Laser skin resurfacing is available with both non-ablative and ablative lasers.
The 1540 (non-ablative fractional) and 2940 (ablative fractional) lasers treat fine lines, deep wrinkles, skin lesions, as well as surgical and acne scars with more power than other photo rejuvenation treatments. Both 1540/2940 lasers work by delivering micro-fractional laser columns to the skin which results in brand new skin stimulating the bodies natural collagen building response.*
With fractional approach to ablative laser treatments you receive the benefits of the powerful skin resurfacing offered with traditional ablative lasers without removing all of your epidermis. Fractional lasers treat micro columns of skin, allowing your body to recover faster while still giving significant results with only 1 or 2 treatments. In contrast, traditional non-fractionated ablative procedures will require up to 10 days of downtime!*
When compared to traditional laser resurfacing, Icon 1540/2940 produce similar results with much less downtime and produces impressive changes in skin texture, removal of wrinkles, dark (sun) spots and abnormal skin coloration.*

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser light pulses reach deep into the skin’s sub-layers creating micro-fractional columns to treat the aging support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of smooth, more youthful skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Icon Treatment?
If you have fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or on any area of your body including face, hands, and arms you may be a good candidate for a laser revitalization treatment. We recommend you book a free consultation to find the laser skin resurfacing treatment that is best for your skin type and goals.
What Side Effects Are Typical with the Treatment?
As with any medical procedure, side effects and healing time vary by patient and with the specific laser and power level used. Typical side effects from aggressive treatment include: swelling, redness and skin crusting. Skin redness typically lasts for several days to weeks, depending on the laser used the aggressiveness of the treatment.
Fractional laser treatments pose little risk for blistering or scarring. For patients with olive or darker skin, hyperpigmentation is a potential risk.
The 2940 ablative lasers used by New Radiance are fractionated. This provides increased control and faster healing. It also reduces the risk of potential side effects such as hypopigmentation.
Your free pre-treatment consultation will identify if you are a good candidate. At the consultation, you will be informed of the expected extent of your procedure to achieve your goals, the expected recovery period and how soon after the treatment you may expect to see full results.
What is the Difference Between Ablative and Non-ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Traditional ablative laser skin resurfacing removes the top layer of your skin. It is very effective at treating wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns. Ablative resurfacing actually removes the top layer of skin. This results in significant downtime for healing.*
Fractional ablative skin resurfacing removes a portion of the top layer of your skin. It is also very effective at treating wrinkles, scars, and other skin concerns, but without the longer downtime common with non-fractional laser treatments.*
Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is less invasive. Non-ablative procedures employ heat to stimulate cells and thicken the underlying collagen to improve your skin tone and elasticity. Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing does not remove all skin. This results in a more rapid recovery and less downtime.*
The Icon 2940 laser treatment only removes part of the skin by applying laser energy in a pattern. This produces dramatic results with less downtime and recovery.*
How Much Does the Treatment Cost?
Icon laser skin resurfacing treatment starts at $399 for full face treatment (not including neck) with 1540 laser. Total treatment cost depends on the number of treatments required to achieve your personal goals.
What Should I Expect During the Treatment?
We will apply a topical numbing cream to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. Icon laser skin resurfacing typically requires 30 to 60 minutes to perform. After the procedure, your skin may be covered with Aquaphor – a petroleum jelly – to protect your skin and promote faster healing.*
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
During your free consultation, we will advise you on the number of 1540 or 2940 laser treatments you’ll need to achieve your personal goals. Patients typically start with one treatment. Once the results of the first treatment are seen over several months, the treated area will be reassessed to determine if another treatment is needed.*
1540 and 2940 laser skin resurfacing results per treatment vary based on skin quality and thickness and the settings used on the device during the treatment. When more aggressive settings are used, patients typically see significant improvement with one treatment.*
