Icon™ Laser Acne and Surgical Scar Treatments

Scars can be difficult to prevent, but now you can erase them with Icon laser treatments. The advanced laser technology of the Icon Aesthetic System is able to revitalize your skin and reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars without causing painful side effects.

 

How Do Laser Scar Treatments Work?

The Icon uses fractional laser light beams to revitalize scar tissues by encouraging skin cell turnover. As new tissues develop, they will lessen the appearance of acne and surgical scars while improving the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. Icon laser scar treatments are revolutionary because they use the body’s own healing processes to safely deliver results. Laser scar removal is suitable for most skin types and areas, including the face.

What to Expect During Icon Laser Scar Reduction

Laser scar treatments last about 30 minutes. Most patients will need three to five appointments to successfully reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars. Icon laser treatments are not painful, but a cooling anesthetic can be applied to reduce patient discomfort. The most common side effects usually include some temporary redness and swelling. Many patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure without experiencing any downtime.
