Laser Photorejuvenation Q & A

What is laser photorejuvenation?

During your laser photorejuvenation treatment, Dr. Johnston uses the Icon laser to blast imperfections in your skin with the laser’s light energy. As blemishes absorb the laser energy, they start to break up. At the same time, the laser kickstarts your skin’s healing processes. This makes laser photorejuvenation an effective treatment for a vast array of skin conditions, including:

  • Age spots and sun spots
  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles
  • Melasma
  • Scars 
  • Stretch marks
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

How does laser photorejuvenation work?

During your treatment, Dr. Johnston moves the Icon laser over your targeted area. This delivers intense, optimized light to the area. That light energy does two things. First, it breaks up pigmented imperfections in your skin because darker areas absorb more of the laser energy. This causes them to break down so your body can naturally remove them. 

Second, the laser energy stimulates your body’s natural healing processes, triggering the production of new, healthy tissue. This makes laser photorejuvenation effective in treating a range of skin tone and texture concerns, including wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks. 

What should I expect during and after my laser photorejuvenation treatment?

This treatment is designed with your comfort in mind. You’ll relax as Dr. Johnston moves the Icon laser handpiece across the targeted area. The procedure is generally very well-tolerated. Many patients compare it to the sensation of having a rubber band snapped against your skin. 

Not only is the procedure noninvasive with very little discomfort, but it’s also fast. Dr. Johnston performs most Icon sessions in as little as 15 minutes. 

What’s more, you won’t have to worry about any downtime after your laser photorejuvenation procedure. You can continue on with your usual daily activities immediately after your treatment.
