Microdermabrasion

Sometimes improving the appearance of your skin doesn’t require the extensive treatment of laser therapy or a chemical peel. Sometimes your skin just needs a thorough resurfacing to unveil a beautiful new layer that hides within. Microdermabrasion uses natural diamond chips and a powerful vacuum to remove the dead skin cells that are causing your aged, unhealthy appearance. Treat wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and much more with a series of Microdermabrasion sessions at the Laser Medical Centre in Toronto.

Microdermabrasion improves your skin’s color, texture and softness to create healthier-looking, blemish-free skin. Regardless of your skin type, Microdermabrasion is an effective option to treat everything from acne scars to sun-damaged skin and help people rediscover the youthful appearance they haven’t enjoyed in years. Consult with a Laser Medical Centre physician to discuss whether Microdermabrasion would be an effective option for you.

Stretch Marks And Scars Removal

Whether you are experiencing scars from an injury or surgery, stretch marks following pregnancy or rapid loss of weight, or virtually any other skin imperfection, the Laser Medical Centre in Toronto provides a skin-enhancing procedure that is right for you. The Laser Medical Centre offers four different procedures designed to eliminate scars and stretch marks and recapture the tighter, more beautiful skin of your younger years.

Our skin goes through a lot during our lifetimes, from the trips and falls of childhood to the stretching that accompanies weight gain and weight loss. The Laser Medical Centre understands the importance that clear, unmarred skin can have on a person’s confidence, and we provide various laser-oriented and other services that help men and women retain their youthful appearance. If you have scars or stretch marks that impact the way you feel about yourself, visit the Laser Medical Centre to learn more about which these four solutions is right for your condition.

Laser Therapy

To the general public, scars and stretch marks are two vastly different skin conditions, but medically they share much in common. Because of that, the Laser Medical Centre of Toronto is able to use state-of-the-art laser technology to treat either. In both cases, a laser beam is transmitted through the skin, where it loosens collagen fibers and releases the tightness that is causing the scar or stretch mark.

Laser therapy can be used to treat scars and stretch marks on nearly any part of the body. The typical treatment lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size and location of the affected area, and patients usually begin to see and feel a noticeable difference after only five or six visits.

Patients often describe the laser procedure as giving a slight “sting” or “pinch,” but pain associated with the procedure is minimal for most. To counter any discomfort, the Laser Medical Centre is one of few medical facilities in the Toronto area to offer the cooling effects of the Zimmer Cryo Chiller. Topical anesthetic creams are also available, but few patients require them. Side-effects associated with laser therapy are few, but few patients do report experiencing a reddening of the skin immediately following a treatment. The Laser Medical Centre also advices patients to avoid direct sunlight following a procedure.

Omnilux Light Therapy

Omnilux Light Therapy is used to treat various skin conditions using a safe light that is ultraviolet-free and radiation-free. The FDA-approved, non-invasive, pain-free procedures are used to effectively eliminate scars and stretch marks, with no downtime and few, if any, side-effects.

Omnilux therapy is available in two forms: Omnilux Blue and Omnilux Red, and it is Omnilux Red that can benefit people wishing to eliminate scars and stretch marks. Omnilux Red rejuvenates the skin and heals scars and pigmentation. A standard treatment session of Omnilux Red lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, and typically patients typically require eight to 10 twice-weekly visits.

Microdermabrasion

Many people with unwanted scars and stretch marks have turned to microdermabrasion to help deep-clean the skin, often coupled with Omnilux Light Therapy, Laser Therapy or OXYjet. Microdermabrasion is an effective way to help eliminate unsightly skin blemishes. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to clean the skin of dead cells that build up on its surface. It is virtually painless and involves no downtime and no side-effects.

Microdermabrasion causes no scarring, bleeding or blistering. In fact, most patients report no side-effects, although skin tightness is common and patients should be cautious of sun exposure following a treatment.

OXYjet

OXYjet treatment uses highly concentrated cleansers and an oxygen-injecting machine to replace lost collagen and elastin and eliminate scars and stretch marks. The procedure helps the skin heal by prompting cell renewal that leaves patients with smoother, clearer skin.

OXYjet involves a thorough cleaning and light exfoliation of the skin, allowing the OXYjet products to penetrate deep into the skin’s pores. After the cleansing product is applied, the OXYjet machine sends bursts of oxygen and other nutrients deep into the skin to promote healing.

Some patients experience slight redness following a treatment, but it typically disappears within hours. Again, patients are cautioned to avoid over-exposure to sunlight after a session. Typically, patients realize visible improvements after one four to six OXYjet treatments.

Acne Treatment

What is Acne and how Acne Treatment can help you?

