REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
Everyone wants glowing, glass-smooth skin. But if you have acne scars, wrinkles, pigmentation, and other surface irregularities, even the most expensive and rigorous skin care routine may not be enough to help you achieve that.
Unlike topical creams and serums, facial laser treatments offer a quicker and more effective long-term solution, while also being more cost-effective and less drastic than some of the more invasive cosmetic options. Palomar Icon™ can help address the following:
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
JACOB SEDGH, MD
FACIAL LASER TREATMENT PROCEDURE
For maximum treatment accuracy, a skin test will be performed either during the initial consultation or on the day of the treatment. This is performed using the Palomar Icon’s patented Skintel Melanin Reader, which measures the amount of melanin in the skin to determine the patient’s exact skin type.
Apart from the variable parameters such as the handpiece and the settings to be used, Palomar Icon laser treatments follow a very standard procedure. The skin surface will first be cleansed to remove makeup and excess oils, then a topical anesthetic will be applied to the target area to ensure complete comfort throughout the procedure.
The patient will also be provided specialized eyewear to protect the eyes from the laser light. Once the skin has been thoroughly prepped, the handpiece will be placed against a portion of the skin to begin pulsing light into the affected tissues. This will be done in sections until the entire target area has been treated.
Afterwards, a cooling serum will be applied to the treated area help soothe the skin. To avoid hyperpigmentation, the newly treated skin will also be coated with a generous layer of sunscreen. Laser procedures typically last around 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
