The Palomar LUX 1540 laser is a revolutionary noninvasive laser therapy we offer in Denver, Colorado, to dramatically improve skin texture and pigmentation, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars, and brown spots without significant downtime. The Palomar LUX 1540 is similar to the Fraxel laser except that we are able to offer our fractional laser treatments at a significantly reduced price because there are no consumable costs that we have to pass on to our patients!

After the treatment, you will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then minimal discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for 5 to 7 days. This is a normal sign that the skin is deeply healing. Swelling is common and may last for 2 to 5 days. Flaking and bronzing, which are part of the normal process of skin repair, may also occur. Some patients are able to return to routine activities the same day. Others require a little more time, depending on their skin condition and treatment. It is important to apply an SPF 30 sunscreen daily during the healing phase and for several months after to protect the new skin.
Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues that have been affected by the Palomar LUX 1540 treatment, producing even longer-lasting beneficial changes.
