Laser Q & A

Is the ICON laser system safe?

Yes. The ICON laser system uses fractional laser energy that travels deep into the layers of your skin without causing damage to surrounding tissue or skin.

The team of doctors at Port St. Lucie Pain & Medical Institute, home of Bossa Nova Lasers and Cosmetic Medicine effectively use the ICON laser to perform a number of cosmetic procedures, including:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Laser hair removal
  • Scar and stretch mark reduction


Treatments are noninvasive and you can expect to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.

How does an ICON laser treatment rejuvenate skin?

The ICON laser stimulates your body’s natural healing process. Your body responds to the controlled injury by producing new collagen to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, smooth acne scars, and take years off the appearance of your skin.

You may not see immediate results following your laser treatment, but over time as more collagen grows, you enjoy optimal benefits in your skin with long-lasting results.

What is skin resurfacing?

The ICON laser system is also effective in skin resurfacing techniques. The laser energy removes the outer layer of thickened, damaged skin without harming the skin underneath. New collagen forms, smoothing out skin and diminishing common flaws like:

  • Scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tones


As your skin heals, you can enjoy younger-looking, healthier, and damage-free skin.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatments?

The ICON laser system targets the pigments in your hair follicles, delivering energy to break down the follicle and destroy it permanently.

Laser hair removal is a great option for eliminating unwanted body hair on various areas of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area


Your doctor ensures you’re comfortable during the in-office hair removal treatments. Most people report treatments feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin, and your doctor can apply a topical numbing cream to prevent discomfort during treatment.

Following the laser procedure, you can expect to return to your normal activities. The only limitation is avoiding sun exposure to the treatment area while your skin heals.

You should also use a high-quality moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent excessive dryness common after the laser treatments offered at Port St. Lucie Pain & Medical Institute, home of Bossa Nova Lasers and Cosmetic Medicine.
