Wrinkle Reduction

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon™ laser system by CynoSure® is a versatile technology that the doctors at Beth and Howard Braver, MD, use to provide a variety of nonsurgical aesthetic treatments.

The Icon technology uses intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to address a number of common skin flaws, especially those caused by aging and sun damage. You can rely on the high-quality results of your treatments with Icon for issues like:

  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration
  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

The Beth and Howard Braver, MD, medical team also can use the Icon system to reduce unwanted hair on your face and body.

What can I expect during a treatment with Icon?

Depending on your treatment and desired results, the staff at Beth and Howard Braver, MD, uses special Icon laser handpieces to deliver IPL energy into the treatment area. Icon laser procedures are all noninvasive and require no anesthesia or incisions to achieve results. Instead, the doctors apply the special handpiece over the surface of your skin to deliver energy into specific areas of your body.

The energy penetrates your skin and goes deep into the tissue below to stimulate the production of collagen, an important building block of healthy, young-looking skin. Your surrounding tissue isn’t damaged by the treatments and many of the in-office procedures take 30 minutes or less to complete.

After your treatment, you don’t have to schedule downtime to recover. You can go back to your usual activities without any limitations.

How long does it take to see results of Icon laser treatments?

If you’re treating wrinkles, stretch marks, or scars, it can take several weeks to see the results of your treatment with the Icon laser. Your body needs time to produce new collagen to fill in wrinkles and stretch marks, giving you a younger, healthier look.

When the Icon laser is used for hair removal, you may see a noticeable difference immediately after treatment. However, the laser can only treat hair in its active growth phase, so you may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.

Before your treatment, your Beth and Howard Braver, MD, provider reviews your medical history and expectations for results to ensure Icon laser treatments are right for you. They create a custom treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals and ensure long-lasting satisfaction with your outcome.
