What is ICON Laser Skin Revitalization?
ICON is a non-surgical laser treatment that revitalizes the skin and helps reverse the aging process. If you suffer from stretch marks, fine lines & wrinkles, spider veins, rosacea, acne scars, and other signs of aging skin, then you may be the perfect candidate for this aesthetic treatment. In fact, this device is the only FDA-cleared laser system used to treat stretch marks.
With ICON, the clinical team at Bluebird Vision + Wellness can address all of your skin concerns at the same time. Treatments do not require any surgery, and there is little to no downtime involved. You may come in for a quick procedure and return to your regular routine immediately.
How Does ICON Laser Skin Revitalization Work?
ICON laser skin revitalization treats moderate-to-severe acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and other skin conditions with two laser wavelengths. This allows us to target multiple skin concerns during a single treatment session. The MaxG handpiece uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to minimize spider veins, vascular lesions, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and redness. The 1540 fractional laser stimulates collagen and elastin production helping to firm up the skin and smooth out/reduce fine lines, surgical & acne scars, and stretch marks.
The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. At Bluebird Vision + Wellness, we'll customize all of your sessions based on your concerns and your skin care goals.
What Can I Expect During Treatments?
At Bluebird Vision + Wellness, we perform ICON skin revitalization as an in-office procedure. During your initial consultation, we create a custom treatment plan just for you. In the course of the procedure, you may receive treatment with the 1540 fractional laser, IPL, or both. This will depend on the skin concerns you are looking to address. Using the handpieces, we will make a few passes on your skin to induce collagen and elastin production.
After the session is over, you can expect some minor redness or swelling in the treated area. The redness and swelling should fade eventually, and aside from needing to protect yourself from the sun, you can return to your normal activities.
What Should I Expect From the Results?
Although patients usually notice visible improvements after one treatment, a series of 3-6 treatments is typically recommended to achieve optimal results. This is especially true if you are looking to improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin. Five treatments may be needed to treat stretch marks.
Immediately after the procedure, you may notice darkening of the treated skin. This is normal, and the outer layers of your skin will soon exfoliate to reveal younger-looking, smoother skin. As your skin produces new elastin and collagen, you may notice a gradual reduction in fine lines. Over several months, you may notice firmer skin.
