New laser skin resurfacing procedures provided by leading dermatologists enable women to optimize their beauty while also addressing signs of aging.

Aging affects us all — the way we act, the way we feel, and definitely the way we look. But with advancements in skin care, you can have a say in the way aging affects your skin, and maybe even get back to the way you looked not so long ago.

One such advancement is laser resurfacing, commonly used to help treat wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, blemishes, stretch marks, scars, sun damage, and hyper-pigmentation. It’s a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes an intense light beam to combat the effects of aging.

“These new, gentler lasers produce much more natural results with a lot less patient downtime, and are also able to treat areas of the body other than the face,” says Dr. Mark Lupin, a world-renowned dermatologist and sought-after lecturer in the field of non-surgical facial rejuvenation. “Not only do the beneficial effects of these skin treatments include higher self-esteem and inner confidence, they also help take care of the skin, ensuring we have healthy, beautiful skin moving forward.”

When meeting a new patient, Dr. Lupin’s approach is to look at the whole picture and recommend the best course of treatment. Depending on your age, degree of sun damage and health and environmental factors, a combination of non-invasive and clinically proven treatments can be used to enhance and restore a natural and more youthful appearance.

This may include radiofrequency therapies such as Thermage, which causes no swelling or bruising and lasts up to 22 months per treatment; gentle, 15-minute, no-downtime Clear + Brilliant laser skin care treatments; or revolutionary fractional laser treatments such as Fraxel.

“Fraxel and Clear + Brilliant both improve the health and beauty of the skin without breaking the surface, meaning people can heal much more quickly and can even apply makeup right away after the treatment,” says Dr. Lupin. “Best of all, these therapies can also be used in conjunction with treatments such as Thermage, which boosts natural collagen production.”

Dermatology centres such as Dr. Lupin’s Cosmedica clinic offer quality and innovation in a safe, relaxed, and professional environment. They work closely with clients to help them personalize their treatment, reach their goals, and realize their full potential.
