What are the benefits of an ICON laser treatment?
ICON laser treatments offer a non-invasive way to correct or reduce cosmetic imperfections. This provides a number of benefits, including lowering the risk of complications, such as bleeding and infections at the affected sites. These treatments have no downtime, so patients can go back to their day-to-day routines and activities. Patients also experience less discomfort with ICON laser treatments compared to more invasive, surgical treatments for cosmetic flaws.
1. Photo-Rejuvenation (IPL)
Photo rejuvenation with ICON Laser delivers intense pulsed light (IPL) to revitalize the skin. If you have freckles, moles, age spots, or vascular lesions on your face, chest, arms and hands, ICON treatments can treat them. These unsightly signs of aging commonly show up prematurely due to sun exposure. We can take precautionary steps to limit the amount of sunlight that hits our skin, but sun spots and skin imperfections are unavoidable. Thankfully, IPL light energy can be absorbed into the skin by the unwanted pigment and is then cleared away by the body. If you are looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization, ICON laser treatments are the gold standard.
Treatments are effective on all skin types, and they treat unwanted pigment without harming the surrounding areas. Usually with three sessions, you can expect an even skin tone and a decrease in the appearance of unwanted skin pigment. Following your procedure, the treated pigment is expected to appear darker, but soon it will fade and reveal a clear, more uniform look.
2. Skin Resurfacing
ICON can also treat texture irregularities like fine lines and wrinkles, and it can also improve the overall health of your skin. The ICON 1540 laser uses non-ablative fractional resurfacing to penetrate the top layer of your skin without damaging it. During the procedure, high-precision microbeams are delivered to the skin and create deep, narrow columns of skin coagulation surrounded by healthier, untreated skin. Over time, your skin will work to repair itself, and will replace any damaged skin with healthier, younger-looking skin. The ICON 1540 laser is perfect for the treatment of:
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
Following a treatment, you may experience redness and swelling for the first few days, but this will subside. Treatments are normally gentle, and do not require a lot of downtime. We recommend that you schedule multiple sessions for optimal results, but a treatment plan will be designed during your initial consultation.
