Can laser hair removal cause skin cancer?

No. There are absolutely no studies that suggest this myth. Somehow this myth is more common in less developed or underdeveloped countries like in Pakistan. Most of the people who share this view are those who are not even doctors.

    sir i just wana know dat how much liposuction cost?
    plz reply me

  • The cost of liposuction depends on the size of the area that needs liposuction. For example the cost of liposuction of the abdomen ranges between 60,000 and 120,00 rupees.

  • The options for keloid removal include surgical removal (which I usually DO NOT recommend), laser like Pulsed dye Laser and injection of dilute steroids into the keloid and last but not the least cryotherapy. The cost depends upon the size and number of keloids that need treatment. the range is anwhere from Rs 3,000 to 20,000, however it can be less or more than that as mentioned above.

  • Dear Junaid,
    The price/cost depends upon what kind of scars and how many of them need to be treated. For example the cost of Fraxel or Mosaic laserper treatment ranges between 10,000 tp 20,000 rupees in most cases whereas the skin filler for deep scars may range between 15 to 25 thousads rupees. you can call to make an appointment to see me or one of my colleagues and discuss all the possible options and then see what is recommended and affordable.

  • With cancer being the second leading cause of death, I want to see it anialated. I don’t know if this is entirely possible, but we do have a beginning. We can learn and teach the signs and symptoms of cancer in order to achieve earlier diagnoses. Some cancers are curable if found early. This is why I yearn to teach the signs of cancer! Thank you for this site and please continue to teach!
