Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal (The New Palomar Icon IPL)
Light-based hair removal with the Palomar Icon permanently reduces unwanted facial and body hair, in fewer treatments and with more comfort than with traditional procedures. Laser light destroys hair follicles that grow new hair. The new Palomar skintel reader is able to tell the technician your skin reading to give the ultimate treatment. In addition, the Icon has a cooling system which works simultaneously with the laser to cool the skin. There is minimal discomfort and downtime with this procedure.
The advantages of light-based permanent hair reduction are clear:
- Excellent long-term results
- Great for reducing hair from larger areas
- Fast treatment sessions that can take only minutes
- Comfortable treatments with no downtime
What is a melanin reader and how can it improve my treatment outcomes?
The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ provides an additional element of treatment confidence by determining the average melanin density of skin, in a quantitative manner, prior to laser or IPL based aesthetic treatment – such as hair removal or photorejuvenation. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps the aesthetic professional to better choose the treatment settings on laser and IPL devices for enhanced treatment outcomes, while minimizing risk of over treatment.
* The Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ is FDA cleared and is only available from Palomar Medical Technologies, Inc.
