LASER SKIN RESURFACING IN DENVER
PICO Genesis FX: Going beyond rejuvenation and skin remodeling
Experience the PICO Genesis FX premium laser therapy that goes beyond top layer skin rejuvenation to remodel the skin's cell structure deep down - generating healthy new collagen and elastin. Smooths fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey texture, resolves pigments, reduces appearance of scars, dark sun and age spots for brighter youthful skin. Results are long-lasting, on par with any traditional resurfacing laser but with very little discomfort, and no lengthy recovery time to yield beautiful healthy skin!
PICO Genesis FX leads a generation of new non-ablative resurfacing laser treatments to safely and effectively treat acne scars, textural improvements and skin quality, and improve overall skin radiance on all skin types, without heat. PICO Genesis FX sends light energy with ultra-short pulses through two hundred micro lenses to deliver fractional energy to create tiny micro-wounds in the the epidermis and dermis tissue stimulating collagen production thereby remodeling the skin's texture, tone and overall quality.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
PICO Genesis FX is a new addition to Cutera’s enlighten platform that uses fractionated picosecond laser pulses delivered with a novel Micro Lens Array (MLA) handpiece for the treatment of acne scarring and textural improvements.
PICO Genesis FX delivers fractionated, high-energy picosecond pulses to induce non-thermal optical breakdown within the dermis to promote collagen remodeling and elastin production while leaving the epidermis unharmed.
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Skin damage due to light exposure and aging results in the thinning of the dermis and epidermis, changes in skin texture, acne scars, wrinkles, and vascular and pigmentation changes. Symptoms of aging and photodamage, such as wrinkles and skin laxity, are associated with reduced collagen and elastin levels in the dermis. Ablative lasers, such as carbon dioxide lasers, have been used on the skin for a long time. They produce thermal damage to both the epidermis and dermis. The damage to the epidermis allows thermolysis of the deeper layers of the dermis and results in the production of collagen and elastin. These ablative laser treatments, however, have a long social downtime and are associated with the risk of hyperpigmentation and infections. Ablative fractional resurfacing can decrease downtime and complications, however, the need for multi-pass treatment may result in increased downtime.
Non-ablative lasers, in contrast, result in selective thermal heating of the dermis without damaging the epidermis. Although safer than ablative laser technologies, most non-ablative laser technologies are not able to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis and have limited efficacy in the treatment of deep wrinkles. There are newer fractional non-ablative laser resurfacing procedures though, that involve selective damage to microscopic zones in the dermis and provide a balance between efficacy, safety, social downtime, and adverse effects.
RESULTS ARE ACCUMULATIVE
As with any type of treatment that creates a micro-injury to the skin's epidermis or dermis, it takes a few weeks to months to see the long term effects. However, there are noticeable changes in the skin's tone, texture and overall quality almost immediately following a laser treatment. Yet, it's not until the weeks and months following the treatments that you see the biggest overall change. While subtle, there's no denying that something has improved. Softening of deep wrinkles, brighter color tone, smoother texture, and a radiant glow.
What's remarkable about the PICO Genesis FX therapy is that the results are long-lasting, and the remodeling effects continue to generate healthy new skin tissue at the cellular level.
