Icon Laser

What is the Icon laser?

The Icon laser is an advanced aesthetic tool that uses nonablative and intense pulsed light (IPL™) laser technology to improve the look and health of your skin. As a nonablative laser, the Icon system doesn’t cause any damage to the surface of your skin, which means no downtime after treatment.

The Icon is the only aesthetic laser equipped with Skintel™, a melanin reader that allows the laser energy to adjust its wavelength based on the color of your skin, making it safe for all skin types.   

What skin flaws can the Icon laser treat?

The Icon laser is a multisystem platform that the team at Chicago Fat Doctor uses to treat a number of skin flaws. Some of the most common treatments include:

Permanent hair reduction

The team at Chicago Fat Doctor use the Icon laser for laser hair removal. The IPL laser has the ability to target hair follicles under your skin to destroy it without causing any damage to the surface skin. The laser is so safe, the team can remove unwanted hair from any part of your body, including your face, arms, back, chest, legs, and bikini area.

Pigmented skin

An uneven skin tone can make you look older than your years. The Icon laser energy can target the pigmentation in your skin, break it apart, and stimulate the skin to produce new cells, improving tone and texture. The specialists at Chicago Fat Doctor also use the Icon laser to treat rosacea, a chronic skin condition that causes redness on your nose and cheeks.

Spider veins and varicose veins

The IPL laser can destroy spider veins and small varicose veins anywhere on your body to improve tone.

The specialists at Chicago Fat Doctor also use the Icon laser to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, improve the look of acne scars and stretch marks, and enhance your overall appearance with fractional skin resurfacing.
