Who would like to wax or pluck their hair, if something as safe and as effective as LHR is available? What are the benefits of getting a laser hair removal done? A) It helps you look good, B) It improves your self-confidence, thirdly it is a treatment for ingrown hair and it acts as a co-therapy in certain diseases like Pilonidal sinus and hidradenitis suppurativa and above all its saves your time and money. What are the lasers which help you in removing hair? There are multiple lasers starting from IPL, Nd:YAG and diode but in our Indian skin Nd:YAG and diode are what we follow and they have great results. Who is the best candidate for laser removal hair now? Ideally, laser hair removal can be done for both males and females; there are different areas which we target for males and females. There are common areas for females like upper lips, chin, side locks face, bikini and underarms, whereas for males we have beard, chest, back but definitely laser hair removal or reduction is for both males and females. Who will get the best result out of laser hair reduction one who is having coarse hair and one who is having darker hair? If you have blond hair, white hair or grey hair laser is not that effective. How does a laser act, it acts on the 2 things it acts on the root, it acts on the pigment that is why there are few prerequisites before you get your laser removal therapy started you should not do bleaching, you should not do waxing, threading and plucking before you start your sessions because if you do waxing, plucking and threading you will end up damaging the root the laser sessions will not be effective if you will do bleaching the pigment will be damage again the laser sessions will not be effective.

How many number of sessions are required? See we divide the body into 2 parts above the neck you require more number of sessions approximately 8 to 10 sessions, whereas, below the neck, you require 6 to 8 sessions. The sessions are placed anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks gap. How a laser hair removal session is done you come down to the clinic we mark the area, we prepare your skin by cleansing and by shaving it then we apply a cool gel and then we give shots. After setting the parameters in the machine taking care of what is the quality of your skin, what is the colour of your skin, what is the colour of your hair and how is the thickness of your hair. After giving the shots there is a bit of redness which can be controlled by applying emolium cream, sunscreen the post top care is also not much where we give, where we ask you to use proper sunscreen or avoid the sun and not to do steam, sauna and hot bath kind of things. Plus we ask you not to do any other procedures like dermaroller or any other laser for at least 2 weeks post procedures. But it is very safe and an effective procedure, patients come to me and ask me how painful is it. Now coming to that it is definitely not that painful as what you experience in waxing, you will feel a pricking sensation but it is not something which makes you uncomfortable. So it’s a very safe and effective procedure. So what are you waiting for go and consult your Dermatologist and get that flawless skin?

Hi, I am Dr Anuj Saigal, consultant Dermatologist and a Hair Transplant expert.<br/><br/>Whenever...

Hi, I am Dr Anuj Saigal, consultant Dermatologist and a Hair Transplant expert.

Whenever someone thinks of getting Hair transplant done, there are multiple questions that comes to the mind starting from where should I get it done? which technique should I choose? What will be the side effects? What will be the post of period like?

The most commonly encountered type of hair loss thata a practising hair transplant surgeon sees these days is Androgenetic alopecia which is otherwise called as male pattern or female pattern baldness.

Why do we get it?

Apart from the genetic factors, theer are other factors like lifestyle changes, the stress related factors, the diet, exercise, sleeping factors etc all these affect your hair loss.

Coming on to the treatment, there are lot of non-surgical treatments as well as surgical treatments available for treating the hairloss.

The non-surgical treatments include;

Sometimes people come and ask me, whether "I am a candidate for hair transplant as I am too young" or "too old". So, the answer is yes. Anyone above the age of 18 or 19 till the age of 80-85, depending on the medical conditions, can go ahead for transplantation.

Whenever you visit a consultant plastic surgeon or a dermatologist, ideally first a scalp should be analyzed, certain investigations should be done for you to look into the cause of hairloss. If all is done and you are found to be a candidate for hair transplantation, then another question comes that which technique is suitable?

Your doctor should explain you both the techniques with the benefits and drawbacks of both the techniques. And we choose the technique according to the patient or according to the hair loss he or she is facing.

There are two techniques;

  • FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction (Punch technique)
  • FUT - Follicular Unit Transplant (Strip technique)

FUT is usually done for covering larger areas. The donor areas preserved for future settings. The transaction rate is very less because we separate each and every hair follicle under the microscope, taking care of that we don't damage the hair root.

