PiqO4 by Lumenis
What is the PiqO4 by Lumenis?
The PiqO4 laser is a laser that delivers high quality results for the removal of brown spots, tattoo removal, and overall rejuvenation. The PiqO4 uses an innovative approach of photo acoustic energy to break down pigmentation. Photo acoustic energey is the conversion of light into sound waves that create pressure waves and minimizes the thermal effects of the laser. This delivers faster results with less thermal energy (heat) generated during the process. Less heat during treatment lowers risk of thermal complications, and a better healing response.
Is Piq04 Right for Me?
The use of Piqo4 is best recommended by your provider. There are usually a variety of treatment options, or combinations of treatments that are appropriate for your concern. Other considerations such as other other systemic or skin conditions, and your skin type would be considered when recommending the Piqo4. The laser may be recommended for the following conditions:
Unwanted pigmentation and lesions
General skin toning and rejuvenation
Facial lines and wrinkles (rhytides)
Skin pigmentation associated with photoaging
Surgical and acne scarring
How many procedures do I need?
The number of procedures will be highly dependent on what skin concern you are addressing. For hyperpigmentation or brown spots, you should see results immediately, but may need 3 to 6 treatments in order to get the desired result. Use of the Piqo4 for PicoFractional treatment stimulates new collagen growth which can take longer to see results. Tattoo removal results is highly dependent on the ink used but would typically require 3-5 treatments.
