Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is an advanced aesthetic treatment that uses laser energy to improve the appearance of your skin. In addition to wrinkles and fine lines, the Icon laser can also improve skin tone and coloring, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and provide a solution to unwanted facial veins.

The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine also use the Icon laser to treat areas of unwanted hair, remove vascular lesions, varicose veins and spider veins, and lessen the appearance of stretch marks.

How can the Icon laser improve the look of my skin?

The energy the Icon laser produces stimulates your body’s production of collagen, which is the protein in your skin that makes it strong, flexible, and resilient, to rejuvenate your skin and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

The specialized laser is equipped with various microlenses that provide targeted energy to stimulate surface cells or cells deep in your dermis.

The SkinTel Melanin Reader allows the laser to adjust to various skin tones, making it safe for all skin colors.

What can I expect during treatment with the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is a noninvasive treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. To ease any discomfort during treatment, the aesthetic specialist may apply a numbing agent to your skin. During treatment, the Icon laser wand sends targeted energy to the cells in your skin to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate your appearance.

Treatment time varies depending on the areas being worked on. The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine provide an individualized treatment so you know what to expect.

After treatment, you may feel some discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn. The team may provide special creams and ointments to protect your skin.

It may take up to a week for your skin to fully heal from Icon laser treatment. If you need to go outside during the healing process, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun with protective clothing such as a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.

It may take up to three months for you to see the full effects of treatment.

How can I keep my skin looking youthful after treatment?

With good care, you can keep your youthful appearance after treatment for up to one year. Protection from the sun with daily sunblock and protective clothing is recommended.
