Are you tired of blotchy, hyperpigmented or red skin? Correct your skin tone and reduce surface imperfections with the use of the Icon™ Laser Photofacial; leaving you with even, bright and radiant skin.
How to prepare for my first session?
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.
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.
How soon will I see results?
Results are seen within 2-4 weeks on average.
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.
How many sessions are recommended?
Typically 3 to 6 sessions are recommended 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the condition of your skin.
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.
We further recommend that you stop unprotected sun exposure, use of tanning beds and tanning creams on the treatment area at least 4 weeks after your appointment.
