Laser Skin Resurfacing Q & A

 

What is TempSure Vitalia Vaginal Tightening?

Laser skin resurfacing with the Icon laser uses pulses of laser therapy to help your skin heal. Each burst of laser energy encourages older, damaged cells to shed away. Treatments simultaneously target the deeper layers of your skin, forcing them to heat up. This effect stimulates collagen and elastin production, and even resolves skin imperfections.

 

What can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Icon laser skin resurfacing at Advanced Medical Aesthetics can treat a wide variety of issues that may make you feel uncomfortable about your skin. Your customized laser skin resurfacing package can resolve and minimize the appearance of:

Stretch marks

Dark spots

Injury or surgical scars

Acne breakouts and scars

 

How many laser skin resurfacing treatments do I need?

You should experience the improvement you desire after your skin heals following a single Icon laser skin resurfacing session. For more advanced issues, like deep acne scars or age-related grooves, the aesthetic team at Advanced Medical Aesthetics might recommend getting two to three monthly sessions to restore your skin, then one to two treatments annually for maintenance.
