Causes and treatment of Acne

Hi, I am Dr Pankaj Chaturvedi, Dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon from MedLinks, New Delhi. I have been covering a very important condition today, which is called acne and this is one of the most common skin conditions globally, around 95% of people they have acne any point of time. So question is what causes acne, well the multiple reasons for acne the most common are the hormonal changes in the body that changed in the oil production by the stem cells and as a result this extra sebum this clogs our pores, combine with the dead cells and the infection by the bacteria which reside in the skin acne occurring selfless. There are multiple types of acne, acne is not a single disease there are more than 14 types of acne, the common words are called as acne vulgaris then we have comedones acne in common language we call as black and white heads and then there are severe cops of acne called as nodular acne. Acne is not a limited to teenagers, acne are also seen in adult women and this is matter of embarrassment and these kind of reasons which are seen in adult common may be a sign of underline hormonal problem. The question is why acne should be treated, the answer is, if acne are not treated they can lead to scarring and scarring is permanent. So the old myth that acne goes with the time that is correct but acne do not go without leaving that memories. They go but they leave their memories of scars and the soul water of treatment of acne is to prevent the scarring. So it is better to prevent acne and treat them on time rather than keep on fit in the scars because of improper treatment. What are the treatment options of acne? So acne treatment depends on the type of acne, the age of the patient and the severity. So mild acne that treated by certain face washes, the certain creams, retinoids, topical Balzoltociled certain face washes to reduce the oil production and de clogged the pores, but in moderate to severe cases we required oral medications and certain specialised therapies. At MedLinks we have a specialised, customised treatment for acne to name the few we have a signature treatment called as acne buster, acne buster treatment begins with the proper cleansing of the face with the some steam to the face to make the comedones get soften, we do thorough comedones extraction and then we do certain anti-acne peels to de clogged the pores to reduce the sebaceous lakes activity and to cause some exfoliation so that the complexion and the spots created by they also get better over the mean of time. For severe acne and specially the adult acne which are seen in women, we have a fantastic treatment called as carbon facial. The carbon facial is a very popular treatment globally and it uses acute switch and the lasers on the face to target adult acne and this treatment first apply carbon lotion on the face then with quacy long pills, we melt this carbon so that it can penetrate the pores and then with this quasi-CW laser we target this pigment which is concentrated in the sebaceous gland, so that we can directly target the gland and reduce its sebaceous activity. So this treatment is known to give very good results in adult women without the need of long term uses of contraceptives. By using these sophisticated treatments, we can treat acne on time and minimising the damage caused by these acne. So what are waiting for if there acne we have solutions and we have solutions for everybody, these are safe US FDA approved and they do not have any long term or short term side effects. Thank you.

Post Acne Scars And Their Treatment!

MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Post Acne Scars And Their Treatment!

The skin is known as the largest organ in the human body. It covers us from top to toe and has three layers: 

  1. Epidermis: The outermost layer
  2. Dermis: Lies just beneath the Epidermis 
  3. Hypodermis: It holds the fat and connective tissue

Our skin requires constant care and protection because it is exposed to the ravages of pollution, dust and harmful UV rays. Let us consider the following reasons for taking care of the skin.

  1. Free Radicals: The particles or molecules that escape from dust, pollution and other such factors in everyday urban living, settle on the skin and clog the pores. It is important to clean the skin every single day and exfoliate at least once a week with a trip to the salon or with a facial scrub at home, so that these can be removed.
  2. Dead Cells: The skin throws up dead cells on a daily basis, which may not be obvious to the naked eye. These need to be cleared daily as they can also clog the pores and give rise to acne, skin infection and other skin conditions, that can take a turn for the worse with ailments like Melanoma and skin cancer.
  3. Elasticity: One must keep the skin clean and use anti aging products in a timely manner along with a good moisturiser and sunscreen, so that the supple quality and glow is kept intact with a regular cleanse of the collagen, which can be prevented from slipping away due to neglect. This collagen keeps the elasticity of the skin which makes the skin look firm and young.
  4. Prevention: One must clean the skin and use skin care products that prevent premature aging and accumulation of free radicals. Prevention is better than cure and this stands true in the case of skin care as well. 
  5. UV Rays: The powerful UV rays can hit your skin persistently and cause long term damage and sun spots. In order to lessen the damaging effect, it is important to use protective skin care products that will help in keeping freckles, age spots, brown spots, skin peeling and excessive sunburn and tanning at bay. 
  6. Skin Problems and Allergies: Bug bites, injuries and other allergies must be taken care of instantly with a visit to the doctor or medicated creams and medication. This will ensure that the delicate texture of the skin does not get marred by possible infection.

