Xantholesma : Fat over eyelids is treatable

XANTHOLESMA : FAT ON EYELIDS

Eyes  are gateway to one’s inner self.  It better be beautiful. Fat deposits around eyes may spoil their beauty . Lets  know everything about them .

WHAT IS XANTHOLESMA?

Deposition of fat on eyelids skin, both upper and lower is called Xantholesma.

HOW DOES IT HAPPEN?

There is no reason behind it. Many may be having high cholesterol levels in blood. But the deposition in skin can happen with or without high cholesterol deposition.

HOW CAN IT BE REMOVED?

There are multiple ways to remove a Xantholesma.

Best modality in my last 10 years of experience has been surgical excise and suturing. Under local anesthesia the skin containing fat is removed and sutured. Sutures are removed after 7 days. It’s safe since surgery is just limited to skin.

Laser ablation or ablation with radiofrequency or chemical ablation with 70% TCA are other modalities. These later modalities may not treat every time and run the risk of leaving a fibrotic scar. Also chances of recurrences on the same place are very high.

Advantages  with surgical excision is, recurrence never happens on the same place. And for sure the lesion would be gone.

Xantholesma : Sutures are hardly visible after the treatment.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES SURGICAL EXCISTION TAKE?

Depending upon the number of xantholesma lesions and their width, it can take anywhere between half an hour to an hour.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME OR AFTER CARE POST SURGICAL REMOVAL OF XANTHOLESMA?

Slight pain and swelling may or may not be there for next few days. A course of anti inflammatory and antibiotics is prescribed by the doctor. Person can return to work, the next day. There is no rest period involved.

IS THE SURGICAL EXCISION FO XANTHOLESMA SAFE AROUND EYES?

Yes, absolutely. Since treatment involves only skin. We are not going deeper than that. Surgery is rendered very safe. It doesn’t have any long term after effects.

WILL XANTHOLESMA REMOVAL HURT?

No, since done under local anesthesia, procedure is rendered comfortable. 

WILL  PILLS OR CREAMS NOT WORK FOR XANTHOLESMA REMOVAL?

No, no oral pills or creams would work to remove Xantholesma.

CONCLUSION :  Fat deposits on eyelids is calledXantholesma. They may appear without any cause or due to high bloodcholesterol. Surgical excision done under local anesthesia is the best cure.Laser or chemical ablation can be done but are not very successful.

5 MYTHS ABOUT PIMPLES

Everybodyseems to be having their own cure for acne. Not everything works. Some maydamage skin further. Let burst certain myths surrounding pimples.

  1. Pimples affects only teenage: False.  Acne or pimples can affect all age groups. Right from a one year old child to middle age to old people. Though reasons of occurrence can be different. In teenage it’s more of over activity of oil glands, in middle age they occur under influence of androgenic hormones.

Proper cream and oral pills as prescribed by your dermatologist would help. So just don’t rely on face washes for cure. The contact time of medicine in face washes with skin is too short to give any visible result.
Face Wash is just 5 percent o anti acne treatment.
  1. Anti – pimple facials would work: False. Oily creams and massage is a big no for pimples.Thus, keep steer away from facials when you have acne, else it would surely flare.

Saloon Facials would flare up acne with a creamy massage.
  1. Betnovate is the treatment : False. Betnovate is a steroid which may initially cure acne, but the moment you leave it, explosive flare up of acne would happen. If one uses Betnovate for long, it may lead to excessive hair growth and permanent darkening of face.
Betnovate : It would treat the pimples initially but they would flare up the moment you stop using them. 
  1. Colgate would help them heal better: Please don’t resort to any of the unscientific measures for healing acne. They may leave a worse scar.

               DIY : MAKE NATURAL CREAM AT HOME                                        

Natural ingredients are always welcome. Skin would love to be pampered with natural stuff.  Making a batch of cosmetic at home can be super fun. Ingredients are under your control. Customization can happen according to one’s need.

