Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation with the Icon Aesthetic System addresses the common signs of aging, acne scars, and facial veins and blemishes. Laser skin rejuvenation restores your skin to a healthier condition from the inside outward. The Icon laser system by CynoSure®, a leader in laser aesthetic treatments, reduces the appearance of common skin problems, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Areas of darker pigmentation
  • Freckles
  • Visible veins
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars

The Icon laser system uses a combination of laser energy and intense pulsed light (IPL), so you get the most effective treatment based on your individual skin condition. Dr. Sripada customizes a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results for younger, healthier skin.

How does skin rejuvenation improve my skin?

Controlled laser and IPL energy penetrates below the surface of your skin to break up areas of darker pigment, such as age spots and sun damage. The thermal energy targets unwanted pigmentation, scar tissue, and wrinkles so you’re left with brighter, tighter, glowing skin. The laser energy helps to activate and increase collagen and elastin production — something your body makes less of as you age.

Collagen and elastin are the building blocks and support structure for firmer skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles. As the laser energy stimulates new collagen and elastin production, your skin replaces damaged tissue with younger, healthier, rejuvenated tissue. Icon laser skin rejuvenation treatments are ideal since they’re noninvasive and have little to no downtime or side effects.

Am I a good candidate for skin rejuvenation treatments?

You may be an ideal candidate for Icon laser skin rejuvenation treatments if you are in good overall health, and you wish to significantly improve the appearance of your skin without surgery. As a skilled primary care physician, Dr. Sripada assesses your health and your skin conditions to recommend the most effective methods of minimizing age spots, wrinkles, or reducing the appearance of acne scars and facial veins. If you are a good candidate, Dr. Sripada creates a personalized treatment plan to rejuvenate your skin as part of your overall health and wellness.

In most cases, you can have a more youthful appearance with minimal discomfort or interruption to your schedule in just 1-3 Icon laser treatments.
