Dry Skin - Know Treatment Of It!

Dry skin is a condition caused by the lack of moisture in skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are just some of the conditions which may be caused due to dry skin. Dry skin can also be very uncomfortable. The condition is mostly caused by environmental factors such as exposure to harsh weather conditions or getting soaked in hot water. 

People at risk

1.        Age
People who are older than 40 years tend to be more at risk of dry skin than people who are younger than 40.
2.        Climate
As mentioned earlier, weather conditions play a pivotal role in causing dry skin. Therefore, people who live in areas where the climate is either very hot or very cold tend to get dry skin more often than people who live in temperate climates. Low humidity is another factor which causes dry skin.
3.        Profession
Some professions, such as nursing or hairstyling requires frequent usage of hot water all through the day. 
4.        Swimming
Swimming is one of the major causes of dry skin. This is especially true in pools which have chlorine. This is because chlorine increases the itchiness of your skin.

Treatment:

1.        Lifestyle changes
Usually, lifestyle changes such as avoiding long, hot showers and putting moisturizers are good enough to make sure that dry skin goes away.
2.        Lactic acid
Creams with lactic acid and urea can be prescribed by your doctor if the dryness of your skin does not go away with just moisturizers. These creams usually tend to be over-the-counter medications.
3.        Prescription creams
Prescription creams are only given when dermatitis, psoriasis or ichthyosis have set in.
4.        Wet dressing
Wet dressings are given only when dermatitis has set in. These are mostly to help prevent infection.
5.        Oils
Oiling your body, especially with fish or flaxseed oil is especially crucial in making sure that your body does not succumb to dry skin.
6.        Hand sanitizer

Normal hand sanitizers create a drying feeling on your hand. However, dermatologist-recommended hydrating hand sanitizers allow your hands to keep their moisture. Therefore, when you are using hand  sanitizers, it is advisable to try to use hydrating ones.

How Beneficial Is Laser Skin Tightening?

How Beneficial Is Laser Skin Tightening?

Ageing is often the harshest foe to the skin. The years will take its toll on the skin’s tightness, resulting in loose saggy skin. However, there are many techniques which allow for the rejuvenation and tightening of the skin and help you get your youthful look back. Most of these are usually non-invasive or minimally-invasive and include creams, peels, dermabrasion and other such forms of treatment. One such method which has become quite popular is laser skin tightening.

What is Laser Skin Lightening?

As is evident from the name, this method uses a laser or an infrared light source of a specific wavelength to heat up the treated area. This method of treatment specifically heats up the collagen present under the skin and stimulates it to cause tightening. This treatment also encourages the growth of new collagen under the skin.

Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening:

Some of the benefits of laser skin tightening are mentioned below –

  1. It works deep beneath the skin– While most other treatments make you look younger by treating the superficial layers of skin, laser skin tightening works by stimulating the collagen under the skin and thus works from way deeper, making it a more effective treatment. It can easily correct all forms of lines on your neck, forehead, eyes, wrinkles and blemishes.

  2. Minimally invasive– There is no involvement of surgical tools and thus no incisions, stitches or even injections are used. Although the skin is heated up from beneath the surface with the help of a laser, it is still a minimally invasive procedure.

  3. Less painful– Although the lower layers of the skin are heated up, the laser mechanism allows for the top-most layer of the skin to remain cool, thus lessening the pain and discomfort faced during the procedure.

  4. Minimal downtime– Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive process and is usually done on an outpatient basis. The total downtime is quite minimal and you can resume daily activities quite quickly after the procedure.

  5. Lasts for longer– As the new collagen develops under your skin, the effects start to show in full swing in about a couple of months. You may at best need a follow up treatment to ensure that the best results are achieved. However, once the treatment is completed and the skin tightens, the effects do stay for quite a while.

How Narrow Band UVB Therapy Can Treat Skin Diseases?

How Narrow Band UVB Therapy Can Treat Skin Diseases?

Did you know that it is possible to cure different skin diseases using the light therapy? Did you also know that it can improve the condition of your skin permanently? If not, here is what all you need to know.

Phototherapy or light therapy is a treatment of the skin by exposing it to a kind of artificial ultraviolet light source, under complete medical supervision. Narrow band UVB Therapy is a common form of phototherapy effective in treating skin diseases. ‘Narrow band’ refers to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet rays, about 310 to 312 nanometers applied to the skin and is used for both whole body and small area treatment.

Conventional UVB rays techniques uses broad bands, which sometimes emitted uncontrolled light resulting in discomforts like redness, dryness, inflammation of hair roots or folliculitis etc. Narrow band UVB, on the other hand, is a safer and more effective method.

Here is how narrow band is more effective than broad band-

• Shorter duration of exposure

• Higher intensity rays

• The duration of the procedure is short

• Chances of recurrence are very low

• It is also a beneficial component of sunlight, highly fruitful for treating psoriasis.

Areas of treatment- Narrow band UVB can very effectively cure several skin diseases like-

• Psoriasis

• Chronic dermatitis or eczema

Vitiligo

Procedure- This technique needs to be repeated two to five times per week. For the whole body treatment, the patient is made to stand inside a cabinet especially designed with fluorescent tubelights. The patient stands inside after wearing googles and the rays are applied for a few seconds. Shorter bulbs are used for small areas like hands and feet. The amount of rays is sincerely monitored to prevent burns and other complications.

