Rejuvenate your skin with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Hello, everyone, I am Dr. Rashmi Sharma I am a Dermatologist practising in Vasant Kunj New Delhi. Today I am going to talk upon the technology called is PRP. So what is PRP? PRP is nothing but platelet-rich plasma or platelet concentrate in plasma, which is utilised for its growth factors. So the interesting fact about PRP is that it is already been there for several years in other field but recently does gain an importance in the field of cosmetics. So what does platelet do, the platelet is rich in various growth factors like platelet-derived growth factors, vascular endothelial growth factors, fibroblast-derived growth factors and various other growth factors which are utilised for the procedure. So now comes what are the various indications for PRP, there are various number of indications for PRP in Dermatology like for face rejuvenation, hand rejuvenation, for the androgenetic alopecia wherein BCA receding hairlines onto the skull, which is hormone-dependent type of alopecia, also for the alopecia areata, where there is a patchy lot of hair presented the scalp or onto the beard area, where it is injected and the results are rapidly seen. Also for other Dermatology indications lipodermatosclerosis, lichen sclerosis and nevertheless, it is very useful in case of chronic non-healing type of ulcer. Now comes to mind, how does PRP is how is it done, so the various methods to prepare the PRP. It can be prepared manually by heavy or light spin method in the laboratory and it can also be prepared by means of automated devices which are commercially available like, I do in my clinic by means of automated commercially available device by means of it, it can be rapidly prepared within a span of 5-10 minutes. Now how do we do this, as soon as the patient comes in stage 1 wherein, the face is cleaned and a topical thick layer of local anaesthetic is applied onto the face or onto the scalp, whichever is the desired area? So we wait for about half an hour, in the meanwhile what we do, we prepared the PRP as in we take the butterfly needle, which is a very tiny needle. By means of which, the sample is collected we need about 10 to 15 ml of the sample and the tube is there which is already coated with the gel, which is ACD which prevents the platelet from coagulation. Now in this gel coated tubes, the volume of the blood is collected. Then comes the stage 3, wherein, there is a separation of the PRP and the blood is spun in a centrifuge machine at a particular rate and is the prepared in about 5, 10 minutes, after that, this PRP is taken into the various microneedles. The one which is used in a saline syringe, it is a very tiny needle, so it makes the process very comfortable for the patient. After that we clean the face under all acceptive precautions, the injection is placed onto the desired area which can be faced like we do for the fine wrinkles around the eyes, for the forehead lines or lines around the lips or it also done for the scalp, most commonly for the diffuse, hair loss after so many chemical treatments the hair loss is very common to everyone. So the PRP is very effective in that also. After the procedure, the micro punctures are created which takes about 1 day 2 heal, post that, the patient can go back and resume is work. The most important and the best for the PRP is its 100% natural, it’s absolutely safe, there are no side effects and there's no downtime. Immediately after the process the patient can go and resume his work and nevertheless most important the is cost-effectiveness of the therapy, if we compare the PRP to other treatment which is like hyaluronic acid injection or artificial collision is very costly, So the PRP is economic compare to them and it also add on to the other modalities like it also prolongs the duration of the exogenous collision which is injected artificially like hyaluronic acid injection. The PRP can also be combining with the other procedures like chemical peels, derma rollers, mesotherapy, post lasers and many other procedures. The PRP is a very effective treatment and so what is the duration between the 2 sessions. Usually, what we do, we repeat the PRP at 4 weekly intervals and the maximum no. of 6 sessions is very useful for the sessions to be completed. Also, in my practice, I have personally seen a very good result with this one treatment of PRP. So all this leads to the PRP as a very effective treatment now, I think this is all about the PRP now.

Sugar - Harmful Effects Of It!

Sugar - Harmful Effects Of It!

Almost every person salivates over desserts and sweets. One does not need a special occasion to get their sweet tooth going. While the lip smacking sugary delight might impress the taste buds, it is sure to affect the health in a big way. If you thought that sugar was only bad for your waistline and general health, then you need to know that it is equally harmful for your skin. In fact, it can lead to serious dermatological conditions.

Harmful effects of sugar on the skin

A lot of what we eat reflects on our body externally. A number of internal changes can influence the external appearance of the body. Excessive intake of carbohydrates, starch and sugar can have an adverse effect on the skin. It can also accelerate the ageing process. But what triggers these complications needs to be understood and discussed in detail.

Carbohydrates can be simple or complex. Simple carbohydrates (cake, bread; to name a few) break down and convert to glucose rapidly. Increased glucose level implies increased insulin level, and causes inflammation, which affects the whole body. The enzymes produced during inflammation breaks down important proteins, namely elastin and collagen, leading to wrinkles and saggy skin.

