ICON 1540 Laser

Rejuvenating and refreshing the appearance of your skin without the need for downtime is easier than it’s ever been with the Icon 1540 Laser.

ICON 1540 Laser

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.

ICON 1540 Laser Treatments: What patients need to know.

It’s important to remember that every individual is unique and so too are their needs and desired outcomes for cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering a procedure, it’s essential to have a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. They can help you understand whether you’re a suitable candidate and what you can realistically expect from the surgery. The information provided here is meant to help guide you, but it’s not a replacement for professional medical advice. Always organise a consultation for personalised advice.

If you are concerned about the way you look or are thinking about cosmetic surgery for confidence reasons, there are alternatives. Talking to a counsellor or psychologist may help you overcome your concerns about your appearance.

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

What to expect

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.

Laser treatment general risks and complications:

Skin Burns: There's a risk of burns, particularly if the treatment isn't performed by a skilled practitioner or if the incorrect settings are used for a patient's specific skin type.
Hyperpigmentation and Hypopigmentation: After laser treatment, some individuals may experience changes in skin color. Hyperpigmentation is a darkening of the skin, while hypopigmentation is a lightening of the skin.
Infections: Open wounds after laser treatments can potentially lead to infections if not appropriately cared for.
Scarring: Although rare, scarring can occur post-procedure, particularly with more aggressive laser treatments.
Eye Injuries: Without appropriate eye protection, lasers can cause temporary or permanent vision damage.
Blistering and Crusting: Some patients may experience blistering or crusting of the skin following laser treatment.
Blistering and Crusting: Some patients may experience blistering or crusting of the skin following laser treatment.
Allergic Reactions: Allergic reactions to the topical anesthetics or other products used in conjunction with the laser treatment could occur.

Most patients experience minimal downtime, with some mild redness and swelling for a few days. Since these treatments are fractionated and less invasive, 3-5 sessions are generally recommended for full results, performed every 4-6 weeks.
Many patients will see a positive change within 3-8 weeks after the first treatment. Optimal results usually occur after 2 to 3 months, which allows for complete healing and replacement of new collagen and elastin.Results vary with individual factors and can be enhanced using recommended home products and excellent sun protection.
The ICON 1540 treatments are more effective if performed in a series of sessions.Each session treats approximately 20 – 25 % of the skin and clinical studies indicate that an effective treatment regimen involves 3 to 5 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.Certain conditions, such as severe acne scarring may require more treatments for optimal results.
During the first 24 hours after treatment, the skin may feel mildly sunburnt, sensitive, and somewhat swollen.Over the next few days, the skin may appear slightly bronzed, which can be easily covered with makeup. There may be some flaking, which can be improved by using a moisturiser.
The ICON 1540 can be used on scars and stretch marks anywhere on the face or body. However, when used to address fine lines and skin texture, the best results are seen when used on the face.
