IPL Skin Rejuvenation with the Icon™ Aesthetic System
Are you afraid of needles? Finally, there is an effective noninvasive treatment that can help you can look younger! The Icon™ Aesthetic System uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to reduce the appearance of undesirable dark spots, wrinkles, and facial redness without causing painful side effects.
How Does Photorejuvenation Work?
The Icon™ uses optimized light pulses to address some of the most common skin complaints. The gentle light pulses encourage the immune system to remove excess pigment from the skin and generate new collagen. As a result, skin imperfections like sun spots, fine lines, and rosacea will naturally fade away without harming the surrounding skin. Icon™ IPL treatments are safe for most skin types and can be used without causing damage to the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
What to Expect During Icon™ IPL Treatments
Photorejuvenation treatments only last about 30 minutes. Depending on the patient’s skin type, several sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. Most people do not find IPL photo facial treatments painful, but an anesthetic cream can be applied before to treatment to reduce discomfort. The most common side effects include a sunburn-like sensation and some minor swelling, but they will not last long. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following in-office treatments without experiencing any noticeable side effects.
