Icon Q & A

What is the ICON laser?

The ICON™ Aesthetic System features multiple platforms, including intense pulsed light therapy and laser treatments, to address numerous skin complaints. The ICON features ablative fractional laser technology that’s effective on most skin types.

How does the ICON address wrinkles and lines?

The ICON delivers energy deep into the skin, stimulating the development of new cells and collagen. Collagen is a skin-strengthening tissue that can fill in lines and tighten skin. Treatments preserve the natural look of your face while smoothing out lines and creases. You recover in as few as four days and experience no long-term side effects like you would with invasive surgery.

The ICON laser can also resurface your complexion to improve the way the skin looks and feels. Skin resurfacing can improve your skin by addressing multiple concerns, including:


  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Irregular skin tone or texture
  • Acne and surgical scars

The laser energy extends through your outer layers of skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, which results in new, healthier tissue. As a result, you look younger and more vibrant.


Is hair removal therapy available?

Yes. The ICON allows Dr. Wei to target areas of your body where you have unwanted hair. The laser treatment penetrates your outer layer of skin and destroys hair follicles while they’re in a growth cycle, so hair cannot grow back. Multiple sessions are required to target all follicles while they’re in the right cycle.


You can treat common areas that have unwanted hair, such as your:

  • Chin and upper lip
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Legs and arms


The laser hair removal approach is fast, simple, and safe for most skin types.

Can the ICON laser reduce the appearance of stretch marks?

You may develop stretch marks during pregnancy or other periods of rapid weight gain. These striations appear reddish purple and then fade to white over time, and they can mar your skin and can make you feel self-conscious. Dr. Wei uses the ICON laser to improve the appearance of these stretch marks. ICON’s energy stimulates the production of new collagen to improve smoothness at the site of the marks and also targets stretch mark discoloration.
