Rather than living with the reminder that comes with acne and surgical scars, you can reduce their appearance. Icon laser scar treatments are designed to reduce the appearance of acne and surgical scars to improve the overall tone and texture of the scar. Scar reduction treatments are now available in St. Louis at the Women’s Laser Center of St. Louis!
SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
The Icon Aesthetic System uses pulses of laser light which is gently delivered to acne and surgical scars. This aids in breaking down scar tissue to help generate new, healthier skin. The healthy tissue that is generated during laser scar treatment should help the scar fade away, leaving clearer, smoother skin behind.* This is a non-invasive treatment and works on most skin types. We also use the new technology of the PicoSure® Focus to reduce the appearance of scars.
Each acne and surgical scar reduction treatment with the Icon takes less than 30 minutes. Each patient’s skin and scar condition is different, although 3-5 sessions are typically needed to provide optimal results. Depending on the severity of the scar, more sessions may be needed for complete scar removal. This treatment is considered to be of mild discomfort, although Contact Cooling™ technology is provided to help keep the patient more comfortable. There is no anesthesia needed, so patients are able to resume their daily activities following treatment without any downtime.
