Her Philosophy on Anti-Aging Skin Therapies
Dr. Pooja believes aesthetic treatments can benefit anyone who wants to improve and enhance their appearance and feel more confident. These treatments range from customised at-home skin care routines to more advanced in-office procedures such as chemical peels, skin tag removal, and personalised laser therapies for skin conditions like acne, pigmentation, scars, moles, and tattoo removal. More advanced options include laser skin rejuvenation, microneedling such as Dermapen with or without PRP, injectables like meso-cocktails and Botox for muscle relaxation, skin boosters for hydration and glow, and dermal fillers for contouring. She recommends starting hair growth treatments sooner rather than later for maximum benefits.
She always advises her patients to go for treatments that have long-term benefits, enhance skin health as well as appearance, and have minimal side effects. As a clinical dermatologist, she always chooses treatments that will help her patients repair the existing damage, enhance skin health and appearance now, and have long-lasting cumulative benefits for the future. Safety is always her priority, and she encourages her patients to be consistent in their skin care regimen and make informed choices.
She continuously stays updated with the latest advancements in aesthetic technology, as this field is constantly evolving.
