Skin Care Q & A

What skin care issues can I have treated?

A number of skin care complaints are effectively addressed by Dr. Volpe at Glow Aesthetics. These include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Irregular skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage

The Icon system provides laser treatment and photorejuvenation to enhance your complexion, making you look younger and healthier. Most skin types can be treated with a variety of laser and photorejuvenation therapies.

How does the Icon laser reduce lines and wrinkles?

In just one treatment, the Icon laser delivers energy deep below the surface of the skin to encourage tissue regeneration. In as few as four days, your skin is rejuvenated without the invasiveness of surgery. Your skin feels smoother and looks less lined and creased, but you still look natural and like yourself.

What is skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing with the Icon laser helps revitalize your entire complexion’s texture and tone. The energy from the fractional laser stimulates your deeper layers of skin to generate new tissue and create new collagen and elastin, which are skin-strengthening compounds This newer, healthier skin replaces the older-looking, flawed skin to improve the appearance of scars, dullness, and dark spots.

With skin resurfacing, a series of treatments is usually recommended. At each session, one or more of your complexion complaints may be addressed. Dr. Volpe takes into consideration your aesthetic goals and current health of your skin when creating your treatment plan.

What is photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation involves using the Icon laser’s Optimized Light™ technology. This involves gentle pulses of light that target areas of unwanted pigmentation and facial vessels. Issues you may have treated with photorejuvenation include:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea
  • Visible capillaries

More than one treatment may be required to get the excellent results you’re after. Dr. Volpe can help you understand if photo rejuvenation is the right therapy for you.