So, let’s get started.

MAIN TWO INGREDIENTS:

All you need is Aloe Vera gel and oils. Blend them well. Your cream is ready. Yes it’s that’s easy.

Oils and Alovera

In case of dry skin one can go for concoction of oils like; almond oil, vitamin E oil, coconut oil, castor oil, mustard oil, flaxseed oil. Amount of each oil can vary. One can choose according to one’s need.

Normal or oily skin people can choose the lighter oil. Avoid heavy oils like castor oil.

There is no fixed quantity. One can adjust and play around with that. People with oily skin can have more of aloevera and less of oils. On the other hand, people with dry skin can have the other way round.

Blend Oils and Alovera gel well to form a cream

PRESERVATIVE :

Since our preparation has a water base: aloe vera, adding a preservative is must. Few drops of liquid 0.5% Germall plus would be enough.It’s a broad spectrum preservative. Rough guide would be: add 1gm Germall plus to 100 gm of product.

FRAGRANCE:

Adding few drops of essential oils add a nice aroma to your preparation. People with extremely sensitive skin are better off without essential oils. For essential oils are known to cause allergy in some. In caseyou are not allergic, go ahead and add some.

Emulsifiers are not needed. Just blend aloe vera and oils well. Blending them well is a must.

People suffering from eczema, allergic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis must apply these hydrating creams at least twice a day.

Flax seed oil contains omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Excellent for repairing damaged skin.

Vitamin E is an excellent antioxidant.

Coconut oil is great hydrating agent.

In case rancid aroma starts coming, that means oils have oxidized. Better to discard and make a new batch.

One can put them into different jars or case. Gift them toyour loved ones. And enjoy using them for yourself.

GUIDLINES FOR CHOOSING A SUNSCREEN:

A good sunscreen should have the following features:

1. BROAD SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN

a) Presence of ingredients giving protection against UVA rays ( oxybenzone , avobenzone)

b) Presence of ingredients giving protection against UVB rays (octinoxate , salicylates)

Sunrays contain UVA and UVB. A good sunscreen should contain ingredients giving protection to both. If it has both the ingredients, broad spectrum sunscreen would be printed on it.

2. Presence of both organic and inorganic components

Organic: work by absorbing UV rays (UVA and UVB filters mentioned above)

Inorganic: work by reflecting UV rays (zinc oxide, titanium dioxide)

3.  SPF (Sunburn protection factor)

SPF is Measure of protection against UVB rays

SPF                                         % of protection provided

15                                           93

30                                           97

50                                            99

Minimum SPF should be 15 and maximum 50. SPF beyond this is just a marketing gimmick.

4. PA

PA Measure of protection against UVA rays. Given as PA +, PA ++, PA+++. More the stars,  more the protection.

5. Substantivety is Sweat or Water Resistant

Sunscreen is labeled as: water resistance if it maintains SPF after 40 minutes of water immersion.

Sunscreen is labeled as: very water resistance if can persist after 80 minutes of water immersion.

If you indulge in water sports or activities which entails lots of sweating better chose the ones with water resistant labeled on them.

6. Non Comedogenic or Non Oily

People with oily skin should choose one with non comedogenic labeled on it. It means it has lesser chances of leading to pimple formation.

People with dry or normal skin can chose one meant for their skin type. Skin type would be mentioned on sunscreen.  

7. Non allergic:  means it has lesser tendency to cause allergic reaction. People with sensitive skin should buy one with no fragrance.

8. Presence of micronized technology leading to better cosmetic appeal:

Certain ingredients like titanium dioxide are responsible for whitening effect seen after sunscreen application. If present in micro sized particles then whitening effect mitigates. Thus, sunscreen has a  better cosmetic appeal.

GUIDLINES FOR USING A SUNSCREEN

 WHAT IS THE RIGHT QUANTITY OF APPLICATION?

 Tablespoon method has to be followed:

Little more than half table spoon for: face, neck, each arm respectively.

