ICON SKIN REJUVENATION CARE SHEET

Icon Skin Rejuvenation, offers a safe, FDA-approved option for anti-aging, sun damage, skin rejuvenation, rosacea/vascular and acne. It works by utilizing high-intensity light pulses to target these specific skin conditions. Targeting the redness, bacteria or melanin (brown spots) – Icon Skin Rejuvenation can deliver light energy, causing them to disintegrate. During recovery, the skin beneath starts to heal naturally, replacing blemishes and damaged pigment cells with new, healthy ones.
