What to expect with ICON™ Fractional 1540 Laser
After cleansing your skin, we will apply a topical numbing cream to cool the skin and minimize discomfort during treatment. If you have had a previous consultation or treatment the topical numbing ointment will be send home with you to apply before you arrive for your treatment.
You can expect some minor redness or swelling immediately following treatment, but you may return to normal activity if you keep the area protected from the sun.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Patients usually notice visible improvements after their first treatment, though a series of three to four treatments is typical to achieve optimal improvement in skin tone, texture and appearance. Five treatments are typically recommended to treat stretch marks.
Immediately after treatment, you may notice darkening of the treated skin; this is normal, and the outer layers will soon exfoliate to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. As your skin produces new collagen and elastin, you will notice a gradual reduction in fine lines as well as a firmer skin appearance over several months following treatment.
Is the ICON™ Fractional 1540 Laser right for me?
Because we can utilize different wavelengths with the ICON to customize treatment, we can safely treat most skin types to help clear the skin of unwanted hair, freckles, sun-damage, broken capillaries and more.
The best way to find out if ICON laser resurfacing or another treatment option will best match your needs is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced Licensed Laser Specialists. Please call or contact us online to schedule your appointment or consultation.
What is the cost?
The cost is based on the size of the area to be treated, the severity of the issue of concern and the number of treatments needed to address your specific issue. Most people need a series of at least 3 treatments to obtain optimal results. Treatments are done every 4 weeks. An exact quote of cost and number of treatments needed to treat your specific issue will be provided at your free consultation, after we have had an opportunity to do a complete assessment of your skin.
