What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser uses heat energy to boost collagen production and increase cell turnover, helping to address a number of common skin conditions. Icon is a fractional laser system that features multiple settings and handpieces to administer a wide variety of treatments. The system is safe for all skin types

What skin concerns can the Icon laser treat?

The Icon laser is incredibly versatile. At Karen E. Kennedy, MD, you can take advantage of the following treatments:

IPL (intense pulsed light) phototherapy

If you have skin concerns such as sun damage, pigmentation issues, or visible blood vessels, IPL can help. The Icon laser technology uses a specialized light wave to break up pigmentation, which is then eliminated through your body’s natural waste-removal systems. The gentle, yet intense pulses of light erase sun spots, rosacea redness, and spider veins.

Hair removal

Laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair on areas such as your legs, bikini line, chin, and underarms. Icon laser energy targets the pigment in hair follicles so they’re destroyed and can no longer grow hair, and it does so without causing any damage to the surrounding skin.

Skin resurfacing

Fractional laser technology offered by Icon resurfaces your skin. Microbeams of laser energy target specific areas to boost the growth of healthy skin by triggering your body’s natural production of collagen, a natural skin-strengthening compound. You experience improvements in the appearance of scarring, texture issues, sun spots, and wrinkles.

What should I expect during Icon laser treatment?

Icon laser treatment is performed in the office and lasts 20-30 minutes, depending on the procedure performed and the size of the body area treated. Most people tolerate the treatment quite well, but it may cause mildly uncomfortable sensations. Discuss the use of a topical anesthetic if you’re concerned about discomfort.

Most aesthetic procedures require more than one session for you to get optimal results. Dr. Kennedy puts together a customized treatment plan so you get the best outcome for your aesthetic goals.
