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;

  • Mesotherapy
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
  • Laser
  • Also we have Hair Restoration procedures or Hair Transplantation procedure.

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.

Botox - Know Its Benefits!

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. If you are suffering from a case of bladder incontinence, then you can think about getting a Botox shot. Botox increases the volume of the bladder thereby, reducing the incontinence. Once you get a shot, the overactive bladder will be cured gradually.

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!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS

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.

Laser Hair Removal- Experience the Bliss of Feather Soft Skin!

Laser Hair Removal- Experience the Bliss of Feather Soft Skin!

A smooth hair free skin is bliss, isn’t it? But for this soft feeling, one has to go through the fuss of shaving or the pains of waxing often. What if you had a permanent solution to this problem? With laser hair removal that is possible. Now wearing a sleeveless or tank tops is no more a dream.

Laser hair removal- This method of removing hair as its name suggest is done with the help of a laser treatment. The medical procedure uses an intense laser beam that removes unwanted hair.

The method of removing hair through Laser- A laser beam is made to pass within the skin to a single hair follicle during the process of laser hair removal. The extreme heat of the laser burns the hair follicle, which restrains hair growth in future. Laser treatment is extremely beneficial to people with lighter skin tone and dark hair.

Type of hair that is removed through laser-
Practically, laser hair removal can be done on any hair type or skin color. According to experts, when considering this method, the color of the hair is the most significant factor. The laser light which is emitted works on the pigment called melanin of the hair follicles thus working best on people with dark hair. People with gray hair, red or blonde color cannot probably experience the outcome like the previous category.

Laser Hair removal is not a permanent solution- Having a Laser treatment done does not ensure permanent hair removal. It is possible that some hair could be immune to the laser treatment. In few cases, lighter and finer hair is seen to re-grow post treatment.

One might need follow up maintenance sessions once in three months or once in six months, depending upon the growth to keep the hair from growing back again.

The experience of hair removal through laser- According to a majority of women opting for the laser hair removal treatment has explained the feeling to be that of getting hit by a rubber strap. It is more like a snapping sensation. The hair that got treated starts falling off during the span of the first one to three weeks. With every session of this treatment, there will be noticeably less hair growth overall.

One thing that should be kept in mind is to complete the entire course. This will assure you the highest form of reduction of the permanent hair. Forget to fret about the continuous maintenance. Relax and start enjoying the privilege of smooth, silky skin, year-round. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Hair Transplant - Know Its Procedures!

Hair Transplant - Know Its Procedures!

Many men and women suffer from baldness these days and in order to conceal it, look for options available in the market. Though there are many temporary solutions, the most permanent solution is hair transplantation. 

What is Hair Transplantation?
Hair transplantation is broadly achieved by removing grafts/follicles from the back of the head which are more resistant to hormonal changes and placing them in areas of scanty growth or baldness. There are two methods to remove the grafts – Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

In FUT method, a strip of scalp is cut out from the back of the head and is dissected into individual grafts.

FUE method of hair transplantation involves taking the individual follicular units/grafts from the back of the head one by one by cutting around it through a tiny specialised machine and removing them. The process is tedious and takes a few hours but is painless after a few numbing injections are given.

The rest of the procedure remains the same in both techniques. Tiny sites are created using very fine blades and needles in the balding areas after numbing them again with local anaesthetic injections. These grafts are then inserted in the sites on the front of the head or wherever there is hair loss

Advantages of FUT method

  1. Larger areas of baldness can be covered in fewer sittings.
  2. The recovery time is much quicker with the patient often returning to work the next day itself.
  3. The resection rate (the grafts that get cut whilst removing) may be lesser providing superior results. However, the resection rate depends on the skill of the surgeon and his/her staff.

Advantages of FUE method

  1. As this method of hair transplantation does not involve taking an entire strip of scalp from the back of the head like in strip surgery, there are no cuts or stitches.
  2. There is no linear scar.

