What Can Help With My Cosmetic Concerns?

How you feel about your looks impacts your self-esteem, and your attitude extends to your emotional health as well — which is also closely connected to your physical health. In short, it’s a package deal. 

And if you have cosmetic issues that bother you and prevent you from living your best life, your overall well-being is certainly impacted.

Dr. Michelle Tomlinson-Phelan and Dr. Catherine Schiano created Central Jersey Family Physicians to address your whole health, no matter your age or whether you’re in need of women’s services or men’s services

We’re also developmental disability experts for families in need of these services, and we offer concierge medicine, an innovative way to deliver care that’s unhurried and thorough. 

At a certain point, we also realized that many of our patients wanted aesthetic services for various concerns, and we’re committed to being as responsive to our patients’ needs as possible.  

A multi-tasking treatment for cosmetic issues 

Dr. Schiano and Dr. Tomlinson-Phelan researched a range of cosmetic treatments, and the Icon™ laser by Cynosure was far and away the best. It’s technologically advanced and safe, and it addresses a multitude of issues, including:

Our team is able to treat many cosmetic concerns because the Icon laser has unrivaled versatility.

How does the Icon laser work?

The technology behind the Icon laser is the power of intense pulsed light (IPL) in many different wavelengths. 

This light can destroy hair follicles permanently, minimize wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of sunspots. Icon laser therapy also successfully treats other annoying cosmetic problems like spider veins and stretch marks. 

The IPL “zaps” the problem, and your body gets rid of any waste material produced by the treatment naturally. 

What’s an Icon laser treatment like?

The Icon laser treatment is more of a spa-like experience than anything else. After you get comfortable, we apply a cool gel to the treatment area and then gently direct the light pulses to your body. We provide protective sunglasses because the light is strong. 

Most of our patients who receive the treatment describe the pulsing sensation as being similar to gently snapping a rubber band against the skin, so it’s virtually painless. 

Treatments are typically under half an hour, and your doctor decides how many are needed, depending on what you’re getting treated for. Icon laser treatment is noninvasive, which means that zero post-treatment downtime is required. 

To really get an idea of how revolutionary this treatment is, take a look at our “before and after” gallery — it’s nothing short of amazing!

Icon laser treatments bring noticeable, lasting results

We always love to see our patients’ reactions to their treatment results. Imagine feeling liberated from your spider veins, stretch marks, and hair in all the wrong places. 

And if you dream of looking refreshed instead of “tired,” this treatment sweeps the ravages of time and the elements away!
