Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment Done by Dr. Megha Modi
Fractional Laser Resurfacing

What is fractional resurfacing?
Fractional resurfacing is an advanced technology in which only a small fraction of the skin receives the laser light. The laser delivers a series of high precision microbeams that create narrow, deep columns of tissue penetration well below the epidermis (skin surface) and into the dermis, while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue from damage. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy skin cells.

What conditions does fractional resurfacing treat?
Fractional resurfacing is very effective on fine lines and wrinkles (including around the eyes), age or sun spots, acne scars, surgical scars and sun damage.

What is the recovery time?
The healthy cells in unlasered areas promote rapid healing of the entire treatment area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects. The result is softer, smoother and healthier skin without a prolonged healing period.

Tattoo Removal in Dwarka by Dr. Navjot Singh Arora
Tattoo/Birthmark Removal
A tattoo design is formed by injecting ink and pigments into the dermis of skin through pricking method.

Though the idea of getting inked sounds fun, it happens quite often that people regret the choice of a permanent tattoo.

The good news is that it is now possible to remove the permanent tattoo fully/partially by latest treatment options.

Treatment Available
At Dermaheal Skin and Hair Clinic, permanent tattoo removal is done by most advanced Q- SWITCHED Nd : YAG LASER which is safe as well as effective. This laser is also used to reduce the appearance of:
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation
Freckles and Lentigenes removal
Nevus of ota
Pigmentary Demarcation Lines
Birthmark

About The Procedure
Before beginning the treatment, numbing cream is applied to make the procedure more comfortable for the patient.
Laser is guided over the selected area of the tattoo that emits pulses of light energy which is absorbed by the pigments, heating and breaking them into smaller fragments. These particles are absorbed by our immune system which are then excreted through the lymphatic system. As these fragments are recognized as foreign substance/waste by our body, they are discarded by natural means of excretion (urine, sweat and fecal matter).
Number of sessions required depends on the shape, size and area of the tattoo. However usually minimum of 3-4 sessions are needed to visualize the difference in results.
The interval between each session ranges from 3-5 weeks.
Mild swelling and redness may occur post procedure, for which topical medications are prescribed.

Tattoo Removal In Vasundhara | Tattoo Removal In Indirapuram | Tattoo Removal In Vaishali - Twachaaclinic
Q-Switch for Tattoo/ Nevus Removal

Extremely short pulse, Q-switched (QS) laser systems can successfully lighten or eradicate a variety of pigmented lesions. Pigmented lesions that are treatable include freckles and birthmarks including some congenital melanocytic naevi, naevi of Ota/Ito and Becker naevi. The QS laser systems can also selectively destroy tattoo pigment without causing much damage to the surrounding skin. The altered pigment is then removed from the skin by scavenging white blood cell.

How will my skin react to the treatment?
During treatment the tattoo will appear to have a white surface layer which is the first initial sign that the process is working. This is caused by the breaking down of pigment and the reaction to the laser, this colouring will subside within a couple of hours. Immediately after treatment the surrounding skin is likely to show a red discoloration and a small amount of pinpoint bleeding may occur. The feeling can be compared to a mild sunburn where swelling and redness may last for one week. Over the next few days a small amount of blistering may occur followed by a scab or thin crust, which should be left untouched to eventually fall off. The skin will remain red for a few days to a week or two and begin to heal on its own.

All of these reactions are a normal response to the removal process and the way in which the body begins to heal.

How many treatments will I need?
Generally the average required number of treatments varies from 3-8 depending on various indications. Dr. Megha Modi will guide you according to your skin condition.

What are post treatment care?
Post treatment care is vital to ensure the treated area heals effectively to achieve your desired results. The following steps should be carefully executed:

Apply an aloe vera or antiseptic ointment to the treatment area
Avoid direct sun exposure during the entire healing process and ensure adequate SPF sun cream is applied and/or clothing is covering the area (this includes tanning beds).
Avoid prolonged exposure to water and avoid excessive heat in the skin for 48 – 72hours post treatment. Excess moisture will hinder the wound/scab from healing
Avoid scratching, picking or touching the direct or surrounding area
Cold packs or a cool cloth may be applied if further discomfort persists

Does tattoo removal hurt?
A client can expect to feel a level of discomfort however pain is an individual experience. Most may compare the pain to a flick from an elastic band.

Thread Lifting In Dwarka
What exactly is Thread Lift
Thread lifting is one of the finest procedure to redefine the facial contours and reverse some Signs Of Ageing which can help you in creating a remarkable difference to attain a youthful face.

Thread lifting is a revolutionizing alternative to surgical face lift, as it is minimally invasive so it brings new hope for those who are afraid of traditional surgeries.

It is a non -surgical and quick procedure with minimum downtime and no major risks involved.

Wonders of Thread Lifting

Thread lifting helps in elevating the sagging skin of cheeks, neck, chin and jaws. So this option of anti ageing treatment is a boon especially for those who are in their middle ages ( mid thirties to late fifties )

Somber expressions due to loose, dull and tired looking skin are replaced making the patient feel happy and stress free about their facial appearance.

