What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation/Photofacials?
Dr. Matta uses the Palomar Medilux to reduce pigmented lesions (sun spots or age spots), vascular lesions (broken blood vessels, rosacea, spider veins and cherry hemangiomas), melasma (dark spots on the face usually in response to UV light and pregnancy) and improve overall skin texture and body. It is also useful to reduce the appearance of scars.

What areas can be treated?
Although most common for the face, chest and hands, rejuvenation can be done anywhere on the body.

What should I expect after treatment?
Pigmented (dark) lesions will darken after treatment then fade away after about 10-14 days.  Vessels generally go grey immediately after treatment and then fade over the next couple of weeks. 

How many sessions will I need?
Most people will notice an improvement from even one session, but it is recommended to complete a course of 3-5 sessions over  a period of a few months. 

What are the risks?
As with any laser procedure, there is a small chance of first degree burn or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation after treatment.  The risks are minimized by preparing properly and avoiding sun tanning for 6 weeks prior to treatment.  Click here for more details.

What to do before Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Wax or shave any hair in the area you want treated to reduce discomfort.

Avoid using exfoliant creams (Retin-A and alpha hydroxyl creams) for 1 weeks prior to treatment.

Avoid tanning, including self-tanning lotions and significant sun exposure, for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment. If you must be in the sun we suggest a total sun block (SPF 45 or higher). Your skin should be as light as possible before treatment.

On the day of your treatment do not apply any type of body lotion, oils, creams or perfumes. Keep the skin clean and free of any products. Only Vivier™ Vitamin C Serum is acceptable.

What to do after Laser Skin Rejuvenation
You will probably notice a mild heat-like sensation. This usually resolves within 2-72 hours of treatment. Mild swelling and/or redness rarely accompany this treatment, but if it occurs then it should resolve in 2-3 days.

Apply cool compresses or ice immediately after the treatment for 15 minutes every 2-4 hours to reduce any redness and provide comfort. A steroid cream or aloe gel may also be used.

Treated lesions may initially appear raised and/or darker with a reddened border. Apply ice or cool compresses for 10-15 minutes every hour for 4 hours or as needed. These lesions will gradually turn darker over the next day or two, scab and flake off by the second or third week.

Bathe or shower as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive for a day or so, cool showers will offer relief.

Avoid aggressive scrubbing and use of exfoliants, scrub brushes and loofa sponges until the treatment area has returned to its pre-treatment condition.

If blisters, scabs or irritation occurs, apply an antibiotic ointment (polysporin) to the area twice a day until healed.  Do not pick, scratch or remove any scabs should they occur. Until redness has completely resolved, avoid applying cosmetics on or near the treated areas. Avoid hot tubs and Jacuzzis and avoid activities that cause excessive sweating.

Avoid sun exposure to treated areas.  Apply sunscreen of SPF 45 or more daily to sun-exposed skin between treatments, and 4-6 weeks after treatment.

If you have been given a skin care cream program resume using it after 5 days at which time you may apply makeup as desired.

TriPollar Maxmimus Skin Tightening
In addition to the benefits of the TriPollar Maximus for the body (hyperlink to Body Contouring page), this procedure is also used as a facial shaping system. This new device combines TriLipo Radiofrequency and TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation to optimize localized fat reduction and skin tightening. The Maximus has been clinically proven to tighten skin and lift and tone underlying muscle. With the Maximus we are able to treat small delicate areas around the eyes and mouth; broader areas of the face, neck and hands. Patients see a benefit immediately after the first treatment and it continues to improve with further treatments. Most patients undergo a series of 6-8 weekly sessions, each lasting approximately 30 minutes, with quarterly maintenance.

The process itself is quite pleasant and feels like a warm massage. There is no down time, and patients can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
