HOW DO LASER SCAR REDUCTION TREATMENTS WORK?
The Icon™ Aesthetic System uses pulses of laser light which is delivered into the dermis to treat acne and surgical scars. This aids in breaking down and softening scar tissue to help generate new collagen and healthier skin. The healthy tissue that is generated during laser scar treatment should help the scar fade, leaving clearer, revealing smoother skin.* This is a non-invasive treatment and works on most skin types.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING LASER SCAR REMOVAL
Each acne and surgical scar reduction treatment with the Icon takes less than 30 minutes. Each patient’s skin and scar condition is different, although 3-5 sessions are typically needed to provide optimal results. Depending on the severity of the scar, more sessions may be needed for complete scar removal. This treatment is considered to be of mild discomfort, although Contact Cooling™ technology is provided to help keep the patient more comfortable. For larger areas of scarring, topical anesthetic is available.
