Icon Aesthetic Laser and Treatments Q & A
What is the ICON laser?
The ICON laser delivers energy to the skin through high precision microbeams. The light penetrates the skin’s deepest layers, causing the skin to repair itself by producing more collagen and elastin, which are compounds that give skin its strong, tight, and smooth appearance.
It works on all skin types and colors. Most sessions last an hour or less and require minimal downtime.
What skin conditions can the ICON laser treat?
Dr. Esla uses the ICON laser to address a number of different aesthetic issues. These include:
- Facial vein removal
- Skin resurfacing
- Sun spot removal
- Laser hair removal
- Scar removal
- Stretch mark removal
How does the ICON laser improve the appearance of aging skin?
In just one treatment, the ICON laser reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It stimulates the regeneration of new skin, so you look like you — only younger. There’s no surgery or injections, so you recover in as little as four days.
What results can I expect with ICON laser hair removal?
ICON laser energy destroys hair at the cellular level, so it can’t grow back. After a few simple treatments, you permanently rid yourself of unwanted body and facial hair, and it won’t grow back as it does with shaving or waxing.
How does the ICON laser affect scars and stretch marks?
The ICON laser greatly improves the appearance of stretch marks and scars, and sometimes eradicates them completely. The fractional laser energy that’s delivered to the skin targets discoloration and stimulates the production of new collagen to improve the skin’s texture. In the case of scars, the fractional energy breaks down scar tissue and encourages the production of new, smoother tissue.
The number of treatments you need depends on the extent of your stretch marks or scars. Usually three to five treatments are enough, but Dr. Esla develops a plan specific to you.
What is skin resurfacing with the ICON laser?
ICON laser treatments enhance the look of your skin and its texture. It improves any irregularities, such as age spots, sun damage, and acne scars. You also experience improvements in skin tone and elasticity.
