Scar Removal Q&A
What kind of scars does the icon laser remove?
The Belle Aesthetics team uses the Icon laser to remove the most common types of scars, surgical scars and acne scars, anywhere on your face or body. Whether you're dealing with a small but prominent scar or a long and twisted one, Icon scar removal at Belle Aesthetics can help.
How does scar removal work?
Your Belle Aesthetics care provider guides the handheld Icon laser over your scar tissue, one tiny section at a time, in a stamping pattern that covers the scar tissue completely. You’ll wear eye protection for the duration of the treatment. The fractional laser creates tiny pinpoints through your skin to break down the scar tissue and dissipate the melanin causing discoloration. This exposes new, undamaged skin. The healthy skin around your scar tissue isn’t burned or damaged in any way, thanks to the sophisticated Icon technology that seeks only the damaged skin.
Under the skin, the laser stimulates collagen and elastin growth. The collagen rises to give your newly exposed skin support, keeping it firm. The elastin lends tightness and smoothness.
Generally, treatment sessions take only around 30 minutes, but it can vary depending on the size of your scar.
Is scar removal painful?
No, it’s not. The Belle Aesthetics team uses the Icon platform because it offers amazing innovations like the Advanced Contact Cooling™ system. This unique technology delivers frequent cooling to offset the laser heat. Although you could feel some quick pops during the treatment, most patients consider Icon laser scar removal comfortable.
How many scar removal treatments do I need?
How many scar removal sessions you need depends on the amount of scar tissue and length of the scar. On average, most patients need 4-8 treatments. Your Belle Aesthetics care provider tailors a scar removal plan for your situation, so you might need fewer or more treatments. After every treatment, you’ll notice steady scar recession as the damaged tissue is replaced by your healthy new skin. To finally eliminate your scar for good, Icon scar removal at Belle Aesthetics is the best choice. Book an appointment online or call the office to schedule your laser scar removal consultation now.
