Icon Laser Treatment Q & A

What is the Icon laser?

Valley Medical Urgent Care is excited to offer the Icon laser to patients looking to reduce wrinkles, remove unwanted hair, and hide scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and leg veins.

What is treatment with the Icon laser like?

Treatments vary depending on what condition you are trying to correct:

Wrinkle reduction

The Icon can reduce the appearance of wrinkles in a single treatment. The laser stimulates the skin’s natural healing ability, causing it to regenerate and reversing the effects of aging. It’s a subtler and less invasive way to achieve results with a much shorter recovery time.

Hair removal

Shaving, electrolysis, and waxing are temporary solutions for hair removal, but the Icon can offer permanent solutions in just a few visits. The laser targets cells responsible for the growth of new hair, knocking out unwanted hair at the source.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are an extremely common problem, especially for women. The Icon can reduce the appearance of these marks and cause them to fade in as little as 3-5 appointments. The laser encourages collagen production to smooth out skin and fade discolorations.

Scarring

The Icon’s fractional laser can also be used to disrupt scar tissue and trigger your body to produce new tissue in its wake. The Icon is among the most effective scar removal treatments available today and can tackle acne scars and surgical scars alike.

Hyperpigmentation and skin resurfacing

Over time, aging and exposure to sunlight can have a number of negative effects on your skin, including spots called hyperpigmentation, changes in your skin’s texture and color due to exposure to sunlight. These age spots can be removed easily with the Icon.

Leg Veins

With no incision, discomfort, or downtime, you can see a dramatic reduction in the appearance of spider and reticular leg veins in just a few 30-minute appointments. The Icon laser causes these veins to constrict, thus reducing their appearance without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Skin Revitalization

With no incision, discomfort, or downtime, you can see a dramatic reduction in the appearance of spider and reticular leg veins in just a few 30-minute appointments. The Icon laser causes these veins to constrict, thus reducing their appearance without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Is the Icon right for me?

One of the major advantages of Icon is that it can be used on a wide variety of skin tones and skin types, making the cosmetic power of this fractional laser accessible to all. Furthermore, treatment with the Icon is usually painless and takes about 30 minutes to an hour per appointment.
