Icon Laser

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon fractional laser is an innovative device that uses a variety of hand pieces to deploy intense pulses of light into your skin to improve your overall appearance. 

It’s a versatile aesthetic system that addresses a variety of skin concerns. The laser is noninvasive, so you have no incisions, scarring, or downtime.

What conditions does the Icon laser treat?

The Icon laser is popular because it treats so many issues, including:

  • Age spots
  • Broken capillaries
  • Wrinkles 
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Scars
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks
  • Unwanted facial or body hair

Talk to Dr. Zimmerman about your problem areas so she can customize a treatment plan for you.

How does the Icon laser work?

The light energy from the laser penetrates under the surface of your skin. Your body perceives it as an injury and activates its self-healing properties by increasing collagen and elastin production. 

In return, you get healthy, revitalized skin. The result is smoother, tighter, firmer, and more vibrant complexion. 

Am I a candidate for Icon laser therapy?

Icon laser therapy is great for all skin types. However, Dr. Zimmerman does not recommend the procedure if you have active acne or a skin infection.

What can I expect at my Icon laser treatment?

Dr. Zimmerman performs your noninvasive Icon laser treatment right in the comfort of your private room in her state-of-the-art clinic. You’ll recline and get comfortable while she glides the laser over the designated treatment areas. 

You will feel minimal pain and the laser doesn’t affect any of your surrounding skin or tissue. The entire session takes 45 minutes to an hour, and you will experience minimal downtime. Typically, 3-5 sessions are recomended to see desired results. 

When will I see results?

Many patients see results after the first treatment, but Dr. Zimmerman often recommends four or five sessions to optimize your results. The exact number of treatments you need depends on your skin issues and how big the area is that you’re addressing. 

At your consultation, Dr. Zimmerman examines your skin and tailors a treatment plan for you so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

When you’re ready to restore the texture, tone, or pigmentation of your skin, try an Icon laser treatment. Call the office today or book your appointment online.
