When Should You Go For Hair Replacement Procedure?

Strong, healthy and lustrous hair acts as a natural ornament, adding an extra spark to one's personality. Women, particularly, are very possessive about their tresses. They try every effective hair care routine and remedy to maintain their hair. Unfortunately, at times, certain factors can trigger hair problems. For young adults, the problem can be highly demoralizing and depressing. In extreme cases and left with no other options, people opt for the various hair replacement procedures such as Hair Transplant, Hair Weaving, PRP, to name a few. In this article, we will mention the various factors that act as contributing factors triggering a hair replacement.

Conditions That Trigger Hair Replacement
On an average, it is normal for a person to lose between 50-100 hair strands daily. The problem starts when the hair loss exceeds 150 (often 200-250) with very little hair regrowth. With time and if left untreated, the condition worsens with the thinning of the scalp. Soon after baldness sets in (complete, partial or in patches). Men and women may both be equally affected by the condition. Mentioned below are some of the common reasons that result in hair fall, hair thinning and baldness.

Genetics: A term Androgenic Alopecia is often used to describe the severe hair loss in young adults (both the sexes), with the hereditary or genetic condition being the main wrecker in chief. In men, a condition called Male pattern baldness (some even in their early 20's) is characterized by hair loss and baldness mainly from the front part of the scalp and the crown. In women (female pattern baldness), the condition can result in severe hair loss from the crown and the overall thinning of the scalp. However, in most women, the visible signs appear after 40.

The hair loss can also be a part of the normal aging process, a condition medically termed as Involutional Alopecia.

The hair growth cycle consists of three stages-

  1. Anagen, a phase where there is active hair growth.
  2. Catagen, a phase characterized by transitional hair growth.
  3. Telogen, a phase when the shedding of hair takes place.

In some people, there may be a condition known as Telogen effluvium.This condition is characterized by an increased hair fall in the resting phase resulting in temporary thinning of the scalp.

  1. In some people, the hair loss can also be triggered by Alopecia Universalis, a condition where a person starts losing all the body hair at an alarming rate.
  2. Few young adults and children may rapidly start losing hair in patches (Alopecia areata). Over time, the condition may progress into Alopecia Totalis resulting in total baldness. However, the good news is, in most people the condition is reversible.
  3. Certain inflammatory disorders such as acne, folliculitis, lichen planus, to name a few (scarring alopecia), can result in permanent hair loss due to the inability of the hair to undergo regeneration. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Skin Tags - How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Extensions?

Skin Tags - How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Extensions?

A skin tag is a diminutive, harmless, extension of skin that is usually attached from beneath the skin by a tiny support stalk. These skin tags are seen in places which are exposed to frequent friction with clothes or areas that have more skin to skin friction. They hang out from the skin surface. They commonly occur in the neck, underarms, groin, and upper chest. Medically a skin tag is termed as an acrochordon. Often skin tags are also identified as soft warts, fibroma pendulum, pedunculated fibroma, or soft fibromas. 

Reasons why they happen
Skin tags comprise of blood vessels surrounded by skin and loose fibers of collagen. Collagen is a kind of protein located all through the body. Anybody can develop a skin tag irrespective of gender and age, but elder people are prone to skin tags especially those who have type 2 diabetes. 
Skin tags tend to evolve in the layers of the skin folds, where the skin rubs against itself as mentioned earlier, but it is also observed that few individuals get skin tags without any such reason. This is also a reason why skin tags occur more in overweight people as they have more skin folds that are susceptible to chafing. 

Why should you get them removed? 
Most skin tags don't need treatment as they are harmless, but at times people do tend to discard them for cosmetic purpose or may be out of discomfort when they rub against skin or clothing. Checking with your physician in case you doubt the shape of the skin tag and suspect a cancerous element. In such scenario, you will be recommended biopsy for further proceedings if any. 

How is a skin tag removed?
A skin tag is removed through few procedures. Your doctor can consider any of the procedures mentioned below: 

  1. Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy requires chilling the skin tag with nitrogen fluid. Your physician may spray or swab a little amount of liquid nitrogen onto the skin tag. After the treatment, you may have a small blister which will heal by itself. 
  2. Surgical removal: In the case of surgical removal, the skin tag is cut with a scalpel or scissors. The cut might sometimes be deeper in which case the cut will require stitches. Surgical removal has the advantage of obliterating the skin tag, but there is a risk of minor bleeding. Removal of skin tags doesn't require a full anesthesia. Local anesthesia is sufficient. 
  3. Electro SurgeryElectro Surgery is another remedy where the skin tag is burned with electrical energy in high-frequency. The heat is applied through the narrow stem that holds the skin tag to the skin. 
  4. Ligation: Ligation is yet another method where a surgical thread is tied up to remove the tag. 

There are also natural remedies, such as using lotions or essential oils over a period or also over the counter medicines but then a doctor’s advice is always essential to prevent the scope of any scarring, to bleed or other such side effects.

To prevent pimples, eating fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided. To begin with- Take fruit diet once in a week, which consist of fresh juice, fruits, coconut water and vegetable (green leafy). Warm water enema should be taken daily to clean the bowels and constipation. Take a balanced diet with an alkaline base, which consists of sprouted cereals, whole grain cereals and vegetables. Vitamin a, e and b can be used to treat acne. Green tea and walnuts help to keep your skin pimple free. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day is good for emission of toxin from the body. Always try to include low-fat dairy products in your meal. These are a good source of vitamin a. Homoepathic remedies helps to get rid of pimples, scars without side effects permanently If you have any specific question about your condition, consult for treatment. You can buy acne and pimples package offered by me which includes medicine and consultation.

Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area. (In case, you do have dandruff on scalp, that can also lead to acne type eruptins on head).

How To Prevent Dry Skin?

How To Prevent Dry Skin?

Dry skin occurs when your skin lacks the necessary moisture it requires. It tends to make your skin flaky, itchy and sometimes causing red patches especially on your legs, back, arms, or waist. These are the areas we usually forget to moisturize and we tend to concentrate more on our face and hands. Dry skin is usually the result of frequent bathing, use of soaps which are harsh for your skin. Scratching an itchy patch too much will eventually draw blood and might even result in a permanent scar.

However, there are lots of remedies for dry skin, which will help you restore the natural oils of your skin and make your skin glow:

  1. A hot water bath is a strict no for your dry skin: Hot showers tend to remove your body of its natural oil, which is essential to keep your skin moisturized and smooth. A warm shower should last no longer than 5 to 10 minutes. Afterwards, gently pat your skin dry with a towel and immediately slather on the moisturizer.
  2. Do not use harsh soaps: Wash your body with a soapless cleanser when you take a bath. Skin care experts recommend a cleanser that contains ceramides. Ceramides are fatty molecules that help the skin to hold moisture.
  3. Use sunscreen with good SPF: One of the main causes of dry and itchy skin is sun damage. To prevent sun damage, use of sunscreen with a good amount of SPF is essential for your skin. If you're planning to stay out in the sun for more than 15 minutes, make sure you use a sunscreen with SPF 30. There are many moisturizers which have a good amount of SPF.
  4. Moisturize your skin daily: Use moisturizers, which contain ceramides, shea butter and glycerin. Moisturizing your skin daily can easily prevent dry skin. Apply a good moisturizer immediately after taking a shower to trap in the moisture.
  5. Use a face mask: A honey and oatmeal face mask can be used as an exfoliating scrub. Mix together 2 tablespoons of oats with a tablespoon of honey. Spread the mask over your face, keep it for 15 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
