Dr. Torgerson’s Facial Cosmetic Clinic in Toronto offers the most advanced laser technology to provide various skin revitalizing treatments with the highest degree of precision. Our advanced laser technology is a safe and effective way to restore the quality and texture of your skin, resulting in a youthful and radiant glow. Whether you are seeking the benefits of skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, or skin resurfacing, our Laser clinic has the perfect non-surgical treatment option for you.
Dr. Torgerson is a top Facial Plastic surgeon, which means that his expertise, experience, and skill is solely dedicated to the Head and Neck. Dr. Torgerson has achieved the highest degree of specialty training in his field and has accrued years of experience and knowledge here in Toronto. We believe that a top expert should be performing treatments on the head and neck. Therefore, our laser clinic staff is superiorly trained and educated in their respective areas and is responsible to Dr. Torgerson.
Our clinic offers both ablative and non-ablative laser technology. We have both CO2 and Erbium lasers with the most current advancements in the industry. Our laser services cover a wide range of treatments: sun spots and damage, moles, collagen stimulation, skin renewal, pigmentation irregularities, spider veins, skin texture, skin tone, skin quality, acne scarring, and anti-aging skin tightening.
Dr. Torgerson offers a 30-minute free consultation for you to discover which laser treatment would be most effective for your area of concern. Depending on the laser treatment, you may even be able to proceed with the non-surgical treatment on the same day.
Laser treatments can be purchased as single treatments. However, most will provide superior results when purchased in a packaged series of treatments. They also end up being more cost-effective in the long run if a package is purchased, as the treatments can be used at anytime in the future and do not expire.
The level of discomfort differs depending on the type of laser treatment decided upon, the area being treated, and the patient’s sensitivity. The Clearlift laser produces absolutely no pain, whereas others like the CO2 laser require effective pain-reducers to be used. No matter what laser treatment is chosen, our laser clinic is committed to your comfort. All options and preferences can be recommended and discussed prior to treatment.
Typically, most laser procedures require 1 to 3 days of downtime, depending on your comfort level with heading back into public after a treatment. However, we do offer the revolutionary Clearlift Q-Switch laser, which requires absolutely no downtime!
Most laser treatments will also result in short-term redness, swelling, and/ or sensitivity. The wonderful thing is that with the current technology available, the side effects are significantly less than what they traditionally were even just a few short years ago!
Other factors to consider if you’re thinking about a Skin Laser Treatment
Although no specific complications are anticipated, as a precaution, we prefer not to treat pregnant women.
Patients should postpone non-surgical laser treatments if there are active cold sores or infection in the area(s) to be treated.
Recent tanning, either natural or artificial, can interfere with some laser treatments; therefore, treatment should be postponed until the tan has faded. Please check with our medical personnel if you have questions.
Keloid scarring, connective tissue disease, immunosuppression or auto-immune disorders, vitiligo, or uncontrolled diabetes may be contraindications for laser treatments. Your suitability for treatment will be assessed at your initial consultation.
Try not to wear any makeup to your laser appointment. However, if you forget, we’ll be happy to cleanse your skin for you!
Avoid any irritants and exfoliants to your skin such as any products containing retin-A, retinol, benzolyl peroxide, glycolye/ salicylic acids, or astringents for 1 week before your treatment.
