How to protect your skin from Sun Tan?

Hello everyone. I am Dr. Anupriya Goel from Berkowitz Hair And Skin Clinic. Today I am going to give you tips on how to take care of your skin during summers.

Now, the most common problem that people come to me with during summers is sun tan and pigmentation and my prevention for the same would be prevention than cure. Now, you must prevent your skin from the harmful radiation of from the sun which not only leads to sun tan and pigmentation but also leads to photo damage of your skin which leads to early signs of aging. So the main component which must be applied to prevent your skin from this skin damage is the application of a broad spectrum sunscreen. So, a sunscreen must be minimum SPF 30, UVA++, must be applied 15-20 minutes before going out in the sun, must be re-applied every 3 hours if you are in the sun continuously and should be applied in adequate quantities.

Now, a lot of people even though they apply sunscreen, as they do not apply in adequate quantity, is not very effective. So a minimum of 3 fingertips units must be applied on the face and the neck. Now, along with application of the sunscreen, application of a vitamin C serum is also very important. This is because, due to the exposure to UV radiations and due to environmental pollutants there is generation of free radicals or reactive oxygen species which not only damages your skin cells but it is also damages your melanin producing cells or melanocides. So, this can be prevented by intake of anti-oxidants in the form of citrus fruits, oral supplements and Vitamin C serum. Hence, I would advise that application of a Vitamin C serum and a sunscreen is a must every single day of your life especially in summers.

Now, at night time, the most important step before going to bed is cleansing your face. Many people undermine the importance of cleaning their face before going to bed. This step not only removes the excessive sebum and excessive production of sweat that is mainly produced during summers but it also removes the environmental pollutants. After cleansing your face, you must apply a topical agent containing alphahydroxy acid, containing glycolic acid, lactic acid or melanic acid at least twice a week. This step not only improves the top layer of your skin by decreasing the amount of sebum and removing the dead skin cells but it also acts on a deeper level of your skin producing increased collagen, and meuko polysaccharides which increases the thickness and quality of your skin.

On the other days of the week, you must also apply a moisturizing cream or a hydrating gel. The important properties of a good moisturizing cream are that it contains humectants which attracts water to the skin, maintains or traps water to your skin and emollients which smoothen up your skin. A good property of a moisturizing gel should be that it should leave your skin smooth and supple and not very sticky. Now, other than applying these moisturizing creams and hydrating gels, it is very important to take care of the hydration of your body by taking minimum 2-3 liters of water every single day. So, just to summarize it, during summers, during daytime, you must apply Vitamin C serum and a sunscreen and at night, you must apply a good moisturizing gel along with glycolic acid containing topical agents along with a healthy diet and cleansing your face.

If you do all these steps for a minimum of 3-6 months, you will definitely see a younger and brighter looking skin. Wish you all a very healthy and beautiful summer. Thank you.

Detail on Anti Aging Treatment<br/><br/>Hello, everyone, I m Dr. Anupriya Goel from Berkowitz hai...

Detail on Anti Aging Treatment

Hello, everyone, I’m Dr. Anupriya Goel from Berkowitz hair and skin clinic and today I’m going to talk about various anti-aging treatments including botulinum toxin, fillers and thread lift.

To start with Botulinum toxin, it is a protein complex which is derived from clostridium botulinum bacterium and it is used to treat certain muscular conditions and aesthetically remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle. The various indications that it can be used to treat are our horizontal frontal lines for crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines and dimpled chin. Now how this procedure is done is by applying a local anesthetic cream on the concerned areas and injecting the toxin directly into the neuro muscular tissue .the result of this starts coming within 24 to 72 hours and the peak result is seen within 7 to 14 days. Now the main advantage of this procedure is that by using the toxin we not only remove the wrinkles but we also prevent the formation of permanent lines on the face. Now when this procedure is done in conjunction with other procedures like fillers and thread lifts it even gives better results.

What exactly are Fillers, these are high percentage hyaluronic acid materials which are used for volume restoration and phase rejuvenation. As we age there is hypertrophy of the fat, the muscle and the bone due to which there is a loss of volume of the face, by using fillers we can correct that. Now the ways indications for which fillers can be used are a loss of volume under the eyes or Tiaras for lip augmentation for nasolabial folds and for marionette lines. They can also be used for augmenting your cheek and chiseling your jaw line.

