Icon Q & A

What is ICON laser treatment?

Cynosure ICON laser treatment is a nonsurgical treatment for correcting or minimizing cosmetic flaws. This type of treatment can be used for several types of flaws, including scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and unwanted hair growth. ICON laser technology works by stimulating the growth of new collagen to correct scars and other skin flaws. When it’s used for removing hair, it works by damaging hair cells to stop them from being able to grow new hair.

What are the benefits of ICON laser treatment?

ICON laser treatment offers a non-invasive way to correct or reduce cosmetic flaws. This provides a number of benefits, including lowering the risk of complications, such as bleeding and infections at the affected sites.

ICON laser treatment also has no downtime, so patients can go back to their day-to-day routines and activities instead of having to take time to recuperate after their procedure. Patients also experience less discomfort with ICON laser treatment compared to invasive forms of treatment for cosmetic flaws or hair removal.

What should patients expect during ICON laser treatment?

Patients who have ICON laser treatments might experience some mild discomfort, but this only lasts for a short time. There’s no serious discomfort associated with the use of ICON laser technology. You should keep in mind that more than one treatment is generally needed for optimal effects. The number of laser treatments you need depends on different factors, such as how many areas are being treated and your overall satisfaction with the progress of your results. Most patients undergo 4-6 treatments for optimal results.

Is ICON laser treatment safe?

Cynosure ICON laser treatment is a safe method of correcting cosmetic flaws and removing hair for many patients. Those who undergo this treatment don’t have to worry about suffering complications or serious side effects as they would with invasive treatments. Patients usually have some slight swelling and redness in the areas that were treated. This is an indication that ICON laser treatments are successfully working. You should let Dr. Kollar know about any medical conditions you have and any prescription and nonprescription medications you’re taking.
