ICON Laser Q & A

What can the Icon laser treat?

The Cynosure Icon laser platform is highly customizable, allowing your CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics provider to offer many different services, including:

  • Hair removal
  • Acne scar reduction
  • Facial vein reduction
  • Stretch mark reduction
  • Skin revitalization
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of pigmentation from sun damage

If you have more than one concern, for example, acne scars along with fine lines and wrinkles, Icon treatments can help with both. You can even schedule two treatments at once to make it even more convenient.

How do I prepare for my Icon treatment session?

Preparation can vary based on exactly which treatment you’re having, but usually, it includes guidelines such as:

  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid sun exposure and indoor tanning
  • Avoid photosensitive drugs and other medications as recommended

For laser hair removal, your CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics provider will recommend that you shave (no plucking or waxing) immediately before your appointment. Your provider will give you any other specific guidelines ahead of time.

What is recovery like after Icon treatment?

One of the big advantages of Icon treatments is that there’s no downtime at all. You may experience some redness for a short period after your treatment, but most patients experience no discomfort or pain. Stay out of the sun after your Icon treatment, and apply sunblock when you’re outdoors.

How many Icon treatment sessions do I need?

It varies depending on what kind of treatment you’re having, the size of the treatment area, and other factors specific to your situation. On average, most men and women need 3-6 laser hair removal sessions while sun damage or wrinkle reduction treatments may require as little as one or two sessions.

Before you begin treatment, your CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics provider discusses your appearance goals with you, and then gives you an estimate of how many treatments you need for the results you want.

The Cynosure Icon system offers dramatic results without invasive treatments or surgery, so it’s a great option for hair removal, skin revitalization, wrinkle reduction, and more. Book your appointment online or by calling the CNS Center of Arizona & Medical Aesthetics office today.
