Dermal fillers or injectable fillers can restore a youthful fullness to the face. For shallow contour lines, creases and wrinkles, injectable filler treatments could provide the natural results that you desire - a fresh and younger looking appearance. Although they won't help with excess sagging skin, injectable fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, often called liquid facelifts, offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift, without the expense or downtime of required for surgery. Injectable dermal filler is a generic term for injectable products that are used for facial aesthetic treatment, to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles or significantly reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, contour and create volume, and revitalize the skin for a more youthful appearance. Improvement can be seen almost immediately after the first treatment. Dermal fillers give a natural look that does not affect the facial expression. There is little to no recovery time required and the procedure can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. These non-surgical facelifts enable you to subtly control your looks as you age.
While Botox is the most widely known injectable product, over the last several years other extremely effective dermal fillers have been developed, including Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, Beautical, Ovita and Radiesse. All of these injectable products are safe and effective cosmetic facial treatments. However, each product is different, offering its own distinct advantages and disadvantages. Some injectable products are longer lasting then others, but can also be more expensive. One type of dermal filler may provide superior results when treating laugh lines. Another might be a better lip enhancement injectable. Botox has been proven highly successful in smoothing wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, but is not recommended for frown lines around the mouth. An experienced facial plastic surgeon can advise you which injectable treatment is right for you and discuss all your options.
Bear in mind that no injectable filler can offer a permanent solution that will eliminate fine lines and wrinkles forever. These treatments must be repeated and maintained in order to preserve a youthful appearance. As time marches on, the skin continues to age. Inevitably, at some point, wrinkles will deepen and skin will sag to a degree where derma fillers alone as a cosmetic facial treatment may no longer be able to deliver a level of improvement that is acceptable to the client. At that time, supplemental or alternative treatments should be considered. Often injectable fillers are used in conjunction with Botox or other skin rejuvenation treatments to achieve optimum results.
As well as a variety of state-of-the art plastic surgery procedures, our Toronto facial cosmetic surgery clinic offers all the latest non invasive skin treatments and minimally invasive non-surgical treatments that may help you to achieve a more youthful appearance. To find out which non-surgical cosmetic treatment is right for you, we invite you to consult with facial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Torgerson. Upon examination, Dr. Torgerson will be able to access which treatment would work best to obtain the results desired and to satisfy your own personal requirements and expectations. To treat many different types of undesirable aesthetic facial conditions, including wrinkles, frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and acne scars, Dr. Torgerson uses a variety of natural and synthetic injectable filler products that are safe and minimally invasive. Cosmetic filler treatments can also work well for lip augmentation and volume reconstruction. One of the greatest benefits of this non-surgical cosmetic treatment is that it is quick, with little to no recovery time necessary. It can often be performed over a lunch hour. Depending on the cosmetic injectable product, the results achieved can be last from approximately three months to over five years.
For women who have experienced eye lash hair loss or thinning of eye lashes and wish to grow thicker, more beautiful eyelashes, the eyelash enhancement medication LATISSE is proving to be a very popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Eyelash thinning is a common problem, especially for older women, when reduced estrogen levels can cause the hair to thin. LATISSE is a remarkable eye lash growing product and it is available at Dr. Torgerson's Toronto cosmetic surgery clinic. LATISSE has proven to be very effective in producing eyelashes that are significantly thicker, longer and darker in most patients. Available only by prescription, for optimum results, LATISSE should only be used under the guidance of an experienced facial cosmetic surgeon.
A cosmetic surgeon can best determine whether there may be skin conditions or allergies that could interfere with the product's effectiveness and will ensure that it is completely safe for the patient's use. After your facial surgeon is satisfied that LATISSE is right for you, he will write you a prescription for at home application. LATISSE is a topical liquid that is applied to the eyelid every night to stimulate eyelash growth. When used as directed, patients should begin to see results in as little as four to six weeks. Full results can take up to 16 weeks. The thicker, longer lashes are permanent with continued use of LATISSE. Follow up examinations at your doctor's cosmetic surgery clinic should be scheduled to make certain that the product is working correctly and that your treatment is progressing as it should.
