If your dark circkes are hereditary, they will be more stubborn. Taking care aline will not help. You will have to get laser treatment. Also use under eye cream, keep applying time to time and apply in goid amount before sleeping.

Chemical Peel - What All Does It Treat?

Chemical Peel - What All Does It Treat?

Chemical peels are a skin care procedure that can be used on the face, neck, and even the hands in order to remove and prevent fine lines. These peels are also helpful in treating age spots and blemishes. These peels can be a part of one’s regular skin care regimen in order to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Read on to know more about chemical peels and the various types available.

The procedure: Chemical peels usually follow a specific procedure where a chemical solution is applied to the skin which makes upper layer to peel off. The new skin that emerges is usually free of wrinkles and smoother as compared to the old skin.

What all does it treat: There are a variety of skin problems that can be treated by chemical peels, including reduction of age spots, dark patches, and other scars. It can also treat severe forms of acne even as it prevents fine lines and wrinkles that have been caused due to constant sun exposure and aging. Also, it reduces the fine lines that form under the eyes and around the mouth. This treatment can also help in treating freckles and dark patches that may be caused due to hormonal changes that happen during pregnancy and also due to birth control pills. It basically gives you smooth and supple skin.

Light peels: This is one of the most commonly used types of chemical peels. These include lactic, salicylic acid and glycolic peels. This type of chemical peel is a mild one that makes the pores smaller and treats surface problems like acne, blackheads, as well as other skin imperfections like light skin discolouration and freckles. This kind of peel is quick and easy to administer, and can help in stimulating collagen production to keep the skin supple. One will typically need about four sittings in a span of two to four weeks.

Medium depth chemical peels: These are stronger peels that show more dramatic results. They may cause visible flaking and peeling after the procedure has been carried out. These peels are usually used to fix the problems that come about due to sun damage. Also, these peels can decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and large pores. These peels can also repair the patches that appear due to pigmentation problems. One will need a session at least once every three months to maintain the results.

Deep chemical peels: These peels have more risk and deeper complications. They are used for very severe cases that include permanent hyperpigmentation which brings about darkening of the skin. Also, it can fix lightening of the skin due to hypopigmentation. It can also be used for the removal of scars. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Hair growth and fall ratio is 80: 20. Always 20% of the hair are into fall phase so loosing 50 to 100 strands on daily basis while oiling, washing and combing is normal. Apart from this if the hair comes out even on slightest touch or if you notice hair on pillow then it is considered as hair fall. There are various reasons for getting hair fall. Nutritional deficiency, stress, thyroid problem malaria, typhoid are few of the reasons. Eating protein rich diet like sprouts, beans, nuts, soya are good for hair. Green leafy vegetables are good source of iron. Drinking 3 lit of water/day will support minerals. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week. Consult trichologist for treatment.

In last two days there was change in colour of my mole on my face, now I have almost 10-12 moles on my face on a whole. Is this a dangerous sign? Does sunlight effects pigmentation in moles. Pls suggest me.

MBBS, MD - MD- Skin & VD
Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
It is a dangerous sign if they have grown suddenly, not if they appeared gradually. You need to see a doctor, if the mole is: -Getting bigger -Changing shape, particularly getting an irregular edge -Changing colour – getting darker, becoming patchy or multi shaded -Loss of symmetry – the two halves of your mole do not look the same Itching or painful -Bleeding or becoming crusty -Looking inflamed These are the melanoma symptoms of a mole. See your doctor.

keep your face dry, wash 4-5 time a day, apply retino-a cream at night and wash your face before sun rise as sun rays can darken your face. Welcome

Hii lybrate-user, as you are suffering from psoriasis since 1 year, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients.
