Patient Review Highlights
I find that at my age my skin has become a little wrinkled. On consultation with doctor sejal, she suggested a Ultrasound Skin Tightening. Very simple procedure. Has been only one month since procedure and I find there is some improvement. Doctor has said that the results will come in three months. I am very hopeful by the way full marks to doctor sejals staff for keeping me confortable.
Dr Sejal is a pretty great person. She was very caring and listened to everything I had to say. She suggested dual process of microneedling and chemical peels for Acne Scar Treatment. She used something called derma roller on my scars and then followed it with chemical peel. It has been two sessions and i find substantial improvement. I look forward to final results.
I had a birth mark which had been bothering me for a very long time. Doctor sejal recommended a laser skin mark removal treatment few sessions with skin laser. She explained how it works and how it is very safe. After two seatings I find that the skin mark is now getting very light and I hope it will go away. thank you doctor sejal.
I have tried laser hair removal before with two other clinics and have never been satisfied with the results. This is one time when I think the results are truly showing. They have a pretty good machine and good staff. But the best thing is the personal attention from doctor sejal. Appreciate her for her patience. Keep it up.
dr. sejal is more of my counsellor than my skin specialist. Her patience and professionalism is amazing. I have been under her care for three months now and she has recommended treatments which are truly showing on my skin. I have tried chemical peels with her and laser hair removal and all has been good so far.
I always think my face skin was dull. I approached doctor sejal after lot of thinking. She is a very good and patient doctor. She suggested a simple procedure called skin cleanup and abrasion. Then they applied some mask and skin serum. Very good results. i am exteremely happy. my family also finds good difference.
Visited INURSKN clinic for pigmentation on my skin. The doctor recommended some medical creams first followed by chemical peels and laser skin toning. Now with only a few sessions I find that there is a lot of difference in my skin. This is definitely the right place to go to for skin problems.
Being an upcoming model, budget and skincare, both are equally important for me. At inurskn, I got all my skin treatment sorted by Dr. Sejal Saheta at affordable rates. I would totally recommend inurskn to anyone who wants good skin without burning a hole in the pocket.
I had developed a lot of skin tags over the last few years. It had started affecting my looks. Doctor Sejal explained that there is nothing wrong with it and carried out a minor surgery process to remove these tags. Now my skin is fully healed. I am fully satisfied.
Doctor sejal is extremely approachable and put my mom at ease almost instantly. My mom suffers from eczema where patches of her skin go extremely dry. Treatment by the doctor is making a huge difference in my mom’s life. I would recommend her without any fear.
I trust doctor sejal because of the past experience with skin treatment she had done for me. Now she recommended skin toning with laser and I find that there is instant change in my skin tone. It looks very even and face is glowing. Very good value for money.
Most doctors tell us that we need certain treatments . Inurskn is different. Here, Dr.Sejal Saheta I was recommended only those treatments that I really needed and nothing extra or expensive. I am very happy with my decision of choosing inurskn.
Had some skin rashes the doctor said was a minor fungal infection. She was so confident that she did not even ask me to come back for follow up. And actually the infection went away in few days. Excellent doctor to the point and professional.
After going through her reviews, I went to doctor Sejal for rashes that my baby suffers from. I found her extremely patient with me and my child and the rashes also went away very soon. Very good experience.
An extremely patient doctor. The clinic itself is very well equipped with all kinds of machines. I have been getting good results and am certain there will be a substantial reduction in my scarring.
Damage free and silky hair felt like a ream until I met Dr. Sejal Saheta at inurskn. The treatment that they planned out for me showed excellent results and my hair has never felt this gorgeous.
The treatment that I took at inurskn from Dr. Sejal Saheta for my hair had amazing results on my hair. I have tried multiple remedies for my hair loss issues but inurskn has helped me the most.
I find the doctor to be honest in her approach to the situation. She suggested simple solutions for my wrinkles and lines. I liked the fact that she did not push me to do advanced procedures.
I had gone to doctor sejal for PRP Therapy. But she insited that I first try the more simple solutions like application of medicine on my scalp. Very honest doctor. Excellent clinic also.