After-treatment results-

The skin can turn pale and pink immediately after treatment. However, after 3-4 days, your skin condition starts to heal, and eventually disappears after three weeks.

Myths Surrounding Botox And Dermal Fillers!

Dr. Ankita Pant 85% (10 ratings)
MD - Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Myths Surrounding Botox And Dermal Fillers!

Myth #1 – Botox and dermal fillers are the same treatment

Although both are injectable, the similarity ends there. Botox is a muscle relaxant that reduces wrinkles and can soften and prevent lines, aesthetically lift or drop facial structures. Whereas, dermal fillers restore volume and lift facial tissues, giving you a youthful look. They can also stabilise, reshape and contour facial structures. Dermal Fillers also last longer than Botox.

Myth #2They result in an unnatural look

Fillers are products used to replace the volume we lose in our faces as we age. If done carefully and with a good aesthetic sense, you will look rejuvenated and natural.

It is true that over correction with too much filler can result in an overly plumped out face. Carla Bruni, Madonna and Lindsay Lohan have been papped by the press with excessive cheek volume and an overly inflated appearance. As a cosmetic doctor, it is not unusual to hear“I don’t want my lips to end up looking like Anushka Sharma’s!” Many people have been put off lip filler injections because of a few disastrous procedures.

It is important to keep a sense of proportion and not to overdo it. However, when these treatments are carried out by a properly trained practitioner with an astute eye this should not happen. It is better to under-treat and add more product at a later date rather than create a false fat looking face. For best results, it is recommended that you seek out a specialist who has expertise in using fillers in the face.

Myth # 3 – It is a painful procedure

Many filler products are packaged with numbing solution mixed into them, resulting in nearly painless injections. Topical numbing ointments provide additional relief. Additionally, micro-cannulas which are blunt tipped - not sharp, like needles, can be used to enhance patient comfort.

Myth # 4 – There will be a lot of bruising or downtime

Although bruising and swelling can occur with filler injections, particularly around the eyes or mouth, it is infrequent or minimal in the hands of experienced doctors. The chances can be reduced by using cool compresses, arnica montana tablets and cream, and elevating the head of the bed.

Most of the time, bruising and/or swelling can be concealed with make-up and is not very noticeable. As a safeguard against the occasions when it may be more noticeable, we recommend that you don’t have your filler treatments performed within a week to 10 days of a major event such as a wedding

Myth # 5Once you get Botox or fillers, you must continue to have them forever

Many people believe that once you start having Botox injections or dermal fillers, your skin will sag and wrinkle more than ever before if you stop the treatments. This is not true. When the effects of Botox or fillers wear off, your skin will look exactly the same as it did before the treatment and no worse. It’s simply that most people are so happy with the results of their treatments that they continue to have them for many years to come!

Also, the frequency of maintenance is not as long as most people think. It depends on such factors as the filler being used, where it is placed, and the activity level of the person receiving the filler. Consequently, fillers may only need to be repeated every 6-8 months or as infrequently as once every 2 years depending on the above factors.

Myth # 6 – Fillers can replace a surgical facelift

While fillers add volume and can give the appearance of “looking lifted,” they cannot ever replace the results of surgery, which lifts and tightens the deeper tissues while removing excess and sagging skin. Often, in older patients with substantial drooping, a combination of surgery plus volume replacement with filler will provide optimal rejuvenation results.

Myth #7It is okay to shop around for the cheapest price.. It’s just a few standard injections…ANYONE can do them..

The most important aspect of these treatments the skill, talent, aesthetic sense, and expertise of the practitioner administering the filler. There are many physicians, nurses, and dentists that will offer fillers to their patients, often at very low costs, as a source of extra income. Many have little training, sometimes just having taken a weekend course.

This process is similar to commissioning a beautiful piece of art. The type of paint or clay being used is secondary. What is paramount is the skill and vision of the artist. So rather than shop for prices, one should look for an experienced injector who has expertise and training in facial aesthetics and a vision attuned to one’s own aesthetic sense.

Myth # 8Any filler can be placed anywhere – they are all the same

Not all fillers are the same, nor can they be placed in any location. Certain fillers should be avoided around the eyes and lips. Juvederm®, for example, attracts water, and therefore is not ideal to use close to the eyes where the skin is thin.

Myth # 9Botox and Filler treatments are just for women

Although cosmetic injectables are more commonly requested by females, there has been a significant increase amongst men in recent times. The most commonly requested female procedures are brow lifts, cheek and lip enhancement, whilst in gents, hyperhidrosis, frown lines and chin re-shaping rank amongst the top few. Interestingly, male customers often advertise it more than their female counterparts, with studies showing only 12% of women confessing to having treatments, compared to a whopping 74% of men!

Myth # 10Botox treatments are toxic and dangerous

With nearly 20 years of use for a range of different conditions, Botox has a long and well-established safety history. More than 16 million treatments have been performed since it was first introduced in the marketplace. No long term side effects have ever been seen in users of the treatments even in studies that followed people who received thirty or more injections over a period of 9 years. It would take a dose of more than 100 times the average dose given for cosmetic use for cosmetic Botox treatments to be fatal.
