Photo-Rejuvenation

The Palomar Photo-Rejuvenation process clears sun damaged areas of pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back. It also addresses rosacea, spider veins and individual blood vessels which can be red, blue or purple in color. The photo-rejuvenation hand piece can be used on most areas except directly around the eyes. The face, neck, chest, arms, back and legs can all be treated safely and effectively.

The Palomar Photo-Rejuvenation laser uses a specialized hand piece which emits pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the hemoglobin in visible vessels, causing these lesions to fade out within two weeks in most cases.

Our photo-rejuvenation process provides skin-safe, comfortable, and effective photo facials with little to no downtime. Photo rejuvenation appointments are quick so you can return to work or other activities right away. Typically, a few visits will be necessary to treat sunspots, rosacea, and visible blood vessels.

What to expect after your Photo-Rejuvenation treatment:

Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2 to 24 hours and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
Sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1 to 2 weeks.
Skin tone will typically benefit from less pronounced redness within a week after treatments.
Spider veins may disappear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10 to 14 days.
