If you’re looking to gently yet effectively correct an uneven skin tone, Revere’s skin brightening and hyperpigmentation treatments are ideal for you.
We are proud to be the first clinic in the UK embracing Pico Genesis with enlighten™ picosecond laser technology. Our unwavering dedication to our patients led us to invest in the very best, ensuring not just effectiveness but unparalleled comfort – You deserve nothing less.
Pico Genesis™ works by targeting the excess melanin in your skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin colour, but when it occurs in high concentrations it can result in dark spots and uneven skin tone, which can cause concern.
During the Pico Genesis™ procedure, the laser light is absorbed by the melanin, causing it to break down into tiny particles which are then sloughed off or absorbed into the body – leaving your skin lighter, brighter and more even.
Most skin toning procedures use a Q Switch laser, which treats the skin with a combination of light and heat. However, while this is effective for treating some pigmentations, it can make others worse – and in some cases the heat from Q Switch lasers can transfer to surrounding skin structures, damaging the tissue.
Pico Genesis™ uses the latest generation of non-thermal, photo-mechanical picosecond laser. Pico Genesis™ uses sound, not heat, to break down melanin while protecting the surrounding tissue. The procedure is non-ablative, meaning no layer of skin is removed. Unlike treatments that use Q Switch lasers, Pico Genesis™ uses non-thermal enlighten™ picosecond lasers which protect the surrounding tissue.
Pico Genesis™ has the added bonus of promoting smoother, brighter skin in just 24 hours, as well as addressing pigmentation. The full results of your treatment will be visible in just three weeks.
Our skin brightening and hyperpigmentation treatment harnesses cutting edge laser technology to treat a variety of skin concerns, fine lines and wrinkles, atrophic acne, icepick and acne scars, skin tone, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture. It is non-invasive and suitable for most skin types, including tanned and darker skin tones. However, it may not be recommended for patients with certain medical conditions or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
A series of two to three Pico Genesis™ treatments are recommended to achieve the best outcome. To maintain your results, a series of ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged – plus a targeted skincare routine. Your practitioner will discuss the likely outcome of your treatment at your complimentary, in-depth consultation.
The sensation is often likened to the snap of a rubber band. You’ll sense the laser device’s tip making contact with your skin; but don’t worry, we can apply a topical anaesthetic to keep you feeling at ease.
Side effects are temporary and typically resolved in a few hours. Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. An ice pack may be applied immediately after the treatment to ease any discomfort. You should then keep the treated area out of the sun and apply a high factor sunscreen for extra protection.
In a few days, the pigment will appear darker. This is also temporary and is a sign the treatment is working. The darker spots will appear to flake off over a few days.
Whilst you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours, you’ll be fit and ready to continue your day immediately after your treatment.
Revere Clinics love Picogenesis because not only is it effective the results can last for several years. This is dependant on the patient’s age, skin type, and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure and smoking.
We are as invested in your appearance as you are. We have sourced the very best in laser tech, blending it seamlessly with the top-level care Revere is known for. Beginning your laser journey with us will allow you to rest assured, knowing you’re with the best and safest hands in the industry.
