Heba Farag, MD, FACOG, at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center in Mission Viejo, California, offers skin revitalization with the Icon™ and Alma® lasers to enhance your natural beauty and restore your look. To schedule a consultation, call the office today to request an appointment.
Restoring your youthful appearance is easier than ever, thanks to advances in aesthetic technology. The laser skin revitalization treatments available at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center can dramatically improve the appearance of your scars and stretch marks, as well as erase the changes in skin tone caused by spending too much time in the sun.
Dr. Farag uses one of two advanced skin lasers, including the Icon or Alma laser, to improve the look and health of your skin. The energy produced by these lasers extends deep into the surface of your skin and tricks your skin into thinking it’s been injured. Then, your body’s natural healing process kicks into gear and creates new, healthy tissue to replace the affected areas, resulting in healthier, younger skin without causing any damage to the non-treated areas.
Skin revitalization at Orange County Laser and Wellness Center takes an hour or less, depending on the area being treated and your aesthetic goals. During your skin revitalization treatment, Dr. Farag gently treats the desired area with the most appropriate laser. You may experience some pain and discomfort during your session, but nothing compared to the pain of major surgery.
You may notice some skin redness following your revitalization treatment, but these side effects should disappear quickly. Most people can resume their usual activity following the procedure. However, depending on your aesthetic goals, if more aggressive treatment was provided, it may take a few days for your skin to heal.
Dr. Farag provides you with your treatment plan before you get started, so you know what to expect and how best to prepare.
After treatment, she recommends you avoid direct exposure to the sun for at least 48 hours and avoid hot water to the treatment area until your inflammation has subsided. She also suggests you avoid any strenuous activity that may cause you to sweat for at least 24 hours following your session.
