Our facilities are equipped with the latest technology in medical lasers and IPL.
There are a host of conditions that are amenable to medical laser treatment, including skin spots, acne and related lesions, alopecia (baldness), ruby-red spots, keratosis, warts, venous lakes as well as rejuvenation treatments.
Laser and IPL use intense light. Some of the medical lasers available at our facilities includes: Neodymium laser, non-ablative laser, or CO2 laser.
The way medical lasers work is by causing selective increased heat on the target tissues that causes selective photothermolysis, that is attacks the target lesion without damaging the surrounding tissue.
After an initial assessment of the location, affected surface area and type of lesion our specialist will apply a local anesthetic topical or otherwise, or might perform the procedure without the need for anesthesia in cases where the expected discomfort will be minimum to nil.
The procedure usually lasts from 15 to 30 minutes, is always an out-patient procedure. And you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities or go back to work.
Some treatments might require a 5-day skin recovery period, our specialist will provide you with further information.
