Palomar Icon by Cynosure is a top of the line complete aesthetic system with the latest laser technology that offers safe and effective results that can be performed in just minutes with you back to your daily routine the same day.

The results of this innovative technology meet or exceed current gold standard treatments. It provides a variety of aesthetic treatment options ranging from hair removal, facial vessel and pigment clearance (sun spots, melasma), surgical and acne scar treatment, non-ablative facial treatments, photofacials, and more.

XFTM Microlens: High-speed, non-ablative fractional resurfacing with increased surface coverage typically allows for a full face, one-pass treatment in less than 15 minutes.

XDTM Microlens: Non-ablative fractional resurfacing that uses point compression and a unique lens design to allow for a greater depth of penetration.

  • AccuSpectrumTM: Dual filters minimize unnecessary epidermal exposure, enhancing client comfort.
  • Photon RecyclingTM: Maximizes treatment results by reducing energy loss.
  • Smooth PulseTM: Proprietary light delivery system that allows for the usage of greater amounts of energy.
  • Power: Delivering a maximum effective energy of over 350 joules, Icon is the most powerful laser and optimized light aesthetic platform.

What to Expect With Treatment

When you choose the Palomar Icon by Cynosure as your aesthetic system you will need to take a few steps before your treatment.

At least 4 weeks prior to your appointment, discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment. Also, be sure to remove all makeup and lotions prior to the treatment.

When you come in for your treatment, Dr. Patel and his staff will go over the procedure with you and explain each step so your are comfortable throughout the process. Depending on the size of the area, treatments can take just minutes.

Before the optimized pulsed light handpiece is used, a gel is applied to your skin where you will receive treatment. You will also be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the light during treatment.

The treatment will begin with Dr. Patel guiding the Icon™ handpiece over the treatment area. The handpiece will provide a cooling sensation for increased comfort throughout the procedure. You may also feel a slight rubber-band like snapping when the energy is being delivered into your skin which disappears almost immediately. Generally, patients experience a warm sensation after treatment.

To reduce this warming sensation, a cooling gel may be applied to your skin after treatment. Due to the minimally invasive nature of this procedure, no bandages or ointments are necessary. Although you may feel as though you have a sunburn for a few days, you can resume your normal day to day activities immediately following treatment.

Dr Patel saved my vision. I cannot thank him enough! The first week of January I suffered a pretty horrific eye injury playing Dek Hockey. I was struck directly in my left eye by a hard plastic ball traveling at 30-40mph. I was immediately blind in my left eye as it filled with blood. I went to the ER at ORMC and Dr Patel was called when it was determined by CT scan that I had a 5mm tear on my eyeball on the back side. He arrived to the hospital very quickly after they called him. He took me to surgery and repaired my torn eyeball. Discharged me at 330am and saw me back at his office for a follow up 7hrs later. He referred me to a retina specialist for further evaluation. I’m happy to say that not only has my vision returned as of yesterday I’m 20/25 in an eye that I was blind in not too long ago. He’s amazing. Thank you Dr Patel for being there 24/7 for those in need of your services!!
