What is fractional laser treatment?
Fractional laser treatment is a non-surgical approach to skin revitalization and anti-aging. If you suffer from wrinkles, spider veins, rosacea, acne scars, and other signs of aging skin, then you may be the perfect candidate for this aesthetic treatment.
At Doctor Iggy Aesthetic Medicine, we use the ICON laser system, the only FDA-cleared laser system used to treat stretch marks. With ICON, we can address most of your skin concerns at the same time! Treatments do not require any surgery, and there is little to no downtime involved. You may be able to come in for a quick procedure and then return to your regular routine immediately.
How does ICON work?
The ICON laser system treats moderate-to-severe acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks (and more) with two laser wavelengths. This allows us to target multiple skin concerns during a single treatment session.
The MaxG handpiece uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to minimize spider veins, vascular lesions, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and redness. The 1540 fractional laser stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps to firm up the skin and smooth out/reduce wrinkles, surgical scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. The procedure is minimally invasive requires little to no downtime. We can customize your session based on your concerns and your goals.
What can I expect during treatments?
We perform ICON skin revitalization as an in-office treatment. After we cleanse your skin, we will apply a topical numbing cream to cool your skin and help minimize any discomfort you might feel during the treatment. During your initial complimentary consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan just for you.
During the procedure, you may receive treatment with the 1540 fractional laser, IPL, or both. This will depend on the skin concerns that you are looking to address. Using the handpieces, we will make a few passes on your skin to induce collagen and elastin production. After the session is over, you can expect some minor redness or swelling. This should fade eventually, and aside from needing to protect yourself from the sun, you can return to your normal activities.
When should I expect to see results?
Immediately after the procedure, you may notice darkening or reddening of the treated skin. Skin can sometimes appear swollen or puffy for several days following treatment. This is normal, and the outer layers of your skin will soon exfoliate to reveal younger-looking, smoother skin. As your skin produces new elastin and collagen, you may notice a gradual reduction in wrinkles. Over several months, you may notice firmer, healthier-looking skin.
Although patients usually notice visible improvements after one treatment, a series of 3-4 treatments is usually recommended to achieve optimal results. This is especially true if you are looking to improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin. Five or more treatments may be needed to treat acne scarring or stretch marks.
