The next generation Palomar ICON Laser System redefines what is possible with skin care and rejuvenation providing fast treatments with excellent outcomes and client experiences.
The Max G (IPL) Laser targets pigmentation and blood vessels on the skin. Pigmentation is removed or lightened and veins shrunk which reduces redness on the skin – giving a clearer, more even complexion.
The ICON Fractional Laser is fantastic at resurfacing the skin. It uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process then creates new healthy tissue resulting in healthier, younger looking skin.
This system also offers fast, simple and effective treatment for scar removal (including acne scars), stretchmarks and surgical scars. The number of treatments required will depend on the size/depth of the lines or scars. Results after one treatment are possible. Normally, two to three treatments (six weeks apart) offer the best results. Treatments for acne scarring or stretchmarks can take up to six treatments.
After treatment, a person will need a day or two of downtime. Refraining from socialising or going out to events should be minimized. The area treated will be red and swollen and can take 3-5 days to settle down, returning to normal within seven days.
After seven days, clients may start to gently exfoliate the skin making it feel very soft and smooth. The rejuvenation of the cell turnover, as well as visible skin improvements, continue for another 6 to 8 weeks.
After treatment, antihistamine medicine can help. Keep the area cool and elevated when sleeping and use a moisturising lotion during the first week.
Most treatments take between 30 to 45 minutes. Your aesthetic practitioner will advise you as to how many treatments you will need.
