A noninvasive facelift is a method of improving the quality and tightness of your skin so that you get a more uplifted, youthful look without surgery or needles. Dr. Dyce uses the Icon laser to initiate a process called collagen remodeling that makes your skin stronger and more resilient.
When you’re young, your skin is thick, firm, and filled with long strands of the protein, collagen, which forms a matrix that supports your skin. Your skin is also rich with the elasticizing protein, elastin, which is why youthful skin snaps back into place after being pulled or pinched.
The sun and aging deplete your stores of collagen and elastin and also robs your skin of plumping fat. It’s almost like someone let the “air” out of your balloon. Your skin doesn’t have the support or elasticity it used to have, so it droops and sags.
The Icon improves the quality of your skin by targeting its deepest layers. The heat from the laser’s energy starts a process in which your skin gets rid of old collagen and elastin that isn’t doing its job properly and starts producing fresh, strong collagen and elastin. These new proteins build your skin back up from the inside out.
As your collagen-remodeling process continues, wrinkles and lines smooth out. Your firmer, plumper skin also tightens, creating a mini facelift that undoes unflattering sags and droops.
Your Icon laser facelift only takes about half an hour. You can have your treatment during your lunch hour and then go straight back to work or other activities.
After your Icon treatment, your skin looks glowing and healthful. However, your benefits have only begun. Over the next six to nine months, your face gets tighter and firmer as the collagen-remodeling pro cess rebuilds the structure of your skin.
Dr. Dyce keeps you as comfortable as possible during your Icon facelift. The Icon has a special cooling system to compensate for the laser’s heat. During your consultation, you discuss whether you might benefit from a local anesthetic, too.
