Skin changes are a natural part of the aging process, made worse by issues such as sun damage. But just because wrinkles, sagging, and age spots are natural doesn’t mean that you have to live with them. The Icon™ laser system provides a powerful way to restore your skin’s vibrance, without the need for incisions or downtime.

How the Icon laser works
The Icon laser is a fractional, state-of-the-art laser designed for skin resurfacing and the treatment of commonly bothersome issues affecting the face. Its ablative fractional laser technology delivers broad-spectrum light energy deep into your skin, which stimulates regeneration. This process can help minimize a range of skin issues, including:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Facial lines and creases
- Facial blood vessels, or spider veins
- Surgical scars
What makes the Icon laser a top choice
The Icon laser’s amazing capabilities for facial skin revitalization make it a great choice when you’re considering rejuvenation procedures. Here’s why:
No surgery or lengthy downtime
Unlike more invasive treatments, such as face-lift surgery, Icon laser treatment is performed in an office setting, and it comes without the risks or lengthy downtime associated with surgery and anesthesia. You won’t have to worry about surgical scars or taking weeks away from your usual life for recovery.
Treatment can take as little as 30 minutes, depending on the area that’s treated. From there, many people fully recover in about four days. Excellent results can be achieved within one or two treatments, but several treatments may be required for best results.
Useful on all skin types
Regardless of your complexion, Icon laser treatment can bring mighty benefits. This includes skin that’s extremely light or quite dark. The laser features a chilled tip, so any discomfort while the laser is activated during treatment is mild. This makes it ideal even for sensitive skin.
Usable on more than one issue and area per treatment
Have more than one area you’d like treated? No problem. Many people have multiple issues addressed on their face and body within a single Icon laser session. Even then, most sessions take an hour or less.
Additional issues Icon can treat, beyond the face, include:
- Removal of unwanted body hair
- Spider veins on your legs or feet
- Stretch marks from lifestyle or pregnancy-related weight changes
One of the best advantages of skin rejuvenation treatment with the Icon laser is the boost in confidence we see in our clients. Many people feel more comfortable while looking in the mirror or having a photo taken, and more like themselves.
