Fractional Laser Resurfacing Serving Toronto
Avenue Skin Care’s Toronto laser resurfacing patients have enjoyed remarkable results from ProFractional resurfacing technology, which delivers laser energy deep into the dermis. The treatment causes collagen remodeling and stimulates new collagen production. This is a highly effective treatment that improves wrinkles, scars, and skin texture with minimal recovery time.
ProFractional laser treatments provide excellent skin resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike older resurfacing techniques, in which the entire surface area of a treatment site is ablated, the benefits of ProFractional laser resurfacing include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and “adjustable” results that can range from subtle to striking.
How does ProFractional resurfacing work to restore skin?
Avenue Skin Care’s Toronto laser resurfacing treatments ablates [removes material from the top most surface of an object] very narrow channels into the skin, affecting only a fraction of the total treatment area.

The treatment stimulates the body’s healing response, which causes production of new collagen and elastin, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing thereby dramatically shortening the down-time following this treatment.
ProFractional therapy is usually regarded as a comfortable procedure, often tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of treatment.
How many resurfacing treatments are necessary?
Most of Avenue Skin Care’s Toronto patients enjoy the results they need in just one treatment, although your number of treatments will be assessed by your skin care professional, as part of your custom treatment plan.
How long is the healing period after ProFractional resurfacing?
Complete healing can take weeks to months. However most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a few days after the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.
What conditions can be treated with the ProFractional Laser?
- Acne Scars
- Actinic Keratoses
- Hypertrophic Scars
- Surgical Scars
- Stretch Marks
Immediately following the ProFractional resurfacing procedure you will experience mild to moderate redness and the sensation of a sunburn with mild pinpoint bleeding. Your Avenue Skin Care professional will give you detailed instructions on your care during healing.
Expected results from your ProFractional laser resurfacing treatment
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you will notice a general tightening effect. However, the deferred and cumulative affect of the ProFractional resurfacing treatment is the collagen regeneration that steadily develops over the 4 to 6 months following your treatment.
