Risks with Facial Skin Resurfacing
When a person begins to look in the mirror each day and see the inevitable evidence of aging, they can either panic or research what their options are.
People are now interested in looking their best at every age and, more than any previous generation, are investigating what alternatives facial cosmetic clinics can offer them. Dr. Cory Torgerson’s private laser centre in downtown Toronto offers clients much more than traditional cosmetic treatments. Alongside plastic surgery, Dr. Torgerson’s cosmetic clinic offers the best in non-surgical treatments, from Botox and injectable fillers to ultherapy and laser skin resurfacing – all effective tools in stalling the aging process.
Before And After Guidelines That Should Be Followed
Dr. Torgerson’s Laser Clinic
The task of deciding what facial cosmetic treatment would best suit your needs can be daunting now that there are so many choices. The perfect place to start is to book a private appointment at Dr. Torgerson’s laser clinic so that you can collaborate with him and come up with a plan of action that suits your budget, lifestyle, and aging concerns. With any surgery or facial cosmetic treatment, there are risks that must be discussed. That is why we recommend choosing an experienced, licenced professional like Dr. Torgerson as well as a facility that has been inspected. His facial cosmetic clinic has attained the highest level of certification offered by the CPSO. Because of this, any fears regarding the risk of cosmetic laser treatments will be immediately alleviated.
If you choose to pursue facial skin resurfacing, there are some before and after guidelines that should be followed in order to minimize risks. Prior to treatment, a client should stop smoking for several weeks, avoid the sun, and avoid supplements such as aspirin or ibuprofen. It must be mentioned that it is also important to follow the laser centre’s prescribed, after-care instructions in order to negate risks.
Gain The Incredible Benefits That Facial Skin Resurfacing Has To Offer You
Excellent Safety Record
When laser skin therapy was first offered (approximately 40 years ago), there was potential for facial burns, facial scarring, and unevenness in the treatment, which resulted in hypopigmentation, and finally, the potential for infection. The equipment that was used a generation ago looks archaic compared to the state-of-the-art, advanced instruments that are used today. Great improvements have been made in the science of laser technology as well. The depth of laser treatment, variations in laser beam pulses, and the types of light used in laser treatments have all advanced, making risks less and less likely. As a result, laser skin resurfacing now has an excellent safety record with decreased side effects. This type of therapy has soared in popularity over the last decade, which is evidence not only of its safety record, but also of the excellent results laser treatments can produce.
People concerned about aging lines and wrinkles are jumping on the laser bandwagon, and so are people concerned with complexion problems such as sun damage, rosacea, acne scarring, and uneven pigmentation. By following guidelines and trusting the expertise at a professional Toronto laser clinic, you too can gain the incredible benefits that facial skin resurfacing has to offer you!