While we talk about FUE, FUE is usually doen for smaller areas. It has other benefits like, it is a stitchless surgery. The post of period is much more comfortable as compared to the FUT technique. Although in FUT is an old techniquen and FUE is a latest technique. It doesn't mean that FUT is out dated. We select the technique acoording to the patient's condition. At times we do both the techniques together if the requirement id more.

How the procedure is done?

Procedure is done under the local anaesthesia. It takes around 7-8 hours to complete the procedure. The harvesting of the follicles is different in both the techniques. In FUT, we take a strip. In FUE, we punch out each and every hair follicle separately whereas the implantation remains the same in both the techniques.

How would be the post of period be like?

You can join your work the next day. We won't recommend any kind of bed rest post procedure. Swelling can be there for 2-3 days, you just need to wear a head band such as a tennis stars wear. BUt the head band is taken off after 2-3 days and the normal shampooing of hair is started. You can take the bath the next day. So, regarding the post of period, it is pretty much comfortable.

Which doctor should I choose? or which centre should I choose?

This is the another question that comes to patient's mind because these days its a big market and everyone is claiming that they are the best. So, in this case,

  • First check the qualification fo the doctor. The doctor should be a plastic surgeon or a qualified dermatologist with an experince in Hair Transplantation.
  • Secondly, look at the centre whether that centre has all the facilities required to deal with the emergency which might come up during the procedure.
  • Thirdly, you should look at the pre-op investigation which doctor has done or not because the Pre-op investigation will cater to what will happen post surgery or during the surgery. If you have been investigated well, nothing wrong is going to happen.
  • It is very safe and completely painless procedure. Even after the surgery, we will give you pain killers and anti-biotics and you will not face any kind of pain post procedure.

If you have any query regarding hair transplant, you can contact me via Lybrate or you can visit my clinic.

Hi I'm Dr Anuj Saigal MD dermatologist. Today, we are gonna discuss a very common problem these days that is acne scars. Acne scars is present in both males and females. It starts from the teenage and continue and goes for a lifetime .so how to deal with it? When we look at its treatment, the key to its treatment is that you should focus on a particular type of scar because there are different treatment modalities for a specific scar .now when we ache the scar become more noticeable because there's less of collagen & that causes the scars to increase. There are patients that come to me and ask me why do I get scars and a friend of mine who had similar acne didn't get any scars. The reason for this is that what kind of acne you are having .if you have more of inflammatory acne you will have more of scarring .and if you have delaying And treating that acne again you can have more of scarring plus there are genetic factors also involving in this and one very common thing is that people prick on their scars or squeeze them .this is something you should never do because if you squeeze your scars more the acne scaring. Now coming onto what causes scars?why scars happen? Scars happen because when you have acne and acne enters your skin is causes a wound that gets healed up with time and when once it is healed up the collagen stimulation .so once there is less of collagen stimulation you get depressed scars if you have more collagen secretion you get Raised scars .there are two kinds of scars .depressed and raised .in depressed scars there are multiple other scars as well like eyes pig ,box scars ,rolling ,linear where as in raised scars you have hypertrophic and colloidal scars. Treatment modalities for acne scarring are also classified in the same way for depressed scars we have various treatment starting from acne scars surgery, succession, laser, we have resurfacing which can be done through lasers chemicals peel, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion ,we have subcision we breakdown the scars which are pulling down the scars ,we have fillers when we talk about the raised scars we have treatment like lasers ,we have injections of steroids ,cytotoxic chemicals and thiflorouracil and plus acne scar surgery as well. Now the take home message from my side is that if you want to prevent scarring what are the tips?? What are Dos you should not do and what are you should do? So if you are getting scars ,if you are getting acne you should get that acne treated as early as possible because getting early inflammatory acne treated will help you not getting scars secondly you should never prick on your scars thirdly once you have got your treatment done for acne you should continue that treatment once you have not even having acne ,you should paper that treatment sequence because if you immediately stop the treatment then there are more chances of getting scars. There are other factors also genetic factors scarring you cannot do much about that but still you can come down you can visit your dermatologist ,he or she will guide you regarding the treatment available for acne scarring and it is a problem which can be solved out If you have any other queries regarding the acne scarring or any other dermatological problem you can contact me via Lybrate or you can come down to me clinical I will help you

Here are a few ways to treat your acne problem:

Yet, while it might sound unusual, honey and cinnamon make an incredible combo with regards to skin inflammation or acne. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties, so it can prevent microscopic organisms from getting out of control.

