One can classify the cosmetic dermatology treatments offered at SpaMedica by the cause of the condition, or by the treatment modality used to treat the condition. Below are a number of commonly presenting concerns of Toronto Cosmetic Dermatology patients.

How to Treat Red, Vascular Discoloration and Spider Vein Disorders?

Some of the many conditions treated by the SpaMedica’s cosmetic dermatologists include red discoloration of the skin, including small red and blue spider veins and blood vessels, rosacea, erythema and flushing.  These are generalized inflammatory conditions that lead to dilation of blood vessels and redness, skin sensitivity and even Acne eruptions.  These red discolourations and disorders of the skin include rosacea and rosacea-like illnesses and can be treated with a variety of topical prescribed skin products, oral medications, or, most popularly, laser and light devices.

The SpaMedica dermatologists are experts at treating brown spots, brown discolouration, photo-aging (UV light damage), hyperpigmentation and Dyschromia caused by sun damage.  There are many reasons and etiologies for unsightly brown spots including age, sun exposure and the genetic risks of Melasma and hyperpigmentation.  The expert SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic dermatology team  uses a variety of topical skin treatments and medically prescribed bleaching agents, as well as state of the art laser and energy devices, such as intense pulse light or IPL Photofacials, including three of the world’s leading IPL Photofacial systems, the Max G, the Sciton BBL and the Lumecca from Inmode.

Toronto cosmetic dermatology patients who undergo laser treatments are usually performed under topical anesthesia with or without an air chilling device.  Occasionally topical cryogen (freezing spray) is combined with laser treatment and sometimes local anesthetic is used to instill under a cosmetic dermatology skin problem prior to its treatment with a topical dermatologic laser.  Most patients find cosmetic dermatology treatments extremely tolerable and can often return to work the same or the following day.

What Kind of Recovery Occurs After Cosmetic Dermatology Treatment?

The recovery after a SpaMedica cosmetic dermatology treatment will depend on the laser and energy treatment that is delivered.  In general, the ablative treatments using fractional lasers or radio frequency devices may have several days of redness and crusting and be treated with topical antibiotic ointment.  Treatments that are for unwanted brown discolouration or blood vessel lesions will usually leave no disruption of the skin surface other than slight scabbing or scaling or bruised discolouration and these can often be camouflaged with makeup easily.  Toronto cosmetic dermatology patients that visit SpaMedica will be advised at the time of their consultation what kind of recovery time will be required.  Many patients proceed with their cosmetic dermatology treatment immediately while others will plan ahead if there is some degree of mild or moderate downtime required.

How Many Treatments Will be Required for my Cosmetic Dermatology Therapy?

Most cosmetic dermatology problems will require between 1-3 treatments that are usually performed 4-8 weeks apart.  At the time of your cosmetic dermatology appointment your cosmetic dermatologist will carefully examine your skin, discuss with you the risk and benefits of the various options and you’ll be informed of the pricing structure and recovery time of each option.

Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Skin Care Procedures

There are many skin conditions that can detract from attractive, compelling and youthfully vital looking skin. The experienced and well respected cosmetic laser dermatologists of SpaMedica are well versed in the dozens of laser skin care technologies and high tech solutions to improving the appearance of your skin.

Cosmetic Mole Removal

Unwanted benign moles on the skin are fairly common. The moles may be removed with traditional surgery or curettage, which may lead to aesthetically displeasing scars or discolorations. Because medical laser dermatologists at SpaMedica are well versed in using high tech lasers to remove benign, unwanted and visually displeasing moles, the risk of discoloration or scarring is minimized significantly . Cosmetic benign skin growths are extremely common, especially as we age. There are many cosmetic lasers at SpaMedica that can simply, effectively and safely remove these cosmetic benign skin growths with minimal scarring and downtime.

Laser Acne Treatment

Acne is one of the most common skin concerns in adolescent and early adult onset years. The cosmetic dermatologists at SpaMedica are well trained in the treatment of adolescent and adult onset acne and may deploy many high tech, non antibiotic, non Accutane, laser and light based treatments, with a high degree of success, controlling acne outbursts and minimizing the risks of scarring.

Laser Blood Vessel Removal

Small spider veins of the nose, cheek, chin and face are very common. Often caused by hereditary and hormonal factors, these small, little vessels respond best to high tech laser treatments performed quickly and simply in an outpatient environment. Older techniques such as injection were much more prone to scarring. However, the new laser removal treatments of small spider veins can be done without any visible scarring and with very little downtime.

Laser Birthmark Removal

Laser vascular birthmark removal is a very common procedure at SpaMedica. We have high tech pulse dye lasers, intense pulse light systems, long pulse lasers as well as the synergist or combination of pulse, dye and long pulse YAG lasers for the most effective and comprehensive ability to treat discoloured vascular hereditary birthmarks. Many patients have thought these could not be removed without significant scarring but the high tech use of SpaMedica lasers allows the cosmetic laser dermatologist to tremendously improve the appearance of these blood vessel birthmarks without residual scarring or deformity leading to significant, often miraculous, improvements in the appearance of individuals suffering from birthmarks.

Rosacea

Many patients are also afflicted by rosacea or rosacea acne form eruptions. Rosacea is an ill defined disease of the skin characterized by erythema flushing redness, inflammatory changes such as dilated pores and even acne form eruptions over the nose, cheeks and chin. The use of high tech vascular lasers and intense pulse light systems allow the cosmetic laser dermatologists at SpaMedica to fully control the irritating symptoms of sensitive skin and rosacea.

Laser Brown Spot Removal

Laser brown spot removal is a very common procedure at SpaMedica and a very common skin concern. It is estimated that over 70% of women and men over 35 have unwanted brown spots or sun spots, also known as age spots, on their face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Again, surgical removal or more aggressive techniques will result in unwanted, aesthetically displeasing scars and pigmentation concerns. The use of high tech lasers specific to brown spots will allow laser dermatologists, Dr. Michael Davis or Dr. Ingrid Jarvis, to selectively and precisely remove these brown spots, greatly minimizing the risk of any visible ghosting, pigmentation or scarring. It is important that you see a laser dermatology expert like Dr. Davis or Dr. Jarvis to ensure that these brown spots are not, in fact, early cancerous growths. Brown birthmarks of the skin are also very common. Called small and large congenital pigmented nevi they may present with or without hair. There are many specialized types of hereditary moles and many of them have special and complicated names. Regardless, Dr. Michael Davis and Dr. Ingrid Jarvis have some of Toronto’s most advanced Q-switched lasers, including the Q-Switched 755 nanometer laser, Q-Switched 1064 laser and Q-Switched 532 nanometer laser, all of which can be used to specifically treat cosmetic brown spots and hereditary pigmented moles. It is important to seek the expertise of a cosmetic dermatology specialist like Dr. Michael Davis and Dr. Ingrid Jarvis because they can assess these congenital, pigmented moles and determine whether there are any health risks due to cancerous transformation of these birthmarks.

Laser Wrinkle Reduction

As we age, deterioration and descent afflict our skin and we develop wrinkles. SpaMedica’s Laser Dermatology specialists are experts in the use of fractional lasers, ablative and non-ablative, as well as ergine and carbon dioxide lasers to smooth out unwanted wrinkles, texture and acne scars. Most of these procedures are performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient and you’ll be able to see results within a very short time.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos have become extremely popular, and as a result the laser removal of some of these unwanted tattoos has become even more popular. The laser dermatologists at SpaMedica, Dr. Michael Davis and Dr. Ingrid Jarvis, are some of Canada’s most experienced laser tattoo removal experts. The SpaMedica laser dermatology program is the largest private laser centre in Canada and has the most effective laser tattoo removal systems available. The 532 nanometer Q-Switched laser combined with the 755 nanometer Q-Switched laser and the 1064 nanometer Q-Switched Nd Yag laser allows, together with urbium ablative and fractional CO2 lasers, allows the cosmetic laser dermatologists at SpaMedica the most wavelengths and the greatest degree of technological sophistication in treating modern day professional tattoos.
