About The Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
The Palomar Icon Aesthetic System builds on Palomar’s 20 year history of creating quality aesthetic technology. The platform itself is powerful and compact, offering a max power of 1600 VA. Offering nine applicators, this system is modular and able to perform common treatments such as hair removal, leg vein treatment, wrinkle treatment, and fractional ablative and non-ablative skin resurfacing. Unfortunately there is no application for lipolysis available. The us
er interface screen is relatively small but includes treatment tracking software to improve feedback during treatment.
The Palomar System includes the only FDA- cleared melanin reader available. Known as Skintel, this reader allows quantitative determination of the average melanin density of the skin prior to treatment. The system also takes advantage of increased surface coverage over its competitors allowing for greater overall effective energy and faster treatment time. The Palomar system can complete a full face single pass high speed non-ablative fractional resurfacing in less than fifteen minutes.
Overall patient comfort is optimized by adjustable cooling technology. By maintaining a treatment temperature of five degrees Celsius skin damage is minimized and your patient is more comfortable. In addition, dual filters minimize excess epidermal exposure and further enhance patient comfort.
Used Palomar Icon Systems are available online, however quantities are limited. Pricing varies depending upon the age and configuration of the machine.
