Hello! This is Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi, practicing dermatologist from Andheri West.
A very common question ask to me is about pigmentation and darkness. Many patients do the mistake of self-treatment of pigmentation based on the advice of chemist or friends. This can be very dangerous as they end up buying steroid containing skin lightening creams. This not only causes steroid addiction but can also lead to numerous side effects which can result in steroid damage face. Pigmentation is a common problem with many causes. The cause of pigmentation can be determined with simple clinical examination and can be treated scientifically under the care of skin experts.
Most commonly people suffer from tanning, acanthosis or melisma. Apart from creams and tablets other modalities of treatment like chemical peels and mesotherapy can give good reduction and clearance of pigmentation. Please refrain from self-treatment and quackery at the behalf of chemist and friends. Please make an appointment with me on lybrate.com.read more
Hello! This is Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi, consultant dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon from Mumbai.
I will be addressing the various myths that are associated with hair transplant which creates a lot of confusion and fears in the minds of patients. Firstly hair transplant is just a re-arrangement of hair from the back to the front of the scalp which is effected with baldness and loss of hairline. Earlier techniques required cutting and suturing which would create an ugly scar at the back of the scalp. The latest FUE technique which we use is safe done under local anesthesia and is a scarless procedure.
We simply extract hair from the back of the hair which are called follicular units and implant them to the front thus creating a new hairline in a balding patient. Hence this procedure is called Follicular Unit Extraction. There are no cuts, sutures and bleeding are minimal. Since this is a minor surgery post-procedure period is comfortable, painless and the patient can resume work shortly. To get back to youthful look say no to baldness and say yes to hair transplant please make an appointment with me at lybrate.com.read more
Hello I’m Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi, practicing dermatologist in Andheri West Mumbai.
I will be talking to you about platelet rich plasma therapy also called as PRP. This is the latest treatment for hair loss and can be used in impairing baldness in both men and women. A small amount of patient’s blood is collected, processed and centrifuged to make platelet rich plasma. No external agents are added thus making it free from chemicals and preservatives.
Platelets upon entry into the scalp releases a lot of growth factors which helps in reducing the hair loss at the same time also encourages new hair growth. This can be done at monthly intervals. And 6-8 sittings can give phenomenal results in cases of pattern baldness and other causes of hair loss. For more information please make an appointment with me from lybrate.com.read more
Hello. I am Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi. Practicing dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon in Mumbai. I will be talking about male Pattern Baldness, which is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Male Pattern Baldness which also called Androgen etic alopecia has nothing to do with water, change of place, or neutrional deficiencies. This happens due to the effect of DHT on the hair follicles which result in miniaturization. This means the hair on the front end on the crown area of the head initially start reducing its density, the hair line starts receding and the hairs are progressively lost over a period of time. This may not always be genetic and can happen at any age after 20. Females can also be affected by the pattern hair loss. We follow US FDA approved treatment for pattern baldness. Recent advances such as platelet Rich Plasma therapy that is PRP, Mesotherapy and micro needling can help getting faster results. Hair transplant is indicated only when the hair line is completely receded or in advance cases of baldness. We are doing hair transplant with the latest FUE technique. For further information, please contact me on Lybrate.com
Hello. I am Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi. Practicing dermatologist in Mumbai. I will be talking about fungal infections, which is a very common problem in today’s time. Although it can affect any part of the body but most commonly if affects the private parts, such as inner thighs, grime, and buttock area. The treatment of fungal infection is very simple. We have to prescribe anti-fungal drugs for 4 to 6 weeks following which it resolves. These days fungal infection has become a chronic and recreant problem. It initially subside with treatment only to reoccur back after a due days. The most common reason for reoccurrence of fungal infection is the use of steroid containing combination creams. These creams are available over the counter and are also used on the advice of local chemist or relatives. Please do not use such steroid containing combination creams such as pandom, Quandrium, betnovate, candidB. Hazole, ZoleF, Dermifive. Failure to follow up and use of cheap generic anti-fungal drugs is another cause of reoccurrence disease. If you follow the dermatology advice carefully and follow up regularly on time fungal infection can easily be cured.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatments
One of the most common indications of laser is for the treatment of acne scars. Acne is a very common problem faced by most teenagers, and even adults up till the age of 30. Acne can sometimes leave behind marks and scars which can have a detrimental effect on a person’s confidence and self-esteem. There are many ways to treat acne scars, but the most effective way is fractional carbon dioxide laser resurfacing. Nothing comes close to this mode of treatment when we talk about acne scars. A few sittings of carbon dioxide laser resurfacing can give phenomenal results in the appearance of the acne scars. Carbon dioxide laser can also improve the pores and oiliness of the skin.
