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 And Stretch Marks?

Lasers and light sources produce a bright beam of light to selectively destroy the blood vessels that make up the vascular lesions or are contained within the scar or stretch mark, without damaging the surrounding tissues.

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 light source produce bright beams of light that are preferentially absorbed by melanin (the pigment in hair), and causes thermal (heat) damage to the hair shaft and follicle without damaging surrounding tissue. 

How Do You Treat Acne Scars?

We use our laser to remove layer after layer of skin until the scars improve or disappear. At the same time the skin tightens to help smooth out the scars. This is called laser ablative resurfacing.

How Do You Rejuvenate Skin?

Skin is treated using pulses of visible light that improve redness and and the visible signs of sun damage and aging such as brown age spots and skin blotchiness. Result is consistent, visible, permanent improvement in the skin with no downtime, little discomfort and minimal risk.
