Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is skin rejuvenation?

The Icon offers fractional laser technology and intense pulsed light treatments that enhance the appearance of your skin for the long term. You experience improvements in the appearance of scarring, hyperpigmentation, texture issues, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks.

The light energy promotes the growth of healthy tissue by boosting your natural production of collagen, a protein that strengthens skin structure. Because Icon has numerous handpieces and several energy systems, the system is ideal for a variety of aesthetic treatments.

What skin concerns can skin rejuvenation address?

Skin rejuvenation corrects imperfections created by sun exposure, aging, skin disorders, and aging. Seek the light-energy sessions to address concerns such as:

  • Visible blood vessels
  • Acne or other scars
  • Pigmentation changes such as freckles or sunspots
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

Icon treatments break up pigmentation so your body can then dispose of the unwanted pigments. Laser skin rejuvenation involves no injections, incisions, or blood loss – it’s completely noninvasive.

How many treatments will I need?

Most men and women require a series of treatments and multiple light applications to achieve the best results. At Ferguson Family Practice, you receive an individualized plan to address your concerns and goals.

Each treatment with the Icon laser lasts 20-60 minutes, depending on the procedure you’re having done. Most people benefit from 4-6 sessions in total.

What should I expect during skin rejuvenation sessions?

You may experience minor discomfort during a session, but most people tolerate the treatments quite well. If you’re concerned about any discomfort, talk to the staff about the application of a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. The system is safe for all skin types.

What downtime should I schedule following skin rejuvenation?

The team at Ferguson Family Practice wants you to get back to all your daily activities as soon as possible. You may have some redness following a session and choose to lay low for several days, but you don’t have to have any official downtime following treatment.
