What Is Skin Resurfacing?

Healthier Looking Skin

Often, aging, acne, and too much exposure to the sun can leave the complexion blotchy, scarred, wrinkled, and discoloured. With laser skin resurfacing in Toronto and Whitby, these flaws can be smoothed and faded to restore younger, healthier-looking skin. Although skin resurfacing cannot produce perfect skin, it is able to dramatically improve appearance and texture. With laser skin resurfacing in Toronto and Whitby, we can treat several skin issues including:

  • Wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Rough skin texture
  • Stretch marks and scars
  • Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration

Hyperpigmentation describes a condition where the skin becomes abnormally dark in one area and contrasts with the lightness of the surrounding, unaffected skin.

This discolouration can differ in size, ranging from tiny dot-like freckles to large patches called melasma. Hyperpigmentation results from an over-production of melanin in the skin. Naturally, our skin cells or melanocytes produce melanin when absorbing ultraviolet rays from sun exposure. Melanin darkens the skin to help protect your body from the dangers of ultraviolet rays. Areas of the skin that have too many melanocytes or contain too much melanin will darken. Although this is harmless, many individuals can view hyperpigmentation as undesirable. Hyperpigmentation is especially common in people who have fair skin.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

In Toronto and Whitby, laser skin resurfacing works by gently removing single layers of skin cells with precision accuracy. This stimulates the production of new skin cells that provide the skin with a lighter, tighter and younger-looking appearance.

At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we offer laser skin resurfacing, either separate or in conjunction with other cosmetic rejuvenation procedures. One laser treatment session can typically be completed within an hour.

First, we numb the target area with an anesthetic cream to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. Then, we deliver pulses of laser energy to the skin which penetrates the outer layers. The laser pulses remove damaged skin cells, stimulates the healing process and production of new skin cells.

How to prepare for laser resurfacing

To begin your self-improvement with Toronto laser skin resurfacing, start by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Golger or Dr. Romy at our clinic. At this initial meeting, we can determine that you are a good candidate and laser skin resurfacing can help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Once you choose to undergo laser skin resurfacing, we will ask you to stop taking any medications or supplements, like aspirin or vitamin E, approximately ten days before your procedure. These medications and supplements can affect blood clotting. You will also need to stop smoking since chemicals in cigarettes can interfere with circulation and healing.

If you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters, we may prescribe an antibiotic medication or antiviral medication beforehand.
