Advanced Skin Care Treatment at Albany Laser In Edmonton

The cosmetic industry is a billion dollars industry, and much investment has been placed in advanced procedures, especially regarding skin care.

The skin is a vital organ in the human body and has many essential body functions. Thus it is required that we take care of the skin. The skin needs more care than most organs throughout the body; we can say this because it covers the whole of our body.

Using suitable cream, soap and lotion can help keep your skin in good condition, while those that suffer from cracked skin, or some other skin ailment, will need special cream and lotion as prescribed by a dermatologist.

Over the years, there has been advancement within the skin care industry, and we have seen modern medicine take its course. We now have advanced ways of beautifying the skin, treating skin ailments or diseases and carrying out major skin surgeries.

Here are some of the modern and advanced ways of taking care of our skin:

 Laser Therapy

Laser skin care is a modern treatment for replacing skin surfaces using a laser beam to remove wrinkled skin, dead skin or infected skin. Removing the skin surface will allow fresher and new skin to grow, thus replacing the old skin. This will give your skin a new young feel, making you look more beautiful and healthier. This procedure is commonly used by aging people to help make their skin look younger and fresher, and those suffering from acne and scarring want to remove blemishes from their skin, as this is a more precise procedure.

The procedure is usually carried out by a trained professional, and you will be expected to take specific precautions before the procedure. You are to avoid certain medication days before the operation, avoid smoking and ensure you do not suffer from conditions that may impede your recovery. We offer multiple laser treatments, including:

  • Ablative Fraction Lasers such as Fotona Laser and CO2 Laser
  • Non-Ablative Fractional Lasers such as Fraxel Dual
  • Short Pulsed Laser such as Lutronic Spectra
  • Long Pulsed Laser such as Elit+

Dermal Fillers

Modern sciences have improved the healthcare sector, so we can now look and feel better with less effort. Aging is one of humanity’s mysteries, and they have looked for ways to reduce or eliminate the aging process.

One such way is through cosmetic procedures, and the use of fillers is one of these methods. Aging in the skin can be caused by changes in bone density, loss of fats, a chemical imbalance in collagen throughout the body and other factors.

With advanced technology, scientists have now understood the aging process and have looked for ways to reduce it. One such advanced skin care procedure is injectable fillers to help balance the density and bone structure under the skin. This procedure will help keep the skin much younger and prevent skin slacking.

The injection of the fillers should be carried out by a professional to prevent complications. There have been cases of fillers being applied wrongly, leading to excessive skin sagging.

Botox Injections

Botox for skin wrinkle treatment is very common, as it is one of the simplest forms of advanced skin care. It involves injecting a special chemical known as Botox into the skin to prevent the wrinkling effect. Botox prevents facial muscles from contracting and contrasting during a smile, frowning or any such facial activity. The muscles move a lot during these facial activities, leading to loosening, but applying Botox keeps the muscle intact. This simple procedure will prevent the aging effect on your skin and keep you looking young.

However, there are some side effects associated with Botox injection. You may experience pains at the point of the injection, bruises, headaches, rash, and other minor effects. It is advisable also to seek advice from a doctor or injection-certified pharmacists if you are pregnant or plan to get pregnant soon before using Botox.


This term is relatively new to some people and is fast becoming accepted in skin care procedures. Microneedling involves making minute openings in the skin using tiny needles to stimulate the skin’s healing powers.

When the skin gets injured, it releases chemicals that will ensure the regeneration of brand-new skin, which is fresher. So this is the idea in the microneedling procedure, for the skin to generate chemicals that will generate new and healthy skin. Such as releasing collagen and elastin to keep the skin in good condition.

As the name may imply, it involves poking the face, which may sound painful, but it is a painless procedure. A dermatologist or surgeon can do Microneedling, or you can do it yourself at home.

Microneedling can be used as an anti-aging procedure to repair broken skin, acne, or sunburn. And it usually does not have many side effects like other advanced skin care procedures.

So many other advanced skin care procedures have made it easy to treat and care for your skin. These modern skin care procedures have great benefits, which include:

  • It improved and better skin care procedures with fewer health effects on patients.

Chemical Peel and TCA

A chemical peel, also known as a chemexfoliation or derma-peeling therapy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that helps to improve the skin’s texture and appearance. This treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the face, which causes the outer layer of dead skin cells to gently peel away. The result is a smoother, more even complexion with fewer wrinkles and blemishes. Chemical peels can provide many benefits for skin health, such as reducing signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin tone and texture, softening acne scars and other discoloration, shrinking pores, stimulating collagen production for increased firmness, and eliminating blackheads. Additionally, chemical peels are highly customizable in terms of the type of solution used and its strength; this allows patients to customize the treatment based on their unique needs. Chemical peels can help give patients healthier-looking skin with improved complexion by offering an effective method of exfoliation that can be used on nearly any area of the body.

It is advisable to visit a professional dermatologist to treat your skin. You should go for a skin checkup to properly diagnose any problem. Afterward, the right treatment or procedure will be recommended.
