Icon Laser Q & A

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is a groundbreaking, noninvasive technology that can address many aesthetic concerns. Icon allows you to avoid surgical treatments, which can come with many risks and side effects.

The Icon fractional laser delivers intense pulsed light to the tissue just under your skin without damaging the surface of your skin.

The laser light targets and destroys old skin cells, pigment, and hair follicles. Once the target is heated and destroyed, your body eliminates the cells through your lymphatic system. The Icon laser prompts a healing response in your skin and increases elastin and collagen production, leading to healthier, smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

What does Icon treat?

Pacific Northwest Primary Care offers the Icon laser system to combat a wide spectrum of aesthetic issues, such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Scarring
  • Facial veins
  • Leg veins
  • Unwanted body hair

During your personal consultation, your provider will help you decide if Icon is the right way to resolve your skin concerns.

When can I expect results from my Icon treatment?

The Icon laser treatment typically generates the same elimination and healing responses across the board regardless of the type of aesthetic concern.

In most cases, you should notice some results immediately in any Icon treatment. Optimal results are usually seen around 1-3 months following your treatment after your body has flushed out the old tissue and produced new collagen and elastin.

The Icon laser treatment is completely safe and is performed at the office. You can return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience some redness at the treatment site, but this should resolve in a day or so.

How many Icon treatments will I need?

Because the Icon laser treats so many different aesthetic concerns, it can be difficult to say how many treatments you’ll need. Each case and each person will be different.

Your provider will discuss the process in detail and give you a personalized treatment plan and timeline.
