How to do skin care during festival

Diwali is here again. We brighten up our faces with a beautiful glow. Everyone wants to look their best, but unfortunately, they often end up looking at their worst due to the consumption of unhealthy rich food, stress due to hectic shopping, the pollution in the air due to incessant firecrackers and lack of time for skincare.

happy attitude to life and a stress-free mind is the most essential ingredient to get a special glow on skin, so you need to start making an effort to achieve that before you start the beauty routine. Having taken this initial step, let us move a step further. That is the skincare which is very important keeping in mind the added pollution and the stress.  

Precautions during Diwali :

Limit your sweet intake:  overdose on sugary and fried goodies, in a few days it'll start showing on your face -- breakouts, dull skin, weight gain, not to mention allergies thanks to the artificial colors and flavors that go into mass-produced sweets. Make sure to include plenty of fresh fruit and raw vegetables in your diet.

Don’t stop working out: Do not compromise on your health. Continue your exercise regime as usual and you'll be thankful at the end of the season that you didn't pile on the pounds.

Hydrate yourself: Use a water-based moisturizer frequently and drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin. Lukewarm water to which honey and lemon can be added takes away the puffiness of face caused by fluid retention at night.

Protect your skin from firecrackers: Stay at least six to seven feet away from lit fireworks. If you have sensitive skin, it's a good idea to tie a cotton scarf over your face while lighting or watching fireworks. Wash your face thoroughly with mild soap and water immediately afterward and follow up with a moisturizer. In case of burns, wash the area immediately with cool running water for 10 minutes or longer, till the burning sensation eases. Apply an antibiotic cream on mild burns and consult a doctor immediately.

Care from the skin : Excessive exposure to pollution can cause premature aging and wrinkles on the skin. Excessive humidity can cause acne eruption, fungal infections and a host of other skin diseases. Skin stays excessively sticky and greasy and should be washed every few hours with a gel face wash.

Basics of skincare:

Cleansing: Toxins from the body and pollutants from the environment give the skin a dull look. Instead of soap use a face wash. Gel or foam for normal to oily skin and crème cleansers for those with dry skin.

Makeup remover: For those using makeup, use extra makeup remover wipes prior to cleansing the face. Available with leading cosmetic brands, cold milk, as well as baby oil, is a good makeup remover especially for dry skins.

Moisturizing: Different skin types have different requirements. Choose from creams for dry skin, lotions for normal skin and gels for oily skin. No matter the skin type, always moisturize prior to sleeping.

Scrubbing: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells; but skin cells shed every 28 days so use scrub only once a week or once a month (depending on skin type). Use bran soaked in water, moong dal scrub or ones available in the market. Do not over scrub as it removes all moisture from the skin and may also harm the skin.

Masks: Fruits like papaya, banana have the capacity to dissolve toxins when applied, oily skin can use Multani mitti or clay pack.

Avoid cheaper formulas that tend to be less refined. And remember, contrary to popular belief, natural skincare is not always suitable for sensitive skin. You only have to be allergic to pollen to understand easily why natural can, in some cases, not be the way forward.'

Is Laser Hair Removal safe during Pregnancy?

In Pregnancy, belly is getting bigger and you can barely see your legs, also alone shave is very difficult.

Because of the changes in hormones during pregnancy, you may find more hair growth around the belly, nipples, or other unwanted places. If you don’t tweeze or shave, the excess hair will usually fall off after pregnancy.

Is It Safe To Undergo Laser Hair Removal While Pregnant?

Generally, laser hair removal is not conducted on women while pregnant, there are several reasons to avoid laser hair removal during pregnancy.

In the absence of research and due to the non-availability of information on the negative consequences of a pregnant woman and her growing baby, most doctors, and clinicians suggest postponing laser hair removal procedures until after the delivery. It is not good to be on the wrong side of caution, especially during pregnancy.  

Laser hair removal treatment uses non-ionizing radiation. This technique produces intense heat in order to remove the unwanted hair from its roots. It does not cause any cell mutation. The laser light beams penetrate into your skin for only a few millimeters. However, the non-iodizing radiation can be absorbed by the surrounding tissue in the area. Doctors are not sure about how this may affect your unborn baby.
  • For some pregnant women, laser hair treatment can cause mild pain, so medical professionals use numbing creams. This cream is not recommended during pregnancy as your body can absorb anything applied to the skin. 
  • Your skin gets very sensitive while you are pregnant. The laser hair removal treatment may cause pain, redness or irritation, leading to further skin problems.
  • The length and number of treatment sessions depend on your hair growth cycle. But the change in hormonal levels during pregnancy can sometimes shorten the hair growth cycle or stimulate dormant hair follicles. Therefore some women can experience quick hair re-growth while they are pregnant.
  • First of all the body hormonal changes can cause changes to melanin production, causing the treatments to be more painful and less effective.
  • The second reason is that the laser zapping can cause cramps, especially when done on lower abdominal and thighs.

