Laser For Hair Removal
Almost everyone, at one point in their lives has suffered from unwanted hair. Whether you have it on your face, legs, arms, back, bikini line, or anywhere else on your body chances are, you’ve resolved to some or all of those agonizing traditional methods.
Why Laser for Hair removal?
- Permanent solution for hair reduction

No more need to shave, wax or trim.
How does laser hair removal take place?
Hair grows in three cycles. First, the active or growth cycle (Anagen) next, the dormant cycle (Catagen) and finally, the fall-out or shedding cycle (Telogen). Laser hair removal is most effective during the growth cycle (Anagen). The laser light is being absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and converts the light to heat. The heat damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow without damaging delicate pores or structures of the skin.
Why do I need several sessions?
Because the laser affects hair follicles only when they are in the growth phase, more than one treatment may be necessary to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter the growth phase. During your consultation, you will be advised as to the approximate number of treatments.
Which are the areas that can be treated?
Facial areas (upper lip, chin, cheeks…), neck, armpits, bikini line. Large body areas such as full-back, full chest, shoulders, full legs, arms…

You will see results starting with your VERY FIRST session. The hair growth will be less and the hairs finer and weaker; your skin will become smoother, and the hair pores on your skin will become less visible after each session. The results will become more impressive with each following session.
Is Laser Hair Removal for everyone?
Laser hair removal will not work on white, grey, light red or light blond hair follicles. Also people who are experiencing PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) may experience poor results unless they receive medical support along with the laser treatment.

LASER FOR TATOO REMOVAL
Laser technology provides the means for your tattoo to be removed safely and quickly and in most cases, without leaving a scar. No matter the size, color, location or age of the tattoo, our lasers get the ink out without damaging the skin.
How does the treatment work?
Medical lasers designed to eradicate tattoos range from a single wavelength of light to a broad spectrum of light, the varieties of which are intended to eradicate the ink in the tattoo without damaging the skin. Certain colors of light are absorbed by specific corresponding colors of the tattoo ink. The light energy vaporizes or fragments the ink particles which are gradually removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The color fades over the next couple of weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Size, color, ink composition, location and the age of the tattoo determine the number of treatments necessary to effectively complete removal. On an average, professional tattoos require 6-8 treatments. Treatments are spaced approximately four to eight weeks apart.
How is the treatment like?
It is less painful to have a tattoo removed than getting it put on. An anesthetic cream should be applied an hour before the procedure. After the procedure the treated area may blister, swell, crust or scab. You will need to care for the area daily in order to prevent infection and get the best possible healing results. Your tattoo will then gradually fade for 4-8 weeks when we can again treat the area with our lasers.
Is it painful?
In addition to the anesthetic cream, we use an advanced cooling device that numbs your skin, reduces swelling, enhances healing and improves safety. Our patients love this new technology as it makes all the difference.
What results can I expect?
The results and appearance of the tattoo vary from patient to patient. After each treatment sessions, you will see the tattoo become lighter until it fades away completely. Due to the various levels of professionalism and types of inks used in tattooing the results and the number of treatments may vary. Typically, multiple treatments will be required and are scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart.
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING
Fractional skin resurfacing is an excellent non invasive method to enhance your skin texture, smoothness and appearance. This procedure improves your collagen production and tightens your underlying skin.
How does it work?
As the laser beam is passed over your skin, a very brief of pulses of light energy bore microscopic columns in the skin. These columns stimulate collagen production and helps in skin rejuvenation. Fractional therapy targets the deeper zone of superficial skin which enables minimal discomfort and lesser recovery time.

What is Micro-dermabration?
Microdermabration also known as mechanical exfoliation is a non invasive procedure that uses a tiny crystal to exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of skin or dead cells. It is often combined with other procedure like chemical peeling, micro needling, before PRP therapy so that there is an added benefit.
When is Micro-dermabrasion used?
Micro- dermabrasion was developed to improve acne scars, pox marks, scars from accidents or disease. It also helps in skin rejuvenation, stretch mark reduction and wrinkles. It’s not effective in treating congenital skin defects, most moles, pigmented birthmarks, or scars caused by burns.
How does Micro-dermabrasion work?
In Micro-dermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of your skin. This technique is less aggressive than dermabrasion, so you won’t feel any pain. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter. Micro-dermabrasion is safe to use on all skin color and types.

Microdermabrasion treatments usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes. However, treatment duration is variable according to the cause
Micro- dermabrasion removes the dead layer of skin surface,
- Skin feels smooth and reflects evenly for a healthy glowing skin
- Micro- channels help moisturizers and active ingredients penetrate better
- As fresh cells are exposed, it stimulates in the renewal of skin cells and collagen production
What is a chemical peel?
Chemical Peeling is the application of an exfoliating agent to the skin resulting in the destruction of portions of the superficial skin and/or moderate depth of skin with subsequent regeneration of new epidermal and dermal tissues. It can be a complementary procedure 2-3 months after face lift.

