Fast Facts

ICON Laser

The ICON laser uses powerful pulsed laser light technology to stimulate collagen production and increase cell turnover, helping to address a number of common skin conditions. It can be used all over the body, and a series of treatments can significantly improve skin quality, appearance and texture, remove wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of scars and stretch marks. The non-ablative (read: doesn’t harm the surface of your skin) laser is a useful tool for patients who desire resurfacing without the time off.

The Neurostrive medical team is proud to deliver our patients in Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Martin County, and South Florida the latest advancements in cosmetic laser treatments for the best possible results. Contact us today to schedule a consultation for a personalized treatment plan.

Am I a good candidate?

With the advanced technology of the ICON Fractional Laser, treatments can be safely used on most skin types. During your initial consultation, we will assess your skin and goals and determine if the treatment is right for you.

What areas of the body can be treated?

Virtually anywhere on the body can be safely and effectively treated such as: wrinkles and fine lines of the face, neck, and décolletage; acne scars of the face; stretch marks of the breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs; scars anywhere on the body; skin discoloration of the face and body.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends on what you’re getting treated, but we usually recommend 2-5 sessions of ICON laser treatments around 6-8 weeks apart for optimum results. Reducing scar tissue will be on the higher end of treatments needed, while skin rejuvenation and pigmentation will take less treatments. Our medical practitioner will discuss this with you during your initial consultation and help you form a plan.

Is the treatment painful?

The discomfort felt during the procedure is typically described by most of our patients as minor. Patients are also welcome to come in a bit early for their appointment to have a prescription topical numbing cream applied to the areas being treated.

Are there any side effects?

Following the procedure most patients experience redness and swelling in treated areas for a few hours. Rarely, this can last as long as 2 days. The areas can be masked with a physician approved foundation 24 hours following the procedure. As your new skin tissue is generated in the treated area you will notice positive changes in your skin that continue to occur for several months following the procedure.