Cosmetic laser treatments are rapidly becoming the most popular alternative to cosmetic surgery for people who wish to non-surgically enhance their appearance by reducing facial wrinkles or targeting skin imperfections, like acne scars, blemishes, vascular lesions and pigmented lesions. Exciting advancements in laser skin resurfacing obtain the highest degree of precision during treatments. Providing the ultimate in safety and effectiveness, fractional laser technology represents the latest and most advanced in skin resurfacing. This revolutionary medical technology is now the preferred treatment recommended for many skin conditions. Our Toronto cosmetic surgery clinic has the latest and most advanced, state-of-the-art laser equipment available and we offer a number of effective, high quality laser treatments that are safe and achieve lasting results, with minimal downtime.
Laser skin resurfacing is now the most advanced non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment available, revolutionizing the way a cosmetic facial surgeon can improve your skin's appearance, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin texture, and eliminate spots and scars. Laser facial treatments can reduce the signs of aging, giving your face a youthful glow and improving the overall condition and appearance of your skin. At Dr. Torgerson's cosmetic facial surgery clinic in Toronto, we offer a wide array of the most effective laser treatments available, including both ablative laser treatments and non-ablative laser treatments. We invite you to consult with Dr. Torgerson to find out which treatment is the right one for you.
Non-ablative laser treatments are generally less invasive than ablative laser treatments and require less recovery time, typically one to three days. A non-ablative laser conducts heat deeper into the dermis, fundamentally leaving the top layer of skin alone and treating the skin tissue beneath. The deep-placed heat that the non-ablative laser creates causes collagen to rebuild. It is ideal for the treatment of superficial wrinkles, light scars and under-eye lines. Using a non-ablative laser, we offer Intense Pulsed Light Treatments, Pigmented/Vascular Lesion Sessions, Vein Laser Treatments - including spider veins, tattoo removal, skin tightening, and acne scar treatment.
Working on the superficial layers of the skin, Ablative laser treatments or CO2 ablative laser treatments are extremely effective in correcting medium to deep wrinkling. With ablative laser skin resurfacing, the top most layers of skin are targeted with a controlled CO2 laser beam which vaporizes damaged and aged skin. The appearance of wrinkles is reduced and the skin tightens as it heals. CO2 ablative laser treatments are more invasive than non-ablative treatments, requiring a downtime of four to seven days. Also known as laser peel and lasabrasion, this popular non-surgical facial treatment is safe and very effective when preformed by an experienced facial surgeon.
We invite you to make an appointment with Dr. Torgerson at his Toronto facial cosmetic clinic to learn more about how the right cosmetic laser treatment can dramatically improve your appearance without surgery. After your personal consultation with Dr. Torgerson, he will offer his expert opinion on which laser procedure would be best to correct your particular skin problem - including scars, wrinkles and age spots, or to improve your skin's overall appearance and giving you a more youthful look. With a variety of laser options, including Ablative Pixel (mild laser resurfacing), CO2 laser (moderate laser resurfacing) or treatment with the Non-Ablative Pixel Q Switch laser, Dr. Torgerson will a recommend a personalized laser treatment plan that will achieve the best possible results.
With Canada's rapidly aging population and an increase in the environmental factors which facilitate aging effects, the advancement and refinement of facial surgeries and the development of new non surgical cosmetic procedures can be expected to increase. Canada ranked #15 amongst the world in cosmetic surgery procedures in 2011. Canada's ranking can be expected to climb as its population continues to age and more people turn to trusted surgeons to help them achieve a natural look through aesthetic and cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Through this website, Dr. Torgerson hopes to provide helpful information to inform and educate men and women who may be curious about the many cosmetic surgery procedures and non surgical facial treatments options available today. Although the popularity of facial surgery and non-surgical cosmetic treatments has dramatically increased over the last several years, for some there remains a stigma associated with plastic surgery. Dr. Torgerson would like to change this perception. Specializing in facial, head and neck cosmetic surgeries, Dr, Torgerson brings a refined sense of creativity to his work as a surgeon, with an emphasis on achieving a most pleasing natural result, regardless of facial features and skin type.