Little more than one tablespoon for:  each leg, back, chest

Total of 35 ml or 6 tablespoons for entire body.  It amounts to application of 2mg/cm 2.

2. Timings of application:

Sunscreen has to be applied at least 20 minutes before going out in sun for it takes that much time for a sunscreen to get start working. Once applied, it works only for 2 to3 hours, so one has to re apply it after every 3 hours. No need to wash face every time before reapplication.

3. Sunscreen use in children: Not recommended for infants younger than 6 months. Sunscreen application is considered safe after six months of age.

4. To enhance the cosmetic appeal: In case one feels oily even after applying  a non oily sunscreen , dab compact powder over face to absorb excess oiliness and get that matt finish. Choose micronized labeled sunscreen to avoid whitish tinge left after application of sunscreen.

CAN’T CREAMS AND PILLS REMOVE BLACK SPOTS?

No, because creams don’t penetrate deep enough into skin to remove them. Neither are they that strong to ablate a black lesion. Also when creams and lotion are used to burn something on skin, we cannot control their penetration into skin. Lasers are controlled, thus a better option.

HAIR FALL : CAUSES AND TREATMENT

Scalp has approximately 100,000 hair. Fall of upto 50 to 70hair per day is normal. Old hair keeps falling only to be replaced by new hair.Hair fall beyond 100 strands per day should propel one to seek medicalattention.

There could be various causes for hair fall. Finding thecause is the first step towards treatment.

  1. Nutritional deficiency: Lack of essential nutrients like iron, biotin, protein, vitamin D3 etc. in diet. People often claim to be very cautious and putting in every effort to eat healthy, but till the time one has these things in one’s kitchen – cooker, fridge and oven, one claim to be having nutritious diet falls flat since 87% of the nutrition is killed in food cooked in cooker. Similarly microwaves are strong enough to kill the nutrition in diet. Now did you realize why, almost everybody is having hair fall, dark circles, early whitening of hair, fatigue etc.

Chloroflorocarbons are supposed to be very dangerous for one’s health. These harmful gases are continuously emitted in the fridge. We keep food under these harmful gases and then consume them. Worst, after doing this day in and out we claim to be eating healthy.

SOLUTION: Add raw uncooked food to diet-sprouts, amla (Indian Gooseberry), almonds, dates, milk, soya, curd, lassi, gud(darker the gud better it is, whiter the gud bad it is) etc.

Take biotin supplements for three months after dermatologist prescription.

Get serum ferritin levels checked. In casethey turn out to be less than 40ng/dl, one is deficient in iron. Rememberdespite hemoglobin levels being normal one can have hair fall secondary to irondeficiency. Hemoglobin is the measure of iron in blood circulation, ferritin isthe amount of iron stores in body. If they are less, iron deficiency inducedhair fall would occur.

HAVE seeds, amla, dates, almonds etc every day .
  • Hormonal imbalance: Various hormonal imbalances can lead to hair fall.

Both, excess or less thyroid levels leads to hair fall. Get TSH, T3 AND T4 levels checked.

Polycystic ovarian disease: Excess of various hormones – Prolactin, FH, LSH, free testosterone, Insulin etc. leads to conglomeration of hair fall, obesity, acne, and irregular periods.

SOLUTION: A thorough checkup of all hormones and hormonal treatment balances the situation.

  • Androgenic Alopecia:It occurs due to hormone named testosterone. Here the amount of hormone is normal but the hair strands are sensitized to the hormone.Sensitized hair first gets thinned out and finally dies permanently. However it follows different pattern in male and females.

Male: Males start losing hair at the boththe frontal corners. Slowly the hair line recedes backwards.

Male : androgenic alopecia

Female: there is overall thinning of hairand widening of central partition. However there is no balding in women ever.Cheer up ladies!

Female pattern hair loss

SOLUTION:  Minoxidil 5% solution applied over scalp every night on dermatologist prescription would help further regression of hair.

