Wrinkle Removal Q & A

New Hope Medical Clinic

What is the Icon Aesthetic System?

The Icon is a powerful laser platform that offers your New Hope Medical Clinic provider several options to choose from when treating your skin care concerns. Each attachment provides varying laser wavelengths that target specific problems, including age spots, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. This gives your skin care expert the option of designing a customized treatment plan that meets your needs.

What Types of Wrinkles Can You Treat with Laser Therapy?

Laser therapy is effective for men and women who want to reduce facial wrinkles, including those around your eyes, mouth, cheeks, and forehead. It can also smooth away so-called “smoker’s lines” near your lips.

Wrinkle-reducing laser treatments also help restore a youthful appearance to the skin on your hands, neck, and arms. And it’s all accomplished without a single surgical incision.

How Does a Laser Reduce Wrinkles?

Laser therapy stimulates your body’s natural skin renewal process by encouraging it to produce collagen and elastin. These two substances encourage new cell growth to repair and rebuild the support structure in your skin that helps keep it firm and wrinkle-free during youth.  As you age, collagen and elastin production slow and cause your skin to weaken and develop wrinkles.

Laser treatments stimulate natural collagen and elastin production, essentially encouraging your skin to rebuild itself from the inside out. The therapy minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and improves your skin’s texture and tone.

Does Laser Treatment Hurt?

Most patients report little discomfort, often just a mild stinging sensation. Your provider can apply topical numbing cream before the procedure to help minimize even mild discomfort. They also take time to discuss your options before you schedule your laser treatment.

Do I Need More than One Treatment?

The number of treatments you require for optimal results really depends on the amount of skin damage you’ve experienced and your treatment goals. Many patients find they’re very satisfied after only one treatment while others choose to return for additional sessions.
