As we age, everything about our skin gets thinner aside from the stratum corneum – the very outside layer of the skin. As it thickens, it doesn’t reflect light the way it did before and our skin looks dull and aged. The outside layers accumulates imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of sun damage such as brown spots.
The team at 8 West Clinic in Vancouver BC specializes in skin resurfacing and the complete spectrum of skin rejuvenation services. We are a team of face and skin experts working under the direction of Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thomas Buonassisi and we use the most powerful medical grade laser devices available. Our extremely tuneable devices give us the freedom to completely customize the treatment to the needs of each patient. A NanoLaserPeel™ precisely removes just the outmost layers of the skin quickly and with little to no downtime. The NanoLaserPeel™ is just one of the many skin rejuvenation treatments that we offer and we encourage you to start your research by scheduling a complementary Visia Skin Analysis Consultation. Our skin specialists will educate you about your skin and recommend treatments that will best achieve your goals. Whether you can tolerate one day of downtime or 5, we can customize a treatment plan that works for your lifestyle.
While microdermabrasion and chemical peels each have their place in skin resurfacing, laser skin resurfacing treatments have revolutionized the way we think about skin. The NanoLaserPeel™ offers a faster, more comfortable alternative to microdermabrasion and light chemical peels. The NanoLaserPeel™ from Sciton is the most powerful and tuneable laser device available today. It uses laser energy to resurface the top layers of the skin. The depth of the peel is customized to each patient and we can control how many days of downtime you will have. From no downtime to 3 or 4 days of redness and peeling, it is up to you.
In addition to precisely removing the outside layers of the skin, the NanoLaserPeel also accelerates the skin’s own renewal process by activating special messenger proteins. There is definitely still a place for microdermabrasion and chemical peels in the word of resurfacing, however a laser peel with Sciton is often the best choice for many patients. Other treatments often don’t go deep enough or in the case of other lasers, leave a layer of heat damaged cells. These damaged cells make it hard for the messenger cells to communicate with deep layers of skin. Only the NanoLaserPeel™ from Sciton has the precision to work at just the right depth, helping to improve the clarity, tone and texture of the skin while returning that “glow”.
The NanoLaserPeel™ is considered a superficial depth peel which safely and quickly removes, with precision, the very outside layers of the skin. This treatment is perfect for patients who want a healthy glowing look to their skin, but can’t take time off work or social commitments to recover. Benefits include:
A NanoLaserPeel™ is a fast and easy procedure that can be completed in less than 10 minutes. We customize the treatment to each patient, giving them 1 – 2 days of downtime depending on what they can tolerate. Most patients will book their procedure on a Thursday or Friday, recover over the weekend and be ready to return to work by the Monday. Patients can expect their skin to instantly feel softer and smoother. Your make up will go on easily and blend better.
