Icon Laser Q & A

What types of issues can receive treatment with laser treatment?

The Icon™ Aesthetic System can help revitalize your skin and address aesthetic issues, including:

  • Stretch marks
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Red and brown blood vessels
  • Acne scars and surgical scars
  • Sun damage and melasma
  • Hair removal


How does the Icon Aesthetic System work?

The Icon laser delivers fractional laser technology deep into your skin to regenerate new skin and reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The laser energy destroys the pigments in sun spots, melasma, and stretch marks to even out your tone and encourages increased collagen production to improve your skin’s strength and integrity.

When treating excess hair, the laser energy penetrates the hair follicles and causes them to become dormant.


What are the benefits of laser skin treatment?

Laser treatment offers faster recovery than more invasive aesthetic procedures. You may need as few as four days to recover from wrinkle and scar treatment. Sessions take an hour or less, and you can treat multiple complaints at once. And the Icon laser treatment is efficient on all skin types.


What is photorejuvenation?

At Mothers and Daughters Center, the providers use the Icon laser for photorejuvenation, which is sometimes called a photofacial. Icon uses Optimised Light® technology to deliver gentle pulses of energy to facial blood vessels and pigmented spots. The discolorations absorb the light energy and are disposed of naturally by the body. Photorejuvenation effectively treats:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea
  • Visible capillaries

After your photorejuvenation session, you’ll need to be particularly careful about avoiding the sun and using high-SPF sunscreen when you’re outside. Your skin is very delicate following laser treatment.


How many laser treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on what issue you’re treating. Multiple treatments are required to eliminate excess hair, while photofacials often give you the best results after three to four sessions. Dr. Anderson can put together a customized treatment plan for you so you can get the aesthetic results you desire.
