Sun Damage Q & A

What is the Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL treatment?

Dr. Polavaram uses the Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL system for sun damage treatment at Cary Laser Aesthetics.  With this highly advanced IPL technology, Dr. Polavaram can target sun damage of all types.

How does sun damage treatment work?

Dr. Polavaram uses a handpiece to carefully send controlled light pulses directly into the areas where you have sun damage. The light shatters the targeted pigment to eliminate your freckles and sunspots.

Additionally, Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL treatment stimulates new collagen growth in the deeper layers of your skin. Over time, your new collagen shifts upward to smooth out fine lines and improve your skin texture overall. Most patients find the treatment easy-to-tolerate and comfortable.

Am I a good candidate for sun damage treatment?

If your skin is aging, or simply looking less than its best due to sun exposure, sun damage treatment with the Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL system may be perfect for you. This treatment can help with rough texture, redness, brown spots, freckles, and fine lines caused by sun exposure.

Many patients who choose sun damage treatment with the Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL system find that it's the perfect way to roll back the clock on their skin, without having to have invasive procedures or surgery.

How many sun damage treatments do I need?

It depends on the extent of your sun damage and what your specific skin problems or concerns are. Most patients enjoy maximum results after a series of treatments, with every treatment session at least a couple of weeks apart.

What can I expect after sun damage treatment?

After Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL sun damage treatment, you'll likely have mildly reddened skin, similar to a minor sunburn, for anywhere from 2-24 hours. Some patients also experience mild swelling, but this abates quickly as well.

There's no downtime after Cynosure Icon MaxG IPL sun damage treatment. You can return to your usual routine as soon as you're ready after treatment. However, it's important to stay out of the sun and to use gentle skin care products to maintain your results long-term.
