There are various kinds of moles, some benign (non-cancerous), some malignant (cancerous). At times even the most innocent looking mole can take a dangerous toll. Some moles may only need removal for aesthetic reasons, while others must be removed for the safety of patients. Whether a mole is being removed for a cosmetic reason or for a medically necessary reason, lasers offer a satisfactory treatment option depending on the type of the mole. We advise you to have a thorough evaluation of your mole by a competent skin specialist before tampering with it. For more information on moles and their removal click here

Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal can be used to remove excessive and cosmetically disabling hair on face including chin, upper lip, sideburns, legs, arms, armpits and groin or bikini area. Laser hair removal treatment is much more effective on dark thick hair than on fine delicate hair. Several laser hair removal treatment sessions are required with spacing in between depending upon the body area and hair density being targeted. Laser hair removal treatments are less painful and much quicker than electrolysis, threading, waxing or depilatory creams. Also, they give lasting results. At Cosmetique® we use the best lasers by the most reputed companies worldwide. For more information on laser hair removal at Cosmetique® click here.
