Like good health and youth, most of us take our locks for granted that is, until they're gone. For many people, a hair transplant can help bring back what looks like a full; or at least a fuller, head of hair. If thinning or going bald really bothers you, this procedure can be one way to feel more confident about your looks. Hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure done to restore the lost hair and lift the looks of the person.
There are a number of applications for Hair Transplant Surgery, including:
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair and pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.
Since hair naturally grows in groupings of one to four hairstrands, today's most advanced techniques harvest and transplant these naturally occurring hair "follicular units" in their natural groupings. Thus, modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking natural hair for hair. This hair transplant procedure is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
Pre-operative assessment and planning
At an initial consultation, the surgeon analyzes the patient's scalp, discusses their preferences and expectations and advises them on the best approach (e.g. single vs. multiple sessions) and what results might reasonably be expected.
For several days prior to surgery, the patient refrains from using any medicines which might result in intraoperative bleeding and thereby resultant poor "take" of the grafts. Alcohol and smoking can contribute to poor graft survival. Post-operative antibiotics are commonly prescribed to prevent wound or graft infections.
Harvesting method by Follicular unit extraction (FUE):

Skin is the largest organ of your body. Healthy skin indicates the signs of internal health. Many conditions which seems to be as usual can be leading marker for your chronic disease
Acne is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. Acne can appear on the back, chest, neck, shoulders, upper arms and buttocks. Most people who have acne are teenagers or young adults but acne can occur at any age.
Causes of Acne:
Genetics: Genetics are thought to be the cause in 80% of cases
Hormonal: Which occurs during puberty, may contribute to the formation of
acne. During puberty, an increase in sex hormones called androgens causes the follicular
glands to grow larger and make more sebum. Acne that first develops between the
ages of 21 and 25 is uncommon.
Medical conditions that commonly cause a high-androgen state, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, and androgen-secreting tumours, can cause acne in affected individuals.
An increase in androgen (and sebum) synthesis may also be seen during pregnancy.
Diet: The role of diet as a cause is unclear and neither cleanliness nor sunlight appear to be involved. So the relationship between diet and acne is unclear, as there is no absolute evidence which establishes any definitive link.
Psychological: Research indicates that increased acne severity is associated with high stress levels in certain settings (e.g., in association with the hormonal changes seen in premenstrual syndrome)
Acne can cause more than blemishes. Studies show that people who have acne can have
Low self-esteem & Depression
Dark spots on the skin: These spots appear when the acne heals. It can take months or years for them to disappear.
Scars (permanent): People who get acne, cysts and nodules often see scars when the acne clears. You can prevent these scars.

Botox is one of the most predominantly used treatments to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.Doctors have been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.. Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox. It can also be used for lip lines and for the chin and corner of the mouth and neck.
How does Botox work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles and so the injected muscle can't contract, which makes the wrinkles relax and soften in appearance. Following treatment, results are usually seen within three to five days; however it can take up to two weeks to see full results.

It is a relatively short procedure and requires no anaesthesia. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect
