Your skin can really take a beating. Over the course of your lifetime, your skin has to deal with several issues, leaving it worse for wear. But fractional laser skin resurfacing with the Cynosure Icon 1540® can give your skin its former glow in as little as one treatment. This fractional, non-ablative laser covers a wide range of skin problems, including sun damage, scarring, and the signs of aging.
Now that the bliss of summer has subsided, and the temps have already started to plunge here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s time to do something about the damage caused by those long days spent in the hot sun. While you might think that your skin has recovered from the latest sunburn, your outer layer may actually be suffering from years of built-up damage. And sun damage could be showing up in any number of ways—sun spots, freckles, discolorations, dry and rough texture, lines and wrinkles. And that’s not to mention the more serious possibilities like skin cancer. Fortunately, laser skin resurfacing can counteract these issues on the most common areas that sustain sun damage, including the face, neck, and décolletage.
Scarring is forever, or is it? Those visible permanent marks can kill your confidence. But now you don’t have to see the constant reminder of bad memories every time you look in the mirror. With laser skin resurfacing, your scars from a prior trauma or surgery can be faded into near oblivion. But the benefits of the Cynosure Icon 1540 don’t stop there. It can also address acne scars. Active acne is bad enough, and the scars that it often leaves behind can be a real source of embarrassment. This powerful laser treatment is effective on different types of acne scars—ice pick, box car, and rolling. Keep in mind that laser treatments can’t completely erase the appearance of scarring. However, it can treat the marks so well that they are barely noticeable.
The Signs of Aging
This is the big one. All of those unavoidable symptoms of getting older are going to show up at some point. Fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, loose skin, facial blood vessels, rough texture, age spots—the list goes on. But just because they may be inevitable doesn’t mean that you have to put up with them. Laser skin resurfacing can address all those common symptoms within the same treatment. Even better, the Cynosure Icon 1540 can also be used on other areas of the body that may be showing off your age. With its deep-penetrating laser energy, this versatile device can target unattractive leg veins as well as stretch marks, making it the only FDA-approved laser for this treatment.
