Our fractional 1540 laser delivers pulses of energy, in a scientifically pre-determined pattern, to the areas and the depth of skin responsible for wrinkles, scar tissue, stretch marks, crepiness, and unevenly pigmented areas. It does NOT burn the skin off as do other lasers and deep medical chemical treatments. There is no resulting oozing, scabs, or significant down time. Treatments result in microscopic stimulation of underlying tissue and renewed collagen production in the skin. Over time, there is a firming up of laxity, resurfacing of uneven texture and pigment, and repair of prior complexion injuries leading to a healthier and more radiant appearance.
Treatments for these conditions can require 2-7 sessions, dependent upon a patient’s individual concerns. Sessions can take as little as 30 minutes. The skin may require treatment with a mild topical anesthetic, or the use of our unique light sedation to provide the most comfortable experience possible, again, depending upon the treatment being performed. Some patients would describe the treatment as having a mild “snapping” sensation or to have the sensation of a sunburn but most feel nothing at all. You will experience some redness and mild swelling after your treatment that typically resolves in 3-5 days. We offer Obagi skin care products that are available to add to your home regimen to get the maximum benefits from your treatment. Lastly, we will arrange for your follow up appointments, and as always we will be available to discuss any issues, concerns or comments you may have.
