1. Breast augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

1.breast augmentation
Augmentation Mammaplasty –
Breast augmentation, colloquially known as a "boob job" or "breast aug," is a cosmetic procedure involving the use of breast implants or fat transfer to increase breast size. It is sought for various reasons, such as restoring volume after weight loss or pregnancy, achieving a more rounded breast shape, and addressing natural asymmetry. The procedure, also called augmentation mammoplasty, can contribute to enhanced self-image and confidence by increasing fullness and projection while improving the balance of breast and hip contours. Breast implants may also be utilized in breast reconstruction following mastectomy or injury. However, it's essential to understand the limitations of breast augmentation; it does not correct severe breast sagging, for which a breast lift may be necessary either concurrently with augmentation or through a separate operation, a decision that your plastic surgeon will guide you through. It's crucial to approach breast augmentation with realistic expectations, acknowledging potential risks and considering alternative options, while consulting with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to ensure informed decision-making and optimal outcomes.

3. Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Breast Lift

A breast lift, medically referred to as mastopexy, is a procedure designed to elevate the breasts by eliminating excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue, thereby reshaping and providing support for a rejuvenated breast contour.
Recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal a 70% increase in breast lifts since 2000, surpassing breast implants by a 2-to-1 ratio. Additionally, a breast lift can address issues such as enlarged areolas that may develop over time.
This transformative surgery can breathe new life into your figure, delivering a more youthful and uplifted breast profile. The natural aging process, along with factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, gravity, and heredity, can contribute to changes in breast shape and firmness. A breast lift effectively addresses these concerns.
It's essential to note that while breast lift surgery can restore a youthful appearance, it doesn't significantly alter breast size or enhance the upper part of the breasts. For those desiring fuller breasts, a combination of breast lift and augmentation surgery is recommended. Conversely, individuals seeking smaller breasts may consider a combination of breast lift and reduction surgery. The decision to undergo breast lift surgery should be based on individual goals and preferences, with consultation from a qualified plastic surgeon.

2. Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Breast Reduction
Reduction Mammaplasty –
Breast reduction surgery is a transformative procedure involving the removal of skin and breast tissue, followed by reshaping and lifting to achieve a more balanced and smaller bust size. While the decision to undergo breast reduction may pose a challenge for many women initially, those who proceed often describe it as one of the most empowering choices they've made for their overall well-being.
Women pursue breast reduction surgery with diverse motivations, all geared towards enhancing their overall quality of life:
1.Boosted Confidence and Self-Expression: Post-surgery, many women express heightened confidence and a more profound sense of comfort within their bodies.
2.Simplified Shopping Experience: Discovering well-fitting clothes becomes a breeze, expanding options for women to shop at a wider array of stores.
3.Relieved Back Pain: Smaller breasts typically translate to a substantial reduction in back pain, providing women with increased vitality throughout their daily activities.
4.Freedom from Bra Discomfort: The removal of excess breast weight commonly results in a significant decrease in discomfort associated with bra straps.
5.Facilitated Exercise Regimens: Women who previously faced discomfort due to overly large breasts can now engage in physical activities more comfortably.
6.Diminished Skin Irritation: Concerns related to skin irritation under the breasts, often associated with larger sizes, are significantly alleviated after breast reduction surgery.
7.Improved Respiratory Comfort: Smaller, more proportionate breasts contribute to a sense of ease in breathing for many women.
In essence, breast reduction surgery not only addresses physical discomfort but also has a profound positive impact on emotional well-being, enabling women to lead more confident, comfortable, and active lives.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation (Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting)

