Most patients will require 3 to 5 treatment sessions.
LUX 1540 microbeams penetrate deeper (up to 1 mm) than other devices. These deep
columns of coagulated tissue initiate a natural healing process that accelerates
the formation of new, healthy tissue to fill in the damaged treatment zones; the
deeper the columns, the more new tissue. Coagulated collagen and cellular debris
is expelled as skin is resurfaced. Throughout the process, the integrity of the top
layer of skin is maintained, which protects the tissue from infection as it heals.
LUX 1540 protects the skin by delivering microbeams in one short pulse at a time
with simultaneous active contact cooling. LUX 1540 treatments are significantly more
comfortable than systems that deliver beams over longer periods of time. This treatment
can be tolerated without any anaesthetic however we usually apply a topical anaesthetic
cream to reduce discomfort.
Fractional resurfacing offers a safe means of treating skin to improve texture by
stimulating new collagen growth. This is an excellent treatment for skin with fine
lines and scars.
