MELASMA TREATMENT WITH RACHEL CHEW CLINIC

Melasma shows up as brown spots or splotches on the forehead, cheeks, jaw line or upper lip. Melasma is essentially too much dark pigment. That pigment has been triggered by hormones and/or sun. Melasma can appear when a woman’s hormones change, whether through pregnancy, oral contraceptives, or hormone replacement therapy after menopause. Women of color are prone to melasma, and it is a significant problem for many. But people of any skin type can get melasma.

Once melasma has gotten started, for example during a pregnancy, it may become very difficult to treat afterwards. Also, it tends to become worse with subsequent pregnancies, particularly if the pregnancy is during the summer. If you do get melasma during the pregnancy, chances are it will resolve after delivery. But in a small percentage of women it gets worse over time and with exposure to sunlight.

To Treat Melasma

If you have melasma from hormones or prior pregnancies, please seek advice from your dermatologist first. Melasma can be difficult to treat.

(a) Sun block and Sun Protection
This is the most essential part of any treatment regimen for melasma, every single day, even cloudy days & indoors. The use of a broad spectrum sun screen that contains a physical blocking agent for example zinc or titanium dioxide.

(b) Double Protect – Wear Sun Protective Clothing

If your melasma is bad, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and wide-brimmed hats.

(c) Stay out of the sun in the mid-day

(d) Topical Products
Because melasma is a disorder of pigmentation, topical products that block the process of pigment production are helpful in the treatment of melasma. Pigment production is a complex process and there are many products that act at different steps in this process. No one product is 100% successful at preventing and treating pigment so often multiple different products are used as they all work at different steps in the process.

(e) Hydroquinone
Hydroquinone (HQ) is thought to improve pigment by inhibition of tryosinase, an enzyme critical for pigment production. It has been in use for over 50 years and has a long and well documented history of safety and efficacy in the treatment of pigment.

(f) Retinoids
Retinoic acid and its derivatives (Retin-A, tretinoin, retinol, adapalene, tazaratene) have been shown to reduce the pigment of melasma and sun damage. They act by stimulating skin cell or keratinocyte turnover, decreasing transfer of pigment to skin cells and enhancing penetration of other active ingredients. Additionally, retinoids are an essential part of an anti-aging skin care regimen as they act to block the breakdown of collagen in the skin upon sun exposure.

(g) Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C
In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C in skin serums and creams can block copper where it interacts with tyrosinase. Antioxidants are a critical part of any anti-aging program as they prevent oxidative injury to the skin with sun exposure.

(h) Topical agents

Licorice extract, soy, resveratrol, bearberry extract, emblica extract.

(i) Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels

Dermatologists have been using TCA peels, a close cousin to vinegar, to do chemical peeling for at least twenty years. Some dermatologists, in fact, still prefer TCA peels to any other modality for treating melasma, usually in combination with prescription creams. TCA peels are excellent and safe in the hands of an experienced dermatologist. This is a good option, particularly if you have severe melasma. Such procedure should only be performed by certified doctors.

(j) Lasers
– Effective, safe & FDA approved. You may contact Rachel Chew Clinic to enquire more.

5 Ways To Add Shine To Your Hair

Everyone’s secret desire is to look like one of those gorgeous models in the shampoo commercials. They have perfectly flowing shiny hair and make it seem like they just get up and go. In reality, not everyone wakes up with naturally shiny hair.

There are many different ways to achieve shiny hair at home. Whether it comes from a product you can buy in your local drug store, or a product you can find in your own refrigerator, we have the tips to help you out.

1) Cold Water

The first way to improve the shine in your hair is probably the simplest remedy. It is completely free, so you have no excuses not to try it. All you need to use is cold water.

Girl with shiny hair and flowers This doesn’t mean you have to freeze yourself in a cold shower though. You can still enjoy a warm shower, just remember at the end to turn the nozzle to cold and do a short blast on your hair. What this does is smoothes and closes the hair’s cuticle, which allows it to reflect light rather than absorbing it, making it look shiny.

 

2) The Right Shampoo
The second way to perk up your hair’s shine is to pick the right shampoo. Lots of factors can contribute to dryness, such as chemically treating your hair and even something as simple as using a blow dryer. You need to know exactly what to purchase to counteract these problems.

All lines of shampoos and conditioners have an option for color treated hair. By using these, you protect the color from fading and lock in the moisture that the chemicals can remove. The heat that attacks your hair when using a hair dryer removes all the moisture that adds shine.

Again, choosing the right shampoo – in this case, one that is heat activated – can keep your locks polished.

3) Proper Diet

Another way to achieve shiny strands is to have a proper diet. You always hear about the benefits of eating right, but you never hear about the positive effects it can have on your hair. Maintaining a diet rich in oils (most importantly Vitamin E) is essential in getting shiny results.

Some examples of foods that contain Vitamin E are nuts and seeds, asparagus, olives, spinach, and other green leafy vegetables, as well as avocado. Some good choices of oils to include in your diet would be canola, corn, sunflower and soybean oils.

Water is also a key part of your diet for healthy hair. Just like your body needs to be hydrated to stay healthy, your hair does as well.

4) Brush Your Hair

Another really easy way to add shine that we may overlook is just to simply brush your hair. When you wake up in the morning with tousled hair, all you need to do is slide a brush through and instantly you’ve added shine without doing anything. It brings out your natural oils.

Girl with shiny hair and flowersOne of the top choices would be a brush with boar bristles. The hard bristles will evenly distribute oils from root to tip, and will easily remove unwanted dead hair.

5) Vinegar
For our last tip for adding shine, you’ll need to raid your kitchen cabinets. Vinegar is a great solution to amp up your dull hair. Vinegar helps close the hair cuticles, which as we already learned, helps reflect light.

Any type of vinegar will work, but the most recommended kind would have to be apple cider vinegar. Fill a spray bottle with the vinegar, spray onto wet hair, leave in for a few minutes, and then rinse out thoroughly. If you repeat this a few times a week, you’ll see shimmering results.
