Laser Treatments Q & A

What is the Icon laser system?

The Icon laser platform uses fractional laser technology to direct pulses of light energy into the deeper layers of your skin. Unlike other laser therapies, the Icon laser does not ablate or vaporize your skin cells. 

Treatments create heat in the deeper tissue layers, leaving the outermost layers unharmed. Your body perceives that heat as damage and responds with a powerful healing reaction. New collagen is produced, which creates a layer of natural padding similar to the tissue structure you had in your youth. 

That additional collagen smooths your skin, lessening the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. It also smooths stretch marks and other forms of scarring. 

Some of the other skin concerns that can be treated with the Icon laser include:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Textural irregularities
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Generally loose or sagging skin
  • Spider veins

Treatments are not painful and require no preparation or anesthesia. You’ll begin to see some results right away, but it can take several months for the full results to develop as new tissue is created. 

What can be done to treat skin tags and warts?

If skin tags or warts are marring your complexion, help is available through a treatment known as cryoprobe. This approach uses a liquid nitrogen spray and a special attachment that directs the spray onto the treatment area. 

A thin layer of gel protects your skin from the freezing temperature of the liquid nitrogen. The cryoprobe handpiece allows Dr. Jeereddy to target an incredibly small area. When the liquid nitrogen hits the skin tag or wart, the tissue freezes, and those cells are destroyed. 

Your body then processes and sheds those damaged cells, leaving your skin clear and unmarked by abnormal growths and areas of hyperpigmentation. 

What can be done to eliminate unwanted hair?

Dr. Jeereddy also offers laser hair removal, which is one of the most popular nonsurgical aesthetic treatments on the market. Laser hair removal works by creating heat at the base of targeted hair follicles.

That heat damages your hair root and prevents normal regrowth. With a series of treatments, you can achieve soft, smooth skin. Laser hair removal is a great option to eliminate hair on your:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Face
  • Bikini line

You can even spot-treat small areas like the backs of your hands or the tops of your toes.
