What is the ICON™ laser?
We are thrilled to offer MDTLC patients the innovative power and versatility of the ICON™ laser. This advanced laser houses three different treatment modalities in one machine, giving Dr. Quibell and her medical staff a wide range of options to address everything from wrinkles and discoloration to broken capillaries, dull skin and laser hair removal.
Why choose ICON™ at MD TLC™?
Patients often come into our office with a variety of cosmetic concerns they want to improve. The beauty of the ICON™ laser is that it can address multiple issues in just one treatment or spread out over multiple treatments, if indicated. Additionally, this leading device is more comfortable during treatment, offering the same wonderful benefits as other lasers but with less discomfort and downtime.
Another feature of the ICON™ is its intelligent skin reading device that determines the melanin amount in the skin being treated, which ensures optimal safety for a wide range of skin types.
The ICON™ laser can help with the following:
- Diminishing small facial veins
- Photo damage and pigmentation
- Reducing lines and wrinkles
- Diminishing surgical and acne scars
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Resurfacing dull skin
- Permanent laser hair reduction
- Brown spots
What is fractional resurfacing?
Fractional, ablative laser resurfacing has been a popular and well-loved option for complete skin renewal. However, the discomfort and downtime required with previous lasers was a concern for many patients. The ICON™ laser, on the other hand, offers a one-time treatment with minimal downtime and a fast recovery, giving patients dramatic improvements in the overall appearance of their skin.
The ICON™ 1540 non-ablative fractional laser uses microscopic beams of heat to stimulate cells to thicken the underlying collagen resulting in improved skin tone, texture and elasticity. This laser is safe on most skin types, and a series of treatments are required for optimal results. Since the non-ablative 1540 laser does not remove a layer of your skin, sun block and makeup can be applied immediately, and no downtime is experienced. This device is commonly used to treat all types of scars, stretch marks and complexion irregularities on most skin types.
The ICON™ Laser is the only system that can administer ThreeForMe™ treatments. A combination of IPL and laser renewal treatment, ThreeForMe™ is a great option for patients wishing to improve lines, wrinkles, sun damage and uneven skin texture with very minimal downtime. This skin-enhancing technology not only evens out tone and texture, but it also helps stimulate collagen production for smoother, more youthful-looking skin. ThreeForMe™ treatments generally require a series of treatments for optimal results.
Laser hair removal
For patients who wish to forget about waxing, shaving or any other form of temporary hair removal, the ICON™ laser offers superior treatments for permanent hair reduction. This laser is also safe for olive and tan skin types, making it a great option for a wide range of patients seeking laser hair removal. Thanks to its larger spot size, the ICON™ is great for treating large areas including the legs, back, chest and arms in a shorter session compared with other laser devices.
Skin rejuvenation treatments with ICON’s Optimised Light Photorejuvenation technology can reduce the appearance of brown spots, spider veins, rosacea, unwanted pigmentation and facial vessels. Several treatments may be required, however the dramatic rejuvenation of your skin is now possible.
