4 Tips To Help You Repair Damaged Winter Hair - Aura Skin Clinic, Vizag

Winter has just started this week. In winter there are gusting winds and low humidity in the air. And low humidity not only dries out your skin but also dries out your hair. If your hair is feeling dry and brittle and is seeking the summer warmth, then read on.





Here are four tips to help you repair your damaged winter hair:

1. Reduce shampooing. Shampooing every second or third day will allow natural oils to remain on your hair and scalp and prevent further drying.

2. Go deep. Once to twice a week, massage a deep conditioner into your hair and scalp and let it rest as you shower. Then rinse with warm water. For extremely dry hair, try using a leave-in deep conditioner or conditioning hair mask that you apply before bedtime and rinse the following morning. Be sure to wear a hair net and to place a towel on your pillow so you don’t stain your bed sheets.

3. Go natural. Using hair dyers and other heating devices take a toll on your hair. When possible, allow your hair to air-dry, but aim for at least once to twice a week.

4. Cool off. Some women who chemically treat their hair (think highlights) and use heating devices regularly (think flatirons), develop trichorrhexis nodosa, or hair breakage. Once hair is broken, you can’t fix it. You can minimize additional damage by reducing usage of heating devices. Try every second or third day instead of every day.

Advanced Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks - Aura Skin Clinic , Seethammadhara - Vizag

Stretch marks have been one of the biggest problems for today's generation.Younger generation have been taking shortcuts to loose weight, using procedures like liposuction and bariatric surgeries rather than the traditional and healthier ways like exercising.These procedures are causing sudden expansion and reduction of skin which ultimately leads to stretch marks and the new age of highly physically conscious generation refuses to live with a physical appearance that not only dissatisfies them but also hinders their chances of higher achievements.



Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks

Stretch marks signify the pulling or stretching of skin which damage the natural formation of collagen that supports the skin elasticity. Generally, women tend to get stretch marks after giving birth or during pregnancy. But that is not the only cause; whether you are a man or woman, you can get stretch marks if;

You have recently gained weight and your skin has overstretched;
You have been obese for a large duration of your life;
You have been applying steroid skin creams (eg: hydrocortisone);
You are a bodybuilder and frequently change your body appearance.


In the beginning, stretch marks are nothing more than reddish-purplish marks but overtime, they grow into pale-white marks elongated over the skin. The most common body parts with the growth of stretch marks are breasts, hips, butt and thighs, back of the knees, calves and even back of the arms.

What can we do for you at Aura Skin Clinic ?

Aura Skin & Hair Clinic , Vizag  is providing you with various options for treatment of stretch marks. The clinic is well equipped to perform advanced laser procedures and mesotherapy treatment for the same.

9 Tips For Finger Nail Care - by Dr Sravani - Aura Skin Clinic, Visakhapatnam


9 Tips To Keep Your Fingernails Looking Their Best


Tip 1 - Keep fingernails dry and clean. This prevents bacteria from growing under your fingernails. Repeated or prolonged contact with water can contribute to split fingernails. Wear cotton-lined rubber gloves when washing dishes, cleaning or using harsh chemicals.

Tip 2 - Practice good nail hygiene. Use a sharp manicure scissors or clippers.

Tip 3 - Trim your nails straight across, then round the tips in a gentle curve.

Tip 4 - Use moisturiser. When you use hand lotion, rub the lotion into your fingernails and cuticles, too.

Tip 5 - Apply a protective layer. Applying a nail hardener might help strengthen nails.

Tip 6 - Ask your doctor about biotin. Some research suggests that the nutritional supplement biotin might help strengthen weak or brittle fingernails.

Tip 7 - Fragile nails can be caused by iron deficiencies. Foodstuffs abundant in iron include liver, trim red meats, species of fish, soy products, beans, lentils, whole grain products, green spinach, fresh vegetables, asparagus, parsley, poultry along with turkey, nuts, egg yolks, dry fruits like raisins, dates and apricots, etc. Eat a lot of these to help keep your nails healthy!

Tip 8 - Beetroots usually contain more calcium and also vitamin D to supplement healthy nail growth. Day-to-day consumption of beetroots is likely to make all your finger nails incredibly healthy and sturdy.

Tip 9 - Likewise for daily nail care, incorporate additional calcium loaded food items for instance milk products into your daily diet.

Winter Skin Care Tips by Dr. Sravani Sandhya - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag



The sun is often seen as our skin’s worst enemy, but winter can be just as much of a worry when it comes to skin.Dry and cold air outside  suck out the moisture, leaving us prone to the formation of new lines. Here’s how to take good care of your skin during winters.

Moisture Boost

“Our skin’s barrier function is less effective in winter so we can’t hold on to whatever water our horny (outer) layers of skin attract from deeper skin layers – and we keep losing moisture to the dry winter air by evaporation.

“To combat transepidermal water loss, look for moisturisers containing humectants such as glycerine, hyaluronic acid, lactic acid and urea – they have the ability to hold and attract water in the skin.”

