Fractional Laser Mountain View
An exciting skin care facial rejuvenation procedure, Palomar Lux 1540 Erbium Laser Technology provides controlled, efficient treatment for wrinkles and more. The “fractional” procedure targets old skin cells without harming the surrounding healthy tissue, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process and allowing the damaged cells to be replaced more quickly. Unlike older facial resurfacing treatments, the Palomar Lux 1540 Erbium Laser is so precise that it produces thousands of tiny treatment areas on the skin, called Micro Thermal Zones, but leaves the area around the zones untouched. At his Mountain View center, Dr. Robert Lowen offers this safe and effective skin care treatment option to his patients.
Palomar Lux 1540 Erbium Laser Treatment can be utilized to improve a number of skin conditions, including:
- Stretch marks
- Aging around the eyes and mouth
- Scars of any kind
- Hyperpigmentation on the face or hands
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Pre-cancerous skin lesions on the face and hands
- Sun and environmental damage
- Enlarged pores
Palomar Lux 1540 Erbium Laser Treatment is a safe, non-invasive skin care procedure that allows you to rediscover the radiant, smooth, and healthy skin of your youth. By repairing damaged skin spot by spot, rather than treating the entire face, the Lux 1540 Erbium Laser ensures quick, comfortable healing. In fact, make-up can be worn immediately following the procedure, and some patients are able to return to normal activities, including work and social obligations, the same day. Individual results vary, however, and some patients may require a few days to resume routine activities.
This convenient skin care treatment option is completed in the office in about 30 minutes. Temporary side effects include swelling and redness, but both subside over the next several days. Additionally, there is an extremely limited risk of serious complications, including infection or scarring. During your consultation, Dr. Lowen can explain the procedure in more detail to ensure you are completely confident in your decision.
