Palomar 1540 for Eyes and Neck
Palomar Lux 1540 for wrinkles around the eyes and neck
In my experience, the Palomar 1540 works best for FINE wrinkles, not for deeper wrinkles. The laser stimulates collagen production in the area, filling in these finer lines. It can be used around the eye in the areas spared by the protective eyewear used in this procedure. I have used it on the neck as well with good results. This treatment requires 3-4 sessions to see good results. There is about 1-2 days of redness and swelling following the treatment.
Does Lux 1540 Palomar Non-Ablative Work Well for Eye and Neck Wrinkles
The Lux 1540 non-ablative erbium laser is a very versatile laser. Not only does it improve wrinkles around the eyes, and on the neck, but the downtime is minimal. It is also used effectively for treatment of scars and stretch marks.
The side effects of Lux 1540 are several hours to a few days of mild redness and puffiness. The skin is not ablated so there is no weeping or oozing. The tissue is coagulated in place, and as the days and weeks go by, the collagen and elastic fibers in the skin increase and the wrinkles decrease.
Multiple treatments are needed.
For those who wish more and faster results, then a micro-ablative laser, the Cynosure Smartskin CO2 laser is used in our practice. This gives several days of swelling and oozing, but because it is ablative, the results are more nioticeable with each treatment.
