Palomar’s Deep IR Joins Zimmer Chiller for Quick Painless Skin Tightening
Palomar Icon Aesthetic System
MaxIR: Deep infrared heating on areas such as the neck, abdomen, and legs, and soft tissue coagulation
A broadband infrared light source with an output spectrum filtered to optimize energy penetration into deep dermis and hypodermis is used. Contact surface cooling is employed to prevent epidermal damage and shift the lattice of high temperature into deeper layers of tissue. Clinical data indicate potential of the technique as a novel non-invasive modality for skin tightening.
Our Palomar Deep IR laser is the newest, state of the art technology in skin tightening. Perfect for patients who want to avoid the pain, expense, and downtime associated with surgery. This non-invasive technology uses infrared heat to stimulate collagen and results in tighter, more youthful looking skin. Our Deep IR uses the most advanced cooling system to cool the surface of the skin better than older technologies using radiofrequency (such as Thermage). This allows the use of higher energies to penetrate deeper into the skin for more impressive results. See our previous blog regarding the new Zimmer “chiller” that may be used for pain free treatments with all of our laser platforms.
