Introducing the Palomar ICON Laser
~ By Linda Manco
Christine Hamori Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Spa is the first medical facility on the South Shore to introduce the newest aesthetic Laser called the Palomar ICON. The Palomar ICON redefines the standard of light-based cosmetic care by introducing several new enhancements designed to improve outcomes and patient satisfaction. The Palomar ICON represents a new generation of technology offering a comprehensive suite of the most popular treatments including wrinkle reduction, fractional resurfacing, photo-facial skin rejuvenation, acne treatments, stretch mark treatment, acne scar and surgical scar improvement. Using the latest diode laser, the Palomar ICON offers greater speed, power and cooling which improves treatment outcomes and allows greater patient comfort. There is no need for topical anesthetic and gels.
The Palomar ICON system provides the most requested aesthetic treatments with many patented innovations. The Skintel melanin reader is a revolutionary device that provides additional information on melanin density in the skin, prior to treatment. The Skintel reader aids the treatment process by suggesting settings based on the individual patient’s melanin index value. This is a more standardized method to determine a patient’s skin type as opposed to a subjective observation of the skin and the patient’s own account of recent sun exposure. This tool is very helpful in determining the maximum laser settings and light wave settings for each patient.
The Palomar ICON fractional non-ablative laser offers superior results with minimal downtime. Resurfacing is designed to target aging and sun-damaged skin by zeroing in on damaged collagen. The purpose of this treatment is to repair sun-damaged skin by forming new collagen fibers and removing very fine layers of the epidermis, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment also lightens brown spots, shrinks pores, and improves skin’s texture and tone. It will also improve acne scars and surgical scars. Fractional resurfacing can virtually treat any part on the body including face, neck, chest, arms and legs, this advanced high speed resurfacing treatment has been designed to treat a full face in 15 minutes. The Palomar ICON has advanced adjustable contact cooling which keeps the epidermal temperature cool for enhanced comfort and skin protection.
Photorejuvenation or IPL is one of the most popular treatments in Dr. Hamori’s medical skin spa. It is a cosmetic treatment that uses gentle pulses of intense optimized light to treat brown spots, blotchy skin and broken blood vessels which occur as a result of aging and sun exposure. It is ideal for the person who has a busy lifestyle, wants no down-time but still wants a noticeable improvement. This is an ideal treatment for patients interested in coming in during their lunch hour.
Millions of women have stretch marks, which occur normally as a result of puberty, pregnancy, hormonal changes and weight gain. Until now there were few options for stretch marks with the exception of ineffective expensive creams. The Palomar ICON fractional laser is one of the few treatments approved by the FDA for stretch marks. The ICON will help improve the red discoloration and skin irregularities associated with stretch marks, leaving clients with smoother, better looking skin.
To achieve optimal results with any of the laser treatments, multiple treatments may be necessary. Once you have completed a series of treatments you will begin to notice a more healthy and youthful glow to your skin. You can maintain this glow with prescription strength products individually chosen for you by our medical team. Exfoliating chemical peels, topical retinoid or glycolic acid formulations will assist in repairing sun-damaged skin and encourage skin cell turnover maintaining a smooth and translucent appearance.
The main advantage of this new laser technology is significant improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, pore size, tone and texture of skin. This is especially important for people that have busy lives and limited time for recovery. Resurfacing treatments deliver maximum treatment results with minimum recovery time and provide appreciable improvements.
With proper sun protection, you can expect the results to last a few years. Dr Hamori’s practice is devoted to helping both men and women achieve a positive body image and maintain a youthful appearance at any age. Christine Hamori Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Spa offers complimentary skin consults with advanced trained medical aestheticians who will help you to determine the best treatment plan for your desired results.