  •  Chemical and heat damage: Advent of new era of hair treatments like rebonding, colouring, straightening comes with sure shot way to damaged hair.

SOLUTION: If you are fond of these treatments, get them only at the lower part of hair and never ever at the hair roots near scalp. Thus, one can prevent damage up to a great extent.

  • Stress: Stress releases various bunch of hormones which are bad for hair and skin.

SOLUTION: Resolve to take ten minutes off for pranayama (deep breathing exercises and meditation, travel to offbeat destinations, make time for your hobbies, write down your worries : it’s a great way to let all the bad emotions out which may be stifling inside making you uneasy.)

  • Recent illness: Any serious episode of illness, typhoid, malaria, surgery, hepatitis etc. will lead to severe hair fall three months after the illness. And not during or immediately after the illness.
  • Post pregnancy:A women gets amazing hair throughout pregnancy because of surge in estrogen hormone. Immediately post-delivery, she suffers from severe hair fall that’s because of sudden withdrawal of hormones. This hairfall lasts for 6 to 18 months. Nothing to panic, it all get normal in due course of time.
  • Crash dieting: Fad for size zero compels many to opt for crash dieting .It severely affects  there nutritional supply leading to hair fall.

SOLUTION: Popping up multivitamin pills to make up for the loss and gorging on healthy diet is the way out.

Hope this helped you figure out your causefor hair fall.

WHITE HAIR : CAUSES AND TREATMENT

Hair turning white before forties is a growing concern amongst youth. Continuous formation of oxygen free radicals in body due to stress, nutritional deficiency, heat and chemical exposure etc. is the prime reason. Oxygen free radicals exhaust the black color producing cells in hair giving rise to white hair. Thus, treatment should aim at reducing free radical formation and their continual flushing out from body.

WHITE HAIR

Resorting to various detoxification remedies on regular basis would help flushing them out. Details of various detoxification methods to be done at home are mentioned in our detoxification blog. To reduce their formation following things need to be followed:


1. Stress: Excess work and less energy to accomplish the same give rise to stress. A great deal of energy is lost by over thinking mind. Meditation is the best way to give some rest to mind and restore the lost energy. Pranayam like anulomvilom and kapaalbhati are other deep breathing exercises done regularly help control anxiety a long way.


2. Nutritional deficiency: Especially because of eating too much junk, packed food, bassi/stale food and consuming food kept in fridge or cooked in microwave and cooker.

Try to eat fresh and not bassi food cooked over three hours. Check our food blogs on our website for amazing ways to transform your food habits the healthy way without compromising on taste.

Try to add as much raw food as possible to your diet, vegetable soups, fruit, fruit juices, sprouts etc.

 
3. Chemical damage by shampoos and saloon treatments like hair colour, rebonding, straightening etc.

Switch to chemical free indigo leaves based hair dyes. Use SLS free shampoos.

4. Heat damage: Use of blow dryer and sun exposure, exposes hair to excessive heat.

To cut down the heat exposure by a blow dryer use the one with attached comb and restrict its use to 15 seconds every day. Using the one with attached comb gives you the advantage of blow drying the entire mane in 15 seconds thus reducing the heat exposure greatly. Cover hair with scarf when out in sun.

5. Another common observation is, people with sinusitis having white hair with greater frequency.

Do pranayam (deep breathing excercises ) regularly to cure sinusitis. Once it’s cured the occurrence of white hair would be halted.

TREATMENT

 
Allopathy doesn’t have an effective cure.

Ayurvedic remedy 
1. Take 50 gms of coconut oil, take 5 pieces of amla and heat the oil till amla turns black. Cool oil and store it in a bottle. Apply three times a week overnight before washing it next day.

2. Take 4 table spoon of Amla powder. Add water and lemon juice. Mix till a paste like consistency is formed. Apply for 20 minutes on hair and scalp before head wash. Wash it with plain water avoiding shampoo. Do it twice a week.

3. Eat lots of amla or amla juice every day.
