Resurfacing, Non-Ablative

Refresh your appearance.

We all likely desire beautiful, young-looking, healthy skin. Outside factors can often speed up our aging process. Laser resurfacing is a great option to improve the aging process without surgical intervention.

Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, melasma, pigmentation and scarring with minimal downtime using the Palomar Starlux 500. Non-ablative laser resurfacing brightens and refreshes your skin by promoting collagen growth, a building block of your skin.

How does it work?

Using a fractional approach, the laser delivers heat in the skin without damaging the skin surface. When the light from the Palomar heats the water found naturally in your cells, it triggers tightening and smoothing of the skin. This grid-like treatment offers fast healing times, resulting in smoother, younger looking-skin with nearly no recovery period.

What can I expect?

Minimal redness and swelling can occur with this treatment, however make-up can be worn with no effect on your results. A topical numbing cream can be purchased, and is recommended, before each treatment to offer minimal discomfort during your treatment session.

How many treatments are necessary?

Typically, for maximum results 3-6 sessions are recommended approximately 4 weeks apart. In order to get the best outcome from each treatment, avoid sun, alpha hydroxy products and retinol products 1 week before and 1 week after the procedure. It is best practice to use a sunscreen with at least 7% zinc oxide each day.
