Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery Introduces the Palomar 300 IPL Laser
Would you like to have those brown spots removed? Do you suffer from Rosacea? The Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, PS now offers skin rejuvenation with the Palomar 300 IPL. The procedure is almost painless and the after effects few. Studies state that patients are left with sunburn-like symptoms on the treated areas. Each treatment can take 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated, and the benefits are substantial.
What is the Palomar 300 IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments stimulate collagen formation in the dermis of the skin. Because the epidermis is not affected, the after effects of IPL treatments are minimal. The IPL and certain lasers are calibrated to pass through the epidermis to the dermis where pigment cells, blood vessels and collagen are located.
What can the Palomar 300 IPL be Used to Treat?
The Facial Rejuvenation Experts at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery use the Palomar Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for several varieties of skin discoloration problems, including but not limited to:
- “Broken” Blood Vessels
- Age Spots
Depending on the specific treatment, most patients can return immediately to normal activity. For treatment of blood vessels, the patient’s skin may appear somewhat discolored for a short period of time. Since the epidermis is not damaged with the IPL, cover-up makeup may be applied to disguise any excessive discoloration during the healing process.
Benefits of the Palomar 300 IPL
Because the Palomar 300 IPL treatment bypasses the epidermis, one of the benefits is little to no downtime after treatment. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment! Additional benefits include:
- Pore size may decrease
- Texture of skin may improve
- Acne and surgical scars may be improved
What Can be Expected at a Palomar 300 IPL Session?
Once cooled for comfort, each area is treated sequentially. Because the Palomar 300 IPL has a sapphire cooling tip, no anesthetic is required. This cooling tip controls the skin temperature during treatment, making the experience comfortable.
Most patients describe the feeling after treatment as a mild sunburn. The treated area will appear pink to slightly red with minor swelling. The pink/red color will fade within a few hours following treatment.
