Skin Revitalization- Vascular & Pigmented Lesions Q and A

What types of problems can be addressed during skin revitalization treatment?

Skin revitalization treatment at 5th Street Medical Spa can help with a number of skin issues, including:

  • Vascular lesions
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines

How does the ICON laser eliminate vascular and pigmented skin lesions?

The ICON laser delivers fractional non-ablative laser light directly into the unwanted pigment or vascular lesions. This causes the pigment to break up into many tiny particles that are reabsorbed into the bloodstream for elimination. The vascular lesions will constrict and then eventually be reabsorbed by the body and eliminated. Additionally, the ICON laser sends energy deep within the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen. This helps fill in skin depressions and fine lines to create a smoother and more youthful look for the skin.

How are treatments customized for you?

The ICON laser is used alongside a Skintel® Melanin Reader™. The Skintel Melanin Reader is a highly advanced type of technology that measures your skin’s melanin index, which allows for your treatment provider to choose the best custom treatment settings for your laser treatment. This allows for optimal results based on your individual needs and skin type.

What kind of results can you expect after skin revitalization treatment?

Results can include:

  • A decrease in the intensity of sun spots
  • Smoother skin
  • A reduction in fine lines
  • A lessening of vascular lesion intensity
  • Overall improved skin tone

How many treatment sessions will you need?

Many patients need to have only one treatment, but this does depend on your specific skin problems and concerns. Once the results of the first treatment are fully evident, you can opt for additional treatments if you want further skin refining. Each treatment session is less than half an hour long.

Will you need any downtime?

No — in fact, most patients are able to return to their regular lifestyle as soon as their skin revitalization treatment is complete. You may have some temporary redness and swelling, so avoid the sun for at least a few days after your treatment.

*Individual results may vary.

Icon Laser Q & A

What is the benefit of the Icon Laser?

The Icon laser uses ablative fractional laser technology to stimulate the regeneration of new skin. The energy from the laser causes enhanced production of collagen and elastin, compounds that provide skin its youthful, springy, and supple appearance. It’s non surgical, meaning you have no incisions or sutures. You’ll have minimal downtime so you can return to your normal activities sooner, and with a refreshed, enhanced look.

What happens at an Icon laser session?

After a consultation with Dr. Divi to make sure you’re a candidate for the treatment, you’ll be scheduled for a short session using the laser on the areas you wish to target. You’ll be set up in a private treatment room, and the Dr. Divi applies the treatment wand to your skin. It starts to emit a cooling sensation, which helps protect your skin and ease the heat sensations experienced during the laser portion of the session.

Dr. Divi moves the wand over the desired treatment areas, where it starts to penetrate the surface layer of the skin. You can expect to feel tingly heat, but most people tolerate the session quite well. Sessions last just 15 to 30 minutes.

What skin conditions can the Icon laser treat?

The laser offers a non-invasive way to enhance your appearance. It has a wide variety of applications, including:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch mark and scar treatment
  • Erasure of leg veins
  • Hair removal on the face and body
  • Skin texture improvement by resurfacing and providing photo rejuvenation

How does the Icon laser work?

The energy from the Icon laser targets structures beneath the surface layer of the skin. Your body responds with a natural healing response to correct dark spots, scar tissue, and deep lines and wrinkles. The laser may also be used to target hair follicles and destroy them so hair can’t regrow in unwanted places.

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing improves the way your skin looks and feels. It addresses flaws, including:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles

The laser works on all skin types and pigments.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of Icon laser treatment sessions you’ll need depends on the number of areas you choose to treat and your desired results. Dr. Divi develops a customized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
