Palomar Lux 1540 vs Active Fx
I am considering having a series of 4 laser treatment for the area around my eyes which looks hollow with fine lines/crows feet and slightly puffy.
The instrument to be used would be the Palomar Retractional Laser. I understand that the results last up 15 years which is why I am seriously considering it.
Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
i assume that you are referring to the palomar lux 1540 fractional laser.
this is a fairly new device that is a that companies version of the fraxel. like the fraxel, its an erbium laser. its an ok device, nothing amazing, though. one thing i can say for sure, though, is that the effect does not last for 15 years. i have the fraxel and the active fx, so i've seen what fractional lasers can accomplish. the results are impressive considering there is little downtime, but the best one is the active fx. the others, fraxel included, give subtle results that last a couple of years.
no device can stop time, and promising 15 years is pretty silly.
in my opinion, active fx would be more worth your time and money. it is more expensive, but results are really good. take a look at the internet reviews for the 2 devices.
