If you are ready to say goodbye to your uneven skin tone and unwanted pigmentation, schedule a private consultation to learn more about how PICO Genesis will gently clear away discolorations and achieve beautiful skin rejuvenation.

What is PICO Genesis?

PICO Genesis initially gained popularity as a tattoo removal procedure. Now, PICO Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots and age spots—gently, predictably, and quickly. PICO Genesis treatments will make your skin appear lighter, brighter, and more even in a series of two to three treatments.

PICO Genesis stands out from other laser rejuvenation procedures because it applies non-thermal energy to the skin. The laser pulses are targeted and ultra-short. The pulses disrupt unwanted pigment and encourage skin renewal without harming the surrounding tissue. Procedures that ablate skin discolorations with thermal energy can do more damage to skin tissue, requiring longer recovery times.

PICO Genesis harnesses picosecond pulses to remove pigment from the skin while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. Patients will have much shorter recovery times after PICO Genesis skin rejuvenation.

Thanks to the targeted application of picosecond pulses, patients can enjoy clear, brilliant skin with almost no downtime! Patients will see their desired results faster and in fewer treatment sessions than if they received conventional laser resurfacing.

Patients will be able to return to work immediately after receiving PICO Genesis. Post-procedure swelling and redness are not uncommon but will subside within a few hours of the treatment. Some patients may experience redness, itching, or bumps for up to a week following PICO Genesis, but this is rare. Patients can cover any redness with makeup.

Before and After Photos

How Does PICO Genesis Treatment Work?

Patients will see impressive improvements after two to three treatments and your best, clearest results within five treatments.

Everyone’s skin contains a substance called melanin. It’s what gives our skin its color. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance, clarity, and radiance to your skin. The non-thermal energy will remove damaged and pigmented skin cells while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. PICO Genesis also stimulates collagen production in the deep dermis. This will guarantee that new skin is not only clearer, it will also be firmer and have a healthy “glow.” PICO Genesis can be administered every two weeks.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation. PICO Genesis Laser is safe and approved for treating skin anywhere on the body.

Benefits of Pico Genesis

Why receive PICO Genesis? Patients choose to clear the surface of their skin with PICO Genesis because the procedure:

  • Will remove hyperpigmentation, age spots, brown spots, pigmented lesions, freckles, melasma, and sun damage from the skin.
  • Targets skin discoloration but leaves surrounding skin tissue intact.
  • Stimulates collagen production. This will improve skin healing and add youthful volume.
  • Can be administered to the face and body.
  • Is short. PICO Genesis takes only 20 minutes to administer!
  • Is comfortable. The most discomfort patients experience is a light “zap” against their skin, as if they were snapped with a rubber band.
  • Gets results after only two treatments, unlike most other laser rejuvenation procedures.
  • Requires little to no downtime.
  • Renews patient self-confidence. No need to hide your skin away, thanks to PICO Genesis!

Prior to treatment, your provider will clean the area. You will feel the tip of the laser device touch your skin. As the laser energy is applied, you’ll feel a sensation that patients often compare to “electric rain.” Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, but if you do, your treatment provider may apply a topical anesthetic. Your provider will target your unwanted pigmentation with picosecond energy waves.

PICO Genesis can be administered in under 20 minutes, depending on the needs of your case.

Immediately after treatment, you may apply cold air or an ice pack for a short time.


You should keep the treated area out of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection.

Although you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment, you can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following a PICO Genesis session.

Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the procedure. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve in several hours. Some patients may experience itching, redness, or bumps for up to a week after their treatment, but these cases are rare. Over the course of a few days, the treated sunspots and freckles will become darker and flake off as they heal, revealing a new, even complexion. Your PICO Genesis provider may recommend additional follow-up care.


Patients will see a reduction in their skin discolorations after only one or two treatments with PICO Genesis. Treated freckles, melasma, brown spots, age spots, and sun damage will darken and flake to reveal more even-toned skin underneath.

The PICO Genesis Laser will also stimulate collagen production within the deep skin. This will encourage skin healing after the procedure.

As newer, collagen-rich skin works its way to the surface, skin will be more volumized and take on a healthy “glow.” The added volume will also reduce the appearance of patients’ fine lines and wrinkles.

Patients will enjoy skin that has great tone and youthful volume for weeks following their procedure. Results will improve with every subsequent session.

Patients who practice a healthy lifestyle and safe sun exposure will enjoy clear, radiant skin for the long-term following their results with PICO Genesis.

How Many Treatment Sessions Are Required?

A series of two to three PICO Genesis treatments is recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Some patients may need as many as five treatments to completely eliminate their unwanted discolorations. Your PICO Genesis provider will discuss a treatment plan during your consultation.


The cost of a PICO Genesis treatment will depend on the number and extent of the areas treated. A cost estimate will be provided during your consultation.
