Icon Laser Q & A

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser system is a dynamic laser platform that can deliver multiple different treatments. The technology behind the Icon system uses carefully controlled light to reach the deeper layers of your skin.

Icon is a great treatment option for the following:

  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Photorejuvenation
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Laser hair removal
  • Vascular lesions

The versatility of the Icon laser system is why The Effect Lifestyle Practice team chose to bring this technology on board.

How can the Icon laser help reduce unwanted body hair?

The Icon laser system effectively reduces unwanted body hair by delivering a controlled beam of light that heats your hair follicle. That heat destroys the follicle’s ability to produce hair, leaving less regrowth with each subsequent treatment.

The system uses special cooling technology to keep the surface of your skin comfortable while the laser pulses. Some men and women report feeling a slight pinching sensation, similar to the snap of a rubber band. However, because the Icon laser can treat a relatively larger area with each pulse, your treatment session takes far less time than with previous laser hair removal options.

What can be done to remove spider veins?

Spider veins are areas where the tiny valves in your blood vessels begin to fail, causing blood to pool in those areas and the veins to become visible through your skin. The Icon laser system treats those veins by constricting enlarged blood vessels, reducing their size and making them less visible.

What’s the difference between photorejuvenation and skin resurfacing?

These terms are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are actually two different procedures.

Photorejuvenation

Also known as skin rejuvenation, this is a laser treatment that targets areas of discoloration, like red or brown spots due to sun damage or uneven pigmentation. The laser breaks apart those pigments so your body can process and eliminate them.

Skin Resurfacing

This laser treatment addresses textural issues, like wrinkles, enlarged pores, sagging skin, and acne scarring. The laser creates thousands of micro-injuries in the deeper layers of your skin which prompts your body’s healing response. Those new cells create smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
