Icon Laser diminishes stretch marks and gets rid of scars. Our Licensed Aestheticians are highly-trained and will customize a treatment to fit your goals using the latest Icon technology. If you have stretch marks, you know it’s tempting to grasp for any product that offers to improve them. Maybe you’ve worked hard to lose weight and get in shape, but stretch marks don’t let you forget how you once looked. Or maybe you were blessed with a child, but those white-lined reminders of the changes your body went through remain.

Until now, stretch marks are something we’ve just had to deal with. Nothing has proved effective, regardless of product promises. Finally, we have something that actually works. The Icon Laser Procedure deals with the problem and produces results that last.

Stretch marks obviously form because the skin has been overstretched, but the reason they stay is because of a breakdown in collagen. What stretch marks need is new tissue. In this procedure, fractional laser light pulses through the skin to break down stretch marks. It also triggers new tissue production. The new collagen leaves the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduces its appearance on the skin.

What Should I Expect?

Are you looking for a natural remedy for stretch marks? Sadly, these stretch marks aren’t going away that easily. The Icon Laser Procedure is one of the few options that produce drastic results. Why don’t the creams work? Because topical products don’t penetrate the layers of skin and address the root of the issue. If a cream somehow manages to penetrate, it only reaches the epidermal (surface) layer of skin. Sometimes a cream will produce slight results, but they don’t last. It’s basically putting a bandaid on the problem but leaving the real issue unchecked.

The fractional laser deals with the source of the scar. It goes into the deep dermis to elicit collagen and elastin production. In order for the scars to actually heal, they need new skin cells which is exactly what collagen and elastin bring about.

What Type of Results Should I Expect?

Because new skin cells are forming, the stretch marks soon become smaller and thinner. There may be some immediate redness after each procedure, but that subsides. The laser smooths the texture of the mark, so your skin should feel as it once did. As a final recommendation, you should complete the healing process by having a photofacial on the area. Even once the skin heals, it may still lack the right pigment in the scarred area. A photofacial deals with any remaining coloration issues. Targeting both pigments, red (hemoglobin-based) and brown (melanin-based), takes your skin the final step closer to its original state.

Finally, there’s a treatment to reduce or even eliminate the unsightly scars that so often leave you frustrated and embarrassed. Contact us if you’re ready to eliminate stretch marks with just a few visits to the office.
