PICO Genesis Laser
PICO Genesis laser – Skin rejuvenation treatment at MédIME
We are glad to introduce at MédIME the new PICO Genesis laser technology for brown spots removal, brighter skin complexion and improved texture with new collagen production. This technology is safe and effective in all skin colors and require no downtime.
How does PICO Genesis work?
PICO Genesis introduces a new approach for skin repair, collagen production and pigment removal using ultra-short picosecond pulses. The ultra-short pulse laser beam, explains Dr. Jean-François Tremblay, creates photomechanical waves that stimulate pigment removal and skin repair without burning the skin. The procedure only takes a few minutes to perform and is completely pain free.
Who are the best candidates for PICO Genesis skin rejuvenation?
PICO Genesis is best indicated for patients with stubborn brown spots and in need of a clearer skin complexion or patients who want firmer and smoother skin. This gentle and yet powerful treatment is also indicated for regular maintenance skin repair and aging prevention.

How many treatment sessions are required? How long do results last? How often should one repeat PICO Genesis?
Patients require on average a series of 3 sessions scheduled one week apart for full PICO Genesis revitalization. Full skin repair and pigment removal results appear progressively during the weeks following the treatment. Results are long lasting better maintained with an appropriate daily skincare routine including UVA/UVB sun protection. PICO Genesis revitalization should be repeated once a year for maintenance and aging prevention or as need be.
Can PICO Genesis laser rejuvenation be combined with other treatments?
PICO Genesis laser rejuvenation is routinely combined with Neuromodulator injection treatments (Botox, Dysport), as well as, Hyaluronic acid injection treatments (Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal) to enhance and complete overall results.