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting

Fat transfer breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that involves using liposuction to harvest excess fat from specific areas of the body, purifying it, and then injecting it into the breasts. This method is ideal for individuals seeking a subtle increase in breast size and a more natural aesthetic.
The process includes the following stages:
1.Liposuction: Unwanted fat is removed from donor sites like the abdomen or thighs through liposuction.
2.Purification: The extracted fat undergoes purification to eliminate impurities and excess fluids.
3.Injection: The refined fat is strategically injected into the breasts, enhancing volume and achieving the desired contour.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a preferred choice for those desiring a modest change in breast size while prioritizing a natural appearance. It's important to manage expectations, as this procedure may not deliver the same level of size increase as traditional breast augmentation with implants.
Recent research has explored different aspects of fat transfer breast augmentation, including techniques like pre-expansion for successful mega-volume fat transfer and its potential as an alternative to breast implants. Some studies even discuss innovative techniques claiming to double breast size using the patient's own fat. However, individual outcomes can vary, and it's crucial to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to assess suitability and discuss realistic expectations before opting for fat transfer breast augmentation.

1.Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

1.Arm Lift
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to address several concerns:
1.Reduction of Excess Sagging Skin: The procedure targets and minimizes the presence of drooping skin in the upper arms.
2.Tightening and Smoothing of Supportive Tissue: The underlying supportive tissue, which defines the contour of the upper arm, is tightened and smoothed during the surgery.
3.Reduction of Localized Fat Pockets: The surgical intervention also addresses localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.
Factors such as weight fluctuations, aging, and hereditary influences can contribute to the development of a sagging and drooping appearance in the upper arms. Importantly, this condition is often resistant to improvement through exercise alone.
Arm lift surgery may be a suitable option for individuals experiencing sagging or laxity in the underside of their upper arms, characterized by excess skin and fat. If you find that your upper arms appear loose and full due to these factors, an arm lift could be a transformative solution to restore a more toned and contoured appearance. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon can help determine if this procedure aligns with your aesthetic goals and individual circumstances.

3. Body Contouring (Skin Removal After Major Weight Loss)

Body Contouring
   Skin Removal After Major Weight Loss
Substantial weight loss, whether achieved through weight loss surgery or lifestyle changes, offers numerous health benefits. However, it often brings the challenge of excess sagging skin and tissues lacking the elasticity to adapt to the reduced body size.
Surgical body contouring emerges as a transformative solution following significant weight loss, addressing the removal of surplus sagging skin and fat while enhancing the shape of the underlying support tissue. The outcome is a more proportioned appearance with smoother contours.
Tailored for individuals who have undergone major weight loss, body contouring procedures include:
Arm Lift: Correcting sagging of the upper arms.
Breast Lift: Addressing sagging and flattened breasts.
Facelift: Correcting sagging in the mid-face, jowls, and neck.
Lower Body Lifts: Correcting sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, and inner and outer thighs.
Medial Thigh Lift: Correcting sagging of the inner thigh.
Tummy Tuck: Correcting the apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen.
These procedures not only remove excess skin and fat but also enhance overall shape and proportion, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential to determine the most suitable combination of procedures based on individual needs and goals.

2. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck surgery, also referred to as abdominoplasty, is a procedure designed to eliminate surplus fat and skin while, in most cases, restoring weakened or separated muscles, resulting in a smoother and firmer abdominal profile.
Despite our efforts through exercise and weight control, achieving a flat and well-toned abdomen can sometimes prove challenging. Even individuals with a normal body weight may develop protruding or sagging abdomens, commonly attributed to factors such as aging, heredity, pregnancy, prior surgeries, and significant weight fluctuations.
It's important to note that a tummy tuck is not intended as a substitute for weight loss or a comprehensive exercise program. While the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, maintaining a stable weight is crucial for sustaining a positive outcome. Significant weight fluctuations can diminish the long-term benefits. Therefore, individuals planning substantial weight loss or contemplating future pregnancies are advised to postpone a tummy tuck.
Additionally, it's essential to understand that a tummy tuck cannot address stretch marks, although there may be some improvement if they are situated on areas of excess skin slated for removal during the procedure. Careful consideration and consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon are recommended for individuals contemplating a tummy tuck to ensure realistic expectations and optimal results.

