Aging, acne, growth spurts, sun exposure, weight fluctuation: these are all things that take a toll on the appearance of our skin. We can’t be expected to be perfect in avoiding all the harmful things that could happen to our skin, but we shouldn’t settle for any damage done. Skin can bounce back with the appropriate guidance. The most effective method to renew and improve our skin is to stimulate the regeneration of skin cells.
This process is often associated with painful and inflaming lasers that leave your face red and in need of extensive healing. Luckily IPL Photofacials have all the benefits of lasers without the harsh side effects.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) uses a broad light spectrum to penetrate the skin and target the underlying cells. What’s more is it affects only the problem areas it’s directed towards without requiring treatment of the whole face
The Palomar ICON has two distinct features that help make this procedure easier on your skin while maintaining excellent results: it beams a non-ablative, fractional laser
Non-Ablative meaning it does not create a wound on the outer layer of skin in order to develop healthy skin. Non-ablative lasers reach deep under the skin to promote repair from within while protected by the healthy surface cells
Fractional meaning the beam is comprised of multiple columns of lasers in order to leave small gaps of untouched skin cells which help the affected cells heal quicker (as opposed to a ‘full field’ which heats the entire surface is reaches)
