Hi, I am Dr Akhilendra Singh, consultant dermatologist in AKS skin clinic. I am MD from PGI Chand...

Hi, I am Dr Akhilendra Singh, consultant dermatologist in AKS skin clinic. I am MD from PGI Chandigarh. Today I am going to talk about the common aesthetic procedure, which is Laser Hair Reduction.

There are a lot of doubts and myths in laser hair removal like it is Painful, skin damage ho sakti hai, koi permanent problem ho sakti hai, skin cancer ho sakta Hai.

So the answer is that there is very mild discomfort during the treatment procedure. Here in AKS clinic, we use Diode laser and there is no chance of skin damage in diode laser hair removal. And it has no relation with skin cancer.

Now with an advanced diode laser, we can treat all hair bearing areas. Even the sensitive areas like upper lip or the bikini area. Only we avoid is an area under the eyes. Laser hair reduction is not only for females for even men can pursue this treatment for beard shape, for unwanted hair, for the back, and the chest. 

Now, there is a very common section ki laser hair reduction me kitne sessions lagenge?

So it varies person to person and the area to be treated. But generally, it takes 6-8 sessions at 4-6 weeks interval. and after that 90% of hair gets permanently destroyed and there occurs hair reduction.

Advantages-

  • You look elegant.
  • It saves time, money, energy
  • It boosts up the confidence
  • And medically if we see, there are the chances of inner growth of hair after waxing. But laser hair reduction cures this problem permanently.

Side effects-

If we use Diode laser, under doctor's supervision, practically there is no side effect. But somebody is using some other laser or a good laser without doctor's supervision, then it may lead to burning, pigmentation permanently. So choose Laser Hair removal centre wisely. If you have any further query, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Hello, I'm Dr Akhilendra Singh, consultant hair transplant surgeon AKS clinics. I am MD from PGI,...

Hello, I'm Dr Akhilendra Singh, consultant hair transplant surgeon AKS clinics. I am MD from PGI, Chandigarh and member of an Association of Hair Restoration Surgeon of India.

Hair transplant is a safe and permanent solution for baldness.Today I will discuss technique of hair transplant broadly. There are two techniques only:

  • One is the older technique which is known as strip techniques
  • Second technique is follicular unit extraction or FUE.

FUE is the newer and far better technique than the older strip technique.

So, first I will talk about strip technique:   In the strip technique, we need to take a strip from the back of the head. Here we need to cut the skin along the hair strict length is approx 20 to 30 centimetres and width is 1 to 1.5 centimetres. Then we need to put suture and sutures are removed after one week.

Drawbacks of the strip technique was that,

  • We can take Graft only from the back of the head,  i.e, the scalp. We cannot take graft we cannot utilize graph from the body like the beard or Chest. So we cannot correct the big bald area in one go.
  • The second problem with the strip techniques is that it is more invasive because it is cut. There is suture for there is chance of bleeding during surgery. There is a chance of little more discomfort pain after surgery which takes more time to heal.
  • The third problem with this trick technique that it will definitely leave a permanent linear scar in the back of the head.

Now the second technique of hair transplant is follicular unit extraction.

Here we have extract Graft one by one from the back of the head. We can also extract from beard and the body area with a specialized instrument. In this technique, there is no cut and no sutures. So practically it is painless, is scarless and suture-less technique. Since the inception of the FUE, we are doing a lot of improvement in the technique.

The latest version is direct hair transplant or direct hair implant what we known as DST. In this technique here are taken and implanted side by side so that practically there is no time where grafts are hair grafts are out of body and it increases the survival by many folds. So the bottom line is in the modern FUE or DST techniques.

Advantages of DST:

  • We can take the number of grafts in one go so we can cover a big bald area in one session.
  • It is very comfortable for the patient. Healing time is just 24hours or less than that. So he can resume duty from the very next day.
  • DST technique we are reducing out of body time. We are increasing the result better results, faster results without any downtime.

So there is no drawback of an FUE DST technique. The only thing it is more time-consuming as it is more tedious and needs more experience to operate.

If you have further queries you can contact me on lybrate.

The importance of selecting the right Hair Transplant clinic and the parameters to decide

Hello! I am Doctor Akhilendra Singh, consultant hair transplant surgeon at APS Clinic. I am MD from PGI Chandigarh and member of Association of hair Restoration surgeon in India. Today I will discuss about how to choose a good hair transplant center?

