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?

Laser skin rejuvenation is a non surgical procedure commonly performed to rejuvenate the skin. If you have one or more of the following characteristics, laser skin rejuvenation might be the appropriate treatment for you:

N

desire to treat discolouration of the skin, fine lines or deep wrinkles

N

reduce the appearance of sun damage and pigmentation

N

N

desire to “reverse the clock” and restore firmness to the skin

N

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.

I had sought a breast reduction to ease the back and neck pain

I had sought a breast reduction to ease the back and neck pain I had endured for years. I had met a few other plastic surgeons over a year period. I had never been comfortable or confident enough to make the decision to have surgery…not until I met with Dr Shortt. I had been afraid of surgery and never felt convinced it was worth it. After my consultation with Dr Shortt , I was excited about how he could help. He made me feel very comfortable. During the initial examination we also spoke about the large deposits of skin and fat under my arms – a constant source of embarrassment and discomfort. I had not worn anything sleeveless in years as they spilled out. He spoke to me about “auxiliary breast tissue removal”. I was thrilled there was something that could be done and both surgeries could be performed together When explaining what the procedure would entail and the recovery time, he spoke with me not at me. He acknowledged my fears and concerns. All my questions had been answered and I knew that surgery was the right decision and he was the right surgeon for me! ( I was so excited about the prospect now that I shared with my daughter now amazing he was – she had also meet other plastic surgeons for implants for herself – she met him and was also so impressed – she had her surgery performed by him as well!) The surgery went well. At all the follow up appointments, he was always timely. You would think being exposed and examined would be uncomfortable, but is wasn’t. He is such a professional and put you at such ease with him that I never had the chance to feel uncomfortable He would exam the areas and scars and instruct how to best take care of them. He shared in my joy and excitement for the difference this had made! I feel better and look better I also want to mention what an amazing team he has as well. Everyone I came into contact with at his office were amazing! I can’t come up with one thing that I feel he could have improved on. Without any hesitation I would, and do, recommend him!

I selected Dr Shortt based on his credentials and experience

At 51 years of age and many, many years of pain, I sought out a Surgeon who would perform for me an OHIP covered Breast Reduction and after a great deal of research, I selected Dr Shortt based on his credentials and experience. Reviewing his past surgery accomplishments, I soon wanted the “Mommy Makeover”. At my first appointment, I was pleasantly surprised by the Dr Shortt’s demeanor. He was found to be very approachable and empathetic. He took the time to explain everything that I needed to know and also answered all of my questions without making it seem a burden. He went through step by step what I would go through during and after my surgery. As a very self-conscious person, he was able to make me feel very comfortable being fully exposed and was professional every step of the way. His Support Staff are all so very courteous and professional. As far as the surgery itself, I would have to say I think that not only is he an excellent Surgeon, he is a Sculptor. I am extremely pleased with the results. The few people that I have shown my stomach and newly formed belly button are astounded at the results. Currently I am 9 weeks post op and feel wonderful and able to go back to the gym. Dr Shortt being a Perfectionist wants another 6mth appt to ensure that I remain am as happy as I am today and that the scarring is as minimal as possible. He has changed my life and I am very grateful. I would and have recommended him to several people already.

I am currently 5 weeks post op and am extremely pleased with my results

I am currently 5 weeks post op and am extremely pleased with my results so far and Dr.Shortt told me if I’m happy with the results so far, wait until I’m finally healed. Dr Shortt is an amazing doctor, his bedside manner is impeccable and at every step of the way he made me feel comfortable and you could tell he genuinely really cared. He took his time to listen to me and my concerns and reassured me he would do his very best, and the results so far are amazing, I am extremely happy and feel amazing. With any big surgery it can be scarey and nervous but Dr.Shortt is very knowledgeable and most of the time had already answered all my questions I had for him and he put me at ease. His staff are amazing to work with too, especially Joanne. Thank you guys, from my very first consult to today you have made this whole experience absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend you definitely go see Dr.Shortt his professionalism and the fact that he actually treats you like a person first shows he really cares.

I am very pleased with the excellent work of Dr. Rodger Shortt

I am very pleased with the excellent work of Dr. Rodger Shortt. His expertise and great manners helped me a lot through the difficult times and multiple operations I went through. As a cancer breast patient, I had two mastectomies for my right and left breasts. Dr. Short joined the surgeon on my second mastectomy and started his wonderful work of inserting the breast tissue expanders. I visited Dr. Shortt’s clinic several times to inject the saline into the breast expanders. During these visits, I appreciated the staff pleasant attitudes and Dr. Shortt recommendations. At the last stage of the process, Dr. Shortt removed the breast expanders and inserted the breast implants and he reconstructed my nipples from my breast skin. I am very pleased with the wonderful job Dr. Shortt has completed. I highly recommend Dr. Shortt and wish him every success with all the patients.

I am so very grateful for all the hard work he did

About 8 years ago I had a lumpectomy leaving my breasts very unbalanced. It has made super uncomfortable about my appearance especially in a bathing suite. Dr. Shortt did an amazing job fixing this. I am so very grateful for all the hard work he did. My girls look like twins instead of cousins. Also, his staff is excellent and caring. I am so happy and recommend him to anyone who needs a good Plastic Surgeon who listens and get the best possible results for his patient.

So unbelievably happy with my tummy tuck results with Dr. Shortt!

So unbelievably happy with my tummy tuck results with Dr. Shortt! After having two big babies (9&11.5 lb) I was left with stretched abdominal skin and a gap in my abdominal wall that no amount of working out was going to fix (and I tried!!!) I knew I was going to need surgery but it was a long road of research and decision making including visiting many surgeons before making my decision to go with Dr. Shortt. He did not disappoint! From the appointments, to the surgery techniques, products, his nursing and support staff, and after surgery care I could not be happier with my decision to go with him nor with my results. To start Dr. Shortt was very personable, he listened to what I wanted and seemed to really care about my concerns and get what I was looking for. Dr. Shortt was able to clearly explain his techniques and provide me with numerous before and after pictures. I had zero complications throughout surgery and my recovery and believe that was definitely due to the time and care Dr. Shortt took with me. I am so happy with my results and my decision to go with Dr. Shortt! I would highly recommend him!!!!

Fabulous Surgeon Fabulous Results

My experience with Dr. Shortt was fantastic. He is very personable and the first time I met him he had my trust. I have had two procedures done by Dr. Shortt and am extremely happy with the results. He takes the time with you to explain everything and is up front about what you can expect from the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Shortt to anyone.
