WHAT IS ICON CLEAR?
This state of the art, Fraxel-like treatment resurfaces and repairs damaged and aging skin. Non-ablative, fractionated laser technology delivers microbeams of energy deep into the skin, stimulating the body’s repair mechanisms to correct:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Lip lines
- Acne scars
- Surgical/Body Scars
- Stretch Marks
- Texture irregularities
CYNOSURE ICON™: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY
The Cynosure Icon™ platform is the newest, safest and most advanced light-based technology available. Unlike other systems, the Icon platform:
- Accurately measures skin pigment with the Skintel® Melanin Reader™
- Has less downtime than Fraxel treatments
- Effectively treats Melasma
- Is safe for all skin types
Read on for more information about the Icon’s™ one-of-a-kind features.
The non-invasive, in-office procedure can be used to treat large areas (i.e. the full face) or used as a spot treatment (i.e. isolated surgical scars).
Three sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, are recommended for maximum results. Some may notice mild redness, swelling or a slight sun burn-like sensation that resolves within 2 to 24 hours after treatment.
ICON CLEAR vs. ABLATIVE LASERS
Icon Clear is designed to ultimately deliver the same results as a high impact, ablative resurfacing laser. Though ablative lasers (like Active Fx) only require one treatment, they often have significant downtime of at least 5 days. Icon Clear requires more treatment sessions, but each has minimal downtime.
Cynosure Icon™: Special Features
Skintel® Melanin Reader™ : Icon’s proprietary Skintel® Melanin Reader™ precisely and objectively measures the melanin content in your skin, allowing your practitioner to adjust your treatment settings to deliver the safest and most impactful treatment possible.
Less Downtime than Fraxel: Unlike Fraxel treatments, which tend to cause prolonged inflammation and swelling, the Icon’s™ fractionated energy deliver system delivers high-impact results with minimal downtime,
Melasma Treatment: Melasma is a particulary difficult condition to treat and is caused by a combination of factors that include hormone levels and genetic predisposition. Because melasma can be made worse by certain energy types, treatment options are limited. Icon’s™ fractionated microbeam energy is one of the few technologies that is calibrated to safely reduce the appearance of melasma without causing hyper- or hypo- pigmentation.
Safe for all Skin Types: The Icon™ has highly customizable setting options that can be adjusted to treat the full spectrum of skin types and tones.