Loved the instant results of laser toning on my skin. Much better that regular facial. Would like them to improve on their appointment scheduling. That said will definitely be going back.
Aging of the skin is a natural process that affects all individuals with increasing age. It manifests itself in the form of skin wrinkling, sagging, discoloration and other visible effects. Such changes become more apparent as soon as one reaches late thirties or early forties but early onsets are now very common too, which can be caused by a number of factors.
Damage due to sun exposure is the primary cause of skin aging. It especially affects those who have lighter or fairer skin as the low melanin content in their skin makes it more prone to damage and aging.
Although skin aging cannot be entirely stopped or reversed, the process can be slowed down to prevent its early onset.
There are many ways of doing so through some simple lifestyle modifications such as the following:
1. Avoid sun exposure
This is the most basic way of reducing the rate of skin aging and slowing down the process. While going out in the day cannot always be avoided, it is important to keep the skin covered with clothing, hats and sunglasses.
2. Always wear sunscreen
This provides protection from the harmful rays of the sun (known as UVA and UVB). Making a habit of constantly applying sunscreen on all exposed parts of skin plays an important role in preventing skin aging. It is also necessary to use the right products, which should have an SPF rating or 30 or more.
3. Eat healthy
Having a nutritious balanced diet can make a tremendous positive impact on your skin. Consumption of food items that are rich in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients is essential. It is also important to drink lots of water and fluids to stay hydrated. Junk food and sugary drinks should be avoided as it negatively affects skin health.
4. Exercise regularly
Keeping fit through regular workouts and exercise improves the circulation of blood in the body and consequently, the supply of blood and oxygen to the skin. This keeps the skin healthy and young and prevents the early onset of wrinkling and aging.
There are several other ways of preventing skin aging such as not smoking, avoiding using too many products and cosmetics, getting enough sleep, and always keeping skin cleansed and moisturized. Following these simple ways can effectively make your skin look and feel younger and slow down the aging process.
Scabies is a skin condition that causes the skin to itch. It is caused by a tiny burrowing mite, which is called Sarcoptes scabei. The presence of the mite in the burrowed areas causes intense itching, especially at night. This a contagious condition which can quickly spread through physical contact in places like nursing homes, schools, prisons etc. Scabies is easily treatable by applying lotions to the skin that may kill the mite. Yet, one may still experience itching for several weeks.
The eight legged mite that causes the condition is microscopic. The female mite burrows just beneath the skin and makes a tunnel where it deposits eggs. These eggs hatch, mature and spread to the other areas of the skin or to the skin of other people. The body's allergic reaction to the mites, their eggs and wastes causes the itching.
Some of the symptoms of the condition are severe itching, narrow irregular burrow tracks which look like blisters or bumps on your skin. The burrow tracks generally appear in the folds of the skin. The common sites of the condition are between the fingers, armpits, around the waist, soles of your feet, knees, shoulder blades etc.
Some of the complications of the condition are:
1. Vigorous scratching which can break your skin and can cause a secondary infection such as impetigo. This superficial skin infection is usually caused by the staphylococci bacteria.
2. Severe scratching can also lead to damaged and reddened skin which in severe cases can start to bleed.
Crusted scabies, also known as Norwegian scabies is a severe form of the condition which affects certain high risks group such as:
1. People with chronic medical conditions such as HIV/Aids or chronic leukemia
2. Older people in nursing homes
3. People who are very ill
There are so many reasons people get inked. For some, a tattoo is a form of expression for other, a reminder of incidents and people. Since a tattoo is permanent, it needs to be carefully thought about. Today, you may think having your girlfriend's name inked onto your skin is a way of declaring your love but what if tomorrow, you break up. Ex lovers names are probably the most common tattoos that people ask to be removed. Yes, tattoos can be removed but it isn't as easy as it sounds.
What makes a tattoo permanent is the depth the ink permeates to. Unlike writing on your skin with a pen, ink in a permanent tattoo is placed in the dermis. This layer of skin lies under the epidermis and cannot be easily accessed. Thus using a cream or ointment will not help you remove a permanent tattoo. It may help bleach the pigment slightly but will scar your skin leaving the area looking worse than it was before. Using an acid to remove tattoos is also not advisable as this will scar the skin.