Drink Warm Water

Water helps plump up the skin, but a cold glass from the tap just isn’t that appealing when it’s freezing outside.
Not surprising then that, during winter, we tend to drink much less than the recommended daily 1.6 litres of fluid for women and 2 litres for men.

Warm water is a great hydrator, but if you can’t stomach it, drink white tea instead.

Studies have shown that extracts in white tea strengthen the skin’s elastin and collagen content.

No Long, Hot Showers

Yes, we know there’s nothing nicer than languishing in a steamy shower but your skin won’t thank you. 

“Long, hot baths and showers strip the skin of its protective oils, allowing moisture to escape,
Keep showers short and warm (not hot) and as soon as you step out of the steam (while your skin is still damp and pores open) apply moisturiser.

TRY: Popping your jar of moisturiser in a sink of hot water while you’re showering. It will feel warm and comforting going on, but will also help it absorb more easily.

Don’t Forget The SPF

UV rays are still very much at large in winter. Use a broad spectrum SPF no lower than SPF25 to protect against UVA and UVB rays.”

Get Your Oats

Dry skin can feel itchy, but scratching can damage skin and encourage fine lines to form into deeper wrinkles. “Collodial Oatmeal is one of my favourite ingredients in winter skincare.

“It has an anti-itch, anti-inflammatory and ultra hydrating action on the skin.

"The beta gluten in oatmeal leaves skin feeling like satin.”

Special-Eye Care

“The fine skin around the eyes can get extra-dry and sore in winter, especially in cold winds, leading to deepened crow’s feet,” 

“Swap your light eye gel for a rich cream containing hydrating rice bran and hyaluronic acid to help balance the skin’s pH.”

It’s A Wrap-Up

It sounds obvious, but covering up with scarves, hats and earmuffs will help avoid moisture loss. Avoid itchy wools if your skin is extra-dry, though.

“Friction from rough clothing can contribute to dry, irritated skin,” warns Dr Stefanie Williams.


Eat Your Fats..!


“Fats are essential for healthy and nourished skin – but be sure to choose healthy (mono-unsaturated) varieties,” says dietitian Nichola Whitehead (nicsnutrition.com). “Fats in nuts and avocados are fantastic for a healthy complexion. They have antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium.”

Why You Should Visit A Dermatologist & Not a Beauty Parlour For Certain Cosmetic Treatments

Beauty Parlours are offering a lot of skin treatments that are normally performed by a qualified dermatologist, they offer to do these at a lower cost and often people fall for these.If you’re like many people, who are concerned about the cost of consulting a dermatologist and visiting a beautician. you will have to pay a fat bill when you visit the doctor after getting infected by treatment done at a beauty parlour.

Whatever you do, don’t play the guessing game when it comes to skin care. It’s always wise to visit you doctor now than regret later.Beauty parlours often recommend a lot of treatments without understanding your skin and its sensitivity.



In india about 70% people take opinion from a beautician and undergo unnecessary procedures and sometimes even invasive procedures like mole removal and warts.


Did you ever for a second think what trouble you are landing in to, just a few examples below of how these treatments can go wrong:

Mole Removal
Since mole removal is done under aseptic precautions there is high chance of
  • Infections
  • Bacterial infection,
  • Viral infection
  • Burns
  • Irritant contact dermatitis
  • Allergic contact dermatitis

Chemical Peels
Every skin reacts in a different way, understanding your skin and using the right products will lead to a good result.Usage of chemical peels which doesn't suit you skin can cause various side effects.
  • ICD
  • ACD
  • Sunburns
  • Suntan 
Undergoing bleaches frequently can damage your skin badly.

At Aura Skin Clinic - Vizag, We take utmost care in treating our patients, all our procedures and treatments are performed by a qualified dermatologist.

Caution:
Next time you are advised at a beauty parlour to undergo cosmetic treatments,chemical peels,wart/mole removals, consult your dermatologist first before you get anything done to your skin.Think before you act.

Anti Aging Therapies @ Aura Skin and Hair Clinic , Vizag - By Dr Sravani Sandhya

In my last blog I have given tips to keep your skin young and healthy on a long run.So in this blog I want to discuss about different modalities of treatment available to mask away your aging skin..


Anti-aging therapies can be grouped under the following:

• Cosmetological care

• Topical agents

• Systemic agents

• Procedures


Cosmetological care


Excellent sun-protection is essential to avoid photodamage. Proper selection and usage of both UVA and UVB protective sunscreens is advised as ultraviolet irradiation reduces production of type I
procollagen, the major structural protein in human skin.

Daily skin care routine should include avoidance of hot, frequent and prolonged baths and avoidance of detergent soaps and foams, which could actually lead to dryness of the skin. Use of moisturizers
is believed to be a key to fountain of youth, although there is disagreement in the literature about the long-term effects of moisturizing the skin.


