Laser Hair Removal

Ugly and unwanted hairs can be a cause of embarrassment for a girl or lady

Permanent Hair Reduction treatment is the ideal way to get rid of unwanted hair forever. The technology used is an US FDA approved ND: YAG LASER. This method prevents the hair regeneration process and renders ineffective the ability of hair follicles to produce new hair.

Though there are various lasers for the treatment of laser hair removal, long pulsed ND: YAG  laser is best suited for Indian skin. It usually does not produce any cutaneous complications like burning, blistering and post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

Since it is more effective in growth stage of hair cycle, multiple (6-8) sittings is usually required for permanent hair reduction.

The result will be smooth, silky, stubble-free, healthy looking skin, free of infections and ingrown hairs that too without pain, pitting or scarring

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fractional laser is a non-invasive technology to deliver rapid, reliable scar removal with less risk, less pain and minimal downtime.

Fractional laser transmits light to create micro-columns of coagulated tissue that extend deep into the dermis without ablating the epidermis. This triggers a wound-healing process that replaces the disorganized, compacted scar tissue with healthy new tissue, greatly diminishing the appearance of the scar tissue. Advanced contact cooling protects the epidermis, promoting safer, more comfortable treatments.

Useful in treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, accident scars, keloid, stretch marks, skin tightening and skin resurfacing

Q Switched Laser Treatment

Q switched laser treatment is used for

  • Tattoo removal
  • Birth marks
  • Pigmented spots like freckles and melasma

It emits a highly focused beam of laser light, which passes harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and is absorbed primarily by the tattoo ink or the excess pigment within the lesion so quickly that they create a photo-acoustic effect within the pigment clusters.

This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system

Patients should expect to come back for multiple treatments to achieve expected results.

Phototherapy

1. Monochromatic Excimer Light

Monochromatic excimer light (MEL) was developed for the treatment of vitiligo. The specific 308-nm radiation wavelength is delivered in a targeted form.

It can also be used in treatment of psoriasis and hair loss.

MEL has shown efficacy superior to NB-UVB for the treatment of vitiligo and induces more changes at the cellular level than conventional UVB modalities.

The excimer laser is effective in adults and children with vitiligo in all skin types as monotherapy or in combination with other established treatment. Localized lesions of vitiligo are treated twice weekly for an average of 12 to 24 weeks. Patients commonly achieved > 75% repigmentation.

This new treatment is an efficacious, safe, and well-tolerated treatment for vitiligo.

2. Narrowband UVB

Narrowband UVB (NB) is considered the gold standard of treatment for vitiligo covering more than 20% of the body.

Narrowband UVB (NB) uses the portion of the UVB spectrum from 311-312 nm. This region has been determined to help stimulate pigment cells to produce melanocytes.

Only full sized body units provide the immune suppression needed for stabilization that may halt further pigment loss.

NB is sometimes used in combination with other topical treatments, but is effective for many on its own. NB can be used on children old enough to stand still and keep goggles on.

Results are often seen beginning between 30 and 60 treatments, and treatment is usually given 3 times a week.
