Every band of light in the spectrum has a different wavelength, and is specifically used to perform different procedures. The Palomar pulsed light system can filter out specific lights from the spectrum and direct them through a hand piece in order to treat common problems such as:
Pulses of light are emitted from the Palomar hand piece into the hair follicles. Pigments in the follicles absorb this light and convert it to heat. This heat serves two purposes; in addition to loosening the hair, it also disables any cells that grow new hair, leaving you permanently hair free.
Although there are many similarities between lasers and pulsed light systems, the Palomar Pulsed Light System can treat a significantly larger area than many lasers. By spreading light over a larger surface area of skin, it allows for faster coverage and a much quicker treatment.
If you have unwanted hair, and are considering laser hair removal, then Palomar light treatment is the best choice. Commonly treated areas typically include those left unexposed, like the face, neck, underarms, bikini line, chest and back. We can treat any area except those around the eyes.
Treatments are as short as 15 minutes and as long as 60 depending on the size of the area being treated. Your treatment provider will move the hand piece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the hand piece is being pulsed. For most patients it will only elicit a cooling sensation from the laser tip, but there may be a slight sensation of warmth immediately after a pulse.
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, though this is not typical. This can last from 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but is actually the treated hairs being expelled from the skin.
At any given time, your hair is in different phases of active growth. Laser Hair Removal is only effective during the active growth cycle, which is typically every 6 weeks. Therefore you will need more than one treatment to effect the growth for all the areas of your unwanted hair.
Typically, a minimum of five treatments are necessary to achieve permanent hair reduction. This can vary by individual depending upon the thickness of the hair and hormonal variances.