Post Acne Scars and their treatment

When you have a pimple, it is very tempting to burst it. While this may provide temporary relief, it can often leave scars behind. In many cases, these scars may be permanent and can mat your beauty. Thankfully, there are ways to treat acne scars. Treatment for acne scars depends largely on the type of scars.

 

Treatment for Indented Scars
Indented scars can be seen in the form of shallow pits on the skin. They are caused by the release of insufficient collagen during the healing phase. Microdermabrasion is the most popular form of treatment for such acne scars. This is a noninvasive technique that exfoliates the outer layer of skin and helps renew skin. In the case of shallow indented scars, this treatment may completely eliminate the scar while in the case of deeper scars; it can make them less visible. Deep indented scars may also be treated with lasers to reduce the size of the scar mad erase persistent marks. If neither of these techniques work, surgery may be advised. This involves removing the scarred area and inserting skin grafts in its place.

Treatment for Raised Scars
An excessive production of collagen during the healing phase can raise the scar. These may also be termed as keloid and hypertrophic scars. Injecting corticosteroids or silicon into the skin can help flatten the scar and level your skin. Cryotherapy may also be used to treat such scars. This therapy involves exposing the skin to extremely low temperatures so as to freeze the skin cells and make them peel off. In some instances, surgery may also be required.

Treatment for Discoloured Scars
Acne can often leave behind discolored patches of skin. In cases of excessive melanin production, the skin may appear darker than normal. On the other hand, if the melanin production is compromised, hypopigmentation may occur which makes the area look lighter than the surrounding skin. Pigmentation scars are easier to treat as compared to raised or indented scars. Topical ointments may be prescribed as the first form of treatment for these scars. Exfoliation can also be very helpful. Addition treatments could include microdermabrasion, laser treatment, and chemical peels.

When it comes to acne scars, prevention is the best remedy. Most scars are created by picking zits and trying to drain them yourself. This should be avoided. If a zit is painful, consult a dermatologist who can drain it for you. It is important to look after your skin with a proper routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Laser Hair Removal - How to go about it?

MD, MBBS

Laser Hair Removal - How to go about it?

Hair removal is one of the constant challenges a woman faces in keeping her skin smooth. Waxing, tweezing and shaving are some of the most common techniques used to remove hair. These are quick and can be done at home but they have temporary results and need to be repeated every few weeks. If this tires you out and you need a more permanent solution, laser therapy may be the perfect solution.

This technique of hair removal uses laser beams to remove unwanted hair. The beam passes through the skin without damaging it and burns the hair follicles. Once the follicles have been damaged, they fall off and do not regrow. While it does not guarantee permanent hair removal, it does slow down the process of regrowth and provides a longer hair-free period. Laser treatment may need to be performed more than once in the case of thick hair growth.

Laser treatment is most effective for light-skinned people with dark hair. It can be used to remove hair from the arms, legs, underarms, bikini line etc. Laser treatment is not recommended for the area around the eyelids. Some of the benefits of laser treatment include:

  1. Lasers are precise and do not harm the surrounding area
  2. Laser treatment is quick, Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute. Larger areas like the back may take up to an hour
  3. Laser treatment is much more effective as compared to other techniques of hair removal. Along with reducing hair growth, it also does not cause undergrowth.

For at least 6 weeks before undergoing laser treatment, you should not use any other forms of hair removal that involves removing the hair from its roots. Before the treatment, your hair will be trimmed and a cooling gel will be applied over the area. You will also be given a protective eye mask. The laser will be customized to the density of your hair, color, location and your skin type. You may feel a zapping sensation when the laser is directed to your skin. After the procedure, an ice pack or an anti-inflammatory lotion may be applied to ease discomfort

Unlike waxing and other means of hair removal, laser treatment cannot be performed by everyone. This must be performed only by a certified dermatologist at a sterile clinic. Your skin may look sunburnt for a day or two after the procedure. This can be relieved with ice packs and moisturizers. Blistering is rare but some people may experience temporary inflammation and redness.

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

Wrinkle Removal and Skin Tightening Treatments!

MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Wrinkle Removal and Skin Tightening Treatments!