Now when this procedure is done along with another procedure called Thread lift which is a relatively new procedure it gives even better results. It is a very well known fact that the ideal female facial shape is an ovoid shape or an inverted egg shape with fullness in the upper half of the face and narrowness in the lower half of the face that is chiseling of the jaw line towards the chin. This can be accentuated by using the procedure called thread lift now there are a number of threads which are available which includes mono threads, lock threads, mono screw threads, and double school trips they act by collagen regeneration and remodeling. They are made up of a material known as poly dioxin on which one goes inside the skin it rejuvenates the skin and lifts the skin by collagen regeneration and remodeling. Now how this procedure is done is that we apply a local anesthetic cream locally and we insert the needles which have these threads on it. We put these needles inside and take the mount and the thread remains inside. In that area there is tightening and sagging is lifted by collagen regeneration so whether we do these procedures alone or we do in conjunction with each other they bring excellent results and they are associated with minimal side effects.

If you have any queries regarding any treatments you can contact us. Thank you.

Here are procedures, results and precautions of Chemical Peel and Microneedling.<br/><br/>Hello e...

Here are procedures, results and precautions of Chemical Peel and Microneedling.

Hello everyone. I am doctor Anupriya Goel from Berkowits Hair and Skin Clinic. And today I am going to talk two topics Chemical Peels and Microneedling.

To start with Micro needling.

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy and it's a very simple procedure mainly for Acne scars. In this therapy we take handheld rolling instrument which have number of pins on it. Dispense can range from 192 to 540 needles and they have varied length as well which varies from 0.5 to 2 mm. Choose the length of the needle according to type and the area of the face that we have to treat. If we have to treat the forehead we take the needle of 0.5 mm and if we have to treat your check area which has the acne scars we take a needle of about 2 mm. Now How we do the procedure is that we taken area of about 2 by 2 inches of your skin, we stretch it and we roll the instrument on your skin and we must get a clinical endpoint of pinpoint bleeding. As Soon as we get the pin point bleeding that is small wounds on your skin which are the good ones. Because these wants leads to release of number of growth factors like the epidermal growth factor, fibre blast growth factor, platelet derived growth factor which needs to collagen regeneration and remodeling and youthful appearance.

Now this procedures it has to be done in multiple sessions. About 6 to 8 sessions have to be given of this therapy and it has to be given in the gap of about 6 to 8 weeks. This treatment can also be combined with number of treatments like chemical peels lasers and many more and and just needs to even better the results. So I would say that microneedling is very simple procedure. Isn't office going procedure. You can even come in your office rest time and get it done and it gives this excellent results and it can be combined with number of therapies and it leads two very glowing renewed skin and your acne scars can really be gone with this statement.

Starting with Chemical peeling.

Chemical peel is a medical procedure which application of chemical agents in your skin which causes very controlled destruction of of your epidermis and dermis leading to its regeneration and treatment of skin imperfection leading to a youthful appearance. Now Chemical peels are also classified in various types depending upon the death of the skin they have penetrated. A chemical peel is called very superficial if they have penetrated just the starting cornium that is the superficial most layer of the epidermis. And if they have penetrated in the entire epidermis then it is called superficial peel. However if they penetrate in the dermis then they are classified in medium depth or deep peels. There are number of fields available in the market including glycolic, salicylate meadowlake, lactate, trichloroacetic acid, phenol, jessner and there are a number of peels which are available in combinations as well. So there are so many treatment availability and there are so many indications for which we can do this.

So the treatment, the indications for which we can do chemical peels include treatment of acne pigmentation, treatment of acne itself, treatment of acne scars, we can melasma, fractals, lentigines. You can even treat your wrinkles. We Can treat the tanning of your skin. We Can bring a overall regeneration of your skin from this procedure. The only precaution you have to take after a Chemical peeling procedure is that you have apply sunscreen literally before you go out in the sun and also not to perform abrasive procedures for the next one week however you can combine this procedure with microdermabrasion or microneedling or lasers after one week. Hence Chemical peeling is also a very safe procedure. It can be done during office timings and it leads to skin rejuvenation and glow on your skin with a very easy technique without any downtime.

So if you want to get any of these procedures or any more procedures like lasers and you want any Dermatology help, you must call us and we are there to help. Thank you.

How Long Does a Hair Transplant Surgery Take?

Diploma in Dermatology, MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
How Long Does a Hair Transplant Surgery Take?