How it works
So as to tighten the skin, strands of specially designed threads are inserted into the facial skin with the help of fine needles along different directions in order to create a mesh of threads resulting in firm and elevated tissues.

These barbed threads are dissolvable and the effects are long lasting (usually up to 2-3 yrs). The Polydiaoxanone threads are placed in the subcutaneous plane under the ptosed facial skin.

Local anesthetic agent is applied so there is minimum discomfort to the patient.

Thread lifting enhances production of elastin and collagen thereby increasing the durability of the results due to collagen remodelling.

Skin White Patches and Vitiligo Treatment in Dwarka - Dermaheal
Vitiligo Treatment In Dwarka
What is Vitiligo
Vitiligo is a form of a chronic skin disorder which can easily be diagnosed by its characteristic appearance of white patches on the skin as the skin begins to lose its pigmentation.

These blotches can occur on any part of skin, however most common areas are face, neck, hands, eyes, mouth and foot.

Vitiligo can be treated by medications, phototherapy, laser and in certain cases surgical transplantation (tissue grafting and cellular grafting) is also advisable.

What causes vitiligo?
Melanin is the pigment which determines the color of our skin and hair.
The cells responsible for producing melanin (Melanocytes) are unable to function in case of Vitiligo thus causing loss of color of skin.
These white areas can either be localized or can continue to grow and are easily noticeable.
Melanocytes can be reintroduced to the affected areas via various methods to treat vitiligo.

Impact Of Vitiligo On Patients
Though vitiligo does not cause any serious impact on patient’s overall physical health and life expectancy, it can adversely affect patient’s psychological well-being.
Patient’s often feel insecure and anxious about their appearance which results in the development of antisocial behavior.
Younger patients are under constant emotional stress.
Mixed emotions of shame and fear often leads to depression.


Role Of Phototherapy
Derma heal Skin and Hair Clinic offers its patients the latest and best possible treatment modalities
We are equipped with a Narrowband UV-B (NB-UVB) chamber which works on whole body upto a great extent in cases of Generalized Vitiligo.
NB-UVB is an upright in-office booth which has a number of lamps that emit ultraviolet light thereby inducing re-pigmentation.
This device can be used in cases of both adults as well as children and does not cause any major side effects.
This treatment procedure is safe for both adults as well as children and generally requires 2-4 sessions weekly.
Phototherapy when combined with medications yield satisfactory results. Usually, prolonged treatments are required to attain better results.

Benefits Of Phototherapy
Significant improvement in the quality of life has been observed in the patients of generalized vitiligo undergoing phototherapy when combined with medications.
With phototherapy going on, the required doses of medicines gradually decreases thus decreasing the chances of long term side effects of medicines.
Patients experience a boost in their self-esteem as they keep on witnessing better results per session.
Phototherapy aids to prevent the formation of new patches thereby helping patients regain the confidence to face the world.

EXCIMER THERAPY
Excimer Therapy is an advanced technology that helps to treat skin diseases like vitiligo, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis which are usually difficult to treat conditions as there are very limited treatment options available for such skin conditions. This therapy is gentle as well as effective when followed with strict continuation.

The Excimer laser delivers a concentrated beam of UVB light through a hand piece directly to the white patches on the patient’s skin.

Laser Hair Reduction in Dwarka With Experienced Dermatologist Dr. Navjot Singh Arora
Laser Hair Reduction In Dwarka
Gone are the days of waxing, threading, epilating and hair removal creams, Laser hair removal is the latest and most advanced method of hair reduction and offers several benefits over the other methods



How it works?
Laser emits a concentrated beam of light which is absorbed by melanin (pigment present in the hair).

This light energy further converts into heat energy resulting in the destruction of hair follicles thereby preventing the growth of hair in future. However multiple sessions along with maintenance sessions are required as only the hair in their growth phase are actively targeted by the laser at a time.

About the Procedure
Triple wavelength diode laser used at Dermaheal is U.S. FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) approved, to ensure better results in fewer sessions.
A diode laser with 810nm is the gold standard for hair reduction.
After shaving and marking the area to be treated, cooling gel is applied before giving laser shots
There may be a warm sensation in some areas and pin-prick sensation in others where the hair is thick and coarse. Cooling the skin again after laser shots, further makes the sessions more comfortable.
The time required for the treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated.
The intervals between each session depends on the growth of hair (ranging from a few weeks to a few month).
As the number of sessions progress, the gap between each session keeps on increasing.

What to expect?
Around 80-90% hair reduction is expected after 6-8 sessions, especially in female patients.
More sessions are required in male patients.
Every subsequent session results in delayed hair growth and reduced density of hair.
Laser hair reduction can be done either on small sections or on full body on both men and women.
Coarse hair decrease in number and even if some of them remain, they turn fine and thin which are easily bleachable.
Maintenance sessions may be required varying from case to case.

Get rid of unwanted hair with laser hair reduction and say hello to your hair free skin.
