What is ICON Laser?
The industry-leading Cynosure® Icon™ platform uses Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) technologies to deliver energy to the skin, which is then absorbed by specific target chromophores (pigment or color) such as melanin, hemoglobin, and water.
The ICON laser is a versatile device that can treat various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and acne. It can also remove unwanted hair and reduce the appearance of spider veins. It’s a non-invasive treatment and has little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve their appearance without undergoing surgery.
It’s important to note that before undergoing non-invasive aesthetic treatments like Icon laser, you must consult with a qualified doctor to determine if the treatment is appropriate for you and discuss any potential risks or side effects.

IPL – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology used in various cosmetic and medical procedures. It uses a broad spectrum of light to target specific issues such as hair removal, acne, age spots, and broken capillaries. The light is emitted in short pulses and is absorbed by the targeted cells, causing them to be destroyed. IPL is often used as a non-invasive alternative to other treatments such as laser therapy.
Chromophore – A chromophore is a molecule or a group of atoms within a molecule that absorbs light at a specific wavelength. Chromophores are responsible for the color of a substance, as they are the part of the molecule that absorbs certain wavelengths of light and reflects others. Chromophores can be found in many natural and synthetic compounds, including pigments in plants and animals, dyes, and certain medications. In the context of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments, chromophores are specific molecules in the skin that absorbs the light energy delivered by the IPL device and causes a therapeutic effect like hair removal or pigmentation removal.
