ICON Laser Aesthetics Specialists located in Stuart, VA
The aging process affects the skin in many ways: fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, and spider veins can all impact a person’s appearance at the same time. So it only makes sense that the best results would come from a treatment that can address all of these signs of aging at the same time.Patrick County Family Practice of Virginia now has the solution.
Astrid Cole, RN, at Patrick County Family Practice in Stuart, Virginia, is excited to provide treatments with the versatile, effective Icon® laser. The Icon system is a multifaceted aesthetic platform that offers both intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy and laser treatments. The Icon is used to address numerous skin complaints with ablative fractional laser technology and is beneficial for most skin types.
Icon energy is delivered deep into your skin, underneath the surface layer. As a result, new cells and collagen, a skin-strengthening compound, are stimulated to develop. They fill in lines and tighten your skin, reducing creases, laxity, and wrinkles. With Icon, you maintain your natural look but your complexion appears smoother and more radiant.
The ICON laser is one of the most versatile, effective laser treatments available, and we’re proud to offer this option to our Stuart, Virginia patients. Depending on your unique needs, we can customize the ICON laser to address a number of skin problems on the face or body.

The new, healthier tissue replaces the irregular tone and texture, so you look younger and more vibrant.
ICON Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Astrid Cole can calibrate the laser energy of the Icon laser to destroy hair follicles in specified treatment areas and permanently reduce or eliminate hair growth. Just about any area of your body where there is unwanted hair is treatable, including your:
- Legs and arms
- Bikini line
- Chest and back
- Chin and upper lip
*Multiple sessions are required in order to effectively target all the unwanted hairs when they’re in a growth cycle, but each session is fast and simple.
ICON Laser Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks develop during periods of rapid weight gain, such as pregnancy. You’ll notice the marks look purplish, red, or brown at first, and then fade to a silvery white over time. If you’re self-conscious about stretch marks, Icon treatment can help by stimulating the production of new collagen, which enhances the quality of the tissue at the site of your stretch marks.
ICON Laser Treatments Recovery and Down-time
Recovery takes about four days and there are no long-term side effects with Icon, unlike those you can experience with invasive surgery.
