ICON Q & A

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is one of the premier fractional laser treatment systems available today. It consists of several handpieces to administer a variety of aesthetic treatments to help you look your best. The laser energy stimulates your skin to boost natural healing and collagen development.

What skin concerns can the Icon laser treat?

The Icon laser is effective for numerous skin concerns. You may use it to address:

Unwanted hair

The Icon laser provides permanent, effective hair removal in just a few sessions. The laser energy penetrates your outer layer of skin to destroy the hair follicles beneath so hair can no longer grow. Treat your underarms, bikini line, chin, upper lip, arms, or legs.

Skin rejuvenation

Fractional laser technology stimulates your skin to produce more collagen, a skin-strengthening compound. As a result, lines, wrinkles, scars, and age spots disappear and you’re left with a smoother, more evenly toned complexion. The Icon can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

IPL phototherapy

Intense pulsed light (IPL) breaks up discoloration, sun damage, and visible veins. The gentle pulses of light target unwanted skin discoloration due to rosacea, broken capillaries, and age spots.

Do Icon laser treatments hurt?

An Icon laser treatment may be slightly uncomfortable, but most women tolerate the treatment quite well. You feel some heat and tingling as the energy glides over your skin. Dr. Nevils can offer a topical numbing cream for treatment areas to ease sensation during your session.

Icon laser treatments are noninvasive, meaning you need no injections and suffer no incisions or blood loss. As a result, downtime following treatments is minimal and usually less than one day. Talk to Dr. Nevils about what to expect following your specific Icon treatments sessions.

How many Icon laser treatments will I need?

The exact number of treatments you’ll need depends on your goals. Most women benefit from 4-6 visits. Dr. Nevils establishes a treatment plan that’s customized to your needs.
