General Questions

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation refers to various therapies that make your skin look better and improve its function.

Central to skin rejuvenation is laser resurfacing, which improves the texture and tone of your skin while training it to produce new, rejuvenating collagen and elastin. The aesthetic professionals at Health and Beauty Associates use the Icon laser to do this.

The Icon laser can improve:

  • Skin texture
  • Skin tone
  • Evenness
  • Sun spots and freckles
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Melasma

You can also use Xeomin and dermal fillers to further smooth wrinkles. Your aesthetic professional helps you decide which treatments you need to get your desired results.

How does the Icon laser stimulate skin rejuvenation?

The Icon laser sends pulses of intense laser energy deep into your skin. Depending on your needs, the aesthetic professionals at Health and Beauty Associates change the settings to resolve specific problems, such as fine lines or hyperpigmentation.

The heat from the laser shatters unsightly lesions, such as sun spots and melasma. The Icon’s energy also stimulates a process called collagen remodeling.

Why is collagen important for skin rejuvenation?

Collagen is one of the central components of your skin. Collagen makes your skin strong, thick, and youthful. As you age, your stores of collagen begin to deplete, which is why your skin starts to thin and sag.

The Icon laser triggers new collagen production so your skin firms up and looks more youthful. The laser’s heat also triggers your body to create more elastin, which makes your skin more resilient.

When new collagen and elastin rejuvenate your skin, it looks and acts like younger skin. Regular laser treatments with the Icon laser allow you to stay refreshed and lifted without any surgery.

What is an Icon treatment like?

Skin rejuvenation with the Icon laser only takes about 30 minutes. The Icon laser features an Advanced Contact Cooling™ system, so your skin stays safe and cool during the procedure.

Your aesthetic professional may also numb your skin before treatment.

How many Icon laser treatments do I need for skin rejuvenation?

Depending on your needs, you may only need one treatment with the Icon laser, or several. After you’ve achieved your desired results, you should return for touch-ups every year or two to maintain those results.
