The Icon Starlux 1540 XD uses “Fractional Photothermolysis” to create an advanced form of non-ablative skin resurfacing with high efficacy and little downtime.
The Palomar Lux1540 Fractional™ Laser Handpiece delivers light in an array of high-precision microbeams. These microbeams create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis while sparing the tissue surrounding the columns from damage. This heating effect stimulates new collagen. The coagulated tissue within the columns initiates a natural healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. Excess pigment and coagulated cellular debris are expelled as the skin is resurfaced. This benefits wrinkles and scars*.
Several treatments are necessary; redness lasts 1 to 2 days and there may be some slight roughness or peeling.
*Please note that results from this treatment may vary.
