There are many common aesthetic concerns that bother us with age. Some of these include sun-damage, fine lines, and stretch marks. 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.
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.
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.
Remove all make-up and lotions at treatment site prior to the treatment
At least 4 weeks prior to your appointment, discontinue the use of any form of Rentin A, unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment
Immediately after the treatment, redness, swelling of the skin is common and typically lasts 2-24 hours but could last up to 3-5 days in some cases. There may be a discoloration or brown debris at surface of the skin. This bronzing can last for up to 2 weeks.
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.
Icon™ is designed to treat stretch marks caused by pregnancy, weight gain and body changes due to puberty. Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
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.
You can expect to see an improved appearance of your skin tone and texture over the first 6 weeks after your treatment. Complete remolding can take up to 6 months which you will continue to see improvements.
This is dependent on the size of the area and the condition being treated, however most sessions take no longer than 30 minutes.
Depending on the condition being treated 1-3 treatment sessions are recommended for skin renewal and 3-6+ sessions are recommended for stretch marks and scars.
Most people feel mild discomfort during the treatment but speak to your provider regarding pain management options.
Treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart.
Pulses of fractional laser light are used to break down old and damaged tissue, triggering your body to create new tissue at the area being treated. This new tissue will provide healthier skin that’s more even in both color and texture.
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.
