Treating scars is easier than you think. Our Laser scar removal treatment uses Fractional, non-ablative laser for the treatment of surgical scars and acne scars to reduce the look of scars without harming surrounding skin. In just a few fast, easy treatment sessions, scars are much less visible, leaving behind smoother, more attractive skin. Unlike surgery, laser scar treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.
- Little to no downtime treatments
- Simple procedure with minimal discomfort
- Quick, non-invasive treatment sessions
- Excellent scar removal outcomes
Laser for the treatment of Pigmentation – Age Spots, Sun Damage or Brown Spots:
With the Palomar Icon Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device which is the newest generation of intense pulsed light devices, we are able to treat your pigmentation concerns on the face, hands, neck, décolleté and body. During your IPL treatment or Photofacial, selected wavelengths of light are delivered to the skin, targeting melanin (hyperpigmentation). The outer layer of skin is left intact therefore there is little to no downtime. Patients tolerate IPL treatments very well with mild discomfort, some redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which usually fades within a few hours of treatment but in rare cases, can last several days. When treating pigmentation (brown/age spots) it can take 7-10 days for the darkened areas (resembling “coffee grounds”) Make-up can be used immediately after treatment to cover any discoloration caused by the procedure. Patients are ready to go back to work the same day or next day. Multiple treatments are required for maximal benefit. Not all skin types are candidates for treatment and a complimentary consultation is required.

Laser Skin resurfacing
If you are looking to improve fine lines, wrinkles and the skin’s color, texture and tone then laser skin resurfacing is the right choice. Using fractional non-ablative technology, Palomar’s Fractional 1540 laser allows a more comfortable treatment with a rapid recovery. Fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing uses hundreds of tiny high-precision micro beams to create deep, narrow columns of tissue coagulation into the lower layers of the skin. A natural healing process is stimulated to create new collagen and health skin cells improving skin texture, wrinkles and sun damaged skin. The patient typically can return to normal activities immediately, with only 1 to 3 days of minimal redness and swelling. Our laser certified and licensed esthetician will perform a series of three treatments every 4 weeks to achieve fresher, younger looking skin with this revolutionary skin resurfacing technology.
- Diminish fine lines especially crow’s feet and upper lip
- Removing damaged cells
- Tighten the underlying collagen
- Smoother skin
- Even skin tone and improve sun damage
- Enhance benefits of Botox and Dermal fillers
Laser for Wrinkle Reduction
In a single treatment, the result is noticeably tighter skin, less pigment and a visible improvement in your skin’s appearance. Using Cynosure Palomar Icon™ Laser systems, we can achieve dramatic results in skin texture, wrinkles and laxity. Our board certified and fellowship trained Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeons will achieve these amazing results by directing precise micro beams or columns of energy to remove damaged skin cells within the deeper skin layers while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed resulting in faster healing. Our advanced skin resurfacing treatment triggers a deep healing process that replaces treated areas with fresh, glowing skin. The laser also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within your skin. Over time, this will build up the support structure under your skin resulting in a younger and smoother looking appearance. This procedure is performed with only local anesthetic and has a 7 day “social” downtime when the skin will be red and peeling. After this short recovery period, make up can be used to cover any residual pinkness to the skin. Within one week, you are on the road to smoother more youthful skin.
