Cosmetic treatments

First, we need to discuss the five most revolutionary cosmetic treatments.

Hair Transplant

In the past, people thought that there is no way to regrow your fallen hair and when someone’s hair began to fall then it was a common perception that they would stay that way for the rest of their life. The idea of permanent hair loss was solid. When the first hair transplant was performed in 1952 by Dr. Norman Orentreich it was rejected by the medical community. The idea of the hair transplant was later accepted and became a widely known treatment.

Types of hair transplant

There are two different types of hair transplants the cost of hair transplant depend upon the types of transplant chosen. The two types of hair transplants are known as FUSS (Follicular unit strip surgery) and FUE (Follicular unit extraction). The total cost depends on the number of graft and the type of procedure you chose. Which raises the question “What’s the difference between the two procedures?” well we are going to tell you exactly what the difference is.


In this procedure entire back of the head is shaved and then individual hair follicles are removed. Small dots are created which could be easily hidden by the surrounding hairs. These harvested grafts are then transplanted into the desired area of the scalp. FUE is the latest technology and has lesser complications.


In this procedure, a strip of skin along with hair is removed from the back of the head. The cut can be concealed by surrounding hairs. The harvested strip is then divided into small parts and each part contains only a few hairs. These harvested hairs are then transplanted into the desired area.

In both types of hair transplants, the cost of the procedure depends upon the area covered. Many people have gotten rid of the hair loss through this technique.

Laser Hair Removal

Before the laser hair removal, people used to think that they are going to have to remove hair for the rest of their life on a regular basis to have smooth and hairless skin. People used to go through the painful procedures such tweezing and waxing every time they decide to remove hair but with the introduction of hair removal all that changed. People now had a lasting procedure for hair removal and a procedure which could get rid of their body hair for good.

How does it work?

Laser hair removal uses the heating characteristic of light to remove hairs from the body. The heat produced due to the absorption of light by hairs is transferred to hair follicles which are destroyed in the procedure.

Advantages of Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is very effective when it comes to removal of unwanted hair from arms, face, underarm, bikini line, legs, hands etc. The advantages of the laser are following.

Lasers are precise and can remove the hair from the desired area while leaving the surrounding area unaffected.

Laser hair removal is long lasting and the recipient will usually see the results of permanent hair loss in four to seven-session.

Lasers are fast and can remove multiple hairs at the same time however the total time of the entire procedure depends upon the size of the area from which hairs are removed.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck is a weight loss procedure which can help in the removal of unwanted fat from the body in less time which would otherwise take lots of time, dieting and exercise. Sometimes the fat becomes so stubborn that even dieting and exercise won’t work and the only solution is Liposuction and Tummy Tuck. Liposuction is a technique used for correcting contours of the body and is not suitable for fat removal because it cannot remove excess skin. Tummy Tuck is a procedure used to remove both excess skin and fat.

How does it work?

In this procedure, two incisions are made one is horizontal and one is vertical. The horizontal incision is made between the pubic region and the belly button while the vertical incision is made around naval for removal of excess skin. Fat is removed through the horizontal incision while skin is removed through the vertical incision.

Tummy Tuck is a major surgery and requires anesthesia which means that there will be possible complications with the surgery just like any other major surgery so be sure to consult your doctor before going ahead with the surgery.


The Results of Tummy Tuck are impressive and can give a person their desired shape. The person going under the surgery won’t even have to worry about the excess saggy skin because this surgery removes fat as well as excess skin.

Chemical Peel

In the past, people had to use different procedures to get clearer skin. Wrinkles were considered permanent and people used to think that they can never get a clear skin no matter what they do. Different pastes were developed to keep the face clear and spotless but none were as much effective as a chemical peel. Instead of paste this procedure use acids which clear the skin by removing dead and old skin.

Types of Peels

There are three types of peels which are Superficial Peels, Medium Peels, and Deep Peels. The results and the recovery time of peel depend upon the strength of the peel. Stronger peel lasts for a longer time compared to weaker peels.

Superficial Peels uses weaker acids and can only penetrate the outer layer of skin. Its recovery time is four to seven days and lasts for a lesser time.

Medium Peels uses stronger acids when compared to the superficial peel it can reach to the middle layer of skin and clears more deeply. The recovery time of this procedure is five to seven days and lasts for a longer time when compared to Superficial Peel.

Deep Peel uses the strongest acids among all of the peels. The chemicals used in this process are so strong that it can penetrate the middle layer of skin and remove all the damaged cells of the skin. The recovery time of this peel is two weeks however redness will last for a few months. The effects of this peel are long lasting.

Chemical peels can clear the skin from scratches, dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone etc.

Laser Skin Whitening

Laser skin whitening is a procedure that can make the color of skin wither and make the skin clearer in a short amount of time. People have been using different types of creams and pastes to make their skin whiter and clearer but all those treatments are not permanent and need to be repeated regularly for perfect results not to mention the harmful effects that these pastes could have on your skin.

Laser skin whitening is a permanent solution and there are no harmful effects. People who go through this treatment won’t have to use different pastes regularly.

How does it work?

There are two types of lasers used for the treatments ablative and non-ablative. Both of these lasers work on the heating quality of light, however, the two works a little differently.

Ablative Laser targets the skin with intense light to initiate the production of collagen by removing the upper layers of skin along with sub-upper layers to make way for new skin. The new skin that forms after this procedure is clearer and fairer.

Non-ablative Laser heats up the skin by penetrating it with less intense light to initiate the production of collagen. It travels deeper into the skin without damaging so that the skin could formulate new cells.

Laser skin whiting is effective, permanent, quick and safe.
