Bangalore, July 16, 2014 : Over 450 men and women thronged the free hair and skin consultation and check up camp organised by Hairline International Hair and Skin Treatment Centre at Brindavan Hospital, Jayalakshmipuram in Mysore today. The camp was held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

More than 35 to 40% of the 450 patients diagnosed were in 18 to 30 years age group and faced serious hair and skin related problems like hair fall, frontal baldness, premature greying, skin rashes, dryness and acne.

It was seen that more than 50% men who attended the check up camp today were in their early 20’s and experienced frontal baldness.

About 30% were diagnosed with skin problems like rashes, dryness, acne etc and 35% for both.

Analysing the condition of the patients who attended the check up camp, Senior Dermatologist at Hairline International, Dr Dinesh G Gowda said, “The historic city of Mysore is fast becoming a sought-after IT destination. A dramatic rise in BPO night shift jobs in the past few years, and the consequent lifestyle changes and increasing vehicular pollution are the main reasons for the hair and skin related medical conditions.â€

“Hair fall, pre-mature greying, frontal baldness, skin dryness, acne and rashes are just the symptoms of bigger health issues.

When we diagnose our patients, we also recommend them to other doctors for a complete health check up,†he said.

He further added that vehicular pollution is increasing in Mysore leading to skin rashes and dryness. Also, the sedentary lifestyle opted by youngsters along with erratic food timings and increased junk food intake increases the problem further. With BPO night-shift jobs and related stress there is a greater need for a healthy lifestyle than ever before.

Analysing the patient footfall Dr.Dinesh Gowda mentioned, “In the past 3 years, we have seen a remarkable increase in the number of patients in the 18 to 30 years age group at our Hairline International centres in Bangalore centre. Among them, more than 8 to 10% patients are from Mysore. This has prompted us to hold the check up camp in this cityâ€.

Ms Bani Anand, Founder and Managing Director, Hairline International says, “Owing to the response seen at the check up camp, we are planning to expand our footprint in Mysore. We are contemplating to either open a Trichology centre at a hospital or open a standalone Hairline International centre in Mysoreâ€.
