Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation treatments with the Icon by CynoSure® offers a more youthful look by triggering a wound response in your skin that harnesses your natural healing forces. For months after your Icon treatment, your skin rebuilds itself with newer, stronger cells, resolving age-related issues such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Brown spots
  • Unwanted veins

Depending on your needs, your aesthetic expert at Advanced Dental Centers uses the versatile Icon laser to resolve several issues during a single treatment session.

How does the Icon laser improve fine lines and wrinkles?

As your skin ages, the matrix that supports it gets weaker and less flexible, leading to skin that’s thinner, drier, and prone to sagging and wrinkling. The Icon laser energy emits pulses of light that penetrate your skin, reaching into its sublayers to break up the old strands of collagen and elastin in the weakened matrix. It also uses fractional energy to remove the outermost layer of your skin, revealing healthier, newer skin underneath.

The heat that penetrates your skin layers increases the circulation of blood and oxygen to the treatment area, flushing away old cells and weakened collagen and elastin. The blood and oxygen nourish your skin and help it rebuild itself over time.

Though your skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin as you age, an Icon treatment boosts the production of these key building blocks. Over the next weeks to months, your remodeled skin looks and feels:

  • Smoother
  • Clearer
  • Firmer
  • Thicker
  • Moister

If you only notice a few facial flaws, you may only need one Icon treatment. If you have significant sagging and wrinkling, your Advanced Dental Centers expert may recommend a series of treatments, spaced about a month apart.

How does the Icon remove brown spots and unwanted veins?

The Icon features a unique Skintel™ melanin reader. Your aesthetician takes a reading of the dark spots or visible veins you’d like to remove and adjusts the Icon’s settings accordingly. The intense pulsed light (IPL) of this versatile system then targets the pigment in the unwanted blemishes.

You may notice an immediate reduction of visible veins and brown spots after your treatment. Some brown spots may crust over the next weeks and eventually flake off.
