The Icon laser and intense pulsed light
The Icon laser is a cutting-edge system with seven handpieces for flexible treatment. Using the latest in laser technology, the Icon gives Dr. Needell the power to customize your skin rejuvenation treatment and deliver significant results. Whether your skin may benefit from the high-speed facial resurfacing microlens or handheld lasers for targeted treatment, the Icon is a popular and customizable option for tackling common skin imperfections.
The Icon laser uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to deliver unparalleled power and skin correction. Optimized light energy is focused on your treatment areas, applying numerous wavelengths to your skin instead of just one. Sometimes called photorejuvenation, IPL penetrates the top layer of your skin safely and promotes rejuvenation below the surface.
IPL therapy with the Icon system gently heats uneven pigmentation in your skin and destroys the irregular coloring. Over time, your skin replaces the damaged cells with healthy ones, which evens your skin tone and smooths the surface.
Skin rejuvenation without invasive procedures
With the Icon laser, Dr. Needell addresses a variety of common skin concerns without the need for cosmetic surgery. Laser treatment with the Icon system is a popular cosmetic procedure with real results. It’s a noninvasive, effective IPL system that treats:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Broken blood vessels
- Unsightly veins
- Unwanted hair
Equipped with a live melanin reader, the Icon system can target uneven pigmentation below the surface of your skin. IPL destroys the uneven pigmentation caused by scars, rosacea, and more, encouraging healthy cell regeneration. The laser resurfaces your skin, boosting collagen production and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
During treatment, the patented cooling technology of Icon helps keep your skin comfortable.
Dr. Needell develops a customized treatment plan for you that addresses your most frustrating skin concerns. Some procedures, like the popular facial resurfacing treatment, take just 15 minutes with the Icon laser. Side effects of treatment are minimal, and you’ll likely be able to return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our office.
For a fresh look and rejuvenated skin without surgery or downtime, patients are turning to the Icon laser system. Skin imperfections can affect you, regardless of your age.