Skin Regimen After 30 - Things You Need To Know!

After 30 your skin looses its lustre and appears dull. Thus, the overall glamour and grace of your skin is lost. This is the reason you got to take special care of your skin that can prevent skin deterioration and can prevent different kinds of acute troubles, especially ageing spots, fine lines, patches, wrinkles, dark circles and many others.

How ageing affects your skin?

  1. Losing of collagen: If your skin remains exposed to direct rays of sun for longer hours, then the collagen will get lost as a result of which skin texture, formation and quality get disturbed. In some cases, you might even face dreadful skin damages that are simply quite hectic to bear.
  2. Losing skin thickness: After 30, your skin will look thinner as thickness will be lost and this is one of the most prominent symptoms. Thinner skin invites ageing signs faster and thus your skin will become sagging slowly by losing the natural tightness.
  3. Increase in visibility of ageing signs: The ageing signs will become more prominent and visible immediately after 30s, and this is the reason you should think of the most powerful means that can prevent these signs on a permanent note.

What are the leading skin-care methods for people above 30?

  1. Applying UVB or UVA broad-spectrum sunscreen: since it is not possible to avoid sun exposure all the time, especially for office-going fellows, therefore, it is better to use broad-spectrum sunscreen with rather UVB or UVA feature. Zinc or titanium oxides are mostly found in this kind of sunscreen lotion that not only prevent sun-rays absorption within skin but also make your skin tone much fairer than ever.
  2. Regular usage of filler: fillers can be regularly used so that skin volume can be easily maintained in the long run. This procedure will also take good care of your skin and prevent the skin from getting thin day by day. In this respect, it is recommended to take proper consultation from any dermatologist so that greater safety can be maintained without any mess or adverse reactions.
  3. Using retinol: Retinol has got medical approval, and this plays the most important role in building and maintaining skin collagen in the best way. In this case, collagen levels will get improved slowly, and on the other hand, sun-damages can also be reduced. Because if this ageing signs will also be controlled.

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

Hives - Here Are The 7 Most Common Reasons!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Hives - Here Are The 7 Most Common Reasons!

Hives or urticaria is an outbreak of reddish swollen bumps around the skin surface, formed mainly due to the body’s response to particular allergens. Generally, the infectious bumps are of varied shapes and sizes and last for about 5-6 weeks. Although not a serious medical condition, hives can cause tremendous discomfort to the concerned person and affect his/her daily activities. Hives can be cured with a prescribed dosage of antihistamines or oral corticosteroids.

Causes of hives

Although the exact reason behind their formation is still unknown, researchers suggest that this disorder occurs as a response to involuntary histamine release by the skin blood vessels (that in turn, causes a leakage of blood plasma). Some other factors that can be responsible are:

  1. Hives can occur due to insect or parasite bites.
  2. Hives can also result as a side effect of painkillers such as codeine and other anti- inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or ACE inhibitors.
  3. Excessive exposure to sunlight or high levels of stress (leading to high cortisol levels in the body) can also result in hives.
  4. Intense scratching around the same spot can also result to hive formation.
  5. Excessive alcohol intake can render you even more vulnerable to this disease.
  6. Excessive intake of foods such as eggs, fish, nuts, chocolate and berries might also cause hives. Additionally, excessive consumption of certain food preservatives can also trigger the release of histamine.
  7. Suffering from serious underlying medical conditions such as cancer, hepatitis or thyroid disorders can make you prone to chronic cases of hives (which might last for more than 6 weeks).

Symptoms of hives 
The symptoms of hives include, but are not limited to:

  1. Appearances of several reddish welts around the face or arms which might cause a severe itchy sensation.
  2. Painful and abnormal swelling around the mouth
  3. You might also feel tightness in your chest along with recurring bouts of dizziness.

