Sun exposure and aging can wreak havoc on your skin over time, leading to irregular texture and discoloration. Your skin may also carry signs of previous acne breakouts and other skin stressors. To correct these problems and rejuvenate the skin, we offer a wide range of affordable, non-invasive laser resurfacing options.
We use laser resurfacing to treat:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin texture
- Scars and stretch marks
Adults of all ages and skin types can benefit for laser treatments at our Toronto office. After laser resurfacing, you’ll have brighter, smoother and younger looking skin. View the most common laser resurfacing questions below and then contact us to learn more about laser resurfacing in Toronto.
How does laser resurfacing work?
Performed in our office, laser treatments can usually be finished in one hour. We numb the treatment area for comfort and then deliver laser energy pulses to the skin, which penetrate through the outer layers. The treatment removes damaged skin cells to stimulate the healing process and new cell growth.
What happens after laser resurfacing in Toronto & Oshawa, ON?
You may need a friend or family member to help you get home after the laser treatment. The post-treatment period will vary depending on the strength of your laser treatment. If you’ve had an ablative laser treatment, we’ll apply a dressing to your skin which will remain for at least 24 hours. You’ll have a home care routine that involves ointment to aid the healing process.
It’s normal for the skin to be pink for a week or two, and a crust will form as your skin heals. When the healing process is complete, rejuvenated skin will emerge and you’ll begin to appreciate the results.
Does laser resurfacing have side effects?
Risks vary with each level of treatment. Known risks of laser treatment include swelling, extended redness, skin irritation, abnormal healing and scarring. During your consultation at our Toronto office, we will review risks and benefits of laser treatment, so you can make an educated decision.
