Palomar Non-Ablative Resurfacing

The Palomar Non-Ablative 1540 Fractional™ with Impressions MediSpa in Fairfax, Virginia laser is the latest generation in skin resurfacing technology. The fractional laser with Impressions MediSpa in Fairfax, Virginia smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, treats superficial acne scars and improves skin discoloration, but without the downtime. There is mild to moderate redness than can be covered up with make up the next day.

The laser treats only a portion of the targeted skin at a time and the Fractional laser delivers light in an array of micro beams to the skin. Common conditions that the fractional laser treats are fine lines, melasma and wrinkles and light acne scars, while producing a tightening affect on the skin. Fractional resurfacing also works great to repair scars and stretchmarks.

Palamor™ fractional skin resurfacing treatments are effective only when performed in a series of sessions because each session treats only 20 to 25 percent of the skin. By treating just a percentage of the skin, the surrounding untreated skin drives the healing process, filling in the treated area with healthy, more youthful looking skin. The “fractional” treatment of the skin creates seamless, radiant skin without the unwanted side effects associated with other skin resurfacing technology. Impressions is located minutes from Arlington, Alexandria, Springfield and Reston Fairfax, Virginia and offers Fractional Resurfacing Laser.

How it works:

The Palomar Non-Ablative Fractional Laser hand piece delivers light in an array of narrow, focused “microbeams”, to create columns of coagulation (heat) within the skin, the heated tissue within the columns initiates a natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue. This results in a fresher, more youthful skin tone and texture.

Areas of treatment:

Fractional treatments can be applied to most areas of the body, including the face, chest, arms, and hands.

After each treatment:

You may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours of treatment. The skin may often have a pinkish tine for 3-4 days. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.

A series of treatments at 4 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired results. Call Impressions in Fairfax today and your treatment provider will be able to give you more information about Non-Ablative Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatment and excepted outcomes.
