Icon Max G Laser

Sun damage and the natural ageing process really starts to affect the appearance of your skin after the age of 30 but light-based systems such as ICON MAX G are capable of treating these common skin concerns.

What exactly is ICON MAX G?

Over time, a number of pigmented and vascular imperfections can appear on your skin, which prevents you from feeling your best.

Sun damage and the natural ageing process really starts to affect the appearance of your skin after the age of 30 but light-based systems such as ICON MAX G are capable of treating these common skin concerns.

The ICON MAX G system uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to penetrate deep under the surface layer of the skin in order to treat issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, poor skin texture and sun damage.


What to Expect During Your ICON MAX G Treatment

Was your skin has been prepped and you are wearing protective eyewear, the ICON MAX G laser head will be moved across the surface of your skin.

As your skin absorbs the low-level light energy, it breaks up the broken vessels and pigmented lesions, while increasing collagen production. The end result is smoother, tighter skin with an even tone.

The average treatment lasts about 30 minutes and patients can expect to feel a sensation that’s similar to an elastic band being snapped against your skin.

Since no downtime is required, patients are free to return to their normal routine directly after their session.

ICON MAX G Treatments: What Patients Need to Know

  • Multiple sessions produce better results. To achieve the best results, 4 to 5 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart are recommended. However, this will differ for everyone and is dependent on the condition of the patient’s skin
  • Skin sensitivity can be expected. Most patients can expect to feel like they have mild sunburn for a day or two after their treatments. It’s also not uncommon for any blood vessels to change colour following an ICON MAX G session
  • Direct sun exposure should be avoided. Since your skin will be sensitive after your treatment, direct sun exposure should be avoided for at least a week. There are also specific products that should be avoided but this will be covered in your aftercare instructions
  • Results will be visible after 2 weeks. Most patients can expect to see a noticeable difference 2 weeks after their treatment but blood vessels and imperfections do fade gradually over the course of 10 to 14 days
  • Treatments are not ideal for all skin tones. Patients with lighter skin tones are better candidates for ICON MAX G treatments. IPL sessions can cause hyperpigmentation in patients with darker skin tones
