Palomar Photo Facials
The PALOMAR FACIAL utilizes a patented Fluorescent Pulsed Light Technology to effectively treat facial redness, flushing and pigmentary problems on the face, neck and/or chest. The PALOMAR FACIAL restores a more youthful appearance to your skin with no down time, little discomfort and minimal risk.
PALOMAR FACIAL utilizes the Palomar Fluorescent Pulsed Light system to deliver a series of gentle light pulses to the skin. Specific filters are selected to maximize effectiveness. A series of five or more treatments are performed at three-week intervals. After each session, you will experience improvement of skin tone and texture.
The PALOMAR FACIAL is especially effective in improving appearance of face, neck and chest. However, it can also be used on any part of the body.
A gradual decrease in overall redness and flushing can be expected. You will see smoother skin, smaller pore size and fading sun spots. Rosacea, a common vascular problem, will show significant improvement.
Each photo facial takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes at our office in Bellevue, Washington. Some patients may experience a mild discomfort during the treatment. For sensitive skin, a topical anesthetic may be applied. Following each treatment, the skin may appear flushed, tiny vessels may be more visible, and brown spots may appear darker. During the next few hours after treatment, redness should decrease. With a minimal recovery period and no discomfort after treatment, you may proceed with normal activities after each session.
You will experience smoother skin and a change in skin tone color after your first treatment. Five treatments are normally performed for optimal results. Improvements are gradual and will accelerate after each additional session.
