One of the most common aesthetic problems as we age is that our skin tone becomes uneven, especially if we lead active lifestyles in the sun. Skin rejuvenation is your answer to these common concerns to reveal your glowing complexion. Skin rejuvenation using the Icon™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser is ideal for lessening the appearance of pigment on your face, hands or chest including freckles, sun damage, age spots, or birthmarks. It is also the perfect solution for unwanted vessels on your face including rosacea on your cheeks, broken vessels, or spider veins. In just a few quick treatment sessions you will see a more even skin tone and beautiful looking skin with minimal downtime. Dr E Peter Anzaldo offers revitalizing skin treatments to patients in Orange, California. To set up a complimentary aesthetic consultation call our office at 714-997-7140.
How does it work?
The Icon™ laser utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) technology that delivers the best wavelengths to treat specific aesthetic conditions. As the Icon™ laser handpiece moves over the area being treated, intense pulses of light are delivered into your skin and target sun damage, brown spots and vessels without harming the surrounding skin. Once the energy is aborbed by the targeted areas, they will be destroyed and will slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process. Your brown spots will get darker in color and flake off over the next few weeks. You may also see an immediate improvement in your vessels with continued skin rejuvenation over the next few weeks.
What To Expect On The Day Of Treatment
Before the Icon™ intense pulsed light (IPL) handpiece is used, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin where you will receive treatment if requested. You will also be given eye shields to wear to protect your eyes from the light during treatment. Most people report feeling heat or a tingling sensation during the treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation with the Icon™ IPL laser can be safely used on most skin types. During your complimentary aesthetic consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, they will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on your unique factors.
How long does the treatment take?
Sessions can range from 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the condition being treated and the size of the area. You will see continued improvement of your treated area over the first 6 weeks.
How many treatments will I need?
1 to 3 treatement sessions are recommended depending on the condition being treated. Treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-4 weeks apart.
What is the ThreeForMe treatment?
The ThreeForMe laser treatments are the most affective way to solve multiple skin concers at one time – red & brown spots, facial veins and wrinkles. The ThreeForMe treatment utilizes both of IPL & fractional laser (see wrinkle reduction service) technology of the Icon™.
