Wrinkles, Lines and Scars


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 it Works        

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 To Expect On The Day Of 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 skin renewal patient, please be aware of the following:

? Remove all make-up and lotions at treatment site prior to the treatment.

? At least 4 weeks prior to your appointment, discontinue unprotected sun
exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment.
