Please note that for all laser procedures done at Mandalay Laser Clinic Suites, an appointment has to be made with our doctors at the non-subsidised clinic for initial consultation and assessment.

 

Laser and Aesthetic Services

The following common cosmetic skin conditions may be treated with procedures at NSC. Prior consultation with our dermatologists is required to identify the condition and to discuss the various treatment options that are available. All cosmetic procedures may be associated with some potential side effects that you should be aware of. Do discuss treatment benefits and potential side effects with your doctor before deciding if the procedure is suitable for you.


Skin conditions that may be improved in NSC are:

    • Acne scars

      Acne scars are formed as a result of intense inflammation occurring during active acne. The intense inflammation injures the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis) and scar tissues form as a result of the healing process. Acne scars are usually depressed and sunken (atrophic), but may be thickened (keloids) as well.

      List of treatment options available for this skin condition:


      Enlighten® (Cutera) is the reference picosecond 532nm / 1064nm laser that operates in the ultra-short picosecond domain and is a treatment option for pigmented lesions. It also offers treatment in the nanosecond domain. It offers faster clearance of deeper and resistant pigmentation with minimal risk of post-laser pigmentation even in darker skin types. The Enlighten® laser is a treatment option for difficult to treat red and black tattoos. In the fractionated mode, this laser allows for non-ablative skin rejuvenation and acne scar treatment.


      Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser Treatment
      (Conventional and Fractional)

      In the conventional laser treatment mode, the laser light targets water in the cells and is used as a precision tool to destroy abnormal skin growths such as moles, syringomas and warts.

      In the fractional treatment mode, the laser light is controlled by a special scanner to treat only a fraction of the skin, leaving ample islands of untouched skin. Fractional CO2 lasering allows for safer deep treatment of the skin with shorter healing time and minimal side-effects. Fractional CO2 lasering is regarded as a reliable treatment for depressed acne scars.

    • Age and sun-induced spots

      Age and sun-induced spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light accelerates the production of melanin, which may be produced in high concentrations due to prolonged exposure to the sun, over a period of many years.

      Dynamic wrinkles are caused by over-activity of the muscles of facial expression. They include horizontal and central forehead frown lines and crow’s feet around the eyes.

      List of treatment options available for this skin condition:


      Botulinum toxin is a purified protein injection that causes temporary weakening of the muscle. It is used to reduce dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, crow's feet as well as excessive sweatiness of the underarms.

    • Freckles

      Freckles are light brown small flat spots that appear on areas of sun exposed skin such as the cheeks and nose. They are usually present at a young age and tend to increase with age. Freckles can be reduced and lightened by avoiding sun exposure and with the regular use of sunscreens and skin lightening creams. If creams and sun avoidance still do not give satisfactory results, they can be safely removed with intense pulsed light therapy or pigment laser treatment. Most patients require about four to six treatment sessions to obtain optimal results.

The laser also targets blood in the deeper parts of the skin and may be used to treat venous lakes on the lips.

    • Hair Restoration

      Advanced hair loss not responding to medical therapy may benefit from surgical implantation of one own hair from hair growing area to hair loss area of the scalp.

      List of treatment options available for this skin condition:


      Strip Harvesting
      This requires removal of a strip of tissue from the safe donor zone in the occipital region of the scalp, which is then microscopically dissected into individual follicular units for transplantation. This method yields more robust grafts with higher graft survival rates.


      Follicular Unit Extraction
      This method utilises a small, sharp cylindrical punch (generally 0.9mm to 1.2mm in diameter) to incise the skin surrounding each individual follicular unit before they are carefully teased out with forceps. FUE’s advantages include decreased healing time and eliminates the need for suturing. The individual follicular units are then placed into tiny recipient sites created in the area of hair loss.
