What’s it like to get a Polaris treatment? During the consultation, we’ll spend time looking at your skin together in the mirror to determine what treatment(s) would give you the best results. On the day of your Polaris treatment, we’ll cleanse your face, give you protective laser goggles, and my assistant will apply cold laser gel on the areas to be treated. Then I’ll apply the laser to your skin, which will feel like a series of warm pulses. Some patients describe it as a ‘stitching’ sensation, rather than a hot flash, like other lasers. The treatment takes 20-30 minutes.
