FRACTIONAL SKIN RESURFACING
Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Fractional skin resurfacing is an aesthetic technique, which erases imperfections and patches and efficiently improves skin elasticity. The advantages of fractional laser means addressing skin imperfections without the need for injections. The latest generation of Palomar Icon 1540 fractional lasers helps to improve sagging skin on the neck and face, as well as the body and hands. One of the principal advantages of this facial beauty and skin treatment is the Palomar Icon 1540 is not a destructive ablative laser like the CO2 laser, but rather aids skin construction and stimulation. It is a highly efficient treatment for acne scars and fine lines with just a few sessions. The great advantage of this aesthetic technique is the ability to treat all phototypes (Fitzpatrick 1-6) and all skin categories – no matter their sensitivity to sun exposure, can be treated effectively. Where it is suitable, the Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser can effectively erase acne scars, as well as correcting small wrinkles around the eyes or the contours of the mouth. The Palomar Icon fractional laser is equally effective to even out the complexion as well as treating pigmentation spots on the face and décolletage.
A session of skin treatment using the Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser lasts about 30-40 minutes. Each session of Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser treatment starts with a detailed diagnostic examination of the skin and the areas to be treated. Once the diagnosis has been made, and the program established we can then book the first session.
The skin-rejuvenating treatment with the Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser is carried on the entire surface of the treated area of skin using several passes of the laser. A topical anesthetic is applied before the treatment to reduce any discomfort of the procedure. At the end of the treatment a thick layer of a soothing and healing cream is applied.
After the Palomar Icon 1540 fractional laser treatment, the skin experiences a reaction similar to sunburn, which lasts for three to four days. You must avoid sun exposure or at least use sun protection with SPF 50 in the months following the procedure.