Skin conditions can affect people of all ages and on any part of their body, but the condition that affects more people than any is acne. Acne, a condition that has disrupted the lives of teenagers for decades, affects more than 85 percent of adolescents and nearly half of all adults. Thankfully, today’s teens have options to clear the condition that weren’t available to generations past.

acne_scheme

acne

Variety of Acne

The Laser Medical Centre in Toronto offers three treatment options to clear embarrassing acne, whether on the face, shoulders, chest, back or arms and legs. Acne is a condition that results from the obstruction of pores, and the subsequent bacterial colonization and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles. High amounts of bacteria – a common occurrence in people going through puberty – prompt the sebaceous glands to produce excess oil. This oil clogs the skin’s pores, trapping bacteria that colonize and form “zits.” In extreme cases, the skin is inflamed, reddened and even damaged to leave lifelong scars.

omnilux

Omnilux Blue™ in action

Relatively new techniques are now available to rid people of frustrating and embarrassing acne conditions. Three treatments are available at the Laser Medical Centre in Toronto, including Omnilux Light Therapy, Microdermabrasion, and OXYjet. See below for details of which procedure is right to help clear your acne condition.

Omnilux Light Therapy

Omnilux Light Therapy is a new, FDA-approved way to treat acne scars and pigmentation using a safe light that is ultraviolet-free and radiation-free. It is used to effectively treat acne on both teens and adults, as well as to remove precancerous lesions and repair sun-damaged skin. Omnilux treatments are non-invasive, quick and painless, leaving patients with no downtime and few, if any, side-effects.

Omnilux therapy is available in two forms: Omnilux Blue and Omnilux Red. Omnilux Blue is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria, while Omnilux Red is used for skin rejuvenation to heal scars and pigmentation associated with acne. Both types of Omnilux are available to people of all ages, and offer comfortable, fast treatments that can help clear acne is as few as eight 20-minute sessions.

A standard treatment session of Omnilux Blue lasts about 20 minutes, and requires only that patients lie comfortably on a bed wearing protective eyewear. Most patients report feeling a slight warming sensation during the treatment.

People suffering from moderate cases of acne can expect to see noticeable results in as few as eight sessions, which are usually administered twice a week for four weeks. Often, patients see a marked improvement after only one or two sessions.

Microdermabrasion

Many acne sufferers have turned to microdermabrasion to help deep-clean the skin, and thus eliminate the acne condition that ensues. Microdermabrasion, a procedure used often by people who don’t suffer from acne but are simply seeking clearer, healthier-looking skin, uses tiny crystals to clean the skin of dead cells that build up on its surface. Microdermabrasion is virtually painless, with no downtime and no side-effects.

In cases of people who suffer from acne, clearing away the layer of dead skin helps eliminate the bacteria trapped beneath. The microdermabrasion procedure is much like a thorough face-cleansing, complete with an exfoliation massage that makes it a popular service at boutique salons and spas. When it’s completed, the crystals are washed from the skin and patients are typically free to resume their normal everyday activities without interruption.

Microdermabrasion causes no scarring, bleeding or blistering. In fact, most patients report no side-effects, although skin tightness is common and patients should be cautious of sun exposure following a treatment. Typically, four to six sessions will leave acne-sufferers with noticeably clearer and healthier-looking skin.

OXYjet

OXYjet treatment combines highly concentrated cleansers with a state-of-the-art oxygen-injecting machine to eradicate acne and acne scars and rejuvenate skin damaged by a severe acne condition. It not only helps get rid of unwanted acne and acne scars, but it helps the skin heal by prompting cell renewal that leaves patients with smoother, clearer skin.

The procedure involves a thorough cleaning and light exfoliation of the skin, allowing the OXYjet products to penetrate deep into the skin’s pores. After the cleansing product is applied, the OXYjet machine sends bursts of oxygen and other nutrients deep into the skin to promote healing.

Some patients experience slight redness following a treatment, but it typically disappears within hours. Again, patients are cautioned to avoid over-exposure to sunlight after a session. Typically, patients realize visible improvements after one four to six OXYjet treatments.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation & Endermology FAQ

How does Electrical Muscle Stimulation work?

EMS is used primarily to prevent muscle atrophy, often as a post-surgical treatment for patients following an injury or illness. Muscle atrophy is the weakening of under-used muscles. EMS sends an electrical pulse to stimulate the nerves, prompting those under-used muscles to expand and contract and prevent the onset of atrophy.

How does EMS lead to weight loss?

During an EMS treatment, blood circulation is increased, metabolism speeds up, and fat is burned. When muscles expand and contract as a result of the electrical stimulation, they experience many of the same benefits provided by typical exercise. By stimulating under-used muscles, EMS helps prevent your body from becoming saggy and flabby, and increases muscle tone to create a healthier, firmer appearance.

Who uses EMS?

Athletes and body-builders use EMS as a supplement to strength training. It increases muscle tone and endurance and leads to a loss of fatty tissue due to the increase in blood circulation that is created. EMS is also widely used for people following surgical procedures, during times when they are restricted from getting out and exercising as they normally do. EMS is used to keep muscles toned during the period of inactivity until the patient has healed enough to resume a standard exercise regimen.

