Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing: Palomar Icon™ Aesthetic System | Cynosure Smartskin+™
Also known as skin resurfacing and fractional resurfacing
There are many common aesthetic concerns that bother us with age. Some of these include sun-damage and fine lines. These bothersome aesthetic conditions can be difficult to improve with other solutions but, with our Icon™ and Smartskin+™ laser technologies, we can improve your skin quickly and easily. In just a few short treatments, or even one treatment session you will see results in both the tone and texture of your skin, leaving you with the skin you’ve been wanting.
Resurfacing lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. The Smartskin+™ ablative laser delivers a series of fractional laser energy beams into the skin. These energy beams penetrate the skin and remove old and damaged skin cells. This laser allows us to completely tailor the treatment to your needs with one or multiple treatments and more or less downtime. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your expectations.
The Icon™ non-ablative laser also uses fractional microbeams to emit columns of laser energy into the skin but is non-wounding and less invasive. The body’s natural healing process then creates new, healthy tissue and increases collagen production resulting in younger-looking skin. These treatments will be slightly less dramatic than the Smartskin+™ treatments and will require several sessions.
When to consider Laser Skin Resurfacing:
If your skin is sun-damaged with wrinkling around your eyes and mouth as well as skin laxity in your lower eyelid area If you have experienced irregular changes in your skin color, such as blotchiness or brown spots If you have scars that have made the surface of your skin uneven If you have certain precancerous skin growths
Many people who consider laser skin resurfacing also consider chemical peels, microdermabrasion and facelift.
