Scars

Minimize appearance of scars in a few sessions without surgery and downtime.

Surgical scar removal requires incisions but Laser Scar Removal uses multiple microbeam laser light to break down scar tissue, creating new, healthy tissue production. The Icon™ system’s advanced technology caters to all skin types in a way that is fast yet safe.

Over the first 6 weeks after your session, you will start to see an improved appearance of your skin’s tone and texture. The scars will start becoming even in colour and texture, blending naturally into the skin surrounding the scar.

How Does it Work?

Fractional laser technology sends specialized pulses of energy into your skin, targeting unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without harming the skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin, the body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the treatment area. You will see improvement in the colour and smoothness of your skin in the weeks following your treatment.

 

This treatment process is created to treat surgical and acne scars on any area of the body, including the face. Most skin types are safe to receive the treatment. There are a range of deciding factors that will determine if you are a good candidate and will be assessed during your consultation.

What to Expect?

Sessions typically take less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

 

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. Follow-up treatment sessions will be booked 3-6 weeks apart.

 

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.

 

You can look forward to the improved tone and texture of your skin in the first 6 weeks of treatment.

Downtime and Discomfort?

Typically patients feel mild discomfort during the treatment, but talk to your provider 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 intense treatment is performed you may need a few days to heal.
