Cosmetic Lasers

Are you tired of shaving, waxing, tweezing, and plucking? Now, you can enjoy all the perks of being fuzz free without the tedious, painful, and short-term fixes. Our medical aestheticians can eliminate unwanted hair from virtually any part of the body utilizing the Vectus Laser, the latest technology available. The Vectus laser offers unparalleled speed, safety, and efficacy while achieving permanent hair reduction. This allows you to look and feel your best without having to resort to the more traditional methods of hair removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Hair grows in three different cycles with only about one-third of a patient's hair visible above the skin at any time. Therefore, it is necessary for patients to receive four to five treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimum results.

Laser hair removal is a clinically proven technology that targets and destroys the cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding skin. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal at Malik Medical Aesthetics

Our treatments are customized to the specific skin and hair color of each patient. This allows us to treat the full spectrum of skin types more effectively than most other medical aesthetic practices.

The Vectus Laser has the greatest spot size and most uniform beam of any hair removal device on the market and utilizes the Skintel™ Melanin Reader. ™ These prime features allows our laser technicians to safely tailor hair removal treatments to meet the needs of each unique skin tone, skin type, hair type, ethnicity and lifestyle. The safety profile of our Vectus laser is second-to-none. Additionally, assessing how much melanin is in the skin allows the laser technician to personalize the treatment settings for superior results, while diminishing the risk of over-treatment.

This is a simple approach to permanent hair reduction that’s fast, easy, and FDA-cleared. Best of all, with the Vectus laser hair device treatment, sessions can be completed with minutes. In fact, the entire body can be treated in just 45 minutes.

The Benefits for Laser Hair Removal

Light-based hair removal has become the gold standard for almost everyone, including all skin tones and almost all hair types. For men, laser hair removal has become the preferred method for permanently reducing chest and back hair to achieve a cleaner, younger appearance. For women, laser hair removal is an amazing (and effective!) alternative to creams, threading and waxing for reducing hair on the face and body, including delicate areas around the lips and the bikini line.

Benefits include:

  • Permanent reduction of facial and body hair
  • Fast, easy treatments with little to no downtime
  • Minimizes the occurrence of ingrown hairs

Not only will it allow you enjoy the freedom of being fuzz free without shaving, waxing or plucking, it can also greatly reduce the incidence of ingrown hairs. However, laser hair removal is not effective for individuals with light blond, grey or silver hair. The ideal laser hair removal candidate has light, untanned skin, and dark, coarse hair. We highly recommend that you avoid sun exposure and the use of self-tanning products prior to your treatment.

LASER SCAR TREATMENT

Scar can make a person's self-esteem at the lower levels when in a social environments. Scars can happen due to many reasons and most scars can be minimized to almost negligible levels using a combination of techniques.

Acne Scars are common and usually develop due to severe acne in younger years of life between 15-25 years of age mostly. These are major cause of significant anxiety and anguish. Self-esteem may be affected. The acne shall be treated aggressively to minimize such scars. Depending on the scar location and size, multiple treatment modalities can be used, including laser fractionation to break the underlying bands of fibrous tissue or some mechanical ways such as micro-needling. The long lasting fillers may be needed to raise the base of the scars in some cases and will surely benefit the appearance.

Acne Scars

Permanent scarring resulting from acne can be difficult to remove and can be unsightly and debilitating to a patient's self esteem. The Sciton Tunable Resurfacing Laser is a precision tool that can dramatically improve the quality of acne-scarred skin. The Tunable Resurfacing Laser enables us to tune the treatment for the different types of acne scars and improve their appearance. We can restore our patients' confidence with this treatment. We also offer Bellafill for Acne Acar reduction.

SCAR TREATMENT FOR GETTING YOUR SELF-ESTEEM BACK

Don't let your scars on the skin lead to scars on your self-esteem. At Malik Medical Aesthetics, we provide the advanced treatments for your scars and help you get confidence back to its best.

Surgical Scars

One goal with any type of surgery is to avoid serious scarring; however, many patients will have residual scars with excessive redness and stiffness. Sciton's ProFractional Therapy provides a solution to lessen or eliminate residual surgical scars. Improving the appearance of our patients' scars will boost their confidence and self-esteem.

Burn Scars

Fire and thermal injury can cause severe scars - disfiguring patients and causing pain. Burning, itching, decreased function and reduced range-of-motion are common. Sciton's ProFractional Therapy initiates wound healing, in order to produce new collagen and elastin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. With ProFractional Therapy, we can greatly improve our patients' range of motion, confidence, and self-esteem.

ProFractional Therapy™ Basics

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

ProFractional Therapy provides excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. ProFractional Therapy ablates narrow channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area.

ProFractional therapy provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation. The physician can precisely tune the laser to the exact tissue effect desired - from pure ablation to pure coagulation, and every combination in between. This helps us in getting the best possible results for our patients, from shallow scars too deep and thick scars. The response of the body can be modified to prevent bigger scars if they are evaluated early on and managed. Scars on the face need more finesse and other areas of the body can tolerate deeper resurfacing. Call today for your complimentary consult to learn about the options.

