I am always in search of truly effective skin care developments. My skin is very fair, with significant broken capillaries and stubborn brown spots from sun damage that even the best topical products haven’t been able to entirely erase.

After reviewing numerous technologies and systems, our Medical Directors selected the StarLux System by Palomar, and I was incredibly impressed by the treatment for a number of reasons.

First, the broken capillaries on the side of my nose diminished noticeably. These were the same capillaries that I had zapped with a ruby laser after my first pregnancy (which left my skin bruised for over a week).

Second, my areas of hyper-pigmentation had cleared, to reveal a more even skin tone, smaller pores, improved collagen production, and generally more radiant skin.

Finally, with the Palomar StarLux Photo Facial, I had virtually no down time. I finished looking slightly pink all over, but with no “bruised” areas. I actually went straight out to dinner after my treatment.

While I was extremely pleased with the results of one treatment, the cumulative effects of a series of four Photo Facials made an even more dramatic difference in the quality of my skin.
