A diet rich in iron, calcium and silica can help greatly in reducing or preventing hair loss. Iron can be obtained from green leafy vegetables such as spinach and collard greens. Oatmeal and raw oats contain a considerable amount of silica. Potato skin, green and red peppers, cucumbers and bean sprouts are all rich sources of silica too.

My skin tone is uneven. I am not sure what is the product which makes my skin dark.

My skin tone is uneven. I am not sure what is the product which makes my skin dark.
Hi, Believe me, if you are happy from inside and taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected on your face. Yes, the colour which is inherited from your parents/ ancestors, cannot be changed, but you can try to get glow on your face!! Daily Regime: Apart from these, you do follow CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30 – a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare cream may be, 20-30 minutes before going out daily and repeat it's application after every 3-4hrs.) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. Eat right and healthy that too on time, relieve your stress/ tensions, sleep well, stop smoking, as this restricts blood flow to your face and leaves you with a greyish complexion. lead a healthy lifestyle! Apart from this, avoid anger, anxiety, fear which increases stress hormone in the body and subsequently makes your complexion darker! (Hormonal imbalances also plays a major role). If the dull and dark skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter. Diet: -Increase your Vitamin C intake (lemon,orange,gooseberry,etc.Fruits/juices, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and green peas). - Eat more Vitamin A (nonfat milk, oysters, and egg yolks, carrots, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, or other dark colored produce) . If you feel your skin is weak or not tight enough, that usually suggests a lack of Vitamin A. Medicine: You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. Home remedies: Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. Make a paste of 'Kasturi Manjal' (wild turmeric) with rose petals, saffron and raw milk which is very effective. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin.

These are the methods to treat pimples - •Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your face again & again because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTSHODHAK syrup of BAIDYANATH company once a day after meals

Treatment for Scars and Unwanted Hair Removal

Main Dr. Nishant Chhajer, Gunjan Clinic ke taraf se aapka abhivaadan karta hu aur main aapko batana chahta hu ke pichle 8 varsho se main cosmetic surgery aur plastic surgery ke chehtra mein karya kar raha hu. Main sarkari aur gair sarkari, sabhi tarah ke sansthaano mein kaam kiya hai. is waqt hum apni clinic aur hospitals ke dwara noida, greater noida aur muraadabaad mein apni sevaye de rahe hai. humara prayaas hai ki aap sachai ke sath cheezon ko sune aur ussi hisaab se hum aapko promises karte hai. aur nishjit hi aajkal ki duniya mein acha dikhna bahut hi mahatvapurn hai aur sabhi chahte hai wo ache dikhe, koi apne chehre par kalapan naa rahe, jhurriya na rahe, nishaan na rahe, acne na rahe, scars na rahe, chehre pe baal na rahe, daadhi ho toh bilkul shape mein ho, galat jagah pe jaha pe wo pasand na karte hai wo naa uge, banana bhi na pade.

Toh, bahut saari iske liye ilaaj available hai, jaise ki facials hai, chemical peels hai, cosmetic fat crafting hai, fillers hai, lasers hai, botox hai, is tarah ke bahut saari cheezein hai. isme sabse important ye hai ki aap jaha bhi is baare mein raye lete hai kya wo wyakti ke liye sahi hai ya nahi hai aur usko anubhav kitna hai. iske baad mein unka commitment kya hai, unka satisfaction rate aur result kya hai. iske baad mein aap ye dekh sakte hai ki kya wo commit karte hai. humara prayaas ye rehta hai ki hum jo hai job hi practically possible hai ussi ko commit karte hai and we try to fulfill that. Bajaye mareez ko bewajah zada promise karke practical promikses ko fulfil karne ka humara prayaas hota hai. jaisa ki aap lasers ke baare mein jaante hai toh lasers kayi tarah ke hote hai aur bahut hi aajkal jo prachlit hai, baal hatane wale laser.

Aaj ki paripeksh mein diode laser hair removal ke liye sabse uttam maani jaati hai. humare centre pe diode laser se hair removal hota hai. ye individual sitting or package ke aadhaar pe hota hai, iske results bahut hi reliable hai, more than 87% satisfaction rate hai aur hair reduction rate hai. dusra aata hai til aur masse aur tattoo hatana, toh Q Switch Nd yag Laser bahut hi acha maana jaata hai. aur sahi wyakti dwara karne par iska result bahut hi acha aata hai, aur generally til, masse, tattoo hatane ke baad mein amuman koi nishaan nahi bachta hai. teesra scar removal CO2 Fractional laser ya RBM yag laser hum use karte hai jisme ki hum chote mote scars ya bahut saare baareek bareek scars acne se related scars ko hata sakte hai.

chemical peel ek bahut hi acha tareeka hai, bahut saare pigments ya scars ko hatane ka ya mild, moderate, severe depth ke hisaab se ho sakta hai aur kaafi cost effective bhi ho sakta hai. bahut zada kharcha nahi hai, results kaafi reliable hai aur sahi tareeke se karne pe ye aapko scar-free problem free results aapko deta hai. thoda laser aur peeling ke sath precaution hai ki aap thoda dhoop ke sath dhyan rakhege toh result aapko zada acha milega, aur zada jaldi milega.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
I have a long hair and also a growth of my hair is good but last some months  I have a hair fall so please give some ...
Hi. Let me tell you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent (which is called as 'Hairloss' rather). In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, may be because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up, subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. (There are different pattern and types of hairloss, because of different reasons like Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, etc.) Causes of hairloss: Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or male/ female pattern baldness - hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger, use of bore water, any other underlying diseases, etc. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

Difference Between Hair Implant and Hair Transplant

Hair is a person's crowning glory and to witness bald spots emerge or thinning hair can be a nightmare for many. Thankfully, with advances in cosmetic surgery, this is not something you need to settle for. With a hair implant or a hair transplant surgery, you can easily cover bald spots and thicken thin hair. So which one should you go for? At the onset, hair implants and hair transplants seem to be synonyms.

While both address baldness and thinning hair, this is not the case. Getting a hair implant involves implanting synthetic hair into the scalp while a hair transplant involves the removal of hair follicles from one part of the scalp and implanting them into another part of the scalp.

Here are a few ways the two procedures differ:

  • Look: Hair implants involve synthetic hair and hence can never look completely natural. A hair implant is often compared to a wig that has been fixed to your scalp. On the other hand, a hair transplant uses your own hair and hence merges with your existing hair. With time, no one will be able to tell if you've had a hair transplant while with hair implants.
  • Grooming: You can cut synthetic fibers implanted in your scalp, but hair implants will not grow like natural hair. Thus, if you undergo this procedure to address thinning hair, you will have to settle for the same hairstyle for quite a long time. Hair transplants will grow and fall like the rest of your hair. Also if a hair follicle that has been transplanted falls, it can re-grow, but if a hair implant strand falls, it will need to be replaced with another synthetic follicle. Thus the chances of needing follow up surgeries are higher with hair implants than with hair transplants.
  • Rejection: The chances of your body rejecting a synthetic fiber are much higher than the chances of your body rejecting a hair follicle transplant. Thus, the chances of infections are higher with hair implants than hair transplants.
  • Results: Hair implants have instant results whereas when it comes to a hair transplant, it can take up to 8 months to notice visible results. In the meanwhile, the hair follicles may temporarily fall from the area the transplant was taken from as well.

Today, between the two, a hair transplant is more preferred than a hair implant. Before taking a decision between the two, go over the pros and cons with your doctor and see what form of treatment is more suitable to you.
