Laser Therapy

Scars

Scars form as the result of injury or inflammation in the dermal layer of the skin. When damage to this layer of skin occurs, the body produces new collagen fibers for the purpose of mending the injury. When the wound is finished healing, a scar is formed. Scars can come in many shapes, sizes and colours, all of which can cause the scarred area to contrast with the adjacent skin becoming more visible.

Using the latest, state of the art lasers, Dr Soubra can improve even the most stubborn of scars such as:

Surgical Scarring

Keloid and Hypertrophic scarring, from surgical or traumatic injury (several treatments are necessary)

Acne scars (several treatment sessions are necessary)

Burn and Trauma scars- including contractures (a series of treatments are necessary)

The Laser Genesis lasers treat the general textural changes that are associated with damaged skin. The middle dermal layer is targeted by the laser, with only a feeling of warmth, which stimulates collagen production and reorganization. Over the course of treatment, the appearance of scars improves and the scar blends with the surrounding skin.

Treatment for scarring, using the Laser Genesis System, requires no down time and is pain free. Multiple treatments are usually necessary and done every 3-4 weeks.

Scar tissue is the whitening and slight rising of the skin after there has been such bad damage that the body cannot heal it. It can be unsightly and very severe depending of the incident that caused it.

Advanced Laser Therapy for Hypertrophic scar is an innovative modality to treat and accelerate scar remodeling, minimize redness associated with scar. Also, enhanced cosmoses also soften and relax the tension in scars, improving mobility for the patient.

What is Nail Fungus?

Nail fungus or Onychomycosis is and infection of the nail that is common today affecting approximately 6.5% to 8.7% of the population. It particularly affects persons that are Immune-compromised, including HIV-positive patients, people with psoriasis, Peripheral vascular disease and those who smoke. It can be caught anywhere, but is usually contracted from swimming pools, the gym, and similar places. 

Description 

Onychomycosis, or nail fungus is a visible and unattractive infection of the toenails, it causes the nail to grow very thick, appear cloudy, and it may  also become very brittle and chip or break easily.

You may have fungal nail infection if you have one or more of the fallowing symptoms:

  • Discoloration Nails
  • Yellow streaks under the nails
  • Distorted or thickened nails
  • Brittle, crumbly or ragged nails
  • Nails separted from underlying nail bed
  • Build-up of debris (nail fragments, skin) under the nail
  • White spots or streaks on the nail surface

 A modern and non-invasive treatment of onychomycosis involves applying  Laser energy to the nail plate, combining a unique patented high powered laser system With microsecond pulsing capability and high repetition rates. 

The treatment takes about 15 - 30 minutes to do two feet, there are no adverse side effects and no anesthesia is needed or used.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatment is used effectively to cure following conditions:

  • Clearance of nail with Onychomycosis
  • Nail Fungus

  • Reduction in pore size
  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Rosacea / Diffuse Redness
  • Poikiloderma of Civatte
  • Morton’s Neuromas

How does it work?

Laser light passes through the nail and the surrounding tissue and is absorbed by the darker pigment of the fungi, causing the cells to heat. The combination of head and light selectively destroys the fungus, leaving normal surrounding cells unharmed. As the nail continues to grow, the infected area grows out with it leaving behind new clear nail.

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on how many toes are affected, the laser procedure will take around 10-20 minutes. 

Is Laser painful?

Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most peole find the treatment very easy to tolerate.

Results

In study where 46%, almost half of the nail were significantly infected, 70% of the nails showed great improvement after only two treatments, 6 weeks apart.
