What Can Body Laser Resurfacing Do?

  • Remove scars and stretch marks
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles 
  • Tighten sagging skin
  • Improve the overall look and feel of your skin

How Icon 1540 Skin Resurfacing Works

The Icon 1540 handpiece penetrates deeply into the skin to deliver energy using tiny beams of powerful light. These beams create columns of skin coagulation, which means that the old, damaged skin cells are replaced with brand-new, healthy skin cells.

The body’s collagen production process is also triggered during treatment, which eventually enhances skin cell renewal. All of this results in the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks being gradually—but significantly—reduced. 

Dr. Lamoureux’s Approach 

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Alissa Lamoureux has extensive, in-depth knowledge and experience of laser platforms. When you choose her to perform your laser procedure, you can be sure that she never simply treats you and “that’s that”. Instead, she remains with you throughout the entire journey—right up until you’re happy with your results.

Before Treatment

Any kind of tan must have faded for at least one month prior to treatment. Any active infections, including cold sores, must be treated medically and resolved before your laser skin surfacing in the Worcester, MA area. In addition, aggressive sun protection (hats, scarves, strong sunscreen, etc.) is required throughout the entire treatment process. Dr. Lamoureux will review your medical history and ensure you are an appropriate candidate for this treatment.

Treatment Details

It’s important to us that you’re comfortable during treatment, and Dr. Lamoureux uses a variety of methods to ensure this. She gives you plenty of time to pre-treat with an anesthetic, she makes sure you’re in a comfortable position before the procedure, and we utilize a cooling device throughout your treatment. 

Before treatment begins, we will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing agent. You will also be given protective eyewear. Once you’re ready, the Icon 1540 handpiece will be applied directly to your skin, where it will treat the areas needed in a “stamp” motion. Treatment time takes 20-45 minutes, and typically 4-6 treatments (spaced one month apart) are needed for optimal results.

Recovery and Results

There is minimal downtime after an Icon 1540 laser resurfacing treatment. Depending on the location on your body where you underwent treatment, most patients go right back to their regular activities afterward—although some see temporary redness, warmth, and/or swelling of the treated area or stretch marks for a few days. If the treatment area was on your face or an area visible to the public, you may experience a few days of social downtime, and we advise you to plan accordingly.  We advise limiting your exercise routine in the days following the treatment as well.

Over the course of the following weeks and months, you will see a gradual reduction of scars and stretch marks and an overall improvement of your skin tone and texture.
