Icon Q & A

What is Icon?

The Icon laser system is a uniquely customizable aesthetic machine developed by Cynosure. The team at Mountain Medical Arts can calibrate the laser to address nearly any skin concern you might have.

The equipment has seven different handpieces and can be calibrated to target a variety of skin concerns. The laser penetrates your skin and revitalizes it in several ways, depending on the setting of the laser.

For example, if you’re troubled by wrinkles or loose skin, the laser triggers collagen and elastin production that plumps and tightens your skin from within. Different calibrations stimulate deep exfoliation or break up excess pigment in your skin. Icon can even be used for laser hair removal treatments.

What skin imperfections can the Icon laser treat?

The team at Mountain Medical Arts use the Icon laser to correct an array of skin imperfections, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Age spots and other types of hyperpigmentation
  • Vascular lesions and spider veins
  • Scarring
  • Unwanted body hair

If you’re concerned about skin imperfections or signs of aging, schedule a consultation at Mountain Medical Arts to discover how Icon laser treatments can enhance your appearance.

What happens during an Icon treatment?

Laser treatments can take up to an hour, depending on your specific treatment and the size of the area being treated.

During your treatment, you and your provider wear goggles to protect your eyes from the flashes of laser light. You can apply an ice pack or a topical numbing cream before your treatment to maintain your comfort.

Your provider uses a handheld device to direct the laser over your skin. Icon laser treatments can cause a snapping sensation and may warm your skin, but the feelings subside soon after your treatment is complete.

You may notice an improvement after just one treatment, but in most cases, you’ll need a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. For example, most patients have six appointments for laser hair removal.

How should I take care of my skin after an Icon laser treatment?

You won’t need to take any time off to recover after your Icon laser treatment. The laser can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so you should make sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day and avoid being outside when the sun is strongest.
