Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a term that encompasses a variety of laser treatments. As the name suggests, it describes a technique in which a laser removes layers of skin to allow new skin to surface. Laser skin resurfacing can rejuvenate the appearance of dull, dehydrated or damaged skin.

The team at Cleveland Family Health utilizes the latest in laser technology, the Icon™ laser, to address your skin concerns. Your provider will first determine the proper wavelength for your skin type and need. The laser is then used to deliver pulses of light-based energy deep into the layers of your skin. As your skin absorbs this energy, it begins to rebuild, dramatically improving the quality and appearance of the skin.

The Icon laser can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks

The Icon laser can safely be used on all hair and skin combinations.

Is laser skin resurfacing painful?

Icon laser treatments are not painful and cause minimal discomfort. Prior to your treatment, your provider will apply a topical cream to your face to prevent pain and discomfort during the procedure.

The Icon laser is noninvasive. Some patients have experienced temporary redness post-treatment. However, the procedure requires no downtime and can even be done during a lunch break. You can resume your everyday activities immediately.

Following laser resurfacing treatment, your skin may be extra sensitive to the sun. You may be advised to wear a stronger sunscreen or stay out of the sun for a period of time. Talk to your provider at Cleveland Family Health about what to expect.

How long before I see results?

The powerful Icon laser allows for quick and effective results without the need for surgery. Many patients see results after their first session. To ensure optimal results, most patients receive at least three treatments, and results are typically long-lasting. Your provider at Cleveland Family Health will let you know the results you can expect, as well the recommended number of treatment sessions.
