Treat Multiple Conditions
The photorejuvenation process uses pulses of concentrated light to treat:
How does Palomar pulsed light work?
Palomar Systems use specialized handpieces which filter light to target blood vessels and pigmented lesions. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sunspot removal and vessel clearance. The Palomar photorejuvenation handpiece emits pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels, which typically fade from view within two weeks.
How is Palomar pulsed light different from a 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 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 are Palomar photorejuvenation treatments like?
Your treatment provider will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.
How many treatments are required to reach desired affect?
Multiple laser treatments are necessary for best results, generally treatments are sold in packages of five.
