The PERFECT Combination for a Youthful Skin - by Dr Sravani Sandhya , Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag


A lot of patients come to me asking for non surgical options for fine lines, wrinkles and scars.At Aura Skin and Hair Clinic Vishakhpatnam , we offer many options for skin rejuvenation that, when performed alone, can give you superior results. 

However, some of our treatments can be performed together to take your appearance to the next level, restoring the fresh, youthful skin that you are searching for. So what is the best combination of laser and injectable treatments for you? 

We think it’s the Fraxel LaserJuvederm and Botox.







THE FRAXEL RESTORE DUAL LASER
  • How it works – It’s a laser treatment that has the ability to penetrate deeply into the dermis without burning or destroying the skin’s outer layer. The heat from the laser stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, which will gradually repair damage and improve skin tone and texture.
  • What it treats – Sun damage, fine lines, skin texture issues, acne scars.
    Treatment – A topical anesthetic is applied to clean skin, and most treatments last about 30 minutes. Depending on the conditions you’re treating, it may take three to six sessions to achieve the results you desire.
  • Recovery – There is little to no downtime after your Fraxel treatment, and the only side effects are mild swelling and redness, similar to the feeling of a sunburn. Any flaking or peeling is normal, and it is important to follow  care instructions to avoid scarring or damage to your skin.
  • Results – Because the results of Fraxel laser treatments depend on your body’s collagen production, it usually takes up to six months to see results after each session. For optimal results, you should stick with your treatment schedule and be patient while your body works its magic.

JUVEDERM FACIAL FILLER
  • How it works – Juvederm uses a form of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a molecule found naturally in the human body. It binds to water, smoothing lines, filling wrinkles, and using its own natural ability to give you youthful-looking skin and plumped up lips and cheeks.
  • What it treats – Facial lines, under eye hollows, acne scars, loss of volume in the lips,high cheek bones,arched eyebrows.
  • Treatment – Injections are quick and virtually painless, as the Juvederm formulation contains a mild anesthetic.
  • Recovery – There is no downtime required, and side effects are mild and minimal. They may include minor swelling, bruising or redness at the injection site.
  • Results – While you will immediately notice some results, the final effects aren’t typically visible until about two weeks post-treatment.

BOTOX COSMETIC
  • How it works – Botox is used to treat active (or dynamic) wrinkles. These are wrinkles that are a result of repetitive facial movements, like smiling, frowning or squinting. Botox contains a neurotoxin that causes temporary paralysis in the muscles responsible for active expressions. This keeps your forehead smooth, and with continued use, can prevent new wrinkles from forming.
  • What it treats – Forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet.
  • Treatment – Botox is a quick and virtually painless injectable procedure.
  • Recovery – There is no downtime after Botox injections, and side effects (if any) are temporary. These may include mild redness or swelling.
  • Results – Results of Botox are typically visible within about five days after treatment, but final results may take up to two weeks.

Depending on the extent of your skin damage, combining Fraxel laser treatments, Juvederm and Botox can offer facial rejuvenation results that are superior to those found with only one of these treatments. Because each treatment addresses a different type of issue, combining them can offer a comprehensive treatment that promises to take years off of your appearance.

Combining these three treatments is safe, and they can be performed together in one session, or at least spaced closely together. Most providers choose to perform the laser treatment first, as it is unknown whether the laser energy causes the filler material to break down and affect your results. There is no danger of interaction between Botox and Juvederm ingredients, and overall, your results leave you looking youthful and beautiful.

If you are looking for a safe and non-invasive alternative to a surgical facelift, or simply a way to refresh your appearance while still looking natural, call us now +91 9177799077 to schedule a consultation and let us help you find the perfect combination of treatments for you skin.

8 Tips For Beautiful Skin - Dr. Sravani, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic , Visakhapatnam


Watch Sun Exposure Indoors

Yes, you read it right: UV rays (in particular UVA rays) can penetrate the windows in your home and office and cause wrinkling and brown spots.




Consider Your Water

Apart from hydrating yourself by drinking water at regular intervals.water that is used to bathe is equally important…Hard water doesn’t allow washes to lather easily, prompting you to use more soap, which can cause dryness. (Gentle, nonsoap formulas, which aren’t meant to lather, can minimize this).

“Soft water doesn’t remove soap well, so it can leave a residue on your skin.(If your water is soft, use face and body cleansers sparingly).


Drink Green Tea

Since vizag is hot round the year. “Iced tea is best because hot beverages can worsen redness and other symptoms of rosacea.”

Another benefit: The epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea may help prevent the collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles as well as sun-induced DNA damage in the skin . 


Keep Stress in Check

It takes a toll on nearly every part of your body, including your skin. Acne, hair fall, rosacea, psoriasis etc etc.


Improve Your Air Quality

Avoiding smoky environments is smart, since “just being around smoke can lead to the release of free radicals that damage skin and hasten aging,”


Switch to Plain Toothpaste

Those with tartar-control ingredients or added flavors, like cinnamon, may contribute to a common skin condition called perioral dermatitis.

It looks like pimples, redness, and scaling around the mouth.


Choose Water-Based Hair Products

Some conditioners, as well as pomades, volumizers, and styling creams, contain oils or waxes that can clog pores and create acne, especially on the forehead, the back, and the hairline. 



