Why Choose Cosmetique for laser treatment?

The famous Cosmetique Institute of Dermatology, Laser, and Cosmetic Surgery was introduced in October 2015 in Lahore, Pakistan. And since then, it has been one of the first and only academic institutes all over Pakistan that is mainly devoted to providing the necessary education of post-graduate trainees and practicing clinicians in the various fields of dermatology. That too primarily includes a vast array of cosmetic surgery procedures like hair transplant, laser treatment, liposuction, plastic surgery, and many more. In addition to that, most importantly, this prominent institute is incredibly committed and dedicated to performing high-quality clinical research and basic science techniques employed for drug trials with special care and a focus on innovative therapies and molecular genetics.

Furthermore, the Cosmetique Institute is an exceptional regional center for maintaining several registries done for rare skin disorders like XerodermaPigmentosum, Epidermolysisbullosa, and many more few to the name. The main focus of the Cosmetique clinic is mainly placed on the different dermatological ailments that have a particular significance in the South Asian geographical region. That is primarily to promote the research on less prevalent diseases that are often ignored worldwide or are less funded by several mainstream research forums and international funding agencies.

Thus, among all the various dermatology clinics in Pakistan, the Cosmetique clinic is an outpatient specialist skincare center with a team of highly qualified and professional pathologists, dermatologists, skin specialists, research scientists, and many more. They all have the skills, experience, and expertise to diagnose, handle, and treat various skin conditions.

What if you are considering laser hair treatment for you?

Reading about various popular surgical and cosmetic procedures in Pakistan, especially, is like reading a foreign language that you can understand well. So, let’s decode the difficult terms and translate some of the commonly used medical linguistic words so that you can better understand what exactly is offered by any cosmetic treatment and what possible results you may have in the long run. So, let’s get started with the various treatment types readily available and offered by the popular Cosmetique clinic:

FACE TREATMENTS

LASER TREATMENTS

That is a type of surgery or treatment that readily helps reduce and eliminate unwanted facial hairs, marks, discoloration, and many more. This treatment generally employs the use of specific laser beams rather than tools, so it is a painless treatment.

Ablative vs. Nonablative Lasers

The word laser is an acronym (an abbreviation that uses the first letter of each word in a description to create a term.) Laser (L-A-S-E-R) stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simpler terms, a laser is a single-wavelength (one color of light) source of high-energy light, which can be accurately focused to transmit that light onto a very small area.

How Lasers Work

All About Laser Treatment

The word laser is actually a popular acronym that signifies that laser is a short abbreviation for

  • L – Light
  • A – Amplification
  • S – Stimulated
  • E – Emission
  • R – Radiation.

Thus, Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiations. In simpler words, we can explain and understand it as a laser is a single wavelength (one light color) source of exceptionally high light energy, which can be accurately focused wholly to transmit the entire light collected onto a small body area.

Types of Lasers at Cosmetique Clinic

There are two basic types of lasers:

  • Ablative lasers
  • Non-ablative lasers

The primary difference between the two treatments is that in ablative lasers, the light intensity only removes the top-most layer of the skin. While on the other hand, non-ablative lasers generally work by highly heating the underlying skin tissue (that too without harming the outermost surface) so that your body starts producing new and natural collagen.

How Does Laser Treatment Works?

Lasers are generally considered to be monochromatic. The word monochromatic derives from mono, meaning one/single, and chromo refers to light. So that indicates that a given laser usually emits only a single kind of light with only one wavelength/color or light.

Lasers work well in cosmetic applications through a unique process named “selective photo thermolysis.” When broken down into its parts, this term gives a very fancy meaning as photo refers to the frequency of light modulation and thermo indicates the production of heat in a specific region of the body and correspond lysis means to break down.

Thus, we can say that in the entire laser treatment, the wavelength of the light beam falling on a specified region must be in sync with the color of the targeted area, which needs to be addressed. Whether you have unsightly broken red capillaries, dark brown spots or freckles, or some other kind of undesirable skin condition and uneven skin toning, you can cure all such problems with laser treatment.

Why So Many Different Types of Lasers?