The only way to effectively remove a tattoo without scarring is with laser treatment. The laser penetrates the skin and breaks up the ink particles. This makes the body's immune system recognize the ink as alien elements and removes them through the lymphatic system. This leaves the rest of your skin undamaged. Laser treatment to remove a tattoo is not a onetime procedure and may need to be repeated a number of times depending on the number of colours, size of tattoo and quality of ink used.
A single laser cannot be used to treat all the colours in your tattoo. Lasers of different wavelengths are used to remove different colours. Thus, the more colours in a tattoo, the longer it will take to be removed. In some cases, even with laser treatment, the tattoo cannot be completely removed and a shadow may remain. Fluorescent colours are the most difficult to remove. Laser treatment can also be used on any skin colour though it may take a few extra sessions to remove tattoos on dark skin. The location of your tattoos also plays a great role in determining how easy it will be to remove.
In most cases, removing a tattoo takes 5-12 laser treatment sessions. This can take from 6 to 12 months as the dermatologist will probably ask you to wait a month between sittings. Each laser treatment session is expensive and hence removing a tattoo is much more expensive than getting one. Hence, think before you ink.
All drugs carry within themselves the potential to treat and to harm. Side-effects of medicines are a common phenomenon, with variation in the intensities. Sometimes they are minor and do not require medications; however at other times they may require urgent attention and treatment.
1. Itches and rashes
Sometimes your body may be allergic to certain type of medications. If these drugs are taken by you then the immune system treats them as foreign invasions and triggers a reaction against them. In certain cases, on consuming a drug that your body is allergic to, a kind of white blood cells called T cells expand. Itches, rashes on the skin are common repercussions in such a scenario.
2. Swelling of the face and the throat
Often it happens that, on being administered a medicine or an injection, you may experience severe swelling of face and throat. This is an extreme case of medicinal side-effect and is commonly known as anaphylaxis. This must be immediately treated and brought to the notice of a trained doctor.
This is also an important potential side-effect of a drug. On being administered a drug, you may experience an erosion on the surface of lips and eyes as a reaction against it. Immediate treatment and a visit to a doctor are imperative if you experience these symptoms.
5. Flushing and itching
You may suffer from symptoms of flushing and itching as a possible side-effect of the intravenous dyes that are used in the X-rays.
Though most may not admit, all women have hair on their face and body. It is often masked by home remedies or clever make up tricks or frequent visits to the beauty salon. If you see a sudden spike in coarse or dark hair, especially on your face, it can be an embarrassing social condition. Here are some insights into the condition and what you can do to get rid of it.
Blame it on your hormones:
In most cases, you can easily blame this condition on your hormones. Male hormones called androgens are responsible for the development of certain 'manly' features like deepening of voice or production of sperm. And the one hormone behind all this is called testosterone.
But women produce testosterone too- albeit in smaller quantities. If, for some reason, this hormone's level increases in women, it leads to increased sex drive, irregular menstrual cycle and yes, excessive facial and body hair.
One of the main causes of high levels of male sex hormones in premenopausal women is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition which causes cysts to grow around the edge of the ovaries (the organs which produce eggs and sex hormones). PCOS also results in excessive hair growth, acne and weight gain.
Some women are stuck with this condition in the post menopause stage too, when the hormonal imbalance fails to rectify itself after menopause has passed.
Besides blaming it all on the hormones, here are some other causes you can explore:
a) Being obese (weight gain is a side effect of PCOS too, so this is a slightly tricky one)
b) Side effects from blood pressure medication
c) Hereditary condition: Blame your genes
d) Cushing's Syndrome or Acromegaly - rare hormonal disorders
e) An Ovarian tumor
Usually, cosmetic remedies are enough to get rid of unwanted or excess hair. So you may not have to go out of your way to handle this problem unless you have a special case. Most cases can be treated with
a) Shaving: Not the most womanly thing to do, but it is quick and easy. Mind the stubble between the shaves
b) Waxing: This is a pretty much standard procedure
c) Bleaching: Can work for areas you don't want to shave
d) Hair removal creams: Try and test out to see which one suits you
e) Laser treatment: A powerful beam of single color light is used to destroy the hair from its root
Skin cancer is a condition with abnormal and cancerous skin growths. This often develops due to the over exposure of skin to the rays of the sun. The three main types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Skin cancer affects those areas of skin which remains sun-exposed including ears, neck, chest, scalp, lips, face, hands, arm and legs. It can also develop on those areas of skin that are not exposed to sunlight like beneath toenails or fingernails, on palms and on genital area.
