Picoway Treatment Review

Pigmentation, rough skin, fine lines and large pores? Say hello to flawless skin with this new laser treatment that works 5 times faster than Revlite. Today I am sharing my Picoway Laser Treatment experience at Clarence Slimming and Dermatology Centre.

What is Picoway?

PicoWay is a cutting-edge dual wavelength picosecond laser from Syneron Candela. It removes multi-colored tattoos, stubborn tattoos and skin pigmention.

PicoWay’s unique mode of action is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue. Most lasers out in the market today uses nanosecond pulses. 

1 nanosecond = 1000 picoseconds Faster results + more comfort!

What can you treat with PicoWay?

All Tattoo Colors & Types
Pigmented Lesions
Skin Irregularities & Signs of Aging

Benefits of Picoway

Better results in few treatments for different skin types
Fast results, ultra-fast delivery of concentrated, high-power energy
Minimal risk, minimal discomfort

My Picoway Experience
My face is cleansed thoroughly before treatment. Dr. Joan Clarence- Morallo checks my skin and discusses the treatment with me: what to expect, what it does and what makes it different from Revlite. My eyes are covered with protective goggles and the treatment begins. The laser feels like something is strongly tapping against my skin. You will also hear a tapping noise once it begins. It feels definitely more comfortable than Revlite. With Revlite it feels like there are rubber bands snapping against your skin and sometimes it does hurt a bit (bearable but uncomfortable). With Picoway, I experienced no pain or discomfort. 

1st treatment July 8
I experienced mild purging after my first treatment. Dra Joan advised me that this sometimes happens and it's recommended to get your skin professionally cleaned if you have any blackheads/trapped sebum before doing this. To be honest I haven't been to the dermatologist months prior to this due to my busy work schedule. The breakouts subsided after a week.

2nd treatment Aug 11
I didn't get any breakouts after the 2nd treatment and I can definitely see and feel the improvement now. My skin feels smoother and my pores feel tighter/smaller. I have pigmentation on the sides of my mouth and that has lightened considerably too. My burn scar from my horrendous laser experience at Skinhouse looks less obvious also. I'm not sure if its the weather or from the treatment but I experienced slight micro peeling on the sides of my face. Nothing obvious really.

 will update you  guys once I am done with my 3rd treatment this coming September

The proof is in the results. Check out my skin after almost 2 months. My skin looks more even-toned, it feels firmer and smoother, my pores seem smaller and the pigmentation around my mouth has lightened up. Click on the photo to enlarge it

I'm pretty happy and confident with my bare skin. I've been having minor breakouts since this photo was taken since I just got my period.

I have always relied on skin supplements, skincare and laser treatments to keep my skin in tip-top shape. It might not look it now but I had horrible acne-riddled skin growing up. It took a lot of effort and Derma treatments to get to where I am so you could say that I am strong advocate for prioritizing skincare and skin treatments over makeup. Finding the right skincare regimen, dermatologist and laser treatment can be a life-altering experience.

I love going to Clarence Slimming and Dermatology Centre I can't believe it's been 3 years since I first went there! I've gone there for Diode hair removal (underarms) and Revlite (face and underarms) and I highly recommend them to my friends and anyone looking for a good dermatologist and beauty clinic. They have the friendliest staff, cozy amenities and the latest innovative treatments. I love how Dr. Joan really listens and personally attends to your needs. They have the same cutting-edge machines and procedures like those celebrity-endorsed clinics with more affordable prices since they are less about marketing gimmicks and more about providing quality skin treatments.
