How the Palomar Icon Laser Works
Palomar Icon is provided by LA Plastic Surgery to their clients. The Palomar Icon has a built-in Skintel Melanin Reader, which detects your melanin density to accurately diagnose your skin tone, ensuring the appropriate level of laser is applied. The machine also has a built-in advanced cooling system for added skin protection and comfort.
This treatment smooths out wrinkles and rough scars, fade pigmentation issues, and generally improve overall skin tone and texture. The IPL function provides photorejuvenation treatments, which are ideal for people who have pale to medium or olive toned complexions and wish to refine skin texture and even skin discoloration caused by sun damage, aging, acne, rosacea, damaged blood vessels, or capillaries.
If you’re considering the Palomar Icon procedure, this page will give you a basic understanding of the procedure – when it can help, how it is performed and how you might look and feel after surgery.
Is Palomar Icon Right For Me?
Generally, within 2 to 3 weeks of the first treatment skin will look and feel smoother and have a more even-toned complexion. After 3 or more consecutive treatments, there will be further improvement in skin tone and texture with a visible decrease of redness, dark spots, fine lines, and pores. Freckles and age spots may appear darker for up to a week before they fade gradually.
Every patient is different. Most people see the best results when they receive a series of treatments.
Please ask Dr. Lacerna if there is anything about the procedure you don’t understand.
