The ICON laser at Juvea Aesthetics uses powerful pulsed laser light technology to treat scar tissue and prompt the body’s natural healing process to form new, healthy tissue. There is minimal pain, no risk of infection and rapid healing with the FDA approved ICON. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be used on most areas of the body to treat a wide range of skin concerns such as:
Perhaps you have had an operation due to an accident, illness or cosmetic surgery and the surgical scars are getting you down. Juvea Aesthetics are pleased to offer surgical scar removal treatment with little down time needed. The ICON laser effectively treats surgical scars, post trauma scars and skin graft scars amongst others through a series of treatments.
It may be that you no longer suffer from acne, but those tell tale pitted scars are still making you feel self-conscious. The powerful ICON fractional laser system is a quick and highly-effective treatment for acne scar removal, suitable for all skin types and with minimal downtime. Fractional laser light breaks down scar tissue and encourages the production of new, healthy tissue for a smoother appearance. Our ICON laser is a great solution for treating a range of scarring- from acne scars to surgical scars.
Some clients say the sensation is similar to that of an elastic band snapping at the skin but the Palomar ICON laser has an advanced cooling feature which can be used during the treatment to maximise the patient’s comfort.
At Juvea we usually recommend at least 4-6 sessions of ICON laser treatments around 6-8 weeks apart for optimum results in reducing scar tissue, for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation this may be less but your aesthetic practitioner will discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
Many people will experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation immediately after the treatment and there may be some minor swelling and redness. This is totally normal and will subside within 24-72 hours. If treating pigmented spots they will become darker and slowly come to the skin’s surface, but after 10-14 days they will shed the damaged cells naturally. Your practitioner will recommend wearing SPF sunscreen following ICON laser treatment.
The ICON uses fractional laser light beams to target scars and heal damaged tissues. The laser energy activates the body’s immune system to generate new skin cells to replace scar tissues- as new tissues develop, surrounding skin is not damaged.
Most laser treatments for scars last no more than thirty minutes to an hour but this will depend on the size of the area being treated. Your practitioner may recommend a series of progressive treatments for your best results.
The ICON laser can dramatically improve the skin’s texture and tone, and any blemishes with minimal downtime required. It’s suitable for most skin types and you can treat multiple skin complaints in one treatment. It can also reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles and different types of scarring. The ICON works by using laser energy to create affected areas deep into the skin’s dermis layer which then triggers the body’s healing process and regenerate new, more youthful-looking skin.
