Both men and women alike struggle with balding and hair loss. This can result in negative consequences to one’s self esteem and happiness. If you are seeking to remedy and combat the hair loss you face, there are two treatment options available at Skin and Cancer Institute.
Hair Transplantation by Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a surgical procedure which removes hair roots one by one from the donor area and place them in the recipient balding areas of the scalp. This method is intended to have the hair take root and begin to grow.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, on the other hand, reactivates dormant hair follicles and is less invasive than FUE transplantation. The patient has blood drawn, which is placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from other cells. The physician then fills the syringe with the plasma and injects it into the treatment areas of the scalp where balding has occurred. Local anesthesia is given prior to the treatment.
What Is the Difference between Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and FUE Hair Transplantation?
PRP therapy uses only shallow injections while Advanced FUE requires small incisions. In addition, both treatments work differently. FUE works to redistribute active hair follicles. PRP does not distribute active hair follicles; but rather, stimulates the follicles where they are to activate them.

If you live in Phoenix, it is very likely that you have sun exposure that may be harmful, especially if your skin is not protected by gear or SPF. The summer months with high heat temperatures doesn’t help either. Currently, the month of September has seen high temperatures exceeding 100 degrees. This is very dangerous heat and sun exposure to residents of Phoenix. Many patients find themselves being at risk for skin cancer or precancerous skin lesions as well as other harmful growths that evolve if in the sun for lengthy periods of time.
Skin Cancer Variations
Basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, merkel cell carcinoma and sebaceous carcinoma are types of skin cancer treated by board-certified dermatologists. Each type of carcinoma spreads and affects the body differently. For example, merkel cell carcinoma can affect nerve endings and thereby infiltrate the lymph nodes, brain, bones, and lungs. Melanoma by contrast, is the result of a pigmentation mutation called melanin. The cells can mutate causing skin cancer.
Our dermatologists and skin cancer surgeons can help alleviate your concerns. Examination and detection are very important to your timely treatment.
Dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Bellafill, Radiesse, Xeomin, and Belotero Balance are offered at Skin and Cancer Institute for treating fine lines, augmenting certain features like the lips, defining the cheekbones and filling or adding volume to sunken areas of the face.
Botox is also available for the treatment of unwanted frown lines and sagging skin at the eyebrows, forehead, mouth, and around the eyes. Botox works by paralyzing the muscle by releasing a chemical that blocks the muscle contractions.
Facial rejuvenation procedures are also available in the form of facials, chemical peels, laser treatment, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and non surgical facelift.

Eczema can be a disturbing skin condition for many adults and children. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes inflammation in the skin. Atopic dermatitis is one form of eczema. Dry scaly skin that appears raised, bumpy or has a rough texture like sandpaper can be difficult to live with.
Treatments include steroids, ointments, and creams. Eczema can be found in adults, but is also very common in newborn infants and toddlers. Eczema can cause discomfort and itchiness. It is advised not to itch these dry patches, because it can open up the lesion.
Eczema in Babies Can be Affected by Diet
Breastfed babies may find themselves more susceptible to developing eczema. Often times, lactating mothers try to eliminate certain foods and dairy from their diet to see if the eczema will go away. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggested that mothers who are nursing with infants at high risk of developing Atopic Dermatitis should avoid the following: peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, cow’s milk, and fish from their diets

Hydrafacial is a nourishing, hydrating cosmetic facial treatment. During a hydrafacial treatment, dead skin cells are removed and a serum is applied. Exfoliation and extractions are also done prior the application of the serum. The procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
The benefits of the hydrafacial include treating brown spots, enlarged pores, texture, elasticity and more. While it a relaxing, pampering treatment with all the perks of a facial, it has a more hydrating and refreshing result. With cleaner looking skin, your face will glow and look much healthier after just one treatment. If you are interested in a cosmetic relaxation yet rejuvenating facial treatment, you may opt for a hydrafacial at LA Laser Center with our team of experienced nurses and aestheticians.
A PDO thread lift is a rejuvenation treatment for the face. Specifically, it tightens loose, saggy facial skin and re-defining the contours of the face. While it lifts the cheeks, it also lifts the eyelids and brows. It allows for re-positioning of the facial skin without surgery.
Sutures are used during the procedure to complete the full effect. Some side effects may include swelling, bruising, and soreness which should subside within days.
Benefits of a Thread Lift
The result is a rejuvenated, refreshed more youthful face. With minimal downtime, the results are worthwhile. The procedure stimulates the production of collagen, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, improves the skin tone and firms the skin. This procedure rejuvenates the facial tissues in the skin and is less invasive than a facelift.
