About Skin Revitalization
Uneven skin tone is a common aesthetic problem we all notice as we age, especially if we have an active lifestyle out in the sun. After years of unprotected sun exposure, you will see brown spots, freckles, sunspots. You may also notice unwanted vessels around your nose or rosacea on your cheeks. We can help reveal your glowing complexion with skin revitalization.
Skin revitalization is ideal for reducing the appearance of pigment on your face, chest, or hands, including age spots and sun damage. It is also the perfect solution for unwanted vessels on your face, including, broken vessels or rosacea (redness/flushing of the cheeks). In just a few quick treatment sessions, you will see a reduction in the appearance of brown spots and vessels leaving you with an evener skin tone and beautiful looking skin.
BENEFITS OF LASER TREATMENT FOR SUN SPOTS, AGE SPOTS, ROSACEA & FACIAL VEINS
- Promotes even skin-tone with decreased redness
- Generates a smoother skin texture
- Lightens/eliminates sunspots
HOW IT WORKS
Icon™ utilizes optimized pulsed light technology which, unlike lasers, uses many wavelengths of light with special filters that deliver the best wavelengths to treat specific aesthetic conditions. During treatment, specialized pulses of light are delivered into your skin and target brown spots, sun-damage, and vessels without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once these targets absorb the energy, they are destroyed and will slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process. You will see your brown spots turn darker in color and flake off over the next few weeks. You may also see an immediate improvement in your vessels with a continued clearance over the next few weeks.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE DAY OF TREATMENT
We apply lotion to the treatment area. You will also be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the light during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the laser over the treatment area. You may also feel a rubber-band like snapping when the energy is being delivered into your skin, which disappears almost immediately; however, a warm sensation after the treatment is common. Depending on the size of the area, procedures can take just minutes.
After the treatment, we remove the lotion and apply a cooling gel. Bandages and ointments are not necessary due to the nature of the treatments being so minimally invasive. For a few days after your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn but can resume your typical day to day activities immediately following treatment.
IF YOU ARE A LASER SKIN REVITALIZATION PATIENT, PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Before your appointment, remove all make-up and lotions.
- 4-weeks before your appointment, discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment.
- 2-weeks pre and post-treatment, discontinue use of all Retinals and Glycolics.
