The Palomar Fractional Lux 1540 is a non-ablative laser that divides up light energy into micro beams that target surface skin cells and the mid layers of skin. These micro beams create deep narrow columns in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to form new healthy tissue.
The 1540 fractional laser is exceptional in that it treats both the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin without down time. The laser improves skin tone, color, and texture. Skin color is more uniform and imperfections such as freckles, brown spots, broken capillaries, acne scars, and/or enlarged pores are reduced.
Why is Treatment with the 1540 Fractional Laser Ideal?
The 1540 fractional laser is a great option for men and women who want the results of aggressive ablative lasers without the side effects or downtime. The laser converts energy into microscopic treatment zones to treat a fraction of the skin at a time. This is how new collagen production is stimulated and how existing collagen fibers are tightened and rearranged.
Collagen remodeling is triggered when the body believes it has been injured and stress is placed on the collagen fibers. The 1540 fractional laser creates “controlled injuries” to the epidermal and dermal layers without harming the top layer. This allows for no downtime or recovery of peeling skin.
What does the 1540 Fractional Laser Treat?
The non-ablative Palomar Fractional Lux 1540 laser can treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Scar improvement
- Brown spots and other undesired pigmentation
- Melasma (dark-patterned facial pigmentation)
- Skin tightening
- Overall skin quality improvement
- Stretch Marks (striae)
This laser combines fractional resurfacing with gentle, non-ablative laser energy for a comprehensive skin treatment that requires little to no downtime and involves only minor side effects.
Due to its gentle nature, multiple sessions are required for full results.
