Icon Skin Laser Q&A

Family Health Care Aesthetics

What is the ICON skin laser?

The ICON skin laser uses a combination of fractional laser beams -- a beam divided into thousands of microscopic zones -- and intense pulsed light to regenerate a targeted area of your skin. It offers noninvasive treatment for:

  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Stretch marks
  • Facial photorejuvenation
  • Permanent hair reduction 
  • Hair removal

The ICON laser works on a wide range of skin types, and treatment requires no downtime.

How does the ICON laser improve skin?

When the tiny, targeted laser beams emitted from the ICON laser reach below the surface of your skin, it stimulates the production of new collagen and tissue.

The new collagen, which takes about six weeks to produce, plumps up the tissue below your skin, making the top layer of skin tighter and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. You may see results after just one treatment.

For acne scars or surgical scars, targeted laser beams break down the scar tissue and trigger the production of new tissue. The treatments work on all skin types, including very light and very dark skin.

The ICON laser works similarly on stretch marks, with the laser pulses to the area reducing discoloration and stimulating new collagen, which improves smoothness. Men and women typically need 3-5 treatments for their desired results.

What is facial photorejuvenation?

The ICON laser delivers gentle pulses of intense light to targeted areas on your face, reducing the appearance of sun spots, age spots, spider veins, rosacea, and capillaries.

Treatments last about 30 minutes, with visible results possible in just one or two sessions, although you may need more depending on the degree of damage. 

How does hair removal work with the ICON laser?

The ICON laser also provides a permanent solution to unwanted hair. With the laser’s light-based technology, your specialist at Family Health Care Aesthetics targets the hair cells responsible for hair growth to destroy them, without causing harm to the surrounding skin or tissue.

In just a few treatments, hair growth in the targeted area is minimized for good. Your days of shaving and waxing will be over!  

The ICON laser offers solutions to many common skin concerns on your face and body that may make you self-conscious. Let the professionals at Family Health Care Aesthetics in Boise, Idaho treat those conditions safely, quickly, and permanently. Call or make an appointment online today.
