Icon Q & A

What is Icon?
Icon by Cynosure is an industry-leading platform consisting of laser therapies and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies, as well as Skintel™ — a live melanin reader. This non-invasive aesthetic system is designed to target problem areas and treat a wide variety of skin issues, such as:

  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Leg veins
  • Hair growth

In just one single treatment, Icon can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other skin issues, with little to no downtime.

What does Icon treat?
There are plenty of ways Icon laser treatments can improve your skin’s appearance and natural elasticity, including:

Wrinkle reduction
Non-ablative fractional laser technology penetrates your skin layers to reduce wrinkles and acts as an anti-aging agent, stimulating collagen and regenerating your skin for a more youthful appearance. After your first treatment, you will notice a dramatic reduction in crow’s feet, fine lines, and facial veins.

Scar treatment
Icon’s innovative laser technology ]reduces the appearance of both acne scars and surgical scars without affecting the surrounding skin tissue. To help smooth out your skin and minimize scarring, this non-invasive laser penetrates targeted areas to break up scar tissue, revealing more even-looking skin. Depending on the severity of your scars, Dr. Bartolome and the team at About Face Hawaii may recommend scheduling multiple sessions.

Stretch mark reduction
Stretch marks appear when your skin has stretched too quickly, which is why you often see them during puberty and pregnancy. Fortunately, Icon’s advanced laser technology can help break down the tissue in your stretch marks and regenerate smooth, flawless skin. While it may take a few sessions to completely diminish your stretch marks, each treatment requires no recovery.

Skin resurfacing
Forget invasive surgery and weeks of downtime. With Icon laser therapies, you can improve the appearance of your skin in just one session. Laser skin resurfacing can help reduce:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage and brown spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Skin redness and rosacea

The Icon laser works well on any skin type and skin tone, and because the aesthetic system is so versatile, you can target just about any skin problem.
