ICON Laser Skin Resurfacing in Rancho Cucamonga

Fast, effective laser resurfacing for more flawless, radiant skin

The aging process affects the skin in many ways: fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and spider veins can all impact a person’s appearance at the same time. So it only makes sense that the best results would come from a treatment that can address all of these signs of aging at the same time.

The ICON Aesthetic System Laser by Cynosure can do just that. The ICON laser is one of the most versatile, effective laser treatments available, and we’re proud to offer this option to our patients.

We love this versatile laser skin resurfacing system, as it effectively addresses a number of common skin concerns like wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation!

How the ICON can help you improve your skin

You know the saying two heads are better than one? When it comes to treating moderate to severe skin blemishes, such as acne scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks, two laser wavelengths are often better than one. The ICON lets us use two different hand-pieces to target multiple skin concerns during each single treatment, dubbed a “Three for Me” laser treatment:

  • The MaxG uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to minimize spider veins, vascular lesions, sunspots, hyperpigmentation and redness
  • The 1540 Fractional Laser provides non-ablative laser resurfacing to stimulate collagen and elastin production for firmer, smoother skin and to reduce or eliminate fine lines, surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch marks
  • The ICON is the only laser that is FDA cleared for treating stretch marks.
  • Improved Skin Texture and Tone: ICON laser treatment can significantly enhance the overall texture and tone of the skin, making it smoother and more uniform.
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The laser promotes collagen and elastin production, which helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Scar Reduction: ICON laser is effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of skin blemishes.
  • Minimized Sun Damage and Age Spots: The treatment can target and diminish sun damage, age spots, and hyperpigmentation, leading to clearer, more even-toned skin.
  • Pore Size Reduction: Laser resurfacing can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.
  • Non-Invasive Procedure: ICON laser treatment is a non-surgical option, providing a less invasive alternative to more intensive cosmetic procedures.
  • Minimal Downtime: Recovery time is typically short, allowing patients to return to their normal activities relatively quickly.
  • Customizable Treatments: The intensity of the laser can be adjusted according to individual skin types and specific concerns, allowing for personalized treatment plans.
  • Stimulates Natural Healing: The laser promotes the body’s natural healing process, enhancing overall skin rejuvenation.
  • Effective for Various Skin Issues: Besides improving overall skin appearance, it can also be used to treat specific issues like facial veins and rosacea.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The effects of ICON laser resurfacing can last for several months to years, depending on your skin condition and lifestyle.
  • Safe for Various Skin Types: The ICON laser system is versatile and can be safely used on different skin types and tones.
  • Acne Scars: Scarring on the skin left by acne, which can be reduced or improved through ICON laser treatments.
  • Collagen: A protein providing skin structure and elasticity, often stimulated by laser treatments for enhanced skin quality.
  • Fractional Laser: A laser technology creating micro-injuries in the skin to promote healing and rejuvenation, used in ICON treatments.
  • Laser Resurfacing: A procedure using laser to improve skin appearance by removing skin layers, a key function of the ICON system.
  • Melanin: Skin pigment targeted in laser treatments for pigmentation issues.
  • Non-Ablative Laser: A laser type that heats underlying skin tissue without damaging the surface, potentially used in ICON treatments.
  • Pigmentation: The coloration of the skin, which can be evened out by ICON laser treatments.
  • Recovery Time: The healing period post-laser treatment, varying based on the treatment’s intensity.
  • Skin Rejuvenation: The process of making skin look younger and healthier.
  • Skin Texture: The surface quality of the skin, which ICON laser treatments can improve by addressing issues like roughness or unevenness.
  • Skin Tone: The overall color and uniformity of the skin’s appearance.
  • Spider Veins: Small, visible veins just under the skin’s surface, often treated with laser systems like ICON for cosmetic improvement.
  • Vascular Lesions: Abnormal blood vessels or vascular structures in the skin, which can be targeted and treated with ICON laser technology.

Dramatic results with fewer treatments and minimal downtime

Combining two laser wavelengths with ICON allows us to achieve dramatic improvements much more quickly compared to older lasers, often in as little as one treatment. As powerful as this combination laser treatment is, it’s minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime.

Depending on your needs, we can customize the ICON laser to address a number of skin problems on the face or body:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Spider veins & vascular lesions
  • Sun damage, freckles & hyperpigmentation
  • Acne & surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
Before and after ICON laser treatments

What to expect with ICON laser resurfacing in Rancho Cucamonga

Our experienced medical skin care professionals perform ICON laser resurfacing as an in-office treatment at Ahava Medspa at Inland Cosmetic Surgery. After cleansing your skin, we will apply a topical numbing cream to cool the skin and minimize discomfort during treatment.

Depending on your specific treatment plan, you may receive treatment with intense pulsed light, the 1545 Fractional Laser, or both. You can expect some minor redness or swelling immediately following treatment, but you may return to normal activity as long as you keep the area protected from the sun.

How many treatments will I need to see results?

Patients usually notice visible improvements after their first treatment, though a series of three to four treatments is typical to achieve optimal improvement in skin tone, texture and appearance. Five treatments are typically recommended to treat stretch marks.

Immediately after treatment, you may notice darkening of the treated skin; this is normal, and the outer layers will soon exfoliate to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. As your skin produces new collagen and elastin, you will notice a gradual reduction in fine lines as well as a firmer skin appearance over several months following treatment.
