Scar Reduction

How does scar reduction work?

The Icon system uses advanced laser technology to break down excess tissue fibers in raised scars. Your body naturally metabolizes the destroyed tissues over time as waste, and you won’t need any follow-up care to achieve your desired results.

The physicians at Simi Doctors Medical use the specialized Icon 1540 attachment to deliver laser energy directly to the scar, ensuring a higher level of precision in your treatment and no risk for damage to the surrounding skin.

After your scar-reduction treatment with the Icon laser, you see a visible improvement in your skin in the area of the scar. Your scar is less noticeable, and your skin becomes tighter and smoother. Treatment with the Icon laser can also address discoloration in regions around the scar, improving your overall skin tone and texture.

The Icon laser is also an effective treatment option for reducing the appearance of stretch marks following weight loss or childbirth. As with acne scar treatments, the laser energy breaks down the tissue fibers involved in stretch marks to reduce their visibility and enhance the overall texture of your skin.

Am I a good candidate for scar reduction treatments?

The Icon laser system is safe and effective for all skin types. Because the treatment requires no surgery or anesthesia, it’s a good option for many people who want to address scars or stretch marks without incisions or other invasive procedures.

Your Simi Doctors Medical provider can determine if scar-reduction treatments are a good option for you based on the severity of the scar and its location. They also review your health history and discuss your expectations for treatment before suggesting scar reduction.

You may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results, and your Simi Doctors Medical provider customizes your treatment based on your individual needs.

What are the benefits of laser scar reduction?

If you’re bothered by the appearance of scars on your face or stretch marks on your body, scar-reduction treatments using the Icon laser can effectively reduce their visibility without the need for surgery. Other benefits of laser scar reduction services include:

  • No downtime
  • No recovery time
  • Minimal side effects
  • No risk for additional scars

You can expect to get right back to work or your other activities immediately following your treatment with no limitations.

The Icon laser system is gentle enough not to damage the surrounding skin, yet powerful enough to address moderate to severe acne scars and surgical scars.
