ICON Laser Treatment in Charlotte

Ditesheim Cosmetic Surgery is proud to offer ICON Laser treatment in Charlotte, a noninvasive option which can benefit nearly any patient. The ICON Laser is an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) system which uses the Skintel Melanin Reader, the laser therapy industry’s only live melanin reader. This enhances both efficacy and safety for all patients.

What is Cynosure ICON?

Cynosure ICON is an advanced IPL laser system which can be used for a wide range of cosmetic treatments, including photofacials and laser hair reduction. With Cynosure ICON treatment in Charlotte, patients can achieve younger-looking skin and address aging signs without surgery, plus address pigmentation issues like rosacea that cannot be corrected with a plastic surgery procedure.

Essential ICON Laser Information

Average cost of ICON laser treatment ranges from about $100-600 depending on the treatment area.

How Does Cynosure ICON Work?

ICON delivers laser energy deep into the dermis layer of the skin to address aging signs where they first begin. The treatment also works using the Skintel Melanin Reader, an FDA-approved device that provides detailed information about your skin type that cannot be otherwise gathered. The Skintel Melanin Reader takes measurements from specific test areas on the skin. This information is then used to tailor the settings of the ICON system to best meet your goals and ensure safety throughout your treatment session.


ThreeForMe with Cynosure ICON addresses fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and unwanted visible veins through a single treatment. ThreeForMe is performed in two steps of ICON laser treatment. First, IPL is used to address sun damage including brown spots, broken blood vessels, rosacea, and freckles. Next, ICON’s “microbeam” technology is used to stimulate new collagen and elastin production for firmer skin. This second step improves texture issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, or scars.

Laser Hair Removal 

The ICON laser system can be used to permanently remove unwanted hair. The laser energy targets hair follicles, sufficiently damaging them so that hair no longer grows. At the same time, the surrounding skin is not affected or damaged in any way. Laser hair removal with the ICON system is fast and virtually pain-free. Multiple treatment sessions are required to address hair in various stages of growth over time. Contact our office if you have any other questions about laser hair removal!

Skin Revitalization

ICON laser offers nonsurgical skin revitalization in Charlotte to improve the skin’s appearance and reduce sun damage, unwanted veins, or uneven skin tone through light-based technology. Specialized light pulses precisely target unwanted pigmentation including redness or brown spots, breaking apart pigment which then disappears over time with the body’s natural healing process.

Scar or Stretch Mark Removal 

Removing stretch marks and scars, including surgical scars or acne scars, is simple, fast, and virtually pain-free with ICON laser treatment. The fractional laser is used to target the pigment of scars or stretch marks while increasing collagen production for smoother skin. This treatment improves both the pigment and texture of a scar or stretch mark.
