Fractional Laser for Stretch Marks

Cynosure ICON™ Laser 1540 Technology for Stretch Marks in Vancouver, Burnaby & Coquitlam, BC

Experience fractional laser therapy with the Icon Fractional 1540 laser technology is a revolutionary non-invasive laser designed to dramatically improve skin texture and tone, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and surgical scars without significant downtime.

What is a 1540 Laser for Fractional Laser Therapy?

Icon uses Fractional Laser  technology to deliver pulsed energy into your skin and targeting your unwanted pigment, wrinkles, stretch marks or scars without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Once the energy is absorbed into the skin, your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the area that was treated. A typical course of Fractional Laser treatment involves 1-3 sessions, at one-month interval. You can expect to see a decrease in fine wrinkles, as well as smoother and firmer skin texture, after one session.

Stretch Marks

How does Fractional Laser work?

The building blocks of smooth, youthful skin are elastin and collagen—with Fractional laser skin revitalization, pulses of light penetrate the skin’s sub-layers, treating its aging support structure. The body’s natural healing process then rebuilds the tissue, with even texture and fewer wrinkles.

Does Fractional Laser Therapy hurt?

Your treatment provider may offer ways to make this a comfortable experience. Since everyone is different, and this depends on the level of treatment needed, it is best to discuss all of your option with your fractional laser treatment provider.

Am I a good candidate for Fractional Laser 1540?

Fractional Laser Technology of the Icon can be safely used on most skin types. During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

What can I expect following the Fractional Laser treatment?

You may experience temporary redness and swelling and/or brown debris at the treatment site which should last only a few days. Speak with your provider to discuss other possible side-effects and the necessary post-treatment care.
