CYNOSURE PALOMAR ICON 1540 FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENTS IN BEVERLY HILLS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

You deserve to look as youthful and beautiful on the outside as you feel on the inside. Whether you desire to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize scars or stretch marks, remove hair, or even out pigmentation, laser revitalization treatments offer beautiful, long-lasting, natural-looking results safely, with minimal downtime and without surgery.

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

An industry-leading aesthetic laser platform, the Cynosure® Icon™ system delivers exceptional results for a range of common skin conditions. The Palomar 1540 laser treatment is one of the treatments available on this platform, specifically designed for skin revitalization.

The Palomar Icon 1540 laser is a nonablative fractional erbium laser, that can effectively treat the following skin conditions: fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin, wrinkles around the eyes, “smoker’s lines”- fine lines around the mouth, necklace lines along neck, acne scarring, lax facial skin (mild), enlarged pores, rosacea, uneven skin tone, irregular skin texture, stretch marks, and scars.

The Palomar 1540 laser creates microbeams of energy to penetrate deep into the skin layers, while leaving healthy intact skin in between, allowing the body to use it’s natural wound healing process to increase collagen production and regenerate tissue, with minimal downtime. This tissue regeneration results in a smoother, tighter, more youthful-looking surface, lessening the appearance of discoloration, scarring, fine lines, and uneven skin texture.

One treatment can achieve visible results, while multiple, targeted treatments can drastically rejuvenate the appearance and feel of your skin.

WHICH CYNOSURE ICON TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

STRETCH MARKS – THE COMMON PROBLEM

Stretch marks – almost every woman has them. Anytime the skin has been stretched too far or too fast — such as during puberty, pregnancy or weight gain — stretch marks, also known as striae, can appear. Unfortunately stretch marks are indicative of permanent damage to the dermis, so topical creams cannot erase them.

You can embrace them or try to lessen them, and for those who wish for the latter, we have a treatment for you. Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses laser light to break down stretch marks in a fractional manner, and improve the appearance of your skin. In just a few skin treatments, redness can be reduced, and if already mature, additional treatments may be needed to truly reduce their visibility.

HELP REDUCE STRETCH MARKS WITH A SERIES OF LASER TREATMENTS

Typically, patients require around six treatments to restore skin smoothness and consistency. It’s a fast and easy treatment that typically takes 30 minutes, yet it can deliver superior, long-lasting results. It’s ideal for all stretch marks, no matter what caused them. Best of all, there is minimal downtime with the treatment.

REDUCING SCARS IS POSSIBLE

Fractional laser scar treatment is an effective nonsurgical way to treat scars. Laser scar removal uses powerful technology to reduce the look of scars without harming surrounding skin. The goal is to leave behind the least visible scar possible, ideally one that is imperceptible or nearly so. Several factors go into the appearance of the scar, and timing is also important.

HOW LASER SCAR TREATMENT WORKS

Unlike surgery, laser scar treatment uses focused micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure and breaking down scar tissue. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin — the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that is well tolerated, and requires little-to-no downtime with minimal discomfort.

The Icon fractional laser treatment is a fast, simple and effective treatment option for scar removal. Developed by the world leaders in fractional laser technology for scar treatment, the technology boasts minimal downtime and can be used on any skin type.

LASER SKIN REVITALIZATION

Beautiful skin is always in, and more and more people want an appearance that matches the way they feel on the inside: young and full of possibilities. Ideally, the goal is to get there with minimal downtime, and that is why fractional laser treatment may be right for you.

Fractional laser skin resurfacing treats undesirable skin imperfections on your face and body. It’s now easier than ever to improve the way your skin looks and feels, without surgery or lengthy recovery times.

TAKE YEARS OFF YOUR SKIN WITH JUST ONE TREATMENT

Look as young as you feel with laser revitalization treatment that reduces unwanted signs of aging, including wrinkles around your eyes and mouth. Just one laser treatment can soften fine lines and smooth the overall texture— without surgery, with minimal downtime. The more treatments you do in a series, the better and more long-lasting the results.

Beautify your skin with laser revitalization for: wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles), crow’s feet, wrinkles around the mouth (perioral wrinkles), frown lines, lipstick lines, smokers’ lines, and facial wrinkles. You can also treat other areas of the body, such as hands, arms, and décolletage.

It’s a great option for:

  • Treating wrinkles with minimal discomfort
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Dramatic, yet natural-looking results

AT THE CLINIC

During your consultation, Dr. Anita will take time to learn about your concerns and aesthetic goals, and discuss treatment options in detail. She will go through your medical history and perform a physical exam to determine the best plan to reach your goals and make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.

THE TREATMENT

The day of the treatment, you will be asked a set of questions to make sure you are safe to proceed, and will have the opportunity to go over any additional questions you may have prior to the treatment. Following the resurfacing treatment, a serum will be applied.

POST TREATMENT

Following the treatment, it is normal to experience some swelling. Please use recommended post-treatment care products, and adhere to strict sun protection. Dr. Anita will see you for follow-up 4-6 weeks after treatment, at which time you may also do your next treatment if doing a series.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENT?

Fractional laser treatments offer unique benefits. Unlike traditional laser treatments, which deliver laser energy to the entire skin surface area, and require a lengthy recovery with prolonged downtime, fractional laser treatments instead deliver microbeams of laser to a tightly controlled fraction of the skin, leaving intact skin elements in between for faster healing. This means less downtime and recovery, yet excellent results. This means you are only red for a few hours to a day, see a fine grid pattern on the skin for several days, and fully healed typically by day 5.

DOES FRACTIONAL LASER WORK ON STRETCH MARKS?

Yes, fractional laser treatments work on stretch marks. However, due to the nature of stretch marks, effective treatment requires multiple sessions.

WHAT IS FRACTIONAL LASER SKIN REJUVENATION?

Fractional laser treatments deeply penetrate the skin’s layers in order to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process, promote elastin and collagen production, and trigger tissue regeneration. This regeneration leads to a rejuvenated and more youthful skin appearance.

WHAT DOES FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING DO?

Fractional laser resurfacing creates zones of “micro-injury” while leaving intact skin in between. This jump starts the body’s natural regeneration and healing processes, and effectively treats a variety of conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin, wrinkles around the eyes, “smoker’s lines”, lipstick lines, fine lines around the mouth, necklace lines along neck, acne scarring, lax facial skin (mild), enlarged pores, rosacea, uneven skin tone, irregular skin texture, stretch marks, and scars.

IS FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN?

Fractional laser resurfacing is great for the skin, for both skin maintenance and also rejuvenation once signs of aging and sun damage have appeared. It is also a great way to lessen the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