If not treated promptly after diagnosis, hives might result in life-threatening allergic reactions, such as Anaphylaxis (narrowing down of the bronchial tubes, thus causing significant breathing trouble) and auto-immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Botox - Know Its Benefits!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Botox - Know Its Benefits!

Botox, derived from Clostridium Botulinum, is a cosmetic treatment often used to smooth wrinkled skin. Botox was originally used to treat spasms as it has muscles freezing qualities. Eventually it was discovered that Botox could cure the wrinkles present in the corner of the eyes,which are famously known as the crow's feet and as well as the superficial wrinkles just because it possessed the muscle freezing property.

In today's world, everyone is conscious about getting wrinkles or any other ageing signs. Eventually you will have to deal with them. But until it is absolutely obligatory for you to embrace those signs, Botox is an extremely efficient cosmetic treatment to control them. Here are the different ways in which Botox is beneficial to you:

  1. Botox is nonsurgical: Botox can help you to get flawless skin without any surgery. Botox is administered into your skin in the form of injections. Hence, the hassle of going through a surgery is totally unnecessary.
  2. Botox lifts your eyebrow: Your eyebrow may drop due to various factors like age or lifestyle. Botox helps lift your drooping eyebrows; giving you a fresher and youthful look.
  3. Botox reduces excessive sweating: Excessive sweating can be extremely embarrassing at times, especially if it is under the arms. To be saved from this embarrassment, you can take a Botox shot and it will reduce the amount of sweat produced in your body, hence preventing excessive sweating.
  4. Botox can help with migraines: If you are suffering from migraine headaches, you might consider taking a Botox shot, as it may help reduce your headache and decrease their recurrence. It is extremely beneficial for those who suffer from chronic headaches during one such migraine attack.
  5. Botox helps with eye spasm: Botox helps cure strabismus, diplopia and blepharospasm. Botox relaxes the eye muscles so that they do not work against each other and let the defected muscles heal.
  6. Botox cures overactive bladders: Suffering from an overactive bladder can cause a lot of inconvenience.

Glutathione Skin Whitening: Does It Really Work?

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Glutathione Skin Whitening: Does It Really Work?

Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants in our body. This is gaining traction in terms of skin whitening treatment and achieve the desired pigmentation. With very less to no side-effect, Glutathione skin whitening is by far the most chosen whitening treatment. It is tropically administered through whitening pill or Glutathione cream.

The skin whitening efficacy:

There has been a widespread debate about the effectiveness of skin whitening treatment through glutathione. As per a study conducted by the NCBI, it was found that a period of 4 weeks of Glutathione treatment among a small number of participants exhibited positive results. There are a couple of ways in which Glutathione pills helps to whiten the skin. Glutathione ties up with Tyrosinase and blocks the pathway of the enzyme to produce melanin. The latter is the pigment that is responsible for skin color in the body. The second way in which Glutathione helps in skin whitening is by halting the activation of Tyrosinase. It does so by cutting down the free radicals in the body. It is the free radicals that produce tyrosinase in the first place. The latter in turn is responsible for an increased melanin count in the body.

Skin health and Glutathione:

There are many Glutathione pills out there. It is important to choose the right one for effective results. A Glutathione supplement containing compounds such as Liposomal Glutathione, acetyl glutathione, and L- glutathione etc. can not only enhance the complexion of the skin but improves skin health and quality.

Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant present in every cell of the human body. It helps in removing toxic, heavy metal, free radicals in the body. If not for this compound, the body cell cannot detoxify properly and there is a high likelihood of cell damage. Apart from this Glutathione supplement can effectively minimize the age spots and remove the signs of aging. It is equally beneficial in removing wrinkles, dark spots and other spot marks present in the body.

What to expect from this form of skin treatment?

Although this form of skin white treatment works without a shadow of a doubt. It is wise not to expect dramatic results overnight. The supplement or the cream takes a while to show the result. Since it binds with the internal hormone, the changes might take a while to show the results. After a couple of months, one can expect healthier and fairer skin. The body will also be free from harmful and chemical toxins. It is advised that a skin specialist or a medical professional is consulted before starting the pills or cream. If a person is undergoing skin medication, it might have to be stopped for a while.

