FAQs about the surgical scar removal treatment

How it works

Acne Scars

FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING – ICON TECHNOLOGY by Cynosure

From minimal texture irregularities to deep surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, acne scars, or anything in between, most people have experienced some kind of textural concerns that bother them. Some service options available for these types of concerns are not as aggressive as a laser resurfacing treatment. They help to slightly improve damage; however a deeper more aggressive treatment option can be preformed to safely and quickly repair the skin with minimal downtime.

What is FRACTIONAL LASER SKIN RESURFACING? 

This diode laser system is FDA and Health Canada approved. It can treat scars, deep wrinkles, acne pitting and stretch marks. It is a  non-surgical treatment, with minimal down time, mild discomfort and long lasting results

How does the Fractional Skin Resurfacing work? 

Laser skin resurfacing uses fractional microbeam technology to emit columns of laser energy deep into the skin. It will selectively target and break down scar tissue or textural imperfections. By delivering the energy into microbeams, the body’s natural healing process will create new healthy cells faster, reducing any potential experienced downtime. The increase of collagen and elastin will help to rebuild depth loss and smooth out skin textures. 

What to expect during and after the treatment?

Every patient’s experience is different: it depends on how aggressive the treatment is. Most patients tolerate this treatment very well. Our medical aestheticians can apply a numbing cream to help with the discomfort. Multiple sessions are needed for optimal results. One should notice an improvement one month post each session. Our patients love how effective this treatment is, and that it only requires minimal down time. Most of our patients have described the after treatment time as a sun burn sensation accompanied with minor swelling for 24-48 hours post treatment.  The treatment takes approximately 30 – 60 minutes to complete and typically you can resume your regular daily activities.

  • Deep facial wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Mouth wrinkles

How does ThreeForMe work?

ThreeForMe is exclusive to the clinically-proven Icon laser, and is performed in two steps:

  • The second step addresses wrinkles and fine lines using a “microbeam” laser technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production – the keys to the support structure of our skin.

Combining these technologies provides the benefits of both in less time – giving you the younger-looking skin you want, only sooner!

 
What to expect

The skin’s appearance will improve after each treatments. A set of 1-3 treatments might be required. You may see results in facial veins immediately after the treatment along with a darkening of the brown spots. These spots will flake off over the next one to three weeks leaving you with a glowing appearance. You will see progressive results on any fine lines, wrinkles or scarring over the next six months, as your skin naturally responds to the treatment. It’s as easy as one, two, three for me.