Here are some of the factors which increase your risks of getting skin cancer:
1. Fair complexion: Low levels of the pigment melanin in skin causes fair complexion. Fair- skinned individuals who have a history of hazel or blue eyes, repeated sunburns and people who have red or blond hair are highly susceptible to developing this form of cancer. Less pigment in skin makes an individual more vulnerable to skin damage from harmful UV radiation.
2. Excessive sun exposure: Exposure to the sun may lead to the development of skin cancer, if you don't protect your skin by sunscreen and clothing. Tanning beds and lamps may also increase the risk of developing this type of skin cancer.
3. High-altitude places: The exposure to sunlight is more intense in areas of high altitude and near the equator. Living at higher elevation also makes you more vulnerable to radiation because the sunlight is strongest there.
4. Moles: People with abnormal moles are at a higher risk of developing skin cancer. These moles are irregular in shape and are larger than normal moles.
5. Precancerous skin lesions: Your risk of developing skin cancer increases if you have skin lesion. These are scaly and rough patches that range from brown to dark pink in color. The most commonly affected areas are head, hands and face of fair-skinned people.
6. Weak immune system: Weak immune system caused by HIV or AIDS and immunosuppressant drugs that you take after an organ transplant may increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
Mr Sun – Mr Golden Sun – Don’t Shine Down on Me!
It has been taught to us right from the time we were little toddlers that being out in the sun is great for us. And it is partially true that moderate sun exposure is great for health. From being a great source for generating vitamin D in our body… to generating an overall sense of wellness when we are outdoor in the sun.
However we do easily forget that sun is a very powerful energy source and the energy it delivers in the form if UV rays tends to seriously affect our skin. UV rays (ultra violet rays) are energy rays from the sun which are not visible to us and yet constitute a huge amount of energy that our body is exposed to.
UV rays are also of two types – the UVA rays which affect the deeper layers of the skin and the UVB rays which affect the superficial layers of the skin.
Is sun really the big bad monster?
Well the effects of sun exposure are far reaching on our skin. Here are some of them. I would like you to decide.
- Tanning – This the most basic effect in which case the skin develops pigmented patches on the sun exposed areas.
- Sun Burn – Prolonged exposure to sun often creates itchy red patches on the skin with blistering or peeling of skin.
- Freckles & Lentigenes – These are tiny red to brown spots that form on sun exposed areas.
- Melasma – These are brownish patches seen on cheeks, nose and forehead.
- Premature ageing – Ageing of skin is caused by damage or reduction in the collagen and elastin under the skin. This results in fine lines and wrinkles. UV rays directly affect the collagen and elastin levels.
- Allergic reactions – Although rare these are seen on the sun exposed area of the skin as tiny red or skin coloured patches.
- Thinning of skin and capillaries – In this case the blood vessels under the skin become more prominent.
- Skin cancer – It is seen more in fair skin individuals with a positive family history. Sun exposure is a definite associated cause for the same.
OK now how do we ward off the monster?
Well as always prevention is better than cure and hence the focus always needs to be on reducing sun exposure by all possible ways.
- Cover your body
There is no substitute for the simplicity of covering up your body when out in the sun. Remember the following
- Full Length Clothes
- Caps and Hats
- Sun Glasses
- Use Umbrellas
1.For exposed areas: Use a Sun Screen
Sun screens are the best source of protection for exposed areas. Apply sun screen before leaving from home and refresh it every four to five hours if out in the sun continuously.
In selection of sun screen although the SPF value is important it is not the only criteria. A sun screen with SPF value greater that 15 is adequate. Most sunscreens are broad spectrum sun screens and protect against UV-A and UV-B rays.
Note that in recent times water proof sun screens are also available which can be used when going swimming or during rains. (Yes sunscreens are advised even during rains!)
