Let Oceanside Medical set out a skin care program for your specific complexion and needs.

Winter is “laser season”. In Winter, we notice unsightly pigmentation and age spots as our tans fade. The good news is that winter is also the best time for laser light therapies that reduce age spots and hyperpigmentation.

Laser-treated skin is new, and is more sensitive than normal skin. This sensitivity can last up to three months after a procedure. Therefore after a laser treatment, you are at higher risk for sunburn, the return and worsening of sun spots, and even a greater intensity of UV damage.

Therefore Oceanside recommends a 3-month break from the sun after any laser treatment. This is much easier during the winter months when the rain falls in Vancouver. You’re just less likely to be outdoors and exposed!

Cynosure Icon light therapies

Our Cynosure IPL and laser light therapies for skin revitalization treat colour and pigmentation issues like age spots, pigmentation, Rosacea, broken capillaries and blood vessels as well as vascular lesions.

Don’t conceal imperfections behind a mask! This non-surgical treatment improves your skin’s appearance quickly and easily. The advanced light-based technology deals with sun damage, and reveals clearer skin.

Watch your scars fade away, to boost your confidence for the festive season.

Oceanside’s skin renewal programme deals with acne scars, stretch marks and more, to reveal smooth and beautiful skin. Fractional technology uses pulses of laser light to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production underneath the skin. The new collagen helps improve both the texture and colour of the stretch marks.

The 3-5 session treatment plan can be adjusted to fit your lifestyle, with regard to downtime, comfort and results.

Cynosure radio frequency therapies

Forget the invasive procedures, injectables and chemicals, it’s it time for a simple solution that works. Tempsure Envi minimizes facial fine lines, wrinkles while tightening skins and improving the appearance of cellulite.

Radio frequency is painless, and each session lasts about 20 minutes.  You’ll leave Oceanside with a natural glow, and a “tighter” feeling. After the treatment your collagen will continue to rebuilt, enhancing your appearance even more over time.

Cynosure Hair Removal

Fall is the best time for hair removal as direct sun exposure and UV tanning beds should be avoided for at least two weeks before your appointment. Sunburned skin cannot undergo laser treatments.

Cynosure’s laser hair removal treatments target and destroy the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is smooth, hair-free skin that lasts. Treatments are non-invasive, which means no downtime is required.
