Stretch Mark Removal / Scar Revision / Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is Icon laser therapy?

Dr. Fozouni offers his patients the most advanced laser and pulsed light system available to treat a variety of skin imperfections, the Icon Aesthetic System. This advanced technology is designed to resurface your skin and rebuild lost collagen.

The Icon laser is an FDA-approved system that can treat a variety of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Body hair removal
  • Stretch marks
  • Leg veins
  • Wrinkles

The Icon laser system uses concentrated wavelengths of light energy to gently heat layers of your skin. This innovative system works in a variety of ways depending on the cosmetic treatment you’re getting.

How does Icon laser therapy remove stretch marks?

To treat stretch marks, Dr. Fozouni delivers pulses of fractional laser energy to your affected area. As the heat penetrates deeper layers of your skin, collagen production is triggered, and your skin becomes firmer and more smooth.

Your stretch mark treatment takes as little as 30 minutes. For optimal results, Dr. Fozouni might recommend between three and five Icon treatments.

How does Icon laser therapy treat scars?

Icon laser therapy is an industry leader in scar removal. When Dr. Fozouni directs the laser at your treatment site, the fractional energy penetrates deep into your scar tissue. As your scar tissue breaks down, stimulating collagen production in the area, new cells generate and minimize the appearance of your scar.

Dr. Fozouni recommends Icon laser therapy as a treatment for all scar types, whether you have surgical scars on your abdomen or acne scars on your face. It’s also an effective scar treatment on all skin types.

How does Icon laser therapy remove hair?

Unwanted body hair is a common problem with women, especially if you have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition that causes abnormal hair growth.

During your Icon therapy session, Dr. Fozouni uses the powerful laser to destroy your hair at its source, the root. This precise light-based technology targets your hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging any of your surrounding skin or tissue.

Icon hair removal treatments take a matter of minutes. For best results, Dr. Fozouni may recommend multiple sessions to remove your unwanted hair permanently.