The quality of a person’s skin says a lot about their age. As the years go by, your skin loses its elasticity and firmness and wrinkles and fine lines become increasingly prominent. Everyone wants to look younger and boast of the skin they once had but not everyone wants to undergo cosmetic surgery for the same. Thankfully, there are a number of noninvasive techniques that can help tighten skin and reduce wrinkles.

Botox Injections
Botox or botulinum injections are one of the most popular ways to erase fine line, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. This is extracted from botulinum bacteria and can be used on the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks, and neck. The injection is relatively pain-free and takes only a few minutes but its effects are temporary. The results become apparent 3 to 7 days after the injection and to maintain your look, you will need to take the injections every 3 to 6 months.

Chemical Peels
This involves the use of an acid solution that removes the top layer of dead cells from the skin. It can be used to address fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots etc. There are many different types of chemical peels that may be used depending on the extent of treatment required. Chemical peels should be only applied in a certified dermatologist’s clinic.

Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical technique that exfoliates the top layer of skin with tiny crystals. In doing so, it helps treat fine lines, acne and tightens the skin. The effects of microdermabrasion are subtle and you may need up to ten sessions to see a noticeable difference.

INTRAgen

intragenic is a skin treatment method that utilizes the radio frequency device. This method works very well for the purposes of skin toning, tightening and rejuvenation. As it works on radio frequency method, it penetrates the deepest layer of the dermis and remodels the existing collagen. Moreover, it also stimulates neo-collagen and effectively tones and tightens the skin.

HiFu is a non-invasive method of skin treatment that uses the ultrasound to tighten, tone and also lift the sagging skin on the face. it is also called “non surgical facelift” or skin tightening by some experts and people. This method works best for aged people who are worried about their loosening and sagging skin due to age or any other reasons.

Nonablative Laser
This type of laser therapy is ideal for people who want to improve their skin tone and texture. It can also be used to treat brown patches on the skin. Without damaging the outer layer, it stimulates collagen production and makes the skin firmer and tighter. For the results to be visible, 4 to 6 sessions may be needed.

Light Therapy
Like lasers, intense pulsed light therapy can be used to address the dermis. This form of treatment involves directing short pulses of light at the dermis that destroy cells and aid in renewing the skin. Along with treating redness and patches, it also stimulates collagen to increase the skin’s elasticity. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Acne in Adult Women and Their Treatment!

MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Acne in Adult Women and Their Treatment!

Pimples are typically associated with one’s teenage years. However, many women find themselves dealing with acne breakouts right up to menopause. Adult acne is becoming an increasingly common condition that affects women between the ages of 25 and 50. Like the pimples that affect young girls, adult acne can also be triggered by many different factors. This condition can be treated but in order to do so, it is essential to understand the factors triggering it.

Hormonal Fluctuation
As a woman’s menstrual cycle progresses, the levels of estrogen, progestin, and androgens in her body fluctuate. A painful cyst around the chin, neck or back can be the result of this fluctuation. These breakouts tend to resolve themselves as the menstrual cycles wanes. If you suffer from severe adult acne, you may need to ask your dermatologist for medication such as oral contraceptives that can manipulate hormone fluctuation.

Stress
Stress not only affects your mental health but also affects your skin. Stress causes the adrenal gland responsible for the production of cortisol to increase production. One of the side effects of this increased production is an increased amount of testosterone in the body. This causes the oil glands to secrete more oil. The higher the oil content of your skin, the higher your risk of having an acne breakout. Meditation and exercise can help curb stress and keep your skin clearer.

Wrong Cleaning Technique
Washing your face too often can dry the skin and trigger an overproduction of oil thus leading to acne. Similarly, using the wrong products like an oil-based moisturizer for normal skin can clog your pores. Using a very coarse cleanser can also promote adult acne. Hence, limit yourself to washing your face twice a day with a mild face wash. Choose water-based makeup and creams. Look for products that contain salicylic acid and glycolic acid.

In addition, here are a few ways to relieve the symptoms of adult acne.

  1. Topical application of retinol can reduce the intensity of acne. However, this may be harsh on sensitive skin.
  2. For spot treatment, look for products with benzoyl peroxide.
  3. Natural substances like tea tree oil can help control moderate acne breakouts. This can be used as a soap to wash your face or as a topical applicant.
  4. Reducing your consumption of salt, milk and processed food can also help reduce acne.

Last but not the least; do not ever try to pick a pimple. Painful zits may need to be drained but this should not be attempted at home.

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