Laser treatments offer a non-invasive option for addressing common facial problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, and even excessive facial hair. To ensure a safe, quick, and comfortable procedure, this treatment makes use of the Palomar Icon™ XD Aesthetic System—an FDA-approved cosmetic laser with a wide selection of handpieces that are precisely optimized to treat specific skin concerns.
This cutting-edge technology works by emitting microbeams of light into the affected area, which treats the defective tissues and stimulates collagen production. Each treatment is customized based on the patient’s skin type and cosmetic concerns for maximum effectivity, resulting in smoother, tighter, and ultimately more vibrant skin.
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:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage and age spots
- Acne and rosacea
- Scars from acne, trauma, or previous surgeries
- Facial hair
What Are The Benefits?
In addition to treating the patient’s skin concerns, laser treatments also deliver significant improvement to skin texture, clarity, and tone. Other benefits include quicker treatment sessions with little to no discomfort or pain, minimal downtime, and rapid results.
Since the Palomar Icon™ is a fairly new technology, it is essential to have it performed by board-certified professionals for safe and effective treatment. Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double-board certified plastic surgeon known for his meticulous work in both non-surgical and surgical facial procedures. Under his care, patients can expect the following results from their facial laser treatment:

When undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it is important to meet with your doctor so that you can learn more about the treatment, find out more about your doctor and his qualifications, and most importantly, align your expectations with the most realistic outcome of the treatment. During this meeting, Dr. Sedgh will carefully examine your skin concerns to help him figure out the appropriate settings to use, as well as the recommended number of sessions needed to thoroughly address your problem areas. Here’s what you can expect from your first consultation:
- Interview asking on medical history and relevant lifestyle habits
- Detailed walk-through of the treatment process
- Optional skin test
- Detailed discussion of proposed treatment plan
If you cannot visit the doctor’s clinic for your initial consultation, Dr. Sedgh can also conduct your consultation over video conferencing.
Cosmetic laser treatments are performed as outpatient procedures, which means the patient can go home and resume their normal activities on the same day. There may be some redness, peeling, scaling, itching, or swelling, but these should gradually dissipate within the next few days. To ensure proper healing and recovery, patients will be advised to limit sun exposure and wear plenty of sunscreen, avoid harsh or abrasive cleansing methods, and to only use cosmetics and skincare products with gentle, non-irritating ingredients.
Dr. Sedgh places the highest importance in delivering patient-centered care, which is why he will personally follow your post-treatment progress in between sessions. This will allow him to monitor how well your skin is responding to the treatment, and to determine if additional sessions are required to achieve the desired outcome.
Patients should be able to see the full results of each Palomar Icon laser session within six weeks after the treatment.
Comfort & Transparency From Start To Finish
When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