Acne problems mainly arise from Glycation (the process through which digested sugar attaches permanently to the collagen). Glycation plays a significant role in accelerating the ageing process.

Complex carbohydrates, on the other hand, is good for health. When ingested, complex carbohydrates break down at a much slower rate. As a result, there is no abnormal increase in the insulin level.

Corrective measures to check the harmful effects of sugar on the skin:

With a little care and preventive measures, the deleterious effects of sugar on the skin can be minimised.

  1. Supplement your diet with foods rich in antioxidants. Lean proteins, fibrous foods and diets rich in good fats are highly recommended. Include beans and nuts that have low glycemic value in your diet. Drink plenty of water.
  2. Food items containing high amount of saturated fats (cheese, ice creams, fried foods; to name a few), and with high glycemic value should be strictly avoided.
  3. Do not compromise with your sleep. A sound sleep and a stress-free life is the mantra to a glowing and youthful skin.
  4. Practice meditation and yoga diligently. The rewarding and positive outcomes will leave you in awe.
  5. Do not skip your meals or indulge in overeating. Have small servings at regular intervals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Skin - 5 Ways To Protect It In Summers!

Skin - 5 Ways To Protect It In Summers!

Staying out in the sun too long can cause you to suffer from a host of skin problems such as age spots, wrinkles and even increase your risk of developing skin cancer. During the summer months, you need to take extra care of yourself as the sun is at its peak at that time. Here's what you can do in this summer to ensure that your skin remains protected:

1. Avoid the rays of the sun between 10 am and 2 pm - The strength of the UV rays depends on a number of factors such as reflective surfaces, height, and time of day. The sun's UV rays are at their strongest between 10 am and 2 pm. If you're outdoors, seek a cool area to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun. You could stand under a tree or use an umbrella to shield yourself from its ultraviolet rays.

2. Don't use tanning beds - Several studies reveal that tanning beds can cause skin cancer. According to these studies, individuals under 30 who use tanning beds increase their risk of melanoma (the most deadly of all skin cancers) by about 75%.

3. Increase your fluid intake - One of the ways in which you can beat the sun and protect your skin is by increasing your fluid intake during this time. On an average, one should have about 3 liters of fluids every day, which is about 1.5-2 liters of water and 1 liter of fluid from solid foods. From summer foods like watermelon and berries to beverages like fruit juice, milk, etc and liquid-based meals - all these avenues should be considered.


4. Have a proper cleansing regimen - To help your skin look fresh even during the summer months, you should exfoliate regularly. When you do this, all the dead skin cells are removed, giving your face a youthful and fresh appeal.

5. Use a sunscreen all the time - To protect yourself from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun, you should never forget to apply sunscreen when going out. Ideally, a sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 should be applied thoroughly to your skin 30 minutes before leaving your house. More importantly, it should be applied again every 2 hours.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hairfall - 6 Major Causes Of It!

Normally you shed 50 to 100 hairs all day but hair grows back all the time to cover for this loss. If you shed more than this then it may be a cause for worry. Hair fall can occur because of many factors. Here are six major causes of hair loss you need to know:

  1. Hereditary causes: Hair loss may be in your genes. Male/female pattern baldness is the main cause of hair fall in most individuals. Early hair thinning, brittle hair and shortening of hair in a pattern (forehead getting bigger, bald patches developing) are indicators of developing baldness.
  2. Hormonal Causes: Thyroid problems can cause extensive hair fall. Pregnancy can be another reason for hair loss as your normal hormonal cycles are affected in a big way.
  3. Medical conditions: Alopecia areata is a disease which causes patchy hair loss. The immune system attacks hairs, causing sudden hair loss leaving small bald patches on the scalp. Numerous scalp infections like cellulitis and ringworms cause hair loss, however, this is temporary and hair grows back after the disease is cured.

Frequent and unmediated use of hair products and coloring agents also leads to hair loss. Poor nutrition and too much consumption of junk food can be other major causes of hair loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Scabies And Complications Related To It!

Scabies is a type of skin conditions that causes itching and rashes. This dermatological condition is caused by Sarcoptes scabiei, a microscopic mite. It is a contagious condition, which can spread through physical contact. An estimate shows that scabies infects over 300 million people worldwide per year.

This eight-legged microscopic mite creates a tunnel in the human skin and lays eggs in it. These larvae move under the surface of the skin and spread across the whole body, once hatched. Dogs, cats, and mice can also be affected by this disease. It usually takes 2-6 weeks for the symptoms to develop. Signs and symptoms of scabies involve itching, rashes, sores and thick crusts on the surface of the skin.

