Skin Resurfacing Q & A

How can skin resurfacing benefit my skin?

Skin resurfacing is a treatment that benefits your whole face. It helps with all of the following issues.

  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation, like age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

If you’ve got age spots, scars, or other skin problems on your chest or other parts of your body, skin resurfacing with the Icon 1540 laser can help there, too. Skin resurfacing at Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care is fully customizable, based on the skin issues you need help with.

What is the Icon 1540 laser?

The Icon 1540 laser is a powerful nonablative laser, which means it doesn’t damage your skin. In contrast, ablative lasers actually remove your outer layers of skin during skin resurfacing procedures. As a state-of-the-art nonablative laser, the Icon 1540 offers impressive results, but without the skin damage and major downtime that go along with ablative lasers. 

How does the Icon 1540 resurface my skin?

The Icon 1540 works by passing through the surface of your skin to stimulate rapid cellular turnover in its deep layers. The fast cellular turnover starts new collagen fiber growth, which lends volume and support underneath your skin. Your new collagen fibers move upward to push new, unblemished, skin cells to the skin surface. 

Elastin, the protein that makes up the fibers that keep your skin taut and elastic, increases along with your new collagen to help you recapture the skin you had when you were younger. After skin resurfacing, fresh skin replaces damaged skin as the new collagen and elastin fibers smooth out wrinkles, erase pits from acne scars, and tighten skin. 

How many Icon 1540 skin resurfacing treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies based on your particular needs. For example, if you have severe acne scars, you’re more likely to need a series of 3-7 treatments. But, if you’re looking for overall skin enhancement because of poor tone and texture, just one or two treatments may be enough. Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care works with you to design the plan to give you optimal skin resurfacing.

If you want an all-in-one treatment for aging or damaged skin, Icon 1540 skin resurfacing at Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care is a great choice. Use the online scheduler, or call the office to make your appointment today.
