Just n a personal not, I doubt this would happen honestly.... It's "adapted for home use" already, which means they took power and stuff out of it, as well as took measures to increase the safety to try to avoid lawsuits due to use by irresponsible people.
It claims it's using a laser, and having a portable, effective laser that covered a large surface around like that might be hard... not to mention VERY expensive because look at the price of it already. Also, increasing the surface area might decrease the intensity (not good), as well as maybe not be safe for eyes (remember, there's always irresponsible users). And that's not even considering how big the unit would have to be and how much power it would need and all that good stuff.
If you want quicker and easier, I'd see a dermatologist. The Palo would be expensive anyhow, so you could use that money to see the derm and get treatments that you just lay there and they do large areas and it will be higher intensity and more effective because their unit is NOT "adapted for home use."

I am waiting for something also, but I did find a device "NuFace". It is for the whole face and neck, but not the eyes. So now I have the PaloVia for the eye area and the NuFace for the rest of the face and neck. I am looking for one device and will do both. Don't know if there is anything coming on the market soon, but I do keep up with the news on this type of thing. The NuFace I have is the latest model, similar to the PaloVia, with a charging cradle and their hype is that the removable head will have attachments coming on the market. Right now the NuFace device is about $325 and the gel can be purchased for $29. I haven't used it long enough to give a review but they say the results a cumulative, as is the PaloVia. The PaloVia is for wrinkles and NuFace is for sagging skin. All I ask is that I get my money back over a 1 year period to make up for the treatments I am not going to have. Good luck.

safe for the eyes?
I had a bad reaction when using a LED tool near my left eye a few years ago. My left eye now gets very dry in the winter, and when I purchased a handheld LED device recently, my left eye felt a bit sore and dry after just 3 min. So I immediately stopped using the LED; I don't want to risk eye injury.
I'm wondering if the PaloVia is safer for the eyes, or if it can have the same drying effect as an LED device? I know that everyone reacts differently, and I'm wondering if anyone else has had eye sensitivity to the PaloVia? Or not?
Also, does anyone know if the PaloVia is safe for the area directly under the eye? I've heard this is an extremely delicate area where serious damage can be done if not careful. I'm mostly concerned about lines under the eyes, not so much the crow's feet.

This doesn't work any way close to a led and believe me when I say the difference between the 2 is one is like getting a medical treatment[palovia] and one is like a drugstore product.I love the palovia my crows feet are gone and now I am working on the lines by my mouth be aware though at first you think why am I putting myself through this pain because it is a small laser but the results are so worth if you need reduce the intestity for a week and work up slowly you might take 6 weeks to see full results but you won't be so irrated and make sure you have a dry skin rememdy available I used Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty in 2 months you will not believe it's your face looking back at you . My husband was away when I did my treatment he still thinks I had Botox behind his back it's so funny. I wish you goodluck and I also had the same problem with lightstim and had to go the doctors for dryeye!!. Had to get treatments for a month with drops and antibotics

This is a class 2 medical device and is made for / has approval for periorbital lines and wrinkles. You should wear eye protection such as a suntanning goggle if there is an medical issue you have but to be safe, call the company at their 800 number and talk to the people that make it. They will direct you accordingly. I've been using mine for 4 months and absolutely love the results.
I am unfamiliar with PaloVai but know that Quasar has a lot of science to back up their technology. If you can not talk to the manufacturer directly , I would not use the device. I called Quasar and had an opportunity to talk to the president of the company. Super warranty for 5 years on the Quasar, too.

What is the difference in the PaloVia and the Baby Quasar or LightStim?

Well that's hard to answer, but i think from the looks of it, a LOT. One works using laser to do god knows what, and the other uses LED lighting at particular nanometers.
You see..... THe palovia uses "laser" but it wont give specifics about the properties of it such as the intensity, wavelength, frequency and so on... so there's no way to know if and how it works besides taking their word for it (ive learned my lesson with listening to that while watching vague animations of it clearing pores and wrinkles that look identical to all the other wrinkle and acne animations out there).
But the quasar uses LED light... light that's at very intentional, specific wavelengths within the spectrum. Different ones have shown to have certain benefits (like 400-420nm, which is the common blueish colored ones, kills bacteria on and in the skin that causes acne, and then certain red ones like around 660nm can improve wrinkles and fine lines by increasing collagen production, and then greens are used for hyperpigmentation like freckles..etc.). Also, they give off no UV which means no cancer, which no one can say about palovia because their lack of sharing information.
There are lots of things cheaper but just as effective as the quasars (some come with 3 or even 4 colors and are more intense). A lot also come with blue and red mixed for even better results. So make sure you shop around. There's also ones that will look identical but if you read the technical stuff, you find out that the blue is 460nm, which isn't 400-420, but they will claime that THEY did a trial that said it was more effective (ehm, yeah Im sure), so be careful. You want to make sure it's a high intensity possible, with the particular thing you are looking for whether it's for acne or whatever, and that the nm is around the range you need. And you can also save yourself a lot of money by getting ones that dont need bulb replacements due to burn outs.
Some examples- BrightTherapy has one, so does Beauty Essence, Sirius, and Gmaher).
