If you have cosmetic concerns, particularly concerning the skin on your face, you should know the Icon laser system treats a majority of them. Dr. Lamia Gabal uses the Icon laser for quick, in-office procedures to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and discoloration at her Santa Ana, California, practice. Call or click the link below to schedule an appointment at Prestige Medical Group’s aesthetic center.
The multifunctional Icon system consists of an aesthetic treatment console with seven handpieces and over 80 applications. This allows Dr. Gabal to address nearly any skin trouble you have.
The industry-leading Icon laser uses intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser energy to target those skin and tissue imperfections. The light energy enters your skin and stimulates collagen and elastin production to enhance your skin’s appearance.
Dr. Gabal’s top three targets for the Icon laser include scars, discoloration, and wrinkles.
The Icon fractional laser targets the tissue under the skin to help resurface the scar. This procedure breaks down scar tissue and stimulates the restructuring process for an improved appearance.
The Icon system uses a revolutionary melanin reader to tell Dr. Gabal the location and extent of pigmentation so she can treat areas of discoloration with precision. The laser photorejuvenation treatment itself reduces pigmentation, such as redness, sun spots, and melasma.
The Icon laser delivers energy into the deep layers of the skin. The energy accelerates collagen and elastin production, which results in a tightening effect and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Icon laser treatments give you some of the most effective results outside of surgery. In fact, many men and women are able to avoid surgery due to the favorable effects of one or more laser treatments.
The laser treatments are also generally well tolerated. You may feel a zapping sensation when the laser fires, but Dr. Gabal takes extra measure to ensure your comfort.
You may experience some redness and a slight sunburn-like sensation after the treatment, but those side effects usually don’t prevent a person from going about their normal day. You shouldn’t have to take any downtime or miss any activities due to the treatment.
