Icon Laser Q & A

What is the Icon Aesthetic System?

The Icon laser uses heat energy to trigger your body’s natural healing. A fractional laser treatment system that features multiple energy settings and handpieces, the Icon can administer a variety of aesthetic treatments that improve your skin’s tone, texture, and strength.

What is intense pulsed light therapy?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light with special filters to treat issues such as:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea redness
  • Spider veins

The laser energy breaks up unwanted pigmentation without causing harm to the surrounding skin.

How does laser hair removal work?

The Icon system is also effective at permanently destroying unwanted hair. The pigments in treated hair follicles absorb the light energy and are destroyed so they can no longer produce hair. Areas such as your bikini line, underarms, legs, arms, chest, back, and face all benefit from treatment. You’ll need multiple sessions to effectively destroy all of the hair follicles while they’re in a growth cycle.

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation with the Icon laser system combines laser and IPL energy to treat wrinkles, facial veins, and sun spots in just one session. The laser’s microbeams promote the growth of healthy tissue by boosting your natural production of collagen, a protein that strengthens skin structure. You achieve the short-term revitalization of your complexion and long-term results.

Do Icon treatments hurt?

During Icon laser treatments, you feel intense warmth and a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. You may have some redness in treatment areas following a session, but there’s no prescribed downtime. If you’re concerned about any discomfort, you can request that Dr. Ashtari apply a topical numbing cream prior to your treatment.

After laser hair removal, for example, you can go right back to all of your normal activities. After skin rejuvenation or IPL therapy, you may choose to lie low for a day or two due to minor swelling and redness, as the effects are much like a mild sunburn.
