A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that allows controlled damage on the skin, prompting the exfoliation of outer skin cells and the regeneration of newer, smoother skin. Chemical peels are effective in removing acne and acne scars, improving the appearance of liver spots and freckles, removing irregular skin pigmentation and wrinkles, smoothening scaly patches and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. During the application of the chemical solution, a slight burning sensation may be felt for a few minutes. This is followed by medium to deep peeling over a period of up to 14 days. Chemical peels may be repeated for long lasting results.

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive technique used to permanently eliminate unwanted hair by exposing the targeted body parts to pulses of laser light that effectively destroys the hair follicle. Laser hair removal is fast, precise and convenient with patients experiencing permanent hair loss in just about three to seven sessions. Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted growth in the face, arm, leg, underarm, bikini line, and virtually any area of the body. This procedure is most effective for individuals with dark hair and have light skin complexion.
