What Afterglow can do for growths

Laser Skin Resurfacing for Growths

The physician uses a controlled beam of energy allowing for exact penetration of depth into the dermis in order to vaporize the damaged acne-scarred skin in a safe and predictable manner.

The treated areas begin a regeneration process, resulting in regrowth, healing, and smoother, more even skin.

It is most widely used as a treatment for the face but can be done on the neck, chest and back as well.

Afterglow's state-of-the-art laser skin resurfacing technology is the industry gold standard. The procedure is a very precise, controlled, physician administered treatment where thin sections of skin are removed, layer by layer, and are replaced by younger skin growth.

Surgical Removal

In some cases, surgical removal with or without stitches may be more appropriate. The two basic techniques used are the shave technique and the full excision method.

During a consultation, Dr. Ebrahim will examine the growth to be removed and explain the recommended procedure.
