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<br/><br...

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.

Freckles - Know How To Get Rid Of Them!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Freckles - Know How To Get Rid Of Them!

The complexion of a person is determined by a pigment known as melanin. More the amount of melanin in a person, darker the complexion. The benefit of melanin is effective sun protection, and it prevents damage from sun exposure.

We have noticed people with dark (brown/black) spots that are darker than the surroundings skin. Commonly affected areas are the face, neck, hands, back, etc. These are melanin concentrated areas and become more visible in fair complexioned people. They are caused due to overproduction of melanin by the melanocytes, which are responsible for the production of melanin.

Now, what causes freckles is not clearly established, though the following are proposed.

  1. Exposure to sunlight: The cells responsible for melanin production absorb the sun and therefore produce excessive melanin. This is a natural defence mechanism of the skin.
  2. Ethnicity: Races with white skin are more likely to have freckles than races with darker skin.
  3. Weather: Some people tend to have freckles only in the summer with fairly clear skin during the winter.
  4. Genetics: If your parents or siblings have freckles, the chances of you having it are quite high.
  5. Tanning: Whether by natural means of greater exposure to the sun or artificially done if the salon, increases the chances of developing freckles.

Treatment: There are rumours stating that freckles are “angel kisses,” and “good night charms” and should not be removed as it would bring bad fortune. This is, however, not true and for purely cosmetic reasons, they need to be removed. The commonly affected age group (<30) also is cosmetically sensitive, and therefore the need to treat these.

Prevention is the best and the first solution. Whether by race, heredity, or lifestyle, if you are prone to develop freckles, ensure you are taking the necessary steps to avoid getting freckles in the first place. Avoid sun exposure without sun protection, avoid tanning, and you will be surprised how you can actually prevent freckles. Watch out for weather changes and avoid sun exposure. Reducing the amount of sun exposure can also help in keeping the freckles light, thereby not making too much of a cosmetic concern.

If prevention is not possible, some of the effective treatment measures include:

  1. Topical creams: These contain bleaching agents like Retin-A. One disadvantage though is that it acts on the entire skin and not just the freckles.
  2. Laser: A beam of the laser is used to get rid of the unwanted melanocytes which produce melanin. It also improves skin tone and colour.
  3. Cryotherapy: Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the melanin-producing cells, thereby removing freckles.

After treating freckles, preventing freckle formation with limiting sun exposure and sun protection is extremely essential.

Right Time To Get A Hair Transplant!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Right Time To Get A Hair Transplant!

Premature hair thinning, receding hairline, increased hair fall and other problems related to your scalp are directly proportional to your psychological health. Being overly concerned about one's physical appearance does not always result from vanity. It could be the plain and simple desire of being acceptable to oneself. Today surgeons are capable of transplanting and extracting large number of hair follicles.

The reasons when one may opt for a hair transplant are:

  1. Traction alopecia: This type of hair loss occurs due to exertion of external pressure on the hair which may cause it to fall. If the hair does not grow back then it would result in a bald patch. Thus you may opt for a hair transplant procedure if you suffer from this disorder and experience loss of hair.
  2. Involutional alopecia: It is a form of alopecia where the hair growth tends to decrease due to ageing resulting in thinning and shorter hair. The follicles remain in the telogen phase (resting phase) for an extended amount of time. You may opt for a hair transplant surgery to correct this disorder.
  3. Trichotillomania: This is a psychological condition where a person pulls out his/her hair. If excessive hair is lost, resulting in bald spots, then you may opt for hair transplant surgery.

Hair transplant surgery is naturally a lasting and safe treatment for hair loss, as the chances for your body to reject the intervention in the form of implanted hair is minimal. This is because the technique that is used involves taking your own hair out from the follicle roots, (mostly from areas like the neck or the back and sides of your head) where they are not needed so much and place them in specially designed holes in the bald areas. Since no external factors are involved, the body does not tend to reject the transplant.

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

Hair Transplant - Know It's Detailed Procedure!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Hair Transplant - Know It's Detailed Procedure!

There are 2 types of hair transplant methods, namely, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). In the FUE procedure, an incision is made near the hair follicle, after which the follicle is transplanted to the thinning area. Of the two processes, this is the costlier one and also takes a longer time since the procedure is repeated for each hair follicle. The FUT method, on the other hand, involves removing a strip of the outer layer of the skin and then transplanting it into the thinning area.

This procedure is simple and one hardly feels a thing

  1. The Planning Stage: In the planning phase, a surgeon finds out the density, color, quantity and the quality of the donor's hair. The face of the person is closely analyzed before the surgery starts. Every small detail is noted and observed by the doctor in this phase.
  2. Pre-surgery: The patient is required to wash the hair thoroughly with a shampoo one day prior to the surgery. The same process should be repeated with a scrub two hours before the surgery.
  3. Donor preparation: The donor hair is trimmed to 2-3 mm and injected with local anesthesia. The area is then injected with normal saline so that it swells. The patient then becomes ready for the surgery.
  4. Donor tissue removal: The hair tissue from the donor area is now removed one by one. The tissue consists of hair follicles that make transplantation possible. The doctor stitches the area and this stitch is removed after 10 days of surgery.
  5. Graft preparation: The tissue plucked from the donor area is then grouped. Every group consisting of hair follicles are monitored before they go through a lot of procedure. Many follicles are rejected after the procedure and the leftovers are used for replacement. Patients mostly relax during this time.
  6. Graft insertion: Now the recipient area is prepared by injecting local anesthesia. The surgeon goes on to make several incisions in the recipient area. The number of incisions done is equal to the number of follicles available from the donor. This is the most crucial step in the whole procedure. A transplant surgeon is required to focus on minute details such as the depth of incision, the angle of hair, location of placing the new follicles etc. The follicles are placed one by one. This procedure might take hours depending on the number of grafts to be implanted.
  7. Post-surgery procedure: Hair transplant is completed and the patient is sent back home on the same day. Most surgeons abstain from putting any bandage as there is a risk of damaging the draft. Tiny hair stubbles along with the incisions are witnessed after a couple of days from the surgery. The swelling that may result from this procedure quickly heals. You will see new strands of hair within a couple of weeks of the surgery.

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

Dear Mrlybrate-user, as you mentioned grade VI baldness, only treatment for baldness is hair transplant. PRP treatment is to prevent hair loss and strengthen hair, improve hair quality, it is not treatment of baldness.

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.

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

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.

  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.

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.
