Both treatments are both performed using the Cutera Enlighten 3 machine. The difference between Pico Genesis and PicoGen FX is they each target different levels of the skin to address different skin concerns.
Pico Genesis Is fantastic for reducing pigmentation and refining pores. It’s useful to treat sun damage, uneven skin tone to reveal a brighter more even appearance.
Gentle non-heating pulses of laser shatters area of pigment. Post treatment this pigment will start to fade.
PicoGEN FX targets skin at a deeper level. It’s fantastic for addressing age or scarring concerns like skin texture, loss of elastin, acne scarring as well as being effective on pigmentation.
We add a special end piece to the machine that turns it in to a fractional laser. PicoGEN FX is non-invasive – with little down time compared to more aggressive fractional lasers that have traditionally been on the market.
The fractional laser creates micro wounds in the upper layers of the skin to initiate a repair response – prompting collagen induction and renewal.