Topical agents


Topical treatments have a major advantage of being noninvasive but have a long latency period of 3-6 months before any visible change can be observed; they require perpetual maintenance and can cause contact irritancy or allergy and are expensive.

Tretinoin:
Vitamin C:
Other antiaging topicals: N-furfuryladenine 0.1%, Chlorella, Copper peptide complex is used in the prevention and reversal of photoaging.
Alpha hydroxy acids


Systemic agents


These include vitamins C and E, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q 10 (CoQ 10), green tea (polyphenols), melatonin and selenium.

Hormones: Estradiol and testosterone implantation in postmenopausal women is supposed to retard collagen loss.


Procedures


Procedures refer to office-based treatments that may be either physician-performed or device-driven procedures such as laser treatments.
  • Microdermabrasion: 
  • Chemical peels:
  • Botulinum toxin: 
  • Soft tissue augmentation
  • Lasers
Cutaneous resurfacing can be broadly divided into ablative skin resurfacing (ASR), which can be accomplished by the use of pulsed carbon dioxide and erbium:YAG; or non-ablative dermal remodeling
(NDR), which can be achieved by non-ablative neodymium: YAG system, radiofrequency, intense pulsed light, fractional photo-thermolysis or light emitting diode photomodulation.

Based on the study performed by the American Society for

Dermatologic Surgery in 1999, it was found that majority of women agreed in the adage 'you look as good as you feel.' The Indian women are no different, except that the cost of procedures to look good is prohibitive. Most of the device-driven procedures are expensive and hence simple office-based procedures like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, fillers and botulinum toxin would continue to be the mainstay of anti-aging therapies in India.

However, advancements in dermatology and explosion of technology will hopefully continue to make antiaging therapies affordable and acceptable to more individuals in future.

At Aura Skin Clinic we advise and perform all the anti-aging therapies based on the client need.

What can i do to look younger...? - by Dr. Sravani @ Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

Often people come to me at the age of 40 asking me for skin care to look younger and to have a flawless skin..

You should understand aging is a process and  the way we look is reflection of our habits and behaviour.




what are the things to be avoided to reduce your chronological age?

1) Avoid sun exposure

a) This can be done by using right sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 20.
Make sunscreen application part of your out-the-door routine.

b) Use wide brimmed hats and scars 

c) Avoid sun between 10am to 2pm.

2) Smoking accelerates aging process.it is directly proportional to number of wrinkles you have on face. Tobacco smoke gives skin an unhealthy color and coarse texture, as well.

3) Wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crow's feet) or between the eyebrows (frown lines) are thought to be caused by small muscle contractions. Over a lifetime, habitual facial expressions like frowning, smiling, or squinting leave their mark on our skin.

4) No matter how soft your pillow, it puts pressure on your face each night. Over years, this can etch lines into your chin, cheeks, or forehead. try to sleep on your back to avoid those sleep lines.

in anti aging treatments, medical laser procedures, cosmetology procedures, treats a broad range of dermatology conditions including acne, pigmentation disorder, eczema, allergies, psoriasis and paediatric dermatology.

When to Eat Fruits....? By Dr. Sravani Sandhya @ Aura Skin Clinic - Visakhapatnam

You must have heard all your life people telling you to eat fruits, but did you ever think for a minute when to eat?

Photo Credit - http://women-fit.com/wp-content/uploads/hm/2014/11/girl-with-fruit.jpg

Here is what I would like to share about fruits and how you could gain good benefits from consuming them…..!

We should eat fruits when we are in a fasting state or when our liver store is empty, so first thing in the morning on an empty stomach or immediately after exercise. Any time aside from this, the body converts the fructose from the fruits to triglycerides. Not only does fruit juice give you 4 to 5 times the amount of fructose you get in one serving of a fruit, it also lacks the goodness of the fruits fiber. So eat your fruit first thing in the morning, not with the breakfast.

How Frequently Should You Wash Your Hair...?

Photo Credit: - http://elbaflamenco.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/How-To-Wash-Hair-Extensions.png

No matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp produces the same amount of oil. Cutting back on shampooing will have no effect on your sebaceous glands; genetics and hormones determine the amount of oil they produce. 

How often you wash your hair depends on various factors, Well first of all everyone has different kind of hair. Washing too often, in fact, can do more harm than good, "It's paradoxical, but people who wash their hair a lot to get rid of oil are drying out their scalp and producing more oil Besides avoiding washing every day, there are other things to keep in mind when trying to determine the right amount of washing for you. 

Here are the three main important factors:

If your hair is anywhere from normal  to dry, you probably only need to wash it once or twice a week, if you have a greasy scalp, you probably need to wash your hair more often.

Coarse or curly hair slows down sebum's spread, so if you have hair like this you may only need to shampoo once a week. On the other hand, people with fine, straight hair will likely need to shampoo twice a week or more.

Another thing to consider is the paces you put your hair through styling and treating it. If your hair is processed or damaged by styling, you should wash it less frequently.
