Icon Laser Q & A
What is the Icon laser?
The Icon is a cutting-edge laser system that uses one medical device to power multiple types of lasers. This is a huge advantage for you, because different lasers target specific cosmetic problems.
With the versatile Icon system, Dr. Salkinder has the flexibility to truly customize each patient’s treatment.
What cosmetic concerns are treated with the Icon laser?
The Icon laser rejuvenates your appearance by treating these cosmetic problems:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Unwanted hair
- Stretch marks
- Scars (acne and surgical)
- Spider veins
- Sun spots, age spots, and skin discolorations
- Poor skin tone and texture
Laser treatments provided by the Icon are safe for all skin types and colors.
How does the Icon laser produce results?
The different Icon lasers produce effective results through three primary mechanisms:
Specific wavelengths are absorbed by colored pigments, such as brown sun spots and the red-blue pigments in spider veins. As a result, they leave the surrounding tissues unharmed.
When pigments absorb laser energy, the targeted cells break down. After the treatment, your body naturally clears away the targeted cells which treats your skin discoloration.
Skin tightening and removal of fine lines and wrinkles
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, two substances which provide strength and resilience. Without enough collagen and elastin, you develop wrinkles and loose skin.
When laser energy passes safely through your skin and targets structures below the surface, it triggers a healing response that boosts collagen and elastin production.
As old skin at the surface sheds, it’s replaced by new cells rich in collagen and elastin. Your new skin growth is tighter, better toned, and less wrinkled.
Using a specific Icon laser, Dr. Salkinder can resurface your skin, using the laser to precisely remove one or more layers of skin. This process treats problems and promotes new skin growth.
What is ThreeForMe™?
ThreeForMe is a laser treatment that’s only available with the Icon laser. It treats three of the most common skin problems during one procedure: sun damage, wrinkles, and facial veins.
During your ThreeForMe session, Dr. Salkinder makes two passes over your skin. The first pass uses intense pulsed light technology to treat veins and skin discolorations. The second uses laser technology that stimulates new collagen and elastin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
