Have you spent too much time in the sun, and now it's taking a toll on your skin? Turn back time with the Palomar Starlux® photo-rejuvenation treatment, and discover renewed, vibrant skin. This treatment is indicated for hyperpigmentation (sun spots) and vascular areas (redness). It evens out the color of the skin, smoothing out red and brown spots. The areas usually treated are the face, neck, hands, arms, back, legs and other areas exposed to the sun. The Palomar Starlux® photorejuvenation treatment is also used along with other treatments like the Palomar Starlux® 1540.


Your provider will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing regularly. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.


Immediately after treatment, you can expect some mild redness to your skin and the sensation of heat. This usually lasts 2 to 24 hours.

Sun spots and sun damage: the sun spots will darken after treatment and will naturally shed from the skin within 1 to 2 weeks.
  • Rosacea: skin tone will typically benefit from less pronounced redness within a week after treatments.
  • Spider veins: vessels may appear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10 to 14 days.
Typically, a few visits will be necessary to treat sun spots, rosacea and vessels.
