Avoiding Side Effects from Fractional 1540

Lux 1540 treatments are very safe and effective. Avoid sun exposure and self tanning products 2 weeks before and after procedure to prevent any side effects especially scarring. Bleaching creams and products with active ingredients (such as benzoyl peroxide, retinol, salicylic acid) should be stopped 2 weeks prior treatment. The use of Accutane 6 months or less, and Pregnancy is a contradiction as well.
