With the healthy skin holding key to beauty, the Gian Sagar Medical College has launched cosmetic dermatology center to give healthy glow and address all beauty issues.Gian Sagar Hospital, located on Chandigarh Rajpura Road, about 20 kms from Chandigarh, has introduced the modern marvel of cosmetic dermatology away from the city settings.Specially trained in Mumbai in lasers and cosmetic science, dermatologist Dr Meghna Sharma, who is heading the center, said that though inner beauty will always be the one that creates a lasting impression but appearance is always the first impression. "This is the era of presentation, youthful looks, awareness and fine grooming. Go ahead and experience transformation, find new beginnings and infuse yourself with confidence, " she said.
She added that at the center emphasis is on providing treatments that are gentle on skin and have long lasting and permanent effect. Latest non invasive treatments like micro needling, subcision, micro derma abrasion remove scars on the face, which can mar the psyche of a person. She added that till few years ago once a woman entered motherhood maintaining an ideal weight and caring about her looks was not needed.”Ab shaadi aur bachhe toh ho gaye”days are passé now. "Look around these days and you can’t tell a mother from a daughter. Women have realized that a healthy skin and weight gets them not only social acceptability and recognition but also may enhance their job prospects to some degree," she said.
Dr. Meghna added that post pregnancy blemishes can be gradually faded with cocktail peels and refreshing serums. Similarly, stretch marks following pregnancy, weight loss or gain can be smoothed out with dermarollers. She said that the generation today was fighting a hard battle against pigmentation armed with the ballistics of fairness creams. "Its not the pigmentation, but hyper pigmentation that matters. Our skin type and color will always remain the same. The need is to make it look brighter and peel off the scars of pollution. Research shows that hyper pigmentation especially melasma lowers self esteem and reduces quality of life in women," she said.Talking about the miracle shot botox and fillers, Dr Meghna added that dine lines and wrinkles can be bid adieu with the help of these miracle potions. Available at affordable prices these procedures have become lower than their cost decade ago. Not only the urban crowd, but surprisingly at the center in Gian Sagar Hospital rural ladies also are warming up to these services, she said.
With hormonal imbalances on the rise, females are constantly embarrassed by coarse facial hair and dense body hair. Procedures like waxing, threading and hair removal creams are not only temporary but have their share of side effects like infections, eczems, ingrown hair and darkening of skin. "We have introduced laser hair removal at affordable prices. Contrary to the myths in general public about the safety and effectiveness of laser machines, laser hair removal is a very safe and long lasting hair reduction technique," she said. Even men are not left behind. Procedures popular in men are laser hair reduction for cheek region or body laser hair reduction too amongst athletes and body builders. Tattoo removal is also frequently requested from the ones selected for army interviews.Chairman Dr Barjinder Singh said that the center aims at giving experience of great ambience, unparalleled services and world class care to every inpidual visiting the hospital.