The duration of the Hair Transplant is dependent on multiple factors. Namely:
1) The number of grafts being implanted
2) The procedure being followed
 
The number of grafts being implanted
Grafts or hair roots that are extracted and implanted in a procedure determine the duration of the surgery. Each graft can have 1-5 hair strands. Many clinics use hair and grafts interchangeably which is an unethical practice as each graft can contain 1-5 hair.
 
The Procedure being followed
Majorly, there are two types of Hair Transplant surgeries. (The other types are variants of these procedures)
FUE: Follicular Unit Extraction, as the name suggests, each hair unit is individually extracted i.e each graft is individually extracted. It is a very labour intensive process and the time of the surgery depends upon the experience of the Hair Transplant Team. we boast of a highly skilled Hair Transplant Team that can implant upto 3500 hair grafts in 8 hours.
FUT: Follicular Unit Transplant or Strip Hair Transplant, uses a strip of the scalp to extract hair grafts. A strip of the scalp is cut and is handed over to an experienced technician to dissect and separate the hair grafts from. It usually takes 4 to 6 hours.
Below is table that takes into account the procedure and the number of grafts to approximate the surgery time.

Number of Grafts Procedure Type Number of Hours
1000 to 1500 FUE 6
1000 to 1500 FUT 4
1500 to 2500 FUE 7
1500 to 2500 FUT 5
2500 to 3500  FUE 8
2500 to 3500  FUT 6
More than 3500  FUE Done over 2 Days
More than 3500 FUT 8

Thread Lifts - The No Surgery Face Lift Alternative!

Thread Lifts - The No Surgery Face Lift Alternative!

Being the first to be noticed, every person (especially woman) tries their best to make sure that the face does not show signs of ageing. As soon as dark circles or pigments appear or the skin begins to sag, people start to look for ways to control this and reverse the ageing look.

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a convenient and safe method that is less invasive and can help in reducing the sagging skin around the jawline and neck. The results are far better than conventional surgical methods and with much lesser risk too.

What is done?

Tiny incisions are made in the marked areas of the skin through which special threads are inserted. They are left in place for a while so that they can attach to the skin. The threads also have small cones or hooks embedded in them, which stimulate collagen production when the thread is left in place. This increases the duration of producing a youthful appearance. They are then lifted off, bringing with them the skin too, giving it a literal lift. This helps in repositioning the skin and surrounding facial tissue, giving a facelift that is almost immediately noticeable.

It does not require anaesthesia and the patient is usually awake during the procedure. The patient can even see the results and ask for further lifts to get the desired results. The threads are then knotted in place and left behind in the skin. The threads may or may not dissolve over a period of time. If not dissolvable, they need to be removed. The threads are usually of clear polypropylene and are used along the contour lines that are naturally present in the face. They can be absorbable or nonabsorbable.

Who is it for?

Anybody with good quality skin, usually in the 30s to 60s age group, where the sagging is just beginning to set in and is not very visible. There is still sufficient collagen deposits in these people to allow for regeneration. They also can be useful in younger people to improve facial contours or correct asymmetry.

Benefits:

Referred to as lunchtime facials, there are multiple benefits to this magical procedure.

  • These help restore a youthful appearance, especially in the brows, cheeks and neck areas.
  • Less commonly, they are also used on the breasts, buttocks and upper arms.
  • They can help in improving muscle tone and improving aged appearance.
  • They are also useful in shaping and lifting sagging areas.
  • The results can last from 1.5 to 4 years, depending on skin care routine and type of treatment done.
  • Talk to your surgeon about what to expect before going ahead with the procedure. A well-trained surgeon can definitely do wonders with these threads. 

    If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Hair transplant is a great option as long as the patient is aware about the post transplant care. The implants that are done require proper care throughout the whole recovery procedure and needs patience and obedience from the patient. It becomes the duty and the responsibility of the patient to maintain a healthy environment for his/her new hair implants to bloom. Hair transplantation cost is also much affordable as compared to the other treatments. Plus, it recovers fast and is almost scar less. Hair loss is a concern in many people and throughout the years, the technology has significantly improved. Hair care tips are the ones that act as a guide for you to maintain those healthy locks and create a long lasting impression after the hair transplant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a  free question.

