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.

Causes And Solution for Acne Scar!

Dermatologist, Delhi
Causes And Solution for Acne Scar!

What causes acne?

  1. Hormonal imbalance

Women tend to suffer from fluctuating hormones during:-

*Periods

**Menopause, pre menopause, during pregnancy

*Discontinuing or starting birth control pills

These are one of the primary causes of acne.

  1. Dietary imbalance

Consuming a lot of junk and sugary food is not the only cause of acne. Eating an imbalanced diet, ignoring the nutrient value while having a meal and consuming a lot of refined carbs can also trigger breakouts. 

  1. Stress

Stress is a big cause of acne. What it also does is trigger the already persisting issue and make it worse. So keeping yourself calm and stress free in any situation is important to keep the acne away.

4.  Family history

Some people may have a genetical disposition for acne. People with parents, siblings or any close genetically related family member with acne have a higher chance of having the breakouts themselves.

5. Unknown medical condition

There could be a possibility that the underlying root cause is an undiagnosed disease. Once the disease is diagnosed and treated - the acne may start to disappear. 

6. Side effects of a medication

Acne may get triggered as a form of side effect of a medicine that one is taking. So always take the advice of a doctor before starting any medication.

Solution to Acne Scar

  1. Cleansing your face and removing oil and dirt from your face at least twice a day.
  2. Have a balanced diet that is rich in fibre and eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  3. Increase your water intake as that would flush out the toxins.
  4. Use cosmetics that are non-comedogenic (don't clog pores) or non-acnegenic (don’t cause breakouts).
  5. Have adequate sleep of 8 hours every day to relax and rejuvenate your body and mind and will help you curb stress.
  6. Take treatments that suit your problem.

Have Your Skin Been Missing Out On The Magic of Toning?

Some people are naturally blessed with good skin while most of us strive hard to achieve that glow. Even if someone has a naturally healthy and beautiful skin it is still imperative to take care of it properly. One’s beauty regimen depends on the kind of skin – dry, oily, combination, normal - and it is really important to choose the products that compliment your skin type.

We all know how important it is to keep the skin clean and cleansing happens to be the first step towards skin care. What we tend to ignore is to understand the importance of Toning and actually most of the people miss out on this part thinking that it is redundant. It isn’t.

What is Toning?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toning is an integral part of skin care: It is a cosmetic lotion applied with the help of a cotton pad after cleansing the face. It helps in cleansing the skin deeply and shrinks the appearance or size of the pores.It is helpful in keeping the skin healthy and makes the skin more receptive to the nourishment step i.e. moisturizing.

 Benefits of Toning

There are multiple benefits of toning. Some of them are:-

  1. Toning helps you get rid of impurities (excess oil, makeup residue, pollutants etc.)
  2. It helps in balancing the pH levels of our natural skin
  3. Toning prevents breaking out of the skin
  4. Toning prepares the skin for moisturizer

The benefits of using a Toner are endless.

These are the common ways to tone your skin naturally :

  • Drink lots of water
  • Use Sunscreen during day time
  • Avoid Junk Foods
  • Do exercises regularly
  • Exfoliating your skin
  • Using Face Mask
  • Using Face Peels
  • Using Skin Spot Removers
  • Using Moisturizers
  • Applying Lemon Juice
  • Applying Oatmeal Paste
  • Applying Organic Honey
  • Applying Milk

Ready Your Skin For This Rainy Season

DID YOU KNOW…common infections like Flu, skin & eye infections are more prevalent during monsoons!

In Rainy Season, there is much more moisture in the air which allows germs to multiply. So, Handwashing and bathing with soap and clean water is the best recommendation to protect you from cough , cold, Flu, eye, stomach and skin infections.

With it, You have to be hydrated regardless of the temperature! Load up on water (8 glasses a day) and keep your skin well hydrated and glistening even if it’s raining.

Eating lots of green and leafy vegetables is a must. Fruits like watermelon, pomegranate, apple, grapes are excellent choices for good skin.

In this season, Strictly avoid junk food, and, instead, eat meals rich in good fats as they help in retaining moisture.

Say No to Heavy make-up - strict no-no

Use a cleanser that is mild but strong enough to remove excess oil and Grimes off of your skin.

The humidity that the rain brings can cause your skin to completely dry out. So don’t skip the moisturizer. 

Many people complain of oily skin due to the rise in humidity after a heavy downpour. Use a good facial scrub and exfoliate every alternate day.

