Skin Care - Treatment, Procedure And Side Effects

What is the treatment?

There are a number of skin care treatments available today, which help individuals rejuvenate their skin to a great extent. Skin problems and aging have become quite common because of the hectic lifestyles we lead, genes and other environmental conditions. A number of different types of treatments are now available which help solve problems like wrinkles, acnes, fine lines and other skin diseases.

Quite a few skin treatments are also available to manage chronic skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Although chronic skin problems are not quite curable, their signs and symptoms can be effectively dealt with through various skin treatments.

Generally, the kind of skin treatment that one opts for depends on their skin type; be it normal, dry, combination or oily.

Here are a few effective skin care treatments -

  • Acne Blue Light Therapy- It is an effective way to treat light and even moderate acne issues.
  • Chemical peel- A great way to obtain fresh rejuvenated skin, a chemical peel effectively deals with wrinkles, sun damage, and skin pigmentation.
  • IPL photo-facial- Photo-facial helps get rid of freckles, wrinkles and deals with sun damage. It also eliminates enlarged pores and brown spots on the skin.
  • Laser skin resurfacing- It gets rid of outer skin layers that have been damaged. It also helps in effective collagen production that keeps skin healthy by strengthening it.
  • Laser skin tightening- Great for wrinkle removal.
  • Microdermabrasion- This treatment helps in reducing age spots and also removes acne scars.
  • Thermage- It effectively improves the face and neck contours.

How is the treatment done?

Every type of skin care treatment is unique and has different benefits. It is important that one knows what exactly the skin care treatment entails before undergoing it. Here is how some of the skin care treatments are performed-

  • Acne Blue Light Therapy- The therapy makes use of a blue light band to kill bacteria which cause acne. The treatment is very quick and takes about half an hour. No pain is felt when one is exposed to the blue light.
  • Chemical peel- This type of treatment uses an acid solution to deal with the outer skin layers. A solution of alpha hydroxyl acid, phenol or trichloroacetic acid is used. It is known to be one of the oldest forms of skin care procedures.
  • IPL photo-facial- The treatment generally takes about half an hour, during which pulsed light is directed towards the skin. It does not cause any discomfort or pain.
  • Laser skin resurfacing- This procedure involves the use of a laser which breaks the molecular bond of the damaged skin cells and makes skin smooth. It is also commonly known as a laser peel.
  • Laser skin tightening- This procedure also makes use of a laser to tighten the skin. The light of the laser heats the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen.
  • Microdermabrasion- During this procedure, an instrument is used to spray minute crystals on the skin surface. These crystals exfoliate the skin effectively.
  • Thermage- A non-exfoliating skin treatment, it uses heat to tighten the skin.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Those who can opt for such skin care treatments include-

  • Acne Blue Light Therapy- Individuals who have acne problems.
  • Chemical peel- Those with light skin and hair are ideal for this treatment.
  • IPL photo-facial- Individuals who have freckles, wrinkles and damaged skin can opt for this treatment.
  • Laser skin resurfacing- Individuals with non-oily elastic skin can opt for this procedure.
  • Laser skin tightening- People between 30 to 60 years of age are ideal for this treatment. Good health is also vital in this case.
  • Microdermabrasion- Adults who are healthy and suffer from minor skin issues can opt for this form of skin treatment.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

Individuals who can’t opt for such skin care treatments include-

  • Chemical peel- Individuals with dark skin and heart problem should not opt for this treatment.
  • IPL photo-facial- Dark-skinned people may face certain pigmentation problems.
  • Laser skin resurfacing and tightening- Dark skinned people and those with skin imperfections should not opt for this treatment.
  • Microdermabrasion- Individuals with diabetes, auto-immune disorders, scars, and liaisons are not good candidates.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects of skin care treatments can include allergic reactions, redness of the skin, and swelling of the skin, itchiness, or slight rashes. Some individuals also face pain and discomfort. But these side effects are only temporary and soon disappear.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Recovery from skin care procedures today is very fast. But some precautions should be taken post the treatment. One should wear sunscreen to avoid sun damage at all times. Make sure to cleanse and moisturize the skin regularly. This will help the skin to retain its smoothness and glow. Scrubbing should be avoided.

If you have opted for a chemical peel, return to your daily routine after 48 hours of the skin care treatment. This time will allow the skin to peel off completely.

How long does it take to recover?

While most skin treatments result in immediate recovery and bear quick results, laser skin treatments involve a recovery period of a few weeks, depending on the extent of the treatment undergone.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Depending on the kind of treatment one is opting for, the price ranges from Rs 3000 to Rs 70,000.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Most skin care treatments have long-term effects and benefits, but they are not necessarily permanent.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Alternative skin care treatments include natural methods which keep the skin healthy. This involves a healthy diet and regular exercise as well as adopting natural means of exfoliation. Drinking plenty of water also keeps the skin healthy and hydrated.

