What is the Icon™ Laser?
The Icon™ Laser deploys light-based treatment to target all three of the skin’s layers, correcting epidermal, mid-dermal, and deep dermal issues. A light beam limits age signs affecting the skin by stimulating collagen production. Intense pulsed light therapy works to tighten the skin of the neck, chest, and face without damaging the skin’s top layer.
All laser hair removal packages have 6 session treatments
- Upper lip, chin or sides of face
- Full face, back of neck, front of neck, underarms or bikini
- Brazilian, lower or upper arms, lower or upper legs
- Full arms, full legs, and male chest or back
Frequently Asked Questions
An Icon™ Laser treatment customarily takes around 30 minutes to complete. The instrument’s light beam is passed over the skin to boost collagen production, which reverses signs of aging to the skin. The result is smoother, firmer skin, reduced marks, and improved pigmentation.
After the treatment, patients may feel minimal discomfort, much like a sunburn. Because it is a non-invasive treatment, minimal recovery period is associated with the procedure. During the recovery period, there may be temporary discoloration, swelling, and bruising.
The number of treatments required will depend on your individualized treatment plan, which will be determined by an in-depth analysis between our licensed technician and yourself. A single treatment will produce noticeable results, but additional treatments may be necessary to generate the results you want. Follow-up procedures can be scheduled four weeks apart to complete your treatment.
As collagen is regenerated following the procedure, you’ll be able to visualize the full results of your treatment about six months after your last procedure.
The FDA approved Icon™ laser uses fractional light “microbeams” to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin to effectively target skin flaws. The laser light activates the body’s elastin and collagen production to generate new healthy skin cells where the skin was previously damaged. This revolutionary laser treatment actually stimulates the skin to actually heal itself. All with little to no downtime or discomfort. The Icon laser is considered one of the best anti-aging laser treatments available today.
With proper skincare, including using sunscreen to protect against future skin damage, the results of your treatment will last for a long time.
If you suffer from irregularities, skin laxity, and pigment issues on the face, neck, and chest, Icon™ Laser treatment may be the best solution for you. This treatment doesn’t damage the skin’s outer layer, which minimizes recovery time as compared to chemical peel treatments.
