Icon Laser Q & A

What issues does the Icon laser treat?

Because the Icon laser is so advanced, Dr. Giannakakos uses it to correct all kinds of skin ailments. The system can improve the appearance of:

  • Facial blood vessels
  • Skin hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Surgical and acne scars
  • Varicose and spider veins

How does the Icon laser work?

The Icon Aesthetic System uses laser heat energy to resolve aesthetic skin issues. During treatments, Icon’s handheld attachment delivers safe waves of heat energy to deep layers of your skin. As cells absorb this energy, it triggers a healing process by signaling that the area is injured.

Over time, the old damaged cells get pushed out and new cells and tissues start to surface. Your “new” skin is visibly vibrant, firmer, and tighter with a more even-toned appearance.

While most men and women start noticing an improvement in their skin’s appearance shortly after their first visit, Dr. Giannakakos generally recommends having several treatments for optimal results.

Your treatment plan might include two to three sessions, each spaced about a month apart. With each treatment, you’re going to notice an improvement in your skin.  

What is the ThreeForMe™ treatment?

ThreeForMe is a revolutionary treatment plan that targets three of the most common skin complaints: wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins. Dr. Giannakakos can treat all of these issues during a single session with the proven Icon ThreeForMe treatment.

What’s particularly beneficial about ThreeForMe — aside from saving you time — is that results are permanent. Because the Icon laser stimulates new skin cell and tissue growth, your old damaged skin is truly being replaced.

You’re still going to continue to age gradually after the procedure, and exposing your skin to the sun can lead to additional wrinkles, sun damage, or other issues later on. This is why it’s important to wear sunscreen daily and learn to care for your skin at home following your treatment.