Chemical Peel and the Pathology Behind It

Chemical peeling is a medical procedure which includes application of a chemical agent to the skin, causing controlled destruction of the epidermis, with or without the dermis, leading to exfoliation and removal of superficial lesions, followed by regeneration of new epidermal and dermal tissues. In simple words chemical peeling or chemical rejuvenation is procedure where a chemical agent or combination of agents of defined strength are applied the skin causing a controlled destruction of layers of the skin. This is followed by regeneration and remodeling leading to improvement of texture and surface abnormalities. It is a safe, effective and affordable option for improving skin ageing and imperfections.

Skin is considered the largest organ of the body and has many different functions. The skin is divided in two main regions, the epidermis and the dermis. The dermis is attached to an underlying hypodermis also called subcutaneous connective tissue.

Epidermis: It is the most superficial layer of the skin. The first barrier of protection from the invasion of foreign substances. The epidermis is divided into four layers – stratum corneum, stratum granulosum, stratum spinosum and stratum basalis(basal layer).

Dermis: It is composed of fibroblasts which are responsible for secreting collagen, elastin and ground substance that gives support and elasticity to skin. It supplies the epidermis with nutrients and has its role in thermoregulation. The dermis is subdivided into two zones, upper papillary and lower reticular layer.

Classification of peels according to histological depth

  1. Very superficial peel – Exfoliation of the stratum cormeum, without any epidermal necrosis.
  2. Superficial peel – Destruction of the full epidermis, up to the basal layer
  3. Medium peel – Destruction of the epidermis, papillary dermis and upto the upper one third of the reticular dermis.
  4. Deep peel – Necrosis of the entire epidermis and papillary dermis with inflammation extending to the mid reticular dermis.

Classification of chemical peeling agents

Very superficial Peel:

  • Glycolic Acid 30-50% applied for 1-2 minutes
  • TCA* 10% applied as one coat
  • Jessner’s solution 1-3 coats

Superficial Peel:

  • Glycolic acid 50-70% applied for 2-10 mins (depending on the type and thickness of the skin)
  • TCA 10-30%
  • Jessner’s solution 4-10 coats
  • Very superficial and superficial Peels are the mildest form and often called, “the lunchtime peel.” These peels break down corneocyte adhesion, causing dead skin cells to shed off to reveal the fresh, healthy underlying skin. These peels address minor skin irregularities like discoloration, acne, surface scarring, fine lines, and sun spots.

Medium Peel:

  • Glycolic acid 70% applied for 3-30 mins (depending on the type and thickness of the skin)
  • TCA 35-50%
  • Glycolic Acid 70% plus TCA 35%
  • Jessner’s solution plus TCA 35%

Deep Peel:

  • Phenol 88%
  • Baker Gordon phenol formula
  • Medium and deep peels increase the collagen and glycosaminoglycans content, cause collagen remodeling and increase dermal thickness to improve the clinical appearance of the skin with reduced wrinkles, skin tightening and pigmentary dyschromia.

Reason behind chemical peeling:

  • Wound healing process is an important reason for rejuvenation. The phases of wound healing after chemical exfoliation are apparent:
  • Inflammatory phase (1-5 days) – This phase is evident after peeling as erythma and swelling on the skin
  • Proliferative phase (2-21 days) – In superficial peels, the basement membrane is intact, hence normal epidermis is restored in 2 to 3 days. In medium to deep peels, wound is below basement membrane and re-epithelialization takes time.
  • Remodeling phase (3 weeks to 2 years) – collagen remodeling is the main reason that chemical peels cause rejuvenation and reduce wrinkles.

Indications for peels:

1. Pigmentary disorders

  • Resistant melasma
  • Pigmented cosmetic dermatitis
  • Freckles
  • Lentigines
  • Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation

2. Acne

  • Comedonal acne
  • Post acne scars
  • Acne cosmetic
  • Acne excoriee

3. Cosmetic

  • Photoageing
  • Fine wrinkling
  • Skin glow and rejuvenation
  • Oily to rough skin
  • Actinic keratosis

4. Miscellaneous

  • Keratosis pilaris
  • Macular amyloidosis
  • Dilated pores
  • Seborrheic keratoses

Contraindications

  • Active bacterial, viral and fungal infection and open wounds
  • Oral isotretinoin use within the past three months
  • Pregnancy and breast feeding
  • History of keloid formation
  • History of taking oral contraceptive and photosensitive drugs
  • Unrealistic patient expectation
  • Uncooperative patient, eg. Patient is careless about sun exposure or application of medicine
  • For medium depth and deep peels, history of abnormal scarring, atrophic skin and isotretinoin use in the last six months.

