ICON Laser Q & A

What is Icon?

Icon is the name of a revolutionary cosmetic treatment system developed by Cynosure to enable clinicians to carry out a range of procedures using the same piece of equipment.

Most aesthetic procedures once needed separate machines, so patients would attend one session for laser hair removal, then another for wrinkle treatments.

The Icon Aesthetic System combines the functions of these separate machines into one unit, so Dr. Mian can treat your unwanted hair problems and your wrinkles simultaneously.

How does Icon work?

Icon is a laser-based system that uses light technology to improve cosmetic skin conditions and remove unwanted hair permanently. The lasers in Icon work by pulsing beams of concentrated light energy into the problem areas on your skin.

Dr. Mian can adjust the Icon lasers in order to use the optimum wavelength for the different tissues in the body. Blood and skin require different intensities of light to achieve the optimal effect, which is now possible using a single Icon machine.

Icon also features Advanced Contact Cooling™ technology that ensures the patient’s skin doesn’t feel too hot, and AccuSpectrum™ to minimize skin damage and ensure the process is as comfortable as possible for the patient.

What other advantages does Icon have?

In addition to the convenience of only having to use one machine to perform many different procedures, the technology in Icon also provides better results for patients.

For example, the skin resurfacing function improves the patient’s complexion by taking off the surface layer of skin, revealing new, fresh skin, while at the same time Icon heats the skin and underlying tissues to promote the growth of new collagen fibers.

As a result, your skin not only looks better from the exposure of fresh skin, but the increased collagen production stimulated by the laser treatment firms and plumps your skin, restoring a more youthful appearance.

What is Icon used to treat?

Dr. Mian uses Icon to treat an array of cosmetic problems, including:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Permanent hair removal
  • Spider veins
  • Acne scars
  • Burn scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Surgical scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Varicose veins
  • Sun damage
  • Liver spots

Dr. Mian also uses Icon to remove pigmented and vascular lesions

Is Icon a safe treatment method?

Laser treatments are one of the safest cosmetic procedures available, and Icon is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as being safe for professional use. It’s important to only ever receive laser treatment from qualified clinicians who are certified in the use of laser technologies, as Dr. Mian is.
