Proven Techniques, Outstanding Results
The Icon system's versatility is remarkable. It can be used to address many concerns, including:
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
Icon Treatment With a Facial Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Gross first assesses your skin using the Skintel® Melanin Reader, which precisely measures your skin tone and the melanin density in the treatment area. These readings enable Dr. Gross to choose treatment settings with accuracy unmatched by the much more subjective methods used in the past.
The Icon intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment is excellent for clearing hyperpigmentation, dark spots, sun damage, and redness, creating even skin tone without downtime. It delivers low-intensity light energy directly to the skin, causing very little discomfort.
Dr. Gross uses specialized handpieces to customize the treatment for your specific skin condition. IPL isn't technically a laser, but it uses light energy in much the same way to destroy pigmented and damaged skin cells and trigger the production of new collagen and cell growth.
"The Icon IPL is the gold standard for improving skin discolorations in a convenient, 20-minute treatment for red or brown spots, textural concerns, rosacea, and sun-damaged skin with no downtime."

A Smooth Recovery
Because the Icon IPL system offers non-ablative, non-invasive treatments, there is no downtime following a session. Depending on the specific condition being treated, you may need 2 to 3 treatment sessions to get the desired results. Some patients experience a little redness after their treatments, but it typically fades within hours or, at most, overnight. You may notice the pigmented spots darken initially after being treated. As the skin sheds damaged cells during the next 10 to 14 days, you'll see your skin tone become more even and clear.
It is important to wear sunscreen any time you go outside after undergoing an Icon treatment.
