Laser Surgery - Know Its Common Types!

With the urge to remain and look young constantly on the rise, more and more people are moving towards cosmetic surgical options to retain their youthful looks. Laser therapy is one of the most commonly used procedures in cosmetic surgery. Read on to know additional information on the types of lasers and the various uses in cosmetic surgery.

How it works?

A laser unit produces a beam of high-energy, focused-intense light which selectively interacts with the various tissues in the skin. By altering the amount of light and the area of application, many medical conditions can be treated using laser therapy. While only laser is used in some cases, it could be used in combination with other products in some other people. The skin has an underlying layer of connective tissue which has collagen, elastin, and blood vessels. The laser acts on these and removes the superficial dead layers at the same time improving production of collagen and elastin. The result is youthful, glowing skin that is almost instant.

Types of laser surgery:

Laser is used in multiple ways on the skin.

  1. Laser skin resurfacing: For treating ageing issues like wrinkles, blemishes, and dark pigments, a beam of the laser is directed at the affected area. It acts on the collagen layer and the result is wrinkle-free skin that looks youthful and glows.
  2. Removal of skin lesions: For small lesions like birthmarks and warts, the blood vessels are usually affected. A beam of the laser is aimed at these lesions, and by cutting off blood supply to these, the lesions are removed and regrowth is prevented. Laser is also useful in treating spider veins and tattoos. Depending on the severity of the lesion, more than one session may be required. Another major advantage of the laser procedure is that it is done in the outpatient setting and does not require hospitalisation.
  3. Laser hair treatments: Laser is used both in hair removal and in the transplant process. In hair transplant process, the area of transplant is prepared to receive the transplant using laser. In hair removal process, the follicles are removed and therefore unwanted hair on the body is removed. This again may require multiple sessions depending on the quality of the hair.
  4. Types of cosmetic lasers: Carbon dioxide laser, Erbium laser, Nd:Yag laser, Pulsed-dye laser, intense pulsed laser, infrared, and radio frequency lasers are some commonly used lasers. There are constant developments in this ever-evolving field, and your cosmetic surgeon would be the right person to give you that information.

Also, having a detailed discussion with your surgeon on what to expect after a laser procedure is extremely essential. This will help set expectations for both the surgeon and the patient." In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment to lessen the effects of prolonged sun exposure, acne or aging on the skin such as wrinkles, blemishes, scars, blotches or lines. The treatment uses the technique of focusing pulsating, short light beams at the affected skin. The light beam removes the skin layer by layer with sharp precision. After the procedure, new skin cells develop which makes the skin tight and youthful-looking.

Laser skin resurfacing can be a stand-alone procedure, or done in combination with some other surgical cosmetic treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing is mainly of two types:

  1. CO2 Laser Resurfacing: CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser resurfacing is used to treat wrinkles, warts, scars, swollen oil glands, and other skin problems. This type of laser resurfacing uses fractionated carbon dioxide laser in a distinct pattern to remove fine layers of your skin using minimal heat which reduces the chances of heat damage. Recovery from CO2 laser resurfacing takes two weeks.
  2. Erbium Laser Resurfacing: Moderately deep wrinkles and lines on the hand, face, chest or neck is reduced by erbium laser resurfacing. The benefit of opting for erbium laser resurfacing is that it causes the least amount of burns on the surrounding tissue. Erbium laser resurfacing also causes less swelling, redness and bruising on the skin. Even the recovery time of it is faster than CO2 laser resurfacing.

Erbium laser resurfacing is recommended for people with darker skin.

The Procedure:
A dermatologist or plastic surgeon performs the procedure of laser resurfacing:

  1. During the procedure: The wrinkles in the vicinity of your mouth, eyes or forehead may be treated separately or the entire face may be treated. If only individual areas are treated, the doctor will use local anaesthesia to numb the skin. If the whole face is treated, the doctor will sedate you with general anaesthesia. Individual areas on the face take thirty to forty minutes to treat, but the entire face requires nearly two hours.
  2. After the procedure: After the procedure is completed, the treated areas on the skin will be bandaged. You will need to clean the treated areas and apply an ointment twenty four hours after the procedure. You must clean your face 4 to 5 times in a day. Petroleum jelly can be applied on the face to prevent scab formation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

Lasers In Dentistry! What Do I Need To Know?

When one hears the word lasers, the first thing that comes to mind is Star Wars. If only dentistry was as exciting as Star Wars! So now that we all agree on that, let’s see how lasers are changing dentistry and what we have to look forward to in the future. It’s actually some pretty cool stuff, even if you would probably rather be watching Star Wars.

There are several different types of lasers currently in use in dental clinics today.

