Palomar Medical just introduced the PaloVia laser, the first FDA-cleared, at-home laser clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. This highly anticipated introduction of a true fractional laser system to be used at home is poised to be a game changer in the aesthetics industry. PaloVia enables you to get a clinical level treatment at home that works like fractionated laser systems found in dermatology and plastic surgery offices at a much higher price.
With its compact size, PaloVia can be used to target aging skin around the delicate eyelid region. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes – or crow’s feet- tend to be among the first visible signs of aging. The skin is thinner and more prone to collagen depletion and years of squinting, laughing and crying can give way to creases that radiate from the corner of the eyes. The PaloVia laser works deep under the skin’s surface where wrinkles begin to form to stimulate the body’s production of new collagen and elastin. Short pulses of fractional laser energy trigger the body’s natural healing process and rebuild the support structure of the skin.
According to New York City Dermatologist Dr. Melanie Grossman, “I have been using fractional lasers on my patients for many years in my practice, but now Palomar Medical Technologies has miniaturized and perfected the technology for use at home. The PaloVia laser represents the most modern technology for at-home wrinkle treatment whether you’re just starting to see fine lines or have deeper wrinkles.”
To see optimum results, you will need to use the PaloVia laser around the eyes every day for one month, then twice per week thereafter for maintenance. The first step is to apply the PaloVia Pre-Treatment Gel that ensures proper contact of the laser with your skin. Each treatment takes only three to four minutes. It is safe, simple, effective and has a built in automatic shut-off.
The kit is $499 on Palovia.com. If you can spare three to four minutes a day to reduce your crow’s feet, it’s a worthwhile investment in the health and beauty of your skin.
