3 Aesthetic Treatments You Don’t Want to Miss out on in 2019

The “new year, new me” mentality is still holding strong for us at La Follette OB-GYN & Aesthetics. If one of your new year’s resolutions is to look and feel your best in 2019, look no further! There’s no better time than now to start your aesthetics and anti-aging regimen or get a helping hand with achieving a slimmed-down physique. At La Follette OB-GYN & Aesthetics, these are 3 of the must-have anti-aging and aesthetic enhancing treatments on the market.

ICON Photofacial

ICON is a revolutionary laser that can reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall texture and complexion of the face. Over time, our skin begins to age. It’s inevitable. There are preventative steps you can take to protect your skin and face from premature aging and sun damage, but, eventually, some signs of aging are guaranteed to show. ICON photofacial can reverse and reduce those signs.

How does ICON photofacial work?

ICON photofacial uses intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatment to reduce the signs of aging. The laser penetrates deep beneath the skin, stimulating the collagen and elastin lying dormant. Once the collagen and elastin are stimulated, they promote new cell growth.

What can ICON photofacial treat?

ICON photofacial is commonly used to reduce the following signs of aging:

  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Moles
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars

ICON photofacial boasts no downtime following the procedure.* Generally, a few treatments are recommended for optimum results. Winter is the ideal time to get ICON treatments as it can’t be performed on tanned skin, and extra layers of protective clothing are inconspicuous during the winter weather when bundling up is key!


As we age, our metabolism slows and weight gain can take place. This is especially true in certain areas of the body that are prone to storing subcutaneous fat cells. SculpSure offers an anti-aging treatment that reduces fat build up on the body and below the chin.

How does SculpSure work?

By using laser energy and transforming it into heat, SculpSure targets, breaks down, and permanently eliminates those pesky stubborn fat cells that are clinging to certain parts of the body.

What areas can SculpSure treat?

SculpSure is commonly used to treat the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Chin
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Flanks

Non-invasive and non-surgical, SculpSure is painless and boasts no downtime.*

Laser Hair Reduction

It’s not a secret. Getting rid of unwanted hair can be tedious and time-consuming. The hours and money spent on waxing treatments and shaving materials are exponential. That’s why we recommend laser hair reduction with ICON as our third anti-aging must-have.

As we age, hair may grow thicker on certain areas of the body. This can be especially true for women as their estrogen depletes as they get older. Laser hair removal can eliminate unwanted hair for good.

Using the ICON laser, we target and destroy unwanted body hair.  The IPL laser breaks down the pigment in the hair and destroys the follicle.

What areas can be treated by ICON for laser hair reduction?

ICON can be used on many different portions of the body. It has been used to reduce hair on the following areas:

  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Chest

Any of these aesthetic treatments are a great way to kick off 2019! For each of these procedures, multiple sessions are typically recommended for optimal results. So, it’s best to start sooner rather than later!
