The PicoLO Premium laser works to address common skin concerns including pigmentation issues, sun damage, and discoloration. PicoLO is a safe and comfortable process which also renews texture and tone, making it a great all-around rejuvenating option.
What is the PicoLO Premium Laser?
PicoLO Premium is our newest laser skin rejuvenation treatment, and it’s packed with innovation. This treatment is unique in that it allows our doctors to precisely target each layer of the skin, alleviating concerns such as unwanted pigment, melasma, and sun damage with ease.
Using ultra-short pulses of laser light (picosecond pulses) to the top layers of your skin, we are able to target pigmentation and skin texture without heating and damaging the skin, resulting in less pain and quicker healing than other laser skin treatments.
By triggering the skin’s natural healing process, your body produces new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother skin texture and less pigmentation as your skin heals.

The PicoLO laser works to achieve a more balanced complexion, improving skin’s tone and texture with a few treatments.
Pico toning is used to treat:
- Dark spots and pigmentation
- Lentigines and sun spots

Washington, D.C. dermatologists Dr. Isaac and Dr. Yanes or a trained member of their staff will have a consultation with you prior to your treatment to assess your skin, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if you are a good candidate for the PicoLO Premium laser treatment.
