TheConsultation explains Palomar StarLux
Palomar StarLux offers patients another option when it comes to battling issues associated with skin discoloration and scarring. During the treatment, patients should expect that the target area will be fully cleaned before a gel will be placed on top of the skin. It is also necessary for the patient to wear protective eyewear. The device will be moved across the skin to allow the light energy to address the target area. Patients should expect a mild sensation and discomfort should be at a minimum.
Each treatment is expected to last between 20-30 minutes. Following treatment, the skin will not feel burned, but swelling and redness should subside after 24-48 hours. It takes about one week for the skin layer to shed completely.