Is Endermology painful?

No, it is a pain-free procedure.

Weight loss Toronto

How long does an EMS treatment take?

The typical EMS treatment lasts roughly 30 minutes.

What is Endermology?

Endermology is a painless, patented procedure that draws up skin, folds it, rolls it, and massages the underlying fatty tissue to break up cellulite and stimulate circulation. This increase in blood flow provides the tissue with fresh oxygen and nutrients, and flushes away excess water, fat and cell wastes. The result is drastically reduced amounts of cellulite and tighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin.

Hair Loss Solution

Hair loss has become an accepted part of aging, but with advanced medicinal products and state-of-the-art equipment and technology, common baldness can be a thing of the past. Learn how at Laser Essential & Skin Care clinic in Toronto can stimulate your hair follicles and help you recapture a full, healthy, natural head of hair.

Common baldness – or Androgenetic Alopecia – typically refers to male- or female-pattern baldness, a genetic condition that leaves hair follicles unable to replace other hairs that have naturally fallen out. The condition typically affects more men, often causing a receding hairline or baldness on the top of the head. Women who experience female-pattern baldness often experience thinning hair over the entire scalp.

hair_biology

The Laser Essential & Skin Care clinic uses specially formulated products to treat the hair follicle roots that have been damaged by factors such as illness, surgery, medication, fungal infection, Lupus disease, diabetes, hormonal problems, improper hair care or genetics. Our technologically advanced equipment helps us get the medicinal products deep into your skin, where they can stimulate the hair follicle cycle to resume as normal. Hair follicles typically remain in place for two to three months before they fall out, at which point the production of new follicles begins. Typically, a person loses 50 to 150 hair follicles every day, but those hairs are replaced. In people suffering from male- or female-pattern baldness, hair replacement is slowed or newly grown hairs are thinner and shorter than the follicles they’re replacing.

Consult with a Laser Essential & Skin Care specialist to discuss specifics of your hair-loss solution and learn more about how advances in medicine can put the days of receding hair lines and thinning hair behind you for good.

Hair Removal FAQ

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal treatments send highly controlled pulses of laser light to the root of each hair follicle just below the surface of the skin. The light is absorbed, heating and destroying the follicle root, preventing the hair from growing back. No damage is done to the tissue surrounding the hair follicles.

hair_removal_img1

Before Treatment:

Parameters are set to ensure effective hair removal skin safety

hair_removal_img2

During Treatment:

Pigment in hair shaft absorbs the light. The resulting heat damage each follicle.

hair_removal_img3

After Treatment:

Damaged hairs are eliminated with excellent long-term results

Why are multiple treatments required?

Every hair follicle goes through three different stages during its lifecycle. Because hair is most vulnerable to laser hair removal treatment during only one of those stages, several rounds of treatment are typically required to completely destroy each follicle.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Prior to treatment, hair above the surface of the skin is removed, leaving the laser treatment to target only the follicle roots below the surface. Each pulse of laser light is accompanied by a slight sting or pinch. Topical anesthetics are available, but most patients do not require them. To help patients manage the slight twinges of discomfort, Laser Medical Centre offers the cooling effects of our Synercool Cryotherapy system, which blows a steady stream of cool air onto the area being treated making the procedure more comfortable . We are one of a few clinics in Toronto that uses the Zimmer Cryo Chiller technology, and we offer it to patients free of charge.

Can laser hair removal treat all kinds of hair?

Yes. The lasers used at Laser Medical Centre are state-of-the-art, and allow us to customize each treatment based on a patient’s hair color, texture and body location. Any hair with at even the smallest amount of pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blonde) can be treated effectively.

Is laser hair removal safe for people of all skin types?

At Laser Medical Centre, we are able to treat most hair type effectively even the finer hair. However, laser hair removal will not be effective on red, blonde, white and gray hair due to laser recognition as non pigment.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

Side effects, although rare, may include slight reddening or swelling on the treated skin. Even less common is blistering or bruising. In nearly all cases where these symptoms are present, the condition typically disappears within hours. Patients may notice that skin becomes slightly lighter or darker following a treatment, but generally a person’s normal pigment returns within a few weeks. To minimize the risk of these side effects occurring, Laser Medical Centre encourages patients to limit their exposure to sunlight before and after treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies for each patient, and depends on a variety of factors including hair type, skin type and the stage of hair follicles being targeted. Typically, five to seven treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results of completely eliminating unwanted hair.

Will I be restricted from activities such as work following a laser hair removal treatment?

Typically, no. Patients can generally return to work immediately or resume all regular activities following a treatment, although Laser Medical Centre does encourage patients to avoid direct sunlight in the days following a treatment.

What kind of lasers does Laser Medical Centre use?
