Laser Skin Resurfacing
Palomar developed and patented Fractional Photothermolysis
to create a
revolutionary treatment: soft tissue coagulation and non-ablative
with high efficacy and no 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.
At right: Lux1540 microbeams on the surface of the skin,
The coagulated tissue within the columns initiates a natural
healing process that
accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. Coagulated
cellular debris is
expelled as the skin is resurfaced.
Throughout the process, the integrity
of the stratum corneum is maintained, which
protects the tissue from infection as it heals. The result:
faster dermal remodeling
and skin resurfacing. At left: Cross-section of treated skin.
High Efficacy, No Downtime
The Palomar Lux1540 offers greater
energy per microbeam, and greater depth of
penetration (up to 1 mm) than any competing device. This
stimulates quick healing
within the surrounding deep tissue for the most effective
deep corrections and
long-term dermal remodeling obtainable.
In addition, the Lux1540 delivers uniform microbeam penetration,
that can't be matched by systems that use a scanning approach.
The Palomar Lux1540 features easy-change
heads for different treatment
approaches. The 10 mm spot size head delivers fluences
up to 100 mJ per
microbeam (mb) and creates a 100 mB/cm2 array of columns
for deep coagulation.
The 15 mm spot size head delivers fluences up to 15 mJ/mb
and creates a 320
mB/cm2 array of narrower columns for relatively shallow coagulation.
Speed and Convenience
The Palomar Lux1540 does not require
topical anesthesia, dye application, or an
elaborate cooling process, freeing you to treat with very
little prep or clean-up
time. This means you can schedule more appointments and
avoid the inconvenience of continually reordering costly
Safety and Comfort
The Palomar Lux1540 delivers its microbeams
in one short pulse at a time with
active contact cooling. Lux1540 treatments are significantly
more comfortable than
systems that deliver beams over longer periods of time.
10 mm uses strong built-in cooling which protects the
minimizes discomfort, and enables practical use of high energies
The 15 mm head uses moderate built-in cooling,
which protects skin between
microbeams while allowing sufficient heat to affect more