Since nowadays a lot of centers run by non-medical professionals are mushrooming. So it is very difficult for the patient’s point of view to choose a good hair transplant center. And I will elaborate the points and they will be helpful for the patients is zero downing a good hair transplant center.

First and foremost for hair transplant consultations the patient should visit a center where he can consult with the operating surgeon himself and not in a salon or some self-proclaimed cosmetic centers which are run by non-medical professionals and consultation run by marketing a staff. Marketing a staff’s main motive is to sell hair transplant like any other product and they cannot guide properly because they themselves are not doctors Secondly for hair transplant the patient should look for basic infrastructure in the clinic like a proper dedicated OT and provision for sterilization. It is a surgery and it cannot be done by homeopathic or ayurvedi or Unani doctors, because they are not trained for any surgery.

Hair transplant is a minor surgery but requires a major artistry in order to provide a very natural result. Since it is a time consuming surgery, so it requires a lot of patience from the doctor and its team and from patient as well. Time consuming doesn't mean that there is any pain or discomfort, so hair transplant surgery should be without any pain or without any discomfort and the patient should be able to start and resume his normal day to day activity from the very next day and it is possible only when it is performed by an experienced hair transplant surgeon. While choosing hair transplant center patient should be smart enough, he should use his mind and he should not be lured by marketing gimmick like robotic hair transplant, very lucrative offers, or unlimited hair transplant.

In hair transplant surgery we need to extract the hair from the back side of the head and transplant on the bald zone, so donor area is limited and nothing is called unlimited hair transplant. Now coming to the complications or any side effect during the hair transplant. Since hair transplant is a surgery so we order few routine blood investigations before the surgery like blood sugar level hemogram...etc to avoid any complication. After all hair transplant is a surgery so center should be well equipped to take care of any emergency, though emergencies are very rare, but it may happen.

For any further consultation you can contact me via lybrate.

Hello, I am Dr. Akhilendra Singh consultant dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon at AK s cli...

Hello, I am Dr. Akhilendra Singh consultant dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon at AK’s clinic. Today I will discuss a very common problem which is hair loss and consequent baldness in males. Now around 40% individual had this problem. The primary root cause is genetic. There are medicines in order to prevent hair loss but for baldness, the only treatment is hair transplant which is a minor surgery but needs major artistry in order to provide a successful natural result and without any complications or side effect to the patients.

If you go in the history of hair transplant the successful hair transplant start in late 1980’s. It has come a long way from strip technique to manual punches to the motoric refuge and now the most advanced the most advance the Direct hair transplant or Direct hair implant. In this trip technique, we need to cut skin along with hair and put sutures and that technique was not suitable for the patients at all. Nowadays we do hair transplant with most advanced and newer technique of follicular unit extraction with some smart and newer innovation which is known as direct hair transplant or direct hair implant. Now coming to basics of hair transplant. The basic is we extract hair graft from permanent Joan of the head and transplant at the bald area.

Now, what is permanent join? If you see hair start shedding from the frontal Joan here line recedes and baldness goes from front to back or sometimes baldness starts from the very top. But this whole area is vulnerable and if you see the hair at the back of the head and sides and they always present and they form permanent Joan. Those hairs are immune for androgenic alopecia or genetic baldness.

Now if we transplant hair from this permanent Joan and transplant it to bald area. They will continue to grow for the whole life as they were growing at the back of the head. This is the basic of hair transplant. That is why the result of hair transplant is permanent. Now, what makes hair transplant result excellent, average or poor? First and foremost, the experience of hair transplant surgeon and his team. Secondly, instruments what we use during surgery is proper sterilization and a dedicated operation Theatre for the procedure and last but not least post-transplant instructions and care are as important as the procedure. So if these things are taken care of then the result of hair transplant must be excellent only. The goal of hair transplant should be; provide as natural results as possible to cover the big bald area in one go or without any side effect or discomfort to the patient.

If you have any further query regarding hair transplant you can consult me on Lybrate.

Botox for Men - How It Works!!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Botox for Men - How It Works!!

Caring for their look is no longer only restricted to women, men care about their looks just as much as women. In fact, it would be more suitable to say that majority of today's population cares about their looks and appearance. In an effort to look younger many men now-a-days are turning to Botox injections in order to get a more youthful appearance. There is no significant difference between Botox effects on men and women.

