The Icon Laser: Delivering the Most Popular Treatments
“Cynosure’s Icon Aesthetic System is truly one of the most impressive laser treatments I’ve come across,” says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kyle Song. “This laser treatment is ideal for our most requested services: revealing a glowing complexion, silky smooth skin, and wrinkle reduction.” The Icon Laser can treat a range of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Hair removal
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Pigment clearance
- Minimization of stretch marks
- Minimization of sun damage
- Facial vessel clearance
- And more!
The Icon Laser provides excellent results for a wide variety of issues, making this one of the hardest-working cosmetic lasers on the market today.
How Does the Icon Laser Work?
Cynosure’s Icon Aesthetic System uses non-ablative fractional resurfacing settings to penetrate and deliver powerful light energy to multiple dermis layers. Not only does this speed up the treatment process, but it also effectively minimizes cosmetic concerns with fewer procedures.
The Icon laser features a revolutionary melanin reader, which allows the technology to accurately target and treat hyperpigmentation. Contact Cooling ensures that the patient is entirely comfortable throughout the procedure.
What Can I Expect From my Icon Treatment?
The Icon Aesthetic System laser is a non-invasive procedure that can treat multiple areas of the body. Depending on your actual treatment, your procedure can be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
Introducing the ThreeForMe Treatment Option
ThreeForMe treatment is exclusively done using Cynosure Icon technology. This treatment is performed in two stages. The first step will utilize Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, in order to address sun damage, broken capillaries, and hyperpigmentation. The second step uses the Icon laser’s microbeam technology to gently resurface the skin. This second stage can result in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other textural imperfections.
The ThreeForMe treatment is quick and easy, taking approximately 30 minutes to perform. There is minimal downtime associated with the treatment and your results will continue to improve over the course of six months. ThreeForMe is a great option if you are looking to address multiple skin concerns with a single treatment.
What’s Recovery Like?
Recovery depends on the treatment you’re opting for; however, most patients can expect their skin to be sensitive, red, and slightly swollen for a couple of weeks after the procedure. You’ll need to wear sunscreen, as skin will be particularly sensitive to sunlight.
