Looking for Laser Resurfacing in Toronto, Barrie or Newmarket? Learn how Laser Resurfacing Works!

The process of laser resurfacing works by directing short concentrated beams of light at the skin. With deft precision, technicians at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre perform laser resurfacing in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket to remove irregular skin cells layer by layer at the surface level. Here are three types of skin resurfacing treatments offered at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket:

  • Fractora - It is a fractional skin resurfacing and subdermal tissue coagulation device, which bridges the gap between fractional lasers and surgical procedures. It is used on active cystic acne and scars.
  • Microneedling - Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is an automated microneedling procedure which uses tiny micro-point needles to press against the skin while simultaneously gliding, thus creating thousands of tiny holes in the top layer of the skin. This is done to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and to treat various scars, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
  • PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma therapy rejuvenates the skin by infusing your own blood plasma under your dermis. This is done to stimulate cell growth and collagen production. It improves complexion and texture, and restores lost facial volume.

 

 

Who Is a Good Candidate in Toronto, Barrie or Newmarket for Laser Resurfacing at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre?

Laser resurfacing at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket is a good choice for those seeking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, or forehead as well as those who have shallow scars left behind by acne or surgery. Individuals with very severe acne or very dark skin may not see the results they want from laser resurfacing. Furthermore, laser resurfacing is not recommended for stretch marks. No matter what you want to use laser resurfacing for, be sure to talk to a doctor about whether or not it’s right for you.

What to Expect from Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre’s Laser Resurfacing in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket?

The entire procedure is handled as an outpatient appointment. If you only plan on having small areas treated, then a local anesthetic may be used. If you are having your whole face treated, general anesthesia will be administered. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to treat a specific area of the face while it may take up to 2 full hours if you are having your whole face treated by laser resurfacing.

 

Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket will provide aftercare instructions for how to handle the treated area at home. Essentially, the treated area will be bandaged and you will be allowed to clean it after 24 hours. It is recommended that you clean the area several times a day and apply ointment to keep the area from scabbing. In general, healing time can take anywhere from 10 to 21 days. Swelling will occur.

Preparing for Laser Resurfacing at Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre in Toronto, Barrie & Newmarket: There are a few things to take care of before getting laser resurfacing:

  1. Visit your doctor and get an opinion from either a plastic surgeon or dermatologist about whether or not you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing.
  2. Make sure to keep track of any cold sores or fever blisters you get in your mouth because laser skin resurfacing can trigger breakouts.
  3. Avoid taking medicines or supplements that can cause blood clotting like aspirin or ibuprofen or vitamin E. It’s recommended that you stay off these medications for 10 days before you get laser resurfacing.
  4. For smokers, stop smoking for two weeks before and after the procedure as smoking can prolong the healing process.
  5. Lastly, see if you should be prescribed any antibiotics before the procedure to deter bacterial infections. Antiviral medication can help prevent cold sores and fever blisters.

How does it work?

With a unique combination of leading-edge technologies, our light-based treatments target all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of youthful looking skin.