How to choose a patient:

A patient should be chosen depending upon 4P’s:

P – Pathology

P – Point of depth required

P – Patients skin

P – Previous peeling agents

Newer peels:

Many peels like mandelic acid, kojic acid, lactic acid, citric acid and many more have been introduced in the market which are also available in combination. These peels are not only more skin friendly but also more patient friendly. They have buffering agents like licorice extract and willow bark extract to minimize irritation to skin and antioxidants to infuse the skin with restorative nutrients. The change in the skin often occurs at cellular level and are not apparent to the naked hence making it more popular amongst busy patients who are seeking effective treatments quickly with little or no downtime.

Benefits of chemical peels:

The skin becomes noticeably smoother and rejuvenated.

  • It reduces pigmentation, improves dull and uneven skin tone, reduces signs of photoagaeing, acne and enlarged pores.
  • Removes dead and damaged skin cells and improves skin texture
  • Helps in removal of tan
  • Skin becomes brighter and more vivid because chemical peels not only cause re-epithelialization of the epidermis but also collagen remodeling.

Pre peel and post peel precautions:

  • Patient has to be motivated enough to get multiple sittings of the peel ( 4-8, depending on the indication and type of peel) every 2-3 weekly to get the desired result.
  • Patient should not wax, bleach, scrub, shave(the same day) or get any other aesthetic procedure like microdermabrasion, ipl, derma-roller one day before the chemical peel procedure. A gap of at least 7 days before and after the peel should be maintained.
  • Patient should use a mild soap/ non soap cleanser after the peel
  • Broad spectrum sunscreen and moisturizer should be used liberally, at least 2-3 times a day and sun exposure should be avoided.
  • Patient should be strictly prohibited from scratching, picking or scrubbing the skin.

Take home message:

Chemical peeling is a simple office procedure for the treatment of acne, pigmentation, skin rejuvenation and photo ageing. These are not one time procedures but require 6-8 sessions and maintenance peels to achieve maximum improvement and prevent recurrences. The newer peels are safer and effective. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Detail on Anti Aging Treatment

Hello, everyone, I’m Dr. Anupriya Goel from Berkowitz hair and skin clinic and today I’m going to talk about various anti-aging treatments including botulinum toxin, fillers and thread lift.

To start with Botulinum toxin, it is a protein complex which is derived from clostridium botulinum bacterium and it is used to treat certain muscular conditions and aesthetically remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle. The various indications that it can be used to treat are our horizontal frontal lines for crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines and dimpled chin. Now how this procedure is done is by applying a local anesthetic cream on the concerned areas and injecting the toxin directly into the neuro muscular tissue .the result of this starts coming within 24 to 72 hours and the peak result is seen within 7 to 14 days. Now the main advantage of this procedure is that by using the toxin we not only remove the wrinkles but we also prevent the formation of permanent lines on the face. Now when this procedure is done in conjunction with other procedures like fillers and thread lifts it even gives better results.

What exactly are Fillers, these are high percentage hyaluronic acid materials which are used for volume restoration and phase rejuvenation. As we age there is hypertrophy of the fat, the muscle and the bone due to which there is a loss of volume of the face, by using fillers we can correct that. Now the ways indications for which fillers can be used are a loss of volume under the eyes or Tiaras for lip augmentation for nasolabial folds and for marionette lines. They can also be used for augmenting your cheek and chiseling your jaw line.

Now when this procedure is done along with another procedure called Thread lift which is a relatively new procedure it gives even better results. It is a very well known fact that the ideal female facial shape is an ovoid shape or an inverted egg shape with fullness in the upper half of the face and narrowness in the lower half of the face that is chiseling of the jaw line towards the chin. This can be accentuated by using the procedure called thread lift now there are a number of threads which are available which includes mono threads, lock threads, mono screw threads, and double school trips they act by collagen regeneration and remodeling. They are made up of a material known as poly dioxin on which one goes inside the skin it rejuvenates the skin and lifts the skin by collagen regeneration and remodeling. Now how this procedure is done is that we apply a local anesthetic cream locally and we insert the needles which have these threads on it. We put these needles inside and take the mount and the thread remains inside. In that area there is tightening and sagging is lifted by collagen regeneration so whether we do these procedures alone or we do in conjunction with each other they bring excellent results and they are associated with minimal side effects.

If you have any queries regarding any treatments you can contact us. Thank you.
