What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser Skin Resurfacing (LSR) can enhance the skin in multiple ways and is considered one of the most effective laser treatments today. With just a few treatment sessions, the procedure can reduce and potentially remove scars, age spots, blemishes, and facial wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. The promise of noticeable results with minimal downtime and lower procedure cost is spurring interest in fractional methods of skin rejuvenation. Patients are increasingly requesting these treatments to improve their appearance.

Sublative™ fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology places the heat energy effectively into the upper dermis where it can produce a significant increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal disruption. By utilizing RF Sublation – fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology – heat energy is effectively placed into the dermis where it can produce significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.

The ergonomic Sublative™ applicator delivers bipolar radio frequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound-healing response. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and more elastic.

Some of the common conditions that Sublative treatments can treat include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Textural irregularities
  • Tone
  • Superficial skin lesions

Who are the best candidates for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

One of the major benefits of Toronto Laser Skin Resurfacing is that it can treat a diverse number of skin types and conditions. The best candidates are those who come in with realistic expectations, are in overall good health, maintain a positive attitude throughout the treatments, and are committed to a good skincare routine. This is undoubtedly a treatment perfect for you if you are trying to obtain clearer, younger-looking skin or want to minimize the appearance of skin damage or wrinkles. It can repair the damage to your skin caused by numerous occurrences, much like the ones below.

  • Acne or other facial scars
  • Brown spots or blotchy skin coloring
  • Certain benign skin growths
  • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids and deep crows feet
  • Vertical wrinkles around the mouth
  • Wrinkled or sun-damaged skin on the face

Unfortunately, Laser skin resurfacing isn’t suggested if you have very dark skin tones or active acne outbreaks. In addition, it is important to be aware that there is a recovery period needed after laser therapy. Some patients, depending on their skin condition, may require up to two or three weeks to recover.

It’s about you
What’s the first step?

The first step to getting Laser Skin Resurfacing in Toronto is to contact us either by phone or by filling out a contact form on our website. When you come into our office for your consultation, your provider will be able to answer any questions you may have, provide more information on the treatment, and give you our expert recommendations to achieve your aesthetic goals.

You will be asked some specific questions about your skin regime, medications, and allergic reactions. Please be upfront with us, as the questions are all designed to help ensure we can provide a safe and effective treatment for your needs.

If you want to move forward with the treatment, we will create your treatment plan and our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule your first session, as well as provide you with certain instructions to follow to achieve optimal results.

What to expect on the day of a Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment

When you arrive on the day of your Laser Skin Resurfacing, our primary focus will be your comfort. Our Aesthetic team will be on hand to answer any questions and assist in the process. Before the treatment, we will completely clean your skin with a cleanser to remove any lotions, makeup, or other substances found on the skin. This ensures that the LSR treatment can achieve the best results possible.

The first step is to globally treat the skin you want to be addressed, which is commonly located around the face, neck, or chest. The second step addresses more specific skin concerns and will vary from patient to patient (ex. spider veins, redness, acne, or dark spots of hyperpigmentation).

We start the process by using the device that emits the laser pulses and directs them at the targeted skin area. The laser then penetrates the external layer of the skin while simultaneously heating the underlying skin. This promotes deep healing, thus resulting in rapid collagen growth.

Depending on the size of the affected area, treatments of Laser Skin Resurfacing will typically take between 15 and 40 minutes.

Laser Skin Resurfacing recovery

After your treatments, you may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours after treatment. The skin may often have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. You will be able to return to your normal schedule immediately after you receive your treatment, but you will need to try and stay out of the sun as best as possible. If you do plan on being exposed to UV rays in any form, we strongly recommend using a good SPF to prevent any unfavorable results.

Many people notice positive changes in the appearance of their skin within a few days but keep in mind that you may require multiple sessions before you see your final results. Most laser-treated regions will be fully healed six to nine days after the laser treatment.
