Icon™ 1540 Fractional Laser

The Icon™ 1540 laser is a non-ablative, fractional laser that can rejuvenate damaged, tired, and aging facial skin. A part of the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System by Cynosure®, the Icon™ 1540 laser can treat and resolve hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, thinning skin, loss of firmness, uneven texture, surgical scars, acne scars, and even stretch marks. At The Spa at Spring Ridge, we are pleased to offer this treatment for patients who desire youthful, unblemished, and evenly toned skin.

Do you need treatment with the Icon™ 1540 laser?

The Icon™ 1540 laser may be recommended for patients who desire treatment for hyperpigmentation, scarring, and signs of aging or damaged skin. The different Microlenses can accommodate patients who need a quick, surface skin treatment or those who need deep skin penetration for the treatment of scars, stretch marks, and other tough skin conditions. No other laser of this kind is approved by the FDA for the treatment of scars and stretch marks.

Fractional Laser Treatment Sessions

The Icon™ 1540 laser administers fractional laser resurfacing over a quick, 15- to 30-minute treatment session. The handheld device is placed against the treatment area and delivers pulses or microbeams of light into the skin. Various Microlenses make it possible to customize the treatments according to the degree and type of correction patients need. The laser is then moved to adjacent areas of the skin to deliver the light pulses in non-overlapping stages. The light energy stimulates fibroblasts to create collagen and generate new, healthy skin tissue to replace the damaged, discolored, or aging skin.

By using organized light pulses and controlled delivery, the Icon™ 1540 laser can rejuvenate, re-tone, and smooth out the skin. There is little to no downtime after the treatment, and noticeable results can be seen after just one treatment. Patients will usually achieve the best results with a series of two to four treatment sessions spaced four weeks apart, followed by biannual touch-ups to maintain their skin. Treatments can also be combined with IPL treatments.

Your Superior Results

Results from treatment with the Icon™ 1540 laser can vary depending on the reason for the treatment, the area treated, and your skin quality and age. With a customized treatment plan designed to meet your needs, you can look forward to a definite improvement in the quality of your skin. Many patients will notice that their skin is more even in tone and smooth in texture after about three weeks. Following several treatment sessions, there will be a noticeable difference in the appearance and texture of your skin. Hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and even pore size will be noticeably improved. With the Icon™ 1540 laser from the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System, you can have a comfortable non-ablative laser treatment with minimal risk and superior results.
