No. 2: Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks
Another important way to use Icon laser is to help with reducing skin that’s been pulled out of shape. With wrinkles, including deep lines around your mouth or lines at your forehead, this treatment works to stimulate healthy cell production in that area. By stimulating the regeneration of new skin, it is possible to see improvement in those fine lines.
With stretch marks, the same type of process works. The skin here is stretched significantly for a period of time and then begins to shrink. This happens, for example, during pregnancy. Icon laser can help by stimulating the skin’s ability to heal itself. By encouraging new skin to form, it can help to fill in those lines to create natural, healthy-looking skin.
No. 3: Improves skin tone and texture
Icon works as a type of skin resurfacing solution for a variety of problems, including the tone and pigment of your skin. If you have areas where the texture does not feel the same, it can help there, too. For example, you may have an area that seems rough. Another area may seem pitted due to scarring. Acne can create changes in texture as well. Sun damage is another common problem.
Icon works to address these issues. The laser stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal. As it does, new skin cells form, covering and improving the existing skin damage. Within a short time, you can begin to see new, healthy skin replacing these areas. Most often, it is smooth and comfortable, and can even help to make your skin look youthful again.
