Laser treatments provide a non-invasive solution to a wide variety of cosmetic concerns on the body, including unwanted fat deposits, stretch marks, birthmarks, varicose veins, surgical scars, skin discoloration, and even excessive hair growth. For these procedures, a medical-grade laser device is used to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to target damaged or deficient tissues.
There are two FDA-approved laser treatments for these specific body concerns: Palomar Icon™ XD is utilized for laser hair removal and treating skin deficiencies, while SculpSure™ delivers non-invasive fat removal and can be used on parts of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
As we age and undergo various bodily changes, the skin on our bodies accumulates all types of imperfections and blemishes—which are often permanent. Cosmetic laser treatments like the Palomar Icon™ XD can effectively address such issues, but without the invasive surgery and prolonged downtime. In addition to skin issues, laser procedures like the SculpSure™ can help you get rid of stubborn fats that are unresponsive to diet and exercise Body laser treatments are ideal for the following issues:
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Skin lesions or discoloration
- Varicose veins
- Excess body fat
What Are The Benefits?
Laser treatments are preferable to surgical procedures as they are non-invasive, virtually painless, and entail shorter downtime and recovery. They can also be done repeatedly (unlike surgery) to further improve results.

During your pre-treatment consultation, Dr. Sedgh will listen as you discuss your cosmetic concerns and expected outcome from the procedure. This will give him a better understanding of your goals, and from there he will discuss your options, explain the details of your desired treatment, and describe what results you can expect.
After a thorough evaluation of your skin issues or body fat levels, Dr. Sedgh will recommend the ideal number of sessions for your needs. While laser procedures like Palomar Icon™ XD and SculpSure™ are highly effective and yield great results with just one session, some patients may require several treatments to achieve the best outcome. Your first consultation will consist of the following:
- Interview on medical history and relevant lifestyle factors
- Comprehensive physical examination
- Discussion of the treatment and number of sessions needed
If you are unable to come in for an in-office meeting, Dr. Sedgh also offers virtual consultations vide video conferencing.
Laser body treatments are performed as outpatient procedures and entail little to no downtime. Since they are non-invasive in nature, patients are usually able to resume their daily activities on the same day of the session. The exact side effects you can expect will depend on the treatment. These may include mild swelling, redness, dry patches, or soreness, but these should gradually fade within the following days.
With the Palomar Icon™ XD, results should become apparent within 2-3 weeks. Meanwhile, patients should see more gradual results with SculpSure™ body contouring, as the melted fat deposits will be naturally eliminated from the body over the next 6-12 weeks.
In order to ensure the best outcome, Dr. Sedgh will take the time to personally monitor your post-treatment progress and assess your response to the laser treatment. This will allow him to determine whether additional sessions are needed to achieve the desired skin smoothing or body contouring results.
Comfort & Transparency From Start To Finish
When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical. His approach to facial enhancement is to achieve a refreshed, natural look – with transparency, honesty, and the highest level of ethical treatment, from start to finish.
