Icon Laser Q & A

What is Icon?

The Icon laser skin resurfacing system uses noninvasive light-based technology to improve the appearance of your skin. It can help:

  • Remove unwanted facial/body hair
  • Erase wrinkles and fine lines
  • Fade acne scars and pigmentation
  • Treat rosacea or other skin problems

Hampstead Family Medicine and Burgaw Medical Center offer several different Icon treatments, including:

  • Icon MaxG™: Fades spider veins, rosacea, and other skin lesions
  • Icon MaxR™: Removes unwanted hair on the face or body
  • Icon MaxY™: Erases brown pigmentation like freckles and sun spots
  • Icon 1540™: Rejuvenates skin by treating wrinkles and fine lines

Because it’s noninvasive, with the Icon laser there's no scarring, painful incisions, or lengthy recovery time. Best of all, you don't need to make an extra trip to another location. You can receive your Icon treatments at Dr. Rezk's office.

Is Icon right for me?

Icon is a safe and effective option for most patients. Because Icon treatments don't involve surgery, they're safe for patients with a wide range of medical conditions. But Icon may not be right for everyone.

If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, you may need to avoid laser skin treatments. Patients with certain skin infections or clotting disorders also might not be ideal candidates for Icon. Dr. Rezk and his team can help you decide if Icon meets your needs during your consultation.

How does Icon work?

The Icon laser targets and destroys areas of high pigmentation in your skin. The laser can fade freckles, scars, stretch marks, broken blood vessels, and other imperfections.

It also targets the pigmentation in hair follicles and destroys them. This process can help remove unwanted hair on your face or body. Icon treatments are long-lasting and can result in permanent hair removal.

The laser doesn't harm healthy tissue in the surrounding area. In fact, Icon helps to boost your skin's collagen production and increases elastin. Your skin becomes smoother, firmer, and more youthful looking.

What can I expect from an Icon treatment?

Icon treatments are performed on an outpatient basis. Most procedures take just 30-45 minutes and have no downtime. You can generally return to your normal activities right away. Some patients even receive Icon treatments during their lunch break.

You may need several treatments to achieve your desired results. Dr. Rezk and his staff can help you decide which treatments are best for you and how many you'll need.
