Routine skin treatment

Skin, hair, and nails reflect the emotions seen in a mirror. Accounting for approximately 17% of an adult’s body weight, skin, also known as the integumentary system, is the largest organ of the body that is in direct contact with the external environment. Due to hormonal issues, smoking, pollution, stress, etc. your skin may develop some skin diseases which would require you to consult a dermatologist for routine skin treatments.


Embracing Life with Psoriasis: Your Journey at Aura Laser and Cosmetic Clinic

Understanding Psoriasis

At Aura Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, we understand that living with psoriasis can be challenging. Psoriasis is more than just a skin condition; it’s a part of your life. It’s those raised, red, and sometimes scaly patches that can affect your confidence and comfort. We’re here to help you navigate this journey.

Personalised Treatment Options

We know that psoriasis isn’t one-size-fits-all, and that’s why our approach to treatment is as unique as you are. We take into account the type and severity of your psoriasis to create a treatment plan that’s just for you.

1. Soothing Your Skin with Topical Treatments

Our first step in treating psoriasis often begins with topical treatments. These are creams and ointments available over-the-counter that slow down rapid skin cell growth and ease inflammation. Your specific treatment will depend on the type and severity of your psoriasis.

2. Letting Light Guide the Way: Phototherapy

Phototherapy, or light therapy, is a trusted friend in the world of psoriasis treatment. It harnesses the goodness of ultraviolet (UV) light, much like sunlight, to calm overactive skin cells. We prefer Narrowband UVB phototherapy, which typically involves treatments three times a week for the best results. If needed, we also offer the precise Excimer Laser Treatment for areas like hands, elbows, and knees.

3. Systemic Treatments: When Your Skin Needs a Helping Hand

For those with moderate to severe psoriasis or when other treatments don’t quite do the trick, we have systemic treatments. These are medications that work throughout your body to manage your psoriasis symptoms.

4. UVB Phototherapy: A Personal Touch

Ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy is like a personal conversation with your skin. We use UVB light, naturally found in sunlight, to gently slow down those extra skin cells’ growth. The exposure duration and frequency are tailor-made by our expert doctors, taking your condition’s severity into account.

Everyone’s skin is unique, and so is their response to UVB phototherapy. On average, it takes about four to ten sessions to see the results you’re looking for.

5. Embracing Modern Solutions: Excimer Laser Treatment

For that extra precision in treating specific areas like hands, elbows, and knees, we offer the cutting-edge Excimer Laser Treatment. It’s like giving your skin a little extra attention where it needs it the most.

Your journey with psoriasis is personal, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Our experienced dermatologists are not just experts; they’re compassionate partners dedicated to helping you manage your psoriasis and achieve healthier, clearer skin.

Alopecia Areata

Unlocking Hope: Excimer Laser Treatment at Aura Laser and Cosmetic Clinic

Understanding Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is an unpredictable condition characterized by the sudden loss of hair, resulting in smooth, round or oval patches of baldness. While it typically affects the scalp, it can also manifest on other areas such as the beard, eyebrows, eyelashes, or body hair.

Introducing Excimer Laser Treatment: A Ray of Hope

At Aura Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, we offer Excimer Laser Treatment, a cutting-edge approach that has shown promise in addressing not only psoriatic scars and vitiligo macules but also alopecia areata. Here’s how it works:

Focused Treatment : The EX-308 excimer laser is designed to precisely target active skin conditions. It delivers ultraviolet light through a dedicated handpiece, offering high-dosage treatment for rapid skin repair and long-lasting results.

Who Can Benefit from Excimer Laser?

Excimer laser treatment is a versatile solution that can effectively address:

Excimer laser treatment offers a distinct advantage over topical ointments and creams—it eliminates the need for daily maintenance. While responses to treatment vary among individuals, some patients enjoy months of treatment-free living with no psoriasis remission.

The excimer laser boasts fewer side effects compared to common treatments for psoriasis and vitiligo. Its targeted approach minimizes exposure to healthy skin, ensuring minimal impact on unaffected areas.
During your treatment journey at Aura, our dermatologist will tailor a plan based on your condition’s severity. Each session, lasting only a few minutes, is virtually painless. While some patients experience rapid recovery, others may require additional sessions.
Excimer laser treatment is pain-free and does not require anesthesia. You might feel a gentle warmth after the session, but it’s both mild and short-lived. Rest assured, your comfort is our priority.
The number of sessions required varies based on your specific condition. Our dermatologist will create a personalized treatment plan, considering factors like lesion extent, thickness, and location.
If vitiligo shows no improvement after 20 sessions or psoriasis and alopecia areata do not respond after 10 sessions, the treatment plan may need adjustment.
Before treatment, ensure the target skin area is clean, dry, and free of makeup, lotions, creams, or moisturizers. There’s no need for extensive preparation.

While Excimer laser therapy typically has minimal side effects, some patients may experience brief redness around the lesion area. Serious side effects like blistering and hyper-pigmentation are rare and short-lived during treatment.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is the most prevalent inflammatory skin disease that can arise from various external and internal factors. It has three stages: acute, subacute, and chronic.

Eczemas can be categorized into two main types: exogenous and endogenous eczemas.

A chronic, relapsing skin disorder with a genetic predisposition. It is characterized by different levels of itching and skin inflammation, often seen during infancy or childhood.

A chronic inflammatory condition typically found in seborrheic areas of the body. It can affect individuals of all ages and can be treated with antifungal therapy.

Endogenous Eczemas: Conditions such as nummular eczema, asteatotic eczema, and p-alba are associated with xerosis (dry skin).

Allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis are the two most common types of exogenous eczema.

The cornerstone of managing eczema lies in a comprehensive approach that includes:

Emollients: These are essential for maintaining skin hydration and preventing flare-ups.

Topical Corticosteroids: Often prescribed to reduce inflammation and alleviate itching.

Tacrolimus: A medication that helps suppress the immune response in the skin.

At Aura Laser and Cosmetic Clinic, we offer the best Excimer Laser therapy for the treatment of eczema. The EX-308 excimer laser, approved by the USFDA, is used to effectively treat atopic dermatitis and eczema. This therapy uses Ultraviolet B (UVB) light emission, which is precisely concentrated on the affected skin area.

The new-age technology used in the excimer laser ensures that the light beam is focused solely on the targeted area, preventing exposure to healthy surrounding skin. The precise targeting helps our cosmetologists perform treatments with maximum effectiveness and efficiency.

Long-Lasting Results: Excimer laser therapy offers lasting relief from eczema symptoms.

Pain-Free: Most patients report little to no discomfort during the treatment. Anesthesia is typically unnecessary. Although mild sunburn around the treated area may occur, the recovery period is brief.

If you have questions about eczema or Excimer Laser therapy, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our experienced team. We look forward to guiding you towards a life free from eczema-related concerns.
