Rejuvenating and refreshing the appearance of your skin without the need for downtime is easier than it’s ever been.

What exactly is ICON 1540?

Rejuvenating and refreshing the appearance of your skin without the need for downtime is easier than it’s ever been.

ICON 1540 is an advanced non-ablative fractional laser system that is designed to resurface the skin, remove wrinkles and age spots and create a firmer, younger appearance after just a few sessions. The laser is able to reverse some of the common signs of ageing by increasing collagen production, which plumps the skin and improves laxity.

ICON 1540 laser treatments are recommended for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, scarring and hyperpigmentation or rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. Since the system uses different microlenses, treatments can be customised to meet each patient’s needs.

What to Expect During Your ICON 1540 Treatment

Once it has been determined that you’re an ideal candidate for this treatment, your skin will be prepared and you’ll be given a pair of protective eyewear.
During your 15 to 30 minute treatment, the ICON laser tip will be activated and moved across the surface of your skin. In some cases, the laser might need to be moved over the same area a second time. Patients can expect to feel some mild discomfort but cold packs will be applied to the skin to alleviate this.

As the light from the laser penetrates the deeper layers of your skin, it stimulates collagen production and healthy cell activity, while also breaking up any damaged or pigmented cells. Patients are left with tighter, smoother, more even skin.

ICON 1540 Laser Treatments: What patients need to know.

  • A series of treatments will be required. To achieve optimal results, it’s recommended that patients undergo at least 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart
  • Suitable for most skin types. ICON 1540 treatments are suitable for most skin types but can cause pigmentation on darker skin. It will be determined whether you are an ideal candidate during your consultation
  • Redness and swelling can be expected. Patients can expect their skin to look slightly red and swollen following their treatment but these side effects will dissipate within a few hours. However, sometimes side effects can last for several days, in which case you may want to take a day or two off work
  • Multiple areas can be treated. Along with treating the face, ICON 1540 treatments are also ideal for the neck, hands, stomach, arms, brows and eye area
  • Results will be gradual. Patients can expect their skin to gradually improve over the next 6 weeks
