The Icon™ Non-Ablative Fractional device generates small beams of light onto selected areas of the skin. These microbeams penetrate the lower layers of the skin and stimulate the synthesis of newer collagen. In addition, the heat energy also stimulates the growth of more elastic fibers. The end result is filling up of the wrinkles with the newer collagen molecules and a skin that is tighter and smoother looking. The most common skin disorders treated with non-ablative fractional include revision of acne scars, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing stretch marks, and decreasing the intensity of melasma (paired with IPL).
