What Is the Icon™ Laser?
This treatment combines the power of an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser and a fractional laser. The Icon™ laser has a variety of attachments that can help with different issues for the skin. IPL is commonly used to even out skin tone and can be used all over the body. It is great for treating sun damage and skin conditions like rosacea. Fractional lasers are non-ablative, making them much more gentle for your skin than traditional lasers. They are great for reducing scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, etc. When combined, you end up with smoother, more even skin with fewer imperfections.
The Icon™ laser will be placed on the skin you want treated where it will pulse. It will be picked up and placed on the skin adjacent to the area just treated, in a stamping technique. After finishing, moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to the skin.
Each treatment session is typically short, usually less than an hour. The number of sessions necessary will depend on what type of conditions are being treated as well as the size of the area. Generally speaking, you will need 3 to 5 treatments to achieve your optimal results. Treatment sessions should be spaced out, roughly 3 to 4 weeks apart. Biannual touch-up treatments can be useful for maintaining your results down the line.
