ICON Laser Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is Icon?

Icon is a skin rejuvenation system, combining IPL (intense pulse light) and non-ablative fractional laser, to treat skin irregularities such as brown face and body discoloration, age spots or lesions, red areas like rosacea, sun damage or blood vessels, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment leaves you with a smooth glowing young looking appearance. In addition, it can treat acne scarring, body scars, and stretch marks. The Icon uses non-ablative fractional laser technology stimulating regeneration.

Icon works on all skin types, from very fair to very dark, and doesn’t bring any of the side effects associated with invasive surgical procedures.

How does Icon laser treatment work?

The Icon fractional laser uses energy microbeams. This pulsed energy extends into your skin and triggers your body’s natural healing processes, leading to the creation of renewed, healthier tissue and stimulating collagen production.

This is important because collagen production reduces as you age, reducing smoothness and firmness. Icon helps restore lost collagen, creating a more youthful look.

How long does an Icon laser treatment take?

The time needed for your Icon laser treatment depends on a variety of factors, such as your treatment goals, the size of the treatment area, and your skin type. Some sessions are as short as a few minutes, with a full face treatment taking about 30 min. The number of treatments you’ll need also varies depending on goals and areas requiring treatment.

After your Icon skin rejuvenation treatment, your skin will feel sensitive. Most patients fully recover within 2-3 days. Post-treatment care with proper washing and topicals can be essential for maximizing a fantastic outcome.

Dr. Beckerman works closely with you to customize the ideal treatment and post-treatment plan. She takes her time to get to know her clients and their goals and the specifics of your treatment plan that will help you look your best.
