Our Palomar Icon IPL treatments utilize The Skintel Melanin Reader, which determines the average melanin density of skin. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps us better choose the treatment settings on our systems for enhanced outcomes, while minimizing risk of over-treatment. That means that it is safe to use on any skin type.

IPL, short for intense pulsed light, is a popular treatment that is best-known for its ability to treat vascular conditions like broken capillaries ("spider veins") and the brown spots or "age spots" caused by sun damage. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, which plumps up the skin and gives you a fresher look.
IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin's surface, damaging either the melanin that makes up brown "age spots" or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone. IPL is also touted as a way to boost collagen and elastin.

It generally takes a series of treatments to see the best results, perhaps three to six treatments, usually a month apart.