The treatment is uncomfortable when performed on sensitive breasts and bikini area in the later stages of pregnancy. Also, the skin is usually very sensitive during pregnancy, and you are likely to experience irritation, redness, or pain in the skin.

Should You Postpone Laser Hair Removal Sessions Till Completion Of Pregnancy?

 If you are already in the middle of laser hair treatment when you conceive, it is good to postpone the procedure until after delivery. You could always opt for alternative hair removal methods. Even if you keep the procedure on hold, it will not hinder the progress achieved in the initial sessions.

Your doctor can decide whether to continue or postpone the treatment during pregnancy. You should also talk to him about the safety of alternative hair removal methods such as electrolysis, waxing, and shaving.

For more knowledge and skincare during pregnancy, you may contact Dr. Manju Keshari at KEMPS Skin Clinic. , Vaishali, Sec-4 Ghaziabad.

Birthmark Types, Causes, and treatment

Birthmark: Any mark, spot, or bump that is present in or around the time of birth on the skin of an infant is a birthmark. Mothers are fond of giving these rather romantic names such as angel's kisses, stork bites, or beauty marks. Most of these lesions are not particularly aesthetically desirable.

Types of Birthmarks:  Birthmarks can be categorized according to their composition.
  • Pigmented birthmarks: Marks as a result of excessive accumulations of melanin are called pigmented birthmarks since the great majority of them are brown to black. Other birthmarks appear lighter than the rest of the skin due to a relative lack of melanin.
  • Vascular birthmarks: Vascular birthmarks are composed of blood vessels and are called vascular birthmarks. They are generally red, blue, or purple. Other birthmarks are composed of lymphatic tissue (cystic hygroma), breast tissue, and epidermal tissue, which are often yellow to flesh-colored. 

Causes of birthmarks:  Most Birthmarks are probably due to defective migration of cells during fetal development. Once these cells start to multiply, they produce tissue with the characteristics of their cell type though they are not where those cells typically are located.

Is it possible to remove or fade Birthmarks?

It is now possible to treat many kinds of both pigmented and vascular birthmarks. The approach depends on the type of tissue involved and the risks versus the benefits of treatment. The pediatrician is an excellent source of information as to potential treatment options.

Treatment for Birthmarks:

The treatment of birthmarks depends on the nature of the tissue involved. Medical treatment can hasten the resolution of certain kinds of vascular birthmarks. Generally, measures that destroy the involved cells of the birthmark are required for both pigmented or vascular birthmarks. Either scalpel surgery, lasers, and rarely radiation can be helpful.

Many capillary birthmarks such as salmon patches and strawberry hemangiomas are temporary and require no treatment. For permanent lesions, concealing cosmetics might be helpful. Cortisone (oral or injected) can reduce the size of a hemangioma that is growing rapidly and obstructing vision or vital structures. Other oral medicines have been used experimentally with some success in these cases, as well.

Port-wine stains on the face can be treated at a young age with a yellow-pulsed dye laser for best results. Treatment of the birthmarks might help prevent psychosocial problems that can result in individuals who have port-wine stains.

Permanent red birthmarks might be treated with methods including:
  • Cryotherapy (freezing)
  • Laser surgery
  • Surgical removal

In some cases, birthmarks are not treated until a child reaches school age. However, birthmarks are treated earlier if they result in unwanted symptoms or if they compromise vital functions such as vision or breathing. KEMPS Skin Clinic, Vaishali Sec-4 provide treatment for birthmark. You may book a prior appointment and get the best treatment.

How to get glowing skin

Facials have always been synonymous with relaxation and healthy skin. However, the unending facial menu’s can be too much jargon and there is a huge gap between the qualities of the ingredients being used in the industry. All of this leads to information asymmetry between the customer and the skin clinic, mostly to the advantage of the skin clinic.

Let’s consider what we expect from a facial: The perfect facial should be relaxing, hydrating, stimulating, moisturizing and rejuvenating. Most beauty clinics would have 5 different facials to achieve what a single facial session should achieve.

However, there is some light at the end of this dark tunnel, in the form of Hydra-Facials. Also referred to Aqua Peeling or Hydro-Dermabrasion.

What are Hydra Facials?

