Eliminates Rosacea, Age Spots, Spider Veins, Sun Damage, Acne Scars, Hyperpigmentation, Cherry Angioma, Brown Spots and More!

The IPL Photofacial is a non-ablative procedure that eliminates age spots, sun damage, redness and old acne scars. The procedure can be applied anywhere on the body but is mostly used on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and hands.

In layman’s terms, IPL Photofacial treats the unwanted “reds” and “browns” that dull the complexion. Reds (like some forms of rosacea, acne scars and spider veins) and browns (like sun damage, sun spots, and acne and other scars) build up over time and create an “aged” appearance.

The wavelength spectrum of the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System targets these tiny pockets of undesirable pigment in the skin. As the hemoglobin (red) and melanin (brown) absorb the light, they heat up and fragment, becoming waste or dead cells. Then the skin’s own specialized cells, called “phagocytes”, go into action to remove this waste material revealing a clear and more youthful complexion.

The Icon aesthetic system from Cynosure was the first melanin reader to have FDA clearance. Its Advanced Contact Cooling system was designed to keep the temperature of the unit during treatments cooler to protect the skin from damage and to minimize discomfort.

Rosacea and Spider Veins

Men and women who suffer from rosacea and spider veins on the nose, cheeks and elsewhere on the face can benefit from IPL skin rejuvenation treatment. The Palomar Icon light pulse is programmed to target these pockets of visible veins and redness to provide effective rosacea treatment and spider vein treatment.

As the light pulses are absorbed into the pigment, it causes thermal damage to the vessel wall. The damaged blood vessel is then absorbed into the body as part of the natural healing process and the redness which once dulled the complexion is simply gone.

Age Spots, Sun Damage, Sun Spots Skin Rejuvenation

Years of sun exposure cause the skin to overproduce pockets of melanin on the skin. This shows up as brown spots, sun spots, age spots etc. The Palomar Icon delivers a spectrum of light wavelengths that are readily absorbed by these pockets of melanin sun damage treatment and and age spots removal. As the light reacts with the pigment, the spots are heated up and destroyed. These dead skin cells fall away, and a more even skin tone is revealed.

Not only does IPL eliminate unsightly blemishes. IPL skin rejuvenation treatment also heats the skin cells under the surface, increasing collagen production.

Acne Scars, Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Other issues such as acne, ingrown hair and other damage to the skin can leave reddish-brown marks long after these blemishes are gone. Again, the Palomar Icon IPL can target this inflammation and destroy it without damaging the surrounding tissue.

By using IPL Photo Facial technology to quickly and intensely heat only the pigment, we can clear the skin of these imperfections. As soon as the treatment is over, the phagocytes are prompted into action, and the skin begins a naturally regenerative process to provide a younger, healthier looking complexion.

"I want to say thank you to the staff in your Rittenhouse Square office. I have been getting IPL photofacial treatments for over two year. This was the first time that I had someone go over everything so thoroughly with me. This was a totally different experience than I've had before. Your esthetician obviously really loves what she does and she's really good at it. My results? Great! Thank you. " *
