What Is Resolve?

PicoWay Resolve is an advanced fractional laser treatment that utilizes ultra-short, picosecond pulses to address various skin concerns with exceptional precision. Unlike traditional lasers, PicoWay Resolve delivers energy in incredibly fast bursts, minimizing heat damage and allowing for a more comfortable treatment experience with reduced downtime. This technology effectively targets pigmented particles within the tissue, such as dark spots and acne scars, while simultaneously stimulating collagen production to improve skin texture and elasticity. In addition to being suitable for all skin types, PicoWay Resolve is renowned for achieving smoother, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin through a series of quick, virtually painless sessions.
