Plastic surgeons are wielding their beams to vanquish all our skin nightmares. Like a magic wand, a laser beam can smooth out scars and vaporise annoying moles and freckles and let’s face it, beauty does boost confidence. Unfortunately, these technologies and medical treatments are a niche for only those who can afford them. 

Following the Laser Revolution Conference (LRC) earlier in November, plastic surgeon, Dr. Hani Nabil of InShape Clinic announced the launch of an initiative for free laser treatment of skin problems and diseases for indigent patients. “During the conference, many journalists covering the event asked how the less privileged can benefit from the latest innovations in laser treatments that were being discussed. I felt I had to contribute to the community which has given so much to me,” Dr. Nabil tells us.

Dr Nabil is the founder of InShape Clinic, a beauty, healthcare, and wellness centre located in Heliopolis and Mohandeseen - each of these clinics will offer any skin laser treatment to 20 patients on the first Thursday of every month. “40 cases will be treated monthly by top laser consultants – skin irregularities and damages, blemishes, acne, scars, freckles; we will provide any laser service for free, other than hair removal because this procedure although can be convenient is not a necessity,” adds Dr. Nabil.

Donating money to local charities isn't the only way we can give back to our community. We often forget that charity work can take a variety of different forms which depend on our own set of skills and this initiative of free laser treatment is a clear reinforcement of that.
