Cynosure Icon Laser Q & A
What is the Cynosure® Icon™ laser?
Essentially, it’s a versatile device that combines intense pulsed light with fractional laser technology. Depending on your needs and what service you select, your provider uses the specialized attachments to address your skin concerns, which may include:
- Skin resurfacing and rejuvenation to treat fine lines and wrinkles, scars, surface imperfections, and revitalize skin by generating elastin and collagen, creating a more youthful appearance
- Hair removal from areas such as the face, underarms, legs, back, and chest
- Stretch mark treatment
- Photorejuvenation including treatment on the face and body for sun damage, brown spots, wrinkles, facial blood vessels
- Acne scar reduction and treatment of rosacea
- Scar treatment- face and body
- Facial vascular lesions and unsightly blood vessels and facial veins
- Pigmented lesions on the face and body such as brown spots, freckles, age spots
The laser features a one-of-a-kind skin density reader to ascertain your exact skin tone so that it precisely matches the depth of your melanin. As the laser moves across your skin it activates its built-in cooling system to keep your skin from overheating.
What are the benefits of using the Cynosure Icon laser?
Whether it’s crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, facial fine lines, and wrinkles, or acne scars, the Cynosure Icon laser is a noninvasive way for the team at Hecker Eye Care Associates to treat the area of concern without damaging any deep tissue underneath the skin or skin nearby.
Men and women prefer treatment with the innovative laser because it’s quick and requires no downtime.
How does the Cynosure Icon laser work for skin resurfacing?
Hecker Eye Associates favors the Cynosure Icon laser because it’s so flexible and can treat multiple skin issues simultaneously. All at once, problems like stretch marks, oversized pores, acne scars, pigmentation problems, sunspots, and uneven skin tone are corrected.
The system works by penetrating the outer layers of your skin and reaching to your deepest layers to stimulate new collagen growth. During treatment, your technician removes your dead skin to make way for a new layer of fresh, youthful-looking skin to become visible.
How does laser hair removal work?
Your skin and hair technician slowly glides the Cynosure Icon laser wand over the parts of your body that have excess hair. Typical areas chosen for removal are:
- Upper Lip
Hair removal with the Cynosure Icon laser involves heat and, depending on your preference, may require the use of a topical anesthetic to numb the area.
Treatment takes no more than an hour. You can resume normal activity immediately, but you should avoid exposure to the sun for a few days.