Here are nine things that men can expect with Botox treatment:

  1. A Ten Minute Procedure: The actually process of getting a Botox injection does not take longer than 10 to 15 minutes. There is no need for anesthesia and it can easily be performed as an outpatient procedure. A Botox injection is relatively pain-free.
  2. Get Back to Work: Botox is a procedure that you can get done even on your lunch break. Since it does not involve anesthesia of any kind, you can get straight back to the office within an hour of having the procedure. However, it is best to avoid strenuous activities and exercising for a week after the procedure.
  3. Quick Results: Botox results are not immediate but can be seen within 3 to 5 days of the injection being given. Optimal results can be noted 2 weeks after the process.
  4. Swelling and Bruising: Mild swelling is observed at the injection site, which resolves in max 1-2 hours, bruising is very rare, but if happens resolves on its own in 2-3 days maximum and can be easily concealed with light make up.
  5. Effects that Last 4 to 6 Months: Botox injections do make you look younger, but its effects do not last forever. The effect of Botox injections usually lasts for 4 to 6 months. After this, you will need to go through the procedure again to maintain the youthful appearance.
  6. Slowed Pace of Aging: Botox can also be used as a preventive measure when it comes to aging. Many men find that Botox can help prevent the formation of wrinkles and soften fine lines.
  7. Headaches: Though Botox injections are also a form of treatment for chronic migraines, one of the side effects of Botox is a mild headache. This should resolve itself within a few hours and is not something to worry about.
  8. A Few Side-Effects: Generally no untoward side effects are noted if done with the right technique, some rare side effects are drooping of eyelids which resolves on its own in 2 months.
  9. Compliments: 'Rested, refreshed, good'; These are some of the words you should get used to hearing when people talk about the way you look. As long as you use Botox in moderation and get the procedure done by an experienced doctor, you should be ready to look fabulous.

Effective Anti-Aging Skin Care After Menopause

Every woman endure menopause, by the time she reaches middle age. It comes with a lot of complications, and skin changes are also not spared. It is vital to know how to fight the skin changes of menopause to take right actions at the right time.

Changes Experienced: Major problems faced are hormonal changes and their declines. Ultimately, ovarian activity slows down decreasing in B-Estradiol levels. This leads to hot flashes or warmth feel under the skin, especially on face and profuse sweating. The overall experience leads to decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone, leading to skin changes.

  1. Oily Skin: Testosterone production is prominent that stimulates sebaceous glands to secrete thicker sebum making skin appear oily.
  2. Facial Hair: Some women show development of facial hair, especially on chin.
  3. Sagging Skin and Wrinkles: Decrease in estrogen leads to fat redistribution. This results in skin sagging on face, neck, hands and arms.
  4. Elastosis: Lower estrogen levels lead to decrease in collagen and elastin in the skin dermis. UV rays destroy collagen resulting in elastosis.
  5. Thinning Epidermis: This leads to trans-epidermal water loss and dry skin.
  6. Hyperpigmentation / Age Spots: Melanin production is tampered.

How to Fight Against It

Here are some tips on how to fight the skin changes of menopause.
1. With age, skin becomes dry. Right cleanser with a creamy formula is a solution for dry skin.
2. Use heavier cream to moisten your skin. Avoid hot, long showers.
3. Skin protection from sunlight is a must. Choose a sunscreen that is from a broad-spectrum SPF30 or higher and use it regularly.
4. Due to hormonal changes, wrinkles appear, and hence you need to apply moisturizer on face, jawline and neck regularly. Use skin-care products meant to act against fine lines and sagging.
5. Face, hands and chest usually get affected with age spots. Use sunscreen every day. Those who are already affected with spots, use exfoliating products. These products help to shed dead skin cells. Toners may also help.
6. Apply moisturiser on hands too and wear gloves while doing household or yard work.
7. Eat foods with antioxidants such as brightly-coloured fruits and vegetables.
8. Soy, which is rich in isoflavones, acts like estrogen in the body.
9. Stress tends to make skin drier. Yoga, meditation, etc. helps to relax.
10. Do exercise regularly to tone your muscles.
11. Sleep well: Beauty sleep is most essential to regenerate your cells. Sleep prevents dark circles under eyes. Around 8 to 9 hours of sleep is recommended.

