ICON at The Saltz: Laser Skin Resurfacing

About Laser Skin Resurfacing

After the age of 20, your skin produces 1% less collagen each year. When combined
with the cumulative effects of sun exposure, unwelcome lines and brown spots are
inevitable. There’s now an effective solution to remove the signs of aging from your
face, chest and hands!

Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for the improvement in the appearance of pore size, skin
tone and wrinkles, giving you the youthful looking appearance you’ve always wanted.
With Cynosure’s® Icon™ Laser, dramatic results are possible without the lengthy
downtime associated with an invasive face-lift or other, fully-ablative laser treatments.
This in-office treatment takes less than 30 minutes and provides remarkable results you
will be happy to show off.

 

  • FAQ's
    • How does it work?

      This fractional technology uses micro beams or columns of energy to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the skin’s epidermis into the dermis while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed resulting in faster healing. This triggers the body’s natural healing process to clear away old, damaged skin cells and create new, healthy cells to take the place of the cells that have been cleared away. The laser also stimulates the production of new collagen & elastin deep within your skin. Over time, this will build up the supportstructure under your skin resulting in a younger and smoother looking appearance.

    • What To Expect On The Day Of Treatment?

      Before your Icon™ skin resurfacing treatment, your doctor will typically apply a topical anesthetic over the area being treated. Once you are ready for the treatment, the topical anesthetic will be removed and the skin will be washed. You will be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the light during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the Icon™ handpiece over the treatment area. You may feel a heat or a tingling sensation during the treatment. Depending on the size of the area, treatments take about 30 minutes.

      Immediately after the treatment, the area will be cooled and we will apply an occlusive ointment which should be used over the next few days to decrease healing time. If you are a laser skin resurfacing patient please contact the office to review the pre-treatment care instructions prior to the day of your treatment.

    • How many treatments are needed?

      Typically, only a few treatments are needed however depending on the condition, several treatments maybe required to achieve desired results.

    • What can I expect following the treatment?

      Most people experience a mild, sun-burn like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts 2 to 24 hours. Speak with your provider to discuss other possible side-effects and the necessary post-treatment care.

  • FAQ's
    • How does PicoSure laser tattoo removal work?

      Laser energy is delivered to the tattoo, targeting the ink and breaking it down into smaller particles. The particles are eliminated through the body’s natural processes resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.

    • What does laser tattoo removal feel like?

      For many patients, the feeling of laser tattoo removal has been compared to what it feels like when getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Your practitioner will work with you on the best comfort option based on your individual situation.

    • How many treatments will tattoo removal require?

      The number of laser treatments needed for tattoo removal is dependent on a number of variables such as ink type, size of the tattoo, location on the body, type of laser used, lifestyle habits, etc. During your consultation, a practitioner will evaluate your tattoo and recommend a realistic treatment regime to help you achieve the best results.

    • How often will I need treatments?

      While it typically takes 4-8 weeks for the body to absorb the ink particles, every patient and tattoo responds differently. Following the recommended post treatment protocol will likely improve the results and reduce the chance of small adverse events.

    • How will my skin look after the laser treatment?

      The ideal clinical endpoint for the tattoo treatment is an immediate slight whitening or “frosting” of the skin, however that will subside immediately after the treatment is complete. Other observable effects include mild swelling and redness. Your practitioner will direct you on how best to keep the area moist.

    • My tattoo was treated with a laser in the past and didn’t clear, why would I try again now?

      Until the launch of PicoSure, Q-Switched lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Q-Switched laser treatments use thermal energy to heat up and break apart the ink particles. Now with PicoSure, ultra-short pulses hit the ink particle with a pressure so great, the ink shatters into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body. PicoSure has been proven success in treating even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, stubborn tattoos that were not successfully cleared in the past.

    • Can I lighten the tattoo to have another one put on top?

      Tattoos can be lightened in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. Your practitioner may have you wait six weeks between your last treatment and when you have the new tattoo completed.

    • How much does tattoo removal cost?

      The cost of laser tattoo removal depends on several factors, including the size of tattoo and the number of treatments it will require. Most insurance companies will not cover laser tattoo removal since it is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. After your consultation, your practitioner will provide you a price estimate for the treatment series.
