The aging process is an inevitable part of the cycle of life, but it brings with it a number of problems. One of these is the appearance of skin blemishes and lesions as a result of years of exposure to the ultraviolet rays in sunlight.
The most frequently seen blemishes are:
Luckily Dr. Mian is able to use the Icon system to administer facial skin revitalization and remove these marks and blemishes, improving your skin tone and giving you a clearer, more youthful complexion.
Facial skin revitalization treatment is noninvasive, so there’s no need for sedatives, anesthetics, or prolonged recovery time after the procedure. Dr. Mian uses the Icon’s handpiece in a gliding motion over the treatment area, targeting the brown spots and surface vessels with the pulsed light produced by the Icon machine.
The skin lesions and blemishes absorb the energy from the light pulses, which then destroys them. The surrounding skin is unharmed but plays an important role in stimulating the growth of new, replacement skin.
You may feel a sensation that’s a bit like the snapping of a rubber band as the handpiece passes over your skin, followed by a sensation of warmth. Each treatment session varies in length according to the number of lesions and blemishes that need treating and may last from a few minutes to half an hour. Patients normally need between one and three treatments for optimal results.
Broken vessels and spider veins should look better straight after the treatment, whereas for other types of skin lesions the treatment takes time to work. The process takes a few weeks to complete as your body sheds the dead cells that made up the blemish and replace them with new skin.
Dr. Mian specializes in achieving exceptional results for aesthetic patients, and she optimizes her facial skin revitalization treatments for clearing vascular and pigmented lesions effectively. To book a consultation, call Serene Laser and Skin Care today, or make an appointment online.
