Skin rejuvenation used to require several different devices, each designed to target different skin conditions. However, the Icon 1540 laser is capable of treating a number of the most common skin concerns we see every day, including scarring, pigmentation spots, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles. It minimizes the signs of aging by safely and gently penetrating deep into the tissue to increase collagen and elastin production and restore the skin’s youthful elasticity. And thanks to the laser’s patented cooling system, there are no risks of burning the skin.
Let’s take a look at how exactly the treatment works and some of the top benefits you can look forward to with the Icon 1540 laser!
How the Icon 1540 Laser Works
The Icon 1540 laser is a fractional non-ablative laser that delivers laser energy deep into the skin. This kickstarts collagen and elastin production and triggers the body’s natural healing process, which can smooth out unwanted wrinkles, diminish stretch marks, fade scars, and erase hyperpigmentation. It does all this without affecting or hurting any of the surrounding skin. Over the next few weeks after treatment, you’ll start to see your skin becoming smoother and younger-looking.
Benefits of Icon 1540 Laser
The Icon 1540 laser comes with a wide array of benefits, including everything from a reduction in the visible signs of aging to an improved skin tone and texture. A few of the benefits you can expect include:
The Icon 1540 laser is highly effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, including crow’s feet and nasolabial folds. Patients typically see improvement after one to three 30-minute sessions.
The Icon 1540 laser can also target the hyperpigmentation and depressions that come with scars. The Icon laser smooths out irregularities and reduces pigmentation by initiating the body’s natural healing process. Most scars need anywhere from three to six treatment sessions for best results, with most patients noticing improvement in about 10-14 days.
Reduces Stretch Marks
Stretch marks often show up after excessive weight gain and, more specifically, when gaining weight during pregnancy. They are common on the stomach, thighs, hips, buttocks, and sometimes the breasts. Stretch marks initially appear as reddish lines that tend to turn white and become more prominent as time goes by. The Icon 1540 laser promotes collagen and elastin production to improve the color and texture of the skin and reduce or eliminate stretch marks.
Improves Skin Tone and Smoother Texture
The Icon 1540 laser is also effective at improving the overall tone and texture of the skin. Due to the loss of collagen and elastin as we age, the skin typically takes on a dull and rough appearance and becomes less supple. The 1540 laser treatment increases collagen and elastin production and helps to make the skin appear smoother, youthful, and more toned.
Effective on all Complexions
In the past, conventional laser treatment was not always effective on some skin types and usually only saw good results on people with fair complexions and dark hair. However, the Icon laser comes with a wider spectrum of wavelengths, ensuring it’s effective on a broad range of skin types and suitable for virtually everyone.
Shorter Recovery Time
Some laser treatments can be very invasive, causing irritation and redness, resulting in a significant recovery time. However, because it is designed to target the deeper layers of skin, you never have to worry about irritation or redness on the skin’s surface with the Icon 1540 laser. And with a shorter recovery time, you’ll also be able to see your results much sooner.
