Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

How does the Icon laser rejuvenate skin?

The Icon laser combines a fractional laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to revolutionize your complexion. The energy stimulates your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which are strengthening compounds that improve your skin’s tautness and smoothness, as well as restoring a youthful glow.

What skin concerns can be treated with the Icon laser?

The Icon laser addresses a variety of common skin complaints. The gentle laser technology sweeps and restores the superficial layers of your skin, resulting in more even pigmentation and texture.  

Issues that improve with skin rejuvenation include:

  • Acne and other scars
  • Deep wrinkles and facial lines
  • General effects of aging
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage

Icon laser treatments rejuvenate your complexion, reducing the appearance of sunspots, age spots, broken blood vessels, and rosacea.

Does skin rejuvenation with the Icon laser hurt?

Most people find the treatments with Icon laser quite tolerable. You may feel some heat and tingling, but Icon has a built-in cooling mechanism to ease any discomfort. You also receive a topical numbing cream prior to treatment if desired.

Downtime is minimal, especially compared to invasive surgery or ablative laser treatments. Most people have all the side effects of Icon treatments resolve within two to three days. You experience some redness and mild swelling, as if you’ve had a sunburn, following treatment.

How many skin rejuvenation treatment sessions do I need?

Dr. Vudarla creates a customized plan for you as the exact number of treatments you need depends on your skin complaints and aesthetic goals. Most people see results after three to five sessions, which are scheduled two to six weeks apart. Sessions last about 30 minutes.

You should notice an immediate afterglow following Icon treatments, but you’ll see greater effects as your skin produces more collagen and elastin over the course of the following two to three months. Dr. Vudarla discusses what to expect and when so you’re fully informed about the skin rejuvenation process.