Soft Tissue Lasers (Diode):

This is the typical laser you’ll see in a general dental clinic and is also the least expensive costing 1-4 lakh INR. It is only used for cutting soft tissue (ex. gum tissue). This type of laser doesn’t actually use the laser tip to cut tissue. It has a glass fiber than transmits the laser pulse which is charred and then heated up by the laser pulses. It is this heated glass tip that actually does the cutting. It isn’t as efficient in cutting tissue as say a scalpel would be but it makes up for that in the fact that there is little to no bleeding afterwards and the tissue heals beautifully. There are a couple of good applications for this type of laser:

  • Frenectomies (for example with tongue ties or a frenum between your top front teeth that contributes to the teeth wanting to spread apart)
  • Removing a small amount of gum tissue around a tooth before taking an impression for a crown
  • Stopping bleeding
  • Reduction in symptoms for cold sores and ulcers
  • Crown lengthening procedures for exposing tooth structure for crowns
  • Teeth Whitening procedures

Combined Hard and Soft Tissue Lasers (Carbon Dioxide, Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet aka Nd: YAG, and Er:YAG):

These types of lasers are the more cutting edge side of lasers in dentistry. They have the ability to cut both hard and soft tissue as well as some restorative materials. They can cut teeth, bone, and tissue. Each type has a slightly different application and usefulness. These lasers are also currently very expensive costing upwards of 35 lakh INR in some cases. This has limited their adoption significantly. One of the biggest benefits to these types of lasers is that the amount of anesthetic needed to numb a tooth is much more limited and in some cases not needed at all due to laser pulses effects on the nerve. Some current procedures that are performed with these types of lasers include:

  • Frenectomies – as explained above
  • Gingivectomies  – Excess gum tissue is removed for a better esthetic look
  • Laser assisted new attachment protocol (LANAP) – Periodontist’s often perform this procedure in which the laser is used to clean the pockets around teeth and in many cases it can help to regrow bone around teeth, which was previously impossible
  • Biopsies – Suspicious areas can be easily removed with a laser for evaluation by a pathologist.
  • Crown lengthening surgery – Bone is removed around a tooth to allow more space for a crown to be fitted to a tooth.
  • Preparation of teeth for cavities – These lasers can be used to remove decay and prepare teeth for fillings. It actually cuts the decayed area more readily due to the increased water content of those areas. It can’t cut amalgam or porcelain but does cut tooth structure and composite filling material.

As you must have gauged by now, the lasers find a versatile use in the realm of dentistry. They truly adhere to the "No Cut, No Stitch, No Blood" protocol, thus alleviating the fear of the patient. Next time you visit your dentist, just sneak around and ask for the lasers, if any and their utilities in dentistry. Good and upcoming dental clinics keep their technological standards at par with the international community by incorporating dental lasers in their practices. Give it a shot, at least once!

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Laser Hair removal is a medico-dermatological process to remove unwanted hair follicles by exposing the same to the pulses of laser light. The basic principle adopted for this is known as Selective Photothermolysis or SPTL. Specific wavelengths of light and pulse duration are applied on the targeted tissue. Melanin imparts color to the hair and skin. One type of melanin, known as Eumelanin imparts the black or brown color, whereas Pheomelanin imparts the red or blonde color. Laser is the most effective on dark and coarse hair.

The following are the types of Lasers used for hair removal:

Ruby laser: The primary laser for hair removal, it is most effective on fair skin and is well absorbed by the melanin. Because of small spot size and slow repetitive application, it becomes much expensive and uncomfortable.

  1. Alexandrite laser: It covers larger spot size and works faster on fair and olive complexions.
  2. Diode laser: With longer wavelength, it penetrates deeply into the skin. It is most suitable for darker skin but not for finer and lighter hair. Because of smaller spot size, treatment may take a lot of time.
  3. Nd: YAG Laser: With larger spot size and faster repetition rates, it is suitable for all types of skin, including tanned skin. However, it is less effective on fine and light hair.
  4. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): Emitting full wavelengths of light, this treats problems of skin pigmentation. It suits best for a fairer skin tone and darker hair.

Duration of Treatment: It takes about 4-6 sessions spaced four weeks apart.

Target time: The targeted hair follicles start falling within 10 to 14 days.

Areas suitable for treatment

  • Larger areas of skin can be treated.
  • It is important to know that hair grows in three phases; growing, resting and shedding. You can make your choice according to your skin’s pigmentation.

 In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

When And Why To Choose Laser for Acne?

When And Why To Choose Laser for Acne?

