Remove Stretch Marks with the Icon™ Aesthetic System
After having a baby, stretch marks can take away from your self-confidence. Stretch marks often appear after gaining weight during pregnancy or puberty. They cannot be prevented with expensive skin care products, because they develop when the existing skin is rapidly strained. Icon laser treatments encourage new skin cell production to revitalize stretch marks from the inside out.
The Icon uses fractional laser light beams to reach deep below the surface of the skin and trigger new skin cell production. As the immune system responds to the laser light, stretch marks are filled in with new skin cells. Stretch marks will be naturally revitalized and fade away without damaging the surrounding skin. Icon laser stretch mark treatments are safe for most skin types.
Depending on the patient’s skin type, three to five sessions are often recommended to achieve the best results. Patients may experience some slight discomfort during the laser application, but a cooling cream can be provided to make the procedure more tolerable. The side effects may include some redness and swelling, but they will not last long. Most people will be able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatments.
