Icon™ Aesthetic System FDA-Approved Acne and Surgical Scar Removal
After you have healed from surgery, red and jagged scars can continue to make you feel poorly about your appearance. Now, you can get back your self-confidence and repair surgical and acne scar damage using the noninvasive laser technology of the Icon Aesthetic System. Laser scar removal treatments can significantly fade the appearance of even the worst acne and surgical scars and restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
The Icon uses fractional laser light microbeams to reach deep below the surface of the skin and create areas of affected tissue. Then, the laser energy activates the body’s own collagen and elastin production mechanisms to generate new, healthy skin cells to replace the areas of laser-damaged and scar tissues. The Icon is fantastic because as new tissues naturally develop, your skin is not permanently damaged. Laser scar removal treatments are suitable for all areas of the body, including the face. The Icon is FDA-approved and can treat all skin types.
What to Expect During Laser Scar Removal
Reducing the appearance of acne and surgical scars is fast, with treatment sessions lasting about 30 minutes. Most scars will require three to five sessions to be completely healed. Laser scar removal has few side effects including temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site. Patients are typically able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
