Pico Laser for Melasma Treatment

Are you among the many individuals struggling with melasma? Have you tried countless creams and serums with little to no success? If so, you may be interested in the innovative pico laser treatment for melasma in Pune.

Pico laser treatment is a newer laser technology that offers a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of melasma without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. 

But what can you expect during and after your pico laser treatment for melasma?

Pico Laser for Melasma Treatment

Pico laser treatment uses a specialised device that delivers ultra-short energy pulses to the affected skin area. The laser emits light energy in the picosecond (trillionth of a second) pulses, significantly faster than traditional lasers used for melasma treatment.

The high-speed pulses create a photomechanical effect that breaks up the melanin pigment particles into smaller fragments, which are then naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system. The treatment does not damage the surrounding skin tissue or cause significant thermal damage, which means it is generally safer and more effective than other laser treatments for melasma.

Here is what you can expect during and after your pico laser treatment for melasma:

During the Treatment

  • Before the treatment, your melasma doctor will clean your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to minimise discomfort during the procedure.
  • During the treatment, a laser device will deliver ultra-short pulses of energy to the affected area, which breaks up the pigment without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
  • The procedure typically takes between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

After the Treatment

  • Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear red and slightly swollen, but this should subside within a few hours.
  • You may experience mild discomfort or itching, which can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication and cool compresses.
  • Avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect the treated area from further damage.
  • Most people will require several sessions spaced weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