4.Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery, also known as thighplasty, is a transformative procedure designed to reshape the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. The goal is to achieve smoother skin and enhance the proportionate contours of the thighs and lower body. When conventional methods such as fitness and weight control fall short of achieving desired results—particularly in obtaining firmer, more youthful-looking thighs that harmonize with the overall body image—a surgical thigh lift may be a suitable option. What thigh lift surgery can't do: Thigh lifts are not exclusively aimed at removing excess fat. Liposuction alone is effective for areas where skin elasticity allows for natural adaptation to new body contours. However, in instances of poor skin elasticity, a combination of thigh lift and liposuction may be recommended to achieve optimal results. Understanding these aspects is crucial for individuals considering thigh lift surgery, as it ensures realistic expectations and a tailored approach that aligns with individual goals and anatomical considerations. Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is advised to determine the most suitable course of action based on specific needs and desired outcomes.

Men and Plastic Surgery
Male – Specific considerations
What can men anticipate on their journey through plastic surgery? In our culture, the emphasis on maintaining a youthful and fit appearance is significant. Presently, men from diverse age groups and backgrounds are increasingly seeking plastic surgery for aesthetic reasons.
Men's objectives may include achieving a more proportionate nose, a revitalized face, and a trimmer waistline. Procedures employed to attain these goals must consider factors such as skin thickness, beard growth, and body type.
Neurotoxins The cosmetic application of botulinum toxin, commonly known as "Botox," is a popular injectable that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin can be utilized to:
Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines
Diminish neck bands
Enhance the appearance of skin dimpling on the chin
Lift the corners of the mouth
Soften a square jawline
Correct a gummy smile
Eyelid Surgery Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical intervention aimed at enhancing the appearance of the eyelids. This procedure can address concerns on both the upper and lower lids.
Eyelid surgery can address issues like:
Loose or sagging skin causing folds or disrupting the natural contour of the upper eyelid, potentially affecting vision
Fatty deposits leading to puffiness in the eyelids
Bags under the eyes
Drooping lower eyelids revealing white below the iris
Excess skin and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid
Liposuction, often colloquially referred to as "lipo," is a procedure designed to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, thereby enhancing body contours and proportions.
Liposuction can be performed on areas such as:
Hips and buttocks
Abdomen and waist
Upper arms
Inner knee
Chest area
Cheeks, chin, and neck
Calves and ankles
Neck Lift A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical method focused on improving visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
Neck lift surgery can address concerns like:
Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face, leading to jowls
Excess fatty deposits under the chin
Loose neck skin
Muscle banding in the neck creating abnormal contours
Gynecomastia Surgery Gynecomastia surgery aims to reduce breast size in men, thereby flattening and enhancing chest contours. This surgical procedure addresses gynecomastia, a condition characterized by overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men, potentially arising from hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or certain medications.
Hair Transplant Hair transplant surgery is performed to restore hair in bald or thinning areas of the scalp. Various methods, including hair transplantation, flap surgery, tissue expansion, and scalp reduction, can be used alone or in combination for hair replacement. Hair transplantation involves extracting small portions of hair-bearing scalp from a donor site and using them as grafts to relocate to areas with hair loss.

Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction Surgery)

Gynecomastia Surgery
Male Breast Reduction Surgery
What is the purpose of gynecomastia surgery? Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure aimed at reducing breast size in men, ultimately flattening and refining the contours of the chest.
In severe instances of gynecomastia, where excess breast tissue weight leads to sagging and stretching of the areola (the dark skin around the nipple), surgical intervention becomes necessary. In such cases, the surgical procedure involves improving the position and size of the areola, along with the reduction of excess skin.
The technical term for plastic surgery addressing gynecomastia is reduction mammaplasty.
What is gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the overdevelopment or enlargement of breasts in men, which can manifest at any age. This condition may result from hormonal fluctuations, hereditary factors, obesity, or the use of specific medications.
Gynecomastia can have emotional repercussions, impacting self-confidence and causing discomfort. Some men may go to great lengths to conceal the condition, even avoiding certain physical activities and intimate situations.
The features of gynecomastia include:
Accumulation of excess localized fat
Development of excess glandular tissue
Occasionally, the presence of excess breast skin
Occurring unilaterally (in one breast) or bilaterally (in both breasts)


