Picoway® is a laser solution designed for benign skin pigmentations, such as Café-Au-Lait, Nevus of Ota, age spots, lentigines, freckles, and more. This innovative technology uses picosecond (trillionths of a second) pulses to break down skin pigment into the smallest of particles. These ultra-short pulses soften pigmented lesions, dark spots, wrinkles, and acne scars and also are suitable for tattoo removal.
This skin rejuvenation treatment can transform your skin into a clean, clear complexion by using a photoacoustic effect, which penetrates the top layer of skin. Because it doesn’t heat the skin, our patients experience little to no downtime after treatment.
PicoWay® uses various laser handpieces to achieve optimal results. PicoWay Resolve uses a specific laser handpiece that splits the main laser beam into smaller, identical beams for the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles.
Other treatments that work to resolve these issues experience many challenges that the PicoWay® does not, such as not being suitable for all skin types, requiring multiple sessions, as well as requiring downtime and recovery.
These limitations are why Limelight MedSpa is proud to offer PicoWay® Resolve laser skin treatment to patients with skin pigmentation issues and other skin concerns.

Spots from hyperpigmentation reveal themselves in many forms. They are often the result of age-related influences or sun exposure. While over-the-counter anti-aging treatments, like lotions and creams have some effectiveness in reducing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, they take several months to show results and may irritate your skin in the process. PicoWay™ Resolve delivers quick and effective results with convenience and without pain.
Suitable for All Skin Types
PicoWay Resolve uses a breakthrough technology to remove unwanted pigment issues, rejuvenate skin tone, and revitalize aging skin. Its advanced, holographic-fractional handpiece distributes targeted laser energy into the skin to resolve wrinkles, smooth skin texture, and deliver an even skin tone. These results occur without any disruption to adjacent skin.
PicoWay Resolve treatments are easy to fit into your busy lifestyle. Treatment sessions are typically less than 30 minutes, and after treatment, you can resume your normal activities. Many of our patients schedule these treatments during their lunch break.
Also, many patients will see visible results after one session. For more severe cases, multiple sessions may be necessary.
PicoWay Resolve Benefits
This advanced laser skin treatment encourages collagen regeneration, which is your body’s mechanism to support and heal your skin. With more collagen, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines will diminish. Other benefits include:
- Optimal results in fewer sessions
- Less heat meaning less discomfort
- The fractional approach means easy recovery
- Suitable for all skin types
After Treatment Instructions
Here are some steps we recommend after treatment:
- Apply cold compresses to reduce inflammation and cool your skin. We may recommend a topical ointment for comfort and additional treatment
- Avoid scrubbing the skin for a few days as this may cause skin irritation.
- Darker spots may fall off or peel away. This effect is a normal consequence of the treatment but feel free to call us if you have concerns.
- Some patients experience a temporary change in tone, which will resolve to normal pigmentation and color.
Results Come Fast
Because it delivers an ultra-fast concentrated high-power energy, PicoWay will destroy even the tiniest pigment particles, aiding the body to dispose of excessive pigmentation naturally.
Why Fractional is Key
A fractional treatment is a procedure that affects only a part or fraction of the skin, leaving the adjacent healthy skin alone to promote quick healing.
Candidates who are best suited for PicoWay Resolve need help resolving:
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Acne Scars
