Consulted Dr. Kavitha GV Mandal (Dermatologist)
I do not recommend the doctor
I had gone for the treatment of small, hypopigmented scar on the forehead. She performed an abrasion and left me with a much bigger scar. She scooped out deep area, which took 2-3 only to heal and scab to fall off. Subsequently, the skin is depressed in that area, leaving a visible atrophic scar. I had got the same procedure done earlier from another doctor who just punctured the skin layer, letting another layer grow and the hypopigmentation completely go away.
I went back to her with my concern and she ended up acting defensive. Instead of listening and explaining her point, she kept saying that my procedure is correct and no one can question me. She said a scar cream has to be applied after 2 weeks, which she told me nothing about. Thankfully I had the prescription. When she found it missing there, she said I told you come back after 2 weeks, which she never had. She kept defending and said if it does not improve with scar cream, she will do free lasers. However, the very next minute, she said how will I know if you applied scar cream, you may come back just like that. So, I can't do anything!
Overall, a very bad experience. I'm now looking for a more professional doctor, who can help with the scar this doctor has left for me and lesson to never fall in the trap of any doctor whom you have not received feedback for. Beware, all this doctor is interested in is selling her products. The moment you reach, she will point out 10 problems with your skin, recommend 3-4 ointments/serums/sun screens - the brands that only she sells. All are expensive and commissioned products, that you don't get outside. And, never even explains the basics of use. She recommended vitamin C serum to me without even explaining that you have to use it in the night or under the sunscreen. When I questioned, she said that receptionist should have explained. Quite a cheat on the name of skin care! Stay away, unless you want to land up in a worse condition!
