Icon Laser Q & A

What is the Icon laser aesthetic system?

The Icon laser system is one of the most versatile laser aesthetic systems available today. It includes treatments for a variety of skin and cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Unwanted hair growth
  • Stretch marks

It combines the power of lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies to provide the most effective results without downtime or damage to your skin.

How does the Icon laser improve the appearance of scars?

Whether you have acne scars or surgical scars, the Icon system safely breaks down scar tissue to reduce the appearance of discoloration without harming the surrounding skin. During treatment, controlled laser energy penetrates below the surface of your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. As a result, you begin to produce new collagen and elastin cells, which over time, reduce the appearance of scar tissue as healthier skin grows in its place.

Depending on the size of your scar, treatments take as little as 30 minutes. There’s no downtime, either, making scar removal with the Icon system convenient for your busy lifestyle. Dr. LeBel recommends an optimal number of treatments for your scar for long-lasting results that minimize scar tissue and create a more even skin tone and texture with surrounding skin.

What can I expect during my Icon laser session for scar removal?

Expect to feel minimal discomfort as the laser targets your acne scar or surgical scar tissue. Many people describe the treatment as feeling like a snap of a rubber band that’s easily tolerated and over quickly. Immediately following your appointment, you may experience temporary redness or swelling, but this resolves within a couple of days.

You can expect to see your scar lighten in color and blend in more evenly as your skin heals itself from the inside out with new tissue.

If you have age spots, wrinkles, or stretch marks from pregnancy, the Icon laser system can help reduce their appearance and help you feel more confident. The aesthetic system is safe for your face as well as other areas of your body, and Dr. LeBel and her team are trained and skilled in all the aesthetic procedures they offer patients at their Greenville office.
