IPL Photofacial

Palomar StarLux Pulsed Light and Laser System is the
Most Powerful Light-Based Aesthetic System in the World.
We all want clear skin, but nature has a way of sabotaging
us with frustrating imperfections. Pigmented and vascular
lesions can spoil your complexion, age your appearance
and affect your confidence. Luckily, photofacial technology
(which uses lasers and pulsed light to remove skin
imperfections) has been growing in leaps and bounds,
culminating in the Palomar RejuveLux Process.

What is it?

Pigmented and vascular lesions can spoil your complexion, age your appearance and affect your confidence. Luckily, photofacial technology (which uses lasers and pulsed light to remove skin imperfections) has advanced and improved dramatically, culminating in the RejuveLux Process. Don’t be discouraged by stories of ineffective treatments by older machines. Our StarLux technology is one of the safest and most effective available today.

Who is this for?

The photofacial is for people with brown spots/age spots and enlarged blood vessels on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands, with a resultant improvement in skin tone and texture.

How does it work?

Our pulsed light treatments improve the more visible signs of aging by decreasing redness, flushing and discoloration of the skin. Dramatic improvement in facial redness (rosacea), sun-induced brown spots, and facial telangiectasias (small facial veins) is achieved. The overall result of this photo-rejuvenating facial is a more youthful appearance in four to six brief treatments over four months.

Immediately after the photofacial treatment, there is a slight darkening of the unwanted pigment. Within two to three minutes, there is mild redness around the individual brown spots, which gently peel off within the following days. Blood vessels diminish or clear in 10-14 days. Areas of diffuse flushing or redness gradually fade, leaving skin looking clearer and younger.

Palomar™ Fractional Skin Resurfacing

The Palomar fractional laser is the latest generation in skin resurfacing technology. The Palomar fractional laser smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin discoloration as well as offers mild skin tightening, but without the downtime or mild to moderate redness associated with other skin resurfacing technologies.

Palomar fractional skin resurfacing treatments are effective only when performed in a series of sessions because each session treats only 20 to 25 percent of the skin. By treating just a percentage of the skin, the surrounding untreated skin drives the healing process, filling in the treated area with healthy, more youthful looking skin. The “fractional” treatment of the skin creates seamless, radiant skin without the unwanted side effects associated with other skin resurfacing technology.

What are the benefits of Palomar laser treatments?

The Palomar fractional skin resurfacing laser provides similar results as ablative lasers, but offers the gentle benefits of the non-ablative treatment with little to no downtime. Because the revolutionary technology of the Palomar laser bypasses the outer layer of skin, make-up can be applied immediately following the session. Some people are able to return to work and social obligations the same day as the treatment. Other people may require more time to heal, depending upon their skin condition and treatment. Your service provider can better explain how the Palomar laser treatment will fit into your schedule.

Benefits of Laser skin resurfacing:

• Improves tone, texture and pore size.
• Erases unwanted brown spots.
• Smoothes acne and surgical scars.
• Removes fine lines and wrinkles
• Rejuvenates neck, chest and hands.

Laser skin resurfacing improves:

• Periorbital wrinkles
• Dyschromia
• Melasma
• Pigmentation
• Acne Scars
• Brown Spots

How many treatments will I need?

The number of sessions will depend upon the condition treated. On average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 or 4 sessions, spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on the severity of the condition being treated, it could take up to six treatments. Results are immediate and progressive. Over the course of two or three months, new collagen begins to form, creating healthy, more youthful skin.

How are Palomar fractional skin resurfacing laser treatments performed?

Safety goggles are worn by both the patient and the esthetician. The esthetician treats one area at a time, cooling the area before moving onto the next section. No topical anesthetic is required because of the unique sapphire cooling tip. The cooling tip helps control the temperature of the skin, making the treatment a comfortable experience. A treatment session may last just over an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Is Palomar skin resurfacing laser treatment painful?

No, most people find that a Palomar laser session is comfortable. The Palomar laser has a unique sapphire cooling tip that cools the skin before, during and after each pulse light, making the treatment comfortable to most people. Most patients describe the treatment as having a mild “snapping” sensation or sunburn sensation.

What should I expect after a Palomar skin resurfacing laser treatment?

For the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel like it is sunburned and it will appear slightly pink or red with some mild to moderate swelling. The redness or pinkness will fade in a few hours. As you continue treatment, the redness or pinkness process will repeat. Using a moisturizer will help to reduce the flakiness.

Palomar IPL Skin Rejuvenation for Wrinkle Reduction

Skin remodeling is a brand new concept, which consists of
heating the dermis (deep skin layer) while protecting the
epidermis (outer skin), to build and stimulate natural
collagen formation. The technique is painless and the
resultant thickening of the dermis adds tonicity and
elasticity to your skin. The Palomar system is safe and
effective on all skin-types.
