Product Overview

The PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser Anti-Aging device, developed by Palomar Medical Technologies, is the first FDA-cleared home use laser that has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.  By sending flashes of laser deep beneath the surface of the skin, the PaloVia Laser can target the source of crow’s feet, essentially reversing the most noticeable signs of aging.  It uses much of the same technology that has been utilized in professional clinics around the world for many years.  However, because of the many different safety features that have been implemented, it is extremely safe for home use.

How To Use

The PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is an extremely use-friendly and intuitive device that allows users to get professional quality anti-wrinkle results in as little as three to four  minutes per day.  With audio and visual cues provided by the device, the PaloVia laser requires little training to properly use.  Additionally, the device’s LCD screen provides the user with all of the information they need to know for each treatment.  Although it is recommended that users read through the included Instructions Manual prior to use, we have included basic instructions for using the device below.  Additionally, an instructional video has been included, as well.

1)      Cleanse the skin around the eyes, and make sure that it is completely dry.

2)      Apply a thin layer of the included PaloVia Pre-Treatment Gel around both eyes.  This helps ensure proper contact of the PaloVia’s treatment window against the skin.

3)      Treat each wrinkle with a series of application stamps.

4)      Place the treatment window of the Handpiece of the PaloVia Laser against the first wrinkle you wish to treat.

5)      Adjust the Handpiece so that the contact light illuminates (this will confirm that the treatment window is in full contact with the skin).  If the treatment window is not in full contact with the surface of the skin, the device will not emit light.

6)      Press and release the Activation button on the device.  A flashing light and a clicking sound will indicate that the laser is working.

7)      Lift the Handpiece of the laser off the skin and move the device half an inch along the wrinkle, while overlapping treatment areas.

8)      Repeat this process around each eye.  Typically, six to eight applications are utilized around each eye.

9)      Clean the treatment window of the device, and place the Handpiece in its included storage case.

10)   Continue to use your regular skin care and cosmetic products.

Who Can Use

Although it has not been explicitly stated, there are likely some individuals who should not use the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser.  Most aesthetic products that are based around this type of light therapy will typically work best on those with lighter skin complexions.  Individuals who may be sensitive to light treatment should first consult their physician.  Otherwise, the PaloVia laser should be safe for use by most men and women.

Safety Features

The PaloVia Laser is an extremely safe device to use.  The company has implanted a variety of safety features that have helped ensure that all users can get smoother, younger looking skin from the privacy and comfort of their own homes without the risk of injury.  The Smart Sensors included on the PaloVia laser work with the included PalvoVia Pre-Treatment Gel to verify skin contact of the device.  If the treatment window of the device is not in full contact with the surface of the skin, light will not be emitted.  This helps prevent accidental flashes of light being delivered into the eyes.

The PaloVia Laser also features an automatic shut off to help prevent overuse of the device.  Although overuse with the PaloVia’s low energy laser technology would be unlikely to cause any adverse skin reactions, the implantation of this feature helps users safely use the device on a daily basis.

Side Effects

As mentioned previously, the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser uses a low energy level to provide anti-aging and anti-wrinkle results to users.  Because of this, side effects of the device are minimal.  However, as with other light-based aesthetic products, some mild redness is fairly common, but this typically diminishes quickly, within the matter of just a few hours.

Replacement Parts

Unlike many other anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products, the PaloVia Laser does not require the use of any parts that will need to be replaced on a regular basis.  This helps make it extremely easy to use, and extremely easy to maintain.  The only thing that users need to occasionally restock is the PaloVia Pre-Treatment Gel.  A 7 Month Supply of this Pre-Treatment Gel can be purchased for just $30, making it one of the least expensive anti-aging products to maintain.

The technology of the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is very similar to what has been utilized in doctor’s offices and medi-spas around the world for many years.  The laser light emitted by the device penetrates deep beneath the surface of the skin, where wrinkles are rooted.  However, in order to understand what makes the PaloVia laser so effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, it may be helpful to understand what leads to wrinkles in the first place.

The skin is composed of several layers.  The epidermis, which is the outmost layer of the skin, is composed to several years of skin that are primarily responsible for giving skin its waterproof characteristics.  Since The dermis is the layer of skin just beneath the epidermis.  This is the layer of skin that the PaloVia Laser acts on.  This layer of skin features a large amount of two proteins called collagen and elastin.  Together, these proteins help keep the skin both taut, and firm.  However, as people get older, these proteins regenerate at a much lower rate.  What results, unfortunately, are wrinkles.

By sending short pulses of micro-fine laser light that penetrate deep into the dermis, the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser causes the regeneration of these proteins much more rapidly.  After just a few uses, these proteins tend to be more numerous in the skin, which is what makes the skin much more youthful in appearance.  Because creams and lotions do not typically penetrate to the dermis, they rarely will have the same quality of results that are provided by the PaloVia Laser.
