Breakthrough laser technology for creating clear skin free of irregular pigment from acne, birthmarks, scars, sun spots, age and more
Do imperfections in your skin pigmentation, birthmarks, spots or scars disrupt your natural beauty? PiQo4 is a breakthrough laser technology for creating clear skin free of irregular pigment issues caused due to acne, birthmarks, scars, sun damage, age, and more.
What is PiQo4?
How PiQo4 works
PiQo4 is a powerful and versatile system for the effective treatment of a wide range of skin pigmentation problems – from pigmented lesions such as birthmarks and lentigines to vascular lesions. Its versatile energy matrix, along with the large spot size, ensures effective shattering of pigment deposits with faster, more efficient treatment times. Featuring unsurpassed versatility, PiQo4 is ideally suited for treating general skin pigmentation, including toning through treatment of pigmented lesions, resurfacing, and whitening.
Clinical studies have shown that the optimal method for shattering pigment particles is to treat them with both nano and picosecond laser pulses. PiQo4 uses pico and nano, high energy, deep reach and four wavelengths to shatter pigment. This photoacoustic laser high-energy beam with deep reach is drawn to the pigment in order to disperse it. The laser treats the pigment in both upper and lower layers of skin. The optimal combination of the pico and nano energies results in better outcomes as compared to solely using either of the technologies.
PiQo4 laser treatments only require short sessions and are faster than other treatments. The PiQo4 laser system offers up to 15 spot sizes, from 2 mm to 15.5 mm. The 15 mm spot is the largest spot size available across the industry, and is around four times bigger in size than the closest competitor. The larger spot sizes allow for maintaining the depth of laser penetration into the dermis. It helps in better dispersal of the embedded particles.
The PiQo4 is also used to remove tattoos. Tattoo removal through PiQo4 requires 40% fewer treatments compared to other laser systems. The PiQo4 laser allows you to treat a wide range of tattoo colors on different skin types. Each ink pigment can absorb a specific wavelength, and the PiQo4 system offers four wavelengths: 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm and 585nm. These wavelengths are effective on nine of the most frequently used inks for tattoos.
What we love about PiQo4
PiQo4 has high power output and the largest spot size on the market, which can effectively reach both shallow and deep pigments for a remarkably better result than previous technologies – even skin results from the most severe cases of melasma, acne scars, vascular lesions, birthmarks and moles, making it the most advanced laser technology for removal of excess pigmentation. This is the only laser on the market suited for all skin tones, including darker skin tones which are traditionally more difficult to treat due to the high rate of rebound with post inflammatory hypopigmentation.
What to expect
Topical numbing cream can be used to eliminate any discomfort during the treatment. Immediately after treatment, you may see a whitish “frosting” over treated areas where pigmentation was darkest. The skin may be slightly swollen, accompanied by mild redness. The frosting, swelling and redness will resolve in a matter of hours. The small, dot size area may crust slightly as the body repairs itself. This will resolve naturally. Unlike the long recovery period of other fractional lasers, 6 to 8 hours after the PiQo4 laser treatment, only minimal redness may be noticed. The treatment does not break the skin and the area completely heals within 12 hours.
How many treatments?
Depending on the severity of discoloration, a recommendation of one or a series of treatments spaced weekly may be required for optimal results.

The result was so radical, I wish I had been able to do this long ago – it was easy and my skin is skin is amazingly clear.
