Schedule your procedure in El Campo, TX


We create some of our most fond memories under the glowing sun, but we are also unintentionally creating dark spots, sunspots, and other forms of skin damage at the same time. While we want to hold on to those special moments forever, we don’t necessarily want any skin damage to stick around. With Icon™ Laser treatments at Erwin Dermatology, we can safely and effectively eradicate these skin concerns while simultaneously restoring a more radiant and smoother complexion.

What Is Icon™ Laser?

Icon™ Laser is a skin revitalizing treatment that utilizes optimized pulsed light with many different wavelengths of light, each with a filter designed to target and treat specific concerns on the skin. A cooling handpiece is gently moved over the treatment area to address concerns such as:

  • Age spots
  • Brown spots
  • Sun damage
  • Facial veins

Icon™ laser treatments have additional benefits that encourage long-term improvement in the skin. These benefits include:

  • Collagen stimulation
  • Kickstarts the natural healing process
  • Non-invasive treatments
  • Little downtime

Icon™ Laser Treatments

After attending a consultation wherein your cosmetic goals are discussed, you will arrive for your first Icon™ Laser treatment. To begin treatment, you will be given protective eyewear, and a protectant serum will be applied to the face. Next, your provider will carefully glide the Icon™ Laser handheld device across your face. The device will emit a cooling sensation to ensure you remain comfortable, but a slight rubber-band snapping feeling may occur. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure can last for as little as a few minutes. Once your skin has been thoroughly treated, the protectant is removed before a cooling and soothing gel-like serum is applied.

Icon™ Laser Recovery

It is normal for the skin to feel warm after Icon™ Laser treatments. You will not need any bandages or healing ointments after treatment, as it is a non-invasive procedure. Your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn for a few days following treatment, but this should be no cause for concern. You will be advised to apply an SPF of 45 or higher during your recovery and beyond. You can expect light peeling and flaking for 7-21 days after treatment. Please do not pick at your skin, as your body will take care of the shedding on its own. You can expect continued improvement in the radiance, smoothness, and youthfulness of your skin over the next 6 weeks. Depending on your goals, you will need additional treatments to experience the best results possible. Moat patients require around 1-3 treatments.
