Icon Photofacial Q & A
What happens to my skin as I age?
As the years go by, a number of forces age your skin, starting with simple wear-and-tear. Your skin plays a critical role in protecting your body and, in this role, it undergoes a fair amount of abuse from the elements and the environment, leaving you with brown spots, spider veins, and scarring.
Second, your collagen and elastin production naturally begins to wane with age. Without these structural proteins, your skin loses elasticity and tone, which leads to fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Finally, this loss of elasticity allows the thin layer of fat beneath the surface of your skin to migrate downward, leaving you with hollowing cheeks and sagging jowls.
What is an Icon photofacial?
The Icon ThreeForMe system is designed to address the following issues during a photofacial:
- Facial veins
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
Ultimately, this laser system is versatile enough to treat most skin problems. When you go in for your consultation at Access Healthcare, your doctor reviews your goals and tailors the best treatment plan for your situation.
When will I see results?
The Icon technology works in two ways: First, it targets and destroys old and damaged skin cells, pigment, and facial veins, allowing your body to flush away the debris naturally. Second, it spurs a mild healing response in your skin, which comes in the form of renewed collagen and elastin production.
This means that your results will be both immediate and gradual, and most patients see optimal results 6-12 weeks after their treatment.
