Laser Skin Rejuvenation
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Aging, sun damage, poor nutrition and toxins can all affect the look of your skin. Icon laser treatments can reverse the appearance of aging, while restoring a more youthful skin tone and texture. While invasive plastic procedures can leave you in recovery for weeks and potentially cause unsightly scars, laser skin resurfacing works with your body to rejuvenate skin naturally without downtime or major side effects.
How do Icon laser treatments work?
A fractional laser light gently penetrates the surface of your skin to increase cell turnover. The treatment encourages collagen production to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and scars. It also breaks up dark spots so that the extra pigmentation can be removed by your system. As a result, your skin will look years younger without the painful side effects associated with more invasive procedures.
Can laser resurfacing work on deep wrinkles?
Because laser resurfacing works with your body's natural ability to restore itself, laser resurfacing will improve the overall look and feel of your skin. This includes the reduction of deep wrinkles and fine lines as new, healthy cell generation is promoted following treatment.
What can I expect during a laser resurfacing treatment?
The average treatment can be completed in under 30 minutes. You may experience a tingling sensation that some consider uncomfortable. A cooling anesthetic lotion can be applied to reduce discomfort during the treatment. After the procedure is completed, there is virtually no down time and most patients will start to notice results after just one appointment.
How many sessions of laser resurfacing are needed?
Many patients see results after just one treatment, but most patients will require multiple sessions to achieve the best results. We’ll work with you to design a customized plan to help you achieve optimal results.
