One Doc recently unveiled their newly acquired Pico laser machines, the PICOCARE 450 from WONTECH. A South Korean company, WONTECH specializes in laser and aesthetic devices. The unveiling was conducted at One Doc’s third-anniversary celebration.
The PICOCARE 450 machine improves from the other machines (which were more commonly marketed as non-ablative laser machines) in the market. As the Pico machine uses picoseconds to inject heat into the underlying skin. The doctors in One Doc stated that there is no downtime, which means the client is able to go to work or perform any other daily routine after the treatment.
Dr Michael Ong, One Doc Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, stated that the speed in which the Pico laser is able to go inside the skin reduces the unwanted residual that may be left behind by other less effective machines. He also cautioned that ladies should wear sunblock after the treatment as pigmentation could return. Doctor Terrance Teoh, Executive Director and Co-Founder, believes the Pico machines is good for pigmentation, although it will require a few sessions to remove the unwanted spots and continuous sessions to maintain it.
WONTECH high executives were in town to promote the Pico laser. As many are curious with what is the latest trend in South Korea, one question the Korean visitors were asked is the current trend in Korea for skin pigmentation and the reply is that chemical peeling is very hot in Korea at the moment.
