Tanning happens in response to increased pigment production within our skin, caused by exposure to sun.
 

There are 4 tan removal treatments which are as follows:

  • Laser toning (Rs. 4,000-10,000): laser device breaks down pigment and reduces the appearance of tan, sun spots, etc.
    • Common side effects include: Pain, discomfort, and stinging sensation.
    • Whereas the risks are: Pigmentation, scarring, and blistering.
       
  • Chemical Peel (Rs. 1,800-10,000): A mixture of acids that is beneficial for skin, is applied on the concerned region of your body, in the required quantity, which dries up and is removed thereafter - this process aids in the regeneration of newer & healthier skin cells by removing upper tanned layers of skin.
    • Common side effects include:
      • Redness & stinging.
      • Increased sensitivity to sun.
      • Scabbing and swelling.
    • Whereas the risks are:
      • Permanent scarring.
      • Pigmentation.
      • Damage to Heart, kidney, or liver.
         
  • Microdermabrasion (Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000 per session): Acts on the epidermis only (superficial scarring). During the treatment, your dermatologist will use a drill-like handheld appliance with a wire brush or some other abrasive as its attachment, to swipe over your skin. Same will eliminate epidermal scarring.
    • Common side effects: Swelling, bruising, and redness.
    • Whereas the risks are:
      • Skin getting pierced.
      • Any damage to eye if the doctor isn't careful enough.
         
  • Creams/face pack/face wash (Rs. 200 to Rs. 2000): Results last for comparatively lesser amount of time, and tanning can affect even deeper layers of your skin while these would work on only the surface level of your skin.


To know more, you can consider getting in touch with experts through our page - Dermatologists, or that based on any other city nearest to your residence, let us know!

Note:

  • Incurred cost may exceed our given range depending on - location/infrastructure of clinic, severity of concern, target area, thickness of skin, number of sessions, experience of clinician, and other value-added services provided by the clinic.
  • Except for genitals or region surrounding eyes, you should be able to get these treatments done for other areas - discuss this with the doctor.
  • These treatments can be done on people of all skin types, but acnes, or skin infection at the time, may create undesirable complications.
  • To pick a suitable specialist, discuss/look-out for these aspects:
    • Past experiences & success rates.
    • Common side effects & risks of such procedures.
    • Pre-treatment preparations & post-treatment care.

    • Azelaic acid (anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory).
    • Topical antibiotics (eliminates bacteria and decreases inflammation).

Doctor will either advise over-the-counter medicine, or clinical medicines, or PRP, or laser therapy, and if nothing works then hair transplant.

Below is just a list of treatments options that are available to every patient, but based on your health background and severity of concern, the dermatologist will ultimately decide which course to proceed forward with.

However, you can try and enquire regarding these with your specialist: 

  1. Chemical Peel (Rs. 1,800-10,000): A mixture of acids that is beneficial for skin, is applied on the concerned region of your body, in the required quantity, which dries up and is removed thereafter - this process aids in the regeneration of newer & healthier skin cells by removing upper tanned layers of skin.

During the treatment, your dermatologist will use a drill-like handheld appliance with a wire brush or some other abrasive as its attachment, to swipe over your skin. Same will eliminate epidermal scarring.
  3. Dermabrasion (Rs. 1500 to Rs. 6000 per session): Same as Microdermabrasion, but also reaches a part of your dermis which is a little deeper.
  4. Laser resurfacing (Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 10,000 per session): laser device breaks down pigment and reduces the appearance of tan, sun spots, etc.
  5. Microneedling (Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 25,000 per session): You will be supplied with anesthesia, followed by fine pricks being created evenly throughout face, and then there will be a gentle application of serum, which will result in growth of collagen
  6. Either OTC or Prescription - Creams/face pack/face wash (Rs. 200 to Rs. 2000): Results last for comparatively lesser amount of time, and tanning can affect even deeper layers of your skin while these would work on only the surface level of your skin.

The first thing that we would like to clear is, that we neither perform nor provide any medical treatment/surgery ourselves, we are only concerned with educating people about their possible options and which they can discuss with their doctors, or with providing other services that help such people reach their treatment destination more easily.

 

Coming to your query:

  • FUT per grafts costs Rs. 25 to Rs. 35, so for 2500-2800 grafts, it should be anywhere between Rs. 62,500 to Rs. 98,000.
  • FUE per graft costs Rs. 35 to Rs. 45, so for 1200 grafts, it should be anywhere between Rs. 42,000 to Rs. 54,000.
  • If you go for 1000 grafts for beard then it should be between Rs. 25,000 to Rs. 45,000.
  • To know about each procedure in-depth, or which factors to consider and safety/complications, read our blog - Hair Transplant in India.

 

Additionally, you can also take second opinions from other doctors - Hair Transplant Surgeons. Let us know if you have city-specific preferences, and drop us a message if you have any other concern/query!

  • If laser treatment isn't giving desirable results with regards to hair removal, then electrolysis is the only option left in our view, however, a specialist is at a better place to comment on same.
  • It charges Rs. 800 to Rs. 5,000 per hour.
    • Cost depends and can exceed our estimated range, depending on: experience of doctor, severity of concern, location of clinic, number of sessions, density of hair and area covered.
  • The temporary side effects are: pain, redness and swellings.
  • But if not done properly, then it can cause: scarring, keloid scars and changes in skin color as well.

Beneath is a gist of treatments every patient can opt for -- but based on your health background and severity of concern, the dermatologist will ultimately decide which course to pick.

However, you can still try to enquire regarding these treatments with your specialist:

  1. Laser toning (Rs. 4,000-10,000): laser device breaks down pigment and helps reduce appearance of tan, sun spots, etc.
  2. Chemical Peel (Rs. 1,800-10,000): A mixture of acids that is beneficial to skin, is applied on the concerned region of your body, in the required quantity, which dries up and is removed thereafter - this process aids in the regeneration of newer & healthier skin cells by removing upper tanned layers of skin.
  3. Skin lightening Injections (Rs. 6,000-40,000): Can detoxify the body and provide U.V protection, along with improving skin tone. It will use a dosage of glutathione however.
    • Risks:
      • Kidney damage &/or blood poisoning
      • Nausea, breathing issues &/or chest pain
      • Rashes, allergic reactions, numbness or hives.
      • Stomach infections &/or eye disorders.
      • Hair loss &/or hair Whitening.
      • Weight gain
      • Postscript: Severity of symptoms can be reduced by supplying proper dosage.
  4. Either OTC or Clinically prescribed - Creams/face pack/face wash (Rs. 200 to Rs. 2000): Results last for comparatively lesser amount of time, and tanning can affect even deeper layers of your skin while these would work on only the surface level of your skin.

 

  • Common side effects for rest of the treatments except creams & injections:
    • Pain. discomfort, stinging (for all).
    • swelling, redness and bruising (for all).
    • Increased sensitivity to sun (chemical peel).
       
  • Risks following rest of the treatments except creams & injections:
    • Damage to heart/kidney/liver (chemical peel).
    • Permanent pigmentation, scarring and blistering (for all).

  1. Laser removal:
    • Based on factors such as size, type, and color of moles -- the cost and number of sessions required, will vary.

    • Effective for moles that are difficult to reach.

    • Uses radio waves to remove moles.
    • There will be a wound following this treatment but will heal.
  3. Punch Excision:
    • Used to treat smaller moles.
    • A device is employed to punch out the moles.
  4. Electrocautery:
    • Burns the moles superficially, to protect the surrounding tissues and avoid scarring.

    • The process of mole removal can cost between Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 30,000 per session, depeding on the procedure and other complications encountered during treatment.
