Dream Spa Medical - Treatments To Get Rid of Sun and Age Spots in Canton, MA

Summer has passed and winter is on the way. Do you now find yourself with sun spots? Now is the time for sun spot removal!

Wake up radiant and confident with PICO Genesis™, a 2-in-1 laser procedure that returns balance, clearance, and radiance to your skin, by helping you look your very best - naturally.

PICO Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of unwanted freckles, sun spots, and age spots- gently, predictably, and quickly. PICO Genesis treatments will make your skin appear lighter, brighter, and more even; all in just a series of two to three treatments.

FAQs

How does the PICO Genesis treatment work?

Everyone's skin contains a substance called melanin. It's what gives our skin its color. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance + clearance + radiance to your skin.

How many treatments are required?

A series of two to three PICO Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve an optimal outcome, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Your PICO Genesis provider will discuss a treatment plan during your consultation.

What areas can be treated?

PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation.

What can I expect during a PICO Genesis treatment, and what does it feel like?

Before treatment, your provider will clean the area. You will feel the tip of the laser device touch your skin. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, but if you do, your treatment provider may apply a topical anesthetic. Immediately after treatment, you may apply cold air or an ice pack for a short time. You should keep the treated areas out of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection. Your PICO Genesis provider may recommend additional follow-up care.

What are the possible side effects?

Most patients experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve in several hours. Over the course of a few days, the treated sun spots and freckles will become darker and flake off as they heal, revealing a new, even complexion.

Is there any downtime associated with the treatment?

Although you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment, you can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment.
