Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System is an advanced, light-based form of treatment designed to alleviate a variety of skin conditions. It offers concentrated laser power with a built-in calibration feature to optimize the treatment of a targeted area. This versatile device provides a safe, effective solution for dealing with a wide range of surface and subsurface skin problems.
The Palomar Icon system features patented state-of-the-art technology to provide patients with the most comfortable experience as well as the most successful results. It uses the Skintel® Melanin Reader, which is the only melanin reader that has received FDA clearance. This device measures the average melanin density in the skin before the treatment begins in order to tailor treatment settings to that patient’s unique skin characteristics.
Treatment Options with the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon Aesthetic System can be used to effectively resolve a number of different skin issues. The device provides comprehensive treatment options that enable it to meet the needs of nearly any patient.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing treatments are performed in order to improve the overall condition of the skin. The focused beams of light energy can counteract the effects on the skin of aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne and more.
Laser Wrinkle Reduction
The Palomar Icon system can significantly improve skin texture and smooth out the creases within the skin that result in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Scar and Stretch Mark Removal
Scars and stretch marks can be eliminated or diminished in appearance with a laser treatment. The precisely focused light targets the surface skin at the treatment site to reveal the undamaged layer beneath.
Permanent Hair Reduction
Unwanted hair can be safely and effectively removed as pulses of energy are directed into the hair follicles. Without harming the surrounding tissue, this energy is absorbed into the targeted follicles and damages them so that hair growth can no longer occur.
Laser treatments for spider veins, telangiectasias, hemangiomas and rosacea are a minimally invasive method of eradicating these types of vascular lesions. By heating the affected vein and causing it to close, the blood flow will be diverted to healthier veins and the damaged vein gradually disappears from the surface of the skin.
Advantages of Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon system offers many benefits over other skin treatment techniques. It features the most advanced cooling system to make sessions comfortable for patients and protect the skin from heat damage. Special filters reduce the exposure of tissue outside the treatment parameters to the laser light. In addition, treatment with the Palomar Icon system is optimized for efficiency so sessions can be completed just as thoroughly in less time than many other types of lasers.
