What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing works by delivering therapeutic levels of energy into the deepest layers of your skin, where it stimulates collagen growth and helps tighten underlying tissues.

As the heated skin cells trigger your body’s natural healing mechanisms to form new, healthier tissues, you’ll see smoother, more youthful skin with fewer wrinkles, age spots, and flaws.

Dr. Krishingner and his team use the Icon™ Aesthetic System by CynoSure® to rejuvenate and refresh tired skin. The Icon’s non-invasive fractional laser technology penetrates more deeply than similar types of lasers, giving you superior, long-lasting results.

What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

Although laser skin resurfacing can’t completely erase every flaw, it can correct or significantly improve the appearance of many common skin issues, including:

  • Deep wrinkles and fine lines
  • Blotchy, uneven skin tone or texture
  • Leathery, sun-damaged skin
  • Increased pigmentation and age spots
  • Surfaces scars, including acne scars
  • Rosacea and broken capillaries
  • Spider veins on the face, neck, and legs

How does the Icon reduce the appearance of scars?

Laser skin resurfacing is effective for reducing the appearance of many types of scars, including widespread acne scars, all while promoting healthy, smoother-looking skin.   

To target acne scars and other types of surface scars, the Icon laser causes miniscule perforations in the scar tissue. As the laser energy breaks up these unwanted tissues, it stimulates collagen growth and decreases laxity through each dermal layer.

How does the Icon diminish dark spots?

If you have age spots or increased areas of pigmentation caused by long-term sun damage, laser skin resurfacing can correct or significantly diminish their appearance.

Using specific energy wavelengths, the laser targets clumps of excess pigment and breaks them up into tiny particles, which are then absorbed by your immune system and flushed from your body.    

Because the Icon also stimulates collagen renewal, it can diminish the appearance of dark spots and other pigmented lesions without harming the surrounding tissue.  

Am I a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is most often used to rejuvenate tired facial skin; it’s especially effective for addressing commonly perceived problems like age-related wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.

It can also be used to revitalize the skin on many other parts of your body, including your neck, chest, back, legs, arms, and hands.

Although laser skin resurfacing is safe and effective for most people — and the Icon laser can be safely used on all skin types — it isn’t right for everyone. You should avoid the treatment if:

  • You’ve taken the acne medication isotretinoin in the past year
  • You’re pregnant or nursing
  • The treatment area has undergone radiation therapy
  • You have diabetes, an autoimmune disorder, or a weakened immune system
