Overview

Laser - Treatment, Procedure And Side Effects

What is the treatment?

A relatively new form of medical treatment, laser therapy makes use of focused light. The full form of LASER is light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In this type of treatment, the light is effectively tuned, using specific wavelengths to create controlling beams.

As a form of medical treatment, the laser is used for precision, wherein specific areas of the body are subjected to the beam in order to prevent the surrounding area from damage. As compared to traditional forms of surgery, laser treatment results in less pain and faster recovery. But it can be expensive and multiple sessions may be necessary.

Laser therapy is used to treat a number of medical problems like-

  • Malignant or non-malignant tumors and polyps: They are either shrunk or completely destroyed.
  • Cancer symptoms
  • Kidney stones
  • Treat detached retina
  • Vision improvement
  • Nerve pain of the back

Laser treatment is also a popular cosmetic procedure, used to remove warts and birthmarks as well as sun spots. Laser treatment for hair removal is also very popular. Many individuals also opt for laser therapy to get rid of tattoos and wrinkles on the face.

How is the treatment done?

Before undergoing Laser Treatment one needs to ensure that they understand the implications of the therapy. Doubts and questions should be cleared with the doctor before undergoing the treatment. Pre-treatment planning should be done to ensure that someone is available to drive you home and you have enough time to recover thereafter.

Certain medications may be discontinued a few days prior to the commencement of the treatment process. This is done to prevent the effect of blood thinners.

The technique of laser therapy that is used for treatment generally depends on the problem that is being treated. For instance, in the case of laser therapy to treat a tumor, an endoscope is first inserted into the body to view the tumor. The laser is then aimed at the tumor and concentrated light beams are used to destroy or shrink the tumor.

In the case of cosmetic treatments, the laser is applied directly to the skin.

Different lasers are used to treat different medical conditions, for instance, carbon dioxide lasers treat superficial cancers. Skin cancer is an example of superficial cancer.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

The eligibility for a particular type of laser surgery depends on various factors like age, sex, health and lifestyle as well as the cost of treatment.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

Laser therapy should be opted for after detailed consultation with the doctor. Depending on your age and health, he may or may not recommend the treatment. For example, young adults below the age of 18 years are generally not eligible for a laser eye surgery.

Are there any side effects?

Laser therapy does involve a few risk factors. For instance, skin laser therapy can result in bleeding, pain, redness of the skin, the onset of infection and even scarring.

Some types of laser treatments are done under the influence of anesthesia, which involves risk factors like pneumonia, sudden heart attack or stroke and extreme confusion after regaining consciousness.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Post laser treatment, the guidelines for recovery are quite similar to other traditional forms of surgeries. Rest should be taken for the first few days after the treatment. Pain and swelling are common. Painkillers are generally prescribed to help deal with the discomfort.

Recovery time generally varies according to the procedure. Doctors’ advice should be strictly followed. In the case of skin laser therapy, the treated area should be cleaned with water. The ointment should be applied properly. Ice packs can be used for relief from discomfort and swelling.

How long does it take to recover?

Laser therapy generally involves multiple sessions, thus it takes a long period of time for recovery.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Depending on the type of laser treatment one is seeking, it may cost between the range of Rs 1500- Rs 30000.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The results of the treatment are not quite permanent and multiple sessions may be required.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Traditional surgical procedures may be opted for instead of laser treatment.

Laser Hair Reduction - How To Prepare For It?

Laser Hair Reduction - How To Prepare For It?

Laser is an accepted mode of treatment for many disorders such as those of the skin. It is also increasingly being used to remove unwanted hair on your face, underarms, the pelvic area, chest etc. People who do not want to shave, wax or tweeze, go in for the laser removal of hair. During this procedure, small bursts of laser energy are let out on the affected areas of your skin. The hair follicles absorb the energy and in the process, get burnt. There are very few chances of their re-growth.

