Frequently Asked Questions


How does Palomar Skin Tightening work?

The Palomar Fractional Infrared delivers infrared light by fractional beams deep into the dermis, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This allows for the creation of new tissue, reducing the appearance of skin laxity on the face, neck and abdomen. The result: a tighter skin appearance.


What makes these treatments different from others?

Rather than using one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, the technology uses the “Fractional” approach: delivering an array of small beams. These beams create heated columns in the dermis, which are surrounded by an unaffected area. The unaffected tissue promotes faster healing.


Are these treatments safe? Are they painful?

The Fractional method is much safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems because it leaves a portion of the skin unaffected by the light pulses. The technology also uses 3-stage cooling. It cools the skin before, during, and after each light.


What should I expect after treatment?

You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of treatment. Because a portion of the skin is unaffected by the light pulses, there is a quick healing process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
A series of treatments at 4–6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen and other areas.
