How It Works

Skin Resurfacing Before & After

Laser Energy Microbeams

For this treatment we use a non-ablative 1540 fractional laser to achieve excellent skin resurfacing results.  Laser energy microbeams create tiny areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis to encourage the body’s natural healing process. Your body then creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, smoother, younger-looking skin.

FAQs

Is it safe?


The Cynosure ICON is FDA approved to be safe and effective. We use a melanin reading device called the Skintel to make sure we are operating within safe parameters for every skin type. All of our treatments are physician supervised and every safety measure is put in place to make sure our patients are in good hands.




Do I have the right skin type?


Skin resurfacing can be done on all skin types, including very light and very dark skin.




What does Skin Resurfacing treat?


It is a flexible treatment for numerous conditions including reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing scarring from surgery or acne, stretch mark reduction, or correcting hyperpigmentation.




How does it work on Stretch marks?


Stretch marks are a common problem for many men and women. When areas of skin stretch considerably over a short period of time, such as during pregnancy or extreme weight loss, noticeable lines appear on the skin surface.

Using the ICON system, the appearance of stretch marks can be improved.

This treatment targets stretch marks’ discolouration and stimulates the production of new collagen to improve smoothness.

Typically, patients require between three and five treatments to restore skin smoothness and consistency. The procedure is relatively quick – and there is little to no downtime.




How long is each treatment?


Session times vary depending on the area being treated. You can decide whether to treat multiple skin complaints at once, or over successive treatments.




What should I expect post treatment?


Some redness and puffiness is expected post treatment but resolves quickly in as little as 3 days. Depending on what we are treating, results and recovery expectations vary. We provide all of our patients with post care instructions and they are readily available here on our website. To read more about post procedure expectations feel free to take a look.




Is there any downtime?


This treatment method boasts recovery times of as little as four days, without the side effects associated with invasive surgery.




How many treatments will I need?


Depending on the issue we are treating, 1-6 treatments may be needed.




How much does it cost?


Treatment price depends on the area of the body and how many treatments you require to reach your desired results. Prices start around $315.
