Using FDA-approved technology, the Palomar Icon is able to safely penetrate the surface of the skin to eliminate excess melanin. Topical creams and over-the-counter remedies are only able to fade or lighten dark spots on the surface of the skin, while the Palomar Icon is able to transform affected areas without damaging the surrounding skin. Most dark spots will require only a few short treatments to be completely removed depending on their darkness and size.
Everyone likes to have a sun-kissed glow, but after the summer fades unwanted dark spots may remain. Dark spots are caused by an excess of the pigment melanin and often appear at birth or after prolonged UV exposure. Now these minor skin imperfections can be easily corrected with noninvasive laser treatments using the advanced Palomar Icon Aesthetic System.
The ultra-concentrated laser works by breaking up the brown spots into tiny particles that the body can eliminate through the lymphatic system and circulation. The damaged lesions experience a subtle desquamation and eventually slough off, thus revealing clear and flawless skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.
Changes in pigment and vessel clearance will be visible in one to three weeks. Most patients find the procedure tolerable and do not require numbing cream or anesthesia. They often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band. Patients can generally resume their normal activities following their in-office treatments with no major side effects.
If lesions and blemishes have crept onto your complexion and you’re unhappy with the look of your skin, laser treatments with Dr. Farag are the quickest way to address the problem.
