Scar and Stretch Mark Removal Q&A

What is the ICON™ Fractional Laser?
This is an innovative fractional erbium laser that alters damaged skin as well as stimulates the skin to produce new collagen. In turn, this laser will cause your body to create new skin tissue, rejuvenating your skin and causing your stretch marks and scars to fade.
Can stretch marks be removed?
Like any scar, stretch marks are permanent, but treatment may make them less noticeable. Treatment can also help alleviate the itch.

How does the ICON™ Fractional Laser work?
Icon™ utilizes fractional laser technology to deliver specialized pulses of energy into your skin and targets your unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the area that was treated.

What should I know prior to receiving the ICON 1540 Fractional Laser treatment?
Most people feel mild discomfort during the treatment. This also depends on the patient’s pain tolerance level. Most sessions do not take longer than 30-45 minutes, unless the area being treated is a large size. Depending on the condition being treated 1-3 treatment sessions are recommended for skin renewal and 3-5+ sessions are recommended for stretch marks and scars, or potentially more, depending on various factors. Time of treatment and number of sessions are based on the size of the area, scar/stretch mark appearance, etc. Treatment sessions should be scheduled 2-6 weeks apart.
