Advanced Laser Technology Proves to be the Best Treatment for Photo-Damaged Skin

The Skin Center Medical Spa treats aging skin with the Palomar LUX 1540 Fractional™ laser.

A freckle here, a wrinkle there -- it's just a part of getting older, right? Not any more -- a new type of skin resurfacing technology is changing the face of skincare by systematically improving skin color, smoothing fine lines, lightening skin discoloration and offering mild skin tightening, but without the downtime or side effects associated with traditional skin resurfacing technology.

The Palomar LUX1540 Fractional™ laser is a new revolutionary technology that treats damaged skin through fractional skin resurfacing. The Palomar™ laser, similar to the Fraxel® laser, works by treating only a portion of the targeted skin at a time. During a treatment, the laser delivers light in an array of microbeams to the skin. These microbeams penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis, sparing the tissue surrounding the beams from damage. The tissue within these beams initiates a natural healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue and the fractional treatment of the skin allows for faster healing with visible results in skin color, texture, tone, fine lines and wrinkles. The Palomar™ laser is most effective when performed in a series of sessions because each treatment session only treats 20 to 25 percent of the skin.

"Fractional skin resurfacing is a tremendous advancement in skin rejuvenation," said Dominic Brandy, M.D., founding medical director of The Skin Center Medical Spa. "We are seeing remarkable improvement in sun-damage and aging skin. This technology is a non-invasive way for men women to improve the overall health of their skin without the redness or side effects seen with traditional laser resurfacing technology."

The Skin Center Medical Spa specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures designed to improve a person's appearance with little or no downtime.

Offering the most sought-after facial rejuvenation treatments on the market including Botox® Cosmetic, wrinkle fillers, gentle laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal, The Skin Center Medical Spa is the foremost authority in advanced age-defying skin treatments.
