You may experience temporary redness, and/or swelling at the treatment site, and it should go away after few days. Speak with our medical aestheticians and doctors to discuss other possible side-effects and the necessary post-treatment care for your surgical scar.

How long are the treatments?

The treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients see results in 3-7 treatments. The optimum number of treatments can vary. Please work with our doctors for a customized plan!

What type of result can I expect to see?

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.
