Sun Damage Q & A

What is Icon MaxY?

Over time, exposure to the sun can cause parts of your skin to become discolored. These changes to your pigmentation, called sunspots, can cover up the natural glow of your skin and make you appear older. Icon MaxY uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to reduce these skin tone changes, even out the color of your skin, and make your skin appear younger and brighter. Treatments are relatively quick and hassle-free, allowing you to get back to your normal activities right away. If you would like to undo the damage that has been done to your skin, speak with Dr. Rezk to learn if Icon MaxY is right for you.

How does Icon MaxY work?

Many treatments for skin imperfections are available, from microdermabrasion to chemical peels to full facelifts. However, Icon MaxY is unique in that it uses targeted lasers to easily and effectively reduce brown sunspot discolorations, helping you to feel more confident in your radiant skin. If you are curious about Icon MaxY and how it works, Dr. Rezk is happy to answer all of your questions at your first appointment.

What areas of the body is Icon MaxY useful for?

If you have spent a considerable amount of time outside, you know that freckles, sunspots, and other sun-related skin blemishes can occur on any area that has been exposed to the sun. Fortunately, Icon MaxY is useful for a wide range of pigments, making it ideal for use on your face, back, arms, neck, chest, and legs.

What should I expect at my appointment?

First Dr. Rezk takes the time to thoroughly discuss your needs and treatment outcome desires with you. He then crafts a comprehensive plan of care based on your discussion. The treatments don’t take long and, depending on the size of the area to be treated, are often completed in under an hour. Depending on the severity of your situation, several treatments may be needed to achieve the best results. Following the treatment, some patients experience minor swelling and a sunburn-like feeling which usually resolve within 2 to 24 hours after the procedure.
