I get questioned frequently by patients about fractional laser treatments for acne scars, wrinkles, skin tightening, and scar improvement. Studies in the literature support the combination treatment provided by the Artisan and Icon systems by Palomar Medical.

In split face comparison studies, the combination treatment with the Palomar systems provided for less pain, and erythema when compared to other systems. The Palomar sytem, being an Er:Yag laser ablative system when used in combination with their fractional non-ablative treatment provides for equal correction when compared to CO2 laser systems. All fractional laser systems are not the same.

CO2 lasers treatments can lead to increased risk of scarring, pigmentation changes, longer healing times as well more pain during the procedure. With access to both systems, I found the Palomar system having many more benefits and less risks involved. Standard CO2 systems require systemic anesthesia whereas the the combination treatment is performed in the office under topical novocaine cream and is well tolerated. Healing times of only 4-5 days.

Call the office at 203-899-0000 for more information and to schedule your consult. Patients all over Fairfield County, Connecticut are taking advantage of this great technology.

Reports are surfacing at an increasing rate of complications with botox and filler injections performed in "spas" and with physicians and other medical personal not properly trained and experienced with the products. A 40% increase was found in the British literature. Reported recently by Katie Couric on her show, of the increasing numbers of complications with surgical procedures and non surgical procedures. "Do your homework" was the recommendation. Strongly advise doing your research to look for board certified plastic surgeons who are specifically trained and experienced. Patients in Connecticut and around the country are exposing an increased risk if they don't do their homework.
