Icon® Laser Q & A

Colorado Family Medicine

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is a multi-use advanced laser system used to perform a number of cosmetic procedures, including:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars
  • Hair removal

The laser is outfitted with various wands and settings to allow the trained specialists at Colorado Family Medicine to provide specialized treatment. It’s also equipped with a revolutionary skin reader, which improves the effectiveness and speed of treatment, and a cooling system for comfort.

How does skin rejuvenation with the Icon laser work?

The Icon laser rejuvenates skin by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that gives your skin its strength and elasticity. It can treat:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Skin tone and texture

For wrinkles and fine lines, you may only need one treatment. The procedure uses noninvasive ablative laser technology to target the treatment area. You’ll notice a difference in the look of your skin within four days.

To treat age spots and sun damage, the Icon laser uses a special microbeam that’s able to penetrate the surface of your skin and target a specific area underneath. The beam activates your skin’s natural healing to create new, younger-looking skin. This technique also improves your skin’s tone and texture.

How does the Icon laser minimize the appearance of scars and stretch marks?

Fractional laser energy penetrates the scar tissue and breaks it up. Then your body works to replace the damaged area with new skin and collagen, creating a smoother appearance. The laser technology treats a variety of scars, including those caused by acne, surgery, or injuries.

For the treatment of stretch marks, the team at Colorado Family Medicine may recommend 3-5 treatments to achieve the desired results.

How does Icon laser hair removal work?

The Icon laser uses light technology to permanently remove unwanted hair. It works by destroying the hair follicle to prevent future hair growth without affecting the health of your skin.

The laser can be used on almost any area of your body where you have unwanted hair, including your face, legs, and arms. Laser hair removal cannot be performed around your eyes. Due to your hair’s growth cycle, you will need multiple treatments.