Human skin is prone to many problems like pimples, pigmentation, wrinkles and acne. Acne is the bane of an adolescent’s life. Yet it happens due to a common problem. Hair follicles on skin, arms and the torso, sometimes overproduce cells and become blocked. Due to this blockage, oil produced by tiny oil glands in the skin gets trapped and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, giving rise to acne.

There are two main types of acne - non-inflammatory and inflammatory. Examples of non-inflammatory acne are whiteheads and blackheads. Blackheads form when a clog or plug develops in the opening of hair follicles in your skin. Each follicle contains one hair and a sebaceous gland that produces oil, called sebum, which helps keep your skin soft. Dead skin cells and oils collect in the opening to the skin follicle, producing a bump called a 'comedone'. If the skin over the bump stays closed, the bump is called a whitehead. When the skin over the bump opens, exposure to the air causes it to look black and a blackhead forms. These are ugly but can be taken care of through common cosmetic procedures.

Inflammatory acne is not so easy to treat or hide. Usually, in this type of acne, the hair follicle wall ruptures and the fighter white blood cells rush into the spot, causing either a very prominent white, yellow or red sore to form or a pus-filled lesion which is damn ugly and leaves a lifelong scar on drying.

Acne Scar Removal-

That’s all about acne, now the treatment. Acne is partially a hormonally linked problem and it is also linked to inflammation. Adolescents suffer the most. Treatments include pills and creams.

But now lasers have become the treatment of choice for sufferers.

Lasers are the magic wands of plastic surgery. They work by emitting a ray of light which produces certain effects in the skin leading to the removal of acne and its scars, as well as skin tightening, and hair removal. Laser treats acne by shrinking oil glands and killing the bacteria that cause acne. They, apparently work on ’porphyrins’, compounds which are present inside acne-causing bacteria. So when porphyrins are targeted, they damage the bacterial wall killing the bacteria.

The kinds of lasers that doctors use for treating acne include Diode, Nd:YAG, IPL, Glass, and Pulsed Light and Heat Energy (LHE), as well as a new "vacuum" laser called ‘Isolaz’ which is extremely effective. There are reports that laser treatment may also reduce sebum (skin oil) levels in the skin which trap bacteria and cause acne in the first place.

The lows of laser for acne treatment are that it’s expensive and usually, requires multiple trips. Doctors usually recommend three treatments, about a month apart. This can go up if you have stubborn acne.

Laser resurfacing, a process that smoothes the top surface of the skin is also used for getting rid of acne scars. But once again it’s expensive and takes multiple sittings.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

All About Laser Hair Removal!

Unwanted hair is a major issue for many young people. Shaving or waxing the hair is tedious process, and can also be painful at times. Due to its many benefits, laser hair removal has become very popular amongst youngsters. In many cases, after three to eight sessions, permanent hair loss is observed. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of laser hair removal procedures performed.

What is the theory behind laser hair removal?
Laser technology is based on highly concentrated rays. These rays are concentrated on a specific part of your skin from where you wish to remove the hair. The highly concentrated light is directed to particular hair follicles in order to remove them. Although, permanent results or results that last a lifetime are never guaranteed, cases have been observed wherein after a few sessions, complete hair loss is observed.
Many types of laser removal procedures are available, among these, Neodymium YAG, diode, alexandrite, and intense pulsed light sources are well known.

Why should you choose laser hair removal?
Unwanted hair on your face, underarms, legs, arms or any other area can be easily removed using this procedure. Laser hair removal procedures offer you with a healthy and smooth skin free of unwanted hair. The laser used for hair removal target dark and bristly hairs without damaging the surrounding areas. Known for its speed, laser hair procedure has the ability to treat small areas in approximately one minute and less. These small areas include the upper lip region.

How long does it take?
Laser removal method is performed by skilled doctors. The doctors need to decide how many days and sittings will it take to get the procedure done depending upon the growth of hair in that specific area and also how much area of your skin is to be covered. Once the procedure is done, one may need to get it done in few years again depending upon the regrowth of hair on his/her body.

Difficulties of laser hair removal procedure:

  1. Laser hair procedures can at times cause hyper pigmentation of skin or darkening of skin. It can also cause hypo pigmentation, which causes lightening of skin colour at certain regions.
  2. Some people experience itchiness after the procedure has been completed.
  3. A major disadvantage of this treatment is that it can be quite expensive and unaffordable for the common people.
  4. It may leave scars or skin infections if not done by skilled or accomplished doctors.

Laser hair treatment is effective and comparatively more efficient on people who have light skin and dark hair. Generally, laser hair surgeries are done to remove unwanted hair on back, face, chest, neck, bikini area, shoulders, upper lip, chin etc. For successful results, one should get this procedure performed from a skilled doctor. If not done properly, it will leave marks/scars and damage your body.
