Hi Lybrate-user, Tanning is a common problem with Indian skin as we have less tendency to have a skin burn and our skin is rich in eumelanin. You can increase your intake of vitamin A (beta carotene), vitamin C and antioxidant rich food. These can be found in foods like papaya, mango, walnuts, tomatoes, lime, oranges, green tea. I would suggest you avoid sun exposure between 10 am and 4 pm. The right way to apply sunscreen is 1 tsp for face, one for each hand, 2.5 tsp for each arm 5 tsp for back. And you need to repeat it every 3 hours irrespective of the spf of the sunscreen. Also you need to focus more on boot star rating or PA index of sunscreen as the UVA is responsible for tanning.

Dear lybrate-user, first rule to reduce pigmentation is a good sunscreen. Please select one from reputed company which is gives you protection from both uva and uvb protection. There are lot of skin lightening creams available which should be used under doctors supervision as unsupervised application can lead to severe skin damage. You can apply lemon mixed with water to begin with and then undiluted fresh lime as skin gets used to. But please remember most important is sun protection for pigmentation.

Laser Hair Removal - Can It Target Hair Follicles Across You Body?

Laser Hair Removal - Can It Target Hair Follicles Across You Body?

Body hair are typically seen as a manly attribution. For this reason, both men and women are constantly trying to keep their body hair free. Common ways of removing body hair includes shaving, waxing and the use of Depilatories. However, none of these techniques can permanently remove hair and hence need to be repeated regularly. The only way to permanently remove body hair is through laser hair removal therapy.

  • Laser hair removal can be used to address and remove hair on almost any part of the body including the face, arms, legs and bikini line. This procedure involves focusing intense light on the hair follicle pigments known as melanin without affecting the surrounding skin. The melanin absorbs this light energy and converts it to heat energy which in turn stops the stem cells in the hair roots from regenerating. This weakens the hair follicles to the point of falling off.
  • Hair removal is considered permanent when the hair follicles do not grow back. After the first session, new hair growth is often lighter and less dense than before. On an average, complete hair removal may require 5 to 6 laser sessions. Since laser therapy can be used to address only those follicles that are in the growing stage, these sessions are usually spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During this time the hair follicles that were in the resting phase can grow out. The number of sessions required also depends on the quality and number of hair follicles, individual’s hormone levels, and metabolism. In some cases where hair growth is very dense, maintenance treatment may be required once in six months or annually.
  • The procedure is relatively pain free. During the treatment, the patient may experience a faint prick or sensation of warmth. When treating sensitive areas, topical anesthesia may also be used. However, this is rarely needed. This form of laser therapy can take anywhere between 5 to 45 minutes for a single session depending on the amount of area being addressed.
  • Laser hair removal is considered a safe procedure and has minimal side effects. In some cases, it may cause a temporary change in the color of the skin of the treated area, but this usually resolves itself without medication. This can be prevented by using a good sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and avoiding exposure to sunlight. In rare cases, people with a dark complexion may develop blisters and experience swelling and redness of the skin.

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

Chemical Peels - What To Know?

Chemical Peels - What To Know?

A lot of teenagers face common skin problems such as acne, which leave behind scars that appear worse with time. There are many products available in medical stores to treat acne, but not all are effective. With advancements in the cosmetic industry, it is now possible to improve the appearance of the skin on the hands, neck and face. Chemical peels, where a chemical solution is applied to the skin, are used for this purpose. The chemical solution exfoliates the skin and it eventually peels off. The old skin which is wrinkled and less smooth is regenerated and the skin is now smooth and flawless. The use of chemical peels is safe and they work wonders to your skin.

Types of Chemical Peels and their Use
Chemical Peels are also known as BHA (beta-hydroxy corrosive) or AHA (alpha-hydroxy corrosive). It is a treatment that can be performed on your skin to exfoliate it. They are mainly used to attain smooth skin. The first peel is superficial. The medium peel, which is used for the second level of intensity mainly targets the damaged skin cells. The effect is used on central as well as external layers of skin mainly to remove wrinkles, freckles and age spots.

The third type of chemical peel is the deep peel which infiltrates into the skin deeply. It helps to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and spots. It is also useful in removing shallow scars as it can reach deeper and distinctive results can be attained in comparison to any other treatment. It is very important that this treatment using deep peels is done by a well-qualified cosmetic surgeon.

