Frequently Asked Questions

  • + What if I need to have another C-Section operation?

    The ICON laser works by encouraging the body’s own immune response which means your skin will heal the scarred tissue in its own way - working gently to rejuvenate the area. The skin won’t be weakened and the laser treatment does not affect the muscle tissue beneath the deeper skin layers. If you have to be operated on that area again the surgeon will be able to cut on or near the site of the original scar.

  • + Will it take many months to complete?

    No, most people get the results they are expecting within a few months. It will depend upon the amount of sessions required to reach that level of success you were looking for but you will have a better idea when you meet with your consultant and have a full assessment of your scarring condition.

  • + I am worried about the cost but I also want the best results.

    If you have seen cheaper prices, be warned. The technician might not be as qualified as they should be or they might be using substandard devices. You may save a few pounds, but the risks range from burning (causing further scarring) to results that show no improvement at all. A false economy and - even worse - medical treatment might be needed.

  • + My scar is not that old – does it have to be “mature” to be treated?

    No, it might not have completely finished its healing process, but it should be possible to start treatment. It is sensible to check with our consultant over the phone in the first instance.

  • + Will I have to wear special clothing after treatment?

    No, but it is advisable to avoid underwear or tight clothing that finish at the point of the C-Section scar. It will be sensitive for a few days and you don’t want to cause irritation and inhibit the natural recovery process.

  • + How painful is it?

    It is not really painful as such. You can be assured of this because no general or local anaesthetic is required. This is one of the best things about the procedure – the lack of anaesthetic means no drowsy after-effects. Some liken the sensation to an elastic band snapping on the skin at the time of laser activation. For a few days afterwards you may experience some slight redness like mild sunburn which will fade between 24-72 hours. The only recovery needed is to be careful of the affected area over the next few days. And take the aftercare advice from your technician.

  • + I have a lot of moles – will they be affected by the treatment?

    The beauty of the ICON laser is its accuracy at targeting just the scar tissue. By having a Juvea technician administer the laser treatment you can be assured that moles in the local area will not be touched by the laser beams. Your technician will examine your surrounding skin as well as the scar itself at the time of your first consultation.

  • + How soon can I sit in the sun after treatment?

    A 8 It is very important to stay out of the sun immediately after sessions and ideally throughout the course of treatment. Your consultant will advise you to wear a high sun protection factor product for when it is considered safe to expose the area to the sunlight. Loose cotton clothing is the best solution until a period of time after your last laser session.

  • + Can I have the treatment in conjunction with other laser treatment?

    This really depends upon the treatment. Sometimes they are compatible especially if in totally different areas of the body. Talk to your consultant about this.
