Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is Icon 1540?

For those who are seeking to reduce damaged skin, Icon 1540 is an excellent choice. Icon 1540 is a revolutionary treatment system that uses fractional laser light to break down old and damaged skin, causing your body to build new skin that is more natural in color and texture in its place. Speak with Dr. Rezk to find out if Icon 1540 is right for your needs and learn what you can do to regain the skin you desire.

What can Icon 1540 repair?

The Icon 1540 is specially designed to target and repair physical damage to your skin such as:

  • Scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks

For those who have undergone pregnancy or significant weight loss, Icon 1540 is an excellent solution to reduce the signs of stretch marks. In addition, stubborn acne or surgery scars can effectively be reduced, as well as signs of aging such as wrinkles. If you have questions about whether Icon 1540 treatment is right for your situation, talk to Dr. Rezk to learn more.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments that are right for you depends on what condition you want to treat and how severe your case is. If you simply want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and renew your skin, 1-3 treatments are often sufficient. However, if you are interested in treating stretch marks and scars, 3-5 or more treatments may be necessary. Dr. Rezk will create an individualized treatment plan based on your unique needs.

What can I expect at my appointment?

Initially, you have a consultation with Dr. Rezk to determine your needs and goals for treatment. He then creates an individualized treatment plan. During the procedure, Dr. Rezk places the laser over the areas of treatment. Most patients experience only very mild discomfort, although options are available if you feel that you might be extra sensitive. Following treatment, you will likely experience some swelling, as well as a feeling similar to sunburn. These will resolve quickly. You will notice an improvement after each treatment and will continue to notice further improvement for months to come as your skin heals itself naturally.
