PICO Laser has set a new standard for treatment of pigmentation, pores and scars.
The word “Pico” has recently gained a lot of traction as the new buzzword in aesthetic medicine, and has become one of the most requested for treatment in Malaysia
Picolaser is not a brand or name of a laser machine, but refers to a type of laser technology.
In essence, “Pico” in the word “Picolaser” refers to picosecond: ie: 1/1000 of a nanosecond or one trillionth of a second. Picolaser is a new generation of laser technology in which the laser is fired with a very short pulse duration – in picoseconds. This is in contrast to Q-switched lasers, in which laser beams are delivered in pulse durations of nanoseconds.
PicoLO is a technically advanced, truly picosecond pulsed Nd:YAG laser (1064 & 532nm) designed to efficaciously treat pigmented lesions as well as perform tattoo removal, scar correction and skin rejuvenation.
PicoLO’s ultra-short picosecond pulse effectively targets pigmentation while minimizing discomfort, pain, side effects and downtime. PicoLO’s large spot size allows faster and more efficient treatments with higher patient comfort.

Photomechanical Effect By Doe Fractional Laser Bam
LASEROPTEK’s patented DOE Fractional Technology has once again been implemented to provide the photomechanical effect, which is the mechanism by which the chromophores of lesions are fragmented and broken up following the application of short laser pulses that can quickly heat up the targeted chromophores, which is called thermal stress, as well as acoustic stress being achieved when laser pulse duration is less than the acoustic diffusion time. In addition, it makes collapse of the cavitation bubble to generate strong local mechanical forces within the dermis, so called as Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB).
PicoLO’s DOE Fractional Laser Beam can safely generate optical breakdown in tissue, leading to an enhanced inflammatory healing process resulting in production of collagen and elastin.
