PALOMAR STARLUX 500 LASER TREATMENT
The Palomar Starlux 500 is an IPL Photorejuvenation machine that delivers a wide variety of treatments using fractionated light to penetrate the skin deep into the dermis. This allows the skin to repair itself by replacing old skin with healthy new skin. Since the Palomar Starlux 500 delivers fractionated light, it's a much safer and less invasive procedure. This avoids the side effects that come with non-fractionated lasers.
What Concerns Can It Help With?
The Palomar Starlux 500 has a variety of attachable treatment headpieces that are designed for the following:
- Acne Scarring
- Leg vein treatment
- skin tightening
- Surgical Scars
- Stretch marks
- Skin texture, tone & discoloration
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
After the procedure, the treated areas of the skin will be pink and possibly swelled. There may also be some peeling, so it's recommended to use moisturizer and sunscreen lotion after for the next several days.
There is very minimal downtime and you can go back to your normal routine relatively soon after.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
First, we will apply a numbing cream to the desired area, and wait for an hour until fully numb to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. After that, the procedure takes around 20 to 30 minutes to perform, overlapping the area twice to ensure it's covered thoroughly.
PALOMAR LASER TREATMENT BEFORE AND AFTER
ABLATIVE VERSUS NON-ABLATIVE TREATMENTS
The main difference between the two treatments is that ablative lasers remove the top layer of the skin, as opposed to non-ablative that works by heating up the skin tissue without harming the surface so that your body can produce new collagen. Non-ablative lasers are best at improving skin texture and tone with little to no recovery time versus a longer recovery time (1 to 2 weeks) with the invasive ablative laser resurfacing.
