Cynosure® Palomar Icon™ 1540 Fractional Laser

Laser Skin Treatments with the Cynosure® Palomar Icon™ 1540 Fractional Laser

North Shore Aesthetics is proud to provide laser skin rejuvenation treatments with the Palomar Icon™ laser with the 1540 handpiece. This non-ablative, fractional laser effectively rejuvenates damaged, tired, and aging facial skin and on the body.

A part of the Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System by Cynosure®, the Icon™ 1540 laser effectively treats and resolves hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, thinning skin, loss of firmness, uneven texture, surgical scars, acne scars, melasma, and even addresses stretch marks.

What Makes the Palomar Icon™ 1540 Fractional Laser Unique?

No other laser of this kind is approved by the FDA for the treatment of scars and stretch marks.

  • The XF Microlens™ is ideal for high-speed treatment sessions that cover a large surface area.
  • The XD Microlens™ point compression and unique lens design are perfect for addressing tough to reach areas such as scars and greater depth of penetration.


The Palomar Icon™ laser is also equipped with the Skintel Melanin Reader. Unlike many other lasers on the market, the melanin reader creates “custom to you” treatments by reading the levels of melanin in your skin.

ThreeForMe Treatment

ThreeForMe is a laser treatment exclusively performed with the Cynosure Palomar Icon™ system. This revolutionary treatment is proven to reduce and remove sun damage as well as ordinary and acne scarring.

This treatment combines the proven technologies of the Palomar Icon™ 1540 and Max G handpieces to deliver the benefits of both in one simple treatment – in two passes. The first pass treats discoloration with intense pulsed light (IPL). The second pass addresses wrinkles and fine lines with fractional laser technology, stimulating collagen growth to promote firm, glowing skin.

ThreeForMe is safe, quick, and convenient treatment option that provides the best results and fits into your busy schedule. This gentle, non-invasive treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and has minimal social downtime. The total appointment time for each session is approximately 60 minutes. A typical course of treatment requires 1-3 sessions in intervals of 4-6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who should seek treatment with the Icon™ 1540 Laser handpiece?

    Depending on your specific case, the Icon™ 1540 laser can be recommended for patients needing treatment for melasma, stretch marks, scarring, and signs of aging or damaged skin. In your consultation with our aesthetician, or our Medical Director Dr. Benjamin Schlechter, we will discuss your needs and determine if a treatment with the Icon™ 1540 is right for you.

  • What does an Icon™ 1540 Session Include?

    For most cases, an Icon™ 1540 treatment session will last for 15–30 minutes. The handheld device is placed against the treatment area and delivers pulses or microbeams of light into the skin.

    The laser will then be repositioned to adjacent areas of the skin to deliver the light pulses in non-overlapping stages. The light energy stimulates fibroblasts to create collagen and generate new, healthy skin tissue to replace the damaged, discolored, or aging skin.

    Patients will usually achieve the best results with a series of two to four treatment sessions spaced four weeks apart, followed by biannual touch-ups to maintain their skin.

    Various Microlenses make it possible to customize the treatments according to the degree and type of correction patients need.

  • What are the benefits of Icon 1540™ Laser treatments?

    • Rejuvenated, re-toned, smooth skin
    • Minimal downtime after the treatment
    • Recovery time is only 3-7 days after the treatment*
    • Treatments can also be combined with IPL treatments.

    *You may experience some puffiness and redness for up to 48 hours

  • What results can I expect?

    Results from treatment with the Icon™ 1540 laser vary depending on the specific necessity for the treatment, the area treated, and your skin quality and age. We will create a customized treatment plan designed to meet your needs.

    Noticeable results can be seen after just one treatment. After about three weeks, many patients notice that their skin is more even in tone and smooth in texture. Following several treatment sessions, there will be an even more noticeable difference in the appearance and texture of your skin. You will notice improvement to melasma, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, even pore size.
