Aging affects your skin in several ways. There’s sun damage and wrinkles, fine lines, spider veins, dark spots, and even acne scars. All of which can impact your appearance and your confidence.

It makes sense, then, that the best results come from a safe and effective treatment that’s able to address all the signs of aging at the same time.

The team at Evia Medical Center use the ICON Laser from Cynosure to do just that. The laser is one of the most effective and versatile treatments around, and we’re proud to offer the treatment to help you achieve smoother, brighter, and glowing skin.

How ICON laser treatment works

ICON laser therapy uses pulse light technology. The technology makes use of many wavelengths of light along with certain filters to deliver the best wavelengths to treat your particular skin conditions and signs of aging.

We glide a handpiece over the area and specialized pulses of light hit your skin to target everything from sun-damaged vessels to brown spots without causing any harm to the surrounding skin.

Once the targeted area absorbs the light energy, it is destroyed and as your body naturally heals, the target (be it brown spots or acne scars) will slowly disappear. Brown spots, for example, will turn darker and then flake off over a few weeks post-procedure. Most people also notice an immediate improvement in their skin vessels with continued clearance over time.

What you can treat with ICON laser

The benefits for your skin

ICON laser treatment provides fast recovery compared to other, more invasive procedures. It takes just as few as four days, for instance, to recover from scar and wrinkle treatments.

The sessions take just an hour or less, and we can help treat multiple skin issues at once. Best of all, ICON laser is suitable for all skin types.

What to expect during treatment

The team of experienced medical skin care professionals at Evia Medical Center perform ICON laser treatment in the comfort of our offices. We start by cleansing your skin and may apply a topical numbing cream to help cool your skin and minimize any discomfort.

You’ll likely experience a little redness or swelling right after your treatment, but you can return to your daily activities right away, provided you keep the area protected from the sun.

While the duration of the treatment mostly depends on the size of the area as well as the condition we’re treating, your ICON laser session shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.

Considering laser treatment for your skin

The ICON laser system allows us to use different wavelengths, which means we can customize treatment to safely treat most skin types, so you can look forward to tighter, smoother, and brighter skin.

The best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is to book a personal skin consultation with the experienced skin care team at Evia Medical Center. Get in touch today to schedule an appointment.
