Palomar PaloVia Skin Renewing Fractional Home Laser Review

I spoke briefly a few videos back about my Palomar PaloVia Skin Renewing Fractional Home Laser and wanted to share some information about this interesting in home skin renewing laser system.

I have been using it for about 2 weeks so far and it is really hard to say exactly how it's working because at this point I am using it every day and it does beat up the skin to some degree causing a mild sunburned looking effect that for me I find tends to irritate the area and cause a bit of swelling and of course redness. Once I am done my full month cycle of everyday use and let the skin take a rest, I will really know if there is a significant improvement or not. By the way after the full month of everyday use, I will only be required to use the Palomar PaloVia Home Laser only twice per week on each area I plan to treat.

Keep in mind the Palomar PaloVia Laser is intended to be used for the under the eyes and crows feet areas but many people have used the PaloVia Laser for other areas of their face. I have also been using mine on my forehead wrinkles.

If you're interested in the next best device (since the PaloVia is no longer for sale), then checkout the Tria Age-Defying Laser system.

Here is some more info about the PaloVia Skin Renewing Fractional Laser taken directly from their website:

What is the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser?
The first FDA-cleared, at-home laser clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

What are the advantages of using the PaloVia laser?
The PaloVia laser allows you to proactively reverse the signs of aging – in the privacy and comfort of your own home. No costly appointments. No travel time. Just 3 - 4 minutes a day, whenever it works for you.

Who developed the PaloVia laser?
Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of cosmetic lasers for dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

How does the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser work?
Unlike lotions and creams, which are most effective on the skin's outer layer, the PaloVia laser also works below the surface where wrinkles form. It generates short pulses of micro-fine laser light that penetrate deeply into the skin's sub-layers, treating the skin's aging support structure. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin, helping skin look smooth and youthful.

What is non-ablative fractional laser technology?
Non-ablative fractional lasers generate short pulses of micro-fine light, which can be manipulated by size, energy, spacing and depth. Unlike ablative lasers, which remove the top layer of skin and part of the sub-layer, non-ablative fractional lasers keep the outer layer of skin in place, for faster healing and recovery.

How does the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser compare to professional treatments?

Get Fit Over 40 Update Video - Lost a Few Pounds - PaloVia Wrinkle Laser

I wanted to do another update video, not too much going on but there are a few news worthy topics I wanted to go over with everyone.

Some of you may remember I started a weight cut about a month ago and so far everything is going really well. At the beginning I was right around 200 pounds from my bulk and wanted to cut down to 190 pounds over about a 2 month period, which is a very realistic expectation of 5 pounds per month or just over 1 pound per week. So far I am down about 6 pounds and really the only thing I have changed is how many calories I'm eating, some days I cut 1000 calories from my base diet and some days I cut a bit less. I have not changed my ratio of proteins, fats or carbs one bit and I have not changed how I workout, still no traditional cardio and I am still lifting heavy weights just like  I did when I was bulking. Sure the energy is a bit down but I can work through it!

In terms of losing muscle, I am happy to say I feel have not lost any and perhaps have even put on a pound or so since I feel my strength is on par with perhaps a few extra reps here and there. Check-out my Lose Fat and Gain Muscle - Back to the Basics video on how I am doing this.

I do make quick mention of my two weeks so far of testing my NeriumAD Face Cream. Two weeks is not a lot of time to really see results but I will post an update when I have completed a full month of use.

The other main update I talk about is my acquisition of a PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser which is the first FDA-cleared, at-home laser clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Unfortunately this products has been discontinued "for business reasons" by the company that created it but I did manage to find one in good working condition. I am going to most likely do some dedicated reviews on this product and I am hoping it will help with my wrinkles under the eyes :(
