Palomar Icon Aesthetic System

Some information about the Palomar Icon system from the upcoming Comparative Report for Aesthetic Laser Platforms.

We're writing a new report for Members that compares the most used aesthetic laser platforms. One of the most popular platforms, at least in the US, is the Palomar Icon.

There are always discussions around the Palomar Icon and other cosmetic lasers in the forums.

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.

I've been using Palomar's systems since about 2002 and, while they're expensive, I've never had any real complaints other than the price. I think that they're heads and tails above Cynosure and Syneron (though I haven't owned these platforms).

I think that's the machine my nurse used for my laser hair removal. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for me. I think it was mostly because of my skin and hair color combination. I'm sure the machine is great!

Palomar is overpriced IMHO. I would suggest that you take a look at some of the Sciton products. I'll be interested in reading a comparison though.

This type of machine is already a 10 yr old state that is present in our market already. There should be a guarantee on how this one works and some improvements according to its feature on how it will be efficiently used, right?
