Banish age spots & scars with Icon

“As a new owner and an enthusiastic client, I have invested in the technology that supports my own anti-aging journey,” smiles Sandy Hogarth.

“That’s how I discovered Cynosure. They’re an industry leader in energy-based systems and are always looking for ways to stay ahead of the industry while bringing patients and providers the latest in treatments. What is important to me, was their non-invasive, anti-aging procedures.

It does skin resurfacing. It helps reduce acne scars and stretch marks. It fades age spots and dark marks – my hands look like they did in my 20s!”

About Cynosure MaxG IPL

With our innovative Cynosure Icon MaxG laser technology, you can quickly and safely leave age spots, pigmentation, stretch marks and acne scars behind. Even better, there’s little to no downtime so you have the smoother skin you want in just a few treatments.

  • Simple procedure with minimal discomfort
  • Quick, non-invasive treatment sessions
  • Excellent results

Lasers use pinpoint accuracy to target and break down scar tissue. The energy delivered causes them to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process revealing smoother, more even-looking skin. With each treatment even deep scars lighten in color and become more even in texture.

The treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

The Icon™ 1540 works best on shallow acne scars, such as rolling scars. With deeper acne scars, ablative fractionated laser resurfacing may be a better option.*

The Icon™ laser delivers heat to the deeper layers of the skin where the scars are located. The process will begin to initiate the body’s natural healing process to promote new collagen and elastin production. This new collagen and elastin helps to improve the skins tone and texture, while also helping to re-volumize the skin.*

Icon™ treatments are more effective if performed in a series of sessions. Each session treats approximately 20 – 25 % of the skin. Clinical studies indicate that an effective treatment regimen involves 3 to 5 treatments, spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. Certain conditions, such as severe acne scarring, may require more treatments for optimal results.*

Results will vary from patient to patient. You should begin to see some results 2-5 days after your skin resurfacing treatment. Your skin will be healing over the course of several days and you will be able to see gradual improvements in your skin as the weeks go by. *

There is no downtime after the procedure. Patients should avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process and for the first 3 months after treatment. Application of sunscreen is also recommended.*

While pain tolerance varies by person, we will make sure to provide a numbing agent prior to the treatment. The device also has a cooling mechanism to ease discomfort.*

*Disclaimer: Any specific claims or permanence length of results vary for each patient and are not guaranteed. Only a professional can determine what your specific treatment plan should be. Before any treatment, our trained and experienced Aesthetician will discuss your treatment plan and the results that can be achieved for you personally.
