The best skin resurfacing option for you will depend on your objectives, medical history and tolerance for downtime. Please take advantage of our complementary Visia Skin Analysis Consultation which includes a review of special photos we take with our skin analysis system, plus as comprehensive discussion about your skin.
We are a team of skin and face specialists working under the direction of Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thomas Buonassisi. A thorough consultation will reveal the specific type of skin resurfacing treatment that is right for you. We specialize in the complete spectrum of surgical and non surgical treatments for skin rejuvenation. Skin resurfacing is just one of the many ways that your skin can be rejuvenated to look more clear, tighter, brighter and more youthful.
Laser technology has transformed the way we think about facial and skin rejuvenation. The team at 8 West Clinic provides a variety of laser skin resurfacing options for the Vancouver, BC area patients, from superficial laser peels with little to no downtime, to deep treatments that reveal new tight skin with a week or more of downtime.
Laser skin resurfacing is extremely customizable and effective for treating wrinkles, and improving the overall tone and texture of the skin. There are many different types of laser treatments and a quality consultation with a skin and laser specialist is essential. Dr. Buonassisi and his team will make recommendations based on a detailed exploration of your health and skin history, taking into consideration your lifestyle and tolerance for downtime.
Your laser skin resurfacing treatment will be totally customized to you and your skin. There are light peels which have little to no downtime, all the way to surgical grade peels that have longer downtime and reveal totally new skin.
A key consideration for understanding laser treatments is the relationship between how dramatic your result will be and the length of downtime you will have. Your consultation will include a discussion about where the “target” lives in your skin, developing an understanding of how much of an improvement you wish to see, followed by a discussion of how much time you can take off work and social activities. Your treatment will be customized to your specific needs.
We specialize in skin and know it inside and out. During your complementary Visia Skin Consultation, we will educate you about the layers of your skin and show where each “target” lives and what treatments are used to go after them. The skin has 3 main layers, and your consultation will include a discussion of how deep your laser resurfacing treatment needs to go to achieve your goals.
Understanding the relationship between damage done and degree of change is key to assessing, with our help, what type of laser resurfacing treatment is best for you.