Junk Food Effects on Your Health

Junk food has certain adverse affects on your body which if not controlled in time, may lead to severe health complications:

  • Obesity– Junk food contains fat and carbohydrates which, when accumulated leads to obesity. You put on weight and ultimately that hampers your health, makes you lazy and inactive.
  • Reduces Your Energy Level– Junk food does not consist of nutrients required to make our body healthy and energetic. Thus, when you consume it, you become obese, which further reduces your energy levels and ultimately your performance.
  • Health Conditions– Junk food is poison to one’s health. Besides obesity, it also harms the vital organs of our body. Many cardiologists believe that people who prefer junk food are more likely to suffer from a heart attack because of high cholesterol.

Beside this, it also affects the functioning of liver and kidney. Moreover, it is one of the biggest reasons for diabetes. So

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.

10 Tips To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks Effectively!

10 Tips To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks Effectively!

Pregnancy is a life-changing phase in a woman’s life. In addition to a baby (or babies!), there are a lot of physical and emotional changes also that come with it. The more evident are the physical ones, and in addition to weight changes, the stretch marks are the most obvious.

The uterus or the womb grows to its full extent to accommodate the developing baby, and so there is stretching of the connective tissue in these areas. After delivery, the tension is lost, and these marks become evident.

What are stretch marks?

These marks appear as lines on the skin and are most commonly found in areas such as the buttocks, arms, breasts, thighs and stomach. They are different in appearance in comparison to the normal skin. It may appear pinkish or purplish initially and then it takes a shiny appearance later. When you feel the stretch marks, you may feel a certain indentation or ridge on the skin. It may feel sore or itchy as well sometimes.

They most commonly appear during adolescence when there is rapid growth and stretching of the skin. It is also seen in women pre and post pregnancy. Stretch marks can also appear when there is a sudden change in weight.

How To Treat Them?

  1. Use Moisturisers: People who use moisturisers show an increased elasticity of the skin, which reduces the appearance of stretch marks on the skin. Keeping the skin hydrated stops the skin from tearing and creating stretch marks. Moisturising is not entirely effective on older marks, but it can help with newly formed stretch marks. You can also use it on areas that are prone to stretch marks.

  2. Retin-A: Retin- A is known to boost collagen production that helps the skin to stretch out with ease and not cause tears. When Retin-A is used, it is recommended to limit the sun exposure as the skin becomes more susceptible to sun damage and burning.

  3. Glycolic Acid: This chemical compound falls under the category of an alpha-hydroxy acid which is commonly found as a major ingredient in chemical peels. It is known to amplify the production of collagen and increase the tensile strength of the skin. Go to your dermatologist for a stronger dose for more effective results.

  4. A Combination of Retin-A and Glycolic Acid: A combination of these two potentiates the action of each other and gives better results.

  5. Vitamin E Oil: You can find Vitamin E oil capsules in medical shops that are known as the miracle medication when it comes to curing stretch marks.

  6. Essential Oils: Certain essential oils like rose oil, lavender oil, or geranium oil are known to reduce stretch marks.

  7. Vascular Laser: Pulsed dye laser that is kept at the wavelength of 585 nm is used to remove the stretch marks that are red and newly formed. It may not be effective on the older ones that have turned silver. This process is highly expensive and needs about 6 sittings. The efficacy of this procedure also depends on the complexion of the skin. Much like laser hair removal, vascular laser does not work on darker skin. The colour difference between the marks and the actual skin tone should be prominent.

  8. Fractional Laser Treatment or Laser Resurfacing: This is used to get rid of the older stretch marks that have turned light and are no longer red. This procedure is more expensive than the previous one and is prone to leave scars on the site of application.

  9. Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck: The only permanent solution to get rid of stretch marks is to cut them out entirely. If you are tired of the stubborn tiger stripes, then this could be your only way out.

  10. RF Micro-Needling Device: This is a more cost effective alternative to CO2 Laser Resurfacing that could be used on any stretch mark types –“new and old”. The micro needles are driven directly into the skin to a certain depth (0.2mm-3.0mm) and radiofrequency (RF) energy is then released inside the skin. Minimally invasive RF thermal energy creates fractional electrocoagulation in the dermis which facilitates a natural wound healing process promoting the remodelling of collagen. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Best way to improve your health is by improving your breathing technique

Hair Care

Remember always -

Excessive hair fall can be the result of certain illnesses, hormonal changes, over-use of hair products that contain chemicals or a poor diet.

What you may not have considered is that you can also lose a lot of hair by combing it the wrong way.

Never detangle your hair after shampooing.

Hair is known to be at its weakest when wet, which can also make it prone to tangling. Combing and excessive pulling of tangled, wet hair increases your chances of hair breakage and eventual hair loss.

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.
