Talk about a cool beauty machine; this one wins hands down. If you’re looking for facial rejuvenation, the Palomar Icon 1540 offers multiple treatments via one incredible system. The combined laser and IPL technology is quite the aesthetic performer complete with a handheld device that can address wrinkles, skin texture, acne, hair removal, scars, and pigment issues. The Icon has been developed with safety and efficacy and has become one of the hottest cosmetic treatments available. The machine even boasts a built-in melanin reader to gauge your skin’s density for the appropriate laser level to use.
The Science Behind Palomar Icon
It’s a great 30-minute procedure that doesn’t require much if any downtime. Before your aesthetic technician performs the treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your face. The erbium non-ablative laser delivers consistent results and is suitable for people of all ages.
The laser works by emitting light to the skin through a lineup of high precision microbeams that penetrate deep into the dermis. This action creates thin, deep columns of skin coagulation, but your healthy, untreated surrounding skin is not affected. In turn, your skin will start repairing itself by replacing sun-damaged cells with new, healthier skin.
The Palomar Icon 1540 is a comfortable treatment and can be tailored to each individual client. The device features different levels and attachments, and your aesthetic specialist will be able to determine the proper phases to use. The wand rolls over your skin with its smooth glass surface pulsing laser or light energy onto your face. Then, moisturizer and sunscreen are applied as the last step.
When you leave the office or spa, your skin will be pinkish and may show reddish circles due to the shape of the wand tip. It is common to see a little bit of swelling under the eyes and/or some facial peeling if you have a dry complexion. Other than these temporary and minor side effects, the downtime is quite manageable.
Skin care experts recommend several Palomar Icon sessions to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation results. The treatments can be performed once a month.
After three or more sessions, clients notice a further improvement in skin tone and texture. In addition, dark spots, freckles, enlarged pores and fine lines and wrinkles soften and improve.
Let’s be frank. Most of us prefer a non-surgical method of achieving facial rejuvenation. The results look natural, and our complexions glow. The Palomar Icon 1540 is a skin care dynamo.
