What is laser skin resurfacing?
At Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa, Dr. Tumbaga uses the Icon laser system to treat skin imperfections. Laser skin resurfacing improves flaws in your skin safely and quickly without surgery.
Icon lasers work by delivering microbeams deep into the tissue below your skin in the problem area. This process triggers your body’s natural healing process, which generates new, healthy skin cells. Laser skin resurfacing helps your body replace damaged tissue with fresh, younger-looking skin.
What can Icon laser skin resurfacing treat?
Icon laser treatments work on most skin types and may improve the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Age spots
Dr. Tumbaga can use various Icon laser attachments to achieve your desired appearance. The handpieces she may treat you with include:
- MaxG for clearing pigmented lesions and veins
- MaxR for reducing unwanted hair
- MaxYs for treating your chest, arms, and hands
- 1540 for reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks
What should I expect from a laser skin resurfacing treatment?
Icon laser skin resurfacing is a fast and painless procedure. The length of time required depends on the treatment area, but Dr. Tumbaga typically spends less than an hour on resurfacing treatments.
Even though you may see improvements after the first treatment, it’s common to get several sessions of laser skin resurfacing to achieve optimal results.
Laser skin resurfacing requires minimal downtime. You should be able to resume your daily routine the same day as your treatment. Side effects are minor and should disappear within a couple of days, but you may experience:
- Minor swelling
