Peeling is a procedure in which concentrated extracts from certain plants or fruits are applied to your skin to enhance the appearance of the skin. This solution when applied to skin causes exfoliation of dead and damaged layers of skin to reveal fresh and glowing skin underneath. It also stimulates deeper dermal tissue leading to newer collagen formation and regeneration of skin.

Platelets form a major component of your blood and are helpful for healing of tissue injury or damaged skin by secreting multiple growth factors.

During this procedure, a small sample of your own blood is drawn in a special test tube which is centrifuged to form a solution rich in platelets, which is then injected or used with dermaroller for specific skin or hair condition.

electroporation

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive, virtually painless technique involving the placement of micronutrients, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, peptides and vitamins, with micro injections into the skin.

It is mostly used for hair fall management where growth factors and vitamins for hair are directly injected in to scalp skin using very fine needles to stimulate hair roots and providing nutrition to growing hair. It is repeated every couple of weeks initially for few sessions then frequency of treatment is reduced till desired results are obtained. A Maintenance treatment might be required in few individuals depending on severity of the condition.







Other indications

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Skin pigmentation

Dermaroller

Micro-needling or medical needle therapy is a novel form of collagen induction therapy.

Collagen is an integral part of our skin imparting firmness and elasticity. It provides structural support to various components of skin thus giving smooth and plump appearance to skin. As we age, collagen starts degrading and decreasing in quantity thus leading to lax and wrinkled skin. Skin disorders like acne and chickenpox can cause localized damage to collagen forming depressed scars.

DERMAROLLER is a simple instrument having a wheel covered with multiple fine small sterile needles on it. When rolled on to skin it creates micro channels into skin and stimulates new collagen formation in deeper layers of skin. Medicines for skin and hair can be applied immediately to treated skin surface which penetrates deeper in the skin and enhance the treatment effects.

Procedure of dermaroller therapy

A topical anesthetic cream is applied on the area of skin to be treated for an hour to make the procedure comfortable. After cleansing the area thoroughly, dermaroller is passed on the skin gently in multiple directions. Redness and tiny bleeding points can be noticed on the skin at the end of the procedure. At the end of procedure, antibiotic cream is applied and patient can leave the clinic. Strict sun protection is advised before and after the procedure for optimal results.

MICRONEEDLE RADIOFREQUENCY (MNRF) is latest advance in the field of collagen induction therapy. In this technique RF energy is directly delivered to deeper layers of skin with the help of small sterile needles. The procedure is almost similar to dermaroller therapy but the results obtained are much superior.

Advantages of MNRF therapy
  • Combined benefits of micro-needling and RF energy
  • Precise and controlled depth of needle penetration
Indications for Micro-needling therapy
  • Acne and chickenpox scars
  • Open pores
  • Lax skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hair fall and baldness

concept skincareBotox® (Botulinum toxin) is a purified protein derived from bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. It blocks the release of a chemical in the nerve which causes muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. It was initially used and approved by FDA for spasm of the delicate eye muscles. Since then it has been successfully and safely used for various dermatological and non dermatological indications.

Most common use of Botox® in dermatology is for wrinkles. Wrinkles can be static or dynamic. Wrinkles which are formed by overuse of muscle or repetitive facial expressions are called Dynamic. They include frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. By relaxing these hyperactive muscles, Botox® irons out wrinkles and smoothens out facial expressions.

How safe is Botox®?

It has been safely used over 20 years for various indications with low incidence of reversible side effects. Mild bruising may be experienced by few patients but disappears in few days. Other uncommon mild side effects include headache, nausea, flu like symptoms or temporary eyelid drooping.

Is Botox® painful?

It is given in tiny quantities with smallest possible needles. Patient may experience mild discomfort but not pain. If required, anesthetic cream can be applied in the areas to be injected to make it more comfortable.

How do I know whether Botox® is right for me?

Anyone between ages of 18 to 75 is a potential candidate for Botox® treatment. Meet our dermatologists to know whether you are the right candidate and allay your fears about the procedure. Botox® injections should be avoided if you have active infection at the injection site or you have neurological conditions like myasthenia gravis or EATON LAMBERT syndrome or you are on certain drugs.

What are dermatological indications of Botox®?

Dynamic wrinkles: Frown lines, Crow’s feet, Forehead lines, Bunny lines, Pebbly chin, Jaw line and Neck bands

Hyperhidrosis (Increased sweating) in axillae, palms and soles.

Non-Surgical skin tightening

With age, skin all over the body tends to loosen and sag. It becomes most obvious on the face and neck. Skin laxity may occur after delivery or due to sudden weight loss. A face lift or neck lift are permanent solutions, but they involve surgery while most women prefer a non-invasive solution. The non-surgical method of skin tightening involves heat reaching deep into the skin.

The heat causes some immediate tightening of the tissue under the skin and signals the body to start making new collagen. As the new collagen forms, skin starts to appear firmer, tighter and younger. Various technologies are used for skin tightening and non ablative radiofrequency is one of the most common.





Indications

  • Firming of forehead and cheeks
  • Lift the eyebrows
  • Tighten jowls and neck
  • Reduce wrinkles around the eyes
  • Diminish the appearance of cellulite
  • Tighten skin on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and thighs

How is it performed?

Once the patient is ready, heat is sent deep into the skin through a probe of a radiofrequency device that is passed over the skin to be treated. Usually, multiple passes are made. The procedure may last anywhere from a few minutes to 1 hour depending upon the area to be treated.

After the procedure, the treated area is generally red and may be mildly swollen which subsides in couple of hours. You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure to hide the redness. While special care is not required after the procedure, sunscreen should be applied to protect the skin.

Usually it requires 4 to 6 treatment sessions every fortnight or month, to see visible results. You may see some improvement after the first treatment itself but gradual improvement will be noticeable over 6 months. In general, results of skin tightening may last about 1 year or longer depending on your age and lifestyle.
