High Valley Dermatology is excited to offer PicoWay Resolve laser for treating skin irregularities and pigmentation issues. We are the first in this area to have the latest technology in skin rejuvenation.  It works on all skin types.

How does PicoWay work?

The PicoWay Resolve works differently because it uses acoustics instead of heat.  It also has a much shorter pulse duration, a picosecond or one trillionth of a second.  These pulses can shatter the unwanted pigmentation into much smaller particles than other lasers and also stimulates collagen production.  This decreases the amount of treatments needed and decreases the discomfort during the treatment.  Many patients don’t need topical numbing and can do this procedure during their lunch break.  This procedure has been shown time and time again to be effective in addressing skin irregularities and, in some cases, reversing the signs of aging.

What can we treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Age spots
  • MELASMA– finally an option that works!!  Because it uses acoustics instead of heat it decreases the risks of worsening the melasma.
  • Texture issues

What to expect during treatment

  • Mild to moderate burning sensation
  • Redness for a few hours
  • Mild swelling for up to 2 days
  • Can return to normal activities that same day
  • A lightening or darkening of the skin which will resolve


  • Improvements can be seen in few treatments
  • The targeted approach means you have little recovery
  • Collagen production which will help with fine lines and wrinkles while also reducing or eliminating pigmentation
  • A series of treatments are needed depending on desired results
  • Millions of people seek treatment for their wrinkles every year.  Wrinkles can be caused by a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This PicoWay is proven to stimulate collagen and elastin improving the appearance with each treatment.
  • In clinical studies treating acne scarring, 94% of patients were highly satisfied with results.
