The Lux1540 recently received FDA approval for the treatment of stretch marks. How effective is it and how does it compare to other available stretch mark treatments?
Is the Palomar Lux 1540 an Effective Treatment for Stretch Marks?

Stretch Marks 1540 Non-ablative fraxel laser
The Lux1540 is a great treatment for stretch mark reduction coupled with IPL laser. The IPL targets the oxyhemoglobin in the skin which then causes vasoconstriction of vessels and causes the redness in the stretch marks to disappear. During the process of the Lux1540 non-ablative fraxel laser treatment, coagulation occurs in the epidermis and dermis. This sparks a natural healing process that creates healthy new tissue, including new collagen, resulting in a smoother and more even skin tone. The pulses of fractional laser light are used to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production which reduces the appearance of the stretch marks on the skin.
