The Icon MaxG ® technology is optimal for clearing pigment and vessels. Absorption of dual wavelengths targets hemoglobin to reduce vessels and melanin to reduce pigment (sun spots). Sun damage is effectively and safely reduced with minimal discomfort because of the Icon MaxG ® built-in hand-piece cooling. This light-based technology targets the pigment and vessels in the skin clearing the evidence of aging. The vessels associated with rosacea also improve dramatically with this treatment.
Skintel ® Technology
A skin questionnaire helps to determine skin type on the Fitzpatrick scale. In addition to this, CynoSure Icon Max ® has technology to supplement clinical evaluation. The Skintel ® technology, a melanin reader exclusive to the CynoSure® system, eliminates guess work and subjectivity of skin type assessment. An average of several Skintel® measurements near treatment areas appear on the device. Wireless transmission of the melanin index to the laser system allows more accurate assessment of treatment settings. Settings are further refined by performing a test spot.
The MaxG® optimized pulse light treatment is a great fit for patients who have sun damage, but don’t want a week of down time for other modalities such as MiXto® CO2 Laser skin resurfacing. On the other hand, with a week of social down time, combination therapy with the MaxG® and CO2 laser resurfacing are combined for maximal rejuvenation of the skin. Combined treatment provides improved skin appearance by 1) reduction of pigment and vessels by the MaxG®, and 2) smoothing of wrinkles, tightening of skin, and soft skin texture by the MiXto® CO2 resurfacing. Remarkable cosmetic results are experienced with little or no social down time (five to seven days) with combined treatment.
Why cover and conceal, when you can have glowing rejuvenated skin? One treatment shows remarkable results with reduction of vessels and pigment. Some patients require more than one treatment. NO DOWN TIME.
