The New PiQo4 Laser Is To Treat Hyperpigmentation for All Skin Tone

A new laser treatment has arrived in town. The PiQo4 laser, which was unveiled earlier this month at the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual meeting in San Diego, is raising the bar for skin-care technology.

For laser newcomers, the prospect of shooting your skin with something straight out of a Star Wars film may seem frightening, but lasers are used to treat a variety of skin concerns, most notably those associated with hyperpigmentation, such as melasma.

How Laser Works?

On a fundamental level, laser treatments, which target the skin with high-energy light beams, work in two ways:

  • Lasers can shatter pigment deposits beneath the skin in cases of deeper pigmentation, such as melasma or tattoos.

  • For surface-level treatment, the laser creates a controlled wound by punching microscopic holes in the skin. As the skin heals from this controlled injury, it does so in a more natural and aesthetic manner.

What Is PiQo4 Laser?

The PiQo4 is revolutionary for a number of reasons. To begin, it has an extremely high energy output (it is the most powerful picosecond laser on the market), which results in faster results. According to Lumenis, the manufacturer of the PiQo4, the laser can remove pigment in 40% less time. Additionally, the laser’s rapidity is enhanced by the relatively large treatment area it can handle. The largest spot size of PiQo4 is 15.5 millimeters. (For context, that’s nearly four times the size of anything currently available.) This makes the laser particularly well-suited for treating larger pigmentation problems, such as a scar or birthmark that has taken up a significant amount of space.

However, the PiQo4 laser is most notable for its use of four distinct wavelengths of light. At the moment, not all lasers are suitable for darker skin tones, but the new laser is.