In addition, it can also be used for reversing the effects of age on the face, that is, as an anti-aging treatment. Other methods are also available to treat acne scars, such as chemical peels or micro needling with derma pen or derma roller. Chemical peel is a time-tested and well-established mode of treatment for active acne, pigmentation left behind by heled pimples and to some extent, acne scars. It can also improve your skin tone and effects of sun damage on the skin.
Excessive or unwanted hair is a very common problem faced by both men and women in today’s time, and they don’t want to waste time in shaving or waxing. This brings me to the second most common indication for laser, that is, hair reduction. We have a laser called diode laser, which is the most advanced technology for laser hair reduction. This laser can reduce excess or unwanted hair on any part of the body. This procedure requires no anesthetic, is absolutely painless, and has no downtime. Lasers can also be used for tattoo removal. A Yag laser is the latest technology by which we can remove tattoos of any size or color on any part of the body. This procedure requires no anesthesia, and has no risk of ugly scars following surgical tattoo removal.

If there is one thing that men and women dread the most, it is hair loss and hair fall problems. In the last decade or so, the number of young men and women suffering from severe hair loss is quite alarming. The hair fall, which may be an outcome of stress, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, genetics, medical conditions, unhealthy habits, poor diet or lack of a proper hair care routine, can make life miserable and embarrassing. People try out every possible treatment to deal with the problem. In this regard, the PRP or the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy comes as a revelation.
The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a path-breaking, nonsurgical and natural option that treats the conditions of severe hair loss through hair, scalp, and skin simulations, as per the requirements. The procedure for PRP are as follows:
- The plasma contains the platelets. The platelets are important as they not only heal but also helps in regeneration of the damaged tissues.
- The first step involves extracting the blood of the person undergoing the PRP Therapy.
- Next step is the centrifugation step. Centrifugation helps to obtain the platelet rich plasma (which gets separated from the blood during the centrifugation process).
- The patients are given anesthesia at the scalp (mainly the nerves) to ease the pain.
- The platelet rich plasma is then carefully injected into the scalp of the patient to initiate the hair restoration.
The PRP therapy channelizes on the fact that the growth factors present in the platelet rich plasma will act as a catalyst, triggering the stimulation and growth of the hair follicles
Some of the growth factors that help in the hair restoration are as follows
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (responsible for the formation of blood vessels).
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (triggers the growth of blood vessels along with cell replication as well as the formation of the skin).
- Epidermal Growth Factor (involved in the formation of blood vessels and collagen along with the growth and differentiation of the cell).
- Insulin Like Growth Factor (this growth factor is mainly involved in the regulation of the normal cell physiology).
For better and effective results, the therapy is repeated at every 3 - 4 months interval.
- As impressive and fruitful as it may sound, the PRP Therapy is a big no for people dealing with certain medical conditions such as cancer, platelet dysfunction syndromes, hypofibrinogenemia, severe and chronic skin problems, severe liver disorders, sepsis, hemodynamic instability, or acute and prolonged infections.
- People who are into drinking, smoking or drug abuse should also avoid the PRP Therapy.
- PRP fails to provide the desired results in the case of complete baldness.
- The PRP therapy that has benefitted many people worldwide comes with the following advantages
- PRP Therapy is non-invasive and natural with a faster recovery.
