About the Procedure
Icon 2940 is an ablative fractional laser that is part of the Palomar Icon aesthetic system. The Palomar Icon system has a variety of hand pieces that can be used for skin resurfacing treatments. The Icon 2940 hand piece is effective in treating wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, brown spots, and volume loss due to natural aging and environmental factors such as sun exposure. The Icon 2940 is a wounding laser which ablates damaged skin and causes the treated areas to regenerate healthier skin throughout the healing process. Stimulated collagen production also improves the skin’s volume and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Since the Icon 2940 is a fractional laser, the recovery process is much less involved. Fractional lasers focus the heat energy into targeted columns surrounded by healthy tissue, allowing for a quicker healing process. Before the procedure begins, the skin will be examined, cleansed, and prepped with a numbing cream. Additional local anesthetic may be applied as needed. The laser will then be applied to the treatment area, targeting concern areas with uneven skin texture, irregular pigmentation, fine lines, and other skin imperfections. The provider will closely monitor the skin to ensure an effective but comfortable session. Once the skin has been thoroughly treated, a soothing serum or ointment will be applied.
