When aging, acne or sun exposure has left your skin with imperfections, such as wrinkles, scars, or discoloration, laser skin resurfacing can help restore youth and health. At Metamorphosis Medspa in St. Cloud and Orlando, Florida, the expert team of physicians and aesthetic specialists offers Palomar Lux1540 Fractional™ laser resurfacing to give you a tremendously improved complexion. Call one of the offices or book an appointment using the online tool to learn how fractional laser technology can transform your look.
The Palomar laser treats only a portion of targeted skin at one time. The laser delivers energy in microbeams rather than in a wide swath. These beams penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, sparing surrounding tissue from damage.
The tissue affected by the beams begins a healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. The fractional laser treatment allows for faster healing, while still notably improving the skin color, texture, and tone, and diminishing scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The Palomar laser is the latest technology that effectively addresses a number of common skin complaints to enhance your self-confidence and look. These include:
Fractional laser treatment does not have the downtime or moderate redness associated with other skin resurfacing technologies.
The team at Metamorphosis Medspa customizes your treatment plan so you can achieve your aesthetic goals. A series of sessions is required because each session only affects 20-25% of your skin. Most people see benefits from three to five sessions, each spaced two to four weeks apart.
The skin that’s untreated during the laser session drives your healing process and fills in treated areas with healthy, more youthful-looking skin.
The laser energy also stimulates collagen production to help support healthy, stronger skin that‘s generated from the inside. Collagen is a natural compound that contributes to skin and tissue health and strength.
No downtime is necessary following treatment with the Palomar fractional laser. Immediately after treatment, you’ll feel like you have a mild sunburn, and the skin will remain pink for about one week.
You may have some swelling for a few days and splotches and dry patches for the week following treatment as well. These issues are signs that the skin is healing can be masked with makeup, if necessary.
Be diligent about applying sunscreen containing SPF 30 to laser-treated skin, as the areas are more sensitive and sun exposure can delay healing.
