Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Hawaii
At Healy Plastic Surgery we utilize the Palomar Icon™, the industry leader with the latest laser equipment, for non-ablative, fractional laser skin resurfacing. The Palomar Icon™ has the only FDA-cleared melanin reader – the Skintel® Melanin Reader™ – to make each treatment more effective. In addition, the Palomar Icon™ has “Advanced Contact Cooling” for the most comfortable treatment with skin protection. Our state-of-the-art laser is the most powerful laser that is optimized for the aesthetic patient and has a high-speed microlens (Hexagonal XF Microlens) to increase surface coverage, making your treatment even faster!
Fractional skin resurfacing is an ideal treatment for:
- Skin laxity (loose and saggy skin)
- Fine wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Undesirable texture irregularities
- Blotchy or pigmented skin (melasma)
Fractional skin resurfacing uses laser energy to reach deep into the dermis. Deep skin penetration allows the Palomar Icon™ to stimulate new collagen through the body’s healing process, which allows for gradual skin tightening, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, and improved skin tone and texture
The term “fractional” is used as only a “fraction” of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser each time. This leaves areas of untouched skin, which can ultimately accelerate the healing process and help you get back to your normal activities at a faster rate. Fractional treatment of skin also allows for less discomfort and downtime than previous treatments.
We recommend a series of 3 – 4 fractional treatments, spaced apart monthly, to obtain optimal results. We also recommend a single treatment yearly to maintain the results you have achieved.