Both methods involve surgery hence a proper consultation with the surgeon is required who can explain the procedure and its advantages and disadvantages. It takes several hours to perform the surgery and implant hence it is important to block the day out completely and be mentally prepared for it. Most surgeons will want to shave the entire head before embarking on the procedure so make sure that you factor that in.

Post surgery care
It is important to follow post surgery instructions and take good care of the grafts. Swelling of the scalp, face is common for a few days. You will be on antibiotics, steroids, painkillers for a few days and will be asked to use Minoxidil and or Finasteride.

The grafts are wetted with saline repeatedly for a few days after the transplant. Hair is washed with a diluted shampoo the next day in a specific manner without disturbing the grafts. They will eventually fall out after two weeks and the new growth will be seen anywhere between three to six months. In FUT method, post-op wound care of the scar is important and the sutures are removed after a week. 

Who should opt for FUT method?

  1. People who have larger areas of baldness. 
  2. People who would like to get the procedure done in a single sitting.

Who should go in for FUE method?

  1. Suitable for people who have smaller areas of baldness.
  2. People who want to wear shorter hair styles.
  3. People with active lifestyles like sportsmen, etc.
  4. Women with smaller areas of baldness.
  5. People who prefer less invasive procedures and don’t want cuts, stitches on the scalp.
  6. Those who want faster recovery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Mesotherapy - The New Beauty Cure!

Is your receding hairline, sagging double chin, puffy dark circles or ugly cellulite giving you hard time? Try Mesotherapy, the latest technique that can keep you young and beautiful for longer!The non-surgical cosmetic resolution that is introduced into the layer of fat and tissue underneath the skin is called mesoderm. Administered through several injections that contain various types of FDA approved medicines, plant extracts, vitamins and minerals, the content of injection mixture depends on the specific area that is to be treated. The therapy nourishes and promotes the production of collagen, elastin, and boosts your metabolism. So, what beauty treatments can be given using this latest therapy? Let’s take a look.

Reduction of Cellulite
Cellulite is a common problem amongst women that is caused due to poor circulation, weakening of tissues and hormonal imbalance. Mesotherapy aims to resolve the problem of cellulite by strengthening the connective tissues and dissolving excess fat.

Body Contouring
Shape up the parts of your body like abdomen, legs, flabby arms and any other part of the body that can be contoured with this treatment. Fat dissolving medicines are injected in the particular area to enable greater circulation and break down of energy. It also tightens the skin and prevents sagging, making you look younger.

Hair Loss
Mesotherapy is an effective hair loss treatment that not just improves hair loss, but also promotes thicker hair growth. Using a specialized formulation, your scalp is given a natural boost of vitamins that boost blood circulation and also incite the hair follicles with greater nourishment.

Rejuvenation of Face
Gift yourselves a facelift with Mesotherapy. With aging, you facial skin is devoid of its supply of oxygen and essential nutrients. As a result, more toxins get accumulated and drive premature aging causing the skin to let loose with a dull appearance. With the corrective treatment of mesotherapy, the skin is replenished with its nutrients. It cures wrinkles, aging lines, frown lines, sagging skin on the neck and chin.Also pigmentation and discolouration problems of dark circles, sun damage are effectively treated with mesotherapy.

Good to know:

Duration-
The duration of the treatment varies with the type of concern and the area of a treatment. Cellulite reduction for smaller areas takes roughly 8-10 sittings that can be around 20-30 minutes long. A facial rejuvenation can take around 4-5 sittings.

Side-effects
It is a relatively painless procedure and the patient can walk out, a few moments after the treatment is done, and most importantly, it does not cause any scarring. However, side-effects like reddening, swelling and light bruising on the skin can be seen in some cases. But these can also be the after-effectsthat tend to subside after few days.Needless to say, Mesotherapy is rising as the most simple and non-surgical cosmetic procedure with effective results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.
