Skin Care Q & A
I’m worried about getting burned after a laser treatment. Is the Icon Aesthetic System safe?
Yes. The system’s revolutionary melanin reader understands how to react to your specific skin tone. It can pick up dark or light pigments and automatically adjust your treatment to your exact skin type. The Icon Aesthetic System even has patented Advanced Contact Cooling™, meaning the system runs at a cooler rate than other lasers, minimizing your risk of burns.
How soon will I see results after treatment?
Using the Icon Aesthetic System, our certified laser technicians can help you with numerous skin imperfections and blemishes, including:
- Stretch marks
- Unsightly veins
- Unwanted hair growth
- Surgical scars
- Acne scars
What can I expect after having veins or wrinkles treated?
Shortly after your laser procedure, you might have some redness and swelling. For vein treatments, you could also experience some bruising. These side effects are normal as your skin is healing. You should start noticing unsightly veins and wrinkles fading within a few weeks of having your laser treatment procedure.
How many treatments will I need at each visit?
Yes. Laser hair removal works by forcing a beam of highly concentrated light into each hair follicle in the area you have treated. Pigments in the hair absorb the light, which ultimately destroys the hair. Depending on the color of your skin and the color and coarseness of your hair, you might have to have several treatments to have permanent results. While you should have have noticeably reduced hair in just one visit, it could take up to 7 treatments or more to achieve your desired results.