Skin Rejuvenation Mesotherapy has been touted as the latest breakthrough for skin rejuvenation.
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a safe and non invasive FDA approved procedure. It’s a technique where multiple injectable medicines like vitamins, minerals, antioxidant serums are injected directly into the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin thereby delivering healing and corrective treatment to a specific area of the face.
How is it different from skin needling?
Skin needling is performed by applying the serums rich in vitamins, minerals and anti oxidant and is delivered to the deeper layers of skin by means of a derma roller. This creates a micro channel for the serum to reach the deeper layers. The difference is the serum is injected into the skin in mesotherapy which helps in a better penetration and absorption whereas in skin needling the serum is applied onto the skin and later needling is done, so the penetration and absorption is comparatively lesser.
Mesotherapy has been approved for:
- Skin glow
- Correction of dark under-eye circles
- Skin rejuvenation and tightening
- Scar revision
- Hair loss for men & women
- Hair thinning for men and women
- Cellulite/ Spot weight reduction
How many sessions are needed?
A minimum of 5 sessions are required to see visible results for hair growth in the case of hair loss over a period of 4- 6 months. Skin glow can be seen immediately after each setting. Your doctor will best advise you after assessment, if your case may require more or less number of procedure.

How does it work?
It’s a Chemo-signals from the brain to the muscles that is responsible for the repetitive motion resulting in wrinkles. Botox blocks the signals from the nerve into the facial muscles which causes wrinkles. This relaxes the muscles and stops them contracting, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled.

What are fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances that your body produces naturally and are used to increase the volume of specific areas over the face that have lost their volume in due course of time due to photo damage and ageing there by resulting in wrinkles, hollowness and loss of facial contour.
How is the treatment given?
It is a FDA approved procedure. Dermal fillers come in a sterile pre-filled syringe. When injected into the required area, it pumps up mild to moderate lines and folds, smoothes, gives a natural look and feel, and is perfect for facial contouring and adding volume to large areas such as cheeks.
It’s a very safe technique, long lasting, natural appearing filler.
When do I need this?
After the age of 20, our skin produced 1% less collagen each year. This results in loss of facial volume, hollowing of cheeks and areas around the eyes, development of skin creases and wrinkles. Using dermal fillers for your lips and cheeks you can restore volume and youthfulness.
What are they used for?
- Plump thin lips
- Instant and long lasting wrinkle correction

What is Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy?
PRP is a blood plasma that’s rich in platelets and is derived from the patient’s own blood. WHAT ARE PLATELETS? Platelets are a component of blood who’s ability to stop bleeding and to repair damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. They release proteins (called growth factors) when they become activated by contact with the body’s tissue. This activation promotes tissue repair and collagen production.
Which areas can be treated with PRP therapy?
The following summarizes the area best suited to PRP treatment:
- Dark under-eye circles
- Hair loss
- Fine lines & creases on the forehead
- Stretch mark
- Smile lines & open pores
- Nasolabial folds
- Poor skin texture

What is carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy is a non-invasive procedure. It refers to the administration of carbon dioxide gas [CO2] below the skin into the cutaneous and subcutaneous region using a needle for therapeutic purposes thereby improving skin elasticity, reducing cellulite and fat cells and stimulates collagen production.
How does it work?
Carbon Dioxide also happens to be the signal for poor blood circulation in the body. When the blood cells are exposed to high concentrations of carbon dioxide, they stimulate the release of oxygen molecules at that site. In a sense, by injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just below the surface of the skin, we are tricking it into increasing the blood circulation to that area. Dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and stretch marks have all been shown to have some root cause in poor blood circulation.
The following are the conditions in which carboxytherapy has been proven to give outstanding results:
- Dark undereye circles
- Stretch mark redcution
- Cellulite and fat cells reduction
- Fine lines and wrinkles
For Dark under-eye circles:
Carboxytherapy can dramatically improve the appearance of dark under-eye circles. The majority of dark under-eye circles are caused by poor circulation beneath the lower eyelids [vascular pooling]. By injecting a small amount of carbon dioxide gas just beneath the skin of the lower eyelid, circulation was increased and dark under-eye circles were markedly improved. The treatment takes only five minutes, and is virtually painless and risk-free.
For Stretch mark:
Striae are usually found on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and breasts. Striae are seen in 90% of pregnant women due to a combination of hormonal factors along with increased stress on the collagen and elastin in the skin Although striae are thought to be a result of collagen rupture and breakdown during stretching of the skin. Furthermore, laser and light modalities are not safe for individuals with darker skin tones.
Carboxytherapy is the only treatment available for both old and new stretchmarks that visibly repairs the broken collagen and is safe for all skin types. Carboxytherapy causes the formation of new collagen and subsequently thickens the skin to improve the appearance of the stretch marks by rebuilding the collagen matrix.
For Cellulite and fat calls reduction:
Cellulite refers to the lumpy fat bulges. In Carboxytherapy, fat cells were ruptured by the CO2 gas while leaving the remaining skin structures and nerves unharmed.
It’s a painless procedure with barely any side effects.
