21 Jul Everything You Need to Know About the ICON Laser for Scarring Treatment
There comes a time in everyone’s lives where we want to look the best that we can and finally get around to putting that plan into action. If part of your plan is addressing scarring, caused by either acne or surgery, then the ICON fractional laser is a good therapy to consider using for maximum results.
What is the ICON laser?
The ICON laser is a part of an all in one machine, manufactured by Cynosure, that addresses a range of aesthetic issues. The machine comes with a 1540 fractional laser attachment that helps to address scarring. This non-ablative laser can be used to treat:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
This laser can be used on any area of the skin, including the face, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
The laser itself is non-ablative, so it targets the deeper dermis and does not remove the upper layer of the skin. Fractional lasers treat only very small areas, so the skin around the treated area remains intact.

ICON promotes renewal and regeneration of skin cells and can be particularly effective when used on red or purple scarring. Lasers are effective at rejuvenating the skin and have been used around the world for many years. Different types of lasers are more qualified than others to do different types of therapies, that is why the ICON Laser attachment is recommended for the types of scarring above.
ICON Laser treatment will generally require multiple sessions to reach maximum effect. This will generally be around 6to 10 sessions of treatment. Each session will take around 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area treated. You do need a little downtime between the sessions to ensure the skin has recovered in between. The treatment is suitable for all different skin types.
Results will vary from person to person. It is important that you have a consultation before undergoing laser therapy to determine whether it’s going to be the best solution for your skin issues.
The ICON machine may also be used to address other skin concerns, such as resurfacing and for a reduction in wrinkles. Please consult with your skin specialist if you are interested in any of these other treatments, to hear how ICON can address them alongside your scarring.
