Icon Q & A

What is the Icon laser? 

Icon laser therapy is a safe and effective aesthetic treatment that uses light energy to perform a wide range of procedures. 

Without pain or downtime, the Icon laser offers a nonsurgical solution to unwanted hair removal, skin rejuvenation, and the reduction of:

  • Dark or pigmented skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Discoloration or dark spots
  • Vascular lesions 
  • Stretch marks 
  • Acne scars
  • Spider veins and other leg veins
  • Rosacea

Your experienced Icon technician uses a specially-designed handheld device to apply laser energy deep into the tissues below the level of your blemishes.

Icon slowly heats the cells, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and promotes new cell growth. In the case of laser hair removal, light energy damages the hair follicles so they can’t produce unwanted hair.

What is involved in an Icon laser treatment?

During an initial consultation with your provider, the medical team discusses your goals and expected outcomes. They also allow you to ask any questions and express any concerns.

At the time of your treatment, your aesthetic specialist prepares your skin for Icon therapy by cleansing it and applying a cooling gel. While your technician applies laser energy to your problem area, both of you wear protective eyewear.

After treatment, they apply a healing serum that may help decrease any lasting tenderness or redness. You may return to your regular activities with no downtime.

Over the next few weeks, you see the results of your treatment as your body naturally responds with new cell growth or less hair production, depending on the procedure.

What are the benefits of using the Icon laser? 

The Mercy Clinic team proudly offers Icon laser therapy as it holds many benefits for both men and women. Benefits of using Icon include: 

  • It is safe and effective 
  • It is noninvasive and virtually painless
  • It takes only 15-30 minutes
  • It is appropriate for all skin types
  • It requires no downtime or time away from work

Your Icon therapy treatment plan is individualized to meet your needs and provide the most optimal results. While you may see noticeable changes in just one session, most treatment plans require 3-10 treatment sessions, depending on your goals.
