SCALP PEEL

Dandruff is an inflammatory condition of the scalp. Symptoms include flaking and sometimes mild itchiness. It can result in social or self-esteem problems.

Dandruff affects about fifty percent of the adult population, with males more often affected than females. People in all areas of the world are affected. Onset is usually at puberty and it becomes less common after the age of 50.
Scalp peel is an effective therapeutic option for dandruff.

What is scalp peel?

Just like chemical peeling of face helps in keeping the skin in good condition, similarly, scalp peel is a treatment in which some therapeutic products containing active agents is applied on the scalp, left for few minutes and rinsed. This helps in reducing the sebum production, division of the fungus, and deep cleansing of the scalp.

Scalp peel helps in improving the dandruff faster and makes the scalp more healthy.

How does it work?

Scalp peel contains active keratolytic agents. These components help in exfoliation of the upper layer of scalp skin, reduce the sebum production by shrinking the oil glands, inhibit the growth of Malassezia fungi, and restores the pH balance of the scalp.
All these factors help in improving the dandruff condition, and a healthy clean scalp further promotes hair growth.

How is the procedure done?

Scalp peel is a quick, painless procedure.

Steps of the procedure are:

Your scalp is first cleaned with a moist gauze to remove dirt and grime.

The required quantity of Scalp peel solution is poured into a glass bowl

Hair is neatly parted into sections and scalp peel is applied uniformly with a brush or a guaze in the partings.

You might feel slight tingling sensation here

The peel is left for around 15 minutes, and after that the scalp is rinsed with a mild shampoo.

How long does the procedure takes?

Scalp peel is a quick procedure taking around 30 minutes

What can I expect during the recovery time?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. You can go back to your routine activities immediately after the sessions. There is no increased sensitivity of the scalp.

When can I see the results?

You can start to notice an improvement in the dandruff problem just after one session. A series of 6-8 sessions, heals it completely. The results can further be enhanced by using an anti-dandruff shampoo weekly twice along with the scalp peel.

How many sessions are required for optimum results?

Depending on the severity of dandruff, you may require 6-8 sessions for complete clearance.

How frequently are the sessions done?

Scalp peel is recommended to be done once every week

Are the results permanent?

No. Dandruff is a condition arising primarily because of excess sebum production and Malassezia overgrowth (commensal of our body). Both these factors can not be eliminated for permanent. Hence, one cannot get rid of dandruff for permanent. One needs to continue using the anti-dandruff shampoos on a weekly once basis to keep the condition under control.

Any side effects?

Scalp peel is a very safe and effective modality of treatment for dandruff, especially those with more severe and resistant condition.

What are the other treatment options for dandruff?

Mild to moderate dandruff can be improved by using shampoos containing anti-fungal shampoo. The shampoo should be used 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks or till dandruff clears and then weekly once for maintenance.
In cases where the scales are very thick, topical keratolytic agents are used.
