Every new year comes with a new set of goals that we want to achieve. Having the self-confidence to present ourselves in front of new opportunities and challenges is part of the process. With all the things we want to achieve, the last thing that we want to worry about is our skin. Many of us wish to spend less time putting on makeup to conceal scars, acne marks, rosacea, and dark spots.  Do you agree? Or how about not having to worry about what filter to use to hide skin imperfections?

At last, the solution has been found to solve all of these common skin care problems, and more. Luminisce is the first dermatology clinic to bring PICOPLUSTM in the country. PICOPLUS is a versatile, non-invasive, and US FDA-approved laser that can treat various skin pigmentation problems such as melasma, pigmentation and pigmented lesions, tattoos, acne and acne scars, age spots, freckles, uneven skin tone, and other difficult skin cases that do not respond to similar technologies. It is the latest in skin laser technology that works faster, better, and safer than most lasers in the market.

PicoPlus Experience at Luminisce Skin Clinic, BGC

I tried the PicoPlus laser to improve the appearance of my acne scars. I used to have acne on my face even big cystic ones. They left me with “ice pick” scars on my cheeks (left and right) and on the temples of my forehead. Overtime as I age, I also developed skin pigmentation which makes my face appear with an uneven tone. If you want to know if your skin has an uneven tone or discolaration, try taking a selfie with and without a beauty app. Beauty filters remove skin discolarations, that’s why we like these filtered versions of our faces better.

With the PicoPlus technology, you can achieve the same effect in real life, no more filters required. My first PicoPlus session at Luminisce Skin Clinic already blasted skin discolorations. Watch this video to see how the laser works. If it can erase tattoos then what more with just skin pigmentations:

The PicoPlus laser has different heads/tips and modes. During your consultation with a skin doctor, you will be asked about your most pressing skin concern. Examples are scars, melasma, acne scars, or skin discoloration and improving your overall skin tone. For my first session, I chose to target skin discoloration first. This included blemishes, acne spots, and age spots.

Acne scars will need a different mode with higher level of laser. I wanted to try the standard mode first.

The entire treatment for PicoPlus laser only took about 15 minutes. The laser worked very fast and I felt a very fast and warm tingling sensation on my face. I can imagine and somehow feel the way this laser technology was like erasing my skin imperfections! You will know what I mean when you try it.

Since I only had my skin discolorations treated, I did not experience any down time and right after the treatment – I looked like I was wearing concealer! This is because the pigmentation were shattered by the laser in real time. The appearance of my skin also improved day after day. It is now about a month since my first treatment and I still receive compliments about how my skin improved. My friends are quick to point out that my acne scars also disappeared and I’m surprised because we only targeted skin discolorations. I can’t wait to deal with the minimal scars that remained with the correct mode of PicoPlus Laser that can target them.

I can honestly say that the PicoPlus Laser is worth trying out. It will save you a lot of time and money in dealing with skin imperfections because the results are almost instant. Try PicoPlus for yourself and say hello to your best skin ever this 2019.

P.S. The first PicoPlus in the Philippines is only available at Luminisce Skin Clinic. The clinic’s physician, Dr. Kaycee Cuevas Reyes-Bacani, has practiced dermatology in several areas both locally and internationally. She is one of the few in the country to have recently completed a Master of Science in Preventive Medicine at International University in Dresden, Germany that specializes in preventive and regenerative medicine.
