Whether you’re hoping for less obvious lines and wrinkles or help with scarring, age spots, Rosacea, unwanted hair, or other skin issues, the ICON™ laser system offers a solution. At Chesapeake Weight Loss & Aesthetics in Chesapeake, Virginia, Rachel Chastanet, MD, and her team are proud to offer this innovative technology to men and women hoping to achieve noticeable skin improvements. The process begins with a personalized consultation, which you can schedule online or over the phone.
The ICON laser system is a versatile laser platform developed by Cynosure®, a leader in the medical aesthetics industry. ICON can address numerous skin conditions at once, making these treatments a great way to get the most out of your hard-earned money.
The technology that backs the ICON system delivers fractional laser light, an approach that directs light to the deeper layers of your skin where it can work to create real and lasting results. These high precision microbeams create thousands of vertical channels into your skin, triggering your natural healing response.
Unlike other lasers, the ICON system is a good option for people of all skin tones. That means even those who’ve been previously told they are not good candidates for laser therapy can achieve the impressive results offered by the ICON system.
Perhaps the most well-known use of the ICON laser platform is laser skin resurfacing. This process stimulates your body to create new collagen and elastin, smoothing and tightening your skin.
Additional areas of concern the ICON laser can address include:
If you have multiple skin conditions, ICON laser treatments are a great way to get the results you desire in a cost effective manner.
All this talk of heat and healing might leave the impression that ICON laser treatments are something to dread. In reality, ICON treatments are very well tolerated.
The ICON platform uses a patented cooling system to keep the surface of your skin at a comfortable temperature during sessions. Topical numbing cream can further reduce sensations in the treatment area.
ICON laser treatments require just a few days of recovery time. During the first 24 hours, you might experience some swelling and sensitivity. Over-the-counter pain medications can manage discomfort.
You may notice some skin darkening and flake in the days after your treatment, both of which will clear up quickly. Be sure to wear a high-quality sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage as the healing process moves forward.
