Consulted Dr. Deepali Kalbag (Cosmetologist)
I do not recommend the doctor
For me it was an absolute waste of time and money. I was treated at Tender skin international, to get rid or lessen the black patches around my lips, for a span of 6 months (July, 15 to Jan, 16). I was initially asked to undergo 6 laser sessions after every 2weeks. I religiously followed all my session until my 4th laser session where I found that there was absolutely no effect of these sessions. Through blood test it was found out that the lasers are not working because of low Ferritin and border line vitamin levels. I was kept on medicines for around a month and the ferritin and Vitamin levels roused significantly. But then I started getting multiple boils all over my body. These boils were bleeding boils and very painful. Till date I have these boils on my body. It takes around 2 weeks to cure one boil and even after the boil gets cured, it leaves a mark or scar permanently on my body. I am not a medical student so can’t comment if the occurrence of these boils has to do with medicines that I took to raise my Ferritin and Vitamin levels (the medicines were prescribed by Dr.Deepali and Dr.Sonia). But if I go with the sequence of events, it happened only after consuming these medicines. Keeping my boils issue aside, for my dark patches which were the same to what I started with, I was recommended 4 IPL sessions. I started with the first session and now I have developed multiple pimples on my face. Before going to Tender skin international, I was only struggling to get rid of black patches but I have one more problem to fight for i.e., Pimples or boils on my face.
Initially I paid an amount of Rs. 15000 for all the sessions. The doctors at Tender Skin international consumed around 11000 for all the sessions (3 laser sessions, 1 IPL Session, 1 Session for under eyes). But looking at my condition, instead of taking an ownership, they decided to refund my remaining amount which was around 4000. For me it is not just loss of money and time but also my health. Due to the boil issue (I have actually lost the count of boils on my body), I have hardly attended my office in 6 months and I lost some very good opportunities from my office.
I was in touch with Dr. Deepali for all these months but all treatment recommendations were done by Dr. Sonia. The last time I met Dr. Deepali, I showed the boils all over my body and also pimples on my face but she had no answer for my problems except for some new set of medicines. My experience may differ from the rest. Others may have good experience but mine was bad. Whatever I have written above is letter by letter true and nobody can challenge that.
