Icon Laser Q & A
What is the Icon™ laser?
The Icon laser is an innovative aesthetics technology that allows the practitioners at Central Jersey Family Physicians to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns. The laser has multiple handpieces that make it useful for addressing skin conditions, the signs of aging, unwanted hair, and more.
How can the Icon laser be used?
Central Jersey Family Physicians uses the Icon laser for:
Are wrinkles and sagging skin making you look older than you feel? The Icon laser can stimulate the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the protein that helps it stay taut, elastic, and plump, minimizing the signs of aging.
Removal of unwanted skin features
Your Central Jersey Family Physicians practitioner can adjust the laser to focus on undesirable blemishes and skin concerns, including:
Surgery and acne scars
By directing the laser into the specific unwanted blemishes, your Central Jersey Family Physicians doctor can safely break them down. Over the coming weeks, your body naturally processes the blemish away, reducing or even eliminating its appearance.
The Icon laser can destroy hair follicles, preventing them from growing hair in the future. You can get Icon laser treatment to permanently remove hair from virtually any part of your body.
What should I expect during and after Icon laser treatment?
The Icon laser is designed with your comfort in mind. At most, you may feel a sensation like a rubber band being snapped against your skin.
Because this treatment is noninvasive, there is no downtime necessary. You can get your Icon laser treatment and continue with your usual daily activities immediately after.
Some people see their desired results with just one Icon laser treatment. Others choose to have multiple treatments to achieve their aesthetic goals. This is especially true of laser hair removal. Your Central Jersey Family Practitioner talks with you about your cosmetic goals then formulates an Icon laser treatment plan to help you reach them. This gives you an idea of how many sessions you will likely need.