The cosmetic variation of botulinum toxin is a widely sought-after injectable that provides temporary relief from or reduction of facial fine lines and wrinkles. The primary target areas for treatment are typically frown lines, forehead creases, and the fine lines around the eyes known as crow's feet. Other areas that have seen successful treatment include thick neck bands, enlarged jaw muscles, lines around the lips, and smiles characterized by excessive gum exposure.
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. In the process of administration, injections of botulinum toxin work by interrupting nerve signals to the injected muscle, preventing its contraction. Consequently, this results in the temporary reduction of unwanted facial wrinkles and an overall improved appearance. Only registered types of botulinum toxin type A injection in Sri Lanka is Botox®.
Botulinum toxin treatments can be employed to:
Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines
Reduce the prominence of neck bands
Enhance the skin texture of the chin
Lift the corners of the mouth
Soften a square jawline
Correct a gummy smile

Laser Hair Removal (Hair Removal Procedure)

Laser Hair Removal
Hair Removal Procedure
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a noninvasive method that employs intensely concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft within the follicle, generating heat that damages the follicle and impedes future hair growth. Consequently, plucking hair before undergoing laser treatment diminishes the effectiveness of the procedure, as the intended target is absent.
Given that laser hair removal selectively impacts actively growing hair follicles, achieving significant hair reduction may necessitate multiple treatment sessions. Despite effectively slowing hair growth, laser hair removal does not ensure permanent removal, and periodic maintenance treatments might be required.
Is laser hair removal a permanent solution?
 While laser hair removal diminishes the quantity of unwanted hair in a specific area, it does not entirely eliminate them. Subsequent regrowth tends to produce finer, lighter, and fewer hairs. Typically, individuals may require four to six sessions, with occasional maintenance sessions as needed.
How does laser hair removal function?
Laser hair removal employs laser beams to elevate the temperature and impair the hair follicles, leading to a temporary cessation of hair production.
Commonly treated areas for laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is predominantly applied to the face, body, legs, armpits, and pubic area.


Minimally Invasive Procedure
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning employ a controlled surgical scraping method to "refinish" the top layers of the skin. These treatments effectively soften the sharp edges of surface irregularities, resulting in a smoother skin appearance.
Primarily, dermabrasion is utilized to enhance the appearance of facial skin affected by scars from accidents or previous surgeries, as well as to reduce fine facial wrinkles. It is also employed for the removal of pre-cancerous growths known as keratoses. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is commonly employed to address deep acne scars.
Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be applied to specific areas or the entire face and may be performed individually or in combination with other procedures such as facelifts, scar removal/revision, or chemical peels.
For those contemplating skin-refinishing surgery, this information provides a fundamental understanding of the procedures, including their potential benefits, the execution process, and expected outcomes. However, individual circumstances may vary, and it is advisable to consult with a doctor to address specific questions or concerns.

