Which Laser treatments are right for you?

Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery offers a variety of treatments that target common areas of skin concern.
Our Medical Aesthetician offers complimentary consultations to create a treatment plan customized to your skin.
Treatments offered include:



Ablative Laser Facial Treatments

Ablative laser services involve using laser energy from the state of the art Fotona SP Dynamis Er:YAG laser to resurface the skin by removing the outermost layers and sending energy in to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen formation. The skin is numbed prior to treatment for comfort. These processes break the skin and therefore require planned downtime and aftercare procedures to adhere to.

Micro Laser Peel

During this treatment, a layer of the epidermis is removed through laser ablation. It resurfaces the skin to improve the appearance of superficial sun damage and melasma, pores, texture and fine lines.  Up to three treatments may be recommended.

Downtime is 4-5 days, with tenderness, redness, flaking and potential swelling expected.

Best Suited for Treating: Superficial hyperpigmentation, melasma, enlarged pores, textural irregularities, fine lines

Gynecological Laser Treatments

IncontiLase/IntimaLase

Due to aging and/or childbirth, some women face issues of urinary incontinence or vaginal laxity (the weakening of the vaginal walls). Using controlled heating from the laser, the photo-thermal heating increases collagen production in the vaginal walls and urethra. This enhances the structure and support of the vaginal mucosa leading to improvement of the symptoms of urinary incontinence and vaginal laxity. Recommended two treatments, 6-8 weeks apart.

Minimal downtime. Mild swelling and redness to the treated area. The area is numbed prior to treatment to improve patient comfort. Post-care instructions provided prior to treatment. This procedure is performed by one of our gynecology nurses.
