Icon Laser Q & A

How does the Icon laser work?

The Icon platform by Cynosure is the latest and most advanced aesthetic system on the market. This revolutionary system includes several devices and different types of laser and energy technology to help men and women achieve their aesthetic and beauty goals.

Icon laser treatments send safe waves of laser energy deep down into your skin. This energy stimulates cell turnover and collagen production, so over time, fresh, firm skin forms as older skin cells start to shed away. Your skin is naturally revitalized and restored to its more youthful appearance.

What’s particularly unique about the Icon system is that it also includes a handheld device that can get rid of unwanted body hair. During treatments, Icon’s laser energy targets hair follicles, destroying them on the spot. With each laser hair removal treatment, hair grows back finer and lighter until one day, it stops growing back altogether.

What can the Icon laser treat?

At Heights Rheumatology and Esthetics, Dr. Agosto sits down with you and learns about your anti-aging and skin care goals. She customizes an Icon laser plan that’s based on your needs. The Icon laser can help with:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Pigmentation issues
  • Skin vessel treatment
  • Permanent hair reduction

If you have several problems you want to treat in a specific area, Dr. Agosto may suggest the ThreeForMe™ laser treatment plan. ThreeForMe is designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, and facial vessels all at once.

When will I see results with the Icon laser?

Icon’s job is to stimulate cell turnover and trigger new cell production, which starts with your very first treatment. Cells won’t develop overnight, though. As old skin cells start to shed and new skin cells push to the surface, it can take up to 2-3 weeks to really start noticing an improvement in your skin.

With each passing day, though, your skin continues to look smoother, younger, and more even-toned. Most men and women have optimal results about 4-6 weeks after an Icon laser session.

If you’re having hair removal with Icon, your hair starts shedding within 2-3 weeks. It’s important to exfoliate your treatment area daily to help destroyed hair work its way out of your skin.

Dr. Agosto can let you know how many Icon laser treatments it’s going to take to experience optimal results, based on your skin care needs.
