Pico Genesis FX Laser
PICO Genesis FX is a new addition to Cutera’s enlighten platform that uses fractionated picosecond laser pulses delivered with a novel Micro Lens Array (MLA) handpiece for the treatment of acne scarring and textural improvements. PICO Genesis FX delivers fractionated, high-energy picosecond pulses to induce non-thermal optical breakdown within the dermis to promote collagen remodeling and elastin production2 while leaving the epidermis unharmed. In a pilot study conducted to evaluate the efficacy of the PICO Genesis FX procedure in the treatment of moderate to severe acne scars, 97.4% of the participants showed visible improvement in acne scars after a series of treatments, with a participant satisfaction of 80%. In a separate pilot study, PICO Genesis FX was also effective in improving skin texture and quality, with improvements in radiance, smoothness, pigmentation, pore size, and wrinkles. Participant satisfaction in this study was also high, with 91% interested in repeating the treatment and 81% showing improvement in wrinkles after 6 or fewer treatments. Both pilot studies demonstrated not only the efficacy but also the safety and minimum downtime associated with the PICO Genesis FX procedure.
