Icon® Fractional Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Combine with other treatments to obtain maximum results.
Uneven skin tone is the reason why people look older than they are. The cumulative effects of time, sun, pollution, stress and fatigue can keep your skin from looking as young as you feel. Ablative skin resurfacing uses fractional technology delivering microbeams of energy to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. This treatment stimulates the body’s own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin cells with fresh, healthy ones leaving your skin smooth, even-toned, and younger.
You can expect two levels of results, immediate and progressive. Immediately after initial healing is complete, the surface of your skin will feel softer and tone will start to become even. Progressive results occur over the next three to six months as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal. This is effective for skin tightening, acne and surgical scars, wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, improving skin tone and texture and stretch marks.
Treatments are 30 min, there is moderate discomfort which is mitigated with a topical numbing cream and there is some downtime (similar to a sunburn, lasting 3 to 7 days). Skin resurfacing is a great treatment to combine with IPL and other anti-aging treatments, i.e. Botox and Filler. During your consultation, the appropriate treatment plan to achieve your desired results will be discussed with you.
