Laser Hair Removal
The Vectus™ Laser System by Palomar, based upon the 810 nm diode, features the latest technology for permanent hair removal. Optimized to provide effective treatment for a wide variety of both hair and skin types, the Vectus Laser removes unwanted hair quickly and efficiently. The procedure only takes a few minutes for small areas and approximately 30 minutes for larger areas, with no downtime needed afterward.
Treatments with the Vectus Laser System are comfortable and safe for patients. The device has an advanced cooling mechanism that protects the skin and prevents the treatment site from feeling heated. The laser features a uniform beam, which is designed to successfully destroy the hair follicles without requiring multiple passes of the device over the same area.
Laser hair removal is a great option for the many men and women who are tired of the temporary, painful methods of removing hair from the face, back, legs, arms or other areas of the body. The Vectus Laser System will remove the unwanted hair while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Several treatment sessions may be required to obtain the best possible results.
Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System is an advanced, light-based form of treatment designed to alleviate a variety of skin conditions.
Treatment Options with the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon Aesthetic System can be used to effectively resolve a number of different skin issues. The device provides comprehensive treatment options that enable it to meet the needs of nearly any patient. The Palomar Icon system that we have has the following lasers:
Non Ablative Laser Resurfacing
This does non-ablative skin resurfacing. Non-ablative means that it does not violate the epidermal (outer layer of the skin). It treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, sun-damage, tightens loose skin, scars, and stretch marks. It is usually best used at monthly intervals for 3 or more treatments. We use topical anesthetic cream and treatments are painless. NO down time.
Ablative Deep Laser Resurfacing
This is a more aggressive treatment and treats deeper wrinkles, and acne scarring, tightens skin, more severe sun damage. Five day down time. We use topical cream for anesthesia which works fine, but do offer sedation or general anesthesia if the patient so desires.
Photofacial Skin Correcting
This is not a true laser but rather intense pulse light (IPL) which treats scars, red spots, dilated blood vessels, brown spots, melasma, and does Photofacials.
Advantages of Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon system offers many benefits over other skin treatment techniques. It features the most advanced cooling system to make sessions comfortable for patients and protect the skin from heat damage. Special filters reduce the exposure of tissue outside the treatment parameters to the laser light. In addition, treatment with the Palomar Icon system is optimized for efficiency so sessions can be completed just as thoroughly in less time than many other types of lasers.
VISIA™ Complexion Analysis
The Visia™ imaging system uses multi-spectral imaging to create a visual analysis of the skin. Complexion analysis with VISIA software displays the patient's face on a computer screen in normal and ultraviolet light modes, showing surface and subsurface skin imperfections that might not be visible to the naked eye.
The software analyzes these areas, especially those that may indicate a need for treatment and features an on-screen zoom tool to focus on specific areas. The Visia system can also create a comparison analysis of the individual's skin compared to other individuals of similar age, ethnicity and skin type.
This technology allows patients and their physicians to see even the smallest amounts of skin damage and determine the need for facial rejuvenation procedures. After a Visia complexion analysis, a tailored skin care regimen and rejuvenation plan can be created for the individual's specific needs.
