LED Light Therapy, Does It Really Work? - Dr Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Vizag

LED LIGHT THERAPY

LED light therapy is something that is synonymous with all the new age dermatological and skincare clinics worldwide. It is a treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light in order to treat different skin conditions, the most popular being red and blue. NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used by some aestheticians to help regenerate the skin from aging. It’s also used for acne. Your healthcare provider uses red or blue light frequencies based on the skincare concern. Red is primarily used for anti-aging, while blue is used for acne treatment.



SAFETY OF THIS PROCEDURE

Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays and are therefore safe for regular use. LED light therapy has no side effects compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It is relatively safe for all skin colours and types. Please mention the medicines you take for acne or other skin conditions to your doctor before you start the therapy. You should avoid LED therapy if you have skin rashes. Side effects are extremely rare but may include increased inflammation, redness and rashes.


AFTERCARE

Stay away from the sun for about 48 hours and use sunscreen. In case of any redness or swelling please apply cold packs.

CONVENIENCE OF THIS PROCEDURE

This is a convenient procedure and takes about 20 minutes at the most. It is the perfect treatment to do in the office lunch break. It is most effective when performed every week and later every couple of months.



Red light

Red, or infrared, light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins.

In theory, more collagen means that your skin will look smoother and fuller, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red LED light is also thought to reduce inflammation while improving circulation, which can give you a healthier glow.

Blue light

Blue LED light therapy, on the other hand, targets the sebaceous glands, which are also called oil glands. They’re located beneath your hair follicles.

Sebaceous glands are necessary for lubricating your skin and hair so that it doesn’t dry out. However, these glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne.

The theory is that blue LED light therapy can target these oil glands and make them less active. In turn, you may see fewer acne breakouts. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.

Some other wavelengths and their benefits:

AFTERCARE

Stay away from the sun for about 48 hours and use a sunscreen. In case of any redness or swelling please apply cold packs.

How long does it take for light therapy to work?

You can see results from the first treatment, however we would recommend a minimum course of six. For more dramatic results and if you'd like to supercharge your skin we would advise you to take a course of 12 treatments.

Toners! Do you really need them? - Dr.Sravani Sandhya, Chief Dermatologist, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

What is a toner?

A face toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup. It corrects and balances the pH of your skin. It is the step followed before moisturising and follows the cleansing routine.In other words, a facial toner thoroughly cleans the skin and helps remove built up surface dead skin cells. Toners help to clean and close pores.



Choosing a toner for your skin type:

First of all, it's important to always use an alcohol-free face toner. The other ingredients should be picked based on your skin type.

For acne-prone skin, choose an alcohol free toner with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This will leave your skin clean and glowing without flaking. A gentle tingle for a few seconds will let you know it has just the right pH level that is slightly acidic. This form of acid is gentle even for sensitive skin, unlike irritating ingredients like retinoids.Salicylic acid is often recommended in a facial toner for acne prone skin. However, this ingredient can be harsh and irritating, especially for sensitive skin.

For dry skin skin and for those who are in 30's and 40's ingredients may like coenzyme Q10, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin C are helpful.

Witch hazel, aloe vera, grapefruit seed extract, cucumber and vitamin E are some of the soothing ingredients if you have combination skin

If you have oily skin, sandalwood, willow bark, lavender, clary sage and tea tree are your best bet.

For sensitive skin, look for soothing ingredients like aloe vera and cucumbers.

Although essential oils and plant extracts are marketed to help give them a 'natural' and 'good for you' feel, these ingredients may result in skin irritations so it's best to avoid these.


How to use a face toner?
  • Start by cleaning your face with a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin or one that is suited for your skin type. 
  • Dampen a cotton ball with the alcohol-free toner, and apply it on your face.
  • Allow it to dry.
  • If you have combination or oily skin, you can use an alcohol-free toner at day and night. For dry skin, it's best to only use it once a day at night time.
  • Always follow with moisturiser for your skin type.


Side effects of using a toner

Toners do not have any adverse side effects, as long as you avoid alcohol-based ones which may irritate your skin. Overusing a toner (more than twice a day) can cause skin irritation. 

Can I Skip Toner?

You can skip using a toner in case your cleanser is already pH balanced and gives you a squeaky clean look.

A Cosmetic Procedure that is praised by women and men alike - By Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Daspalla Hills

DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION

One of the most popular cosmetic skin care treatments available is diamond microdermabrasion, a procedure that is praised by women and men alike. No chemicals or anesthesia are used in the procedure, which is known for being simple and pain-free. It is appropriate for most skin types because it is non-invasive and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne, age spots, stretch marks, and more.



Microdermabrasion treatments are done in medical offices and spas by dermatologists or people who specialize in skin care. You will see immediate results after the procedure, but to get the best effect, you will need as many as six to nine treatments.




Microdermabrasion works by removing a few of the top layers of the skin called the stratum corneum. Much like brushing your teeth, microdermabrasion helps to gently remove "plaque" and skin debris. Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement. Multiple treatments in combination with sunscreen, sun avoidance, and other skin-care creams yield best results.

  • Microdermabrasion is safe for almost everyone, doesn't require anesthesia, and has shown promising results in clinical studies.
  • It reduces lines, wrinkles, and dull-looking skin.
  • It helps to treat age spots and uneven pigmentation.
  • Enlarged pores and blackheads are visibly diminished.
  • Helps treat acne and acne scars.
  • Fades stretch marks.

What ages are appropriate for microdermabrasion?

