Icon Q & A

What is Icon?

Icon is a cutting-edge medical device that uses a laser to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. The FamilyMed Centers experts use the Icon for many noninvasive aesthetic treatments, helping you look your best and feel good about yourself.

Treatment with the Icon laser helps you look younger and achieve clearer skin. It triggers your body’s own anti-aging processes for long-lasting, natural results.

How does Icon work?

Icon works by using a laser, or intense light, to target and heat deep layers of your skin. The laser can target different layers and pigments to deliver different desired results.

Once the energy from the laser reaches its targeted area, it gently heats the area, which stimulates your body’s production of collagen, elastin, and other proteins. These proteins have healing properties and work together to give your skin structure and elasticity. Your body’s natural healing process jumps in to help eliminate scars, spots, and other marks.

What can Icon treat?

The Icon laser has different settings and can target many skin imperfections and conditions. At FamilyMed Centers, the aesthetic experts frequently use the laser to treat:

  • Age spots
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation or discoloration
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles

The device is very versatile and serves as a treatment for other skin conditions, too. With a few sessions, your skin looks rejuvenated, gorgeous, and blemish-free.

Are treatments with Icon safe?

Treatment with the Icon laser is generally very safe because it is minimally invasive. You don’t undergo anesthesia, and there are no incisions. There are a few side effects to be aware of before you commit to the treatment:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Skin color changes
  • Slight scarring
  • Infection

Infection is rare, and the FamilyMed Centers team can discuss these risks in depth with you as you explore your options for treatment. They also take note of your medical history to determine if the Icon is the best option for you.

If your skin needs refreshing or if you have scars, spots, and blemishes, the Icon laser is a great option to reach your goals. For smooth, flawless skin, call or schedule your appointment online at FamilyMed Centers to learn more about treatments with Icon.
