FAQ - Dermatology

Do You See Children?

Yes, we do see children of all ages, from infants to teens, for their dermatological conditions.

Will I Need A Biopsy For My Lesion?

Most lesions are benign and do not require a biopsy. Only lesions suspicious for cancer require biopsy.

How Long Is The Wait For An Appointment?

We can see you generally within a week. This is because special slots are reserved for those making an appointment through our website.

What are Precancerous Skin Lesions?

Skin cancer may often be preceded by lesions called pre-cancers. The most well-known of these lesions is called actinic keratoses, which is considered an early form of squamous cell carcinoma. An actinic keratosis, a new or changing mole (nevi), and other unusual lesions on your skin should be carefully monitored and brought to the attention of your doctor.

How Do Lasers Work to Remove Vascular Lesions?

Lasers can be targeted to selectively destroy the blood vessels that make up the vascular lesions such as in Rosacea, birth marks, or vascular blemishes.

What Are the Advantages of Laser Hair Removal?

Waxing, shaving, and plucking provide only temporary relief. Electrolysis is a painful, slow, and tedious process for hair removal. Only small areas can be treated during a single visit with electrolysis, and many treatments over a period of months to years are required to achieve a satisfactory result, and pitted scarring occasionally may occur.

The lasers and light sources are safe, effective, and convenient and allow larger areas to be treated during a single visit, with improvement noticeable after only one treatment. Repeat treatments are required to achieve the best possible result.

How Do You Remove Hair?

The Diode Laser beam is preferentially absorbed by melanin (the pigment in hair), and causes thermal (heat) damage to the hair shaft without damaging surrounding tissue. 

How Do You Treat Acne Scars?

Numerous micro-columns of laser beams are used ablatively to regenerate collagen and remodel the scars until they improve or disappear.

How Do You Rejuvenate Skin?

Skin is treated with Diode Lasers and/or Fractional Co2 Laser, which brings about collagen synthesis and other beneficial effects that tightens skins, remove blemishes and reverses sun-damaged or age-related skin changes. Result is consistent, visible, long-term improvement in the skin with no downtime, little discomfort and minimal risk.
