Dr. Navjot Singh Arora provides Chemical Peeling Treatment in Dwarka - Dermaheal
Chemical Peeling In Dwarka
Chemical Peeling is the most commonly used dermatologic procedure that can be carried out on an OPD basis, it helps in promoting the effect of other medicines and thus is highly recommended by dermatologists.

A chemical peel is a technique used to remove the outermost layers of the skin (in a controlled manner) with the help of a chemical solution.

The nature of the chemical used determines the depth of the peeling and also decides the indication of that peeling agent.

Most common indications of chemical peels are Acne, Acne Marks & Scars Hyperpigmentation problems like Melasma, Tanning and Freckles.

Dermaheal has developed its own peeling mechanism where different peeling agents are combined to give best results to our patients according to their skin problems. These have been designed specially for the Indian skin type.

Peeling for Acne
According to the severity and chronicity of the Acne, Acne Marks & Acne Scars for a particular patient, we use a 3 to 4 step sequential peeling mechanism to give desired results. Peels used for this indication are -

Black Peels (Theraderm Inc. Imported from South Korea)
Salicylic Peels
Pyruvic Peels
Retinol (Yellow) Peel
The aforementioned peels can be used in different combinations or solitarily depending on the severity of Acne, Acne Marks & Scars and Patient skin type.

Peeling for Hyperpigmentation (Melasma)
In Indian skin the most common hyperpigmentation problem is Melasma, which occurs in the butterfly region of the face surrounding the nose, most commonly observed in the females of reproductive age group. This condition is very resistant to conventional medical treatment. Peels have come a long way to help Melasma patients to improve their quality of life and their social interaction by acting on the deeper layers of the skin where most creams and lotions can't penetrate. Peels used for this indication are -

Pyruvic Peels
Phenol-TCA Combination Peels
Glycolic Peels
Retinol (Yellow) Peels
Lactic Peels
The aforementioned peels can be used in different combinations or solitarily depending on the patient skin type and ongoing treatment protocol.

Skin White Patches and Vitiligo Treatment in Dwarka - Dermaheal
Vitiligo Treatment In Dwarka
What is Vitiligo
Vitiligo is a form of a chronic skin disorder which can easily be diagnosed by its characteristic appearance of white patches on the skin as the skin begins to lose its pigmentation.

These blotches can occur on any part of skin, however most common areas are face, neck, hands, eyes, mouth and foot.

Vitiligo can be treated by medications, phototherapy, laser and in certain cases surgical transplantation (tissue grafting and cellular grafting) is also advisable.

What causes vitiligo?
Melanin is the pigment which determines the color of our skin and hair.
The cells responsible for producing melanin (Melanocytes) are unable to function in case of Vitiligo thus causing loss of color of skin.
These white areas can either be localized or can continue to grow and are easily noticeable.
Melanocytes can be reintroduced to the affected areas via various methods to treat vitiligo.

Impact Of Vitiligo On Patients
Though vitiligo does not cause any serious impact on patient’s overall physical health and life expectancy, it can adversely affect patient’s psychological well-being.
Patient’s often feel insecure and anxious about their appearance which results in the development of antisocial behavior.
Younger patients are under constant emotional stress.
Mixed emotions of shame and fear often leads to depression.


Role Of Phototherapy
Derma heal Skin and Hair Clinic offers its patients the latest and best possible treatment modalities
We are equipped with a Narrowband UV-B (NB-UVB) chamber which works on whole body upto a great extent in cases of Generalized Vitiligo.
NB-UVB is an upright in-office booth which has a number of lamps that emit ultraviolet light thereby inducing re-pigmentation.
This device can be used in cases of both adults as well as children and does not cause any major side effects.
This treatment procedure is safe for both adults as well as children and generally requires 2-4 sessions weekly.
Phototherapy when combined with medications yield satisfactory results. Usually, prolonged treatments are required to attain better results.

Benefits Of Phototherapy
Significant improvement in the quality of life has been observed in the patients of generalized vitiligo undergoing phototherapy when combined with medications.
With phototherapy going on, the required doses of medicines gradually decreases thus decreasing the chances of long term side effects of medicines.
Patients experience a boost in their self-esteem as they keep on witnessing better results per session.
Phototherapy aids to prevent the formation of new patches thereby helping patients regain the confidence to face the world.