 Hydra Facial itself as the medical-grade facial rejuvenation that cleanses, detoxifies, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates in one treatment that is appropriate for all skin types -- normal, oily, sensitive, aging. It also promises help with fine line and wrinkles, pore size, and hyperpigmentation.
  • Cleans and Exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal healthy new skin.
  • Peels gently to help loosen dirt and debris from pores without any irritation.
  • Automatically extracts impurities, and
  • Adds hydration with serums and antioxidants to nourish and protect.
Due to this multi-therapeutic approach, hydra facials are easily differentiated from other forms of skin rejuvenating and microdermabrasion (MDA) treatment procedures.

Why it is more appreciated than any other Facial: This facial is for on-the-go girls! Its multi-therapeutic approach combines various benefits into the time of a single facial session. Some of the merits of a 30 minute procedure are:
  • It targets various skin problems like blackheads, whiteheads, brown spots, acne, sun damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and the fine lines of premature aging.
  • Improves the overall quality of skin through the extraction of dead layers and cleaning of dirt and debris from the pores.
  • Improvements to facial tone and texture with less dyschromia (skin discoloration)
  • Hydrates and nourishes the skin for much softer and brighter look.
  • Stimulates the blood flow for much healthier-looking skin
  • No downtime, no irritation like other peels with instant results assurance
  • Bespoke Treatment for your skin’s requirement- Which means it is tailored to individual skincare needs.
When it’s not advisable: It is not recommended if you are looking for instant results for following skin conditions:
  • Deep lines
  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Deep Hyperpigmentation problems
  • Broken skin
Skin conditions like above more often demand invasive treatments. However, Hydra Dermabrasion can be used in combination or in conjunction with other invasive treatment to compliment the results.

At KEMPS Skin Clinic Hydra Facials is provided by an expert dermatologist, you may contact and book a prior appointment for better services.

What is oily skin and how to take care of it?

Oily skin is acne-prone skin with open pores, a shiny complexion, blackheads, and pimples. Because hormones affect oil production, anything that changes your hormone levels may affect your skin. ... To keep oily skin clean, wash your face a 2-3 times a day with plain soap and water.

Oily skin is firstly characterized by an overproduction of sebum. This protective oily substance is made by the sebaceous glands and its excess secretion is often visible and sometimes unattractive: shiny skin, enlarged pores, blackheads, or pimples. This is very common at puberty as a result of hormonal changes during which a testosterone derivative attaches to the sebaceous glands and increases sebum production. 

Several other factors influence sebum production by sebaceous glands:
  • Poor skin hygiene;
  • The use of cosmetics that irritate the skin;
  • Hormonal factors: adolescence, taking oral contraceptives, pregnancy, etc.;
  • Genetics;
  • Climatic conditions: heat and humidity, for instance;
  • Toxic substances: tobacco and pollution, for instance;
  • Stress, anxiety, fatigue.
·       Very oil skin has a shiny appearance, especially on the T zone (forehead, nose, and chin). As the pores are enlarged, the texture of the skin appears irregular. In too great a quantity, sebum can block pores and become a fertile ground for acne and other skin problems.

Here is what you can do to reduce the oily appearance of skin:

Cleanse it: Cleansing is the first condition that needs to be respected for good skin. If possible, wash your face twice daily with a very mild and unscented cleanser with a neutral pH. Some cleaning products are specifically formulated for oily skin types. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel instead of rubbing it vigorously. You can also apply a skin-toning lotion to tighten pores. Avoid those containing alcohol because they stimulate sebum production. Do not forget to remove your makeup every night before going to bed.  

Use Moisturize: Oily skin also needs to be moisturized. Some products that have an ultra-light texture, are without oil, and enriched with a sebum-regulating complex. Don’t worry. If you choose the right product, it will not add to your skin’s shine. It will actually have the opposite effect! Be wary of tinted creams because they can stimulate sebum secretion and the appearance of pimples.

Use sunscreen: Protect yourself from the sun’s rays with sunscreen suitable for oily skin types. Avoid tanning salons at any cost. Use a mild exfoliant twice a week. Give yourself a skincare treatment at a beauty salon from time to time. Ask the beautician to adapt the treatment your particular type of skin.

Eat Fresh: Adopt a healthy diet. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid fatty and sugary foods such as sausages, deli meats, chocolate, and fast foods. Drink plenty of water. Sleep well, avoid stress, and happily kick the smoking habit!

Remember, having oily skin does have some benefits. Those with oily skin tend to age slower. Oily skin tends to wrinkle less than those with dry or normal skin. To know  more about care of oily skin you may contact Dr. Manju keshari, Senior Dermatologist and Skin Specialist at KEMPS Skin Clinic Vaishali, Sec.4, Ghaziabad.