Some of the risk factors of scabies are:

- Scabies spreads through direct, prolonged skin-to-skin contact with a person who has mites.
- An infected person can easily pass scabies to his/her household or sexual partners. Scabies in adults is usually sexually acquired.
- The likelihood of scabies increases easily under crowded conditions, which involve close body and skin contact. Nursing homes, prisons, and several types of care facilities are sites of scabies outbreaks.

- Immunocompromised, elderly and disabled people also suffer from an increased likelihood of contracting this skin condition.

Complications of scabies include:

- Persistent and vigorous scratching can break the surface of your skin, which can lead to secondary bacterial infections. Impetigo, a superficial infection, is a quite common occurrence in such cases.
- Crusted scabies, the most severe form of scabies, can be common in certain groups. People suffering from diseases such as HIV or leukemia who have weakened immune systems as well as severely ill people have high risks of contracting this condition. This condition, also known as Norwegian scabies, is very contagious and also hard to cure.

Skin Tags - Causes And Treatment

MBBS, D.V.D.L, Fellowship, DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Delhi
Skin Tags - Causes And Treatment

Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are small brown or darker-than-skin tone growths on the surface of the skin. Tags are very common and harmless growths and tend to occur on the neck, under the breasts, armpits, eyelids and folds of the groin. They generally take place after midlife. About 25% of people report having skin tags after they cross the age of 50.

What causes skin tags to occur?
Skin tags are very common among diabetics and obese individuals. Pregnant women also develop skin tags, as a consequence of changes in the body's hormonal levels. Skin tags tend to occur when your skin rubs against clothing or skin. They are normally caused by blood vessels and collagen that gets trapped inside the thicker portions of the skin. For this reason, they are typically found in folds and creases of the skin. Sometimes, they reduce on their own if blood supply to the tissue has been disrupted due to them getting twisted.

What procedures are involved in their treatment?

Skin tags are generally removed for purely cosmetic reasons but when they do become troublesome, as in, they rub against jewelry, skin or clothing, doctors recommend their removal as the area can end up becoming irritated.

The following procedures are performed to remove these annoying growths on skin:
1. Excision - In this procedure the skin tag gets removed using a scalpel.
2. Ligation - The procedure involves the cutting off of blood supply to the skin tag.
3. Cauterization - The procedure involves the burning off the skin tag using electrolysis (process that involves decomposition of a matter by electric current)
4. Cryosurgery - In this procedure, the skin tag is frozen before removing it. An instrument containing liquid nitrogen is used to do the removal. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

How To Control Common Skin Problems In Children?

How To Control Common Skin Problems In Children?

Problems with the skin during the teenage years are very common. Although skin issues can be really stressful, the right skin care treatment can help in controlling the problems you may face during this time. Here are some of the skin issues that you may face at this stage of life and ways to prevent them:

1. Oily Skin: Oily skin is a very common occurrence during teenage years. To a certain extent, oily skin may be due to genetics but for some, it may be due to hormonal changes that cause excess oil to be produced on the skin surface. In order to not inflame the skin further, individuals with oily skin shouldn't overly scrub their skin as well as not use harsh cleansers to clean the face. More importantly, when you do use a cleanser on your face, you should only do so two times a day. If you go overboard, it would only do more harm than good.

2. Acne: Whether it is blackheads, whiteheads or spots filled with pus, acne affects about 80% of teenagers at some point in their lives. Teenagers are more prone to this problem because the hormone levels during this time are especially high, resulting in an increase in the magnitude of sebaceous glands and the oil that is produced. When too much oil is produced, this, along with dead skin cells block, the follicles, giving rise to acne. There are certain ways in which you can prevent it from occurring, such as always having a bath after any strenuous activity, not picking or touching the problem areas and washing acne-prone spots only two times a day.


3. Excessive Sweating: Excessive sweating is another major cause of concern for teenagers. The problem can be due to two different conditions - stress or hyperhidrosis (a condition wherein you sweat excessively on a daily basis). Wearing clothes made from cotton, using antiperspirants as well as avoiding drinks and foods that may cause episodes of excessive sweating are some of the ways in which you can keep the problem in control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

If left untreated, the condition can go on from being mild to severely painful. Here are some sure-shot ways that can help you to get rid of your toenail fungus:

Non-surgical methods:

The treatment may be time-consuming but it is definitely reliable. Oral anti-fungal drugs when combined with topical anti-fungal therapies serve to solve your ailment in the best possible manner.
  • Medicated nail polish: Anti-fungal nail polish is another non-surgical medical treatment for toenail fungus. It can be applied and re-applied on the infected nail at regular intervals.
  • Medicated nail cream: Topical anti-fungal creams prescribed by the doctor can be used to get rid of toenail fungus. It works best on thin nails.
