Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional Resurfacing Palo Alto

Treating acne scars is now easier than ever with the Cynosure 1540 laser. This laser uses a technology known as fractional resurfacing to deeply penetrate the top layer of skin, without damaging it.* With this treatment, an array of high precision microbeams are delivered to the skin, creating deep, narrow columns of skin coagulation surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. As time passes, the skin will actually begin to repair itself, and younger, healthier skin will replace the damaged skin.* Within the next few weeks to months, acne scars are improved and contours are smoothed out.*

In addition to treating acne scars, the Cynosure 1540 non-ablative laser can also treat the following conditions*:

  • Surgical scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown Spots
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin texture & tone

When it comes to fractional resurfacing, the 1540 is far less invasive than other ablative lasers.* You may experience swelling and redness for a few days following the treatment, but treatments are gentle and don’t require a lot of downtime. It may take several sessions to achieve ideal results.* We recommend that at least four sessions be performed 2-4 weeks apart.
