Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What types of skin problems can laser skin resurfacing help solve?

Icon non-ablative fractional laser systems can address a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Redness
  • Fine lines
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Poor skin tone
  • Uneven texture
  • Sun damage

Many patients who opt for laser skin resurfacing using the Icon system have several different skin complaints. For pigmentation issues, the filtered light system of Icon resolves unwanted pigmented lesions, with improvement after just one session. So whether you have one concern, or many, non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing can help you get smoother, more attractive-looking skin.

What skin types can laser skin resurfacing treat?

One of the best things about the Icon laser is that it's appropriate for use on virtually any skin tone — even tanned skin. Other laser resurfacing treatments in the past, including CO2 systems, weren't effective for use on all types of skin. The Icon laser uses highly advanced technology allowing for safe, customized treatments based on individual skin types and problems.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser skin resurfacing with Icon can greatly improve the feel and appearance of your skin after just one treatment and requires no:

  • Incisions
  • Surgery
  • Major preparation

Dr. Heidari performs all Icon laser skin resurfacing treatments in her office suite. As you relax, the non-ablative fractional laser of Icon gently delivers microbeams of concentrated energy all the way through your skin and into the dermis. This prompts your body to make fresh, healthy tissue and collagen to refresh your skin’s appearance.

How many laser skin resurfacing treatments will I need?

Many men and women get the results they want after just one treatment, especially if they have only one concern, such as wrinkles or sun damage. If you have multiple skin concerns — for example, both acne scars and fine lines — you may need three or more laser skin resurfacing treatment sessions.

Each session lasts from 30-60 minutes, so you can be in and out on your lunch break. Plus, patients experience less discomfort and downtime with Icon’s fractional ablative skin resurfacing, as compared to traditional CO2 lasers. Dr. Heidari assesses your skin conditions and tells you how many treatments are needed for you to achieve your desired results.
