Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Q & A

What is skin rejuvenation treatment?

The innovative Icon IPL and nonablative laser gently removes the outer layer of your skin, eliminating dead, unhealthy skin to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. Using controlled microbeams of nonablative laser energy, the aesthetician can address a variety of skin issues, including:

  • Wrinkles

  • Fine lines

  • Age spots

  • Acne scars

  • Sun damage

Your overall skin tone and texture improves as your skin heals. New, healthy tissue continues to grow, making you look younger and more vibrant.

While the Icon IPL and nonablative laser is highly effective in removing your skin’s top layer, it won’t damage other tissue outside of the treatment area.

Am I a good candidate for skin rejuvenation treatment?

As long as your skin is in overall good condition and free of open wounds and infection, the Poway Women’s Care team can recommend skin rejuvenation treatments to achieve your desired results.

The Icon system is versatile enough to work on all types and tones of skin, from the palest shades to the darkest skin tones. With skin rejuvenation treatment, you can address multiple problems with just one treatment. To maintain your results, the team may recommend additional skin rejuvenation treatment appointments if new spots or wrinkles develop.

How long does it take to recover from skin rejuvenation treatments?

Following your treatment, your skin may appear red and you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. Your skin heals naturally over time without additional treatment.

However, until the redness resolves, you may want to skip social engagements for a brief period until your skin heals. You should also avoid sun exposure in the treatment area to prevent damage to the skin.

As your healthy skin develops, it’s important that you use a high-quality moisturizer, such as the Obagi® skin care line used by the Poway Women’s Care team, as your skin can become dry and flaky after treatment. You should also use a reliable sunscreen daily to prevent new sun spots and wrinkles from forming.
