How Do 1540 Fractional Laser Treatments Work??
1540 Laser Skin Resurfacing is non-ablative, meaning it does not vaporize or remove skin tissue. Instead, micronized heat columns target and absorb water in the skin causing precise, microscopic wounds to occur.
The laser is also fractional which means that heat columns are delivered in a dot-like pattern injuring only a portion or “fraction” of the skin.
The Result: This controlled injury triggers a wound healing response in the body which naturally creates new, healthy, strong collagen and elastin fibers that, over time, improve the quality, thickness, and texture of your skin.
How Do I Know if 1540 Fractional Laser Treatment is Good for Me?
Non-ablative 1540 fractional laser skin resurfacing technology is used for many skin conditions like fine lines, acne scars, surgical or wound healing scars, melasma and stretch marks but unlike it’s sister, ablative CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing, 1540 laser is less aggressive causing only minimal downtime.
This treatment is utilized best when performed in a series of three to six sessions to produce cumulative improvements over the course of three to six months.
Additionally, treatments can be performed on all skin tones and types for concerns on the face and body.
What to Expect During 1540 Fractional Laser Treatment
1540 fractional laser will take 30-45 minutes for the full face.
Topical numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes prior treatment.
Skin is cleansed thoroughly and numbing cream is removed.
Goggles are placed on your eyes to protect them throughout the treatment.
We will then place the laser around your face, eyebrows, mouth, and eyes (up to the bone above your eyelid).
The laser will be moved around small areas of your face (about the size of your thumb) until your entire face is treated.
The discomfort experienced during treatment is minimal. Cold ice rollers are available for extra comfort.

Immediately after the treatment, apply an ice pack to the area, on and off for 30 minutes, to reduce heat and mild swelling.
Keep the area moist and drink lots of water. Aloe vera or any moisturizer without alpha-hydroxy acids will work and should be applied as needed throughout the day.
The treated area may be washed gently with a mild soap or cleanser. Skin should be patted dry and NOT rubbed.
Itchiness is common and is a sign of the healing process, if needed an OTC anti-itch cream can be applied to subside this.
Darker pigmented people may have prolonged discomfort than lighter skin people and may require aloe vera gel, anti-itch cream or an antibiotic ointment longer.
Avoid any heat to the skin for up to 2-3 days such as hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga, and vigorous exercise to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation (darker pigmentation).
Avoid makeup application for a minimum of 24 hours
Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin to achieve your best results.
Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds throughout the treatment course so as to reduce the chance of adverse reactions like hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.

I go to Denver Laser Solutions for Botox and laser hair removal and all the girls are amazing. I usually see Mara, she is so thorough and welcoming and makes me feel so comfortable. The last time I went, she did my Botox and it’s literally the BEST job I’ve ever had. I’m very picky with my face, and this is the only place I trust for my injectables. I recommend to all my friends and family.
