In the age of social media, beauty may seem only skin deep. But in reality, it is not. More than taking a perfect selfie, it is creating that great first impression, having self-confidence, and feeling good that makes one truly beautiful. And sometimes, it is those scars, acne marks, rosacea, and dark spots that weigh one down. In fact, these are the main reasons for having a skin care consultation in a clinic. At last, the solution has been found to solve all of these common skin care problems, and more.
The first use of lasers in medicine was in 1962 to remove tattoos. Half a decade later, laser technology has improved drastically, expanding its use in the medical and cosmetic field to treat a myriad of skin problems. PICOPLUS™ is the latest in skin laser technology that introduces a faster, better, and safer way to remove scars, tattoos, acne marks, and even melasma. It sets itself apart from traditional lasers as it can deliver energy in a fraction of a second! This speed allows fewer treatments with less downtime. And now, world-class boutique dermatology clinic Luminisce brings the country’s first ever PICOPLUS™ platform in the country.
PICOPLUS™ is a versatile, non-invasive, and US FDA-approved laser that can treat various skin pigmentation problems such as melasma, pigmentation and pigmented lesions, tattoos, acne and acne scars, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and other difficult skin cases that do not respond to similar technologies. It is the most advanced Nd:YAG laser to date. Nd:YAG stands for Neodymium: yttrium-alumunium-garnet, and is a crystal used as a laser medium. The Nd:YAG laser is non-ablative, which means that it can heat tissue without destroying it. It can treat a wide range of skin problems such as spider veins, age spots, freckles, dark spots, and more. Compared to the current Q-switched Nd:YAG nanosecond pulse lasers that have been used for decades, the PICOPLUS™ works in high power, quick, and short 450 picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses, as longer pulse durations mean a higher risk of damaging the surrounding tissue and less efficacy in treatment. With short pulses in high energy, the pigment is destroyed into smaller pieces, making elimination faster, producing more visible results in every treatment, and allows for shorter sessions overall. While current lasers deliver results as well, it is still limiting in terms of color density, side effects, lack of power, and pain tolerance for the patient.
LUMINISCE PICOPLUS LASER
With the efficacy and precision of the picosecond laser, PICOPLUS™ still stands out from the rest as it produces the highest energy (1.8GW) compared to other picosecond lasers. Moreover, it has mastered Asian skin like never before, when previous models only allowed treatment for lighter skin types. Its versatility, offering 4 wavelengths, means that it can achieve far better results as each treatment may be customized depending on the patient’s skin condition. Its effectivity, precision, and reliability make it an exceptional treatment option that meets patient expectations with guaranteed results.
Luminisce is the first dermatology clinic to bring PICOPLUS™ in the country. Its premium services not only addresses skin care needs, but the patient’s overall health across skin care, physical fitness, and psychosocial well-being. The clinic’s physician, Dr. Kaycee Cuevas Reyes-Bacani, has practiced dermatology in several areas both locally and internationally. She is one of the few in the country to have recently completed a Master of Science in Preventive Medicine at International University in Dresden, Germany that specializes in preventive and regenerative medicine.
