Here at the Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, we achieve wonderful rejuvenation results with the Palomar Icon 1540, a premiere non-ablative fractional laser that corrects numerous skin flaws with minimal downtime, leaving skin looking more youthful and refreshed. The Palomar Icon 1540 works by delivering light energy to the skin. This energy penetrates deep into the dermis where it creates narrow, deep columns of skin coagulation, surrounded by healthy, untreated skin.

This is all part of the normal healing process and will last between 5 to 7 days.
A majority of patients begin to see positive results after their first treatment. However, most individuals will enjoy optimum results with a regimen of 3 to 5 sessions, scheduled 3 to 4 weeks apart. Once you’ve completed your final treatment, improvement will continue to progress for several months as collagen continues to remodel.