5 Bad Habits That Are Ruining Your Skin!

5 Bad Habits That Are Ruining Your Skin!
Following a proper skin care regime ensures a flawless skin. You cannot enjoy a beautiful, supple, flawless skin without taking good care of it or putting much effort into it. Giving energy and time into taking good care of your skin will result in soft and alluring skin. However, sometimes despite a proper skin care regime, your skin looks dull and unhealthy. This is due to the habits you have incorporated that ruin your skin as a consequence and make it look drab. Mentioned below are 5 habits which are terrible for your skin and should be stopped at once. 1. Washing your face with harsh cleansers: Most people who are prone to oily skin resulting in acne and pimples, resort towards cleansers and exfoliators to dry their skin out. While this seems like a great idea in theory, the cleaners end up removing the beneficial oils produced by the skin and destroy the skin's natural protective barrier. 2. Using products stored in jars: Skin experts and dermatologists believe that tube packaged products are much better than products stored in a jar. This is because most skin care products contain antioxidants which break down when repeatedly exposed to air and sun thus making your products less effective with every use. 3. Skimping on sleep: Apart from benefitting your mood, energy levels and metabolism, sleep also rewards you with a beautiful skin. It keeps dark circles away and makes your skin glow. Lack of sleep causes stress and generates free radicals in our skin, thus harming it. 4. Using cotton pillowcases instead of satin ones: Your collagen breaks down due to persistent pressure of your face into your pillow which is traumatic to your skin. Avoid too much friction by opting for satin pillows instead of cotton ones. Moreover, if you are prone to acne, wash your pillows every week to remove the buildup of residue that accumulates on your sheets. 5. Talking too much on the phone: Studies show that bacteria gathers on the surface of your phone which is why you must clean it every time you talk over the phone or talk to them on speaker. Phone applies pressure on your face which traps the oil and causes zits.

How To Stop Breakouts And Get Clear Skin?

How To Stop Breakouts And Get Clear Skin?
Acne is a skin condition that leads to breakouts like pimples and other eruptions on the skin, including white heads and black heads. In very severe conditions, an acne breakout may come with pus filled boils too. An acne breakout happens due to various reasons. Inflammation of an infected sebaceous gland leads to this breakout. This infection and consequent inflammation can take place due to hormonal changes, poor diet, as well as high testosterone levels and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Dirt and grime that clog the pores and dead cells that have not been washed off properly can also cause these breakouts. So what kind of skin care regimen can you have in order to prevent acne? Read on to know more. Cleaning Acne Prone Areas: You must wash the acne prone areas with soap and warm water at least twice a day. If your case has been very severe in the past, you can even use a medicated soap to wash the neck, shoulders and back as sometimes, acne spreads to these areas as well. Concentrate on the face and remember to clean it to remove dust, grime and other irritants that come from pollution. If this is not done on a regular basis, the particles can block the pores and lead to infection where the dead skin cells play a major role. Make Up: If your skin is acne prone, you can use non oily make up or avoid it on a daily basis, if you can. Non oily make up does not irritate the sebaceous glands, which can end up secreting excessive oil leading to acne breakouts. Non oily make up and skin care products are known as non comedogenics which do not clog the pores. Also, you must remember to remove your applied make up carefully before you go to bed so that the pores are clean and get a chance to breathe rather than getting infected. Further, your old make up needs to be thrown out regularly even if the products do not come with an expiry date. Invest in new make up every few months and clean your brushes regularly too. Sweat: After a particularly intense work out session or after a run, you must remember to wash you face and take a shower so that the sweat and oil is can be removed, as these lead to breakouts if they are allowed to gather on the skin's surface and enter the pores. Taking care of your skin with a proper cleaning and hydrating routine is as important is getting the right nutrition as well.

Popular Questions & Answers

I am 19 years old. I am a muslim and I wear the burkha daily when I go to clg. My skin is protected by the sun even though my skin is so dry and what to do with my skin please suggest me some tips for the healthy skin and how to get the moisture in my skin.

Dr. Udaya Nath Sahoo 93% (782 ratings)
General Physician,
Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As"per your clinical history is concerned do few natural methods like this - 1)Measure out equal parts of unprocessed honey, beeswax, and olive oil. Melt the beeswax in a small pan over low heat. Remove it from the heat and mix in the honey and then the olive oil. Apply this mixture all over your body and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then take a shower. Repeat daily or every other day. 2)Use warm water and limit bath time. Long showers or baths and hot water remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower to five to 10 minutes and use warm, not hot, water. 3)Use a humidifier. Hot, dry, indoor air can parch sensitive skin and worsen itching and flaking. A portable home humidifier or one attached to your furnace adds moisture to the air inside your home. Be sure to keep your humidifier clean to ward off bacteria and fungi. 4)Choose fabrics that are kind to your skin. Natural fibers, such as cotton and silk, allow your skin to breathe. But wool, although natural, can irritate even normal skin. Wash your clothes with detergents without dyes or perfumes, both of which can irritate your skin. Hope that helps