When selecting a plastic surgeon to perform cosmetic surgery procedures on your face or neck, it is important to understand that not all plastic surgeons have the same training. Dr. Cory Torgerson is a facial plastic surgeon. A facial plastic surgeon only performs reconstructive and cosmetic surgery on areas of the face, neck and head. A general plastic surgeon performs cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on both the face and body. Training for a general plastic surgeon includes a five year general plastic surgeon residency. A facial plastic surgeon will complete a five year residency in Otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, followed by an additional one to two year sub-specialty fellowship in facial plastic and cosmetic surgery.
At Dr. Torgerson's Facial Cosmetic Clinic, one of our most popular and most cost efficient laser treatments is our exclusive Laser360 skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment, which can create a more youthful appearance with just one visit. The Laser360 Treatment achieves superior results by utilizing the collective therapy of three custom technologies during one single session; including Clearlift skin tightening, AFT Intense Pulse Light and Pixel Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing. This exciting, extremely effective cosmetic laser treatment resurfaces and rejuvenates the face to reveal brighter, healthier skin, and a more youthful appearance. Combining the three different technologies, Dr. Torgerson will customize an individual treatment exclusively for you, to treat fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration.
Fashion and beauty icon Coco Chanel once said, "Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty." Chanel's observation about beauty and aging, made decades ago, rings as true today as it did then. If you want your face and skin to look its best over the years, you need to take care of it. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, exercise, and sun protection, and following a skin care regiment with quality skincare products all help to improve overall appearance and slow down the signs of aging. Thankfully today, unlike in Chanel's day, modern men and women have so many more options when it comes to looking their best and retaining a more youthful look longer. With improvements in the effectiveness of skin care products and advancements in cosmetic surgical techniques and new nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, we can stay looking younger longer.
If you are starting to feel less than pleased with the way your face is aging and think that it might be time to start fighting back against the ravages of time, or if you are unhappy with a particular, less than perfect, facial feature, such as a prominent nose, protruding ears or a weak chin, and would like to learn how plastic surgery could improve your appearance, your first step is to locate the best facial cosmetic surgeon in your area. Selecting the most highly skilled and experienced facial plastic surgeon that you can find is of paramount importance when considering any cosmetic facial surgery or non surgical treatment for your face. You want to be in the hands of a highly qualified and ethical cosmetic surgeon that you can trust, because you have so much riding on the outcome of your cosmetic surgery or nonsurgical facial procedure.
Along with the many other advanced facial cosmetic surgery procedures and non surgical treatments, including injectables treatments and laser procedures, Dr. Torgerson's Toronto cosmetic surgery clinic now offers Ultherapy, a new and totally different method of toning, tightening and lifting the skin of the face, brow and neck, delivering noticeable and natural-looking results. This ground-breaking treatment by Ulthera uses ultrasound imaging to lift and tighten the skin without surgery and, over time, stimulate new collagen growth for a more youthful appearance. This non-invasive treatment is totally safe. The procedure takes about an hour and patients usually require no downtime afterwards.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive ultrasound cosmetic therapy for toning and tightening loose skin on the forehead, brow, neck and chin that has been approved by Health Canada and the FDA. Offering good results without the recovery time and post-operative discomfort of a surgical facial procedure, Ultherapy should be considered by women and men looking for a viable alternative to a surgical facelift. Dr. Torgerson uses a newly upgraded version of the Ulthera software. This new software, called Ultherapy Amplify, makes the laser procedure more comfortable for the patient. Most patients report minimal discomfort during their Ultherapy session and finding the entire experience was quite tolerable.
If you are considering cosmetic facial surgical or a non-surgical facial procedure, one of the best ways to decide if surgery or a non-surgical technique is right for you is to meet with a qualified facial plastic surgeon. It is important to speak frankly with your cosmetic surgeon about your goals and expectations. The choices of treatment available can seem overwhelming. And, for every individual there are physical and psychological variables that your surgeon must take into account before deciding on the best course of treatment to achieve the optimum outcome. During your initial private consultation with Dr. Cory Torgerson, he will discuss with you which facial cosmetic surgical procedure or nonsurgical treatment he would recommend for your particular requirements.
