Before & After Photos

How Does PICO Genesis Treatment Work?

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.

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.


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. 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 the treatment.

Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve in several hours. Over the course of a few days, the treated sun spots 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.

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. 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.
