Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is laser skin rejuvenation?

During a laser skin rejuvenation or re-conditioning, treatment, the laser stimulates the cells of the skin to increase collagen production, which improves the texture, thickness, and quality of the skin, enhancing its appearance. Laser skin rejuvenation is highly effective in treating:

  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Facial wrinkles

Laser skin rejuvenation isn’t limited to use on the face but can also be used on the hands, arms, and décolletage. It is a safe, non-invasive way to achieve dramatic results that appear natural.

How are facial veins removed?

At Pali MediSpa, an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser diminishes the appearance of visible veins just under the surface of the skin. This laser targets the problem blood vessel and applies energy that causes the vessel to collapse and be absorbed by the healthy, surrounding tissue. The procedure is quick, comfortable, and non-invasive, and the result is an even complexion accompanied by rapid recovery and no down time.

How is rosacea treated?

There are two primary treatments available for rosacea: medications and pulsed light. Medications can be effective in treating rosacea, but in comparison to laser treatment, it must be taken daily for an indefinite period and can come with systemic side effects. Also, it takes a significant amount of time to see results after beginning a medication regimen.

Laser treatment for rosacea reaches only the affected skin, and results are visible almost immediately. Light-based treatment is fast, easy, and comfortable, and the results are dramatic for patients suffering from rosacea.

Is there treatment available to improve the appearance of scars?

Yes, many patients suffer from acne or surgical scars that make them feel self-conscious. At Pali MediSpa, the Icon® laser treatment transforms patient skin with minimal discomfort and almost no downtime. The Icon laser treatment helps patients with dramatic or highly visible scars.

What can I expect if I have a skin rejuvenation procedure?

We use a non-ablative laser to stimulate your skin's natural rejuvenation process. There is NO blistering or peeling with this procedure. You may look "pink" and slightly puffy for 24 hours as if you have a very mild sunburn. Most people find that they do not need to alter their activities except to avoid sun exposure and heavy exercise.

Are these procedures covered by insurance?

These procedures are considered elective and cosmetic and are not covered by insurance. Many patients finance their skincare procedures with a credit card or small personal loan, while others save in advance to receive the services they need.
