Why Not All IPL Lasers Are Created Equal
Throughout life, we are exposed to environmental factors and everyday stressors which can lead to unwanted skin conditions, such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and dark circles. These issues can often be treated with an IPL, or intense pulsed light, laser. However, it is important that patients understand that not all IPL lasers are created equal. Read on to learn about the Cynosure Palomar Icon™ aesthetic system and the MaxG™ handpiece, and how it is superior to other IPL lasers.
Benefits of the Icon™ and MaxG™
At Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa, we use the Icon™ system and the MaxG™ handpiece when performing IPL treatments. This system offers many benefits compared to its competitors. The Icon™ system is the only device that comes with a melanin reader, which helps to determine the average melanin density of your skin for optimal treatment. It also has a cooling system to maintain a comfortable temperature for patients during treatment.
The Icon™ system with the MaxG™ hand piece is used specifically for IPL treatments. This laser offers more uniform heating across the treated vessel, allowing for treatment of the deepest facial vessels. This means you’ll be able to say goodbye to those unwanted facial vessels and pigmentation in no time! This laser can also eliminate rosacea, freckles, and broken capillaries on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, feet, and legs.
How does IPL work?
The MaxG™ laser works by using light wave technology. Unwanted skin pigmentation absorbs the light energy, diminishing pigment into small fragments. The laser also lessens skin redness in rosacea and broken capillaries, resulting in a more even skin tone. Patients often receive multiple IPL treatments for optimal results.
