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.

For more details discuss with experts at Aura Skin and Hair Clinic and analyze the root cause.

Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure & Questions To Ask A Dermatologist

General questions to ask your doctor before tattoo removals

  • Is a doctor on site? 
  • Is the doctor board-certified in dermatology? 
  • Was my medical history taken? 
  • Was I given an initial evaluation to determine if the technique or procedure is appropriate for my skin type? 
  • Did the doctor show me before-and-after photos?   

How does it work?

The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with regular intervals between sessions.


What is the estimated cost of the procedure? 

Cost is dependent on the size of the lesion


How long is one appointment?

Time is dependent on the size of the lesion that is from 10 mins to few hours.

How often will I need to receive treatment to remove my tattoo?

you will need treatment minimum every four weeks and a course of 6-10 treatments is often enough to remove the tattoo depending on the colour and depth of the tattoo ink.

Does tattoo removal hurt? 

There is a mild pricking sensation during the procedure, most people are comfotable during the procedure.

How long is the recovery time associated after each  procedure? 

1 week.

Do you have before-and-after patient images to help to prepare me for what to expect? 

Yes, we do have images that will help you in making decision.

Will someone walk me through the process before going in for treatment? 

Yes, we have experts who will clarify all your doubts.

What are the side effects?
