Hair Fall Treatment Tips By Dermatologist Dr.Nivedita Dadu

Normally we lose 50-100 hair each day. But if you are losing more than 100 hair then you might be suffering from excessive hair shedding which is also known as Telogen Effluvium. And excessive hair loss can affect a person’s psychological health as they may feel low on self confidence and bad mood due to baldness. Sometimes it is because of change in atmosphere/weather which is normal and once you get used to the weather you won’t lose hair in excess. But there can be many other reasons for hair loss such as stress, aging, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy diet, skin disease or as a symptom of some chronic disease.

As the hair fall affects your personality in so many ways, Hair Treatment clinics have come up with various hair oils, hair creams and medicines to help you prevent excessive hair loss and various scalp infections.

All About Laser Photofacial


This interesting technique is a term for the treatment of your skin for various conditions using a light-based technology. It is mostly used for the face and neck areas. It is also known as a foto facial, facial rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation.

How Does Laser Photofacial Works?

An intense pulsed light (IPL) is beamed at the skin in controlled broad spectrum light waves that are aimed at either the hemoglobin or the melanin and penetrate deep into the skin. This light breaks the wall of the blood vessel or the melanin pigment, causing them to be absorbed by the body. Therefore, the basic principle behind this versatile skin procedure is the heating and stimulation of the dermis, while protecting and cooling the epidermis.

What is it used for?

The intense pulsed light (IPL) is used to primarily boost collagen, fix brown spots and broken capillaries, but there also other uses:

1. Lightening and removal of sun spots or age spots

2. Reducing redness or rosacea

3. Controlling flushing

4. Reduction of oiliness

5. Lightening of acne scars

6. Freckled skin

7. Smoothening of uneven skin texture

The duration of the treatment depends on the extent of the issue and damage caused and how your skin responds in return. It is a cheaper alternative to plastic surgery and much gentler and completely non-invasive too. It is a quick procedure that lasts about thirty minutes. It is a painless procedure with some mild discomfort that may be felt, like a rubber band snapping. Therefore, there is minimal risk of complications and recovery time is almost immediate. Slight redness of skin is the most common side effect that may be seen, but that too fades in a while.

You would need 3-5 treatments over a span of few months in order to get optimal results. Improvement with each procedure is noted and monitored. It is one of the safest light-based treatments available out there, with positive results. With this procedure, come away feeling younger with a blemish free, glowing face.

Types Of Burns That You Should Know About

types-of-burns-that-you-should-know-about-skinologyBurns are common injuries faced by almost everyone at some point of their life. Most burns are recoverable without serious health consequences depending on the degree of injury. However, some burns can be more dangerous as they might lead to excess damage of the skin cells. Such cases would require immediate emergency medical care to prevent further complications that might lead to an excessive damage of the body part or death.

So what are the degrees of burn and what to do when you have them?

First Degree: Skin turns red without blisters.

First degree burns affect the outermost layer of the skin and cause negligible damage to the skin. They can normally be treated under minimal home care such as applying cold water.

Second Degree: Skin thickens along with blisters.

They are more serious than first degrees. Some blisters might pop, giving the skin a wet appearance. When you do experience a second degree burn, you immediately put the affected skin under cold water for 10-15 minutes.

Third Degree: Skin thickens throughout the damaged part with a white leathery appearance. Third degree burns can be extremely serious and therefore it is advised never to self-treat cases of third degree burns. Call or visit a doctor immediately.

Fourth Degree: An extension of the third degree along with the injury reaching up to the tendons and bones. Emergency medical supervision is essential for fourth degree burns.

Causes of Burns: There can be several causes of burn injuries rather than just touching hot objects accidentally. Such causes can be classified as under-

A. Thermal Burns: Results from explosions, hot liquids, flame or contact with hot materials like coal or glass.

B. Chemical Burns: Results from strongly acidic or alkaline chemicals.

C. Electrical Burns: Results from electricity such as electric wires, electric meters, etc.

D. Radiological Burns: Results from radiation.

Overall Prevention of Burns – The best method of fighting burns is to stop them from occurring. Certain jobs can put you at greater risks of burns. Nevertheless, it is always better to take preventive care to avoid them. Preventive care includes the following:

• Keep children away from kitchen

• Install fire extinguisher in or near kitchen or near vulnerable areas in workplace.

• Replace smoke detectors on time

• Cover electric outlets

• Discard electric cords with exposed wires

• Wear gloves while handling chemicals.

Treating An Abscess


An abscess is a tender, swollen area within the body tissue that contains pus and debris. Pus is a thick fluid comprising of white blood cells, bacteria and dead tissue. It is painful to touch and can appear anywhere in your body such as your groin, your armpits (axillae), around your tooth (dental abscess), anus and vagina (Bartholin gland abscess) or at the base of your spine (pilonidal abscess).

There are three different ways to treat an abscess depending upon the size and type of abscess. Sometimes, skin abscesses can get better and drain naturally without medical treatment through self-care measures such as hot compresses for half an hour, four times a day. The three ways to remove abscesses thought medical treatment are-

1. Antibiotics- An abscess is caused by staph bacteria that is unaffected by most antibiotics. Initially, prescribed antibiotics can only cure common infections since the bacteria are not identified. However, once the identification from a pus sample is done, the antibiotics prescribed are for a more focused type of bacteria. However, sometimes antibiotics are not enough to clear skin abscesses completely and they may keep growing or reoccur.