Hair removal on Sensitive Skin

Hair removal on sensitive skin always a big concern for users. There are some methods for hair removal which majorly used for hair removal:

1-Sugaring:  This method removed hairs from the root so you can be hair-free for weeks on the face or body. Made from all-natural ingredients, there's also less chance of skin irritation that artificial ingredients in wax often cause. Still, you should tell your technician if you have any allergies. The method using the paste (there's also sugaring gel) can remove hair as short as 1/16", You don't have to wait to the 1/4" hair length like with waxing. And because the paste removes in the direction of hair growth, it leads to minimal pulling on the skin, which means less pain and irritation. 

2- Shaving: Using a razor is a common and easy method of hair removal, and the one most people grow upon. For people with sensitive skin, it absolutely can create nasty side effects, but it definitely doesn't have to end in disaster. the main problem with shaving is the wrong products and tools being used. You want to use a razor with a built-in moisturizing agent and use shaving cream. If you already use it, look at the ingredients in the to shaving cream. Other times, an allergy to a common ingredient in shaving products can be the culprit. Finding the cause is key. 

3-Waxing:  Waxing could lead to extreme redness, peeling and scabbing. So there are some cases of skin sensitivity when you shouldn't wax at all. In other cases, you should only avoid a certain area.
Many times the thing that causes lots of redness, tons of pain, or bruising is the wrong type of wax. It can be the fact that it's wrong for the hair or area or that it's a poor quality wax. Other issues from waxing can be caused by the technician not prepping the skin correctly, or removing the wax the wrong way.

4-Threading: Threading is unique, in that it pulls hair out from the root with a thread. It doesn't use any chemicals or heat, so there's no need to worry about product allergies or burns.
Generally, it's gentle to the skin with good tech. And while people sometimes get bumps and redness, it often doesn't last that long. However, the downside to threading is that it's generally only done on facial hair—not anywhere else.

5- Laser Hair Removal:  Lasers use pulsed light to disable the follicle by targeting the pigment. Generally, you will feel some heat and a snapping against the skin. Sensitive skin will sometimes get overly red or swell. It's important to do a patch test to see how skin reacts. If you're getting it professionally done, let them know you have sensitive skin prior to beginning the process.

6-Electrolysis: For sensitive hair removal can be a source of fear and anxiety, getting rid of all or most of the hair permanently can bring great relief. Electrolysis is the only method that's FDA-approved for permanent hair removal, due to its great track record. It utilizes an electric current, and it's a match for all tones of skin and hair colors.

Vitamin C and its benefit on skin

Do you drink a glass of lemon water? Add green chilies to your salad at lunch? If so, your skin thanks you-not only for the healthy diet, but for making sure that you regularly intake vitamin C. Your body needs a variety of nutrients to look and function its best, of course, but C is a particularly important player.

It offers much more than the immune-boosting properties you probably already know it for; because a lot of C is stored in your skin, it helps rejuvenate and protect your complexion whether you get it from food or apply it topically. Simply put, vitamin C should be part of your skincare regimen—as important as washing your face or applying sunscreen. 

What is vitamin C?

As far as your skin is concerned, vitamin C is "a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals," explains by Seniordermatologist  Manju Keshri. "Because of its antioxidant properties, vitamin C provides your skin's naturally a new life its help in the regeneration process, which helps your body repair damaged skin cells fast."

How else does vitamin C benefit the skin?

Amazingly, vitamin C's skin-saving benefits aren't limited to its antioxidant status. It has plenty of other skin-healing properties that make it worthy of a permanent place in your medicine cabinet. For one, because it's highly acidic when vitamin C is used topically "the skin is triggered to heal itself by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are both naturally occurring protein fibers that help keep skin plump and firm. So, in helping to promote collagen production, topical vitamin C can help prevent premature aging of the skin.

IT HELPS KEEP SKIN STRONG: It's minimizing the appearance of fine lines, vitamin C also helps the surface of your skin appear smoother and firmer by activating cells called fibroblasts that make new collagen.

IT HELPS HEAL SKIN FAST: Cuts, burns and other injuries that lead to scar tissue need the help of vitamin C to repair damaged skin. The vitamin may also play a role in the formation of keratinocytes—cells needed to close up a wound on the skin’s surface. While increasing your vitamin C intake does not appear to speed up the repair process, not getting enough may delay healing.

HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU NEED?

The recommended daily dose of vitamin C for men is 90 mg; it’s 75 mg for women. Green peppers,  Broccoli, I orange juice, papaya, strawberries, and cantaloupe are all excellent sources. Here’s what happens when you apply vitamin C topically:

IT PROVIDES ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION.  Vitamin C provides your skin protective antioxidants that fight free radical damage and inflammation caused by the sun, pollution and other factors. The key is using a product that has the L-ascorbic acid form of vitamin C—the only one that can penetrate the deep layers of your skin. While using sunscreen is still the best way to prevent burns and the aging effects of the UV light, rubbing in a vitamin C-containing serum or lotion underneath delivers extra insurance by counteracting the small percentage of UV rays that can sneak through sunblock.

