With so many Pico laser machines of different brands and wavelengths available, how can a patient determine which would be the most effective since most clinics do not offer more than one type of Pico laser for the sake of treatment comparison?

That is a key question! All practitioners would like an answer to that before they decide on which device to purchase.

Of course, there may be differences in the treatment outcomes between the different pico-lasers. But in reality, the differences may not be critical to the final clinical outcome. 

The final clinical outcome is dependent on other key variables including the correct diagnosis, if the condition is laser-responsive, correct choice of wavelength, energy setting, technique, and use of complementary treatment modalities. 

As such, the answer to which pico-laser is the “best” is always going to be highly subjective.

For patients, it is most important to find an aesthetic doctor whom they trust and who is able to deliver the clinical results counselled safely.
