I’m Dr. A.K. Chatterjee. I’m a dermatologist with over 25 years of experience and I retired from a medical college and government hospital in 2013 and since then I’m in private practice. There are many skin problems which are very common and which have got multiple side effects and problems for the patients, but I am dealing, I shall deal with a very common skin problem now, which is a father infection, which is very common these days and there are multiple causes.

There are causes like good, improper hygiene, then very common infection among people in the community, so it spreads contact to contact and there are various other methods, for example from self contact to one part of the body to another, then from one person to another. So, there are multiple problems and people are really fed up with this because with common medicines they are just suppressed and are not cured. Especially what is problematic is people go to general practitioners or even quacks who prescribe steroids and which basically suppresses this thing but can never help to get rid of the fungus.

So there are various treatments which I prescribe and I have actually cured this in many people but it takes little time and patience. So any of you is suffering from this problem you can please come directly to me in my clinic. I’ve got two clinics, one in Mayur Vihar phase 2 and one in Shahdara. You can also contact me through lybrate.

Thank you.

Ageing Skin - Know Its Causes!

MBBS, DVD

Ageing Skin - Know Its Causes!

Ageing is the only inevitable truth. However, it does not mean that it has to be reflected on your body. Skin loses collagen as you grow older and collagen is the element in your skin which keeps your skin tight and firm when you are young. Loss of collagen leads to skin sagging.

The causes behind ageing of skin can be both extrinsic as well as intrinsic. The main classifications of the causes are:

  1. Biological: This is an intrinsic factor which relies on the genes of the body and hence, it is out of our control. Naturally, with age, the regenerating capabilities of your body gradually lose pace due to the various hormonal changes that occur over time. A healthy lifestyle can go a long way in helping your skin look as young as possible.
  2. Environmental: Being an extrinsic factor, environmental factors that cause the skin to age can be controlled. Some of these factors, such as pollution, harmful rays of the sun, stress and unfavourable weather conditions are capable of damaging the skin. Sun exposure i.e. exposure to the UV rays of the sun, is deemed to be the primary reason behind skin ageing.
  3. Mechanical: Repeated behaviour over an extended period of time, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., can cause grooves to be formed on the skin. These grooves may be permanent and hence, contribute to ageing skin.

How do you treat it?

A holistic approach is extremely vital for the treatment as well as control of ageing skin. The quality and features of skin differ among individuals and hence, the needs of the skin will vary too. Due to this reason, depending on the skin types and needs of the person, the skin care routine needs to be specialised and focussed.

To facilitate a specialised approach to ageing skin, a thorough analysis would be conducted by the dermatologists to understand what the skin needs and accordingly, diagnose the causes and symptoms of ageing skin. The diagnosis will allow the dermatologist to estimate the severity of the skin problem. This analysis will help the doctors to determine the adequate approach to address the ageing skin. A combination of services and technologies would be recommended based on the analysis. This combination would incorporate methods such as collagen building (with foods such as berries and dark green veggies), micro derma peels and skin tightening, as well as effective home skin care products which can be used to boost the skin’s beauty. The proposed approach would work to fill wrinkles, boost collagen and tighten sagging skin to make the skin look as natural as possible.

Sandalwood is also one of the major ingredients for a sunscreen as it can protect the skin from the harmful UV rays.
