Under the Singapore Medical Council guidelines, skin pigmentation treatments involving lasers have to be administered by certified doctors in a medical clinic.
Our experienced doctors have undergone rigorous training, and provide personalised treatments using US-FDA approved laser equipments.
Discovery Pico Laser
Discovery Pico Laser is a highly efficacious laser technology for the treatment of pigmentation, blemishes, acne scars and large pores, while stimulating collagen production for skin rejuvenation.
Pico Laser works on a specific wavelength to target the pigmentation and problem areas selectively, leaving the surrounding areas undamaged. With the ultrashort picosecond pulse duration, the laser stimulates laser-induced optical breakdown (LIOB) of the tissues in the epidermis layer safely without heat injury to the dermis.
Medical Hydra Rejuvenation Facial
Step 1: Skin is deeply cleanse and gently exfoliated
Step 2: Manual extraction to remove oil plug and clogged pores
Step 3: Apply hydrating ampoule that is rich in nutrients and nano-actives. This is coupled with deep dermal infusion through iontophoresis technology
Step 4: Specialist massage technique to lift, firm and penetrate active ingredients
Step 5: A customised mask to soothe the skin and restore natural defense barrier
HOW DOES PICO LASER WORK?
The light energy from the laser gets absorbed by the pigmented lesions. It vibrates and breaks up the particles into really thin “dust”, thus breaking up melanin in the pigmentation. Melanin is the compound that causes a pigmentation to appear darker than surrounding skin.
These smaller particles of melanin are recognised by the body as waste. As part of the body’s natural waste removal process, these melanin particles rise to the surface of the skin and gets eliminated.
Over a period of time and with multiple sessions of laser treatments, all the melanin particles will be broken up and naturally eliminated from the skin’s surface, leaving it clear, smooth and pigmentation-free.

One price, multiple different types of lasers included in one session.
As part of our commitment to patients, our doctors will customize the number of laser passes for every Discovery Pico laser session on your face. You could be getting multiple different types of laser to target different layers of the skin at no additional costs!

How do I pick the right Pico Laser?
The there several brands of Pico Lasers in the market. Some of the more common brands carried by aesthetic clinics in Singapore include – Discovery Pico, Pico Sure, Pico Way and Pico Care. Patients frequently ask which PICO laser is better?
The differences between the PICO laser machines are the technical details. Ultimately, the treatment outcome relies on multiple factors such as skin type, skin colour, types of pigmentation and the doctor’s skills, and the type of laser settings. At Privé, we customise every Discovery Pico laser session to ensure optimal treatment results for our patients.
