What is PicoWay®?
PicoWay by Candela is an FDA-approved laser therapy system that harnesses the power of high-powered lasers delivered within a single picosecond (one trillionth of a second). The short duration of the beam allows the target cells and pigments to be vaporized without heating your skin and causing superficial damage that requires downtime for recovery.
PicoWay® Resolve for Scars, Wrinkles, and Fine Lines
Some of the most telltale signs of aging are wrinkles and fine lines that appear with time, as the collagen and elastin in your facial skin diminish. Traditional laser therapies are among the most effective nonsurgical remedies to restore the facial skin but involve some downtime to recover. PicoWay solves this problem with high-powered laser bursts of very short duration that break up scar tissue and create pockets within the skin structure that stimulate new collagen production without damaging the surface. With the PicoWay laser treatment at Polaris Aesthetics, you can smooth wrinkles and fine lines while reducing the appearance of scars – all with virtually no pain or downtime!
The Benefits of PicoWay® Resolve Laser Skin Treatment
PicoWay Resolve works differently because it uses extremely targeted and extremely short laser pulses (measured in picoseconds, or trillionths of a second). These pulses can shatter unwanted pigment into much smaller particles than traditional lasers can. PicoWay Resolve also emits less heat energy than traditional lasers, so less energy transfers to the skin.
- You can see improvement in fewer treatments.
- Less heat means less discomfort in treatment.
- The targeted approach means you have no lengthy recovery.
While PicoWay Resolve is at work, it is encouraging the production of collagen. This is your body’s rejuvenating mechanism for skin. As collagen is created, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PicoWay works on all skin types. If you have freckles, birthmarks, age spots, melasma, or other skin irregularities that are adding years to your appearance and taking away from the aesthetics of your skin, you may be a good candidate.

What You Can Expect with PicoWay® Resolve
The number of PicoWay Resolve laser skin treatments you have depends on your needs and goals. Polaris Aesthetics can treat some concerns in a single session, while others may require several visits. Clients generally tell us that PicoWay Resolve causes only minimal discomfort, and because it is more efficient than some other technologies, treatment can be over sooner. In the procedure:
- Your treatment provider applies the PicoWay Resolve laser light to the targeted area.
- Ultra-short pulses of light break up unwanted pigment. They also stimulate collagen production.
- The procedure lasts about 20 minutes. Immediately afterward, you can return to normal activities, which makes PicoWay Resolve laser skin treatment great for professionals who need work-day appointments.