There are 3 main benefits from this mode of treatment

  1. Focused action: If you are imagining that laser treatment involves sending a broad beam of light then it is not true. The laser is a very highly focused stream of energy that treats only the selected area and leaves out the surrounding patch. So, do not worry, only the targeted hair will get affected and not the neighboring skin.
  2. Speed: Laser treatment for reduction or removal of hair is amazingly quick. Each laser burst lasts for just a fraction of a second. If you want the hair to be removed from the upper lip area, then the treatment will last for just a minute. Reduction of hair from the back of the legs, thighs etc. takes nearly an hour.
  3. Predictability: Many patients have reported a permanent removal of their hair after four to seven sessions of laser treatment. No wonder that more and more people across the world are opting for laser treatment of unwanted hair.

How to prepare for laser hair reduction
While laser hair reduction is fast and precise, it is advisable that you follow certain steps to make it more effective.

  1. Always consult your dermatologist before going in for this treatment. Your skin type may or may not respond to laser. There may be a certain complication that only your doctor can foresee and predict and advise accordingly. Also, check the credentials of the technician who is going to perform the laser surgical on you.
  2. Avoid using electrolysis, waxing and other superficial procedures for at least six weeks before going in for laser treatment. The laser targets the roots of the hair permanently. If the same hair has already been treated by waxing etc., the effects of laser treatment will be significantly reduced.
  3. No skin exposure before and after for six weeks. Unless you do this, the effectiveness of laser treatment for hair reduction will be greatly diminished.

Recovering from laser treatment
After the laser treatment, your affected skin will look and feel as if it has been overexposed to the sun. To mitigate these symptoms, you need to apply moisturisers and cool compresses. Wear sunscreen and make-up if your facial hair has been treated by laser. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation - When Is It Required?

With menopause comes a steep decline in the levels of estrogen in the body. This deficiency of estrogen can lead to various physical changes in the vagina and the urinary tract. These changes can have adverse effects on the sexual health and well-being of women. Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation therapy aims to remedy these changes and improve sexual function and the quality of life in women.

It can also cause problems with the urinary tract which includes urinary incontinence, painful urination and infections. The irregularity in the levels of estrogen due to pregnancy and child birth can also cause vaginal discomfort and painful sexual intercourse due to a lack of lubrication. Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation therapy provides estrogen treatment in localized regions to counteract these physical changes.

How is it done?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation therapy uses a CO2 fractional laser which acts gently on the walls of the vaginal through a scanner. It forms micro-lesions on the treated areas which help in collagen production. It equilibrates and organizes the various components of the urogenital structures and vaginal mucosa.

2-3 treatment sessions that occur 4-6 weeks apart is usually recommended, followed by an annual treatment. You can resume your daily activities after a day or two.

What are the benefits?
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation helps nourish and hydrate the vaginal mucosa. It tones and strengthens the epithelium making it thicker and more elastic. It helps maintain the ph balance of the vagina. It also helps reduce the risks of infections by maintaining the natural protective barrier of the vagina. The vaginal tissues are enhanced by the therapy at the urethral aperture. This helps treat the problems with urinary tract which include urinary incontinence and painful urination.

Skin Tightening And Brightening Procedure
Hi! Everyone,

Dr Anvika here the Dermatologist practicing in Pitampura, Delhi and today we are going to talk about the skin tightening and brightening procedure by technology called microneedling RF.

