You know, aging is enough to get even the sweetest of us bowed up! Over time, our skin’s outer layers start to show wear and tear from aging, injury, and environmental factors in the form of wrinkles, scars, age spots, and discoloration. You might have thought you were stuck with the look of aging on your face, but you’re not! Skin resurfacing treatments help to reverse these signs of aging and stress, helping you look younger, and even healthier, in the process.
What Is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing treatments help to restore a more youthful, beautiful complexion by removing the most damaged outer layers of skin to reveal the healthier-looking skin beneath and encouraging new, healthy skin cell growth. Patients love skin resurfacing, as it gives them a “new lease on life,” restoring the youthful look they thought was forever lost.
We have two treatments for skin resurfacing: The ICON 1540 and Potenza, which are non-ablative and ablative lasers, respectively. Non-ablative lasers work by heating up the underlying skin tissue without harming the surface, while ablative lasers remove the top layer of skin. Both of these treatments rebuild tissue by mass producing collagen and elastin. They treat sagging, dull skin, deep wrinkles and fine lines, and resurface the skin. They can also treat stretch marks, surgical scars and acne scars.
What Is the ICON 1540 Laser?
The ICON is a fractional erbium laser that delivers energy to the skin through high precision microbeams. The light penetrates the skin’s deepest layers, causing the skin to repair itself by producing more collagen and elastin, which are compounds that give skin its strong, tight, and smooth appearance. Our ICON 1540 works on all skin types and colors. Most sessions last an hour or less and require minimal downtime.
How Does the ICON Laser Make You More Gorgeous?
In just one treatment, the ICON laser reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.* It stimulates the regeneration of new skin, so you look like you, only younger.* There’s no surgery or injections, so you recover in as little as four days.
What Is the Potenza Laser?
Potenza is lauded as the first and only FDA-cleared four-mode RF microneedling device, which enables clinicians to offer personalized treatments for patients. Potenza’s four modes, including monopolar and bipolar, allow it to provide customized microneedling treatments for patients. Microneedling provokes the release of collagen and elastin by stimulating healing from small injury caused.
How Does Potenza Make You More Gorgeous?
Potenza has Tiger Tip™ technology consisting of semi-insulated needles which allow us to expand the treatment zone and address more tissue per treatment, which translates to quick, efficient sessions, without sacrificing the epidermis. The device also features a single-needle handpiece to target and improve blemishes.
How Do You Prepare for Laser Skin Treatment?
During your complimentary consultation, we will assess the atrophy in your skin, the time frame desired to reach your goal and how much downtime you can allow for to determine which laser is best for you.
