What is a Fraxel® Laser?
A Fraxel® laser is sometimes described as a fractional laser. It is also sometimes called a “non-ablative” or “non-wounding” laser. We use the Fraxel® laser in laser skin resurfacing. We, therefore, use it to treat the following conditions:
• Acne scars
• Surgical scars
• Actinic keratosis
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Enlarged pores
• Age spots
A conventional laser removes the topmost layers of the skin. A fractional laser, by contrast, emits separate beams that penetrate the skin. It creates tiny holes that trigger the skin’s healing process, so it produces new skin cells and collagen fibers.
What is Laser Genesis™?
Laser Genesis™ is a technology used in skin rejuvenation procedures at our clinic in Guelph, ON. It can be used to treat problems like the following:
• Rough or uneven texture
• Enlarged pores
• Sun damage
Laser Genesis™ is both non-invasive and non-ablative. The laser passes harmlessly through the skin to strengthen existing collagen fibers and stimulate the body into making new fibers.
What About Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure at our clinic in Guelph, ON that can be performed almost anywhere on the body. We use two makes of lasers for laser hair removal: Cutera CoolGlide® and Lumenis® LightSheer Diode.
The CoolGlide® has the distinction of being the first laser the FDA has cleared for use on all skin types. It works better for people with dark skin than do other lasers. The Lumenis® boasts a fast treatment time and contains a cooling system to keep the patient comfortable during treatment.