What is a TCA Peel and its benefit?

A chemical peel involves the application of toxic chemical solutions to the skin in a controlled manner, producing controlled tissue death. The desired depth of the wound is dependent upon the condition to be treated. After the peel, the skin regenerates. The damaged skin regenerates from deeper layers of the epidermis and from the superficial dermis.

Trichloroacetic (TCA) peel is a light chemical peel. Many people don't relish the idea of two weeks in hiding while waiting for their new skin. Less drastic types of peels were introduced in the 1980s, using trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This procedure hurts when performed, but peels more superficially than when phenol is used. The epidermis and superficial dermis peel, healing in five to eight days. The more superficial the peel, the fewer wrinkles are removed. 

TCA concentrations range from 15% to 50%, alone or in combination with other chemicals. Higher concentrations result in deeper peels. The TCA peel is useful for pigmentation irregularities, such as sun-damaged skin and discoloration from pregnancy. It helps wrinkles and other sun damage. Acne and large pores are improved. Even some premalignant conditions can be corrected.

Safety:
  • The TCA peel application process sometimes causes temporary side effects such as burning and discomfort.
  • After a chemical peel, you may experience redness and skin sensitivity. In rare cases, there is a risk of scarring and infection from a TCA peel.
  • Finding a licensed and certified health practitioner to perform the TCA peel will lower your risks of negative side effects.

Who is a good candidate for TCA peels?

Chemical peels can be superficial, medium, or deep strength. TCA peels are considered medium strength, meaning they should only be applied by a certified skincare professional. The ideal candidate for a TCA peel:
  • is not breastfeeding or pregnant
  • does not have a skin condition such as psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea
  • does not have a job that requires them to be outside
  • has no history of keloids or poor wound healing
  • will be counseled by the doctor beforehand about realistic expectations of the results

People who have taken the acne medication isotretinoin (Zenatane, Amnesteem, Claravis) should avoid chemical peels for a period of time after completing treatment.

Procedure for a TCA peel

The TCA peel treatment itself will probably take around 30 minutes. You will be instructed to lie down as the dermatologist applies the TCA solution to your skin.

Most people feel a burning sensation for the first few minutes of the procedure, followed by a stinging pain as the acid exfoliates and clears away the top layers of your skin.

The procedure is done in a single session. It may be recommended that you prepare your skin with certain products prior to a TCA peel to achieve better results.

If you are looking to achieve a certain result, multiple sessions may be required. It’s advised that you wait several months between chemical peels to allow your skin to fully heal.

You may be sedated during the TCA peel, according to what you and your dermatologist decide.

How does one prepare for a TCA peel?

Often it is suggested to pretreat patients with tretinoin cream for a period prior to the peel. People who get cold sores (herpes simplex infections) should start on antiviral medications like acyclovir (Zovirax) one week prior to treatment and continue taking these for two weeks after therapy to prevent reactivation of cold sores. All patients should be encouraged to use high SPF sunscreens prior to and after peeling. Those with darker skin may also require pretreatment with hydroquinone preparations.

What is wrinkle and how it treated?

Wrinkles are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin. They normally appear as people get older, but they can also develop after spending a long time in the water. some times Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, some medications and environmental and genetic factors affect when and where people will develop wrinkles.

Although all of our skin ages, sun exposure dramatically enhances the rate at which this occurs. Changes brought on by sun damage (photoaging) include dry skin (really roughness), sagginess, skin growths like keratoses, lentigos ("liver spots"), and wrinkles. Just compare the skin on the face and neck of a poorly pigmented farmer to the skin of his buttocks.

Causes  

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As people get older, their skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic, and less able to protect itself from damage. This leads to wrinkles, creases, and lines on the skin.

Environmental factors such as smoking can accelerate the development of wrinkles. Each time a person uses a facial muscle, a groove forms under the surface of the skin.

When a person is young, the skin springs back, but as they get older, the skin loses its flexibility. Springing back becomes harder and less frequent, resulting in more permanent grooves.
Treatment Procedural options:

·         Glycolic acid peels: These superficial peels can make a very slight difference in the intensity of fine wrinkles.

·         Deeper peels: These peels use ingredients like salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid and penetrate somewhat deeper into the skin. Deeper peels do a better job of smoothing fine lines. The deeper the peel, however, the greater the risk of side effects such as long-lasting pigment changes (changes in the color of the skin) and scarring. Such peels may require anesthesia. Mild sedation helps ease short-term but intense discomfort.

