Women and men have new options for improving the look and feel of their skin. Nowadays, your physician can give you a virtual face-lift with the help a number of sophisticated aesthetic technologies. These technologies continue to evolve, making skin resurfacing procedures and facial rejuvenation safer, faster and more effective than ever. At Elite Vein & Hair Restoration, we offer Icon™ to help you rediscover comfort in your image!
What is Icon™?
The Icon™ Aesthetic System is a new device that was designed and built by the aesthetic laser company called Cynosure. The system can treat and improve practically any sign of aging on the skin. These include fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, and the list goes on.
At the same time, it can be used for the treatment and reduction of stretch marks, surgical scars, acne scars, varicose veins, and spider veins. On top of that, it can be used to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair on the face and other areas of the body. These treatments can all be accomplished with one machine.
How Icon™ Works
There are two reasons Icon™ can help with so many skin conditions. The first is the onboard fractional laser that can be used for procedures like severe acne scarring, tattoo removal, hair removal, spider veins, and wart removal. The fractional laser works by heating up skin tissue, destroying the cells and forcing the body to create new ones. This has a rejuvenating and healing effect and can be the solution for many skin-related aesthetic treatments.
The second reason the machine is so versatile is the intense pulsed light (IPL) technology it carries as well. IPL technology is used to send intense, targeted, broad spectrum light beams into the area of the body being treated. IPL is used to improve sun-damaged skin, remove unwanted hair, unwanted skin pigmentation, acne scars and more.
When these two technologies are combined, there is almost no limit to what skin conditions can be treated. This one device saves a lot of room in a doctor’s office or clinic. Multiple devices and peripherals are usually needed to treat all of these skin conditions within one practice.
Can Icon™ Help You?
The Icon™ device can be used on every skin type because of its considerate and careful design. Since there are two kinds of light-based technologies available on one device, Cynosure made sure the machine could be calibrated to suit each individual.
The darker the skin, the more light will be absorbed by it. This is why many laser and light treatments in the past were avoided by women and men with darker skin tones. With the revolutionary technology called the Skintel Melanin Reader, the risks are avoided. The system can detect melanin levels and adjust the intensity of the laser automatically.
