Skin Resurfacing Q & A


How does laser skin resurfacing work?

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 Pure Luxe Medical can treat a wide variety of blemishes and 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 (melasma)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Injury or surgical scars
  • Acne breakouts and scars

Because the team at Pure Luxe Medical understands that certain areas can be more sensitive, they can apply a topical numbing cream to soothe your skin before getting started.

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 Pure Luxe Medical might recommend getting two to three monthly sessions to restore your skin, then one to two treatments annually for maintenance.

How long does it take for my skin to heal after skin resurfacing?

It’s normal to experience redness, swelling, and even slight inflammation after having an Icon skin resurfacing treatment. These are just signs that your session was effective and that your skin cells are hard at work trying to push away damaged cells. In most cases, these initial side effects fade away within a few days.

Depending on your specific skin, it can take up to two weeks to fully recover after a laser skin resurfacing treatment. The team at Pure Luxe Medical even offer a wide variety of clinical-grade topical solutions to help your skin heal and recover as quickly as possible.
