Permanent Hair Reduction

Palomar's StarLux 500 unparalleled speed is the laser of choice for Medical Esthetics by Katie's hair removal treatments. Fast, effecient treatments are the result, I can treat a man's back or a pair of legs in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, in even less time.

Long Lasting Results

Pulsed light systems work by emitting pulses of intense lamp light in the hair follicles. The list is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Palomar's Aesthetic System's multiple hand pieces offer a variety of treatment options, such as permanent hair reduction on all skin types.

Comfortable Hair Management

Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentiallyrip the hair from the skin can be quite painful. Most people, however find the Palomar Systems to be significantly more comfortable. In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out before you are treated. With Palomar treatments, you can remain virtually hair-free all the time!

Super Fast Treatments

Thanks to its advanced technology, the Palomar Aesthetic Systems work several times faster than other light based hair removal systems. A woman's legs or a man's back can be treated in under 30 minutes, and a smaller area, such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line can be treated in even less time.

The demand for intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal and laser hair removal treatments is at an all time high. This is not surprising, considering that traditional hair removal via electrolysis or waxing is painful and expensive. Light based hair removal permanently reduces unwanted facial and body hair, in fewer treatments and with comfort than is possible with traditional procedures.

In the 1990's, Palomar pioneered permananet hair reduction after receiving the first FDA clearance for this procedure. Since then, Palomar lasers have been the industry standard that all others have been compared to, and validated by Palomar led to new, groudbreaking technology that improved clinical outcomes over a broader client base.

Palomar's hair removal technology delivers specific wavelengths, with large spot sizes, superior Contact CoolingTM and Smooth PulseTM technology to provide comfortable treatments with excellent results for clients of all skin types, hair colors and hair thickness. Palomar's pioneering, patented technologies have been established as the most versitile, effective and profitable hair removal systems available.

Palomar put their industry leading research and development efforts behind the perfection of the procedure. Palomar's hair removal equipment are clinically proven to produce results in removing unwanted hair from all areas of the body including the face, back, chest, leg, bikini line and underarm areas - with greater comfort and less down time.
