Finding a good dermatologist is like signing up for a lifetime of great skin. You definitely need an army of skincare specialists these days if you want porcelain skin. With our lifestyles and the pollution we are constantly exposed to, it’s no cakewalk to have your skin behave well. When it comes to dermatologists, talking from personal experience - I can tell you that not all of them are going to be able to understand and help you with your skincare journey. Some might recommend treatments that are too invasive or just don’t fit with your lifestyle while others might just try to address your concerns topically. Coming from someone who’s moved cities and had my skin take a complete U-turn, I can tell you that your dermatologist plays a vital role.
These are some of the dermatologists in the city that we trust, consult and recommend to all our friends and family. They won’t make you spend excessive amounts on your skin and in just one consultation, they will make you feel like you’re in safe hands.
After moving from Mumbai to Gurugram - I struggled with a series of breakouts. I visited a number of doctors and after 3 months of having no luck, I visited Dr Siddharth. What I loved about his approach was that he spent ample time understanding my history before recommending a solution. He focused on addressing the problem from the inside out - rather than recommending otherwise expensive lotions, peels and extractions. His skincare recommendations have been so effective for me that I still consult him over the phone even after moving to a new city. Dr (Lt Cdr) Siddharth Garekar MBBS and his wife Dr (Major) Gurveen Garekar are both available for consultation. They are both very accommodating and patient and will guide you through any concerns.
