Purchased PicoLO for skin rejuvenation, PicoLO, picosecond laser that appears LIOB apparently – Dr. Gi Hong Kim, plastic surgeon, from Newness Clinic-
You’ve received demos several picosecond laser systems. What’s your general review on them?
I checked their overall performances for one week every two weeks. I checked almost every picosecond laser system in the market. I assessed performances of six picosecond laser systems for rejuvenation. Long Pulsed lasers or toning lasers are similar, but each picosecond laser has different characteristics. If the former were compared to a family, it feels like the latter were other ethnic groups, such as the African, the Caucasian, and the Chinese. Their beam patterns were different. I evaluated for rejuvenation because it was hard to evaluate effectiveness on pigmentation like melasma by short period demonstration. Pigmentation like melasma should be checked for a long period. Some picosecond lasers resulted in slightly out-of-balance skin. It was a phenomenon that the face became darker not melasma.
Why did you choose PicoLO among picosecond laser systems?
Overall performance was good. Laser beams of other lasers could not penetrate in the skin deeply, but PicoLO could do it.
I cannot see if the laser goes deep enough to cause LIOB, but if you irradiate it by adjusting the focus lens, you can be sure that LIOBs are created in the skin. In fact, I think I will be able to confirm by tissue biopsy, and I will try to do it someday. Clinically, PicoLO made skin bright and its rejuvenation effect was good.
Did you watch LIOBs on Crystal Experiment video?
Yes, and I also tried it. When I irradiated the laser beam on the crystal having no chromophores, a cloud-like shape was created. I can see that other systems go through from above. However, even though picoLO irradiates many times, it was not irradiated the upper layer of the epidermis. However, I do not know what will happen in the skin because there is no chromophore in crystal. I think that focus length could be shorter if there is chromophore. If focus fits in 11mm, it would be 5mm in tissue where chromophores are located.
You have several systems for treating rejuvenation. What made you purchase PicoLO for rejuvenation, too?
Gentle Max PRO (Long Pulsed Laser) is for remodeling collagen, and PicoLO physically makes tissues thicker through LIOBs, so those have different effects. Clinically, the ways they make face bright are different. It seems while Gentle Max PRO makes a shiny face, PicoLO makes a deep glowing face. They have different colors in making face brighter. It is hard to express by words, but combination of two systems makes a better result. So, I try to work hard.
Have you thought about how treatment program you operate in combination with existing systems?
I think to combine PicoLO with Gentle Max PRO and pneumatic system. I should take more medical charge because of using picosecond laser system, so I consider how to manage treatment program. I consider charging extra medical fees by adding rejuvenation treatment, so I am planning a treatment program.
How about pigmentation?
I applied PicoLO to melasma, and I try to generate mild LIOBs deeply. I consider treating melasma by using LIOBs. Melasma could be improved by only treating dermis and you do not have to treat epidermis. When the bottom is treated and improved, the pigment covering the top is often improved automatically.
Do you have any suggestions to improve PicoLO?
I hope that the output power is a little lower. Output power from specification and that from biological effect must be different. Output power is too strong when treating epidermis. I say that a low output power is good means that there is no downtime. The main point is that there is no downtime when treating by PicoLO because existing treatment does not generate downtime, but If you get more downtime while receiving more money, you will have trouble.
