Cosmetic Dermatology & Skin Laser Clinic
Cosmetic surgery is performed to
reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve a patient's
appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by
health insurance because it is an elective procedure. Thailand is
a great place to get the healthcare you need at prices you can afford.

Polaris Laser Wrinkle Removal
Polaris is the very latest non-surgical
wrinkle reduction and skin tightening
treatment. Polaris uses elos™
(electro-optical synergy) which is the
first combination of laser with RF
optimal energy levels with highly
targeted penetration and results.
Polaris is less painful than similar
techniques and is the only system that
uses the optimal dual laser and RF
energy of elos™.How does Polaris work to
reduce wrinkles and tighten skin laxity?
The Polaris elos™ system generates
gentle pulses of two types of
energies-the diode laser energy smoothes
the surface of the skin, while the
combination of laser and radio-frequency
penetrates to the deeper dermis,
tightening skin laxity from within. This
unique energy matrix operating at
multiple levels in the skin allows for
real results, the maximum amount of
comfort and virtually no downtime.
How is Polaris different from
Thermage uses a single type of energy
(RF). Polaris uses a synergy of dual
energies (diode laser and RF) to
penetrate the skin at several levels -
broadening its range of treatment. The
energy delivered by Thermage penetrates
much deeper into the dermis, therefore
many people see results following a
single treatment. Polaris treatments are
less penetrating, and typically much
more comfortable, but several treatments
may be required for optimal results.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will
depend on each individual's skin type,
the area being treated, the condition of
the skin and level of skin damage. Most
patients will see significant
improvement following three to five
treatments performed over three to four
week intervals. We offer special package
rates for the purchase of a series of
Am I a good candidate for Polaris
Polaris treatments are effective for
almost all skin types. Your Provider
will personally assess your skin to
determine whether you are a good
candidate for Polaris treatments.
Are Polaris treatments painful?
You will feel some discomfort, which
can be minimized by using a topical
anesthetic (numbing cream).
What will happen after the
You may experience temporary redness,
itching and/or swelling in the treated
area, but this typically lasts a very
short time. Most people can apply
cosmetics and return to work or normal
activity immediately after treatment.
Should I be doing anything in
preparation for my treatment?
You should avoid sun exposure and
tanning (including artificial tanning
products and procedures) before and
after your treatments. An SPF of 30 or
higher should be used on treatment areas
before and after the procedure
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Carbon dioxide lasers have been in use for years to treat
benign and malignant skin conditions. The newest generation of carbon
dioxide lasers use very short pulsed light energy or continuous light
beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to very precisely remove
thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage to the surrounding
structures. These lasers have been successfully used to treat wrinkles
and scars as well as other benign skin growths such as warts, linear
epidermal nevi (birthmarks), rhinophyma (enlarged oil glands on the
nose), and other skin conditions.
The field of carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is rapidly changing and
improving. The ability to rejuvenate sun-damaged, wrinkled skin has been
revolutionized by this new technology.
What can be expected during and after the
In general, carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is performed on
an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia in combination with orally-
or intravenously-administered sedative medications. Wrinkles around the
eyes, mouth, or forehead may be treated individually, or a full-face
laser abrasion may be performed. The areas to be treated are numbed with
a local anesthetic. General anesthesia may be used when the entire face
is treated. A partial-face laser abrasion takes 30-45 minutes, and the
full-face treatment takes 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Following the laser resurfacing procedure, a telfa dressing is
applied to the treatment sites for 24 hours. The patient then cleans the
treated areas two to five times a day with saline or a dilute vinegar
solution. An ointment such as Vaseline, Eucerin, or Aquaphor is then
applied. This wound care is intended to prevent any scab formation. In
general, the areas heal in 10-21 days, depending on the nature of the
condition that was treated.
Once the areas have healed, makeup may be worn to camouflage the pink
to red color that is generally seen after laser resurfacing. Green-based
makeups are particularly suitable for this camouflage. Oil-free makeups
are recommended. The redness in the laser-treated sites generally fades
in two to three months but may take as long as six months to disappear.
The redness generally persists longer in blondes and redheads.
Patients with darker skin tones have a greater risk of healing with
darker pigmentation (hyperpigmentation). This may be minimized by
preoperative use of a bleaching agent as well as continued use of this
agent after healing.
What are the possible side effects?
- Milia, which are small white bumps, may appear in the
laser-treated areas during healing. These may be removed by gentle
cleansing with a washcloth.
- Hyperpigmentation, and more rarely hypopigmentation, may result in
the laser-treated areas. In general, the hyperpigmented areas may be
treated with bleaching cream to facilitate fading of the pigment.
- Reactivation of a herpes simplex cold sore may occur, especially
after laser resurfacing around the mouth. This can be prevented by
giving an antiviral medicine prior to the surgery and continuing it
for seven to ten days afterwards.
- Bacterial infections are also prevented by taking an antibiotic
prior to the surgery and continuing for seven to ten days afterwards.
- Postoperative swelling is to be expected and is lessened by
administration of intramuscular steroids.
- Patients are encouraged to sleep on an extra pillow at night to
help reduce the swelling. Ice pack application is also helpful in the
first 24-48 hours.
- Scarring, although very rare, may occur in laser-treated areas.
- Cessation of smoking is highly recommended because of its
documented harmful effects on the healing process.
How is the skin cared for afterwards?
Daily sunscreen application is necessary after healing to
protect the newly laser-resurfaced skin. A "broad-spectrum sunscreen,
which screens both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays is recommended.
A sunscreen specifically formulated for use on the face should be
chosen, and with at least a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15.
Liberal moisturizer application is also recommended after healing.
Patients may resume application of Retin-A and/or glycolic acid products
around six weeks after the procedure or as directed by their physician.
Q-Switched NaVAG LASER
This laser is used to eliminate moles,
freckles, and tattoos including nevus pigmentosus.
Lasers have many advantages including causing less damage to the skin,
they are fast and the patient feels no pain. The probability of causing scaring
or keloid is very small.
Phototherapy is used for treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo,
skin allergy, sun sensitivity, scleroderma, leukasmus and chronic rashes
