Look your best

Tuesday, November 06, 2018

The medical field offers many procedures to keep you looking good for the festive season. Dr Mohan Thomas outlines some of these

This is the season of festivals and marriages. Good clothes, splendid hair-dos, fantastic make-up and glowing skin with that perfect look is what people aim for during these social days.

Ladies desire a blemish-free skin, hairless body and fuller lips.  Males desire a wrinkle-free skin and a shapely body. They are also looking for that chiseled jawline and that customised beard shaping to get a permanent look.

Nonsurgical procedures are in demand and they include the following

Laser hair removal

For a very long time ladies have been addressing body hair by threading, waxing or shaving. With the world-class Alma laser, hair from all parts of the body can be removed in a few sessions, not only in women but also in men, to get that smooth chest and back. It is effective against dark and light hair too. The skin stays smooth for many years once the laser hair removal sessions have completed. One can also address resistant white and dark hair in people who have not achieved improvement in spite of multiple sessions elsewhere. A clinical assessment and hormonal tests are usually required.

Skin whitening and glow

Antioxidants including Glutathione, when administered as injections and/ or in the form of capsules, give a glow to the skin as well as change the skin colour.

Uneven pigmentation, unwanted tattoos and scars

The depigmenting Alma Laser is the safest and most precise laser treatment solution available for removal of pigmented lesions and multi-color tattoo. This laser is safe and accurate with very rapid and short sessions with built-in safety measures so that it can be used on any Indian skin type. This is the treatment that in a few sessions can give a clean, blemish-free back, face and arms.

Procedures for that youthful look

These involve Botulinum toxin and facial fillers.  The results are apparent within five days and are good for a period of four to six months.  Furthermore the look can be enhanced over a longer duration with the use of permanent make-up.

Facials and chemical peels

These retain that youthful and fresh look in people who want to maintain the liveliness in their skin. The fine lines and the flaky skin need a fresh coat of live cells, which is possible through these treatments.

Thread lifts

The most in demand treatment for ladies who want to look their younger self instantaneously without the downtime of surgery is the thread lift. This procedure not only repositions the drooping tissues but also gives people the chiseled look with clean- cut jawlines.

Body shaping procedures like liposuction and breast augmentation are sought by people who want to look shapely and get a jump start.  A word of caution is that there should be a lead time of about three to four weeks before the festival. Moreover these are surgical procedures carrying their own documented risks.  Selection of the right and appropriately skilled surgeon is a smart bet.
