FAQ

“These are few commonly asked FAQ by our customers regarding hair, skin and bodyslimming.”

Psoriasis is a scaly skin eruption that often has a genetic basis. There are many different versions of psoriasis. Chronic, previously treatment-resistant, plaque psoriasis may respond to a series of excimer laser treatments.
Treatment may be faster than most currently available treatments and is undertaken in a series of laser sessions. It is absolutely painless; improvement is the general rule. Occasional touch-up booster sessions may be required.

Sun spots are flat brown marks most commonly found on the face, hands and chest, and are the result of cumulative sun exposure. Sun spots may also be referred to as liver spots or sun freckles.

The most common cause of hair loss is heredity. Men and women inherit the gene for hair loss from either or both parents. In men, the hormone dihydrotestosterone causes a gradual miniaturisation and eventual loss of hair follicles that are genetically susceptible. The mechanism of female pattern hair loss is not clearly known. The time of onset, extent, and rate of hair lossvaries from person to person. Men and women exhibit hereditary hair loss differently. Severe illness, medications, malnutrition, or vitamin deficiency can accelerate this process. When applied incorrectly, permanent hair colour and chemical relaxers damage the hair and follicle to the extent that hair loss can be permanent. Causes of hair loss do not include wearing a hat, excessive shampooing, lack of blood flow, or clogged pores.

The transplanted hair is removed from one area of the body (donor site) and transferred to another (recipient site).The transferred tissue is not “rejected” as it is not a foreign tissue. The transplanted hair maintains its own characteristics; colour, texture, growth rate, and curl, after transplantation and regrowth. The vitality of the grafted follicle is maintained by the rich blood supply to the scalp. Originally many years ago, large circular grafts (commonly called ‘plugs’) containing 15-20 hairs were transplanted resulting in noticeably unnatural results. Over years, instruments and techniques have been developed that allow hair transplant surgeons to achieve truly natural results by transplanting large numbers of small grafts very close together. We have found that hair grows from the scalp in groups of one, two, or three (and rarely, four) hair follicles, called “follicular units.” We can transfer these groups of follicles, called “follicular unit grafts,” after eliminating the excess surrounding tissue.

Male pattern hair loss can occur as early as 15, although it begins anywhere from the 20’s and the early 30s. Familial history may help determine the same. Alopecia Areata and Telogen effluvium can occur in younger children as well.

Yes, hair loss can occur due to improper care such as use of faulty hair care products like shampoos, conditioners, gels, hair dyes and also due to improper hair styles such as repeated tugging of hair in to ponytails repeated combing etc.

A number of infectious and infection related conditions can contribute to hair fall. The commonest one seen in Indian Populations are ring worm and Piedra-Fungal infections, folliculitis- bacterial infection, Demodex Folliculorum infection, Seborrheic Dermatitis etc. These infections affect the hair fibre resulting in brittle hair, breakage and bald patches of skin in the affected area. In severe cases they permanently damage the hair follicle.

Smoking does affect in an indirect way. It increases the blood pressure and decreases the oxygen in the human body. Decreased blood circulation leads to rapid hair shedding and dryness. Excessive alcohol intake on the other hand depletes zinc from the system needed for hair growth so should be taken in moderation.

Hair Transplant is a surgical technique that involves moving donor hair follicles which are genetically resistant to balding to the recipient balding areas of the scalp. The transferred tissue is not rejected as it is not foreign tissue. It retains its own characteristics, color, texture, growth rate and curl after transplantation and re-growth. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness.
