How Often Should You Get
Skin Revitalization Treatments

How Often Should You Get Skin Revitalization Treatments?

Skin revitalization entails more than just improving the appearance of the skin. It’s a treatment that can perfect the skin. We can use it to remove unwanted tattoos as well as different pigmentation issues on the skin. If you want to get your skin back after a tattoo or create a more uniform skin tone, we can help. At Princeton Aesthetics in Princeton Junction, NJ, we offer an effective treatment that meets the needs of patients with all different pigmentation concerns.

How Often Should You Get Skin Revitalization Treatments?

The total number of skin revitalization treatments you should schedule and when you should schedule them will vary based on your ultimate goals. Those seeking this treatment to remove an unwanted tattoo must follow a specific protocol recommended by one of our technicians in order to completely remove that tattoo.

Those who want to address discoloration and pigmentation issues on their skin may need fewer treatment sessions than those who want to remove a tattoo.

Designing Your Unique Treatment Plan

The best way to determine the number of treatments you should schedule to achieve your goals is by scheduling a consultation here at our office. Every patient is different, and even two patients who both want to remove tattoos will require a unique treatment plan based on the size, color, and location of that tattoo they want to remove.

An initial consultation will allow our experts to evaluate your area of concern in a comfortable in-person setting so that we can custom tailor a treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Our Skin Revitalization Treatment

At Princeton Aesthetics, we offer skin revitalization treatments with PICO Genesis. This innovative and effective laser device utilizes two wavelengths delivered in short pulses to transform and perfect the skin.

One of the benefits of this treatment is that it can help transform the skin by its photomechanical methods and remodel the deeper layers of the skin called the dermis without affecting the surrounding area in any negative ways. Additionally, you will achieve your desired result in fewer treatment sessions than you would were you to undergo treatment with other similar devices.

PICO Genesis

PICO Genesis is a laser treatment that uses picosecond lasers. Initially, picosecond lasers were specifically designed for tattoo removal. However, studies and trials revealed that this type of laser treatment could also improve the skin by addressing hyperpigmentation, creating a more uniform skin tone, and increasing the body’s collagen production.

PICO Genesis Lasers Versus Everything Else

Traditional laser treatments utilize heat energy to address skin discoloration. However, the thermal heat energy produced by those lasers has the potential to damage the surrounding tissue. These lasers can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which is the opposite effect you want, especially if you are trying to treat hyperpigmentation in the first place.

This laser is so effective because it won’t affect the surrounding skin, but it will help you reach your aesthetic goals in fewer treatments without any pain or discomfort. There is no thermal energy used during the treatment process, so this laser can effectively eradicate unwanted pigment without causing any adverse side effects or reactions.

What Does PICO Genesis Treat?

PICO Genesis provides us with an effective way to treat multiple skin imperfections and unwanted tattoos. Specifically, this treatment can help improve the appearance of the skin by breaking up excess pigment. It shatters the pigment in the skin into tiny particles that your body then eliminates as waste through the lymphatic system. In doing so, it can remove:

  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Melasma
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Hyperpigmentation

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients only need one or two treatments to achieve their desired results. Depending on your specific concern, the most you may need is five treatments. We typically schedule treatments with two weeks between each to help you reach your skincare and goals as quickly as possible.

Is It Safe?

PICO Genesis is one of if not the safest laser treatments because of the way that it utilizes quick laser pulses to address the skin and, in doing so, does not damage any surrounding tissue. Since it does not use the same thermal energy as most laser devices, you won’t have to be worried about any skin damage to the surrounding area post-treatment.

Additionally, you can rest assured that our technicians are fully trained in the PICO Genesis Treatment device and know how to utilize it to address your unique skin concerns.

When Will I See Results?

You will see a change in your unwanted skin pigment within one to two treatment sessions.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

There Are No Side Effects

When you schedule one of our skin revitalization treatments with PICO Genesis, you won’t have to worry about any side effects or adverse reactions. Instead, you will achieve noticeable results. If you want to improve your skin and address an unwanted tattoo or another form of skin pigmentation or a skin irregularity, this laser treatment is the perfect option to do so.

There Are No Side Effects

Whether you want to address unwanted pigmented lesions, hyperpigmentation, or an unwanted tattoo, you won’t have to spend a significant amount of time at our office for treatment sessions. Each treatment session takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and then you can resume your normal daily activities knowing that you are well on your way to transforming your skin.

You Will Achieve Dramatic Results

Once you undergo this treatment, you won’t have to carefully study your skin in the mirror to see if it actually worked. You will see changes in your tattoo, unwanted pigmented spots, or skin irregularities. Your skin will change over time, and you will be thrilled with how radiant and revitalized your skin looks.

It Can Be Used in Multiple Areas

Whether you want to treat skin irregularities and hyperpigmentation on your face or in other areas of the body, this specific laser can help address each of your cosmetic concerns. You can use it to treat multiple areas, both on the face and body, or one specific area. When you schedule your consultation, be sure to address each area of concern so that we can include it in your treatment plan and help you reach your skincare goals as quickly as possible.

There’s No Risk of Post-Treatment Inflammation

Many laser treatments require that you go into hiding in the days following your treatment. They make the skin look irritated, red, and inflamed. However, when you schedule a skin revitalization treatment with PICO Genesis, you won’t have to worry about inflammation or irritation. You will have a radiant post-treatment glow, and your results will continue to improve as you follow the recommended treatment protocol.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Another one of the benefits of PICO Genesis is that it can successfully treat all different skin types. Regardless of whether you have normal or more sensitive skin, you can safely schedule a treatment without worrying about how your skin will react. The best candidates for this treatment include patients who no longer want a tattoo on their bodies. Also, those with pigmented lesions that are affecting their confidence and their appearance make good treatment candidates.

The best candidates should be in good health and should be free of any bacterial infections or opened wounds in the planned treatment area. Additionally, women who are pregnant or nursing will not qualify for treatment until they are cleared by their primary care physician. This treatment makes a significant difference in the appearance of uneven skin, melasma, different forms of hyperpigmentation, and unwanted tattoos.

Investing in Your Skin

Once you take the step to eliminate that unwanted tattoo or skin lesion, you won’t regret it. This treatment allows you to invest in yourself, and not just in your appearance, but in your confidence. When you feel confident about your skin, you’ll feel more confident in general.