The two basic types of lasers can be further broken down into many subcategories of laser types and into literally hundreds of variations and brand names which fit into these subclassifications.
The main differences between the types of lasers have to do with wavelength. In other words, different laser wavelengths (colors of light) target different skin issues. Therefore, a variety of lasers are needed to treat a variety of skin concerns.1 For this reason, a combination of several different lasers may be recommended by your surgeon to address all of the problems that you may have. An explanation of the differences between these different laser types could get very lengthy, technical and rather confusing, so we will focus here on what types of cosmetic issues are best treated by the various laser types.

To do this, the wavelength of the light beam must be in sync with the color of the target which is to be addressed, whether that be brown spots, unsightly red broken capillaries or some other undesirable skin condition.

Different Kinds of Laser Treatment for Different Cosmetic Uses

Fine Lines and Wrinkles
In order to treat the signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, uneven skin tones, and dark patches, usually, a combination of skin tightening and skin resurfacing procedures is most commonly recommended by the best dermatologists in Lahore, Pakistan. Both of these treatment procedures can be readily accomplished with a more ablative and aggressive laser, such as Erbium laser or CO2 laser. Among them, the COS laser is also frequently utilized to remove and reduce skin tags, moles, and warts. Also, it can be employed for cutting the skin in different laser-assisted surgical processes. While, a few pulsed dye lasers have nowadays also shown massive success and noticeable results, along with light-based treatments and less aggressive non-lasers such as LED photo-facials and IPL.
Skin Tightening Treatment
Most cosmetic laser treatments provide superficial tightening to some extent because they produce a controlled skin allergy that encourages the natural production of collagen in the body. However, CO2 laser types are the best possible choice for all for more skin tightening results. Moreover, there has also been immense success and reliability seen by utilizing light-based or non-laser treatments such as Thermage radio-frequency based systems of some Titan infrared devices.
Pigmented Lesions
The fractional and pulse dye lasers are the most commonly utilized laser treatment for treating pigmented lesions such as age spots, melasma, sun spots, sun tan coloration, and several other forms of hyperpigmentation. In addition, some non-laser and light-based treatments such as IPL might also work in such a case.
Vascular Lesions
The vascular lesions condition includes all the broken blood vessels that become prominent overtime on the face. In addition, these also include unsightly spider nevi, hemangiomas, spider veins on the legs, specific birthmarks like port wine stains, and many more. IPL laser treatment is considered the most effective choice for all such kinds of skin irregularities. The reason behind this is that this procedure is minimally invasive. Also, some other popular treatments for such vascular lesions include diode lasers and Nd: YAG lasers.
Precancerous Lesions
Almost all the best surgeons in Lahore, Pakistan, agree that cancerous lesions of any kind should be immediately removed from the body via a scalpel (it is a knife used in most surgeries) to ensure complete lesions removal along with clear borders.Besides making sure that the skin cancer has clear margins after the laser treatment, that assures that a pathologist gets a cancerous tissue sample to determine the cause of the lesion and how dangerous it was.Thus, lasers are regularly suggested for removing all the precancerous growth conditions, such as actinic keratoses, right before they become malignant. That is so that they may work as a preventive measure against deadly skin cancer.Moreover, ablative lasers such as erbium: YAG and CO2 lasers are most commonly chosen to remove such precancerous lesions altogether.
Tattoos
The high-quality switched lasers types and ND: YAG constantly remain the most popular choices of laser treatment, particularly for tattoo removal. Moreover, a few successful cases have also been seen by the IPL lasers.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment
The safety and success of hair removal laser treatment are significantly dependent on the kind of pigment present in both the hairs and skin of the patient under treatment. For darker skin-toned patients, mostly Nd: YAG and diode lasers are suggested. While on the other hand, IPL lasers are proven most effective for patients with lighter skin tones.
Treatment for acne and acne scars
Acne and its scars are among the most common skin problems that most women face at any stage in their lives. Although most recent development procedures such as functional lasers, erbium: YAG, and many non-ablative lasers have significantly shown great success with superficial scarring, CO2 laser consistently remains the standard gold treatment for deeper acne scars. Moreover, LED technology laser treatment has been proven the most effective treatment for frequently occurring active acne.
