LASER REJUVENATION (NON-ABLATIVE WITH PICOSECOND LASER)
PICO STAR Asclepion introduces a new era of picosecond lasers for skin rejuvenation, pigmentation treatment and tattoo removal ranging from sky blue to red.
Picosecond laser is an innovative equipment in hardware cosmetology that produces ultrashort pulses with ultra-high peak power. Picosecond lasers have only recently begun to appear on the market.
Asclepion’s PICO STAR is FDA approved and has registration certificate of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus.

What is the exclusivity of picosecond laser technology and specifically PICO STAR? What are its key advantages over its predecessors?
«PICO STAR»: THE FOUNDER OF A NEW LASER ERA
The idea of creating a picosecond laser was to remove tattoos (black and colored, which are poorly removed by classical lasers) and permanent makeup.
When removing tattoos, permanent makeup and pigment from the skin, physicians and medical technology engineers noted interesting accompanying aesthetic results that were noticeable from exposure to a picosecond laser:
- Smoothing pigment spots (lintigo, melasma);
- Smoothing superficial and deep wrinkles;
- Removal of cicatricial changes in the skin, post-acne scars;
- Alignment of skin tone and relief;
- Increase the tone, firmness and elasticity of the skin.
According to this brief description of the equipment, the patient can clearly conclude that all systems in laser cosmetology are aimed at solving the above problems, but not everything is so clear.
Laser rejuvenation is a rather serious procedure in cosmetology. Almost all impacts include a rehabilitation period. Among such techniques (fractional rejuvenation, mass lifting, photorejuvenation, RF-lifting, etc.). The rehabilitation period can last from 3 days to 6 weeks, but always entails some restrictions and discomfort. With picosecond laser PICO STAR manufactured by Asclepion, a new reality has come – laser rejuvenation without rehabilitation and seasonal restrictions!
It has been scientifically proven that the use of a picosecond laser is completely atraumatic – after skin treatment, only slight redness is observed, which disappears on its own after 24 hours.
PICO STAR can be used safely even in hot summers. The advantage is that the laser can be used for all skin phototypes from I to VI.
HOW DOES A PICOSECOND LASER WORK?
Asclepion PICO STAR is a type of photoacoustic laser. It generates ultra-short pulses (one trillionth of a second).
The wavelength is from 532 nm to 1064 nm. This allows the doctor to distribute the laser energy at different depths and the required concentration.
The fundamental difference between rejuvenation with a picosecond laser and ablative/fractional resurfacing on CO2 is that PICO STAR pulses are absorbed by cells almost instantly. Skin cells do not have time to warm up. They quickly expand and break up into tiny particles.
This kind of process is reduced to crushing into such small particles that are able to be excreted from the body by phagocytes.
In other words, nanosecond lasers crush these particles into rocks, and picosecond lasers turn rock into dust.
«We crush the rock not into stones, but into dust».
This action of the laser due to short pulses causes a powerful stimulation of cellular metabolism and other biochemical reactions in the dermal structures, leading to rejuvenation and firming of the skin.
The process of tissue metabolism can take up to 3-4 months. The effect will manifest itself in the future and will please the patient.
Asclepion’s PICO STAR picosecond laser works differently than Alma Q, Harmony XL PRO and other lasers from other manufacturers Lumenis M22, Candela and others. It does not cause injury to the cells of the dermis and epidermis, but only gives them a signal of injury / “potential danger”. This signal activates the process of cell matrix reorganization without direct heating. Healthy skin cells are rapidly renewed and divided, which gives the effect of rejuvenation.
The picosecond laser is a “cold effect”. This laser does not require anesthesia.
KEY ADVANTAGE OF THE PICOSECOND LASER
The most important advantage of a picosecond laser is the speed at which the desired effect occurs. Everyone knows that women are ready to endure a lot of suffering in the name of youth and beauty. When contacting a doctor, the minimum number of patients thinks about the rehabilitation period. Quite often, the arguments in favor of the lack of rehabilitation are not as convincing as the desire for a striking result.
It is much more important for the patient how long it takes to see the result of the procedure.
«The result of the procedure is the basis of patient confidence».
REJUVENATION WITH THE PICO STAR PICOSECOND LASER GIVES INSTANT RESULTS.
The patient sees pleasant changes with the skin immediately, but after the procedure they have a cumulative effect. It is most significant on the tenth day after the session and intensifies over the next 4 months. We have already noted that collagen builds up to 4 months.
This fact is confirmed by 30 scientific reports by scientists from around the world.
Picosecond laser PICO STAR manufactured by Asclepion is distinguished by its “cold” effect, so procedures with its use can be repeated quite often – 1 time in 2 weeks.
You can significantly rejuvenate the skin in 1-1.5 months in order to enjoy excellent results for several years.
The proven safety of Asclepion’s PICO STAR allows it to be used even when removing scars in children.
Due to the gentle effect on the skin, the procedures are easily tolerated by patients. It is even pleasant according to patients’ reviews – only a pleasant tingling and warmth.
Contraindications for laser rejuvenation with a picosecond laser:
- Chronic somatic pathologies in the acute stage;
- Blood diseases (leukemia, leukopenia, anemia, hemophilia);
- Viral diseases;
- Benign and malignant tumors;
- The period of pregnancy and lactation.
Picosecond lasers will revolutionize in a decade. Laser technologies for the correction of appearance with a systematic approach will replace full-fledged surgical interventions. We will witness the long-awaited era of beautiful, young, self-satisfied people.
