With the help of this treatment can help you minimize the appearance of scars for a few sessions in a non-surgical way with no downtime. Unlike surgical scar removal that requires incisions, Laser Scar Removal uses fractional laser light to break down scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue production.
This nonsurgical service option uses a fractional laser that’s ideal if you are seeking to minimize the appearance of surgical scars or acne scars on your face and body. The Icon™ system’s advanced technology provides treatments that are fast and safe for all skin types.
You can expect to see an improved appearance of your skin tone and texture over the first 6 weeks after your treatment. The scar will become more even in color and texture and it will blend more naturally into the surrounding skin.
|Service Time||5 - 30 mins|
|Sessions Required||3 - 5 Sessions|
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.
Icon™ is designed to treat surgical and acne scars on any area of the body, including the face.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 skin revitalization patient, please be aware of the following:
