Beam me up.

From light sabres to kitty toys, people have come up with some interesting ways to use laser technology. But what ARE lasers, exactly? "Laser" is actually an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Say what? Essentially, lasers are devices that emit a single-wavelength source of high energy light.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LASERS?

In terms of resurfacing lasers, there are two basic types:

  • Ablative lasers vaporize the top layers of damaged skin
  • Nonablative lasers target the skin without removing or damaging layers

SO LASERS CAN HELP MY SKIN LOOK BETTER?
Our laser treatments can help improve these skin concerns:

WHY ALL THIS BUZZ ABOUT THE HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER?

Hybrid Fractional Laser by Sciton® is a game-changer. It's the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, and we're the first clinic in Toronto to offer this type of laser.

What makes Hybrid Fractional Laser technology better? Until now, you had to choose between an ablative procedure that offered great results but a long recovery time, or a non-ablative procedure with a rapid recovery but marginal results. Hybrid Fractional Laser gives you the best of both worlds: superior results with minimal downtime.

Hybrid Fractional Laser IMPROVES:

Now that we've got you all excited to try it, there's more good news. Since we're one of the first Canadian clinics launching this technology, we're able to offer Hybrid Fractional Laser at a special introductory rate. Contact us at 647-351-9277 or book a consultation online.
