Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing Q & A

by Liliana Manrique, MD

With our 1540 Laser, change isn’t drastic or scary – it’s you, just younger. There is no downtime. Dr. Manrique suggests a mix and match approach of lasers to correct discoloration and improve skin texture.

What does fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing help with?

1540 Laser Cynosure ICON with XF Microlens and XD Microlens is effective on:

  • Improves skin irregularities and reduces the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars. The facelift’s scars are not a problem anymore.
  • Clinically proven laser for the treatment of stretch marks.
  • Treats fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Customizable facial treatment to focus on each patient’s problem area.

How does the 1540 Laser Cynosure ICON work?

1540 Laser Cynosure ICON is fractional laser treatment that works below the skin’s surface from the top down, addressing imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots. 1540 Laser Cynosure ICON light energy stimulates your skin’s natural collagen, rejuvenating skin cells below the surface to help smooth the creases and pockets that cause wrinkles and scars. 1540 Laser Cynosure ICON only treats the targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.

For a safe and effective treatment, Dr. Manrique uses Skintel Melanin Reader technology, the only FDA-cleared melanin reader. Skintel determines the average melanin density of the skin in a quantitative manner prior to energy-based aesthetic treatments, such as hair removal or skin revitalization. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps Dr. Manrique better choose treatment settings for superior results, while minimizing the risk of over-treatment.

Until now, aesthetic treatment providers have primarily relied on old, fairly subjective tools to determine a patient’s skin type, including the traditional Fitzpatrick Skin Type evaluation, observations of the patient’s skin, and the patient’s account of recent sun exposure. With Skintel, there is no more guessing.
