It’s no secret that there’s room for improvement in our health care system and our approach to wellness. Our skin is the symbol of youth and health, and deserves the best treatment possible. To help clear the air on the skin concerns we are all stressing about, we picked the brain of Dr. Madiha Rao, renowned expert dermatologist. Here are your top skin and hair care questions, answered!
What are the reasons for acne?

Acne is normally seen in teenagers most of the times because of hormones, bad hygiene and bad eating habits, amongst other reasons.

How can we cure it?

First and foremost, I would advise people with acne to visit a doctor, and then treat the acne according to what the doctor says. The best way to avoid getting acne is to maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes good hygiene, a wholesome diet and exercise. Make sure to keep your face and hands clean all the time.

What treatments can one get from you?

We offer chemical peels, laser for acne, hydra facials, microderm abrasions- which are all really good for acne!

What is the best way to combat blackheads and white heads at home?

At home, you can use a good face wash, or creams that specifically fight the appearance of blackheads or whiteheads, and most importantly, you should maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Can Hyper Pigmentation be cured with topical treatment?

Yes, we can cure hyper pigmentation with topical treatments. There are different sunblocks, creams and serums which help with curing this problem. We would specifically advise Vitamin C serums, sunblocks with high SPFs and using retinols.

Can large pores shrink with home remedies or do we need to get a treatment done?

Yes, large pores can be treated with home remedies. You can use aloe vera gel as a moisturizer, avoid using oily products on your face if you have large pores, use good toners and refrigerate them, and applying ice cubes over your face, can eliminate your large pores.

What do you recommend to prevent dark circle?
Not getting enough sleep, unhealthy eating habits and the technology in which we have immersed ourselves, are all factors that can give rise to the under eye circles. Sleep and eat properly, avoid staring at your phone screen for a long period of time, and use good eye creams to prevent the appearance of dark circles.
How can we treat acne scars at home and what are the treatments available?

As soon you notice the appearance of acne, consult a doctor so that the scarring on your skin goes away. Otherwise, you can treat scars at home by using medication or hyaluronic acid creams. We also have treatments such as lasers, chemical peels, scarlet laser and CO2 fractional lasers to help remove acne scars.

Facial Hair is a very common issue with women these days and they opt for threading or waxing or even shaving. What would you recommend?

We  would not recommend going for threading or waxing. Laser treatments are recommended for facial hair. Alternatively, some creams are available in the market that help reduce hair growth.

What is the more suitable age to go for laser hair removal?

We do not advise getting laser hair removal at a very young age. Normally it is advised after puberty.

Your most recommended skin care essential?

That would be a vitamin C serum, lotion or cream that you can apply. It is not just an anti-ageing treatment, it can help you with spots and scars as well. And the sooner you start using it, the better the results are. Serums can be used in the morning or evening, under your sunblock- it really helps your skin!
