Icon Laser Q & A

What is the Icon Laser?

The Icon Laser offers multiple laser energy intensities in one treatment device. Dr. Dhar can control the intensity of the laser energy, so it effectively addresses a wide range of skin conditions. The laser energy penetrates beneath your skin’s surface to promote the production of collagen, a skin-strengthening compound that leads to greater elasticity, strength, tone, and texture.

What skin conditions can the Icon Laser address?

The Icon Laser offers comprehensive treatment for a wide range of skin conditions. These include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scarring
  • Surgical or injury scars
  • Photodamage (damage caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation)
  • Small facial veins
  • Leg veins

Dr. Dhar can create a customized treatment plan according to your aesthetic goals.

How does the Icon Laser reduce wrinkles and lines?

The Icon Laser uses ablative fractional laser technology that penetrates deep into your skin. The energy stimulates your skin’s regeneration, so you end up with fresh, new skin that looks smoother and tighter. Recovery from wrinkle-reducing treatments can occur in as little as four days.

How does the Icon Laser treat stretch marks and scarring?

The Icon Laser’s fractional laser technology targets the discoloration of stretch marks. The production of new collagen that results from the treatment smooths roughness. Plan on between three and five treatments to effectively improve your skin’s consistency.

Similarly, the Icon Laser helps boost collagen production to smooth scars caused by acne or other issues. The laser breaks down scar tissue and triggers the production of new, fresh, smooth skin.

How does Icon treat photodamage?

Exposure to ultraviolet light can cause damage to your skin, including discoloration. Icon delivers gentle pulses of intense light to regions with darker pigment, breaking up the discoloration and leading an evener skin tone.

This technology effectively reduces the appearance of:

  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Spider veins
  • Broken capillaries
  • Cherry angiomas (red moles)

The same technology makes Icon effective in treating minor leg veins, such as spider veins and reticular veins without surgery or downtime.
