Am I a Candidate for the Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Procedure?

Candidates for the Icon™ laser treatment have good skin elasticity but are unhappy with the signs of aging, irregularities, and pigmentation issues on the face, neck, and chest area.

You should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of their results. You may be asked to stop taking certain types of medications during your treatment, and this will be discussed with you during your consultation.

How Is the Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Procedure Performed?

This procedure is safe, non-invasive, and completed in 30 to 45 minutes.

A local anesthetic may be administered to make you feel comfortable with the treatment. The Icon™ laser’s light beam is passed over your skin to help stimulate collagen production and treat a variety of skin concerns.

The specifics of your Icon™ treatment will depend on the skin concerns you are trying to address.

This laser treatment offers both intense pulsed light (IPL) and fractional laser technologies (Icon™ 1540 laser). The use of these will depend on your skin concern.

  • IPL is used to minimize wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins.
  • Icon™ 1540 laser is used to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and uneven skin tone and texture.

What Is Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Procedure Recovery Like?

It is common to experience some discomfort following the procedure that feels similar to a sunburn.

The Icon™ laser requires minimal to no downtime, but you may experience swelling, bruising, or temporary discoloration in the skin in the area that received laser treatment.

You will be given instructions on what to do to expedite the healing process.

When Will I See My Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Results?

While some patients can see results in as few as one to two treatments, others require three to five treatments to reduce the visibility of wrinkles or scars and improve skin texture. Your doctor will discuss your options (and the estimated number of sessions) with you during your consultation.

Over time, you will notice the gradual reduction of fine lines and the firmer appearance of your facial complexion.
