The Palomar Icon NG Yag (1064) hand piece assists in the removal of spider veins and angiomas on legs and body. Results can be compared to or used in conjunction with sclerotherapy depending on vessel size. Two to three treatments are required with intervals of eight to twelve weeks.
Light-based permanent hair reduction can remove hair from the face, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini area and legs. The light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding tissue. The Palomar Icon hair removal hand pieces utilise state-of-the-art cooling to perform a comfortable and quick procedure, whilst optimising the procedure with high potency treatment for excellent results. A course of six treatments is recommended with intervals of between three to eight weeks, depending on hair growth and area of treatment.

We prepared a skin diagram, on the right, where you can hover over the dots in each level. The left focusses on skin concerns and on the right we target the concerns with MASC treatments.
Epidermal concerns (top layer of the skin) often include, but are not limited to, irregular hyperpigmentation (freckled or darker marks), texture changes and post-inflammatory pigmentation often caused by breakouts. Treatments may include superficial chemical peels, Environ DF lonzyme treatments or TCA peels (this removes the entire epidermis).
Dermal concerns include the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and deeper acne scarring. The degradation of the network of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid often leads to more pronounced signs of ageing and can also affect the overall appearance (texture) of the skin. Treatments such as medical needling (Dermapen) and non-ablative laser create controlled channels of injury to re-stimulate the production of collagen within the dermis, leading to reduction of fine lines, scarring and improved skin texture.
