Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment in Toronto
Our skin says a lot about us. Having young, healthy, smooth skin is one of the keys to looking great. However, over time our skin begins to break down. It’s natural, and there is nothing much we can do to stop the body from aging. Wrinkles, lines, spots, and other blemishes will begin to appear on the body, and these can be a big hit to a person’s self-confidence.
Lucky for you, dermatology and medical science have come far enough so that there are treatments that can reverse the signs of aging, and give you beautiful skin. Fractional laser resurfacing is a modern medical treatment that is aimed at making your skin look young and beautiful again. Damaged skin is targeted by an intense beam of light that destroys the damaged, surface-level cells. This encourages new skin to grow. Both men and women can get smoother, younger, healthier skin in no time at all.
Who are the best candidates for fractional laser resurfacing?
Although we all suffer from the signs of aging, the best candidates are those who want to improve their appearance and reduce:
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Skin blemishes
- Sun spots
- And fine lines
The benefits of this treatment go far beyond these conditions though. So please contact us today for your free consultation.
How Does This Treatment Work?
The treatment starts with our trained medical staff focusing a laser beam onto predetermined treatment zones. The difference here is that the beam is broken up or “fractured” into thousands of microscopic zones so that it can effectively treat damage at both skin level, and under the skin as well. This gentle and efficient procedure reduces signs of aging and rejuvenates the skin, ultimately producing fresh, younger looking faces, necks and hands. During the treatment, old, damaged cells are replaced with healthy new ones in just a few short sessions.
Fractional laser resurfacing, unlike ablative resurfacing, penetrated deep under the skin to hard-to-reach areas. It involved deep tissue remodeling and is best for people with deep scars and wrinkles.
Using a YAG laser, a micro epidermal peel is created and through a thermo-mechanical reaction, the problematic areas on the top of the skin are removed. The fresh, new layer that grows has an improved texture, with reduced or even fully-healed rhytids, scarring and spots.
The technician will select the laser’s strength and depth field to adapt to your needs.

Fractional laser resurfacing Q & A
How long are treatments?
Treatment lengths vary, but count on about 30 minutes for the face.
Who performs the treatment?
Our certified medical aestheticians, who have years of targeted training and experience in the field.
Do I need to prepare in any way?
Prior to treatment you need to stay out of the sun for two weeks, and stop using skin care products that contain harsh ingredients. Ingredients to be aware of are: retinol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, hydroquinone, and light sensitive antibiotics.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Every client has different needs and wants to address different issues in regards to their skin. Clients will notice great improvement after just one treatment. However, for long lasting
results, 6 treatments are highly recommended.
How effective is it?
This treatment has proven to be incredibly effective over the years. Patients have seen real results after just a few sessions. The reason that it is so effective is because it targets the epidermis and the dermis, the outer and inner layers of your skin. Since it targets microscopic areas, it only affects the bad cells of the skin, which stimulate the healthy ones to aid in the healing process. With the added stimulation of the collagen production, the skin begins to reform over where the bad cells were with newer, healthier skin cells. This means that even though we are using a laser to stimulate the process, in reality it is your body’s natural processes that are creating the new skin, and nothing more. This is why it has been so effective over the years.
Is anyone not suitable for laser resurfacing?
Women who are breast feeding or pregnant must wait to have the procedure. If you have taken Accutane, you almost must wait at least 6 months. For those patients with acne, we recommend another form of treatment such as chemical peels.
What is The Downtime? Are There Any Side Effects?
Since the laser beam is low-concentration, and the process is non-invasive, there is very minimal downtime and side effects. You will be able to get back to your normal life immediately, and see results quickly. This is why Hairfree Laser Skin Clinics’ fractional technology has become such a popular choice among many. *Results may vary from person to person. Results can not be guaranteed.*
