Pulsed Light Laser Treatments

Photorejuvenation
Treats Rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins on face, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, while improving pores, texture and skin tone. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the sunspots and the blood in the visible vessels. These fade within two weeks. The face, neck, chest, arms, back and legs can all be treated. A series may be recommended.

Hair Reduction
Using the Palomar hair removal handpiece, pulses of light are emitted into the hair follicle. The light is absorbed by the pigment, then transfers the energy to the cells responsible for hair growth, disabling them. Most areas require 4-6 treatments to achieve a 70-90% permanent hair reduction.
(Inquire * Special Package pricing of 6 treatments or more).

  • In general, three or more treatments are required to achieve permanent hair growth reduction.
  • Darker hair responds best to laser hair removal.
  • Lighter-colored hair is least responsive, but topical medications can be used in an effort to increase effectiveness.
  • Patients seeking laser hair removal are advised to avoid tanning or sunless tanners and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen for up to six weeks prior to treatment.

Side effects

  • The most common side effects include discomfort, swelling, and redness that last one to three days.
  • Other possible side effects include blistering, herpes simplex outbreaks, bacterial infections and temporary skin lightening or darkening (especially in patients with skin of color or those with tans).

Expected results

  • The percentage of hairs removed per session varies by location on the body, with thinner-skinned areas (e.g., armpits and bikini area) generally responding better than thick-skinned areas (e.g., back and chin).
  • About 10 percent to 25 percent reduction in hair growth can be expected with each treatment.
  • Treatments are repeated every four to six weeks.
  • The hair that regrows following treatment tends to be lighter and finer in texture.
  • Patients are instructed to avoid sun exposure and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 or higher following the procedure.

Skin Tightening
The Palomar LuxDeepIR Fractional Infared Handpiece stimulates the body's healing response allowing creation of new tissue, reducing skin laxity, thus a tighter appearance. Can be used on face, neck, and abdomen.

Infared tightening is often combined with photorejuvenation and non-ablative fractional resurfacing.

Fractional Resurfacing
The Palomar Lux 1540™ Fractional Non-ablative Handpiece delivers columns of energy into the skin resulting in an improved skin appearance with no down time. This approach stimulates quick healing with no long-term redness. Treatments can be performed on most area of the body.

FDA approved for treatment of stretch marks.

Facial Veins and Brown Spots
Using pulsed light technology, individual lesions are treated leaving the surrounding skin and tissue undisturbed. Some lesions may require evaluation and/or biopsy prior to treatment. The client will be referred to the appropriate specialist if needed.

Review of medical history, skin typing, and evaluation of recent sun exposure is performed prior to all treatments.
