[REVIEW] Enlighten + PicoSure = Two Is Better Than One

Earlier this year, I was invited to try out the PicoSure laser at Dr Joseph Yang’s Aesthetics and Medical Clinic in Wisma Atria. If you had read my earlier review on PicoSure laser, you would have known by now that it is one of the latest generation of aesthetic laser which administers laser pulses in picosecond (trillionth of a second!).

Unlike the previous generation of nanosecond technology lasers which utilise photothermal (heat) energy, picosecond lasers use photomechanical impact (light pulses) to directly target skin concerns without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissue. They are much more powerful and safer with very little or almost zero downtime. And for that reason, they are gaining popularity among the aesthetic doctors in Singapore.

Dr Yang was the FIRST doctor in Singapore to own a PicoSure Laser, and his PicoSure Laser treatment has recently won him the ‘Style: Best Beauty Treats 2016’ award by Style Magazine.

Constantly seeking betterment of his practice of an aesthetic doctor, Dr Yang is always on the lookout for aesthetic medical equipment for his patients. When he saw that there is another high-performance Picolaser (known as Enlighten) that is tunable and highly customisable to treat different skin concerns, he knew he had to get it. So now, he did it once again by being the FIRST and ONLY doctor in Singapore to own BOTH the PicoSure laser and Enlighten laser.

Dr Yang was very kind to invite me for another round of laser treatments.