EXCIMER THERAPY
Excimer Therapy is an advanced technology that helps to treat skin diseases like vitiligo, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis which are usually difficult to treat conditions as there are very limited treatment options available for such skin conditions. This therapy is gentle as well as effective when followed with strict continuation.

The Excimer laser delivers a concentrated beam of UVB light through a hand piece directly to the white patches on the patient’s skin.

Laser Hair Reduction in Dwarka With Experienced Dermatologist Dr. Navjot Singh Arora
Laser Hair Reduction In Dwarka
Gone are the days of waxing, threading, epilating and hair removal creams, Laser hair removal is the latest and most advanced method of hair reduction and offers several benefits over the other methods



How it works?
Laser emits a concentrated beam of light which is absorbed by melanin (pigment present in the hair).

This light energy further converts into heat energy resulting in the destruction of hair follicles thereby preventing the growth of hair in future. However multiple sessions along with maintenance sessions are required as only the hair in their growth phase are actively targeted by the laser at a time.

About the Procedure
Triple wavelength diode laser used at Dermaheal is U.S. FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) approved, to ensure better results in fewer sessions.
A diode laser with 810nm is the gold standard for hair reduction.
After shaving and marking the area to be treated, cooling gel is applied before giving laser shots
There may be a warm sensation in some areas and pin-prick sensation in others where the hair is thick and coarse. Cooling the skin again after laser shots, further makes the sessions more comfortable.
The time required for the treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated.
The intervals between each session depends on the growth of hair (ranging from a few weeks to a few month).
As the number of sessions progress, the gap between each session keeps on increasing.

What to expect?
Around 80-90% hair reduction is expected after 6-8 sessions, especially in female patients.
More sessions are required in male patients.
Every subsequent session results in delayed hair growth and reduced density of hair.
Laser hair reduction can be done either on small sections or on full body on both men and women.
Coarse hair decrease in number and even if some of them remain, they turn fine and thin which are easily bleachable.
Maintenance sessions may be required varying from case to case.

At Dermaheal Skin and hair clinic
Get rid of unwanted hair with laser hair reduction and say hello to your hair free skin.
To enquire in detail about Laser Hair Reduction and other cosmetic treatments best suited for your individual needs, schedule an appointment with our trusted and experienced dermatologist Dr. Navjot Singh Arora at Dermaheal Skin and Hair Clinic, Dwarka Sector 7, Delhi.

Photofacial Treatment done by Dr. Megha Modi at Twachaaclinic
Photofacial Treatment
Photo facial, using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, is a skin brightening and tightening laser facial in which a special bandwidth of light focuses on melanin, collagen, and haemoglobin. The light generates a special type of heat that helps to decrease melanin; thereby, lightening pigmentation and also stimulates collagen resulting in tightening and rejuvenating ageing skin. Another benefit achieved by this light is in shrinking dilated capillaries in the skin thereby reducing redness and improving conditions such as Rosacea. Complete treatment involves at least 3-4 sessions and this can be combined with other treatments in between the sessions to give maximum results.

For how long does it take for laser Photofacial treatments to work?
Most people require 3-5 months, which contains a series of 3-5 treatments about 1 month apart. You should see some enhancement with each therapy. The more sun damage or redness you have, the more probable it is to need a full 5 treatment sessions.

Do IPL Photofacial treatments hurt?
There may be moderate discomfort throughout the treatment, but many individuals tolerate removal of dilated blood vessels or age spots/freckles as well as fine lines quite easily.

How long does each visit normally take?
Treatment typically take 30-90 minutes, depending on the size of the therapy area.

What results can I expect from Photofacial or Photorejuvenation treatment?
After your initial treatment you can anticipate to see some redness, darkening of brown spots, and in some cases light swelling. These symptoms will go away in several hours to one week. Makeup could be promptly used, if wanted. After the treatment, your skin will feel smoother as well as have a more even tone. A gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing, age spots, as well as removal of fine lines and wrinkles will certainly be much more visible after each treatment.

Will the IPL Photofacial treatment make me more sensitive to the sunlight?
No, it will not. You could have the treatment done at any time of the year. You can apply sun block as advised which will also minimize redness, brownish spots, creases etc.

Does the Photofacial have any type of side effects?
The primary adverse effects are mild, temporary swelling, inflammation, redness, slight darkening of brown spots, crusting, as well as an occasional bruise or tiny surface blister (like a sunburn blister).
