What Facial Skin Conditions does the 1540 Fractional Treat?
Many facial flaws and conditions can be treated with the 1540 Fractional. Produced by a leader in aesthetic laser technology, Cynosure, this system can improve the following:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Scars from trauma
- Treat skin discolorations associated with pregnancy, hormones, medications or UV rays
- Improve skin texture by resurfacing
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Brighten dull facial skin
- Improve the appearance of stretch marks
What to Expect in a 1540 Fractional Treatment
Although a 1540 Fractional laser treatment produces dramatic improvements, the procedure itself takes only 30 to 40 minutes to perform. A numbing gel will be applied topically about one hour prior to the procedure. For those with a lower threshold for pain, we manage it for total comfort. The treatment itself, along with the effects of the numbing agent, make the procedure easy to tolerate.

Recovery from Fractional Laser Treatment
After treatment, you will feel like you have a mild sunburn, and your skin will have a pinkish tone for up to a week, with minimal discomfort. Mild swelling is common, and some patients may have flaking or bronzing, which resolves quickly. Every day after treatment, your treated skin must be protected against the sun’s rays with sunscreen. Your new skin, as it grows and replenishes, can be damaged by sun exposure. Many people experience very little after treatment, and return to work at once, while others may need a couple of days, depending upon skin quality and the area treated. We can advise you about what to expect, based upon the treatment needed, as well as skin quality and how you tend to heal.
Benefits of the 1540 Fractional Laser
This advanced laser treatment has many important advantages, and may be the advised treatment for the facial flaws you want to resolve. The benefits include:
Deep tissue penetration: The fractional laser penetrates more deeply into the skin structure, while leaving the surrounding tissue healthy and unaffected. It speeds the formation of new, healthy tissue and collagen, while leaving the surface of the skin intact for safer healing.
Efficient: Not only is this treatment highly effective, it is time-efficient, requiring only 30 to 40 minutes to complete.
Little to no downtime: Many patients are able to return to their regular activities immediately. While every patient is different, this system produces dramatic results without the extensive recovery needed with other types of laser treatments.
Safe: The 1540 Fractional laser protects the patient with active cooling and shorter exposure to energy beams than other systems.
Comfortable: The speed with which the procedure is performed, as well as the cooling features, makes these treatments far easier to tolerate than many other laser treatments.
