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.
