1540 Non Ablative Fraxel Laser for Around the Eyes

The 1540 non-ablative fraxel laser works great for the delicate skin around the eyes and neck.  In our practice, we achieve significant tightening in these treatment areas after just 2-3 treatments.  I recommend 3 treatments every 3-4 weeks and then treatment every 4 months as maintenance.  We also have our patients use a growth factor after the treatment like Jan Marini Regeneration Booster or Neocutis Biocream.  

Most people see results in only one treatment. The 1540 fraxel treatment addresses sun spots, age spots, diminishes wrinkles and resurfaces skin, thereby enhancing the vitality and youth of any patient’s look. Skin imperfections on the face and body can make clients look older than they want to appear. Laser skin resurfacing offers an easy way to minimize the appearance of a wide variety of skin imperfections without invasive surgery and with minimal recovery time.

Frax 1540 is a great option for eyes and neck

Yes-Frax 1540 is a great option for the thin, delicate skin around the eyes. This area often ages faster than the rest of the face and in turn should be treated with care. A combination therapy of Frax 1540 and Botox makes the biggest impact in treating that area without surgery. I also recommend the Obaji Elastiderm applied twice per day. This is a bi-mineral complex of cooper and zinc that helps to smooth and tighten skin.

Yes, Palomar Lux 1540 is a great anti-aging treatment for the neck and around eyes. You would need 6 to 8 treatments.

Palomar Lux 1540 for wrinkles around the eyes and neck

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.
