SKIN RESURFACING uses laser energy for improving skin texture, tone and color. Oahu Dermatology uses the ICON platform which is a fractional non-ablative Erbium laser used to resurface the skin, treat acne and surgical scars, lighten melasma and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The number of treatment sessions vary depending on skin thickness and amount of correction needed. Avoid excessive sun for 1 - 2 weeks before and after treatment. Expect transient pinkness and swelling immediately post-treatment and flaking/brown debris a few days into recovery. A series of 3-5 treatments is recommended for optimal results.
