Firstly its a very safe procedure if done by an expert in proper set up. Transplanted hair grow like normal hair and can cut color trim like normaal hair. Result of transplanted hair are permanent. Following points should be kept in mind before going for transplant. Being a hair transplant surgeon these are after care we recommend to our pts After Care: •Go home on the same day with a small dressing in the donor area and a cap. •Application of ice over forehead and massage with fingers to reduce swelling •Avoid lying in face down position for 2-3 days •Shampooing gently after 5 days •Wear a loose cap to cover the grafts from dust and sunlight •Dry scabs will shed by 10-14 days •New hair growth starts at 10-12 weeks •Transplanted hair continues to grow at about 1 cm every month •Final result may take 8-10 months. Regarding cost one needs to assess your area to estimate no of follicles needed to be transplanted most important do not fall into a trap in the name of cheap procedure its not worth taking risk. Check the doctors credentials before Recently a medical student died after transplant because he opted for cheap procedure & treating doctors were not qualified to do the surgery.

Hello, for the uneven skin tone, you need uv protection. Use a cream for even tone along with uv perfect sun screen everyday. Cover your skin before going out. Wash your face twice a day with a face wash that suits your skin. Use rose water to clean your face before sleeping. If your skin is normal to dry, you can use a night cream. Scrub your face once in a while to purify-drink more water-eat healthy-you may take safi or tablet nutraskin everyday.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

I am facing hair loss for 3 months kindly suggest me some treatments or any medicines.
Hi. It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash.

Dear lybrate user, during pragnancy you should not take any medicine without consulting the doctor. You should keep your hands off your acne. Do not play with them. Do not squeesed them. Just leave them alone. Lemon is natural bleach. Vitamin c in lemon will helps in rebuilding collagen so use lemon juice on your acne scar, the spots will get lighter day by day. Apply lemon juice on your face for 15 minutes directly.

If you have eczema, it is important to take good care of your skin. Take warm (not hot!) baths on a regular basis and immediately applying moisturizers afterward will help keep your skin moist. •Moisturize every day. •Wear cotton or soft fabrics. Avoid rough, scratchy fibers and tight clothing. •Take lukewarm baths and showers, using mild soap or non-soap cleanser •Gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel – do not rub. •Apply a moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing to “lock in” moisture. •When possible, avoid rapid changes of temperature and activities that make you sweat. •Learn your eczema triggers and avoid them. •Use a humidifier in dry or cold weather. •Keep your fingernails short to help keep scratching from breaking the skin. •Some people with allergies find it helps to remove carpets from their house, and give pets dander treatments.

How can I do my hair silky, smooth, shiny and strong? And how can remove hair fall?
Deep condition every alternate week. Use a deep conditioner that contains protein at least twice a month to strengthen hair. Hot oil treatment with olive oil to intensely moisten the hair follicles is also very effective to stop hair fall.
