Cynosure ICON Fractional 1540 Laser Treatment
Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a relatively new method that is used to treat a number of skin conditions with minimal downtime. One of the premier fractional lasers is the Palomar Icon 1540, a non-ablative laser that is part of the Cynosure Icon™ Aesthetic System. This laser delivers light to the skin through an array of high precision microbeams that penetrate the skin deep into the dermis. This creates narrow, deep columns of skin coagulation, surrounded by healthy, untreated skin. This causes the skin to repair itself by replacing old, sun damaged skin with new, younger, healthier skin. Since the Icon 1540 delivers fractionated light, the treatments are safer and produce consistent results.
Fractional resurfacing with the Icon 1540 is much less invasive compared to ablative laser procedures, resulting in a faster recovery time. Most patients experience minimal downtime, with some mild redness and swelling for a couple of days. Since these treatments are fractionated and less invasive, generally 3 – 5 sessions are recommended for full results. These are performed every 2 – 6 weeks. Fractional skin resurfacing with the 1540 laser is also much safer and avoids the side effects and complications that are associated with non-fractionated lasers.