Sleep a Full Night

While you’re snoozing, the skin’s repair mechanisms swing into action. Being sleep-deprived, by contrast, puts stress on the body, causing it to release more adrenaline and cortisol, which can trigger breakouts and other skin

To keep that frazzled feeling under control, regularly practice stress-management techniques, like yoga, deep breathing, and meditation.

The Real Effect Of Stress On Your Skin & Hair - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag

Stress happens to everyone, but since you can't avoid your job, daily chores, or life, the best thing to do is learn to manage the stress. This includes eating healthy, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and taking care of yourself.



Dark Circles & Under Eye Bags: Tomorrow's to-do list can weigh on your mind, keeping you from getting enough beauty sleep. This can cause fluid to pool below your lower eyelid area, and what you end up with is a puffy mess in the morning.

Get at least eight hours of sleep. Since the light from your smartphone's screen simulates sunlight, shut off any electronic devices an hour before you go to sleep.

Acne: Stress causes skin issues to flare up regardless of what you're prone to, whether it's acne, psoriasis, or eczema. When it comes to acne, stress releases cortisol, which can throw off the other hormones in your body and cause breakouts on your face or body.

Drinking a lot of water and eating a well-balanced diet are important, since your body can't handle stress well if it's not properly nourished. Fruits, vegetables, and high-quality proteins like grass-fed meats are also crucial.

Graying Hair & Hair Loss: "If you're predisposed to gray hair, stress can cause the melanin in your hair to stop producing, leaving it gray. "It can also cause your hair to become thinner in diameter over time."Hair loss is usually a reaction to significant physiological stress caused by an extreme change in your diet, medical issues, or sudden lifestyle changes.

A variety of stress may cause your body to undergo hair loss, when there's some type of physiological change in your system. "For instance,you go on or off an oral contraceptive or you lose more than 8 kilos of weight.Things like this change the physiological balance in your system.

It's also important to note that not all hair loss is anxiety related, but the two may occur at a similar period of time. Many people that start to suffer from hair loss are at an age with many other stresses, like kids, work, and finances. Because they happen at the same age they may seem related, but are technically different conditions.

The good news for anxiety sufferers is that not all anxiety related hair loss is permanent. If stress and anxiety are what caused your hair loss, then reducing that anxiety can help your hair come back.

If you notice your hair falling out more than usual, talk to your doctor to make sure nothing serious is going on.

Fine Lines: Constantly making certain facial expressions, like furrowing your brows when you're stressed or pursing your lips, can lead to deeper wrinkles in these areas over time.


Stay Balanced & Look Beautiful : It’s okay to push yourself as great things can happen when you step out of your comfort zone. But always be aware of your boundaries, as your soul responds the same as your skin; when you don’t take enough time to strengthen, you’ll weaken your natural barrier and be more susceptible to having problems.

Drink a lot of water — eight glasses or more each day. You can also have some green tea for a boost of healthy antioxidants and eat foods that have a high water content. (fruits and veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, beets, and celery are 80 to 90 percent water).

Quit Smoking To Look Younger - Aura Skin Clinic , Vizag


Tip:- STOP SMOKING TO LOOK YOUNGER

Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health.



 
Smoking also damages collagen and elastin — the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles.
 
If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.

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.



Dr.Sravani Sandhya is an well experienced dermatologist in Vizag, She specialises 
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.

Pigmentation (Freckles , Melasma , Aging Spots, Nevus of ota) Laser Treatment in Vizag - Aura Skin Clinic

Looking beautiful is not looking fair, ideal look for naturally healthy skin is a clear radiant even skin tone. When the skin is clear of blemishes it projects a natural healthy radiance.

What do you mean by pigmented lesions?
These are the lesions that are darker than the rest of the skin, result from excess melanin production and deposition.

What is melanin?
Melanin is what gives our skin its color. Melanin is produced by  melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment-producing cells. The number of melanocytes present in our skin will determine our skin colour.

Why do we get these lesions?
High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types are present at birth, hormonal changes, trauma but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays.

What are these pigmented lesions?
Freckles, lentigens, Cafe au lait, Nevus of Ota, Mongolian spots and other flat pigmented birthmarks

What are the treatment options?
Skin lightening creams, chemical peels, Q-switched Nd YAG laser is the better treatment of choice and finally with all these treatments sun avoidance is the important factor.

What is Nd YAG laser?
Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet) is a crystal that is used as a laser medium for solid-state lasers. Lasers work by emitting a wavelength of high energy light, which when focused on a certain skin condition will create heat and destroy diseased cells. Light pulses target melanin at variable depth on or in the skin.                                                                                             
How many sessions are required?
Sessions vary from 2-6 sessions. Freckles and age spots might not require many sessions but pigmented nevi require about 6-8 sessions.

What is the time gap between each session?
3-5 weeks.

Will the lesions disappear completely?
In most cases, the laser treatment leads to satisfactory fading or complete removal of the freckles and age spots. Most of the birthmarks will fade with treatment but some recur. These may require additional treatment to keep pigmentation at bay.  Age spots often fade or disappear with a single treatment. Thanks to the q switched Nd Yag laser, you (usually) don’t have to live with unwanted freckles, age spots, or pigmented lesions for the rest of your life.

What are the risks of treatment?
Side effects are very rare but if  you are unlucky you can have infection, scaring, hypo or hyperpigmentation.


Melasma

Aging Spots

Freckles

Nevus of ota
