The Icon™ uses fractional laser light beams to reach deep below the surface of the skin and trigger the body’s healing response. The laser energy breaks down stretch marks and stimulates new skin cell production to naturally revitalize in stretch marks. Laser treatments can improve the color and texture of your stretch marks without harming your skin.
Depending on the patient’s skin type, three to five appointments may be recommended to achieve the best results. Patients may experience some slight discomfort, but a cooling cream can be used to make the laser application more comfortable. The side effects usually include some redness and swelling, but they will not last long. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatments without experiencing any downtime.
