Skin imperfections are one of the most common conditions that contribute to low self-esteem. Even patients who have good skin quality are often concerned about maintaining their skin health and inhibiting the development of signs of aging. As your skin is the first thing someone notices about you, why not have glowing and youthful skin? The Cynosure Icon laser system offers treatments for a wide variety of skin concerns including: fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, age spots, vascular lesions, scars, stretch marks, and even unwanted hair.
Three For Me
Three For Me is a comprehensive option that targets unwanted wrinkles, sun damage, and facial veins all in one laser treatment. This 45-minute, non-invasive procedure gives you glowing skin with minimal downtime. This treatment is preformed in two stages. The first pass treats discoloration, such as brown spots, age spots, and freckles. It also targets blood vessels and facial veins and can treat rosacea through the use of intense pulsed light (IPL). The second pass renews the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in the improvement of fine line, wrinkles and scars. It is suggested that you undergo three treatments spaced one month apart to achieve the best results. With this treatment, you will begin to notice results right away, and these improvements will increase over the course of six months.
Freckles, age spots, moles, and vascular lesions on the face, chest, arms, and hands are all signs of aging and years of exposure to the sun. Photorejuvenation uses intense pulsed light to refresh the skin. IPL delivers light energy to the skin, treating age spots and sun damage. This energy is selectively absorbed into the skin by the unwanted pigment and then cleared away by the body. IPL is effective on a variety of skin types, but we recommend discussing it with Dr. Mabourakh’s Registered Nurses to see if you are a candidate. Depending on the size of the treatment area, IPL can be performed in just minutes. Temporary darkening of the treated pigment should be expected, but soon it will slough away, revealing a clearer, more uniform look.
Treating texture irregularities such as fine lines and wrinkles and improving the overall health of the skin is now easier that ever with the Icon 1540 laser. This laser uses a technology known as fractional resurfacing to deeply penetrate the top layer of skin without damaging it. With this treatment and array of high-precison microbeams are delivered to the skin, creating deep, narrow columns of skin coagulations surrounded by health, untreated skin. As time passes, the skin will actually begin to repair itself, and younger, healthier skin will replace the damaged skin.
In addition the Icon 1540 laser can also treat the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone and texture
Depending on the condition treated, you may experience swelling and redness for a few days following the treatment, but treatments are gentle and don’t require a lot of downtime.
Laser Hair Removal
Make shaving a waxing a thing of the past. The Icon laser offers long-lasting hair removal for the face, underarms, legs, back, bikini area and chest in as little as five to seven sessions. This treatment targets and destroys hair cells without damaging the surrounding skin. Any additional growth will come in finer, lighter, and far less noticeable. It is available for a variety of skin types and can be tailored to fit your needs.