The biggest myth about sun screens is that they are not safe to use on a daily basis. This is incorrect and as a matter of fact they are safe for children too.
But I already have sun damage. Can I reverse it?
If you find your skin showing any of the effects mentioned above. Please get in touch with a dermatologist. The doctor will treat the sun damaged skin with oral and topical medications.
Also it is interesting to note that quite a few signs of sun damage like pigmentation and the unevenness in skin tone can be handled by a trained dermatologist with some procedures like:
- Chemical Peels – These are medications which work on controlled damage of the old skin and help in growth of fresh skin.
- Laser Skin Toning and De-tanning – Lasers work by selectively affecting the pigmented area of the skin. Laser exposure results in lightening of skin and also evening out the skin overall.
- Skin Polishing – Skin polishing again works by controlled abrasion of the old damaged skin and stimulating fresh skin growth.
- Skin Rejuvenation with Iontophoresis – Iontophoresis is a mechanism by which the dermatologist uses the power of electrical ions to carry medication into the deeper layers of the skin.
- Anti-Ageing treatments – Sometimes the damage to skin in the form of wrinkles and lines is near permanent. This can be helped by means of using botox and fillers.
As they say, it always pays to be in the know. I believe that it makes perfect sense for all individuals to be well informed on the single most common skin infection they will ever come across. Ringworm.
So where’s the worm?
Well in reality Ringworm is not caused by a worm. It is a misnomer; Ringworm is actually a fungal infection. It is also called tinea.
Hey, I thought ringworm only affects children…
Well unfortunately; you would be wrong. Ringworm can affect practically anyone at any point in their life. It is a highly contagious disease that can spread from one part of the body to another and also from one person to another. There are some groups which are at higher risk of contacting the infection like children, athletes and pet lovers, but what is important to know is that it spreads primarily by contact with the infected person or animal and by sharing of objects like clothes, bedding, towels etc.
So what does it look like? What happens with it? Where do I spot it?
Ringworm presents as red itchy patches in the form of rings in which the centre is clear and the borders are active (red in colour). It is accompanied by intense itching, so much so that it affects routine life and even sleep.
Although it is most commonly seen on closed areas like groin, buttocks and under arms, it can occur on any part of the body including but not limited to hands feet, scalp, nails and stomach.
When it occurs on groin, it is called jock itch. When it occurs on feet it is called athlete’s foot.
Well on an everyday level we are all exposed to various bacteria, fungus and viruses. The fungus that causes Ringworm flourishes in a hot and humid environment and we are after all in India.
Close contact sports or activities like wrestling, contact with infected pets are typically responsible for Ringworm infections.
Ok, so what should I do if I get Ringworm?
Well the first thing to know about Ringworm is what not to do.
- Do not reach for that itching cream you have seen advertised. Do not ask a chemist to prescribe a cream. Most over the counter creams only supress the itching and rashes temporarily without eradicating the fungus. Hence the infection bounces back on stopping the usage of the creams.
- Quite a few OTC creams often tend to have a combination of various drugs which can harm the situation more than help it.
- Please do not use home remedies. I have come across people applying garlic, turmeric, vinegar, oil etc… These are great for cooking, let’s leave them in the kitchen.
- Then there is ‘Sapat Lotion’, this can seriously harm the affected area. It often burns the skin but fails to affect the infection.
How is it treated?
Visit a dermatologist. Do not self-medicate. The treatment will include oral and topical anti-fungal medication. And it will include medication that can control the itching.
Ha! I have been through it, I am not getting it again.
Well unfortunately it’s not true. The infection can recur due to external factors. It is best to know how to prevent it. Here are some thoughts.
- Stay dry
- Dry the skin completely after bathing.
- Do not wear damp clothes.
- Do not wear clothes on wet body
- Wear loose clothing
- Avoid sharing clothes, towels, napkins etc.
- If you have pets, on any sign of infection in the pet get the same treated immediately.
- Bathe immediately after exercise or change clothes after swimming
- In case you have an infected person in the family, wash the clothes and linen of the infected person separately.
The word 'acne' is Greek in origin, which means'the highest point'. Unfortunately the condition causes more of ‘low points’ in people who suffer from it.