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

Thread Lift- A Convenient and Efficient Procedure to Maintain Youthful Look

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Thread Lift- A Convenient and Efficient Procedure to Maintain Youthful Look

A popular cosmetic procedure, thread lift, is like routine work in aesthetic medicine. There are three different methods for thread lifting known as beauty threads, non-surgical thread lifting, and surgical thread lifting. While all procedures are used principally for the face, they can also be used on the cleavage, neck area, and other body areas as well. All three methods help to incite collagen production, re-establishing firmness.

Should You Take the Plunge and Opt for a Thread Lift?

With age, skin tissues tend to thin down because of the breaking down and diminished production of elastin and collagen- the two essential components that keep the skin toned and firm. Along with the loss of muscle mass, bone density and fat cells, aging causes folds, sagging, wrinkles and creases in the skin. A thread lift can modify the effects of aging on the physical appearance by drawing up loose skin without going into operational complexities.

Things to Understand before Booking a Thread Lift Session

A thread lift stimulates the collagen production, tightens the surrounding tissues, and increases blood supply, thus increasing the firmness of skin. The results of thread lift can persist up to quite a few years, depending on the lifestyle and physiological condition of the patient.

Thread-lifting has become a tremendously popular process that incorporates various methods and combinations. However, a single kind of thread does not befit all, so deciding the appropriate type that will suit your skin type and requirements is very essential. Also, another factor that stands on equal importance is the doctor you are considering to collaborate. Always go for well-established renowned doctors in these delicate cases. The latest thread lift is hardly an invasive procedure, and with minimal downtime risk, it is obtaining a fast popularity.

How Do Thread Lifts Work?

The advanced and the most recent cosmetic procedure in this type of lift is dermal thread lift. A thread lift is swift and does not require surgery as such. Previously in surgical methods, a barbed thread was used that would be surgically attached to the skin. The minute barbs held on to the sagging skin. It required hospitalization and postoperative care. But these days there are non-surgical procedures available.

Possible Risk Factors

When operated by an experienced or licensed cosmetic or dermatological surgeon, thread lift techniques are extremely reliable. Nevertheless, lesser side effects may occur including muscle weakness, mental bruising and blistering in areas affected, which typically settle on their own by a week. Sometimes there can be a possibility of risks and complications like mild scarring, migraine, dimpling of the skin, hair loss or in a few sporadic cases, insensibility in the treated area due to nerve lesions. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

5 Best Ways To Prevent Open Pores On Skin!

5 Best Ways To Prevent Open Pores On Skin!

The term 'open pores' refers to the pores on the skin that are larger and more prominent than rest. Sometimes even particular types of acne fall under this dermatological condition. Mainly visible on the T-zone and the surrounding area of the cheeks, open pores are dilated openings of the oil glands and more likely to affect people with oily skin types. As a result of the unchecked secretions of oil through the early years, open pores become worse with age. Below are some of the most efficient yet easy home remedies that can help one to prevent open pores and achieve a flawless skin.

Apple Cider Vinegar
A natural skin-toner and astringent, apple cider vinegar can be an excellent home remedy for restoring the pH balance of the skin, reducing large pores and tightening the skin. The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties of apple cider vinegar also help to treat unwanted acne breakouts, which can sometimes result from open pores.

Sugar Scrub
When it comes to reducing open pores to get a smooth blemish free skin, sugar scrub is one of the most popular home remedies. You can exfoliate the skin and remove excess oil as well as other impurities and dead cells by using a sugar scrub mixed with honey or lemon juice. This scrub can do wonders in preventing open pores.

Ice
One of the simplest yet most efficient home remedies for treating open pores is applying ice on the skin. Ice helps in shrinking large pores and makes the skin firm. Widely used before applying makeup on the skin, ice is also known to promote blood circulation and thus adds a healthy glow. Adding cucumber juice, rose water or apple juice to the water while making ice cubes can prove to be a more beneficial home remedy for open pores.

Egg White
Another effective remedy that is known to shrink enlarged pores is an even paste of oatmeal, egg white, and lemon juice applied twice a week. Not only that, egg white simply by itself, tones and tightens the skin and reduces open pores. Face masks made with egg whites can also be used for treating virulent acnes.

