Laser Hair Reduction

Today, removing unwanted body hair is not only a worldwide trend, but also a basic necessity. Alternative methods for removing unwanted hair like, waxing, threading, shaving and bleaching do not provide a permanent solution, can be inconvenient and tedious.Successful treatment without risking patient injury requires the right equipment, physician skill, and sticking to an appropriate treatment regiment.

Laser hair reduction works by targeting the hair follicles thereby removing it with minimal damage to the surrounding skin. Cutis is the only center in the region with all four types of laser technology likeIPL, Alexandrite, Nd:YAG and Diode laser systems, which make us capable of treating any type of hair on different skin types. Grey hair is also treated with radiolysis.

We provide life term treatment packages that are custom made according to the patient needs. The patient is evaluated prior to each session to prescribe the appropriate energy and also identify any medical issues that indicate against laser treatment.

Skin resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that can restore the skin and treat many imperfections. The fractional laser produces tiny micro-thermal healing zones to form beneath the skin. This spurs the natural production of collagen and gives skin a more youthful appearance.

We use Fractional CO2and Erbium:YAG lasers for resurfacing, and this had revolutionized the management of acne scars, wrinkles, post traumatic and surgical scars. It is safe to be used on the face and body. The is a post-procedure downtime of five days after ablative laser resurfacing.

Alternatively, for those with busy work and social schedules that do not allow for extended recovery time, non ablative fractional resurfacing with Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency (MFR) and Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency (SFR) allows for less downtime.

IPL

These are light-based devices that target different cells to reduce pigmentation, scars, redness, wrinkles and textural abnormalities. It is also utilized for hair reduction. Each wavelength used is unique to a specific problem.

Pigmented lesions and birthmarks

Nevus of Ota, pigmented birthmarks, melasma and other types of pigmented lesions are treated with lasers that are chosen to selectively target pigment in the skin.

The settings of the laser and the treatment protocol are calibrated to achieve a good cosmetic result while avoiding skin discoloration.

Sun spots

Also known as freckles, these lesions become more pronounced through exposure to the sun. They are specifically treated with ruby-like versatile YAG (RuVY Touch) laser treatment.

Tattoo removal

As tattoos come in all shapes, shades and sites, the process of removal is also decided based on the colours of the tattoo, the depth, duration and layers. Multiple sessions are required for its complete removal and the current laser technologies allow us to treat tattoos with minimal or no scarring.

Pigmentation around the eyes (Dark circles)

This is a very common problem that affects both men and women from a very young age. Also known as periocularmelanosis, this is treated with lasers (Nd:YAG) alone or in combination with fillers and chemical peels.

Lasers for hair growth

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is safely used in both men and women for the treatment of several types of hair fall. Multiple sessions are placed a week apart.

LLLT has also shown beneficial effects for a variety of other medical conditions such as wound healing and joint pain relief. It is also used to support healing of the skin after various laser therapies.
