This is the most advanced non ablative skin resurfacing laser currently available. This laser smooths out wrinkles, tightens skin, reduces acne scars, treats melasma and age spots. A remarkable technology that re-texturizes the skin. The 1540 nm wavelength uses photonic energy by Inducing new collagen formation in the dermal layer of the skin. Three to Four of these treatments a month apart will mimic the results of the more ablative CO2 Fractional laser treatment we offer…but with this laser (Palomar Fractional) there is NO DOWNTIME!

The Palomar Fractional Laser is by far a revolutionary device, it has beneficial effects on not only new scars, but will improve the appearance of older scars as well. This device is one of our Acne Scar patient’s favorite friends, remodeling their skin without keeping them out of work or play. This device has been shown to be very effective on stretch marks after several treatments.

After arriving 45 min early to your appointment, the staff will apply a numbing gel to your face, neck, hands, or stretch marks. This medication works well to reduce sensation of discomfort during the procedure, but it takes over 30 minutes to absorb into the tissues. The micro-thermal zones (where the laser light passes thru the tip) are spaced out a millimeter apart to allow for the adjacent minimally treated tissue to help the treated tissue and accelerate healing. In order to maximize the results, the Laser Technician performs a number of passes over the areas to be treated. This is the theory behind Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing. Below are examples of before and after patients that have undergone 4 treatments.
