When patients visit Springhouse Dermatology for their initial consultation, they will first meet with Dr. Weishar regarding the areas they would like treating as well as to discuss their desired results. Patients will be asked to cleanse before the procedure begins to ensure the best results. Once protective eyewear is in place, Dr. Weishar will demonstrate the sensation of the laser on a test area of the skin before carrying on, making several passes with the laser. The process may take as little as 15 minutes, with the patients experiencing minor discomfort (often described as a rubber band snap against the skin). Following treatment, the patient will be provided with a cold compress to soothe any lasting discomfort.
PICO Genesis in Philadelphia is an effective form of treatment for patients of all skin types. The procedure is perfect for those with the following conditions and symptoms:
PICO Genesis provides patients with a brighter and more radiant complexion, returning the skin to its youthful state.
Though patients may occasionally experience redness and swelling immediately following the treatment, PICO Genesis is a ZERO downtime procedure. You can expect to return to your daily routine immediately following a session without concerns of excessive sun-exposure or healing time. In many cases, patients will begin to see the transformative improvements before they even leave the office! Results can appear after just one treatment. However, final results are typically visible in 2-4 weeks. Some patients may require a series of treatments to achieve the desired outcome. Some patients have seen quicker results in improvement for acne scars with combining Fraxel and Pico Genesis.