·         Microdermabrasion: This refers to "sanding the skin" with a machine containing silica or aluminum crystals; many estheticians offer this service, usually in "packages" of six or seven sessions. Microdermabrasion does not change skin anatomy, though it may make the face feel smoother. Cosmetic products marketed as "home microdermabrasion" are just mild exfoliants -- harmless but not likely to produce any meaningful change in wrinkles.

·         Dermabrasion: This is a true surgical procedure, often performed under general anesthesia. The treating physician uses a rotating instrument to sand the skin down. Depending on a great deal on the skill and experience of the operator, dermabrasion can result in excellent improvement but can also produce significant side effects, including scarring and permanent changes in skin color.

·         Laser resurfacing:  Using instruments such as the carbon dioxide and erbium lasers, physicians can achieve results similar to those of dermabrasion with greater reliability and precision. A medical professional passes the laser several times over the area to be treated until the damage reaches the middle of the dermis, the skin's second layer. This helps stimulate the body's natural collagen synthesis (production), which plumps up sagging skin and wrinkles. Some dermatologists perform laser resurfacing under "conscious sedation," in which the patient remains awake and receives intravenous medications to calm and ease the pain.

KEMPS  Skin Clinic provides treatment for wrinkles at very minimum cost. Usually, 3-4 sitting required for it. You may book a prior appointment for better treatment.

What are the moles?

Moles are an abnormal collection of pigmented cells, the cells which give color to the skin. Moles may present since birth or may appear at any age. The color, shape, and size may differ. They may vary in size, small to large, flat to raised and light brown to dark pigmented or black in color. Some moles may have hairs.  Mole can be removed by these techniques.

Cutting / Excision

With this type of skin moles treatment, a local anesthetic is applied to the mole, which is cut out along with a small area of the surrounding skin with a scalpel or surgical scissors. Some moles may have cells that have grown underneath the top layer of skin. Cutting these out may require a few stitches to close the skin, which can leave a small scar that will fade over time.

Shave removal  

Some skin moles can be shaved down with a scalpel. The area gets numbed with a local anesthetic beforehand, and usually, only a small pink mark is left after the removal.

A surgical shave is a short procedure in which the mole is shaved down with a scalpel. To reduce discomfort, the area is numbed with a local anesthetic prior to the procedure so most patients don’t feel discomfort. Usually, only a small pink mark is left after the shaving takes place. This procedure is most suitable for raised moles.

Surgical shaves are typically utilized when doctors are concerned about a mole, but not enough to feel it needs to be completely removed, just enough to biopsy it. This is useful for diagnosing cancers such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma.

Freezing

Moles that are non-cancerous and haven’t grown to the deeper layers of skin can be frozen off using liquid nitrogen. This type of skin moles treatment may leave a small blister on the skin but is a relatively simple outpatient procedure.

Laser Removal

Smaller, non-cancerous moles that don’t protrude above the surface of the skin may also be removed with a laser treatment. This skin moles treatment uses intense bursts of light radiation to break down the mole cells in the skin. This method usually takes two or three treatments to eradicate the mole. While excision and cutting are the more common and recommended methods of removing moles, laser removal can be used for harder to reach areas, such as on the face or ears, and can be helpful for eliminating multiple moles at the same time.

Is surgical removal of a mole is painful?

The surgical removal is done under local anesthesia, I use to apply numbing cream before giving pricks, to make it almost painless. 

How much time takes in surgery?

Its hardly take few minutes, mole remove by punch and a fine suture is placed on the cut area. The suture is removed after 7 days.  

KEMPS Skin Clinic Vaishali sec-4, Ghaziabad provides advance Mole removal treatment. You may contact a booked appointment for Mole removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:
Precision: Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed: Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability: Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

Process of Laser Hair Removal:
Before starting the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

You and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection before the laser or light source used,. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.

Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.

When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You'll get treatments until hair stops growing.

Certified Dermatologist and technician is very important for Laser hair removal so before undergoing this treatment you must check qualification  and experience certificate says by Dr. Manju Keshri, senior dermatologist and skin specialist at KEMPS Skin clinic, Vaishali Sec.4. Kemps Skin Clinic also provides Laser hair Removal services you may book prior appointment for better treatment.

How to take care of your skin in Hot summer, some basic tips

Summers are back and so is dull and tired skin. The heat, the sweat, the dirt and those long hours in the sun can make our skin look a little rough. Our skin is just like a plant that needs extra care depending on the season to stay fresh, and not paying attention and taking care of your skin regularly may harm your skin.

