ICON Q & A

What is the Icon laser system?

The Icon laser technology is an aesthetic system that uses multiple devices to perform a variety of skin rejuvenation procedures, many of them simultaneously. The innovative laser features technology that allows Dr. Ghosh to customize settings to personalize your treatment and address your specific skin concerns.

What conditions does the Icon laser treat?

The device comes with several specialized attachments that deliver intense pulsed light that Dr. Ghosh uses to:

  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Minimize stretch marks
  • Smooth acne pocks
  • Lighten age spots, sun spots, and dark freckles
  • Eliminate unwanted hair
  • Break down scar tissue
  • Facial vessel redness reduction

Icon uses non-ablative laser resurfacing to trigger new collagen and elastin production, which can tighten the skin and improve skin issues.  

What can I expect during an Icon laser treatment?

The experienced medical team at Aesthetics and Laser Wellness conduct your Icon laser treatment in your comfortable, private room. First, Dr. Ghosh cleans your skin and applies a numbing cream to help minimize any sensations from the laser.

As the laser passes over your target areas, you’ll feel them heat up. There may be minor discomfort, but the wand delivers cool bursts to keep you from getting too warm.

How does the Icon laser work for skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing encompasses a range of non-surgical skin procedures to help improve the texture and tone of your skin. Dr. Ghosh uses the Icon laser to treat multiple skin problems in one session. Problems like hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, and big pores can all be addressed with the Icon laser.

The system works by beaming light energy deep into your skin. The intense heat triggers the outer layers of your skin to exfoliate and new collagen growth to begin. In the weeks and months following your treatments, your skin will become softer and smoother as your skin problems fade away.

How many treatments are needed?

Many patients see immediate results after a single session with the Icon laser. However, it’s likely that you’ll need several follow-up treatments in order to get the best results. Each Icon laser session lasts about 30 minutes. Dr. Ghosh will meet with you prior to the procedure to customize a plan so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
