Skin Renewal – Laser Resurfacing

There are many common aesthetic concerns that bother us with age. Some of these include sun-damage, fine lines, stretch marks and even surgical or acne scars. These bothersome aesthetic conditions can be difficult to improve with other solutions but, with our ICON™ laser technology, we can improve your skin quickly and easily. In just a few short treatment sessions you will see results in both the tone and texture of your skin, leaving you with the skin you’ve been wanting.

How Does It Work?

ICON™ utilizes fractional laser technology to deliver specialized pulses of energy into your skin and targeting your unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the area that was treated. Over the next few weeks, you will see continued improvement in both the coloration and smoothness of your skin. 

What Should I Expect During The Treatment?

Depending on the size of the area being treated, sessions typically take less than 30 minutes. First, you will be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the laser during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the ICON™ handpiece over the treatment area. During this, the laser will be delivering energy into your skin. Depending on the care option we select, you may feel nothing during treatment or mild discomfort. Post-treatment instructions will be provided to manage pain if necessary. You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day. Follow up treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart if needed. 

If you are a laser resurfacing patient, please remove all make-up and lotions prior to treatment. At least four weeks before your appointment, please discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment.

What Are The Post Treatment Instructions?

Immediately after the treatment, redness, swelling and/or brown debris at surface of the skin is common and typically lasts 2-24 hours but could last up to 3-5 days in some cases. 

Gentle cleansing and use of non-irritating cosmetics are permitted after treatment. Avoid sun exposure on the treated area and use a sunscreen SPF 45 or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment. 

Am I a Good Candidate? 

ICON™ can be safely used on most skin types. During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors. 

What Type of Result Can I Expect

You can expect to see an improved appearance of your skin tone and texture over the first 6 weeks after your treatment. 

How Long Does the Treatment Take? 

This is dependent on the size of the area and the condition being treated, however, most sessions take no longer than 30 minutes. 

What Does the Treatment Feel Like? 

Most people feel mild discomfort during the treatment but speak to your provider regarding pain management options. 

How Many Treatments Will I Need? 

Depending on the condition being treated 1-3 treatment sessions are recommended for skin renewal and 3-5+ sessions are recommended for stretch marks and scars. 

How Far Apart Are Treatment Sessions? 

Treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart. 

How Much Does The Treatment Cost? 

Treatment costs vary depending on the size of the area and condition being treated. 

How Quickly Will I Recover? 

Typically, you can resume regular daily activities the same day as your treatment. If a more aggressive treatment if performed you may require a couple days of healing. 

Are There Any Side Effects? 

Immediately after the treatment, redness, swelling and/or brown debris at surface of the skin is common and typically lasts 2-24 hours but could last up to 3-5 days in some cases. We will discuss any other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you during the consultation.
