Hi, I am Dr Deepa Kanchankoti. I have been practising dermatologist, cosmetologist and trichologist in Kandivali, Mumbai since last 17 years. Today I am going to speak about the crowning glory- balding in men.

Whenever a male patient comes to us for reasons of balding, we need to understand or rather classify whether it is localized or it is generalized. The localized balding alopecia is called as alopecia areata and it is much different from the generalized hair loss. Generalized hair loss is again divided into scarring alopecia or non scarring alopecia. Scarring alopecia we have to find out whether it is because of an internal problem in the system or it is a disease on the scalp. Amongst the non scarring alopecia whether it is relive effluvium which is more of stress-related or other problems like diet medicines some local applications etc or it is hormone induced. The hormone induced alopecia in men also known as androgenetic alopecia is the most common problem and here we are going to dispel some of the myths.

What happens is this is the length of the hair and the root is here which is getting its blood supply from the scalp. Within over a period of time this length goes on reducing smaller and smaller and smaller to a very fine non visible hair. So this terminal long thick deep rooted hair converted into a very fine non-visible hair. This process is called as miniaturization and more often what patient calls as hair loss is nothing but hair miniaturization.

Why does this happen?

This happens because at the root of the hair there is an enzyme which causes certain conversion of hormones and this is under the influence of these hormones and more so this is genetically predetermined. Now if one works prevention from this type of miniaturization then there are medicines available which can stop the activity of this enzyme at the root of the hair so long as the medicines are being consumed the enzyme does not act and the miniaturization does not happen but if you stop taking the medicine the miniaturization process stops. There is a myth that people have the understanding if they stop taking the medicine there is more hair loss. There is not more hair loss.

What has been stopped so far it starts happening again. Men usually find that initially they have a v shaped balding which happens during the teenage. This goes on increasing with a deeper V. Over a period of time a bald patch starts appearing in this area and then at the vertex the hair killing happens and the area widens and this area completely balds. So according to the Hamilton grading what starts is great to androgenetic alopecia goes on to increasing and becoming grade 3,4,5,6,7 where in you have a small strip of hair behind and all the hair are lost. So whenever you start the medicine the process of miniatures, medicines stops or gets delayed and if you stop taking the medicines the process starts again. Sometimes patients have this query I don't want to take medicines forever.

Can I go for hair transplant?

That is aan excellent solution where the Velice hair cannot be completely transformed into a terminal hair. Again the hair which is removed from the back of the scalp called as the donor area is transplanted into the front cay area where these hair starts growing here.

Is that a solution for not taking the oral medication?

Probably one needs to look into this. His hair will not grow because the transplant happened and the hair restore is it the glory but this hair is still under the influence of hormones so over a period of time this starts balding again. If one needs to maintain the hair then they must continue taking the medicines inspite of the transplantation because otherwise this hair will remain And this hair will go leading to unnatural balding. So one must always while getting the treatment for hair loss have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved? What can't be achieved? Whether they need to or area they prepared for taking forever or they are happy with natural balding.

Here is cause,symptoms and treatments of Pigmentation

Hi, I am Dr. Deepa Kanchanl practicing Dermatologist and Cosmetologist from Mumbai since the last sixteen years. Today I would like to talk on an important topic which is of aesthetic importance to a lot many people that is Pigmentation. Pigmentation on the skin can come because of excessive production of melanin by the cells of the skin. Normally there is increase in production of melanin by stimulation of the cells by ultraviolet rays coming from sunlight or other sources. This can lead to tanning that is generalised increase in the pigmentation or it can be patchy skin but other than ultraviolet rays there can be other reasons for increase in pigmentation like deposition of certain proteins under the skin, drug reaction or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, post burns or chemical injuries, acne or any other liaison appearing on the skin.

So, when you want to get rid of pigmentation finding of the most appropriate cream depending upon the cause is very important. Generally, it is seen that people end up using creams suggested by their friends or somebody who have used it and have got good results but they don’t know what are the contents and how each cream acts and what are the side effects and eventually end up using the cream in excessive quantity for a long period of time. This can lead to a lot of side effects like increase of hair on the skin or the thinning or redness of skin, pimples or paradoxically increase in the pigmentation on the skin, this is known an Ochronosis which occurs because of deposition of the same depigmenting cream underneath the skin this can be very difficult to treat or rather impossible to treat.

So it is my suggestion that whenever you want to get rid of pigmentation it is important to analyse the cause of it and how the cause can be removed, what protection can be taken so that there is no further increase in the pigmentation and have a realistic expectation as to how pigmentation can go away as people generally are looking for a quick fix reply as to how this can disappear completely and forever without coming back again. People are not bothered about protection, whereas protection is the key in pigmentation, so protection from the UV rays by application of sunscreen or protection with a cloth or avoidance of sunlight in the peak sun hours is very important. How to use the sunscreen, how much quantity and for what duration to be applied? All these play a very important role.

