Photofacial

Correct your Skin Tone and Reduce Surface Imperfections

Skin blemishes can be minimized fast and easily with the use of the Icon™ Laser Photofacial. You will see considerable improvement in the tone and texture of your skin in just a few sessions – showing your beautiful skin!

Microscopic beams of laser light break down any old and damaged skin tissue which allows your body to create new tissue in the targeted area. The new tissue provides you with new, healthier skin that is even in texture and colour.

How Does it Work?

Microscopic beams of laser light break down the old and damaged tissue allowing your body to create new tissue in the targeted area. The new tissue provides you with skin that is even in colour and texture. Typically 2 to 4 sessions are recommended 3 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the condition of your skin.

 

Most skin types are able to safely take advantage of Icon™ treatment. To determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure, we will assess a variety of factors during a consultation.

What to Expect?

At the beginning of your procedure you will be given special glasses which will shield your eyes from any hazardous reflected laser light. To start the treatment, a handpiece will be maneuvered over the treatment area sending energy into your skin. You may feel mild discomfort to no discomfort during the treatment depending on the care option we select.

 

If needed we will provide you with post-treatment guidelines to manage pain. Redness and/or swelling may occur at the treatment site but it typically goes away by the third day.

 

If necessary, follow-up treatment sessions will be booked 3-6 weeks apart. You can look forward to the improved tone and texture of your skin in the first 6 weeks of treatment.

 

If you are a laser skin revitalization patient, please be aware of the following:
Ensure all makeup and lotions are removed before your session.


Stop unprotected sun exposure, use of tanning beds and tanning creams on the treatment area at least 4 weeks before your appointment.

Downtime and Discomfort?

Typically patients feel mild discomfort during the treatment but talk to us about pain management options.

Directly following your session, redness, swelling and/or brown debris on the skin’s surface is common in the 2-24 hour period. This could last up to 3-5 days.

You can continue your regular daily activities on the day of your treatment. If a more intrusive treatment is performed you may need a few days to heal.
