8 Amazing Benefits of the Icon Laser

Laser technology has revolutionized the world of medical aesthetic treatments, and among this innovative technology, the Icon™ Aesthetic System takes treatments and results to a whole new level. 

As one of the most versatile laser systems on the market today, the Icon laser allows the highly skilled aesthetic professionals at NUWA WORLD in Wildwood, Florida, under the direction of Uzoma K. Nwaubani, MD, to offer a variety of effective treatments for aesthetic concerns with minimal discomfort and downtime. 

Here, we explain eight amazing benefits of the Icon laser to help you decide which treatments are right for you. 

The Icon laser is an all-in-one aesthetic system

Some lasers use specific wavelengths of thermal energy for treatments, while others use various wavelengths of intense pulsed light. 

The Icon system is unique in that it combines nonablative laser energy with intense pulses of light to send the energy deep beneath the surface of your skin. When this happens, it triggers your body’s natural healing response, prompting fresh new collagen and elastin production — two crucial elements of smooth, hydrated, glowing skin. 

Since you naturally lose collagen and elastin as you age, Icon laser treatments help to reduce the many signs of aging and restore your skin’s youthful glow from the inside out. The versatility of the Icon aesthetic system is truly unsurpassed. 

Different problems, one solution

The reason the Icon laser is so popular is because it’s an efficient multitasker, allowing our medical aesthetic specialists to offer you multiple therapies all at once for so many common skin concerns including: 

Visible spider veins on your legs and face

It takes intense laser energy from the Icon to directly target blood vessels in your legs, face, or other areas to instantly constrict and destroy these unsightly spider veins. And even though Icon is tough on unattractive veins, treatments won’t harm your skin. Your skin may get warm, but it won’t overheat, thanks to the Icon laser’s built-in Advanced Contact Cooling™ mechanism.  

Melasma and age spots

If you have dark areas of skin as a result of melasma, sun damage, or age spots, the Icon laser is an ideal solution. Our skilled medical aesthetic specialists use the laser to deliver a photorejuvenation treatment to your skin. This causes the dark patches of skin to slough away, leaving you with a more even skin tone and rejuvenated complexion. 

Unsightly stretch marks

Pregnancy and weight gain are often the culprits for unattractive stretch marks. The Icon laser uses fractional laser light to encourage new cell production, including collagen and elastin, below the surface of your skin. After a few treatment sessions, as your body repairs the stretched skin with new, tighter cells, your stretch marks become much less noticeable.

Unwanted hair

Nobody really enjoys shaving and waxing, and think of all the time you spend removing hair that only grows back. The Icon laser has a solution for that with permanent hair reduction. Laser light energy destroys your hair follicles, stopping or greatly reducing hair growth on your legs, bikini area, under arms, and many other areas, so you may not have to shave as frequently, or at all.

Lines and wrinkles

Wrinkles can make you look older before your time, but the Icon reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by generating new tissue that contains collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin regains its supple, softer appearance, and wrinkles seem to fade into the background from whence they came. 

Don’t be surprised if you notice a visible difference after the first treatment, but two or more laser sessions deliver optimal results. 

Acne and surgical scars

If you’re bothered by prominent acne and surgical scars, they typically respond well to the Icon aesthetic system. Laser energy breaks down tough scar tissue while simultaneously boosting your skin’s collagen and elastin production. After a few treatments and time for your skin to repair itself, new cells replace the scar tissue for a smoother, more evenly toned appearance that blends with the surrounding skin in texture and color.

Uneven skin texture

When it comes to uneven skin texture, the Icon laser blasts short beams of energy into problem areas to address sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, scars, and other blemishes. The laser energy ignites new collagen production and builds new tissue so damaged and uneven skin texture becomes refreshed and resurfaced for a smoother appearance and feel. 

No downtime after treatments

For all the ways the Icon laser can transform your skin, it’s even more popular because it doesn’t require downtime after most therapies. That means you can get right back to your busy life after your appointment without further interruption to your schedule or time to heal. 

Depending on the treatment, you can often be in and out of our office in about 30 minutes or so. It’s really that simple to love your skin again.
