Palomar

How does Palomar work?

Palomar is a non-invasive treatment that used fractional lasers to get rid of scarring.  The laser beam is divided into over a thousand microscopic treatment zones that treat multiple areas of the skin at the same time.  This is the most advanced as well as customized laser skin care treatment available. Palomar treats depressed acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks and unevenly pigmented skin. Palomar 1540 XD/XF uses both ablative and non-ablative treatments that work on the dermal collagen layer of the skin. The fractional laser treatments work on dermal and epidermal layers.


What does Palomar Treat?

  • Acne Scars
  • Surgical Scars
  • Stretch Marks 
  • Melasma
  • Facial Lines and Wrinkles

What can I expect?


Typically three treatments are required, depending on the energy level used in each treatment. Treatments are spaced one month apart. The results are not immediate and are slowly progressive, with optimal improvement visible over a three to four-month period. This time frame and treatment regimen allows for complete healing and replacement of damaged tissue with new collagen and elastin, and viable healthy skin cell growth. Most patients experience little to no side-effects from treatment, and shaving or application of make-up can be done soon afterward. Patients can return to their everyday activity soon after treatment.




Some side effects that may occur after aggressive or high-level treatment include:

Excessive desquamation (scaling, peeling) and some crusting

Swelling for up to a few days after treatment – this can be helped by applying an ice pack at 10-minute intervals for the first 24 hours.

Post-inflammatory pigmentation – occurs more commonly in patients with a history of melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (more common in patients with darker skin types)



*Palomar can be used anywhere on the body but is recommended for the neck, face, chest, and hands.
