Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

Family Health Care Aesthetics

What is skin rejuvenation?

Family Health Care Aesthetics offers skin rejuvenation treatments with laser therapy that can improve the appearance of facial skin flaws, including:

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

The team at Family Health Care Aesthetics uses the ICON™ laser, which can improve the way your skin looks and feels without surgery or lengthy downtime.

How does a skin rejuvenation treatment work?

The ICON fractional laser emits tiny microbeams of laser energy to a targeted area of tissue. The beams extend through the top layer of your skin and into the layers below to reach damaged tissue without harming the surface of your skin.

Your body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue by stimulating the production of collagen, which plumps and tightens your skin, minimizing wrinkles and reducing the appearance of blemishes and scars.

The ICON works on all skin types, including very light and very dark skin. Most sessions last for no longer than an hour. Your treatment plan is adjusted based on your desired effect and lifestyle.

How many treatments will I need?

Skin resurfacing takes time, so most men and women need between 3-4 treatments about five weeks apart. New collagen production takes about six weeks and can continue for at least six months after your last treatment, so you continue to see the healing effects of the collagen long after your initial treatment.

What should I expect during skin rejuvenation treatment?

The ICON laser has cooling technology built into the applicator, but you may feel some mild discomfort. Your expert at Family Health Care Aesthetics can provide a topical anesthetic if needed, and applies cold packs immediately after treatment to keep your skin comfortable.

There’s no downtime after your treatment; however, skin that has undergone laser rejuvenation is more susceptible to sun damage. Be cautious in the sun and always wear sunblock after your skin rejuvenation treatment.

Is skin rejuvenation only for the face?

In addition to treating cosmetic concerns on your face, the skilled staff at Family Health Care Aesthetics can also use the ICON laser to treat: 

  • Surface blood vessels
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Spider and varicose veins

The team can also use the ICON laser system to reduce unwanted hair, permanently.
