Laser Skin Rejuvenation

THERE IS REALLY NOTHING THAT WILL MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW AND ERASE WRINKLES THE WAY THAT LASER RESURFACING CAN.

Laser skin rejuvenation can involve skin resurfacing, skin tightening and reducing skin pigmentation. Some of the laser resurfacing techniques can treat a number of conditions including discolouration, fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring and broken blood vessels.

Our office has various lasers to suit your individual needs, including hair removal, IPL (intense pulsed light), ablative resurfacing laser and Fraxel®. Dr Shortt will discuss with you the appropriate laser skin rejuvenation techniques, according to your specific needs and desired outcome.

There is nothing that will make your skin look so nice as a laser treatment will:

It will lighten or remove pigmented spots.

It will minimize or delete broken vessels and red patches.

It will erase fine lines completely and minimize the deeper ones.

Nothing works around the mouth for wrinkles like laser resurfacing.

It has been shown in studies to reorient collagen fibres, to stimulate new collagen and to literally turn on RNA (the signal to make proteins) that is usually only found in young people’s skin.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

What is the recovery time?

Treatment with laser to rejuvenate the skin can involve different applications. Each technique offers a different result with a separate recovery time. In a private consultation, these non surgical procedures will be discussed, as well as potential risks or complications, and the expected recovery time for each application.

Testimonials

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour:) You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making this a great experience!

He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Shortt performed breast reduction/tummy tuck surgery and I am very happy with the results. He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations. I’m a 64 yr. old woman who has lived with shoulder and back pain for years. I decided to have a breast reduction in the hope of easing this discomfort and improving my quality of life in retirement. I was able to discuss questions and concerns easily with Dr. Shortt. He has a quiet, kind manner , complemented by a good sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt to my family and friends. The office staff are also very professional, friendly and helpful.

Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind.

Dr Shortt was has been incredible! I went to him in search of options for correctly my breast asymmetry. I read a lot of reviews for plastic surgeons in and around Toronto and I chose Dr Shortt because his reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Initially, I was interested in fat grafting because I feared an implant would be obvious. At my consultation, Dr Shortt explained the advantages and disadvantages of both options. His opinion was that an implant would actually be the better choice because breast augmentation with an implant is much more predictable and due to the difference in my breasts, I would probably need multiple sessions of fat grafting, which would get quite expensive. After the consultation, I understood why an implant would be the better choice for me and my body. He wrote a letter on my behalf advocating that my surgery be covered by OHIP, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, and they agreed to cover it! I really appreciated that Dr Shortt was honest about what he thought would make me the most happy (an implant in one side), not what would make him the most money (multiple sessions of fat grafting). Throughout the whole process, he was patient, understanding, and confident. His sense of humour put me at ease on surgery day and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my surgery. I didn’t want bigger breasts, just more symmetrical ones and he managed to balance me out beautifully without even touching my bigger left breast. My surgery was three weeks ago and except for the scar (which is healing beautifully) you can’t even tell I had surgery. My new breast looks and feels great and I can’t stop buying pretty new bras now that any bra will work for me. I can’t wait for bikini season! Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind. As soon as you meet him, you’ll see that he truly cares about your happiness. Thank you, Dr Shortt!
