The Palomar Fractional Lux 1540 is a non-ablative laser that penetrates deep skin tissue with microbeams of energy in a fractional pattern. This allows for collagen formation and skin rejuvenation without the side effects and recovery time needed with more aggressive ablative lasers. The Lux 1540 is a great option for men and women who want to smooth wrinkles, reduce acne scars, reduce pigmentation problems such as melasma, or create a smoother, more even skin tone and texture.

What Does the Palomar Fractional Lux 1540 Laser Treat?
The non-ablative Palomar Fractional Lux 1540 laser can treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- General scars
- Brown spots
- Skin laxity
- Uneven skin tone and texture
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. Most patients do not need to take any time off work after having a Palomar Lux treatment. However, due to its gentle nature, multiple sessions are required for full results.
How Does the Fractional Lux 1540 Laser Work?
The Palomar Lux uses fractional resurfacing technology to penetrate deep skin tissue without damaging the top layer of skin. Microbeams of energy are used in a regular, fractional pattern that helps to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. This in turn helps to plump, firm, and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out.
The Palomar Lux Procedure
The Palomar Lux laser utilizes built-in cooling technology that helps to protect the outer layer of the skin and to lessen any potential pain or discomfort from the procedure. In addition, a topical numbing cream is used for the patient’s further comfort. Treatments generally take only 30 to 40 minutes, and patients can return to their everyday activities immediately afterwards.
Following a procedure, the skin may have some redness, swelling, or tenderness, which should dissipate within a week. It is highly important to protect the skin from the sun after any laser procedure, as the skin will be extremely sensitive to UV rays. Try to avoid the sun as much as possible, and be sure to wear a high SPF sunscreen whenever going outside.
