Cynosure are one of the world’s most advanced aesthetic laser manufacturers and the Icon Erbium Yag 1540 Fractional Laser can penetrate the skin deeply enough to stimulate collagen but not damage the skin surface. It delivers light to the skin through an array of high precision microbeams that penetrate into the dermis.
The effect of this treatment is to cause skin coagulation in columns, surrounded by healthy, unaffected skin. Collagen production is stimulated in the skin which will continue to repair itself with new, younger and healthier skin.
The Icon 1540 delivers fractionated light which makes the treatment safer to use on most skin types and produce consistent results.
Fractional resurfacing with the Icon 1540 is much less invasive compared to ablative laser procedures such at CO2, resulting in a faster recovery time. Most patients experience minimal downtime, with some mild redness and swelling for a couple of days. Aftercare is simple and consists of moisturisers and sun protection (SPF).
