Before & After
PaloVia® Skin Renewing Laser
PaloVia® Skin Renewing Laser® is a fractional skin rejuvenating laser designed specifically for home use. It is the first fractional laser cleared by the FDA for home use, clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Used in the privacy of your own home, PaloVia requires only 3 or 4 minutes daily and produces visible results in a month. After the first month, maintenance treatments are typically advised twice weekly. Clinical studies have demonstrated continued improvement over 4 months. Additional regular or periodic maintenance treatments may be continued and this is best discussed with your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon as part of your individualized long term anti-aging or skin rejuvenation plan.
Fractional lasers use tiny beams of laser light to penetrate more deeply into the skin than creams, lotions or most peels and thus they can help to repair, restore and renew the skin’s own collagen and elastin fibers and dermal structural support without injections or foreign substances. Importantly, PaloVia produces natural results.
Originally, laser skin resurfacing required a week or two of wound care and healing. Dr. McDaniel and his team in Virginia Beach helped pioneer the original CO2 laser skin resurfacing many years ago with what was then groundbreaking technology using the Ultrapulse CO2 laser. Fractional laser resurfacing was developed to minimize the down time and discomfort of these original “ablative” resurfacing procedures as well as to avoid the potentially significant side effects. Fractional laser resurfacing has emerged as one of the gold standards for skin rejuvenation for wrinkles, photoaging and acne scarring. The devices used in physicians’ offices today are very effective with minimal side effects, and when properly used, the right fractional laser devices can treat skin of any color. So these non-ablative, “no-down-time” modern fractional lasers have become very potent weapons in cosmetic surgeons’ “war against wrinkles and aging.” This technology is now available and safe for home use.
The significance of this breakthrough has recently been recognized by Allure magazine which, after careful scrutiny of the science and clinical studies and results, selected PaloVia as one of their “Big Breakthroughs” in beauty products in 2011—one of the premier awards in the beauty industry. Earlier in 2011, Elle magazine recognized PaloVia as one of their “2011 Genius Products.” While home use skin rejuvenation devices have proliferated, many do not even have clinical studies and FDA clearance for fine lines and wrinkles. PaloVia is the first FDA-cleared home use fractional laser. It was developed by a leading manufacturer of medical fractional lasers—Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc. in Massachusetts—and it is clinically proven to be safe and effective. While the current FDA clearance focuses on fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, it is expected to be useful for treating wrinkles in other areas and potentially other skin problems in the future as well. Please consult with your dermatologist about possible uses other than those in the instructions.