While there are no specific age or sex restrictions, typically children over age 15 up to adults age 65 can get microdermabrasion. While there is no age limit, mature skin over age 70 may have slightly higher risks of bruising and skin abrasions. Individuals younger than age 12 may sometimes also receive treatment under the care of a dermatologist.


Side effects of microdermabrasion

Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment.

You might be advised to use a moisturizer to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruising may also occur. This is mostly caused by the suction process during the treatment.

What to expect after microdermabrasion?

There is little to no downtime after microdermabrasion. You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately.

Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It’s extremely important to protect your skin with sunscreen. Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment.

You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.

Your provider will likely design a plan for the initial number of sessions, as well as periodic maintenance treatments.

8 Holi skin & hair care tips you must not miss - Dr. Sravani Sandhya, Aura Skin & Hair Clinic - Visakhapatnam

Holi is that one colorful day of the year that we all look forward to. With all the Parties,  Bollywood music, delicious food. It’s that time of the year when you play with colors that add joy to your life.

This holi is definitely going to be different, with the novel corona-virus / COVID-19 on high alert, so should you avoid playing holi completely, NO.

 

People cannot put their lives on hold, nor is it necessary. Celebrate Holi, but maybe you should not celebrate it with thousands of people. Celebrate with close family and friends, avoid big gatherings as far as possible.

 

As much as we love this awesome festival of colors, we just hate the aftermath.So, before you step out, make sure you have these checks in place. Here are a few tips that will help make your Holi a fun-filled, safe and colorful one.




1.) Use organic colors only:

Going the organic way is the new trend, and it’s time we stop using colors with chemicals. Organic colors are chemical-free, easy to wash off and so much gentler to your skin.

2.) Cover Up :

Always wear clothes that cover your body, to protect it from strong colors.

3.) Apply Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is that one miracle product that’ll get you out of every kind of beauty dilemma.before you head out for the day, make sure to lather on your choice of coconut oil on your hair, as well as your body. It’ll make getting cleaned up twice as easy.

4.) Don’t wait for the colors to dry:

Once you’re home, don’t let the colors stay on for too long, take a shower immediately. Use a gentle shampoo to clean your hair, a soft face wash to wash your face and a non-alkaline cleanser to wash your body.It’ll leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed without over-drying it.

5.) Do not use abrasive scrubs or kerosene to wash colors off:

More often than not, it's not the color that much, but the chemicals used in washing away those colors that damage the skin more.Have patience. It's not bad to let it show that you had played Holi the previous day. The residual colors will slowly fade.

6.) Sunscreen is good for you:

Keep using the sunscreen for two more weeks after holi at frequent intervals. Your skin is likely to remain sensitive, especially for people who are known to have allergic conditions. If you develop a rash over the next couple of day, please visit your dermatologist as soon as possible.

7.) Stay Hydrated:

Dehydration causes skin to dry out and this, along with the added chemicals you’re dealing with on holi, can cause skin damage. As you will be spending most of the time outdoors in the sun, it’s always good to drink more water.

8.) Moisturize well:

Use a generous amount of moisturizer on your entire body after taking a shower. This will help get rid of roughness and make sure your skin stays glowing, all day long.

7 Pro tips for your skin before you hit the gym - by Dr. Sravani Sandhya - Aura Skin & Hair Clinic, Visakhapatnam

It’s common knowledge to hydrate and stretch before you jump into a workout, but what skin care considerations should you keep in mind before your next sweat session?


  
1.) Sweating with make-up on can clog your pores and lead to unnecessary breakouts,As part of your pre-workout routine, always remove the make-up from your face before hitting the gym. It takes minutes to do and will save your skin from a lot of stress and discomfort down the road.”

2.) For outdoor workouts you can go for non comedogenic or gel based sunscreen to give you a little coverage without being too heavy.

3.) Keep your hair off your face ― it’s best to keep it pulled back and away from your face during a workout,this helps prevent oils or hair products from clogging

4.) Don’t touch your face!

5.) We already reminded you that gyms are full of germs and other people’s sweat so you don’t want to spread any bacteria onto your skin. So clean your hands.

6.) Always, always, always wash your face post-workout, a quick splash of cool water or a gentle cleanser like and then adding moisturizer or a moisturizer-sunscreen combo before reapplying any makeup.

7.) Pick the right gym towel.

“You don’t want a super plush towel but sort of medium thickness & doesn’t have as much of a plush to it as the fiber in it can hold on to bacteria.

Use ice to reduce post-workout redness.

If you’re someone who gets easily flushed after working up a sweat, grab some ice and suck on it. If you suck on a piece of ice, there’s a temperature receptor on the hard palate of the mouth and it almost resets all the flushing and blushing in your face.”

CES 2019 may have the answer to our biggest skin care problems with the Opté, a premium beauty device that treats your skin imperfections while covering them flawlessly.


Opte is a system based upon digital technology, and it works to create the most perfect skin possible. Its big advantage is that it works instantly, and will remove any imperfections in the skin and spots within seconds.

The system runs a scan of your skin, that locates every single imperfection. It then sets about correcting each detected imperfection with mineral applications that match the color of your skin exactly.


Check out this video below to see how it works in real time.




Watching the Opté apply makeup looks like magic, its like photoshop in real time, just removing all the spots and making skin look clear.

Opté analyses the photos to pinpoint imperfections, then, it custom-creates a serum designed to hide those imperfections.

It all happens nearly instantaneously as you wave the wand over your skin.


Opté is also easier to use than traditional products, which take time and artistry to apply. With the Opté you just scan the Precision Wand across your skin and walk out the door.
