What Type of Skin Concerns Are Treated with IPL ICON MAXG?

Three things I've learnedRosacea

IPL ICON MAXG reduces the overall redness, flushing, and tiny blood vessels associated with the condition and often improves the frequent acne breakouts.

Sun damage to the face (photo-aging)

IPL ICON MAXG removes sun damage and reduces freckling and irregular blotchy brown pigmentation.

Sun damage to the chest and back (photo-aging)

Photo Rejuvenation corrects sun-damaged skin while reducing freckles and irregular blotchy pigmentation on the chest, back, and shoulders. It improves the overall appearance of over-exposed sun-damaged skin.

Sun damage to the hands and arms (photo-aging, also called “age and liver spots”)

Photo Rejuvenation removes the freckling and irregular pigmentation on the hands, and even the arms. It also improves the thin-skin appearance of sun-damaged hands.

What Should I Expect at my IPL ICON MAXG?

Then a layer of cooling numbing gel is applied to the face prior to the light pulse. Specific parameters are selected for each treatment depending on your skin evaluation, your skin type, and characteristics, and the extent of your skin damage to achieve optimal results. You will be lying comfortably while our licensed aesthetician delivers a series of gentle pulses of a special light to the skin, in a non-invasive and safe manner. The procedure is typically very well tolerated with minimal discomfort.

How Much Downtime is Involved After an IPL ICON MAXG?

IPL ICON MAXG is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you will immediately be able to return to work, apply make-up, and resume daily activities. We recommend that you avoid direct sun exposure and exposure to heat, such as hot tubs. Immediately following the treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and brown spots may appear darker for a short time. These changes gradually fade over a few hours to a few days as your skin heals. Makeup can be applied immediately following the procedure if necessary, so it is possible to return straight back to work.

When Will I See Results?

Even after your first treatment, your skin can look smoother and will have a more even skin tone. Improvement is gradual and will continue to be more visible after each treatment. Many individuals experience dramatic results only after 1-2 treatments; however, four to six treatments are recommended for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional yearly maintenance treatments.
