IPL Hair Reduction

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses pulsed laser energy to remove unwanted hair from a targeted area, while leaving surrounding skin unharmed. Common areas on which laser hair removal is performed are the chin, upper lip, chest, underarms, back, bikini line and legs.

Although there are many temporary treatments, including tweezing, shaving, using depilatory creams and waxing, to remove unwanted hair, patients seeking more permanent and less irritating/painful methods are frequently good candidates for laser hair removal.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

IPL Treatments are used for Sun Damage, Unwanted Facial Veins, and to soften the signs of aging. IPL optimizes a revitalization treatment that can quickly and easily reduce undesirable brown spots, sun damage and facial vessels from the face and body leaving you with younger, more beautiful looking skin. This skin revitalization treatment is performed with the IPL Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System which uses pulsed light to gently deliver energy to the face, chest, or hands targeting and destroying unwanted pigment and vessels. This unique technology provides excellent results in just a few treatment sessions.

Light-Based Rosacea Treatment

IPL & Palomar Icon™ Non Ablative Fractional Laser system helps to reduce rosacea redness and “flushing” to reveal clearer, more natural-looking skin in just a few easy treatments, providing a more permanent result than tropical creams.
This light-based Rosacea treatment can effectively reduce:

• Rash, Redness, and Flushing
• Acne-like Papules, Pustules, and Patches
• Rosacea Swelling, Inflammation, and Discomfort

Rosacea treatments use pulsed light to target and treat the blood vessels responsible for the chronic redness that appears on the skin. Once the vessels responsible for the rosacea are treated, the redness and rash can disappear. Best of all, rosacea treatments can provide skin tone improvement by diminishing the appearance of broken blood vessels and acne-like breakouts associated with this common skin condition.

Palomar Icon™ Fractional Non-Ablative Laser

Skin imperfections on the face and body can detract from a person’s self–image and make us look older than we want to appear. Laser skin renewal with the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System offers a fast and easy way to minimize the appearance of a wide variety of skin imperfections without invasive surgery and with minimal recovery time.

Palomar Icon™ Fractional Non-Ablative laser system uses fractional-resurfacing technology, in which only a fraction of an area of skin receives laser light, to significantly improve skin texture and remove pigmentation. The energy from the laser system stimulates skin's collagen, and rejuvenates skin cells below the skin's surface, helping to smooth out the creases that cause wrinkling and scarring. Palomar Icon™ Fractional Non-Ablative laser systems, in addition to improving the tone and texture of the skin, treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Surface scarring from acne or surgery
  • Melasma
  • Pigmentation from sun damage and aging
  • Skin Tightening

Palomar Icon™ FRACTIONAL NON-ABLATIVE LASER for STRETCH MARKS

Stretch Marks are a common part of life for many men and women. When the skin has been stretched too far or too fast – such as during puberty, pregnancy or weight fluctuation – these unsightly lines appear. Finally, there is a treatment that will help reveal smoother, more beautiful skin. The Palomar Icon™ Laser is highly effective in reducing the overall appearance of stretch marks.

How does it work? Palomar Icon™ fractional technology uses pulses of laser light to target and break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production underneath the skin. This new collagen will help improve both the texture and color of the stretch marks, decrease their appearance and create a smoother texture of the skin*.
