Over time, the effects of the sun, wind, time and hormones begin to appear in the form of fine lines, age spots, and sun-damage. Our skin is our body’s largest organ, but maintaining its youthful, vibrant appearance doesn’t have to be a difficult process.
Photo Rejuvenation was designed to combat skin damage in a softer gentler way. Advanced, intense, pulsed light and fluorescent pulsed light systems are the latest innovations in non-ablative cosmetic skin rejuvenation. We use our Palomar Systems to restore a more youthful appearance to your skin by efficiently treating redness, flushing pigmentary problems, scars and wrinkles; to provide you with smoother, healthier, younger looking skin.
How does Palomar pulsed light work?
Palomar Systems use specialized handpieces that filter light from different parts of the spectrum, each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sunspot removal and vessel clearance. The Palomar RejuveLux handpieces emit pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels, and converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels.
How is Palomar Pulsed light different from laser?
Pulsed light systems and lasers are very similar, but Palomar Pulsed Light systems use a much larger treatment window than most lasers. This spreads light over a wider area of the skin and allows faster coverage of the skin and quicker treatments as a result.
What body areas can I get treated?
Most areas, except directly around the eyes. The face, neck, chest, arms, back, and legs can all be treated.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some mild swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
Sunspots/Sun damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.
Rosacea: Skin tone will typically benefit from less pronounced redness within a week after treatments.
Spider Veins: Vessels may disappear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10-14 days.
Typically a few treatments will be necessary to treat sunspots, rosacea, and vessels.
