ICON™ Stretch Mark Removal
There are many treatments on the aesthetic market that promise to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the skin surface, but the ICON™ laser is designed to target this skin imperfection from the inside out for real, long-lasting results. This safe and effective treatment is fast, easy, and virtually pain-free and has a high rate of patient satisfaction.
How Does it Work?
Using fractionated laser technology, the ICON™ breaks down stretch marks below the skin surface and improves by tone and texture by creating microscopic punctures. This benefits the skin in two major ways:
- Skin Healing: The treatment process promotes the skin’s natural healing response, and the healthy skin left intact in the treatment area aids in the process to create visible results in a shorter amount of time.
- Collagen Production: The gentle heat from the laser also stimulates the production of fresh, new collagen the fills in the microchannels and creates tighter, smoother skin over time.
What Results Can I Expect?
After stretch mark removal treatments with the ICON™ laser, patients can expect to see a visible reduction in the appearance of stretch marks and smoother skin in the treatment area. While treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s schedule, goals, and needs, it is often recommended to have at least three to five sessions in order to get full results. Depending on your skin condition, more sessions may be recommended for your treatment package.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Slight reddening and swelling of the skin may develop on treated areas, which is a normal indication that the skin healing process has begun. This is mild and should fade within the first one or two days. As there is only mild discomfort associated with this treatment, there is no downtime or recovery involved and patients can typically resume normal activities right afterward.
