does it treat?

The PiQo4 provides a complete skin revitalization solution, enabling your provider to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun damage, vascular lesions, and melasma.  It also offers a great no-downtime option for overall skin toning and rejuvenation, similar to the IPL lasers.

What Should I Expect from the treatment?

Every treatment is customized to your individual needs.  In general, you can expect your skin to have a pinkish tone for 1-4 hours, and brown spots to appear lighter in appearance on the day after the treatment. The PiQo4 laser uses the conversion of light into sound waves to create tiny holes deep within the dermis, which is known as Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB).  The photoacoustic beam creates pressure waves, that initiate an enhanced inflammatory healing response resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin. All of that without thermal injury.

Between treatments, be sure to keep the area out of the sun and covered.  Your provider will also give you additional tips for care during your appointment.

Treatment Results:

The treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Already after the first session, you may begin to notice improvement in skin texture and pigmentation. Typically, about 4 sessions are needed to have a visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-6 sessions in 4-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
