Advanced laser treatments in Victoria B.C.
With Dr. Mark Lupin, Dermatologist, at the helm, Cosmedica Laser Centre has become known for the advanced and extensive laser treatments it offers. With many years of experience with laser safety, advanced techniques and laser physics under his belt, Dr. Lupin is constantly in pursuit of the latest laser innovations to improve the experience and outcomes for his Victoria, B.C. and Vancouver Island patients. We are excited to announce that the Fotana laser system has joined the ranks of our premiere laser devices. This versatile treatment platform has a range of unique applications that can address snoring and sleep apnea, acne scarring and perioral volume loss.
Snoring and apnea treatment.
For patients who suffer from poor quality sleep due to snoring and/or sleep apnea, NightLase® offers a safe and effective alternative to sleep apnea machines and chemical treatments.
A series of three treatments spaced over a 6 week period is a non-invasive way to reduce the effects of sleep apnea and snoring that can last up to a year. It does so by safely treating the oral mucosa tissue with laser energy to induce collagen contraction. The resultant tightening effect translates into a decreased amplitude of snoring and a reduced occurrence of apnea.
Patients look forward to better quality rest when their sleep patterns are not disrupted. Treatments are comfortable and effective, and can be repeated as needed.
Laser acne scar removal.
Scar reduction is one of the special focuses we have at Cosmedica. The Fotana Frac3® is an excellent tool to target and treat specific and deep skin imperfections. The Frac3® technology uses a self-induced, fractional effect via the Nd:YAG laser, and an exact pulse structure that generates tiny concentrated spikes of high temperature. The pulses of laser energy remodel the existing collagen and build new collagen to smooth away skin imperfections and rejuvenate the skin tissues non-invasively.
The aging changes that happen around the mouth such as deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines can now be treated from the inside out. The SmoothLiftin™ treatment is a breakthrough non-ablative Er:YAG intraoral laser therapy. It uses precise and gentle “bulk-heating” to stimulate collagen contraction from inside the mouth which results in a plumping effect to the nasolabial folds. In addition to an immediate tightening effect, new collagen is synthesized which improves the overall tightness and elasticity of the treated tissue. With this gentle and non-invasive treatment, patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance to their lower face and mouth over a period of weeks and months following their SmoothLiftin™ session.
With the introduction of this versatile treatment platform we can provide Victoria, B.C. and Vancouver Island patients the opportunity to safely and effectively treat a variety of specific concerns.
