LASER, or ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation’ is a process of focusing intense beams of light of specific wavelengths on a particular area of the body. Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure where the light beams are used to bring physiological changes in the cells.

 

Laser therapy has an extensive use in the field of Dermatology.

 

Skin conditions that may require Laser Treatment

1.      Congenital Skin Defects including vascular and pigmented lesions

2.      Removal of tattoos, scars and wrinkles

3.      Cosmetic purpose, like excessive or unwanted hair removal from different parts of the body

 

HAIR REMOVAL

 

The pigment Melanin in skin absorbs the light emitted by the laser. That light converts to heat and damages the hair follicle. This, in turn, inhibits or delays hair growth.

 

Laser hair removal can be done on any part of the body, including areas like face, legs, arms and underarms.

 

Laser hair removal technique isn’t permanent but works for much longer, compared to shaving or waxing.

 

 

SKIN REJUVENATION

 

Advanced Technology used in Laser Skin Treatment can rejuvenate your skin by removing wrinkles and tightening your skin.

 

Types of Laser Skin Treatment:

1.      Laser Resurfacing technique is used to stimulate collagen production along with new cells in the dermal layer of skin, as a result, reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles appearing on the face and neck.

2.      Another method of Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatment is heating up the underlying layers of skin by infrared light. Collagen is produced which tightens up the skin.
