Vein & Other Laser Treatments
We offer several laser treatment options at our Mississauga practice for women and men who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, red spots, veins, or acne scars. Laser treatments are an effective, non-surgical way to improve the tone and texture of skin on the face and body.
To learn more about other laser treatments, call our office at 905-273-3045 (Mississauga) or 416-207-9090 (Toronto) or request an appointment online. We look forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Fine lines and wrinkles may respond to treatment with the Cynosure IPL Laser, which promotes tightening of the skin as it stimulates collagen production. Lines and wrinkles can also be treated at our downtown Toronto centre with Pixel, a fractionated Erbium laser that targets water in the superficial layers of the skin. This is particularly useful for skin around the eyes. Some topical or oral medication or mild sedation may be necessary. The skin may be red afterward for a couple of weeks, and sunscreen must be worn for 6 months.
A Better Laser Treatment
We can provide our patients with the following benefits:
- Technology – At our practice, we use some of the latest laser devices offering versatile laser options to treat a variety of problems in a wide range of skin types.
- Safety – Our laser treatments are performed by highly trained medical aestheticians and registered nurses.
- Comfort – The lasers used at our practice target specific areas of the skin to minimize damage to surrounding areas.
For our vein treatment patients from Mississauga and Toronto, the Nd Yag laser is quite efficient at treating unsightly superficial leg veins. Small spider veins may disappear after only one treatment, though repeat treatment occasionally is necessary. Treatment takes about 30 minutes, and patients may experience minor stinging. There may be some small amount of bruising after the treatment; however, this usually subsides shortly after patients leave the office.
Our Nd Yag Laser is ideal for treating red spots on the face, which are often due to single enlarged blood vessels, or cherry hemangiomas, which are clusters of blood vessels. This is an ideal treatment for individuals with noticeable blood vessels around the nose. The spots will often be dramatically reduced or disappear after one treatment. There may be brief stinging during the procedure. Occasionally patients may experience bruising.
Acne Scars and Other Kinds of Scarring
Acne scars which are red can be treated with the Nd Yag Laser. However "hill and valley" type acne scarring is best treated with the Pixel, a fractionated Erbium Laser available at the downtown Toronto office.
