This treatment is a non-abrasive and non-invasive rejuvenation of your skin using the remarkable technology of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL Photofacials can improve the signs of sun damage, rosacea and brown spots on the face, hands and body. It has also been used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, dark circles around the eyes and fine lines around the eyes and mouth.

The IPL Photofacial handpiece is gently pressed to the skin and painless pulses of light are emitted. Usually 4-6 treatment sessions lasting about 20 minutes each will provide you with beautiful results.

Laser Acne & Scar Treatment

Acne scars and surgical scars may be a cause of a person's emotional and or physical pain and affect their quality of life.  In severe cases, scars can even limit a person's mobility.

Surgical scar removal procedures are painful and invasive and have a risk for complications.  Laser scar removal from Palomar® offers a noninvasive solution that uses fractional laser technology to deliver rapid, reliable scar removal with less risk, less pain and minimal downtime.

Our fractional laser technology is the driving power behind our acne and surgical scar removal procedure.  We use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients' skin.  Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and little to no pain is felt.
