Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing in Edmonds
Laser skin treatments are known for their ability to treat a broad range of skin concerns by inducing natural dermal repair. To do this, lasers apply controlled damage to target areas. While some lasers affect the entire surface of the skin, fractionated laser treatment applies columns of isolated damage, inducing the same comprehensive skin repair with less overall damage and faster recovery. Pūr Skin Clinic strives to deliver the best fractionated laser Edmonds has to offer to help you achieve the glowing, youthful complexion you want. Beautiful, smooth, and bright skin is the perfect way to highlight and enhance your unique and stunningly natural features.
Set the tone for radically improved skin texture with the Palomar Fractionated 1540 Laser…
The Fractionated 1540 laser is a revolutionary non-invasive laser designed to dramatically improve skin texture and tone, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and surgical scars without significant downtime. The Fractionated laser is considered a resurfacing laser that uses fractional technology. Fractional simply means the laser beam is broken up into tiny microcolumns so that not all the skin is treated at once. Because it’s a fractionated laser, the downtime and healing process is faster than lasers that target the full surface area of the skin. This laser is great for skin texture issues of the face, neck, and body.
The Fractionated 1540 utilizes fractional resurfacing technology, where only a small fraction of the skin receives the laser light.
Thousands of tiny but deep columns of laser energy are produced. This eliminates surface pigment and penetrates deep into the skin, intensively restoring the skin. Around the microscopic treatment zones, the surrounding tissue is unaffected and intact. This allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue. The fractionated laser also stimulates collagen production in the skin, which rejuvenates the skin from the inside, smoothing the appearance of wrinkles and scars.
What does the Fractionated Laser Treatment do?
The Fractionated Laser resurfacing treatment effectively improves sun-damaged skin to include tone and texture. In addition, the Fractionated 1540 Laser reduces wrinkles and fine lines and improves the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars. The Fractionated Laser targets both the surface and the deeper layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger-looking appearance. It’s an excellent treatment for the face, neck, chest, eyes, arms, legs, and back.
Learn More About Whether a Fractionated 1540 Laser skin treatment is right for you
The Fractionated laser treats a wide variety of skin conditions:
During your consultation, we will make a recommendation that is best for your skin type and desired outcome. On average, treatments are performed in a series of three to five treatments approximately three to four weeks apart. As with all treatments, individual results may vary.
Your Pūr Fractionated Laser Procedure
Before the laser is applied, your Pūr medical provider will cleanse and prep the targeted area with a topical numbing solution. After 20 to 30 minutes, they will begin applying the laser to your skin evenly and thoroughly. Once the entire area is treated, they will complete your treatment with a cool soothing skin serum to minimize any discomfort and promote healing.
What is the downtime like?
After your Fractionated 1540 Laser treatment, you can expect your skin to be pink and slightly puffy as if you had a moderate sunburn. Our Edmonds fractionated laser patients are instructed to ice the treated area and avoid strenuous activities for two to three days post-treatment. Redness and swelling will resolve over the course of three to seven days, with your skin feeling rejuvenated one to two weeks post-treatment. You will also need to protect your treated skin from sun exposure for a minimum of one month after your procedure. Furthermore, ongoing UV protection can help protect your skin from future damage and increase the longevity of your results.
Naturally Refined and Rejuvenated
As your skin heals, you’ll notice it gradually becoming smoother, firmer, brighter, and healthier. It may take up to three weeks for your treated skin to heal. However, your results will continue to develop for three to six months as cellular rejuvenation continues to take place. The effects of your treatment can last several years or longer with proper skincare and a healthy lifestyle.

This treatment will make your skin more UV-light sensitive. Ideally, these treatments are best performed October-June, avoiding mid-summer months. We ask our patients to please wear Pūr Skin Clinic-approved medical-grade sunscreen every morning, reapplying every two hours when outside, and protect themselves with hats to keep their skin safe from sun damage and skin cancers.
Both treatments produce noticeable improvements in the look and feel of the skin. However, microneedling does not penetrate the skin like laser treatments. By reaching deeper layers of the skin, laser treatments deliver more extensive skin repair.
You should plan to stay home for about one week after your treatment. After that, your skin will appear pink for a few weeks before healing is complete. Healing time varies from person to person, but you should expect your skin to take three to four weeks to fully recover.
"Love this place! I have had the best Botox treatment ever administered by Denice and I’ve had microdermabrasion that was perfect for my sensitive skin. I’ve sent two of my friends there. I highly recommend PUR."
"Denice has been wonderful! She is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field of work. She was able to provide me with answers to my concerns. Overall it has been a wonderful experience for me as I knew that I was in good hands. I’m looking forward to my next visit."
"Denice was highly recommended by a friend 10 years older than me. My friend looks beautiful while also natural and not like she’s “trying” to look younger. Denice listens to my priorities each time I see her and works very carefully to fulfill them. I consider Denice a tool in my beauty toolbox, like workouts and eating well. With her help, I feel more beautiful than ever!"
“Pur was excellent! I have had problems with Botox not feeling as potent. Other providers I went to said I was building a tolerance to the product. However, I do Botox seldom, I told Pur my issue, they did not give me more than my usual, in fact a bit less. I appreciated them listening to me. Pur did a great job. I look forward to doing more procedures with Pur!”