So very first, I am going to demonstrate the steps and then we are going to talk about the frequently asked questions. So today we have a beautiful lady in her 60 s who wants to get the skin tightening and brightening done. The very first we are going to clean the entire face, so after cleaning the face we will apply the numbing cream, so the numbing cream is applied all over the face and it is left for an hour so that the procedure is rendered very comfortable for the patients. We apply the numbing cream all over the face so that the procedure is really rendered comfortable for the patients. So we stretch the skin and we actually start giving the shots. You can see the patient is comfortable like this we will cover the entire face and the neck. The person can get it done on hands, person can get it on the chest, on the buttocks, so wherever, a person is looking for skin tightening and brightening they can get this microneedling RF procedure done. So after the procedure there is mild swelling in redness which remains for around 2 hours and after that person is ready to go back to work or to party or wherever. So as you can see in this procedure, the needles actually get inside the skin and release the radio frequency energy. So that's why this procedure is very effective because we are actually getting inside the skin to bring about a real change. So, microneedling radio frequency is an excellent procedure, to get the skin tightening and brightening. How does it work? The microneedles, actually get inside the skin and releases the radio frequency energy. Now as wall is made up of brakes skin is made up of elastic and collagen fibres, once the radio frequency energy gets inside the skin it tells the skin to produce new collagen and elastin, as the skin slowly forms the new collagen and elastin the skin gradually titans and brightens. How many sessions are required? Around three sessions done at once in a month interval are required. How much time does each section takes? Each section takes around 2 hours. Now is it painful? When the procedure is done after the prior application of the numbing cream? Now once the skin is numbed, the procedure is rendered pretty comfortable for everyone. Is it really safe? Well all this procedures are US FDA approved for safety and efficacy, it s really safe provide it done using a US FDA approved machine and done under a doctor supervision who has the right expertise for the machines. Now once the results are attain for how long do they last? After the three sessions the result last for around 1 to 2 years depending upon the person's life style and is getting the repeat session done necessity, not at all. Once after you get the desired results after 2 years suppose the results vein of you are back to 0 but never minus one that is your skin won't look even more haggard if you don't opt the procedure again. So choosing the procedure again is entirely out of choice and never out of dependency.

So finally in case you are looking for that instant brightness and skin tightening and safe and effective manner do contact us on the given address. Thank you.

Laser For Birthmarks
Hi,

I am Dr PK Talwar, cosmetic surgeon, I have been doing cosmetic surgery for last 28 years and we were among the first ones who introduced Laser hair removal in India and then Laser for birthmarks in India.

When we talk about the birthmarks, the laser for birthmarks there are basically commonest two kinds of birthmarks one is black birthmark like you seen Nevus of Ota or Becker s Nevus and second is vascular birthmarks, like port wine stains or then port wine stains that is very common it is also known as hemangioma, hemangioma are different kinds and different kinds of hemangiomas are treated by different laser-like pulsed dye laser, long pulsed ND-YAG etc. Now coming to the first part that is the black birthmarks, so commonest which we are getting is Nevus of Ota in this there is pigment on one side or both side of faces in certain cases and even in the conjunctiva. This can be very disheartening to a patient, when I introduced this laser initially I tried in 2003 I had a young beautiful lady who had the birthmark on the face one side of the face and she has around 30 years of age but by the time she came to me she was already divorced because of the problem of the birthmark. We gave her 10 to 12 sittings and the birthmark Nevus of Ota 95% or you can be gone and she was very happy, only regret she has was Dr. Talwar I should have come to you earlier, but I told her it is not possible because the laser has come recently so even she had come to me earlier we could not her done anything. So that is one of the cases which is still I remember because it was my one of the first cases and I think best possible results the patient is very very grateful and now we have been treating this kind of problem very commonly Nevus of Ota the results have been very good. The same lasers actually this is Q switch laser, the black pigmentation, now the same laser can be used for freckles, for removal of the tattoos and this Becker s Nevus etc. So the other birthmarks are vascular birthmarks which we call it Port wine stain and the pulsed dye laser is used for that, 2 sittings for black pigments pulsed dye laser is for the vascular or the red birthmarks. Now the difference between these lasers is that the wavelength is different pulsed dye laser is one of the most expensive lasers to buy and the most expensive lasers to maintain, but the results are very rewarding with pulsed dye laser, other modalities are not good as that but pulsed dye laser is the treatment for port wine stain and red birthmarks and we can expect in such cases 70% improvement. We had many patients who have got it done and they are very grateful, we can do Rosacea, Rinofima or facial veins, spider veins etc. we can treat them and patients are really very very happy. So I think the medical science is evolving and the day will come, we will be able to treat 100% of such patients and I suggest strongly that don't go to coeliac because I had a patient with the red birthmark and she went to a coeliac and he applied some sort of acid or what and they burnt the skin. Go to a qualified plastic surgeon or a qualified Dermatologist who is having pulsed dye laser then only you get it done otherwise no and the best wavelength for that is pulsed dye laser is 595 nanometers.

Thank you very much.
