Laser scar reduction with the revolutionary Icon laser system allows you to restore your firmer, youthful, more even-textured skin. Treatments work by gliding a medical-grade fractional laser device over your desired area. The Icon laser delivers gentle waves of heat that break down scar tissue while triggering new skin cell and tissue production.
Over the following weeks, older, damaged tissues start to get replaced by healthier, firmer tissue, including new collagen. Your scars become visibly less noticeable as your skin tightens and smooths out. Not only is laser scar reduction with Icon ideal for acne scars, but you can also request treatments for unsightly injury or surgical scars.
You should start noticing a reduction in your treated scars within a couple of weeks of your first Icon session. Initially, you could experience some slight redness or swelling, but it subsides within two to three days. For optimal results and a dramatic reduction in scar reduction, it’s usually best to have several Icon laser treatments.
Your Icon laser scar reduction treatment plan at Renew Laser Aesthetics is entirely tailored to you and your specific concerns. Although you should start noticing smoother skin and a visible improvement within a couple of weeks, you could need between three to seven treatments, each spaced at least a month apart. With each day that passes following every Icon session you have, your scars continue disappearing and smoothing out.
It’s common to feel some warmth or tingling during your Icon laser scar reduction treatment, but you shouldn’t be in pain. Some men and women report that treatment in sensitive areas, such as on your jawline, can cause some slight discomfort, although most patients generally tolerate it well.
Your dedicated practitioner at Renew Laser Aesthetics may suggest applying a topical numbing cream or ice pack to ensure your scar reduction visit is as comfortable as possible.
