Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional laser skin resurfacing is an amazing method that is used to treat a number of skin conditions with minimal downtime. One of the premier fractional lasers is the Palomar Lux 1540, a non-ablative erbium laser that is part of the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System. This laser delivers light to the skin through an array of high precision microbeams that penetrate the skin deep into the dermis. This creates narrow, deep columns of skin coagulation, surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. This causes the skin to repair itself by replacing old, sun damaged skin with new, younger, healthier skin. Since the Lux 1540 delivers fractionated light, the treatments are safer and produce consistent results.
Fractional resurfacing with the Lux 1540 is much less invasive compared to ablative laser procedures, resulting in a faster recovery time. Most patients experience minimal downtime, with some mild redness and swelling for a couple of days. Since these treatments are fractionated and less invasive, generally 3-5 sessions are recommended for full results. These are performed every 2-6 weeks. Fractional skin resurfacing with the 1540 nm erbium laser is also much safer and avoids the side effects and complications that are associated with non-fractionated lasers.
The Palomar Lux 1540 can be used to treat a number of dermatologic and cosmetic skin conditions.
The Palomar Lux 1540 is a non-ablative Erbium laser that operates in the 1540nm wavelength spectrum.
By increasing the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, the Lux 1540 can increase the volume of the skin, improve the skin's texture and tone, and decrease wrinkles and fine lines. The following conditions can be treated with the Lux 1540: sun damage (wrinkles, crow's feet, and aging skin), acne scars, surgical or traumatic scars, melasma, skin texture and tone issues, stretch marks, and other skin irregularities. Because it is a non-ablative laser, healing time is minimal.
The Lux 1540 is more powerful than other lasers of its kind, delivering greater energy per micro-beam (up to 100 mJ) and a greater depth of penetration (up to 1 mm) than other competing devices. This can promote a more significant response in the skin, with more effective and longer lasting results.
The Lux 1540 treatments are more effective if performed in a series of individual sessions. Each session treats approximately 25% of the skin. Clinical studies indicate that an effective treatment regimen involves 3 to 5 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart. Certain conditions, such as severe acne scarring, may require more treatments for optimal results. The Lux 1540 can also be paired with (done on the same day) the Palomar Max G IPL for the ULTIMATE skin renewal treatment.
The skin is first cleansed to prepare it for treatment. During treatment, the laser hand piece is applied directly to the skin. The hand piece uses a strong built-in cooling technology to the protect the outer skin and minimize any discomfort. We also have the ability to utilize the Zimmer Cryo 6 for additional cooling during treatments.
While there is some slight discomfort, this is minimized by the cooling mechanism of the hand piece the the use of the Zimmer Cryo 6.
During the first 24-48 hours after treatment, the skin may feel mildly sunburned, sensitive, and somewhat swollen. Since the treatments are non-ablative and the skin surface is intact, there is no oozing from the skin. Over the next few days, the skin may appear slightly bronzed, which can be easily covered with makeup. There may be some flaking as well, which can be improved by using a moisturizer.
Due to the 1540 nm wavelength of the laser, the Lux 1540 can be used to safely treat patients with darker skin.

As a former customer of American Laser and past experiences that weren't so great- I was reluctant to give anyone else a fair chance. I saw Kyle for a HydraFacial which was amazing and decided to enhance a few things I wasn't happy with on my skin . He is extremely detail oriented and is very conservative (less is more) and let's you know exactly what you need and what will look good . I will never ever trust anyone else but Kyle!
