Chemical Peels (Pigmentation, Acne)

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments applied to the skin on the face, neck and hands. The chemical peel treatment removes the top layer of the skin and allows for the regeneration of new, healthier skin. Different types of chemical peels are recommended to different patients based on the intensity of the exfoliation they require. Chemical peels can help in the treatment of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, uneven hyperpigmentation or melasma. Nowadays combination peels are used to improve the result and minimize the complications.

Before the procedure, the doctor may recommend a specific skin care routine to prepare the skin. Chemical peels are usually performed as an outpatient procedure and may last from 30 to 90 minutes. For deep chemical peels, the doctor may use a topical anaesthetic to numb the face. After the procedure the patient will be advised to use special lotions, avoid facial scrubs and stay out of the sun. Chemical peels could have possible side effects including redness, dryness, pain and swelling. Recovery time may range from 3 days to 2 weeks depending upon the peels used. .

Microdermabrasion (Machine for Smoothening Skin)

Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive procedure used to improve the appearance of the skin. The procedure uses a special instrument to gently scrub away the dead cells and rough outer layer of the skin, allowing for the regeneration of new, healthy skin. Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scars, dull skin, sun damage and blackheads. The patient may be advised to avoid sun exposure, waxing and exfoliants for a period of time before the procedure. The microdermabrasion procedure takes about an hour. The patient is likely to see immediate results after the procedure. The patient will be advised to moisturize and apply sunscreen regularly after the procedure. The patient may feel redness of the skin, swelling and tenderness. This should normally go away within a day.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment

Platelet-rich plasma treatment is a medical technique used to speed up healing and stimulate tissue regeneration, by injecting growth factors and platelets isolated from the patient’s blood into specific sites in the body. This technique is also used to stimulate hair growth in the scalp. Before the procedure, the patient’s blood is drawn and passed through a centrifuge. The centrifuge isolates the platelet cells of the blood. Sometimes the isolated platelet cells are run through the centrifuge again to concentrate them further. The platelet serum is then micro-needled into the patient’s scalp. The PRP is injected into the root of the hair follicle. This stimulates the growth of dermal papilla cells which contribute to hair growth. PRP injection is also used for facial Rejuvenation, Scar modulation and adjuvant treatment of chronic wounds.

LASER Procedures

  • Hair Reduction
  • Laser hair reduction or removal is a permanent hair removal method and it is the most common application of LASER. It is a medical procedure that uses laser beams to eliminate unwanted hair. The laser emits light energy that is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. This damages the hair follicle and limits future growth. With repeated laser hair removal sessions, most patients achieve a permanent loss of hair growth. The result depends on the hair color. White / brown hair will have less optimum results compared to Black hair. Some patients may require periodic follow-up treatments. The doctor will be able to advise the patient on their chances of success with laser hair reduction therapy after a physical exam.

    Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the skin, except around the eyes. The doctor will give the patient specific instructions about their pre-procedural care. This may include avoiding direct sunlight, wearing moisturizer and sunscreen and avoiding blood thinners. During the procedure, the doctor places a hand-held laser device against the skin and operates on the desired areas. The device usually has a cooling mechanism that will continuously counteract the heat produced by the laser on the skin. It may feel prickly and uncomfortable, but should not burn intensely. To reduce any discomfort after the procedure, the doctor may recommend ice packs. The patient will also be advised to avoid sunlight and use a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen.

    The Triple wavelength FDA approved Diode laser at the advanced centre of aesthetics will help you to remove the unwanted hairs of all types with optimum result.

  • Acne Scar Treatment
  • Laser treatment for acne scars aims to minimize the appearance of scarring caused by old acne. The treatment focuses laser beams on the acne scars to break up the tissue and remove it. The treatment also encourages new, healthy skin to grow and replace the scar tissue. The treatment does not completely remove scars but can reduce their appearance and relieve pain and swelling. The procedure may cause side effects including redness, swelling and pain that will subside within a few hours.

  • Tattoo/Pigment Removal
  • Tattoos are skin modifications created by inserting ink or pigments into the dermis layer of the skin to form a pattern or design. Laser tattoo removal is used to remove the tattoo when the person no longer wishes to keep it. The technique uses laser beams to break up the pigments in the skin. This lightens or fades the tattoo. Over a number of sessions, the appearance of the tattoo can be significantly reduced. The duration of the treatment depends on how much lightening the patient expects. Typically, a gap of 6 to 8 weeks between sessions is recommended. Different Lasers are used depending on the pigment color. Black ink tattoos are the easiest to fade because the pigment absorbs all wavelengths of the laser.

  • Skin tag/Wart Excision
  • These can be removed using Radiofrequency or Laser. For very precise excision, surgical Laser beam is used. The heat from the laser destroys the minute capillaries to the skin tag and eliminates its blood supply. Without oxygen, the cells die and the mass eventually falls off. If the warts are caused by the growth of a virus, the laser treatment will eliminate the infection as well. Laser treatment is useful for warts in areas that are inaccessible, such as the genitals or urethra. Laser removal of warts can cause scarring. If the cause of the warts is a viral infection, recurrence is a possibility. In that case, the laser removal procedure may have to be repeated.

  • Facial Rejuvenation (Treatments of Wrinkles)
  • Laser skin resurfacing is a facial rejuvenation procedure to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and other irregularities in the facial skin. The technique uses lasers to remove layers of the skin in targeted areas in a precise manner. The FDA approved Fractional CO2 Laser at the advanced Centre for Aesthetics is used for the Facial rejuvenation. The doctor will advise you about whether laser skin resurfacing is the right procedure for your aesthetic goals.

  • Vaginal Tightening
  • Laser vaginal tightening is a painless procedure to restore the tightness of the vaginal. The procedure can improve the elasticity of the vaginal mucosa. The procedure typically involves two sessions of treatment, with a gap of 4 to 6 weeks in between. Some patients may require more sessions. During the procedure, the doctor inserts a medical probe slowly into the vagina. The probe is then retracted slowly while the laser focuses its beams on the walls of the vagina. The stimulus from the laser causes improved blood flow, collagen remodulation and contributes to elasticity and tightness.
