What is the ICON 1540 Fractional Laser?
Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center in Brooklyn, NY offers the Icon™ 1540 Fractional Laser created by Cynosure. This is an innovative fractional erbium laser that alters damaged skin as well as stimulates the skin to produce new collagen.
How does the ICON Fractional Laser work?
Icon™ utilizes fractional laser technology to deliver specialized pulses of energy into your skin and targeting your unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin (that is more even in both color and texture) in the area that was treated.
