Am I a Candidate for the Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Procedure?
Candidates for the Cynosure® Icon™ laser have a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to stretch marks or scars.

When Will I See My Cynosure® Icon™ Laser Results?
While some patients can see results in as few as one to two treatments, others require three to five treatments to reduce the visibility of wrinkles or scars and improve skin texture. Your doctor will discuss your options (and the estimated number of sessions) with you during your consultation.
Over time, you will notice the gradual reduction of fine lines and the firmer appearance of your facial complexion.
