Skin Revitalization Q & A

Northstar Urgent Care

How does laser wrinkle reduction work?

When you visit Northstar Urgent Care for wrinkle reduction laser treatment, your doctor uses the innovative Cynosure® Icon® laser system. The Icon erases fine lines and wrinkles, improving the texture and appearance of your skin after just one treatment.

The Icon uses ablative fractional laser energy to penetrate deep into your skin, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that improve the health and elasticity of your skin and its support structures. That makes skin tighter and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.

The laser energy of the Icon system creates micro-abrasions in the deep layers of your skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This response eliminates old, tired skin cells, replacing them with new, rejuvenated cells that smooth your skin and improve its texture and volume.

What happens during laser wrinkle reduction?

Laser treatment with the Icon system tightens your skin without surgery or invasive measures. To begin your treatment, your doctor at Northstar Urgent Care prepares the equipment and gives you a pair of glasses that you must wear throughout the entire treatment process.

Using the Icon handheld device, your doctor administers laser light energy around your wrinkles and fine lines. This FDA-approved treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and requires no downtime after your treatment session.

What results can you expect after laser wrinkle reduction?

You may notice immediate effects after your laser wrinkle reduction treatment. Over the next few weeks to months, wrinkle reduction continues to smooth your skin as it tightens and increases in firmness and elasticity.

While benefits occur with just one treatment, your doctor may recommend two or three sessions to give you the best results. They will schedule these appointments four to six weeks apart to ensure that your skin has completely healed between treatments.

Because the effects of skin tightening occur over time, they’re often more natural looking than more aggressive wrinkle reduction methods like facelifts and injectables.

The changes in laser treatment develop so gradually that people won’t realize you’ve had an aesthetic treatment. They’ll just know you look great.