We want our summer skin to be smooth, even in color, touchable and great looking. Instead, we often end up with cracked feet, sunburns, uneven tan lines, and sun damage, sometimes, even worse – rashes, bites, and weird-looking self-tanner. To avoid these pitfalls, and get summer skin that’s worth showing off, pay attention to these 5 skin essentials: 

Rejuvenate Your Skin with Nighttime Serums: Nighttime is the best for applying your expensive skincare products because our skin cells regenerate while we sleep. These serums basically help in the process of regeneration of skin cells and may help resolve different skin conditions. They are the best for providing deep hydration to the skin and bringing the glow. Their consistency and formulations usually allow them to reach the deepest layer of the skin.

Take care of your feet: Get that pedicure, but you can also ask your doc about using a prescription urea cream (40% urea, like X-Viate) — it works really well to smooth those heels.

Never Sleep with Makeup On: The major reason for dull skin, clogged pores, and rougher texture is sleeping with makeup on. Doing so in summers can cause the skin to break out as well. Therefore, if you want to maintain the glow and beautiful even tone of your skin, sleep with a cleansed and makeup-free face.

Stay safe in the sun: Use the expensive high-zinc (10-18%) sunscreen on your face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. You can use the drugstore stuff on the rest of your body, but be sure to reapply – don’t let yourself burn.

Exfoliate to Remove Dead Skin: If you’re looking for healthy glowing skin this summer, it’s essential to get rid of the dead skin that has been accumulating on your skin for a while. Exfoliation is, therefore, a must. It helps remove the dead skin cells and promotes the generation of new ones. New cells mean new and brighter skin. Exfoliate your skin one to two times per week. Use a mild exfoliation method for facial skin and don’t use harsh chemical-based defoliants especially if you have sensitive skin.

Avoid weird tan lines: If you use your sunscreen, you really shouldn’t have these. But if get them anyway, then cover up more with a cute summer shirt, a rash guard, a wetsuit, or swim tights.

Dr. Manju Keshri (skin care expert and Dermatologist) at KEMPS Skin Clinic, Vaishali says that above tips with consistency can help you achieve the glowing skin you have been longing for. Skincare, having some basics and following a healthy diet and lifestyle can definitely change the game of your skin too.

What is Phototherapy and what is its process?

Phototherapy, also called light therapy, means treatment with a special kind of light. It is prescribed to treat atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema.

The most common type of phototherapy used to treat eczema is narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) light. This uses a special machine to emit UVB light, which is the best part of natural sunlight for treating eczema.

Broadband UVB phototherapy, PUVA (Psoralen and UVA), and UVA1 are other forms of phototherapy that may be used in special circumstances to treat eczema.  

Phototherapy helps to:
  • Reduce itch
  • Calm inflammation
  • Increase vitamin D production
  • Ramp up bacteria-fighting systems in the skin
Phototherapy is used for eczema that is all over the body (widespread) or for localized eczema (such as hands and feet) that has not gotten better with topical treatments.

About 70% of people with eczema get better with phototherapy. Some people find that phototherapy puts their eczema in a “remittive” or “quiet” state long past the end of the treatment.

There are three main types of phototherapy used for skin disorders:

Broadband UVB: Also known as BBUVB, broadband UVB involves treating skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis with the full the spectrum of ultraviolet-B radiation.

Narrowband UVB: This involves using only a small portion/part of UVB radiation to treat the skin condition. It is more intense than broadband UVB and it’s the most common phototherapy option used by dermatologists.

PUVA: This stands for Psolaren ultraviolet-A. This involves combining UVA light with a certain kind of chemical called psoralen. Psolaren can be applied to your skin or you can take it as a pill. This chemical is found in plants and it makes your skin more sensitive to the light that’s to be applied. PUVA is more intensive and has more side effects than broadband or narrowband UVB, and is usually only resorted to when treatment with the others have been unsuccessful. It’s used for conditions like vitiligo, cutaneous T cell lymphoma, and psoriasis.

Process of Phototherapy:

Body Part or area that does not need treatment ought to be secured and ensured however much as could reasonably be expected and you will be requested that remove any garments that cover the skin being treated with UV. Some wellbeing steps include:
  • Apply Sunscreen to protect your neck, lips and the backs of your hands
  • Wear Special glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from UV light
  • To be cover the genitals in men
  • Apply Sunscreen for nipples and areola in women

What is Alopecia Areata (Hair falls in small patches)? And how do it treated?


Alopecia areata is a disease that causes hair to fall out in small patches, which can remain unnoticeable. These patches may eventually connect and then become noticeable, however. This disease develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.

Sudden hair loss may occur on the scalp and in some cases the eyebrows, eyelashes, and face, as well as other parts of the body. It can also develop slowly, and recur after years between instances.

The condition can result in total hair loss, called alopecia universalis, and it can prevent hair from growing back. When hair does grow back, it’s possible for the hair to fall out again. The extent of hair loss and regrowth varies from person to person. 

there are treatments that may help hair grow back more quickly and that can prevent future hair loss, as well as unique ways to cover up the hair loss. Resources are also available to help people cope with the stress of the disease.