Common applications of dermabrasion include treating scars from acne or injuries, fine wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, rhinophyma, and precancerous skin patches.
When considering facial "surface repairs," individuals may also explore chemical peels as an alternative method for surgically removing the top skin layer. While dermabrasion and dermaplaning employ surgical instruments, chemical peel involves a caustic solution.
Plastic surgeons often offer all three procedures and may tailor the approach based on the patient's needs. Chemical peels are generally preferred for treating fine wrinkles, while dermabrasion and dermaplaning are suitable for addressing deeper imperfections like acne scars.
In cases where individuals have slightly darker skin, a non-chemical approach may be favored, especially when treating limited facial areas. Dermabrasion and dermaplaning are considered less likely to result in extreme changes or contrasts in skin color in such instances.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers
Minimally Invasive Procedures
What do dermal fillers entail?
Dermal fillers aid in reducing facial lines while restoring volume and fullness to the face.
With aging, the natural reduction of subcutaneous fat in our faces occurs. Consequently, facial muscles operate in closer proximity to the skin surface, making smile lines and crow's feet more noticeable.
Additionally, facial skin undergoes some stretching, compounding the loss of facial volume. Sun exposure, hereditary factors, and lifestyle choices also influence the condition of the facial skin.
Potential benefits of dermal fillers include:
Enhancing thin lips
Improving shallow contours
Softening facial creases and wrinkles
Enhancing the appearance of recessed scars
Correcting contour deformities in the face
Reducing or eliminating the shadow of the lower lids
Dermal fillers prove beneficial for those exhibiting early signs of aging or as a complementary component of facial rejuvenation surgery.
However, dermal fillers cannot:
Replace the need for surgical interventions such as a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift in some patients. While minimally invasive treatments like soft tissue fillers offer advantages, they do not achieve equivalent results but may help postpone the consideration of surgical options. It is crucial to recognize that dermal fillers provide temporary solutions for facial aging, necessitating ongoing treatments for sustained results.

Skin Rejuvenation & Resurfacing

Skin Rejuvenation & Resurfacing
Skincare Procedure
What is skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?
Various factors such as sun exposure, skin disorders, aging, and hereditary influences can contribute to irregularities on the skin's surface, manifesting as textural issues like wrinkles and acne scars, as well as pigmentation changes such as freckles, sunspots, or visible blood vessels. Additionally, skin may lose its firmness, tone, and the healthy glow associated with youthful skin.
To address these diverse skin concerns, different treatment modalities are available, including laser resurfacing, mechanical resurfacing, chemical peels, and injectable products. These treatments aim to enhance the overall appearance of the face, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation disorders, and various skin conditions like acne scars.
Determining the most suitable treatment for individual concerns requires a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Many skin treatments involve a series of sessions and may necessitate a multi-modality approach for optimal results. It is crucial for patients to commit to ongoing skin protection to prolong the achieved results.
Here are some examples of skin rejuvenation and resurfacing methods:
Laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments: Used to remove discoloration and tighten sagging skin.
Chemical Peels: Various acid peels employed in different combinations to eliminate damaged outer skin layers.
Ablative Laser Treatments (Fractional, CO2 Lasers): Remove outer skin layers to smooth lines and wrinkles.
Mechanical Ablation (Dermabrasion, Dermaplaning): Surgical scraping methods to soften skin surface irregularities.
Non-Ablative Treatments (Microdermabrasion, Microneedling, Light Acid Peels): Minimally invasive sanding methods for light scarring and discolorations.
Dermal Fillers: Injectable compounds to improve skin contouring.
Botulinum Toxin Type A Treatments: Blocks nerve contraction to relax wrinkles.
Spider Vein Treatment (Sclerotherapy): Injections to collapse unsightly surface veins.
Various skin rejuvenation methods can address a range of conditions, including:
Static wrinkles: Persistent wrinkles that are visible at all times and remain unchanged with facial movements.
Dynamic wrinkles: Expression lines that may manifest as folds when the skin is at rest and deepen with facial movements or expressions.
Pigmentation: Darkened patches of skin, such as freckles or sunspots, primarily resulting from sun exposure.
Scars: Resulting from acne or skin injuries, scars may exhibit a rolling (wavy appearance), pitted, discolored, or raised border characteristics.
Vascular conditions: Visible blood vessels on the skin's surface, vascular lesions resembling tiny blood-filled blisters, or a constant facial red flush.
Loss of skin tone: Weakening of supportive skin structures, including collagen and elastin fibers, leading to a decrease in skin firmness or the development of cellulite.
Dull skin: Skin that has lost its vibrant glow due to the accumulation of dead skin cells and clogged pores.

Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal
Eliminate unwanted Tattoos
What is the process of tattoo removal?
Tattoo removal can be accomplished through various methods, including laser treatments, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and surgical excision.
How does tattoo removal work?
Laser Tattoo Removal:
Laser treatments are the most common method for removing tattoos. Tattoos consist of ink particles suspended in the skin, which are usually too large for the body's immune system to remove naturally. Laser tattoo removal uses concentrated light waves to target these ink particles, heating them and causing them to fragment into smaller pieces that can be eliminated by the immune system.
Complete removal often requires multiple laser sessions to reduce ink particle size, making it easier for the immune system to disperse them. The number of sessions depends on factors like tattoo design, size, and color, with a recommended six-week interval between each session. Laser tattoo removal can be somewhat painful, described by some as similar to a heavy rubber band snapping against the skin. Topical numbing medications can be used, and most patients tolerate the procedure well. Afterward, the patient has an open wound requiring care, including daily cleaning, antibiotic ointment application, and dressing until healed.
Other Methods: Dermabrasion, chemical peels, and surgical excision are more invasive tattoo removal methods, less commonly performed today.
Dermabrasion tattoo removal:
Dermabrasion involves surgically removing outer skin layers with a medical grinding tool, typically performed under local, regional, or general anesthesia. Healing may take 10-14 days, and multiple sessions may be necessary.
Chemical peel tattoo removal:
Uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove outer skin layers and tattoo ink. It may cause mild pain, but generally does not require anesthesia. Healing typically takes 5-7 days.
Surgical excision tattoo removal:
 It involves cutting out the skin containing the tattoo, primarily suitable for small tattoos. Anesthesia may be required, and a surgical scar results. Post-surgery care includes bandages for 48 hours, daily cleaning, and dressing for the first week.
Does tattoo removal hurt?
Tattoo removal involves some discomfort, but the pain is generally manageable. Skin numbing may be used to improve tolerance.
Tattoo removal healing
Healing after tattoo removal varies. Temporary side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, scabbing, and tenderness, typically resolving within a week.

Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel
Minimally Invasive Procedure
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel employs a chemical solution to enhance the texture and tone of your skin by eliminating the damaged outer layers.
While chemical peels are predominantly applied to the face, they can also be utilized to enhance the skin on your neck and hands. Factors such as sun exposure, acne, or the natural aging process may result in uneven, wrinkled, discolored, or scarred skin.
A chemical peel stands out as a cost-effective method to enhance your skin's appearance. The outcomes of a chemical peel hinge on the specific type of chemical and technique employed.
Areas where a chemical peel can bring improvement include:
Acne or acne scars
Fine lines and wrinkles
Irregular skin pigmentation
Rough skin and scaly patches
Certain types of scars
Sun-damaged skin
However, a chemical peel cannot:
Address deep facial lines or wrinkles
Significantly tighten loose or sagging skin
Eliminate deep scars

Laser Skin resurfacing

Laser Skin resurfacing
Skincare Procedure
What does laser skin resurfacing involve?
Laser skin resurfacing, also referred to as a laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion, is a procedure that can diminish facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. Advanced laser technologies provide plastic surgeons with enhanced precision, particularly in delicate areas.
Areas that laser skin resurfacing can enhance include:
Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, on the forehead, or around the mouth
Scars resulting from acne or chickenpox
Non-responsive skin post-facelift
Aged or sun-damaged skin
Liver spots
Complexion improvement for individuals with yellowish or grayish skin tones
Birthmarks like linear epidermal nevi
Enlarged oil glands on the nose
How does laser skin resurfacing function?
The procedure involves the use of concentrated beams of light. The surgeon directs the laser to emit short, pulsating beams of light onto irregular skin, methodically removing damaged skin one layer at a time with remarkable precision.
The targeted approach of laser skin resurfacing reduces issues like hypopigmentation, avoiding skin lightening concerns, particularly in procedures like laser acne scar removal.
The laser beam utilized in the procedure removes the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis, while simultaneously heating the underlying skin, called the dermis. This process stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers. As the treated area heals, the emerging skin becomes smoother and firmer.
