Before the holiday started last December, I had a chance to visit Luminisce clinic in their BGC branch for the launching of the latest machine they have to help customers get the best and faster result that they want, it’s called 
PICOPLUSTM . Yes guys, Luminisce brings the first ever PICOPLUSTM platform in the country.

Dr.Kaycee Reyes said that she waited for 3 years for the improvement of this machine. She doesn’t want to settle for less so even though the machine cost a lot she made a decision to purchase it for her clients.

PICOPLUSTM is the latest in skin laser technology that introduces a faster, better, and safer way to remove scars, tattoos, acne marks, and even melasma. It sets itself apart from traditional lasers as it can deliver energy in a fraction of a second! This speed allows fewer treatments with less downtime.

I had the chance to try it. They targeted the scar on my forehead and pores. The scar on my forehead was because of the chickenpox that I got when I was young. The visible pores are because of laziness and negligence in taking care of my skin. 

What I noticed after the treatment was that my scar on the forehead got smaller and not that deep anymore. I guess after 2 more treatments it will be totally gone.

PICOPLUSTM 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 most advanced Nd:YAG laser to date. Nd:YAG stands for Neodymium: yttrium-alumunium-garnet, and is a crystal used as a laser medium. The Nd:YAG laser is non-ablative, which means that it can heat tissue without destroying it. It can treat a wide range of skin problems such as spider veins, age spots, freckles, dark spots, and more. Compared to the current Q-switched Nd:YAG nanosecond pulse lasers that have been used for decades, the PICOPLUSTM works in high power, quick, and short 450 picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses, as longer pulse durations mean a higher risk of damaging the surrounding tissue and less efficacy in treatment. With short pulses in high energy, the pigment is destroyed into smaller pieces, making elimination faster, producing more visible results in every treatment, and allows for shorter sessions overall. While current lasers deliver results as well, it is still limiting in terms of color density, side effects, lack of power, and pain tolerance for the patient.

With the efficacy and precision of the picosecond laser, PICOPLUSTMstill stands out from the rest as it produces the highest energy (1.8GW) compared to other picosecond lasers. Moreover, it has mastered Asian skin like never before, when previous models only allowed treatment for lighter skin types. Its versatility, offering 4 wavelengths, means that it can achieve far better results as each treatment may be customized depending on the patient’s skin condition. Its effectivity, precision, and reliability make it an exceptional treatment option that meets patient expectations with guaranteed results.

Luminisce has branches in Bonifacio Global City (where the PICOPLUS laser is available at the moment), Podium, and soon in Alabang.
