This treatment is done using the Icon Laser to do two steps or ‘passes”. The first pass uses a technology called intense pulsed light, or IPL. IPL helps to decrease sun damage including freckles, age spots, and unsightly veins, and rosacea. The second pass uses microbeam technology that damages the skin to generate new growth of collagen and elastin, which improves fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Three sessions are required, one month apart.

Thirty minutes

How many treatments will it take to see results?
