What is Icon?

The Icon Aesthetic System is an advanced cosmetic tool that has the ability to improve the appearance of many common skin concerns. The Icon system is equipped with several different tools, which allows it to adjust to your specific skin care needs. It’s also nonablative, which means it improves the look of your skin without damaging the surface.

What skin concerns can Icon improve?

  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Rosacea (small pigmented lesions)
  • Lines and wrinkles

The team also uses the Icon system for photofacials. This aesthetic treatment uses targeted pulses of laser light to penetrate the top layer of your skin and constrict the proteins and blood vessels for immediate skin tightening effect. The energy produced by the pulsed light also stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, which is the protein that provides support and elasticity.

Can Icon remove unwanted hair?
