PALOMAR ICON PHOTOFACIAL KANSAS CITY
TREATMENT FOR ROSACEA, VESSELS, PIGMENT, PORE SIZE
The advanced PALOMAR ICON AESTHETIC SYSTEM® is one of the most powerful aesthetic light systems in the world and one of the
most expensive systems made for aesthetic specialization. PALOMAR ICON system USES OPTIMIZED LIGHT and will often do in two treatments what other systems will take
four to seven treatments to accomplish, and in most patients one
treatment will make a very significant improvement. Beware of the
"advertising blitz" of the many lower to mid quality intense pulsed
light systems in various spas and laser clinics. Their prices may seem
slightly better to the uninformed, but the excessive number of
treatments, lower power, and inferior quality of their instruments will
end up costing you usually 200% to 400% more to accomplish the same
example, one of our patients went to a clinic in the Overland Park area
and did five pulsed light treatments (that is what she was told she needed by
this clinic), they sold her a package of five treatments for $2000, and
the patient said she saw absolutely no difference from all five of their pulsed light treatments. She came to our clinic and we did one treatment
with the StarLux intense pulsed light system, and she said she was
amazed at the improvement in redness, blood vessels, age spots and pore
size, with estimated improvement of about 70% after just the one
treatment, and we charged her $300. Generally, we recommend two
treatments about four weeks apart and then just some form of maintenance (i.e., every 6 months).

we see improvement of 30 to 50 percent after one treatment and more
treatments can improve further gains, but you will generally know if it
works with one treatment session after about 10 to 14 days.
In our middle ages early lines start to appear with loss of elasticity and textural changes. Sun exposure, hormones, atrophy, and genetics can cause brown spots, age or sun spots may set in the skin, the skin starts to thin, blood vessels show through and we get overproduction of blood vessels, and the collagen starts to wear out. Sun damage, tobacco use,
health issues and genetics can contribute to these processes. Thinning of the
skin and atrophy can set in and vessels and redness will appear. As we continue to age.we get deeper lines, wrinkles and creases. Our bones show reabsorption and we gain fat in some areas and lose fat in other areas to distort our appearance and often causes sagging jowls and areas of loose skin.
there are multiple signs of aging and sun damage with lines, wrinkles,
loss of elasticity, redness, blood vessel formation, age spots it
is wise to proceed with skin rejuvenation and a photo facial (face,
neck or hands) for best overall results (see section on Skin Rejuvenation). One treatment alone can help, but more sessions can make it even better.
We can help control the chronic frustration of melasma.
How do various treatments work?
The ICON MAX G OPTIMIZED LIGHT SYSTEM hand piece will target the area of pigment or
blood vessel because melanin or hemoglobin will absorb the energy like a
magnet attracts metal. The collagen building lasers like Genesis or Lux 1540 fractional stimulate collagen production and improve texture of the skin.
