Icon Laser Treatments Q&A


How can Icon treatments help with hair removal?

Icon treatments are a highly effective method of permanent hair reduction. Icon hair removal is becoming increasingly popular because it offers a long-term alternative to constant shaving, repeated waxing, or time-consuming electrolysis. Icon laser can be used for both body and facial hair. It’s often used on the legs, in the underarm area, in the bikini line area, and on the upper lip. The Icon targets and destroys the individual hair cells, rendering them incapable of growing new hair. This system is particularly popular because it doesn’t damage the surrounding skin during treatment and because it can be used on any type of skin. Treatments take only about 30 minutes in most cases. Most patients need to have several sessions, as this allows hair to be treated during all of its growth cycles.

How does Icon laser treatment for skin resurfacing work?

The Icon laser is a popular skin resurfacing option because it can address multiple skin issues at one time. Problems like poor skin tone, rough skin texture, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, large pores, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars can all be treated with the Icon laser system. Laser energy microbeams are precisely directed into the deeper layers of the dermis, which prompts the skin to start repairing itself while creating new collagen. The damaged and dead skin is gently removed during treatment, which allows the healthy skin below to emerge. Many people who opt for skin resurfacing with the Icon laser system have multiple skin concerns, and this treatment allows for a more youthful and glowing look overall. Treatment sessions usually last less than 60 minutes.

How can Icon laser treatments help with acne scars?

The Icon laser offers an easy and highly effective option for acne scar reduction and removal. In this type of treatment, fractional laser light is used to break apart the scar tissue built up beneath the skin. This prompts the skin cells to start making a new supply of collagen, which will then rise up to help fill in the scar depressions and smooth out the skin. Icon laser treatments can be used on anyone, regardless of their skin type.
