Icon Q & A

What is the Icon laser platform?

The Icon laser system is an innovative platform that offers a wide variety of aesthetic treatments using both intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser technology. The outstanding team at SkinScience and Wellness uses the Icon to address a broad range of skin concerns in adults of all ages, skin tones, and skin types.

How do Icon laser treatments work?

The Icon is equipped with seven handpieces and precision settings to deliver focused light energy to the deep layers of your skin, without harming your skin’s surface. This concentrated energy boosts circulation, breaks down pigment and blemishes, and stimulates the production of new collagen. 

By enhancing cell metabolism, the Icon offers maximum skin rejuvenation and revitalization in a few short treatments.

Which Icon treatments are available?

The experts at SkinScience and Wellness have the training and experience to address many common skin complaints. Some of the Icon treatment options available include:

Scar removal

The Icon targets scar tissue, breaking it up at the cellular level. Your immune system then eliminates the scar tissue naturally over time.

Stretch mark removal

Stretch marks are thin lines of scar tissue that form when changes in your weight cause your skin to stretch. The Icon can break down these lines while promoting the development of new skin cells to replace your stretch marks.

Laser hair removal

The Icon can permanently destroy the hair follicles that produce unwanted body hair, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Unlike electrolysis, laser hair removal isn’t painful.

Skin revitalization 

This multifaceted treatment can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and other visible signs of aging. It can also address facial veins, rosacea, and other skin blemishes.

How many Icon laser treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you require depends on which Icon laser treatment you’re having performed and other individual factors. 

Following your consultation, your SkinScience and Wellness specialist creates a custom treatment plan designed to achieve optimal results. 

Is there downtime with Icon treatments?

The Icon system is noninvasive and non-ablative, so there’s no downtime required following your procedure. Mild redness or irritation may occur around the treated area, but they typically subside within 24 hours.