BENEFITS OF PROFRACTIONAL THERAPY INCLUDE

  • Increased patient comfort
  • Shorter healing times
  • Tunable results that range from subtle to dramatic
  • Treats all skin types, both on face and body

Science + Technology

Better ablation through more efficient water absorption

ProFractional utilizes an erbium: YAG laser, which was chosen due to its high ablation efficiency. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2 (see graph below) which gives erbium the ability to vaporize tissue with very little thermal conduction. By contrast, due to their comparatively low absorption by water, CO2 lasers have lower ablation efficiency and therefore, unavoidably, conduct a significant amount of heat into the tissue.

TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) technology

Erbium's high water absorption is only part of the story. What truly sets ProFractional apart is TRL technology, which gives the user the ability to adjust the depth of ablation and coagulation independently. By modulating the laser's energy to deliver supra-ablative pulses, ProFractional is able to vaporize any depth of tissue from 25 to 1500 µm per pass with extreme precision. If coagulation is desired, ProFractional-XC delivers a train of sub-ablative laser pulses that heat the tissue to a selectable depth without vaporizing it.

ProFractional's TRL technology can ablate from 25 µm to 1500 µm with exacting precision.

HOW DOES LASER VEIN THERAPY WORK?

Our laser system delivers pulses of light energy to your unwanted veins, which causes them to close up. Unsightly leg veins do not serve an important role in blood circulation and actually hinder the proper flow of blood in the legs. Laser treated veins shrink and are re-absorbed by the body. Blood flow will then be redirected to deeper veins below your skin's surface, where it should be.

WHO CAN BE TREATED?

Our laser allows treatment of almost all skin tones. Treatment is less effective with very dark skin tones. What types of problems can be treated? Our laser can remove unsightly veins and vascular markings from all parts of the body. Small facial veins can be treated quickly without bruising. Spider veins and some larger blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Cherry-Red Spots (cherry angiomas) respond often with just one treatment. Red birthmarks can also be treated. Unfortunately, knotty or ropey varicose veins which bulge from the surface of the skin cannot be treated with a non-invasive laser.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

Often, patients find that 1 or 2 treatments are sufficient; however, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of the veins being treated.

DO THE TREATMENTS HURT?

Our laser cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, we can provide a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Some veins may initially appear darker, before fading away over the next few weeks. Other veins may show immediate improvement. Some larger veins may require support wrapping for a day or two.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?

Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. For larger veins, a tan or brownish pigment may appear (as the veins disappear) and persist for several weeks. Our doctors can provide complete information on the risks and benefits of treatment.

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON MY ACTIVITY AFTER TREATMENT?

Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen of SPF 30+ is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within 2 to 6 weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with laser treatment.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Pricing is based on length of time needed for treatment. An estimate of the required treatment time will be determined after the initial consultation depending upon how much the patient wants done and the condition of their veins.

DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVES?

We do have other alternatives, such as IPL vein treatment and if the veins are too thick and tortuous, we can do Laser Vein ablation, which is an intravascular procedure done using special laser fiber-optic instruments at special laser wavelengths. In this procedure, the laser fiber goes inside the veins and permanently closes them. We will be having this facility very shortly at our facility. Please call for consultation to see what's the best modality of treatment for your vein problems.

WHAT CELLULITE IS

A skin condition caused by enlarged fat cells trapped in an inflexible network of collagen in the hypodermis.

WHAT CELLULITE ISN'T: YOUR FAULT!

85 - 98% of women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives - 151 million women in the US alone. Did you know that no amount of diet or exercise can prevent or reduce cellulite? Even average, lean and fit women frequently have cellulite. Cellulite develops due to the hormonal changes in women. The way the fat is laid out in the superficial layers of skin, architecturally, makes it difficult for this fat to be removed using traditional techniques. Cellulite reduction isn't just about creating smoother, tighter skin - it's also about creating a more confident, self-assured woman. We now also offer the VANQUISH RF procedure at Malik Medical Aesthetics, for losing those inches non-invasively. Please call for a complementary consultation.

Laser-assisted lipolysis works through selective photothermia, which occurs when laser-light energy is absorbed by fat and then converted into heat energy. The laser energy is transmitted to the adipocytes via the passage of a laser fiber. The adipocytes absorb the energy and rupture, yielding permanent volume reduction.

Laser-assisted lipolysis is a photo thermal process secondary to the absorption of laser energy by water which raises the temperature of the subcutaneous space and lower dermis. This causes contraction in all layers due to collagen remodeling.

The laser energy is delivered by thin fibers passed within the subcutaneous space. The main chromophore is water, which causes heating of the subcutaneous space and dermis. The lower dermis is heated to temperatures 5-8 degrees Centigrade higher than the surface of the skin. Tissue tightening through coagulation occurs at internal temperatures of 40 - 42 degrees Centigrade.

Laser-assisted lipolysis is perfomed at our facilities under local anesthesia known as tumescent anesthesia. Numbing medications are injected using thin needles and the patient remains fully awake and conversant during the procedure, allowing us to do real time intra-operative evaluation of the procedure by making the patient stand up or move side to side as needed. Power assisted liposuction tools are used for highly fibrotic or thick areas and laser is used for remodelling of the collagen and destruction of adeposites(fat cell). If adeposites are not destroyed, as happens with traditional liposuction, they will fill up with fat molecules again in future to reduce the benefits and effects of the liposuction. The down time is minimal, and one can be back to non-laborous work in 3-4 days after the procedure is performed.

We offer procedures including Brazilian Butt Lift and Fat Transfer to the Face and other areas.
