The Icon™ Aesthetic System is the next generation of platform technology. Offering multiple devices in one machine, it enables aesthetic practitioners to provide a comprehensive suite of the most popular treatments, from hair removal to wrinkle reduction to scar and stretch mark treatment.
The 1540 Fractional handpiece of the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System, is a fractional non-ablative laser that blasts multiple columns of laser light into the deep dermis which is the layer of skin that is found under the epidermis, the outer layer of skin.
The outer epidermis layer stays intact with the Icon laser skin treatments. These multiple columns of focused light energy damage the cells contained within those specific columns. The moat of skin that surrounds each individual micro-thermal injury zone starts to phagocytize (eat up) the damaged skin cells, and the surrounding skin replaces those damaged cells with new cells. The DNA itself is stimulated to produced new skin.
With multiple passes of 1540 nm beams, multiple columns of skin are damaged and then replaced by the body. Over time, the skin begins to take on a fresher, baby soft appearance as more and more new skin is stimulated to be formed. This multi-functional 1540 Fractional laser treats a variety of unwanted skin problems such as stretch marks, melasma, surgical scars, acne scars, crows feet, fine wrinkles.
