Initial and Long Term Results of Palomar Fractional Resurfacing

Palomar™ Fractional Resurfacing offers a new way of achieving flawless skin with its innovative technology. By using both the non-ablative and ablative approach, the deeper layer of the skin is laser treated while leaving the outer layer intact. Only certain columns of skin are treated with these microbeams, allowing healthy skin to remain and encouraging quick healing with less risks. The effect is one of a skin resurfacing treatment without the downtime.

This fast procedure can do a complete facial area or chest in about 12 minutes. With its three-pulse function, more precision can be utilized for each individual's needs. In addition, this process speeds up the rejuvenation of the collagen and newly formed tissue to reveal a youthful appearance.

Initial Results

The patient often comes home with bandages and sometimes cold compresses on the treated area. Advice and coaching on how to maintain the dressing is usually given.

Although rare, initial results could include an appearance of swelling and some bruising. The skin will be somewhat red for a few days, which can usually be camouflaged with the use of cosmetics with the approval and recommendations of the practitioner. As the skin starts to heal, flaking will most likely occur. Suggested lotions from the physician normally help with this initial result. Uneven skin color can be apparent in the short term after the procedure.

Long Term Results

After a few weeks, the skin color and pigmentation starts to even out, revealing a clearer and more flawless complexion. The skin also appears more toned and tighter, giving a fresh new youthful appearance.
