The Icon™ Aesthetic System can be used to treat one or more of the following issues:

How the Icon™ Aesthetic System Can Help You
Skin discoloration is often caused by the overproduction of melanin in the tissues. The energy produced by the Icon™ Aesthetic System damages targeted melanin cells. Over a period of time, the cells break down, which results in a reduction in the visibility of skin discoloration.
Wrinkles form due to a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This collagen loss can result in crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, lip lines, and marionette lines. Customized Icon™ laser treatments pinpoint problem areas, and controlled penetration stimulates the production of new collagen. This process helps erase wrinkles and smooth the skin.
Both acne scars and surgical scars can benefit from the use of the Icon™ laser. By using fractional laser light, scar tissue is broken down while healthy tissue is produced. This process leaves your scar with an improved tone and texture. This treatment can be used for all skin types and requires three to five sessions.
