How Pico Laser Removes Pigmentation
Lutronic’s PicoPlus Pico laser is a Picosecond Laser, which is more effective and safer than traditional lasers.
Pico Laser is a non-ablative pigment laser that works in ultra-short 450 picosecond laser pulses instead of nanosecond pulses in a Q-Switched Nd:Yag Laser (100x shorter), which means less photo-thermal effect (less heat).
A pico laser also has higher photo-acoustic effect (more energy), which means that a picosecond laser shatters pigmentation into smaller fragments which are more easily removed by the body’s immune system.
Pico Laser’s Difference
Due to the ultra-short pulse duration and high power of the Pico Laser, it breaks down pigmentation into a much smaller fragments compared to a Q-Switched Laser.
These pigment fragments are cleared faster with fewer number of treatment sessions.
Lutronic’s PicoPlus laser can deliver up to 1.8GW of power, making it one of the most powerful picosecond lasers.
This gives Dr Boey the ability to remove stubborn pigmentation that cannot be removed using other traditional pigment lasers.
Pico Plus Laser Reviews & Results
1. Stellar Performance
Lutronic PicoPlus is a US FDA approved, Korean-tested picosecond laser that generates the one of the highest peak power (1.8GW) in its class of 450 picosecond lasers.
This ensures faster results with fewer treatment sessions.
2. Designed for Stubborn Pigmentation Removal in Asian Skin
Unlike the first generation picosecond lasers which were originally designed for tattoo removal in Caucasian skin (lighter skin types), Lutronic’s PicoPlus was designed in Korea with the primary aim of Pigmentation Removal in Asian Skin.
Laser settings and protocols have been optimised for enhanced effectiveness and safety in darker skin types.
3. Legacy of Excellence
PicoPlus is produced by KOSDAQ-listed Lutronic Corporation – one of the leading medical laser producers in Korea, with global footprints in US and Europe.
PicoPlus’ stable laser beam profile comes from Lutronic’s long-standing track record in producing pigment lasers like Spectra XT (nano-second Q-switched Nd:YAG laser) and Pico 4+ (first generation picosecond laser).
PicoPlus is a culmination of more than 20 years of experience in producing reliable pigmentation lasers.
4. Four Picosecond Wavelengths for One Purpose – Flawless Skin
Lutronic PicoPlus has one of the most versatility amongst Pico lasers in treating stubborn pigmentation with 4 Picosecond wavelengths (532nm, 595nm, 660nm and 1064nm).
5. True pico laser – third party reviewed
Lutronic PicoPlus is amongst the few true picosecond lasers (450 picosecond) available in Singapore like Discovery Pico, PicoSure, and PicoWay.
Certain other lasers may be marketed as “Pico technology” but they are not true picosecond lasers. They may not deliver similar results as a genuine pico laser.

Most patients are able to tolerate Pico lasers sessions without much discomfort.
The Pico laser feels like tiny warm pricks on the skin.
Pico Laser treatment is very safe.
Some patients might experience a pinkish flush or mild itchiness after the laser, which goes away within a few hours.
You can return to work or daily activities immediately after the laser.
However, it is advised to stay avoid prolonged or intentional strong sun exposure for a week after the laser to avoid hyper-pigmentation.
For certain patients, some greying/browning/darkening of the existing pigmentation may be expected before it fades off.
This is normal and you shouldn’t be worried as it will fade off in time.
Depending on your skin condition and the type of pigmentation, the number of treatments can vary.
On average, about 5 – 10 treatments will be required for best results.
A few factors influence the outcome of the treatment; nature of pigmentation, skin type, skin health, hormones and sun exposure etc.
Individual results vary.
Most pigmentation, like tattoos, will not return after removal.
However, due to sun exposure, aging and hormonal changes (mostly in women), new pigmentation can develop.
It is important to apply sunscreen to prevent new pigmentation from forming.
Regular maintenance treatments with Pico Laser treatments will ensure long-lasting results.
