Palomar Icon Laser – Laser Skin Treatment
Palomar Icon laser
Some individuals may be interested in the fast results that can be obtained by laser skin treatment. Dr Bart at Fourways Aesthetic Centre uses the Palomar Icon laser for its class-leading spot size. This feature ensures treatments are much faster and less painful than other methods. In addition, this laser skin treatment system individualises energy delivery to your skin’s tolerance, making it extremely safe. Following a VISIA™ skin analysis, Dr Bart will create a comprehensive, customised treatment plan, which may include Palomar Icon laser skin treatment.
Laser skin treatment with the Palomar Icon laser takes skin rejuvenation to a new level. It is indicated for the following conditions, among others:
- Acne scarring
- Scar rejuvenation
- Softening fine lines
- Spider vein removal
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
The Palomar Icon is a versatile laser that combines intense pulsed light (IPL) with non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing. IPL is often referred to as photorejuvenation and is used to address skin pigmentation and texture concerns.
Benefits of IPL laser skin treatment include:
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Treatment for redness and burst capillaries
- Targeting sunspots, age spots, and uneven pigmentation
- Improving dullness, pore size, and early signs of ageing
Benefits of non-ablative fractional resurfacing include:
- Treatment for acne and surgical scars
- Reduction of stretch marks
- Softening wrinkles and tightening and smoothing the skin
In addition to laser skin treatment, the Palomar Icon can also be used for hair removal.
A Palomar Icon laser skin treatment can be adjusted to many skin tones for optimal results. IPL is ideal for people with pale to medium or olive-toned complexions, as it targets melanin. Palomar Icon laser skin treatment may not be appropriate for everyone. Make sure you tell Dr Bart if you are pregnant, have taken Accutane within the last six months, have a history of cold sores, or take certain medications like blood thinners.
Often, a topical anaesthetic is applied before the treatment to minimise discomfort. The laser skin treatment takes between 15 to 30 minutes. You might want to apply a cold compress for a while before the treatment is completed with moisturiser and sunscreen application.
Immediately after a Palomar Icon laser skin treatment, your skin may feel warm, red, and slightly swollen. It’s similar to a bad sunburn and usually improves within a day or three. For the best results, you should ideally do three to five sessions spaced three to four weeks apart, based on your customised treatment plan.
