What does PicoToning do?

PicoToning refers to how lasers deliver energy, specifically in ultra-short bursts of picosecond -trillio fractions of a second. By taking a laser pulse and splitting it into hundreds of smaller microspheres, the picosecond laser is able to heat up small sections of skin during the procedure, allowing the rest of the skin to quickly heal in small spots. there. Most patients only experience a pink discoloration a few hours after each treatment and can go about their daily activities without interruption. With a series of monthly treatments, patients notice significant improvement in the tone and texture of their skin. PicoToning lightens skin tone and improves brown spots by breaking down melanin pigment in the skin. At the same time, the treatment improves wrinkles and scars by stimulating collagen production. With its gentle properties, PicoToning is safe for most skin types and can be the perfect choice for those looking to brighten and tighten skin.
