What is Non-Ablative Fractional Resurfacing?

The 1540 fractional laser is a revolutionary noninvasive laser therapy that combines the potency of ablative lasers with the gentle safety of non-ablative lasers. It is designed to improve fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, acne and surgical scars, brown spots, melasma, and stretch marks, without significant downtime. This technology can be used almost anywhere on the body and is safe to treat all skin types!

How does it work?

Non-ablative skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive therapy that delivers fractionated beams of heat to the targeted area without injuring the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen remodeling. The fractional approach allows the skin to heal faster and reduces the number of complications that can occur. Usually a series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended every 4 to 6 weeks depending on the severity of the concern or condition being treated.

What to expect after the treatment?

The most common side effects of non-ablative fractional laser resurfacing include mild to moderate redness, swelling, itching, and bronzing. These typically last 24-48 hours in most cases but can vary between patients. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed.
