The ICON Laser - Laser Resurfacing & Photorejuvenation
1540 Fractional Laser HandPiece
With the 1540 handpiece, our skilled medical professional can smooth skin damage from surgical scars, acne scars, and stretchmarks. We use two different Microlenses to produce these improvements. The XF Microlens uses non-invasive high speeds for faster sessions in smaller treatment areas, while the XD Microlens is used for greater permeation to reach deeper skin problems.
This laser is non-ablative, which means it does not damage the upper layers of skin during treatment. It is also the only FDA-approved laser used to treat deep scars and stretchmarks on any area of the body, for an effective, safe treatment that produces dramatic improvements in skin quality and appearance.
Non invasive scar treatment: smoother, glowing facial skin
The 1540 Fractional Laser is ideal for patients who want to:
- Reduce the appearance of unsightly scars
- Achieve smoother, more youthful looking facial skin
- Restore skin texture, glow, and even skin tone
The 1540 laser works for all skin types. It is ideal for various types of scars, regardless of depth and any pigmentation abnormalities.
ICON laser treatment can improve the way your skin looks and feels, without surgery or lengthy downtime.
Skin resurfacing with the ICON can improve the appearance of multiple skin flaws and blemishes:
- Age spots
- Skin tone and texture
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
ICON fractional laser achieves excellent skin resurfacing results. 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 creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
The ICON works on all skin types, including very light and very dark skin. It boasts flexible treatment of numerous conditions. Most sessions last for no longer than an hour. You can decide whether to treat multiple skin complaints at once, or over successive treatments.
Dramatic rejuvenation of the skin is now possible using the ICON fractional laser system. The system uses Optimised Light™ photorejuvenation technology, which delivers gentle pulses of intense, optimised light to regions of unwanted pigmentation and facial vessels.
The appearance of sun spots, age spots, spider veins, rosacea and capillaries can be reduced.
Treatment time can be as short as 30 minutes, depending on the area treated. Excellent results can be achieved within one or two treatments, but for best results several treatments may be required.
The number of treatments necessary depends on patient expectations and on response, ranging between 1-5. Excellent results can be achieved with 1-2 treatments, but for the best results several treatments may be required. We prefer a minimum of 1 month between sessions.
It is important to stay out of the sun for several days and avoid applying any non-recommended products on your skin. Most people find they can resume normal activities after 3 days.
Once desired results have been achieved with a course of laser, maintenance treatment may be recommended by the practitioner.
