BRISBANE, Calif., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CUTERA, a leading provider of laser, light and other energy-based aesthetic systems for practitioners worldwide, announced today the launch of PICO Genesis™, an innovative procedure that introduces a new approach for the treatment of pigmentary skin concerns using the enlighten™ picosecond laser system.
"CUTERA has a recognized history of introducing proven technology and then repurposing it to benefit our customers and their patients," says Ron Santilli, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer for CUTERA. "We recognize that pigmentary conditions are a leading aesthetic concern for our market and we're excited to launch a solution for this condition to physicians' practices nationwide while providing additional functionality to our enlighten system."
A new, non-thermal way to treat pigmentary concerns, PICO Genesis™ uses ultra-short laser pulses that deliver a shockwave effect to selectively shatter the pigment and cause disruption and remodeling to the upper dermis resulting in a brighter, more uniform complexion. Practitioners using this new treatment report a dramatic improvement in the reduction of pigmentation as well as an overall brilliance to their patient's complexion in as few as two treatments. PICO Genesis™ takes roughly 20 minutes from start to finish, is pain free and requires virtually no downtime.
"PICO Genesis™ advances our options to efficiently treat common pigmentary concerns and we have had very positive outcomes with more challenging cases such as low contrast lentigines or lighter brown spots," says Dr. Jeremy Green, board-certified Miami based cosmetic dermatologist and Clinical Investigator for PICO Genesis™. "In addition to the skin tone improvements, its visibly clear that there is also something special happening to the overall skin quality – the skin looks brighter and more youthful even following one treatment. PICO Genesis is a game changer for me especially when treating my darker skinned patients."
