Vital components of healthy skin diminish naturally over time, and the damage is hastened by ultraviolet radiation and environmental pollutants. As a result, fine lines form, skin thins and loosens, brown spots appear, and skin develops a rough texture. Laser skin treatments offered at Kingsway Dermatology and Cosmetic Centre are ideal for addressing these issues.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can be used to treat brown spots, such as sunspots, age spots, and freckles, helping to rejuvenate your skin. It is most frequently used to treat areas on the face, neck, chest, upper shoulders, arms, and hands.
The laser provides a beam in a very narrow wavelength, considered a broad spectrum but still very intense. That intensity allows it to eliminate damage by penetrating below the surface to stimulate collagen production.
As collagen is a natural protein that gives skin elasticity and strength, new collagen creates a healthier look by adding volume to wrinkled skin and helping reduce acne, rosacea redness, spider veins and large pores.
Fractional laser resurfacing reduces signs of aging and gives your face an overall refreshed and more youthful look. The laser’s high-intensity light passes deep beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in controlled thermal “wounding.” The final result is the formation of new collagen, which will continue over the next several months. This new collagen softens and plumps skin and gradually reducing the appearance of facial lines, pigment and scarring.
Fractional laser sessions can treat all of these cosmetic problems. The rejuvenated collagen production restores a healthy thickness to the skin, refreshes dull patches and evens out irregular tones.
Full Field Laser
Full field laser skin resurfacing procedures can be very successful at reducing or eliminating signs of aging, scars, environmental conditions and sun damage. It also minimizes the appearance of super deep lines that are etched into the skin. At your cosmetic consultation, we will be able to provide an accurate assessment of what we can do based on your budget, time frame and level of readiness.
Treating skin with a full field laser stimulates the growth and reorganization of new collagen, which improves the skin’s thickness and elasticity. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, which will give your skin a younger and refreshed appearance.
