Hair Loss Treatment - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

Regardless of the time of year, hair loss is always one of the most frequent complaints in the dermatology clinic. At some point in life, hair loss affects over half of all individuals for one reason or another. Sometimes, hair loss is temporary. In such instances, it may be secondary to another condition or cause, and it may resolve without treatment.

More women than men suffer from temporary hair loss. A variety of causes including hormonal influence, stress, diet, medications, or other medical conditions may play a role in temporary hair loss. However, much more commonly, hair loss is genetic in nature. Some genetic hair loss may also be temporary in nature, but most genetic hair loss will worsen over time if left untreated.Although the loss of hair is generally benign in nature, it can carry a substantial psychological toll on many individuals.

Studies have shown that 52% of women and 28% of men with hair loss are “very-to-extremely upset” about it. Often hair loss will lead to a decline in self-esteem and self-confidence, and may pay a role in the worsening of depression or anxiety. When dealing with hair loss that is secondary to another cause or condition, the causative factor must be treated. However, for genetic-type hair loss there are several currently available treatment options.

Such treatments may be over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription, and they may be delivered topically, orally, or by injection into the skin. In some cases, more than one treatment is recommended in order to utilize multiple mechanisms of action.Topical treatments for hair loss include minoxidil and various steroidal applications. Minoxidil is available OTC. It helps to both maintain current hair growth as well as promote re-growth. It is safe and effective in both men and women, and generally well tolerated. It usually takes 3-6 months to show and effect, and must be used continuously to maintain the benefits. Oral treatments also include both prescription and OTC options. Traditionally, oral prescription drugs options include finasteride, dutasteride, and spironolactone. These drugs work by interfering with the natural hormones that cause hair loss, and depending upon the drug chosen, there are options for both men and women.

These drugs are useful to reduce further hair loss, and in many cases will produce regrowth of previously lost hair. Like many prescription oral drugs, these medications may have systemic side effects, and the risks and benefits of treatment should be discussed with your dermatology provider.

Common Mistakes While Self Treating Acne by Dr Sravani - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

Here are a few common mistakes people make when self treating acne.


Over – washing. A couple of times a day is normal and as long as you use warm (not hot) water, you’re maintaining a healthy skin barrier.

Using too-strong medications. The high % benzoyl peroxides can easily irritate what is already sensitive skin. Stay on the low end. If you think you need 10%, then it’s time to see a dermatologist.
 

Using the wrong exfoliant. Those crushed shell products? Throw them out. They make little cuts in your skin and can spread infections. Exfoliants with microbeads are better. Or use a clean washcloth.
 

Popping without prep. You can buy extractors or pull out a needle, but unless you prep first, you can make matters worse. Rule #1: If the head of your pimple isn’t white, leave it alone. Prep by cleaning your hands, your skin, warming the pimple and sterilizing your pimple and extractor with alcohol.
Use gauze to cover your finger tips. Press up and in from the sides. If at first you don’t succeed, don’t “try try again”.
 

Forgetting to wash your hands throughout the day. (Applies to phones – wipe them down once a day with an alcohol wipe or screen cleaner.)
 

Delaying needed medical care. Not seeing a dermatologist when your acne is uncontrolled. Don’t wait to get professional treatment and acne care products. If your acne is more than the occasional pimple, taking steps early can save you years of misery and prevent scarring that can last a lifetime.
