Vancouver & Portland Cosmetic Surgeons and Spa

You have a new, pain-free alternative to treat pigmentation issues on your face, including brown spots, sun-damaged skin, or melasma. Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery’s new PICO Genesis™ laser, which we use effectively in tattoo removal, helps with these skin texture issues.

Traditional lasers have not been as effective in treating the pesky hormone-induced melasma.  But when paired with a hydroquinone product, the PICO Genesis™ treatment can bring your skin back to an even tone.  The laser treatment also helps improve texture, rejuvenates the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines.

This no-downtime (and pain free, believe it or not) procedure uses a special picosecond setting to rapidly direct low energy pulses of light at the skin, targeting both pigmentation and superficial texture concerns.

The treatment feels similar to Laser Genesis, an application on our vascular laser that we have used for nearly 15 years to treat redness and rosacea.