Conditions Treated By Chemical Peels
Skin appearance can be improved to a great extent by the use of chemical peels. These help to reduce fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes. They are also used to treat wrinkles that are caused due to aging and sun damage. Mild scars can also be removed using chemical peels and they can even treat certain types of acne. They are beneficial in reducing dark patches that occur due to pregnancy. The feel and look of the skin can be improved with these peels. The peels are very sensitive to skin and it is very important that you make use of a sunscreen every day as it protects the skin against UVB and UVA rays of the sun.

Individuals having severe wrinkles and sagging skin must not opt for chemical peels as their skin does not respond to them. In such cases, it is best to make use of surgical procedures such as facelift or laser resurfacing methods. However, it is best to consult a dermatologist surgeon in this matter to determine the best treatment. They are good anti-ageing weapons and are beneficial in treating uneven skin tone, acne prone skin and pigmentation disorders.

Vitiligo - 7 Most Common Reasons Behind It!

Vitiligo - 7 Most Common Reasons Behind It!

Vitiligo is a skin disorder where white patches of depigmentation develop on the skin and keep enlarging. This disorder is long term and continuous in nature. The patches appear due to the death of melanocytes within the skin. Melanocytes are skin pigment producing cells, which produce melanin. Vitiligo can affect the skin of several areas, including the eyes, hair and the portion inside the mouth.

Causes:
The causes of this disease are as follows:

  1. Autoimmune disorders in which the immune system of a patient becomes over reactive and the melanocytes are destroyed.
  2. This disease may also occur due to genetic oxidative stress imbalance.
  3. Stressful events may also lead to vitiligo.
  4. Harm or damage to the skin from sunburns or cuts also leads to vitiligo.
  5. Exposure of the skin to several harmful chemicals may be a cause.
  6. Neural disorders are also responsible for vitiligo.
  7. Vitiligo may also happen from viral causes or may be hereditary and passed on from family members.

Symptoms:
Vitiligo has only one major symptom. White, flat spots and patches develop on the surface of the skin. The earliest of these white patches appear on the parts of the body which are exposed to the sun continuously.
It starts off as a simple spot in the beginning and gradually, the spot starts getting pale and finally turns white. The patches have irregular shapes, and in some cases the edges get inflamed and are red in color. Itchiness is experienced in the affected areas. Symmetrical patches signify slow development of vitiligo.

The two major types of vitiligo are:

  1. Non segmental vitiligo, which affects the back of the hand, the arms, knees, elbows, feet, mouth.
  2. Segmental vitiligo, which is more stable than non segmental vitiligo, but spreads faster. It usually affects areas of the skin, which are attached to nerves.

Treatment:
The different methods of treatment for vitiligo are:

  1. Phototherapy with UVB and UVA light: Exposing the affected area of the skin to UVB lamps is a popular cure for vitiligo. This treatment can be performed easily at home. UVA treatment incorporates taking of a drug which makes the skin more sensitive to ultraviolet light and then the skin is exposed to high doses of UVA light.
  2. Skin Camouflage: Cosmetic creams and makeup can be used to camouflage affected areas of the skin. These topical creams are waterproof.
  3. Depigmentation: Depigmentation is used to treat widespread areas affected by vitiligo. The skin color of the unaffected areas is reduced in order to match the affected areas. It is done using topical ointments.

Vitiligo is a skin disease, the major causes of which are still to be discovered. Proper care and treatment should be taken for skin areas affected by vitiligo.

Skin Care For Every Age

Skin Care For Every Age

For every stage of life!

It’s a bit cliché to say you want to grow old gracefully. The truth is that no woman really wants their skin to sag or get wrinkles. Here’s how to retain elasticity and protect your skin from damage. With a little luck and a lot of planning and prevention, you can stay youthful for decades.

In your skincare routine you should…

Use sunscreen religiously

Make sunscreen an important part of your routine to protect your skin from premature aging, uneven skin tone, dark spots, freckles.
Using sun protection lotions with atleast spf 30 daily will help your skin in the long term.

Gentle cleansers

Use cleansers at least 2-3 times a day to keep your skin oil free clear out the dirt & debris.

Moisturising

Use water based moisturisers if you have oily skin and cream based for dry skin types. We often tend to neglect moisturising routine if we have oily skin type but we should understand that oil moisture are different things! moisture is hydration which forms a protective barrier in our skin.

In your 40s you should…

Use retinoids

Retinoids have become the new age skin care essentials. Retinoid refers to a derivative of vitamin a, a vitamin that is proven to boost collagen production, soften fine lines and winkles, and minimizes pores. Vitamin a can upregulate skin cell turnover, meaning that your skin will renew itself more often.

This produces softer, smoother, and more radiant skin. Dark spots start to fade.
 Ideally, whatever formulation you choose will contain at least 1 percent retinol, which is the highest allowed in a non-prescription cream.
Consider roc retinol correxion deep wrinkle serum.

