The Icon Laser Process
The first step for any treatment at Revive Med Spa in Fairbanks, is to book a consultation with one of our expert providers. They will work with you to build the best treatment plan for you needs and help you decide whether the Icon laser will give you the best results based on your goals.
The Icon laser system can treat a variety of skin issues, sometimes in 1 session as with the ThreeForMe treatment. The treatments are performed in office by a trained provider using a gentle, non-invasive handheld device and only last up to 30 minutes. The Icon laser can be customized to the your specific skin concerns.
Many clients see dramatic results after just 1 treatment with the Icon laser. Combining 2 laser wavelengths means that better results are possible in fewer treatments than with traditional laser technologies. Even with how powerful it is, the Icon laser is still non-invasive, which means little to no downtime after your sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Icon laser treatment hurt?
The treatment is not considered painful. Some patients report a feeling like a “light rubber band snap” during treatment. Prior to using the laser, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream to enhance your comfort during the session.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients notice visible improvement after the first treatment. A series of 3 to 4 treatments is typical, but it depends on the nature of your skin concerns and the results you would like to achieve.
Does Icon work on stretch marks?
Yes. The 1540 fractional laser in the Icon system is the only non-ablative laser that’s FDA cleared for use on stretch marks. Stretch marks occur in the dermis layer of your skin, and require the penetration of a laser to stimulate the growth of collagen and remodel the dermal scars.