The Great Indian Jugaad does not work.
Almost – anyone & everyone – will go through this condition at some point in their life. And being a wide spread condition there are enough myths associated with it.
In my career I have come across crazy beliefs ranging from ‘irregular bowel movements’ to intake of ‘heat causing foods like mango fruit’ to consumption of ‘dairy products’ being blamed for acne. And of course every ‘ma’ and ‘dadi-ma’ have a ‘ghar-ka-nuska’(home remedy) for it, from applying ‘multani-mitti’ (mud / clay) to applying garlic.
Unfortunately not a lot of these ‘reasons’ and ‘solutions’are based on science and facts and in each of these case I have seen the patient’s condition being aggravated by these crazy ideas.
So what’s the truth?
Acne is dominantly hormonal in nature and is caused by change in hormones which cause an increase in production of sebum (oil).This sebum along with dead skin cells blocks hair follicles. This environment is great for naturally occurring bacteria in skin to multiply, causing inflammation and acne.
Acne is primarily seen in adolescents; but can occur between 12 to 45 years of age. It is sometimes even seen in neonates (babies) due to circulating maternal hormones. It can get aggravated by certain conditions like
b. Hot and humid environment
c. Hormonal Imbalance Conditions
d. Application of oil or oil based products
e. Certain oral medications
Acne is commonly seen on face, chest, back and upper arms.
ShortTerm and Long Term Effects:
In addition to an immediate and obvious deterioration in cosmetic appearance, cystic and hard acne leaves behind scars and marks. Even picking or squeezing of acne causes more marks and scarring. I have seen that this deterioration in cosmetic appearance often leads to a lower self esteem and lack of confidence in young patients.
So what do I do?
Here are some helpful dos and donts:
Wash your face twice a day
Remove make up before sleeping
Don’t scrub or rub the face
Don’t squeeze the acne
Don’t apply oil on face or scalp
Don’t use home remedies or over the counter medicines.
7 Habits of Effective Skin Care
Remember these 7 Habits to have a healthy and glowing skin:
- Wash Up : It is important to keep your skin clean with simple washing up of exposed parts of the body a few times a day. However never over-do it and never scrub your skin. Skin is a delicate organ and needs gentle cleansing. Use soaps and cleansers which are mild and do not leave your skin feeling dry.
- Moisturize : You can never over-do this. Do not count the number of times you apply a moisturizer, the idea is to keep your skin healthy and soft. There is only one rule in moisturizers : Do not use oil. Oils do not act the same way moisturizing creams do. Also all reputed brands of moisturizers are safe and there is no substantial difference between expensive and in-expensive moisturizing creams.
- Sun Protection : Exposure to moderate sunlight has its health benefits, however prolonged exposure can cause substantial damage to the skin. Remember to always protect yourself adequately when going out in the sun. Always wear sunscreen when going out into the sun as it guards you from the harmful UV Rays of the sun. SPF factor of a sunscreen is a number to look at, higher the better, however it is not the only factor. As long as the sunscreen is from a reputed company it should be safe to use.
- Diet : A good healthy diet is all that matters. Get adequate proteins, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates from your food and of-course hydrate with water as needed. Things that do not matter are the myths about foods that produce ‘heat’ in the body. Non-Vegetarian and Sugary foods are not your skin’s enemy, however like all things in life consume all foods in moderation.
- Exercise : Moderate exercise of your choice on a daily basis is proven to release ‘endorphins’ in your body and also it helps in increasing the blood circulation. These factors definitely affect the health of your skin and keep you looking young.
- Don’t Stress: Stress is now medically proven to affect your health adversely. It is also an established fact that stress causes aggravation of skin ailments and also makes you look older !
- Catch your ZZZs : Sleep is a big factor in overall health and also the health of your skin. In addition to getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep also try establishing consistency in the time you go to bed and wake up. Sleep increases collagen in your skin, the component that helps keep your skin looking younger.
The 8th Habit : Know when you need a doctor. Never ever ignore any skin ailment, a small thing today can blow out of proportion tomorrow. Use your sensibilities and approach a dermatologist whenever in doubt.
