Healing time is fast and most procedures can be performed in thirty minutes or less with minimal discomfort and excellent long-term results for skin imperfections on your face and body.

How does it work?
Fractional skin resurfacing with the Palomar Emerge Laser uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
How long does treatment take?
Most treatments last no more than half an hour. Depending on the condition being treated, your provider may recommend a series of treatments.
How quickly will I recover?
Usually you may resume your regular activities the same day following treatment; always ask in your consultation what you can expect from your treatment.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after the treatment. In some cases, we may recommend mild pain management options.
What can I expect after treatment?
You may experience a temporary redness, warmth, and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. Your provider will discuss potential side effects and your post-treatment expectations with you based on the type of treatment you’ll receive.
