HOW DOES DISCOVERY PICO WORK?

The Discovery Pico system uses Quanta Pico technology to generate a pure photoacoustic effect. When applied to the skin, the generated energy shatters inks and pigmentation without harming surrounding tissue. This careful precision minimizes any discomfort you may feel during treatment.

As the newest generation of this laser system, the Discovery can be adjusted to one of four pulsing emission modes: Picoseconds, Nanoseconds, Opti Pulse, and Microsecond. This versatility allows us to tackle a range of patient concerns, from tattoos to wrinkles and acne scars. Best of all, treatment sessions require little-to-no downtime, meaning you can return to your daily routine immediately after your visit.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY DISCOVERY PICO TREATMENT?

This FDA-approved aesthetic laser uses concentrated light and pressure to rejuvenate your skin and eradicate ink/lesion particles. The Discovery Pico’s rapid ulta-short bursts target each individual section oft the treatment area. This process can take a total of 15-30 minutes, but average time may vary base on your specific treatment needs. This laser system has been show to provide long-lasting results.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FROM DISCOVERY PICO?

Pain and discomfort during the procedure is generally mild. Following your Discovery Pico laser treatment, some redness, swelling, and bruising may occur but will subside shortly.

After these side effects subsides, you will see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin. The beauty of the laser system is that it requires no downtime. After your session, you are free to leave and go about the rest of your day.

CAN DISCOVERY PICO TREAT SPIDER VEINS?

Along with unwanted tattoos, wrinkles, and lesions, the Discovery Pico is a good option for addressing spider veins. When targeted with the Discovery’s ultra-light bursts, spider veins collapse and get absorbed into your system. This effectively eases the bulging and discolored appearance of these offshoot veins.

HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY SKIN AFTER PICOSURE®?

In the week following treatment, the skin will be slightly more dry. We recommend using gentle cleansers, moisturizer and sunscreen during this time. After one week, it is safe to resume your normal skincare routine.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Treatment duration and the appearance of significant results varies based on your specific area of concern. When it comes to tattoo removal, this system has been proven roughly 100x faster than conventional Q Switch tattoo lasers. This power and precision allows for extremely rapid clearance of tattoo ink in a much shorter session period. On average, patients get complete clearance in half the sessions of conventional tattoo lasers. This means less time, less pain, and better results.

HOW MUCH DOES DISCOVERY PICO TREATMENT COST?

The cost of a Discovery Pico treatment varies based on the size of the treatment area and number of treatments needed to achieve maximal results. We can recommend services like CareCredit or Alphaeon that many of our patients use to spread out their treatment payments over time. Many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest.