2. Incision and Drainage– A small operation needs to be carried out by the doctor during the incision and drainage treatment. Local anaesthesia is administered to the patient to numb the area around the abscess. Firstly the doctor cuts the abscess, draining out the pus. The pus may be used for testing. Following this, the wound is cleaned by a sterile saline solution and is then covered in wound dressing, allowing any newly formed pus to drain away.

3. Surgery– You may also need to undergo surgery if the drainage treatment has not been able to remove all the pus. The type of surgery, however, depends upon the size and location of the abscess and may require creation of a bigger incision in your body to wash the pus out completely.

All About Facelift Surgeries


Facelift, also known as Rhytidectomy, is a surgical method used to remove excess facial skin to improve visible signs of ageing. Facelift may also be combined with eyelid surgery or other procedures and is usually performed under twilight sleep or general anesthesia.

Facial areas under facelift include:

• Sagging in the middle of the face

• Deep creases under the eyes

• Deep creases joining the nose to the corners of the face

• Fallen or disappeared fat

• Areas of uneven skin tone

• Excess fatty deposits or loose skin, giving the appearance of a double chin

Process of facelift surgery

A number of different procedures of facelift surgery exist, depending on the type of incision, area of face or invasiveness.

The conventional facelift surgery is performed through incisions made from the hairline to the temporal region (in front of the ear). The incision curves behind the back of the ear and ends near the hairline at the neck. The underlying tissues are then separated from the skin of the cheek and neck with scissors or a scalpel.

At this stage, deeper tissues are constricted through sutures, with or without the removal of excess deeper tissues, the amount of which is determined by the know-how and judgment of the surgeon. Finally, the excess skin is removed and the skin is redraped and incisions closed through staples and sutures.

Surgical techniques that invade deeper tissues, rather than just the skin or fat, also show similar results.

Types of Facelift Surgeries

SMAS lift: Re-suspension and securing of the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System layer, by counteracting gravity caused by laxity and aging.

Deep-plane facelift: A modification of the SMAS lift in which deepening of the nasolabial fold is corrected more accurately by freeing cheek fat and muscles from the bone implement.

Composite facelift: Characterized by the extra repositioning and fixation of the muscles of orbicularis oculi.

Mid-face lift: Improves lines between nose to mouth and roundedness of the cheek muscles.

Thread lift: Used in treating sagging eyes, folded regions of the forehead and nasolabial areas.

pigmentation on face

Melasma: Pigmentation on Face

A beautiful and clear skin is what everyone wants. Nothing is more envied than a skin with clear complexion. But sometimes, we get blotchy, brownish patches on our skin which are known as uneven pigmentation or Melasma. It is caused by excess production of melanin in our body. The pigmentation can be caused by direct contact with harmful sun rays, pollution or other environmental changes, hormonal imbalance, pregnancy and sometimes as a symptom of some chronic internal organ disease or the medication taken for such diseases. Melasma is more common in women than men and affets between the age of 20-40 years. Hence, it is important to consult a Dermatologist to get the right diagnosis and right treatment on time in order to reduce of pigmentation on face.


Epidermal Melasma : This type of pigmentation responds well to treatment and has a prominent dark brown colour which can be easily distinguished from the normal skin.
Dermal Melasma:
This kind of Melasma is light brown or blue coloured and merges with the original skin colour.
Mixed Melasma: This type of pigmentation on face is very common. It is a combination of Epidermal & Dermal pigmentation and hence is a mix of dark brown, light brown and blue coloured patches. There’s only partial improvement in mixed melasma with the help of an expert treatment.

There are some Adjuvant treatments which help you reduce of pigmentation on face
Chemical Peels– Skin peeling has been used as skin rejuvenation therapy since centuries in the form of sour milk to red wine facials and baths. Chemical peels remove the top layer of the skin, and help the new skin to grow back there by imparting a younger, fresher skin with improved texture.
Meso Facials-A complex and extremely effective lightening treatment that illuminates the complexion reduces discolouration and evens out skin tone. Vitamin C and other active ingredients infused into the skin using electrophoration provide protection from free radicals and renew the epidermal layer of your skin.
Insta-Glow Peel Facial- Designed for individuals for whom time is a luxury. These quick fix secrets will have your skin looking nourished, hydrated and glowing in no time at all.
Laser Toning-A treatment using 1064 nm wavelength of Q Switched Nd:YAG laser, based on the principle of selective destruction of pigmented cells.


It isn’t really difficult to have a flawless skin. If we take care of our skin and make it a routine we can avoid pigmentation on face/skin. Here are some points which can be practised in daily life to avoid pigmentation:

  • Refrain from direct exposure to sunlight and use sunscreen lotions as recommended by your dermatologist.
  • Be careful of what you eat. Include healthy and fresh foods in your diet and avoid oily, packed or junk foods.
  • Make it a habit to maintain personal hygiene.
  • Stay happy. Because in some cases it has been found that emotional stress can cause excess production of melanin.
  • You can use make-up if you want to hide the pigmentation on your face.

Melasma takes time to get recovered even if you take proper treatment from a dermatologist. So, it is advisable to take care of your daily routine to prevent the pigmentation and consult a dermatologist as soon as you start seeing the symptoms.
