Hi everyone, some of you may know that I have been thinking about getting a non-invasive cosmetic procedure to help with collagen regeneration, smooth out my skin from acne scars, and to get rid of pigmentation and fine lines/wrinkles. I wanted something proven safe, successful and pain-free with no downtime. That is why I chose the PicoWay Resolve treatment at the Skin Revive Clinic in Wanneroo. I’m very excited to share with you my experience and results so without further ado, let’s discuss the ins and outs and my final thoughts.
What is PicoWay? It’s the latest and most advanced laser solution for not only getting rid of permanent tattoos but also targeting skin irregularities and the unwanted signs of aging. This advanced technology uses the shortest laser pulse picoseconds (one trillionth of a second) to break down benign pigmentation and minor imperfections.
The laser handpiece is used to target at a problem area of the skin in ultrashort picosecond pulses. It can shatter pigment into minuscule particles that can easily be eliminated by the body’s natural process. Or use it to reach the surface of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin for younger-looking skin. As this treatment emits less heat energy than your traditional lasers, it provides a much more comfortable treatment and no lengthy recovery.
As I have mentioned earlier I have been contemplating the Pico Way treatment for a while. A lot of the skincare products that I use help in one way or another, but I wanted to try something new and I am so glad I did! There are a few things to remember when going in for treatment. 1. Avoid saunas, swimming, exposure to excessive sunlight and self-tanning skin care products (You will need to use chemical-free 30+ sunblock for a few days after treatment.) 2. Your doctor may recommend 3-4 treatments (the number of treatments depends on which skin issues you are trying to address) done at monthly intervals for best results.
Picoway Resolve facial laser treatment is safe to use on all skin tones and can be used to help a variety of conditions including; Fine lines/Wrinkles, Freckles, Pigmentation, Age/sun spots, Loose skin, Reduce pore size, Acne Scars and Improve skin texture.
Upon arrival at the clinic, I felt a warm inviting and fun atmosphere. I met with the lovely Dr. Romi Ahluwalia who explained how the treatment works in a professional and easing manner. For my skin concerns in particular, Dr. Romi recommended that we do three treatments spaced about 1 month apart. She first applied a local anesthetic (numbing) cream all over my face to minimise any discomfort during the procedure and after about 20 minutes, I rinsed it off and was ready to begin. I was given safety eyewear and was asked to keep my eyes shut throughout the treatment.
Once we got started I was surprised at how comfortable I felt! Some people experience a sensation similar to a rubber band being snapped at your skin, however I did not feel a thing. The procedure took about 20 minutes and immediately following the treatment the doctor placed a cooling towel over my face then applied a calming cream all over. I was given two complimentary asap soothing gels to take home which instantly gave me cooling relief (Aloe Vera works well too).
Luckily for me, the redness subsided in a matter of hours and I was able to get on with my day. I was told that some people schedule an appointment during their lunch break and head back to work after their treatment. It has now been almost a week and I am so pleased with the results. My frown lines are almost gone, the pores on my cheeks and nose appear smaller and best of all, the dark spots and acne scars from past breakouts are fading away nicely. Picoway Resolve has helped smooth out my complexion and has made me more confident in the skin I’m in. I can’t wait to share the remainder of my journey with you and take you along on my next session.
