Are you unhappy with unsightly stretch marks on your body? These skin imperfections can significantly affect your self-esteem. Laser treatments from Icon can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and restore your self-confidence.

How Do Icon Laser Treatments Work?

Icon laser treatments work by delivering energy impulses to target and heat stretch marks. This helps stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve the skin’s color and texture. The procedure takes between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. During treatment, the provider will cleanse your skin and glide a handpiece over your skin to deliver the energy pulses. The handpiece features a cooling effect that can help minimize any discomfort you may feel during the procedure.

You can resume normal activities immediately after your treatment session. During recovery, you may feel a sunburn sensation on your skin and some minor swelling for a few days. Approximately five treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. You can expect to see results immediately with continued improvement over time.

Ideal Candidates for Icon Laser Treatments

Ideal candidates for Icon laser treatments should be in good general health. Individuals who are pregnant or have clotting disorders or skin infections may not be good candidates. In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate, a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is required. During your appointment, the surgeon will review your medical history and answer any questions you may have.