Now you know how to fight the skin changes of menopause. Follow the tips and then age will be just a number. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Seborrheic Dermatitis - Causes And Symptoms

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Seborrheic Dermatitis - Causes And Symptoms

Seborrheic dermatitis refers to a kind of chronic skin rash affecting the scalp or face of a person. It has symptoms similar to that of eczema. Excess oil and greasiness could lead to this condition. This is a commonly noticed condition among children and adults. Seborrheic dermatitis is characterized by red patches, persistent dandruff, and flaking skin. This kind of skin disorder needs immediate treatment as neglecting the upsetting signs can turn out to be fatal; you may face a neurological breakdown after suffering for days together.

Take a look at the causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis

  1. Inflammatory responses often result in reddish patches on the skin.
  2. Malassezia could cause Seborrheic Dermatitis. Malassezia is a type of yeast present in the oil secretions of a human body. 
  3. Such a condition could be worsened by the predominant weather conditions. Extreme winters or early spring can make your skin peel off.

Symptoms a person may face:

  1. The first and foremost symptom is red colored skin. The skin will appear as itchy and tender.
  2. A stinging sensation is experienced in affected areas. The pain could be serious enough to prevent you from working or resting. 
  3. The eyelids of a person are at times under threat. This condition is more popularly known as blepharitis. The skin of your eyelids becomes red and crusted. 
  4. Dandruff can be found on your beard and moustache and even on your eyebrows. 
  5. Oily, flaky skin can be found on the scalp, ears, face, chest, armpits and also on the scrotum.

Skin disorders are taken lightly by most people. Many fail to realize how important skin is to the rest of our biological system. Skin is the primary barrier to all kinds of infections and diseases. A person should be aware of possibilities that can happen to trigger a skin condition like Seborrheic Dermatitis. Poking acne or scratching the skin of one's face, diabetes or obesity, psychological trauma, and weak immunity as noticed among patients of pancreatitis can actually increase your risk of contracting this disorder. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist and ask a free question.

10 Tips to Prevent Your Skin from Harsh Sun

MBBS, MD - Dermatology

10 Tips to Prevent Your Skin from Harsh Sun

The harsh sun during summer causes several problems apart from just sunburn. Prolonged exposure to the sun may lead to several skin conditions like brown spots, red and scaly spots, wrinkling, drying and skin cancer. It is important for you to prevent your skin from such harmful effects of the sun. Here are 10 tips you must follow in order to safe guard your skin against sun damage:

  1. Wear a sunscreen: You must apply a thick layer of sunscreen lotion on your skin before going out in the harsh sun, as a thin coating will reduce the effectiveness.
  2. Cover yourself up: It is important for you to cover up properly before going out in the sun. Clothing of dark and tightly woven materials absorb UV rays more than cotton fabrics of light shades. Hence, you should avoid dark clothes and wear light ones. When the sun is very harsh, a well-brimmed hat is also recommended for protection of your head.
  3. Stay indoors: You should avoid the sun during its peak and most intense hours, specifically between 10 in the morning to 4 in the evening. Try to stay indoors during these hours and use an umbrella, if you cannot avoid going out.
  4. Wear sunglasses: Sunglasses are a must before going out on an intense sunny day. Sun damage to the eyes can result in conditions like cataract and pterygium. Wear sunglasses with 99% to 100% UVB and UVA protection for keeping your eyes safe.
  5. Avoid reflective surfaces: Try to be careful near water, sand or snow, which are reflective surfaces. They reflect harmful rays of the sun, thereby increasing he chance of sunburn.
  6. Avoid sunbathing: During harsh sun conditions, you should avoid sun bathing. Fair-skinned people should keep away from sun bathing even more. When you observe that your shadow is shorter than you, you must find a shade.
  7. Do not get fooled by the weather: Do not think that a cloudy sky reduces the chances of a sun damage. In spite of a thick cloud cover, UV rays can penetrate your skin, thereby, causing substantial harm.
  8. Photosensitivity: Several medicines and drugs make the skin extra sensitive to the sun, increasing the risk of sunburn. Some herbal medicines are responsible as well. Keep away from these drugs.
  9. Avoid tanning beds: UVA rays present in tanning beds can penetrate your skin quite deep. In fact, regular exposure to UVA rays leads to skin drying and causes wrinkles.
  10. Consume antioxidants: Antioxidants provide protection from the sun’s rays. You should increase the consumption of vegetables, fruits and drink green tea during summer.

The sun’s rays cause more damage to the skin than you can think of. By following these preventive measures, you will be able to spend time in the sun without getting affected.
Keep the above-mentioned tips in mind and prevent your skin from the harsh sun.
