The Icon laser is the most powerful and versatile laser platform available today.

Thanks to the Cynosure Icon laser, you can now look as young as you feel.
What Can the Cynosure Icon Laser Treat?

Quick, Safe, Comfortable Treatment
The Cynosure Icon laser includes multiple handpieces to provide the following popular treatments:
MaxG and MaxYs
The MaxG and MaxYs handpieces utilize intense pulsed light (ILP) technology to clear away pigmented and vascular lesions on the face, chest, arms and hands. They deliver specialized pulses of light to the skin, targeting brown spots, sun damage and veins. As the lesions absorb the energy, they are destroyed and filtered through the body’s natural healing process.
1540 Fractional Laser
The Icon 1540 Fractional laser is optimized to improve skin irregularities and reduce the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks. During treatment, the non-ablative laser delivers special columns of light to specific areas of the skin, creating micro-injuries and leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This triggers the body’s natural healing process and new, healthy skin is created to replace the damaged tissue. The fractional laser can be customized to focus on each patient’s problem area, whether they are concerned with fine lines, wrinkles or other imperfections.
The MaxR handpiece uses optimized light technology for the permanent reduction of unwanted hair on all skin types (including tanned skin). With a large spot size, the MaxR can quickly cover large surface areas such as the back, legs and chest.
The Icon laser platform features a state-of-the-art contact cooling system, which enhances patient comfort and protects skin from damage. This means a safer and more comfortable treatment experience.
The Icon laser also features the revolutionary Skintel Melanin Reader, which measures melanin density to accurately optimize treatment settings and treat areas of the body according to how much sun exposure they have received.
And, the Icon is equipped with a variety of microlenses, allowing for customizable treatment according to the unique needs of the patient. Lenses can be substituted to switch between high speed, quick treatments and deeper penetration in tough-to-reach areas as needed.
