How Does PiQo4 Laser Effectively Treat Pigmented Lesions?

Skin Rejuvenation in Sandusky, OHThe PiQo4 laser system is our preferred laser system for skin rejuvenation at Vein & Body Specialists. In fact, it is one of the leading laser treatments for pigmented lesions and other forms of hyperpigmentation. This is because it offers unique advantages and benefits over other laser treatments, enhancing both results and patients’ treatment experience. Below, we’ll explain exactly how the PiQo4 laser treats pigmented lesions.

The PiQo4 Advantage

Unlike most laser treatments, which use heat as the primary source of energy to induce changes in the skin, the PiQo4 laser system uses acoustics to trigger the neocollagenasis process. This makes it a safer solution for all skin types, whether you have dark or light skin. The neocollagenasis process triggers the body’s natural healing process, kickstarting the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. In the months following treatment, the body naturally breaks up excess pigmentation in the skin to reduce the appearance of sun damage, pigmented lesions and other forms of hyperpigmentation.

The PiQo4 Treatment

The PiQo4 treatment is a comfortable treatment that requires minimal preparation. During treatment, you’ll hear popping sounds as the laser device is passed over the skin. Treatments typically take less than 30 minutes to complete. After treatment, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in skin texture, although you may also experience tightness or dryness in the skin, similar to a sunburn. These side effects should resolve within a day or two, and no downtime is needed with the exception of limiting sun exposure as the skin heals.

The PiQo4 Results

In the weeks and months following treatment, as the neocollagenasis process continues, the results from the PiQo4 sessions will become increasingly visible. Although you may notice results after the first treatment, most patients will require multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. Typically, we recommend a series of 3 to 5 PiQo4 laser treatments, performed every 2 to 6 weeks. With this treatment plan, patients will experience continued improvements in their skin tone and texture for as long as six months after their final treatment session.
