Dr. Alexander Golger and his medical team at Avenue Plastic Surgery are dedicated to helping women and men seeking cosmetic surgery in Toronto realize their aesthetic goals. To address the diverse cosmetic needs of his patients, Dr. Golger offers a range of surgical and non-surgical facial enhancement procedures. He is particularly excited to offer several skin resurfacing treatments that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, lighten dark spots, and add a youthful glow to the face. Read on to learn about laser skin resurfacing and chemical peel in Toronto.
Laser skin resurfacing is a sophisticated treatment that uses laser energy to gently remove the outer layers of skin and reveal the fresh skin underneath. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and improves the skin tone. Laser skin resurfacing can also be used to treat scars and facial pigmentation.
Chemical peel skin resurfacing works by causing the outer layer of skin to peel off over time. As a result, the damaged outer cells are removed and beautiful, new skin is revealed. You might be a Toronto chemical peel candidate if you wish to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the prominence of age spots, or minimize the signs of sun damage caused by overexposure to sunlight or tanning booths.
As with all other facial rejuvenation patients, Toronto skin resurfacing candidates should be in good overall health. Because smoking can interfere with treatment results, nonsmokers are the best candidates. Dr. Golger personally meets with all of his patients prior to their treatments to discuss the details of their procedures and answer their questions. In addition, Dr. Golger encourages his patients to voice any concerns so that he can address their worries and help them feel at ease and well taken care of.
Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peel are non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. However, they might require some downtime as they might cause temporary swelling and peeling. The extent of downtime depends on the precise nature of the treatment and the strength of the chemical peel used. Dr. Golger will explain exactly what to expect during the recovery period so that you are completely prepared. In addition, he closely monitors his Toronto skin resurfacing patients during the healing period to help ensure a smooth, quick recovery.
The results of skin resurfacing become apparent within a few weeks as the new skin is revealed. Depending on the skin condition and the extent of damage, a series of treatments might be needed to achieve the best possible results. Upon the completion of the treatment course, the skin will look smoother, more even and radiant. The results of skin resurfacing are long-lasting. However, follow-up treatments might be needed to maintain and extend the beautiful effects of the procedure.
Dr. Alexander Golger invites you to schedule a personal consultation and discuss all of your skin rejuvenation needs and desires. During your appointment, he will perform a thorough evaluation of your skin and bone structure and recommend the most appropriate procedures. In addition, he will answer any questions you might have about other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as injections of Juvederm and Botox in Toronto.
