The Lumenis® PiQo4 for Skin Pigmentation

The Lumenis PiQo4 is a powerful tool that addresses skin pigmentation, along with a range of other skin conditions. The device covers nearly four times more skin surface area than other systems, which makes treatment faster.

The PiQo4 laser has four different wavelengths, which is why it’s also so effective at removing colored tattoos. It’s also an excellent option for removing pigmentation problems caused by lentigines, melasma, and certain birthmarks.

    Skin and Pigment Disorders Q & A

    Does PiQo4 laser hurt?

    During treatment, the laser makes loud popping sounds as it makes contact with the skin. As the laser pulses make contact, it may feel like a snap of a rubber band. After treatment, the sunburn-like sensation may persist. Although PiQo4 is not completely painless, most patients find it very tolerable.

     

    What is skin pigmentation?

    Pigment is the reason why your skin has its particular color. Skin cells create melanin, a kind of pigment. Some people have more melanin than others, giving their skin a darker hue.

    When your melanin-producing cells are unhealthy or become damaged, they may produce different levels of pigment. That can create patches of skin that are lighter or darker than the rest.

    These are some common causes of skin pigmentation:

    • Addison’s disease
    • Vitiligo
    • Pregnancy
    • Sun damage
    • Melasma

    Skin pigmentation can look different from one person to the next. Some men and women experience small areas of darkened skin, similar to large freckles. Others have large patches of discoloration on their foreheads, cheeks, hands, or other areas of their body.

     

    Is laser good for pigmentation?

    Laser treatment is one of the most advanced treatments for removing unwanted pigmentation on the skin such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles. … For deep pigmentation such as melasma, ActiveFX Laser Resurfacing is the skin pigmentation treatment of choice which can remove up to 80% of melanin in one treatment.

     

    How many treatments will I need?

    Depending on the type of pigmentation being treated, clients will need between 2-6 treatments. The effectiveness of the treatment will be determined by the type, color, and depth of the pigmentation along with the condition of the skin.

     

    Laser Procedure Post Care

     

    The best way to minimize the risks of any procedure is to follow your post-treatment care. Please be sure to consult with your technician if you have any questions on any item listed or any other concerns you may have.

    Apply SPF broad-spectrum UVA/UVB 30 or higher,15 minutes before going outside.

    A histamine blocker (such as Benadryl) may be taken the night of the procedure to help with swelling (if associated with itching.)

    Avoid heat which includes exercise, jacuzzi, or any other activities that would heat up the skin for 24 hours.

    Avoid any direct sunlight or tanning beds for 7-10 days.

    Avoid Retin-A for 72 hours.

    Avoid any other laser treatments or chemical procedures on the treated area for 2 weeks post-treatment.

    Cleanse using a gentle facial cleanser.  Do not scrub, use hot water or a washcloth.

    Do not wax for 2 weeks after treatment.

    Keep skin hydrated.

    No scrubs, facial brushes, retinol, or any exfoliating agents for 7 days after treatment.

    It is normal for the treated area to feel like sunburn during this time.

    You may experience slight redness that will lighten within 24 to 48 hours.

    Tylenol is recommended for post-treatment discomfort.

    If you experience any side effects such as hypo or hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reaction, or blistering call or come in for instruction or treatment.