You will notice that you’re more sensitive to the sun, so you should either minimize exposure during the initial two week period or wear sunscreen, clothes that protect you from uva and a hat.

Your skin may start to dry out during use. This is normal. Flaking and peeling is also normal. This will pass and, when it does, your skill will look amazing. Once you’ve achieved the results you want, you can discontinue use.
Your doctor can guide you best on use of these creams.

Exfoliate at least once a week

Consider use of alpha-hydroxy acid twice a week. This will boost exfoliation, making your skin brighter and smoother. If you already have problems with dry skin, choose an aha formulation with lactic acid or other moisturizing agents in it.

Consider hydroquinone

The next step beyond exfoliation is hydroquinone. It’s not for everyone, but it can make a difference for some. This substance inhibits melanin production, which is a good way to fade out skin blotchiness.

Be cautious to use it without prescription, your doctor will best guide you for its use. The maximum amount of time you should use the product is 3 months. Beyond that time, you should switch to kojic acid or licorice extract.

In your 50s you should…

Switch cleansers

As you grow older, it gets harder and harder to maintain moisture levels in your skin. So, oil-stripping cleansers and gels should be replaced with moisturizing agents. Hydrating creams will help prevent the natural drying that’s caused by skin cleansers, but it can also help with the side-effects of using retinoids.

Switch retinoids

One thing you’ll notice from retinoid use is that it’s incredibly drying. After a while, your face will feel like a desert. It’s time to switch to moisturising night creams if you aren’t already using them.

Consider eye cream

Lastly, consider using eye cream for maintenance to lighten, lift, and refresh your under eyes. Sometimes, that’s the best option.

In your 60s you should…

Minimize facial cleansing

Every facial cleanser out there can dry and irritate the skin. Even creamy cleansers can do this due to various drying agents used in them.
Minimize use of cleansers to twice a day.

Use more moisturizers

This is where things get tricky. You need to start using formulas with a high concentration of natural oils which will moisturize your skin. If at all possible, stick with natural oils rather than petroleum-based ones.

Formulations like vitamin c serum to help with moisturizing while also keeping cell turnover up so that you can extend your youthful appearance.

Chemical Peels: Conditions They Treat - A Warning!

M Ch. Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Durg
Chemical Peels: Conditions They Treat - A Warning!

A chemical peel is a form of skin treatment where an acid solution is used for the removal of damaged outer layers of the skin. Alpha hydroxyl acids and trichloroacetic acids are used in chemical peels. Phenol is also applied to the skin. Chemical peels aid in improving the skin’s appearance. The chemical acid solution makes the skin peel off. The new skin is much smoother and is less wrinkled.

Chemical peels are of several types:

  1. Superficial peels: In this type, alpha hydroxyl acid is used to penetrate the outer layer of the skin and exfoliates it gently. Superficial peels are used for improving the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin.
  2. Medium peels: In medium peels, trichloroacetic acid is used for penetrating into the middle layers of the skin to remove damaged cells. Improvement in age spots, lines and wrinkles can be done using medium peels. Rough skin is smoothened.
  3. Deep peels: In the case of deep peels, trichloroacetic acid or phenol is used for penetrating the middle layers of the skin to remove damaged cells. Skin appearance is improved drastically.

Conditions treated with chemical peels
Chemical peels are used for the treatment of certain conditions. They can be used to treat the following conditions:

  1. Reduction in fine lines which occur under the eyes or around the mouth.
  2. Treatment of wrinkles which are caused due to sun damage or old age. This is done using chemical peels.
  3. Chemical peels help in improving the appearance of mild scars on the skin surface.
  4. Several types of acne are cured by chemical peels.
  5. Chemical peels help in reducing age spots, freckles and dark patches known as melasma, which occur because of pregnancy or because of taking birth control pills.
  6. The overall look and feel of the skin are improved after using chemical peels.

After a chemical peel treatment is done, the skin becomes extra sensitive to the sun. Hence, it is recommended to use a sunscreen lotion, which also protects against UVA and UVB light rays.

Are chemical peels safe?
Chemical peels are very effective and provide perfect rejuvenation to the skin. However, as far as safety is concerned, you should know that chemical peels have some side effects.

  • They may result in a temporary or permanent change in the skin color, especially in women who take birth control pills.
  • Scarring can occur and cold sores can get reactivated.

Chemical peels involve the use of chemicals or acid to improve the appearance and condition of the skin. This procedure is an effective one and satisfactory results are obtained.