What causes alopecia areata (Hair fall in patches )?

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease develops when the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign substances. Normally, the immune system defends your body against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria.

If you have alopecia areata, however, your immune system mistakenly attacks your hair follicles. Hair follicles are the structures from which hairs grow. The follicles become smaller and stop producing hair, leading to hair loss.

Researchers don’t know what triggers the immune system to attack hair follicles, so the exact cause of this condition isn’t known.

However, it most often occurs in people who have a family history of other autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes o thyroid disease arthritis. This is why some scientists suspect that genetics may contribute to the development of alopecia areata.

They also believe that certain factors in the environment are needed to trigger alopecia areata in people who are genetically predisposed to the disease.


There’s no known cure for Alopecia Areata, but there are treatments that you can try that might be able to slow down future hair loss or help hair grows back more quickly.

The condition is difficult to predict, which means it may require a large amount of trial and error until you find something that works for you. For some people, hair loss may still worsen despite treatment.
although there are some forms of treatment that can be suggested by doctors to help the hair re-grow more quickly.

The most common form of Alopecia Areata treatment is the use of corticosteroids, powerful anti-inflammatory drugs that can suppress the immune system. These are most commonly administered through local injections, topical ointment application, or orally.

Other medications that can be prescribed that either promote hair growth or affect the immune system include Minoxidil, Anthralin, SADBE, and DPCP. Although some of these may help with the re-growth of hair, they cannot prevent the formation of new bald patches.

It's better that you consult your nearest Hair and skin specialist, who check your condition of Hair fall and provide you best treatment says by Dr.Manju Keshari famous dermatologist and hair care expert at KEMPS Skin Clinic, Vaishali, Ghaziabad.

What is skin tanning?

Sun tanning or simply tanning is the process whereby skin color is darkened or tanned. It is most often a result of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or from artificial sources, such as a tanning lamp found in indoor tanning beds. People who deliberately tan their skin by exposure to the sun engage in a passive recreational activity of sunbathing. Some people use chemical products which can produce a tanning effect without exposure to ultraviolet radiation, known as sunless tanning.

How skin tans:

Moderate exposure to direct sunlight contributes to the production of melanin and vitamin D by the body, but excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays has negative health effects, including sunburn and increased risk of skin cancer, as well as depressed immune system function and accelerated aging of the skin. Some people tan or sunburn more easily than others. This may be the result of different skin types and natural skin color, and these may be a result of genetics. 

Several cases of tanning addiction have been reported by medical researchers. Though the mechanism by which tanning addiction occurs is unknown, some evidence indicates that the release of endorphins during the tanning process causes the pleasurable effects that underlie the addiction.

The term "tanning" has a cultural origin, arising from the color tan. Its origin lies in the Western culture of Europe when it became fashionable for young women to seek a less pale.

Overexposure to ultraviolet radiation is known to cause skin cancer, make skin age and wrinkle faster, mutate DNA and impair the immune system. Frequent tanning bed use triples the risk of developing melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, according to a 2010 study. The study suggests that the melanoma risk is linked more closely to total exposure than it is to the age at which an individual first uses a tanning bed. The International Agency for Research on Cancer places the use of tanning beds in the highest cancer risk category, describing them as carcinogenic to humans even if used as recommended.

Many people mistakenly believe that having a tan protects their skin against sunburn and UV damage. In fact, a tan offers minimal protection against sunburn (equivalent to around SPF 3, depending on your skin type), and will not protect your DNA from future UV damage. 

Tanning products and UV radiation:

A few tanning lotions include sunscreens, ranging from SPF 4 to 15. However, this protection only lasts for a short time following application and not for the duration of the fake tan, so sunscreen will need to be applied after two hours. Promoting a tanning product as being protective against UV radiation may be misleading.

All tanning products should be used in conjunction with the five sun protection measures – clothing, sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, shade, and sunglasses

De-tanning:-

De-tanning in simple words is the removal of the tanned skin and cells accumulated in our body after its exposure to the sun’s UV rays and pollution. This is not an alternative to get “fairer” skin. It is a process to remove the tanned skin to even out the skin tone.

There are numerous ways to de-tan, such as magical serums, effective peeling, bleaching of the skin, de-tan facials and body wraps and our favorite natural organic therapies. We may use tomato to remove the tan of our skin or we may use gram flour along with honey and the easiest one lemon with honey and curd. This takes the tan right off the face, giving us a supple, clearer and fresh resultant skin.

For De-tanning session you may contact to KEMPS Skin Clinic Vaishali, sec-4, Ghaziabad, they have expert staff and Cosmetologist to provide you better skin care.
