Stretch mark removal usually will take approximately 4 – 6 treatments in 3 – 4-week intervals.
Skin Tag Removal
As skin tags are usually small, harmless, people tend to have them removed for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. They most often appear on the neck, armpits, upper trunk, and body folds.
Sometimes large ones, especially in areas where they may rub against something, such as clothing, jewelry or skin, may be removed because the area becomes frequently irritated. An individual may have a large skin tag removed from his face or under her arms in order to make shaving easier.
The following procedures may be used to remove skin tags:
- Cauterization – the skin tag is burned off using electrolysis (heat is used to remove them)
- Cryosurgery – the skin tag is frozen off using a probe containing liquid nitrogen
- Ligation – the blood supply to the skin tag is interrupted
- Excision – the skin tag is removed with a scalpel (it is cut).
Patch testing is generally done to see whether a particular substance is causing allergic skin irritation. Patch tests can detect delayed allergic reactions, which can take several days to develop.
The patch testing procedure is simple and painless. In order to identify specific triggers, your doctor will tape several patches that contain various potential chemicals to the skin on the back.
A positive skin test means that you may be allergic to a particular substance. Bigger wheals usually indicate a greater degree of sensitivity. A negative skin test means that you probably aren’t allergic to a particular allergen. Once positive results have been determined, patients can take steps to avoid their triggers and prevent contact dermatitis from occurring.
Skin biopsy is the most important diagnostic test for skin disorders. A properly performed skin biopsy almost always yields useful diagnostic information.
Skin biopsy is performed to remove a lesion or to take a diagnostic sample of a skin rash or lesion, with subsequent examination of tissue using a variety of possible staining and microscopic techniques.
The techniques most often employed are:
Shave biopsy: a tool similar to a razor to remove a small section of the top layers of skin. It involves removal of protruding, superficial skin blemishes (for example, skin tags).
Excision biopsy: Skin is removed using scalpel incision. This may involve taking part of the skin or removing a complete skin lesion.
Punch biopsy: Here a small disc of full thickness skin is taken using a special punch biopsy instrument.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoos are created by injecting coloured pigment into small deep holes, which are very difficult to remove.
Laser tattoo removal is a noninvasive procedure that uses a Q-switched laser device to break down the pigment colors of an unwanted tattoo, while causing minimal damage to surrounding arrea.
Tattoo ink absorb short pulse duration/high peak laser energy so quickly that they create a photo- acoustic effect within the pigment clusters. This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system.
During treatment, pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. After the treatment you may noticed redness and swelling, which may take a few days to settle. Any discomfort is minimal and you will be provided with aftercare products to speed up skin healing and to protect the skin.
Many of us have a scar that we would like removed. Scarring can result from virtually anything that damages the skin, from chicken pox to sports injuries and surgery.
Most scars can be significantly improved in appearance through one or more cosmetic techniques, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, collagen injections, and fat transfer procedures. Microdermabrasion and chemicals peels are ablative procedures that involve the removal of regeneration of the top layer of skin.
Prime is pleased to offer a Laser treatment for scars, an excellent option for minimizing the appearance of scars caused by acne, surgery, or other factors. Fractional CO2 Laser can eliminate or diminish the appearance of most wrinkles, scars, warts and birthmarks. It is generally safe, performed under local anesthesia.
Radio Frequency Therapy
Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is a technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure.
RF therapy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30s to 50s. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck.
Cryotherapy & Electro Cautery
Cryotherapy is a method of super freezing tissue in order to destroy it. It is done using a swab that has been dipped into liquid nitrogen or a probe that has liquid nitrogen flowing through it. Cryotherapy is mainly used to:
-Destroy precancerous skin lesions (actinic keratosis or solar keratosis)
Electro cautery is a technique frequently used in the treatment of genital warts or warts on other areas of the body. It is the process of destroying tissue with electricity and is widely used in modern surgery. The procedure is frequently used to stop bleeding of small vessels or for cutting through soft tissue.
Cautery is effective in the treatment of skin tags, solar keratoses, milia and sebaceous hyperplasia.
The injection treatment, called mesotherapy, is a non surgical cosmetic solution aimed diminishing problem areas in your body such as skin disorders, reduce cellulite, excess weight, vascular disease, sports related trauma, rheumatoid conditions and face/neck rejuvenation, just to name a few.
Mesotherapy is a process of injecting natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and homeopathic substances, or medications that can address the various contributing causes and thereby reduce cellulite. The series of tiny injections are placed intracutaneously, just under the surface of the skin.
– It is introduced into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin.
– The content mixture of the injection varies in accordance with each unique case and specific area to be treated.
– Mesotherapy can also assist in reducing pain, and in replenishing hair loss in both men and women.
Although mesotherapy was originally employed for pain relief, its cosmetic applications, particularly fat and cellulite reduction, have become increasingly popular. Painless and quick, a series of mesotherapy treatments gives impressive results that last, especially when combined with other cosmetic and weight loss treatments including diet and exercise. There are virtually no side effects with mesotherapy, aside from occasional slight bruising.
