I have a low hair density, and thin hair. How can make it dense and thick hair? Or anyhow make it better?
Having too much of dandruff all throughout the year. It never goes off my hair. Plus having thin and dull hair.
Today I will explain about excessive hair growth also called as hirstusim. We would also be discussing the different hair removal techniques available for the management of this condition. Recently a large number of people, especially females are suffering from the problem of excessive hair growth. This hair growth can occur in any region of the body, however the upper lips and beard area are the most commonly affected.
Hair removal lasers are a new technology in dermatology which can help in tackling this problem of excessive hair growth.
Causes of excessive hair growth:
Hormones and hormonal imbalances are one of the chief causes of excessive hair growth. A large number of females in the Indian subcontinent are suffering from polycystic ovarian disease ( PCOD). This condition leads to severe hormonal imbalances which can cause excessive hair growth in females. Excessive hair growth, also called as hirsutism can occur over any area of the body. The beard area, upper lips, chin, under arms are the commonest areas where such hair growth is seen. Such hair growth in females can have a detrimental effect on the well being as well as self confidence. However with the recent advances in the field of dermatology, a large number of laser treatments are available for the management of this condition. Diode lasers are the gold standard in the management of this condition. Diode lasers target and destroy the hair roots, which help in achieving a permanent hair reduction.Multiple sessions are required for this technique. It is a safe technique without any major side effects. Recently a large number of females are facing the problems of excessive hair growth or hirsutism, This adversely affects their confidence as well as well being. However with proper laser treatment, excellent results are obtained in the management of this condition.
Knee injury can occur from the direct blow as well as through stretching and twisting injuries. At times the ligament that holds the knee in place gets stressed and results in sprains. Depending on the extent of the ligament and fibre damage, the sprains are graded. Then there are knee injuries that are caused by overuse of it. These injuries cause harm to the tendons and the muscles. Since the knee is interconnected to a lot of other structures, any damage to the knee can have serious repercussion to other connected bones and ligaments.
What are the Risk Factors?
1. Muscle imbalance leading to hamstring spasm.
2. Imbalance of the thigh muscle leading to injury of the knee.
3. Pregnant women and people who are overweight are at increased risk of knee injury
Signs and Symptoms of a Knee Injury:
Knee injuries that are serious in nature can result in instant swelling along with difficulty in bending it. People may find it difficult to bear any sort of weight whatsoever. Joint pain, swelling, inflammation of the muscles are some of the other symptoms of injury to the knee. Pain, instability, locking of the knee can be felt while walking fast or climbing stairs.
When to Contact a Doctor?
Any knee injury should be instantly reported to a doctor. Signs such as deformity, loss of sensation, cold ankle, swelling of knee etc. are signs of a knee injury. A doctor should be consulted, if home remedies such as rest, elevation, compression and ice treatment fail to fetch any fruitful results. If the swollen area has become warm and red and accompanies fever, it is a sign to visit the doctor.
How is a Knee Injury Diagnosed by a Doctor?
A doctor starts the diagnosis with medical history along with physical exam of the patient. Doctor first does a thorough inspection of the nerve and blood supply of the area.The next step of the diagnosis includes palpation. This is a step where the doctor tries to find out the exact location of the pain and tries to correlate the same with the injury location. The doctor might also stress the ligament in order to find out if they are fine. Other imagery tests such as X-ray and MRI are performed to find out the exact location of the injury.
The nature of the injury decides the treatment plan. In many cases, the injured area is suggested to be kept at rest or moved in the specific direction as per the direction of a physiotherapist. For serious injuries with a tendon or ligament injury, a reconstructive surgery is necessary to get the knee to the original condition. The type of surgical procedure depends on the kind of Injury one have faced.
