What is Cynosure Icon 1064+ Handpiece?
The Cynosure Icon 1064+ handpiece is indicated for the treatment of smaller red vessels and larger blue leg veins. It’s also very effective for the removal of unwanted hair in different body areas. This handpiece is not only powerful but also versatile because it is compatible with Palomar Starlux 300 and Palomar Starlux 500.
How does Cynosure Icon 1064+ Handpiece Work?
The Cynosure Icon 1064+ handpiece emits highly controlled laser energy into areas of skin imperfection. After a few seconds, it increases the temperature within the abnormal blood vessel causing it to collapse and shrink. The laser-induced heat also boosts the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin undergoes cell renewal process, replacing old skin cells with new healthy cells. Over time, the treated area becomes smoother, healthier, and free from unsightly veins.
In order to achieve permanent hair removal, the Cynosure Icon 1064+ handpiece directly targets hair follicles. Once absorbed by the skin, the laser energy is converted into heat energy which uniformly heats the structures of the hair follicle. By damaging these structures, the hair follicles in the area lose their ability to regrow hair. With additional treatments, the area becomes smoother and completely free from unwanted hair.
What Skin Types can Cynosure 1064+ Treat?
Doctors recommend using the handpiece in patients with skin type 5 (brown to dark brown) and type 6 (dark brown to black) who have unsightly vessels and unwanted hair.