So protect more than curing for further information you can contact on lybrate.com. Thank you.

Permanent hair removal is done by laser or ipl. One needs to check your hormonal levels, extent of involvement. Please do hormonal assay after proper consultation. Then you can decide when you can do and how much time it may take. Regards.

Dandruff - When Should You Visit a Dermatologist

Dandruff - When Should You Visit a Dermatologist

Dandruff is a common chronic scalp condition marked by flaking of the skin on your scalp. Dandruff isn't contagious or serious. But it can be embarrassing and sometimes difficult to treat.

Causes of Dandruff-

Your skin constantly produces new skin cells and sheds old cells to stay healthy. Dandruff can occur when this cycle of skin renewal speeds up.

This leads to patches of dead skin forming on the scalp that comes away into the hair. The main causes of flaky scalp can be due to:

  1. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis – A common skin condition associated with an overgrowth of yeast on the skin, which can cause the scalp, face and other areas of the body to become scaly, itchy and red.
  2. Tinea Capitis – A fungal infection of the scalp, also called scalp ringworm.
  3. Eczema – A common skin condition that causes the skin to become dry, red, flaky and very itchy
  4. Allergic Contact Dermatitis – a reaction to products used on the scalp, such as hair dye, hairspray, hair gel or mousse
  5. Psoriasis – A skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales

Dandruff isn't caused by poor hygiene, although it may be more obvious if you don't wash your hair regularly. Stress and cold weather may also make it worse.

Treatments for Dandruff-

The main treatment for dandruff is anti-dandruff shampoo. There are a number of types available to buy from supermarkets or pharmacies.

Look for shampoo containing one of the following ingredients:

  1. zinc pyrithione
  2. salicylic acid
  3. selenium sulphide (or selenium sulfide)
  4. ketoconazole
  5. coal tar

Make sure you read the instructions that come with the shampoo before using it to check if it's suitable for you and see how often it should be applied. Always consult a dermatologist before taking any medication.

  1. It's particularly important to leave the shampoo into your hair for at least five minutes before washing it out.
  2. Try these shampoos for a month to see if your dandruff improves. Anti-dandruff shampoos are to be used only twice a week not daily. It can aggravate dandruff if overused. You might need to try more than one type to find one that works for you.
  3. You may be able to use the shampoo less often once your symptoms improve, but your dandruff will probably come back if you stop using it completely.

When to see your Dermatologist-

You don't usually need to see your dermatologist if you have dandruff, but it's a good idea to visit them if:

  1. you've tried anti-dandruff shampoos for at least a month and your symptoms haven't improved
  2. your dandruff is very severe or your scalp is very itchy
  3. your scalp is red or swollen
  4. you have a weakened immune system

Your dermatologist can examine your scalp to check for skin conditions that could be causing your dandruff.

Hair Transplant Procedures

MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), Diplomate of National Board (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Hair Transplant Procedures

Hair Transplant procedures are used to fill in the bald spots by removing tiny strands of hair from the regions which have thick hair growth (also called the donor region) and implanting the hair follicles on the spots that have become bald )also called the recipient region). Now-a-days, hair transplant physicians make the use of various techniques for hair transplantation. Two such primary methods are FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) and they fundamentally differ in the way your hair follicles are being extracted from the donor region.

  1. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) - The FUT process requires the removal of tiny strips of tissue from the back of your head; the spot from where the hair follicles of the donor would be extracted. The hair follicles would be collected from the strip by a team of clinical experts before they are individually transplanted to the recipient region. In many cases, especially in cases of advanced hair loss, FUT is the most favored method since it fully utilizes the scalp area to deliver results in consistency with the expectations of the patient. FUT permits a greater number of grafts to be transferred in a single session. But the FUT strip extraction may lead to the formation of narrow linear scars at the back of your head.

  2. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) - In this kind of hair transplantation, each follicular unit is removed individually from the scalp but no tissue strip is taken off. With no stitches needed and no linear scars at the site, FUE methods make healing faster, thus giving you less discomfort in comparison with the traditional FUT procedure.

The method best suited for you would depend on the quality and amount of the donor hair, the size of the thinning hair and the site of hair loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Three Chemical Peel Myths Busted

Dermatologist, Mumbai
Three Chemical Peel Myths Busted

If you have ever thought about how to rejuvenate your skin and make yourself look younger, chances are that you have heard about the chemical peel. As the name suggests, getting a chemical peel involves the application of a chemical on the skin that causes the top layer to blister and peel off. By doing this, a new layer of skin is exposed that is usually smoother than before. Chemical peels are often misunderstood and are surrounded by a number of myths.

