The Palomar Lux1540 is a powerful fractional non-ablative handpiece that works with the Palomar StarLux 300 and StarLux 500 laser units. It also works with the Icon laser system. The Lux 1540 is highly effective in the removal of acne and surgical scars. The Lux1540 can also be used on all skin types.
Treating scars through surgical revision is a more complicated, invasive, and painful process when compared to treatment with a non-invasive cosmetic laser solution. The Lux 1540’s fractional laser technology is an optimal alternative to undergoing what can be painful surgery. In comparison, there is also minimal downtime. Topical treatments with gels and ointments are another option but are not as effective.
How Fractional Laser Technology Works
The Palomar Lux 1540 delivers a beam of fractional laser light deep into the dermis, coagulating tissue in a precise manner. The epidermis remains undamaged. The coagulated tissue then begins to heal and replaces the scar with new healthy tissue. This aesthetic laser handpiece also has built-in cooling technology that protects the skin during the treatment process. This allows for safer treatment with minimal pain.
Aesthetic Laser Treatment Comparisons: Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing vs. Ablative Skin Resurfacing
When it comes to cosmetic laser treatment options for acne and surgical scars, the CO2 laser is another option. Laser skin resurfacing with a CO2 laser is another alternative for treating scars however the time to heal is longer and there are additional risks with CO2 lasers. Risk of infection and long-term pigmentation change are possible. Fractional laser treatment is safer, results in much less downtime, minimal pain during treatment and excellent results.
