Refreshing the quality and appearance of your skin is easy with the no down-time Icon 1540 Laser. This fractional erbium laser procedure resurfaces the skin to remove aging changes such as wrinkles and brown spots. The Icon 1540 stimulates new collagen production to plump the facial skin, minimize facial wrinkles and improve skin laxity.
The Icon laser distributes microscopic columns of energy that stimulate the production of collagen. Icon (1540) treatments are highly effective on facial wrinkles and skin tightening because of the collagen stimulation. The energy also targets pigment to break up cosmetically undesirable brown spots and pigmentation. Wrinkle depth and severity are minimized and tone and texture improved. Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle. Be sure to schedule a consultation with one of our certified Icon laser nurses.
Icon fractional laser skin resurfacing requires a series of 3-4 treatments scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart. Understand that the benefits of non-ablative fractional erbium laser resurfacing take time as new collagen production does not begin until 6 weeks and goes on for at least 6 months after the last treatment.
The Icon laser has a chilled tip, but there is mild discomfort when the laser is activated. Multiple applications of the laser across the entire skin service are done and in some cases, a second pass is done. Cold packs will be applied immediately after treatment to comfort your skin.
Your face will be pink after your Icon Laser treatment and some patients experience mild to moderate swelling. Ice packs will be applied, and the pink or red color goes away in a few hours or overnight. More aggressive deeper non-ablative Icon Skin Resurfacing treatments can cause pinkness and skin peeling that can last 2 or 3 days. Topical hydrocortisone cream can reduce this reaction to deeper more aggressive treatments.
