What are ICON laser treatments?

Cynosure’s ICON laser offers a nonsurgical treatment option for correcting or minimizing cosmetic flaws* ICON laser treatments can address scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and pigmentation problems by stimulating the growth of new collagen to correct skin flaws.*

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

What are the benefits of an ICON laser treatment?

ICON laser treatments offer a non-invasive way to correct or reduce cosmetic flaws.* This provides a number of benefits, including lowering the risk of complications, such as bleeding and infections at the affected sites.* These treatments also have no downtime, so patients can go back to their day-to-day routines and activities. Patients also experience less discomfort with ICON laser treatments compared to more invasive, surgical treatments for cosmetic flaws.

1. Photorejuvenation (IPL)

Photorejuvenation with ICON delivers intense pulsed light (IPL) to revitalize the skin.* If you have freckles, moles, age spots, or vascular lesions on your face, chest, arms and hands, ICON treatments can treat them.* These unsightly signs of aging commonly show up prematurely due to sun exposure. We can take precautionary steps to limit the amount of sunlight that hits our skin, but sun spots and skin imperfections are unavoidable. Thankfully, IPL light energy can be selectively absorbed into the skin by the unwanted pigment and is then cleared away by the body.* If you are looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization, ICON laser treatments are the gold standard.*

Treatments are effective on all skin types, and they treat unwanted pigment without harming the surrounding areas.* With a few sessions, you can expect an even skin tone and a decrease in the appearance of unwanted skin pigment.* Following your procedure, the treated pigment is expected to appear darker, but soon it will fade and reveal a clear, more uniform look.* To find if you are a candidate, schedule a consultation at La Follette OB-GYN & Aesthetics today!

2. Skin Resurfacing

ICON can also treat texture irregularities like fine lines and wrinkles, and it can also improve the overall health of your skin.* The ICON 1540 laser uses non-ablative fractional resurfacing to penetrate the top layer of your skin without damaging it.* During the procedure, high-precision microbeams are delivered to the skin and create deep, narrow columns of skin coagulation surrounded by healthier, untreated skin.* Over time, your skin will work to repair itself, and will replace any damaged skin with healthier, younger-looking skin.* The ICON 1540 laser is perfect for the treatment of:

  • Uneven skin texture and tone*
  • Stretch marks*
  • Acne scars*
  • Surgical scars*

Following a treatment, you may experience redness and swelling for the first few days, but this will pass. Treatments are gentle do not require a lot of downtime. We recommend that you schedule multiple sessions for optimal results, but a treatment plan will be designed during your initial consultation.*

3. ThreeForMeTM

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

ThreeForMeTM treatments combine IPL photorejuvenation and skin resurfacing in one laser to treat sun damage, facial veins and unwanted wrinkles.* The procedure usually lasts 45-minutes, and afterward, you should begin to notice a healthy glow.* There is no downtime so you will be able to return to your normal routine immediately. ThreeForMeTM treatments are performed in two stages or “passes.” The first pass aims to treat discolorations like brown spots, freckles and age spots.* It can also address unsightly blood vessels, rosacea and facial veins using IPL technology.* The second pass works to renew the skin by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin.* This phase can improve scars, fine lines and wrinkles.* In order to achieve optimal results, we recommend that you undergo three treatments spaced one month apart.*

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

What should patients expect during treatment?

Patients of our Greenbrae office who undergo ICON laser treatments might have some mild discomfort, that lasts for a short time.* There is no serious discomfort associated with the use of this laser technology.* Patients should keep in mind that more than one treatment is generally needed for optimal results.* The number of laser treatments patients need depends on their personal aesthetic goals, however, most patients have 4-6 treatments for optimal results.*

Are ICON laser treatments safe?

ICON treatments are a safe method of correcting cosmetic flaws for many patients.* Those who undergo the treatment with this device don’t have to worry about suffering the same complications or serious side effects they would with invasive treatments. Patients usually have some slight swelling and redness in the areas that were treated.* This is an indication that ICON laser treatments are successfully working. Patients should let Dr. La Follette know about any medical conditions they have and any prescription and nonprescription medications they’re taking prior to ICON treatments.
