What is Cynosure Icon?
The Icon is a high technology used in treating different skin problems, minimizing the recovery time with its non-ablative (non-peeling) feature. The Icon device uses fractional laser technology that stimulates regeneration. With this technology, by applying controlled heat damage to both the upper and lower layers of the skin, collagen production and self-renewal of the skin are triggered.
It can be applied to all skin types, from the lightest to the darkest, and the risk of side effects is very low. Combining many features in a single device offers users a wide range of treatments on all skin types, from epilation to wrinkles, surgery, and acne scars to stretch marks. Cynosure Icon is the most preferred fractional laser technology after surgical methods in aesthetic applications, as it is FDA-approved in all areas of use and is the only FDA-approved device that can be used for crack treatment.
How is Cynosure Icon applied?
Before applying the Icon, anesthetic cream is applied to the skin so that no pain is felt during the procedure. With the help of a melanin measuring device, skin melanin is measured, and a personalized application is made in accordance with the melanin ratio of each patient.
The Icon triggers the collagen production of the skin, thus renewing and rejuvenating the skin by heating the skin and causing controlled damage. In addition to the anesthetic cream, patients do not feel any pain thanks to the contact cooling system that keeps the temperature constant throughout the procedure.
To whom Cynosure Icon cannot be applied
It cannot be applied to those with active eczema, open wounds, pregnant women, and bipolar individuals.
