Introducing the new PiQo4 from Lumenis. Targeting hyperpigmentation, melasma, sun damage, and tattoo removal, the PiQo4 offers fast and effective results
Our lives are marked on our skin. Whether it’s freckles from a summer spent in the sun or a tattoo from our younger years, our bodies act like a map of our experiences and stories. But what happens when we’re no longer happy with these ‘stories’ showing on our skin?
Introducing the new PiQo4 from Lumenis. With the advanced and powerful picosecond laser, treatment and removal of pigmentation issues including age spots, sunspots, melasma, and tattoo removal has been revolutionised.
With a large laser spot — ranging from 2 mm to 15 mm — the PiQo4 allows for an increased area to be targeted, significantly reducing treatment time and allowing for faster results overall.
PiQo4’s larger spot sizes allow deeper penetration into all layers of the skin, meaning the pigment is more easily dispersed. Plus, combining a larger spot size with a lower laser fluence has been shown to reduce scarring, blistering and discolouration.
Want to see the PiQo4 for yourself? Lumenis is proud to be hosting a Symposium with practising dermatologist Dr. Krystle Wang at this year’s AMWC Conference, Monaco. Come along and see this revolutionary technology on Thursday 5th April, from 4:30 to 5:30 (Room: Genevoix).
With the Lumenis PiQo4, clearing skin to pave the way for more confidence in your appearance has never been more achievable.
We’ve sat down with Dr. Krystle Wang, a practising dermatologist who has been treating patients with pigmentation issues for over 8 years and has been using the PiQo4 since October 2017, to find out more.
Dr. Wang explains, ‘According to recent research, over 47% of American adults aged 18–34 have a tattoo and of those, approximately 23% regret their choice. Combine this with a further 72% of adults stating that they are seeking to correct skin texture and discolouration, it’s unsurprising that we have seen an increased need for a powerful and effective tattoo and pigment removal laser within my practice.’
‘Utilising both nanosecond and picosecond pulse technology, the PiQo4 is able to effectively target pigment issues using the four different wavelengths available. This allows the laser to target the pigment through all layers of the skin, which is especially important when removing tattoos.’
‘Using the analogy of targeting a rock explains this well. The initial laser breaks the pigment from rocks into pebbles using the nanosecond technology. Utilising the picosecond technology, the pebbles are further broken down into sand, which makes it easier for the macrophages to clear the pigment away and results in a faster and more effective treatment result overall.’
With a legacy of innovation, Lumenis has over 220 registered patents and numerous FDA clearances, their global reach sees over 80,000 Lumenis systems in use with a presence in over 100 countries. The brand’s commitment to research and development has led to strong support and partnerships with KOL’s internationally.
