Dermatology & Laser Center of Charleston is proud to be the first in Charleston to employ the powerful new Starlux 500 Laser and Pulsed Light System. The most powerful system of its kind in the world, the Starlux 500 replaces our previous Starlux 300, which was wildly popular in the practice. With our new system, we are able to achieve better treatment results faster. This allows us to provide our patients with the latest technology at affordable prices.
Rejuvelux treatments use specially filtered wavelengths of light delivered through a cooled handpiece to reduce the signs of aging by removing pigmented spots, dereasing the size of visible blood vessels in the skin and removing redness. The treatments smooth the skin and cause fine lines and wrinkles to become much less noticable. Increased collagen production ultimately reduces fine lines, fills in very mild wrinkles in the face and neck, and smoothes the skin, reducing pore size and improving skin texture. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Other large body areas may be treated as well.
Younger, more beautiful skin is only a flash of light away.
In 3-5 easy and comfortable in-office treatments, you can experience the results
that this state-of-the-art treatment offers. Using light energy that
collapses vessels, while heating the underlying skin allows a complete
rejuvenation treatment for the skin in one session. The sessions are
very comfortable and no anesthesia is required.
Any area, except directly around the eyes. The face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, etc. can all be treated quickly and safely.
Quick and easy! After your initial preparation, your treatment provider will move the Palomar pulsed light handpiece over your skin. The hand piece emits a light that breaks up the pigment in the lesions. Most people perceive the light as a gentle “snapping” sensation, which causes mild discomfort.
Pigmented lesions will darken slightly after treatment, and fade away after 10-14 days. Vessels (visible veins) generally undergo immediate graying or blanching and the surrounding area may redden. The vessels then fade after about 10-14 days.
Most people experience some mild temporary redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, in the treated area shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary. We will explain other less likely side effects during your consultation.
Pulsed-light systems and lasers are very similar and treat lesions in basically the same way. However, the RejuveLux process uses a new technology that removes lesions much faster than lasers. In our experience the RejuveLux system is more effective than vascular lasers with much less bruising. RejuveLux treatments can even fit your busy schedule.