Let's take a look at three common myths about this procedure:

  1. All chemical peels are the same: All chemical peels are definitely not same. Chemical peels can be categorized as light or superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels. A light peel removes only the top layer of skin to make your skin look brighter and reduce wrinkles. Medium depth chemical peels penetrate deeper into the skin and are used to treat sun damage and pigmentation. Deep peels are the strongest type of peels that penetrate into the dermal layers of the skin. Chemical peels also vary on the basis of the chemical used. 
  2. It involves a long recovery: Though the process itself may not take long, the recovery time depends on the type of chemical peel procedure you have undergone. A superficial peel has virtually no recovery time and can be performed even during a working day's lunch break. Medium depth peels can cause discomfort for about an hour after the procedure and can take a few days to heel. During this time, your skin may look patchy and inflamed and may feel itchy. With a deep peel, the skin may heal in 2-3 weeks, but usually remains red for a few months.  Depending on the chemical used, you may also feel unwell after a deep peel. 
  3. It is beneficial only if you have a dermatological issue: You don't need to suffer from a skin problem to undergo a chemical peel. Many women undergo a chemical peel simply to give their skin a glow and to brighten their skin. It can remove wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation while making the skin smoother and softer to touch. Along with the face, chemical peels can also be done on the neck, chest, back and arms. 

Chemical peels can do a lot for your skin as long as you choose the right peel for your skin and it is performed safely. While you can get a superficial peel at a spa, deep peels should be performed only by licensed plastic surgeons or experienced dermatologists.

Getting rashes on fungal part. What should be done & any antibiotics to be applied or taken?
Body parts where skin touches each other, body folds where sweat accumulates gives a chance for fungus to multiply. This gives rise to itching and rash, commonly seen in groin areas, under arms and belt area. Antibiotics are used against bacterial infection. In this case, keeping good body hygiene is most important. Have bath twice a day, wipe body dry, maximum cotton wear, do not repeat unwashed clothes. This will prevent further infection.

Why Do Feet Stink?

MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), Diplomate of National Board (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Why Do Feet Stink?

Why do feet stink?

Smelly feet can be a cause of great embarrassment and discomfort for anyone. Also known as bromodosis, the primary cause of smelly feet is the sweat glands in your feet. This part of the human body has more sweat glands than anywhere else in the body. Additionally, compared to sweat glands in the other parts of the body that secrete to control your body temperature when exposed to hot weather or while exercising, the sweat glands in your feet produce perspiration all the time.

When this happens, bacteria living on your skin break down the perspiration that oozes from your skin pores and a cheese-like smell is produced as the sweat gets broken down by the bacteria.

Apart from the explanation of the origin of this kind of smell, the causes that lead to you having smelly feet are:

- wearing the same footwear on a daily basis and not letting them dry

- poor hygiene habits like not washing your feet and drying them thoroughly

- changes in the body's hormones level especially during pregnancy and puberty

- too much stress

- hyperhidrosis (a condition wherein you sweat excessively)

- athlete's foot (infection of the soles of the feet and between the toes)

Hair loss can happen due to many reasons. First we need to diagnose if there is any condition in scalp or in body or in hormones that is causing the hair loss. Dry and rough hair could be hereditary or due to climate change or due to poor hair hygiene. Please wash your hair regularly, apply conditioner. Use serum in semi wet hair. All this will give shine to hair. Still, if you take good medicines for hair then it would give better results. Eat healthy, well balanced nutritious diet on time. Please send your photographs for proper assessment. Take care.

My skin colour is dark & it's look more in Summer season. Please suggest me how I can glow my skin.

MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), Diplomate of National Board (Dermatology)

My skin colour is dark & it's look more in Summer season. Please suggest me how I can glow my skin.
Dear lybrate-user, we all know how important it is to glow with healthy skin. I fully agree with you that during summer due to excessive sunlight exposure the skin turns darker. Before I prescribe anything to you, let me give some scientific insights regarding skin. People are divided into 6 different skin types based on their colour and response to sunlight from very light fair skin to very dark skin. This is called fitzpatrick classification. One cannot change the skin type with creams and tablets. Skin gets its colour from amount of melanin pigment present in it. With sunlight's uv rays (ultra violet rays) this melanin pigment increases. So you must apply a sunscreen before going out in sunlight and reapply especially if it washed away by sweat. Take additional protection with cap. Eat healthy diet to maintain the glow. There are many creams in the market to reduce the pigmentation. For any intense treatment you must visit the dermatologist personally. Assess you skin type and is not sensitive. Remember, excess application of cream will not make skin fair.