Baking Soda
A rather gentle exfoliating agent for the skin, baking soda comes with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which play a crucial role in protecting the tender skin against the invasion of acne and pimples. Besides helping to remove grime, dead cells and other impurities from the skin, it maintains the pH balance of the skin by maintaining the acid content.

Open pores on facial skin are a serious beauty concern for many. However, it is important to understand that pores are natural components of the skin. Minimizing the appearance of the imperfections, such as large open pores, is certainly possible with the help of the remedies as mentioned earlier; but, making them go away permanently may not be possible. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Hair Transplant

Hi, I am Dr Anuj Saigal, consultant Dermatologist and a Hair Transplant expert.

Whenever someone thinks of getting Hair transplant done, there are multiple questions that comes to the mind starting from where should I get it done? which technique should I choose? What will be the side effects? What will be the post of period like?

The most commonly encountered type of hair loss thata a practising hair transplant surgeon sees these days is Androgenetic alopecia which is otherwise called as male pattern or female pattern baldness.

Why do we get it?

Apart from the genetic factors, theer are other factors like lifestyle changes, the stress related factors, the diet, exercise, sleeping factors etc all these affect your hair loss.

Coming on to the treatment, there are lot of non-surgical treatments as well as surgical treatments available for treating the hairloss.

The non-surgical treatments include;

Sometimes people come and ask me, whether "I am a candidate for hair transplant as I am too young" or "too old". So, the answer is yes. Anyone above the age of 18 or 19 till the age of 80-85, depending on the medical conditions, can go ahead for transplantation.

Whenever you visit a consultant plastic surgeon or a dermatologist, ideally first a scalp should be analyzed, certain investigations should be done for you to look into the cause of hairloss. If all is done and you are found to be a candidate for hair transplantation, then another question comes that which technique is suitable?

Your doctor should explain you both the techniques with the benefits and drawbacks of both the techniques. And we choose the technique according to the patient or according to the hair loss he or she is facing.

There are two techniques;

  • FUE - Follicular Unit Extraction (Punch technique)
  • FUT - Follicular Unit Transplant (Strip technique)

FUT is usually done for covering larger areas. The donor areas preserved for future settings. The transaction rate is very less because we separate each and every hair follicle under the microscope, taking care of that we don't damage the hair root.

While we talk about FUE, FUE is usually doen for smaller areas. It has other benefits like, it is a stitchless surgery. The post of period is much more comfortable as compared to the FUT technique. Although in FUT is an old techniquen and FUE is a latest technique. It doesn't mean that FUT is out dated. We select the technique acoording to the patient's condition. At times we do both the techniques together if the requirement id more.

How the procedure is done?

Procedure is done under the local anaesthesia. It takes around 7-8 hours to complete the procedure. The harvesting of the follicles is different in both the techniques. In FUT, we take a strip. In FUE, we punch out each and every hair follicle separately whereas the implantation remains the same in both the techniques.

How would be the post of period be like?

You can join your work the next day. We won't recommend any kind of bed rest post procedure. Swelling can be there for 2-3 days, you just need to wear a head band such as a tennis stars wear. BUt the head band is taken off after 2-3 days and the normal shampooing of hair is started. You can take the bath the next day. So, regarding the post of period, it is pretty much comfortable.

Which doctor should I choose? or which centre should I choose?

This is the another question that comes to patient's mind because these days its a big market and everyone is claiming that they are the best. So, in this case,

  • First check the qualification fo the doctor. The doctor should be a plastic surgeon or a qualified dermatologist with an experince in Hair Transplantation.
  • Secondly, look at the centre whether that centre has all the facilities required to deal with the emergency which might come up during the procedure.
  • Thirdly, you should look at the pre-op investigation which doctor has done or not because the Pre-op investigation will cater to what will happen post surgery or during the surgery. If you have been investigated well, nothing wrong is going to happen.
  • It is very safe and completely painless procedure. Even after the surgery, we will give you pain killers and anti-biotics and you will not face any kind of pain post procedure.

If you have any query regarding hair transplant, you can contact me via Lybrate or you can visit my clinic.
