8 Amazing Benefits of the Icon Laser

Are you ready to tackle those skin imperfections that drive you crazy each time you look into a mirror? Mountain Medical Arts can help by using an Icon™ laser to treat many skin problems at once, giving you a younger, healthier appearance. Here’s how it works.

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is an all-inclusive skin treatment system that does far more than typical lasers can do to make your skin brighter, tighter, and less wrinkled. The Icon laser combines intense pulses of light with laser energy to reach deep into the skin. This stimulates your body to produce elastin and collagen, which are essential for smooth and glowing skin and in short supply as you age. The Icon laser turns back time by helping your skin produce more collagen and elastin.

What are the benefits of the Icon laser?

Patients love the Icon laser because it’s a multitasker that tackles several beauty problems at once. During treatments, your skin may feel warm, but it will never overheat because the device has a built-in cooling mechanism.  

Here are some problems that the Icon laser can help solve.

Reduces spider veins

The Icon laser constricts and destroys the blood vessels responsible for your unattractive spider veins. Reduces hyperpigmentation

The Icon laser can help erase dark places on your skin from melasma or age spots. During photorejuvenation treatment, the laser will cause dark areas to slough away, leaving you with a more glowing and even skin tone.

Helps stretch marks fade

The fractional laser light from the Icon laser can improve the appearance of stretch marks by working underneath your skin to encourage new cell growth. Over time and after a few sessions, the marks are filled in and blend better with surrounding skin. 

Removes hair

Sick of shaving and waxing? The laser’s light energy destroys hair follicles, stopping or diminishing hair growth on your legs, armpits, bikini line, and other areas.

Minimizes wrinkles

The Icon laser minimizes the appearance of wrinkles by generating new tissue, cells, collagen, and elastin. Our professionals create a skin rejuvenation plan that includes two or more treatments that help you achieve the results you dream of. 

Minimizes scars

Surgical scars and acne pocks respond well to the Icon laser, which breaks down tough scar tissue and amps up your collagen and elastin production. Healthy skin eventually replaces unsightly scars.

Smoothes skin

The laser addresses textural issues by blasting short beams of energy into problem areas, including wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, or scars. It stokes your collagen production and builds new tissue.

There’s no downtime

The Icon laser requires little or no downtime, so that you can get back to your life immediately after treatments. The treatment itself typically takes about 30 minutes in our office.
