Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing

Ideal Candidates
Women and men with aging faces with fine lines, deep wrinkles, sun damaged skin, and large pores. Those who want to avoid surgery and look 10-15 years younger.
How it Works
Palomar has the only patented “bloodless” ablative laser resurfacing treatment available-it combines the ablative 2940 hand piece with the non-ablative 1540 hand piece on the Artisan platform for an amazing 1 treatment non-surgical facelift! This treatment is perfect for those with fine lines, wrinkles, large pores or skin that is in need more tightening but don’t want the downtime of surgery or older CO2 and dot lasers that took 2-5 weeks of downtime. The Palomar fractional laser resurfacing only requires 4-7 days of healing and the holes close in 6 hours (on most lasers the holes close in 96 hours) which offers less risk of infection. Fractional ablative wrinkle treatment from Palomar uses beams of laser light that penetrates skin to just the right depth and with just the right level of heat to evoke a dramatic healing response that promotes collagen production, diminishing the appearance of fine lines around the face, especially the eyes and mouth which are most prevalent in clients without the discomfort compared to full surface CO2 resurfacing treatments. It’s a great alternative to a face-lift giving you tightening & texture improvement without surgery.
Typical Results
After only one treatment with as little as 4 days of recovery time, excellent improvement in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement in the skin’s tone and texture with tighter skin, and smaller pores. Immediate results are seen within 7-30 days. The results last indefinitely with a minimum of 5-10 years of the end result.

Fractional Non-Ablative Laser Resurfacing 1540XD

How Fractional Skin Resurfacing Works
Fractional skin resurfacing with the Palomar (Cynosure) 1540XD is a revolutionary procedure that uses laser energy microbeams to penetrate the epidermis and into the dermis. This exciting new technology allows the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, in a safe and effective manner. The procedure typically lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, and is done in the office using only a topical anesthetic cream. Patients report minimal to no discomfort during the procedure.

Non-ablative procedures have the advantage of minimal to no downtime; typically the patient leaves the office with a feeling of having a slight sunburn. This resolves in 24- 48 hours. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin. For people who cannot afford significant downtime, this procedure is revolutionary in that it addresses skin texture and fine lines with only minimal recovery.
Results
A reduction in pore size, and scarring can be seen with in 4-5 treatments on average. There is usually a 50-85% improvement after a series of treatments.
