About Skin Resurfacing

The health and appearance of your skin can dramatically change the way you look and can even effect your appeared age.

It’s no wonder why so many invest in the latest of skincare and aesthetic procedures in order to achieve the skin of their dreams. While medical grade skincare is a necessity when it comes to anti-aging, it cannot achieve all the results you may be looking for on its own. With a ceased production of collagen, we must do something to triggers the body’s ability to restore collagen in order to maintain a youthful look.

How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?

Regardless of which treatment option you choose with your aesthetic provider, the main goal of skin resurfacing is to stimulate collagen production so that the quality of your skin can improve to its more youthful state.

At MaVie Med Spa, we use four world-class types of equipment for the ultimate skin resurfacing. These include Icon Fractional laser, PicoSure laser, SkinPen, and Morpheus8.

The primary purpose of skin resurfacing is to stimulate collagen and promote cellular turnover for healthier, younger looking skin. Since collagen production is a natural process, it can take several months to see optimal results of your skin resurfacing treatment.

Icon™ Fractional Laser

This device can be used for correcting a broad spectrum of skin issues, including pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. The Icon™ aesthetic system provides multiple features including hair removal, spider vein clearance of the face and body, body pigmentation and facial rejuvenation. The device comprises seven headpieces, each of which is engineered for a specific purpose and skin condition. Two stars of the Icon include a state-of-the-art IPL and fractional laser for skin resurfacing and pigmentation.

It also has Skintel™, which is the only live melanin reader available today. What does this mean? Using Skintel™, our aesthetic providers can dial in a reading of how much melanin/pigmentation is in the skin. This provides a safety mechanism to your treatment unlike other IPL devices. With our primary goal of optimal results and safety, we are confident in using Icon to achieve the results you desire.