- The Therapy is less time consuming and is quite safe.
Depending on the way you look at it, a mole can be a beauty spot or a blemish. For most people, facial moles are undesired. Moles can be described as clusters of pigmented skin cells. They appear in the form of dark spots on the skin that vary in size, color and texture. Apart from the face, moles appear commonly on the arms and legs but can affect any part of the body. In most cases, moles are harmless but in some cases, they may turn precancerous and need to be removed. However, most moles are removed for only cosmetic reasons. Moles can be removed through home remedies, surgery or laser treatment.
Mole removal depends on the type, size and location of the mole. When treated with lasers, layers of the mole are removed one by one by evaporating the affected cells. This does not cause any sort of bleeding and does not disturb healthy tissues adjacent to the mole. It is also considered to be a largely pain-free procedure but you may feel a slight tingling sensation. After the laser procedure, a scab forms over the affected area which later falls off. You may also notice slight swelling and redness in the area for a few days after the procedure.
- As it is a non-invasive procedure, there are minimal chances of infection
- Multiple moles can be treated in a single session
- Laser beams can reach parts of the face, nose and ears that may be difficult to reach through other procedures.
- There are minimal disturbance and injury to the adjacent healthy tissues
- Healing is much faster than with other procedures
- There is a very low chance of scarring
However, one of the biggest disadvantages of laser therapy is that it can only be used to treat surface moles as the laser beam cannot penetrate deep into the skin. Also, laser treatment, if not recommended in cases where the mole may be considered precancerous as the laser beam will destroy the mole leaving nothing that can be used for a biopsy. Lasers are also seldom used to treat large moles or birthmarks. The cost of removing a mole with laser treatment depends on the size, location and number of moles. In some cases, more than one session may be required and this too could influence the cost of the procedure. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
Hair Loss Male Pattern Balding or Androgenic Alopecia is a rising concern. Upto 40% of men lose 40% of their hair even before they reach 35 years of age. That’s staggering! But, fortunately, we now have the technology to counter it. Let us first understand the main types of hair loss.
Hair loss is widely categorized into two types - Scarring and Non-Scarring
Non-scarring hair loss is reversible and scarring hair loss isn’t. Each category has multiple causes that manifest in many different ways. And it’s very important to identify exactly what the underlying issue may be. A professional diagnosis is required by certified Dermato-Trichologists. Absolutely no treatment should be administered without a thorough understanding of an individual’s medical and genetic history.
Depending on severity, there are three unique processes to treat hair loss. Early stages of Hair loss can be easily managed with a strong foundation of medical therapy. Appropriate oral & topical medicines are administered to reduce hair fall and encourage hair thickening. This is the base of our process and depending on results, can be combined with other treatments.
The next logical treatment to enhance regrowth is PRP or Plasma Rich Platelet Treatment. This is a highly successful, and not to mention, natural way to boost hair growth. Combined with medical therapy, PRP yeilds exceptional results. Finally, there is an option of hair transplants which ensures hair regrowth when there is more than 40-50% root loss or receding hairline.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
PRP is a novel non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the good cells from your own blood and injects them directly back into the area where it is needed. PRP involves using your own cells that are not modified or changed, and it will not be rejected by your immune system.
How does PRP work?
PRP contains special cells called Platelets, which release plenty of rich growth factors that can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle and promote active growth phase.
How is PRP performed?
Blood is drawn as though you are having routine blood testing with utmost care. The blood is spun in a centrifuge machine and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. We prepare high quality PRP by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration with our unique well researched protocol. The PRP is then injected with very fine needled syringes into the balding areas with very minimal discomfort. The Procedure is a lunch time session, you can walk out of the session without any downtime. The sessions are performed every 1-3 months, 6-8 sessions based on requirement according to the individual case and maintenance sessions are planned accordingly. Results are noticeable in 2-6 months from starting the treatment.
What is the cost involved?
PRP varies from clinic-to-clinic, patient-to-patient. The price is also largely dependent on the number of sitting required to strengthen the follicles.
