Rosacea, Fine Lines and Skin Tightening
the machine they use is called Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing with the Palomar Starlux System, the treatments are $900.00 a piece.
Would this help these problems, is it worth the expense....Would 3 treatments do it?
Thanks so much.
Although I don't have this device, I do have the Starlux. I have been happy with the Fraxel Fractional Laser, however, I am somewhat skeptical that a fractional device will help you with rosacea and skin tightening. Honestly, I have a hard enough time seeing good results with Thermage (whose very purpose is skin tightening!). I simply don't think that this device will do all three things. It's an Erbium laser, which is good for helping the fine lines a bit, but I don't think that it's powerful enough to make that much of a difference. In my opinion, IPL/photofacial would be a better modality for your rosacea.
Make sure that you speak to a doctor at the clinic - if you're going to shell out that kind of money, you want an MD telling you that yes, this is the right procedure for you.
For the best results, I would target treatments, offering IPL for the rosacea, Thermage for the skin tightening and Juvederm for the lines. Sometimes one size does not fit all!
