A robust sense of self-esteem is essential for overall health and well-being, but signs of aging, blemishes, and scarring can be embarrassing and have an adverse effect on your self-confidence. The Icon™ aesthetic platform from Cynosure is an advanced laser system that can tighten skin, remove scar tissue, and reduce unwanted hair. To find out how the highly trained team at High Rock Internal Medicine treats a range of skin conditions with the Icon laser, call the office in Lexington, North Carolina, today, or make an appointment online.
The Icon aesthetic platform is an industry-leading, multipurpose laser system designed to provide an array of safe, effective cosmetic treatments. With multiple handpieces and settings, the skilled team at High Rock Internal Medicine can address a variety of skin conditions in various areas of the body. Icon laser technology is FDA-approved; treatments are nonsurgical and require no downtime.
Icon employs state-of-the-art laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to target cells beneath the surface of the skin. The concentrated light energy stimulates your body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen production, increasing circulation, and eliminating unwanted pigmentation or tissue. Laser settings stimulate cell renewal to tighten and revitalize skin, while IPL therapy is used to break apart scar tissue or damage hair follicles for laser hair reduction.
Icon treatments address visible signs of aging and other blemishes and provide dramatic skin revitalization and rejuvenation. Some of the most common conditions that the team at High Rock Internal Medicine treats with the Icon aesthetic system include:
In addition to laser skin resurfacing, Icon can reduce the regrowth of unwanted facial and body hair.
You’ll be given a protective eye shield, and recline in a comfortable position for your Icon treatment. Your High Rock Internal Medicine provider cleanses the target area and applies a special gel that allows the Icon handpiece to glide smoothly over your skin.
Icon treatments aren’t painful and don’t require anesthesia. You may feel a cold sensation and a light stinging similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Treatments are short, and most people find the procedure easy to tolerate.
You’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately following your Icon treatment. Your skin may feel warm and have some redness around the treated area, similar to a light sunburn. This typically subsides within a few days.
