Your provider uses a fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. Fractional skin resurfacing with Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger skin.
Most treatments last no more than an hour. Depending on the condition being treated, your provider may recommend a single treatment session or a series of progressive treatments for your best results.
Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after the treatment. In some cases, your therapist may recommend mild pain management options
during the procedure and/or for a few days following the treatment.
Most areas of the body can be treated with Fractional Laser. The most popular areas are; the full face – or to simply focus on one area like around the eyes, mouth or cheeks. Neck, décolleté and hands are also very commonly treated. Any area of the body where skin quality and aging is a concern can be treated, such as over any scars and stretch marks.
Laser skin resurfacing works on many skin types, including very light and very dark skin. Different resurfacing options can knock out the deepest wrinkles, improve the most challenging scars, and help correct a wide variety of other skin imperfections. Your therapist will discuss treatment options with you
Usually you may resume your regular activities the same day following some treatments; more aggressive procedures may require several days of healing.
Ask your provider about what you can expect from your treatment.
Depending upon the treatment option your provider recommends, you can expect to experience a temporary redness, warmth, and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. In other cases, some post-care wound management may be necessary for a few days following treatment. Your therapist will discuss potential side effects and your posttreatment
expectations with you based on the type of treatment you’ll receive.
Other differences are societal. Men are more likely to wait longer to come back for treatment. Men tolerate the return of wrinkles better. They’re not as bothered as quickly. Women sit in front of a mirror putting on makeup every day and are acutely aware of changes.
Men can also benefit from the medical applications of Botulinum toxin wrinkle reducing injections. Other medical applications of Botulinum toxin wrinkle reducing injections, common to both men and women, are the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, debilitating muscle spasms and certain eye disorders.
