Dr. Niketa is one of the leading injectors of Botox and dermal fillers for non-surgical face lift and glamorization. Her clientele includes several socialites and sports personalities of India and overseas and regular personalities of Delhi and Mumbai.She was associated with Kaya Skin Clinic for 3 years (2008-2011). She has bagged the most coveted of awards during her tenure as medical head of Kaya Pedder Road, Mumbai, and Kaya Vasant Kunj Delhi. Both of which are one of the top clinics in the west India and North India respectively.
Had a very good experience with the first treatment as well as the treatments she recommended over the call. Had a commendable result. She explained the issue well and was welcome to any questions. She recommended the treatments which were necessary. Very friendly. Felt genuine.
I recommend her for hair.
Dr Nikita is very sweet and patient. She listens to all your problems and guides you every way step by step. The treatments for my acne are working albeit slowly but steadily and disappearing (Been suffering from acne almost three years, this is the first time my skin has cleared properly and healing as time goes by). A few scars which are remaining will go away soon as well because I'm confident in her work and I fully trust Dr. Nikita because I have come a long way since the time I have met her and I'm very happy with treatment and the results. I do definitely recommend her if you are looking to clear up your skin.
Dr. Niketa is a well spoken woman (although sometimes I felt slightly not genuine) and she certainly looks like a dermatologist who takes excellent care of her own skin. She definitely practices what she preaches. If price is not an issue for you and you like going to a posh dermatologist, she's your lady. I was satisfied with the treatments and results and botox was fairly priced.
However, her prices are significantly higher than others in the market for PRP treatments. I found the same GFC PRP hair treatments for 1/3 the price at another leading clinic. I felt quite pushed to buy her products and additional services and treatments. Furthermore, some very expensive treatments are done totally by the nurses who seem somewhat unsure of what they are doing and this came as a bit of a shock, but all you can do is trust when you've already paid and are lying on a table and hope for the best. All that being said, she and her husband make a great team if you are looking for an upmarket clinic with upmarket prices and clientele in the happening area of Lokhandwala.
Hi.! My experience with doc niketa is really good. she's an amazing lady the way she's handle the patients thats commandable
Explained properly and feels the treatment I should take n clear the problems.
I was needing the Dr that can understand my problem ....n she almost understand me,I think
My first visit to Doctor Niketa was about 3 months prior to my wedding. I did a lot of research before getting to her clinic in order to make sure that nothing goes wrong before my big day.
My problem was acne - not the very obvious big pimples but tiny tiny bumps running all throughout my face. And a few brown spots on one side of my cheek from old ones that I tweezed.
I had read so much about Doctor that the first appointment I was excited and nervous hence I made it on time. However I ended up waiting for a good 1 hour outside the clinic - which actually was not a problem at the time. This routine continued almost always though - every time I would wait for over an hour for my turn inspite of pre-booking appointments online or doctor recommending or rescheduling appointments for me. It was the same always. But dare you not be late because our Doctor sure don't like that!
Coming back to my first visit, I shared my problems and I did also confess that I do not drink a lot of water and am a junky eater (from what I know a dermat would ask you to stop that right away?)
But Doctor seemed calm and explained what my problem was without closely observing my skin. Therefore she recommended I do a treatment called Azelan Peel. But before we start that we need to prep my skin and so she gave me a bunch of products for my skin routine.
Well, I was a bride-to-be I was really excited about getting peeled all my pimples and spots away. She recommended I do six sittings of the peel starting the next week of my first appointment. With a guarantee of results & 100% visible difference from the second peel onwards. Why wouldn't I go for it? Only T&C was I pay for all the products and for all the six sittings of the peels in advance or else if I wish to pay per peel I'll have to pay extra. (You know the drill!) So I went for it.
Three peels down and no difference, in-fact my skin was getting worse. However this is not something the doctor noticed herself. I had to bring it out to her - she was all set for the fourth peel! After I told her I wasn't happy, she again calmly explained the alternative - which was comedon extraction and I agreed to it (that turned to be my 4th sitting btw) So basically she manually tweezed out every thing visible from my face. To admit - my skin did feel smoother after this treatment immediately. However now that time has passed I do observe multiple scarring wherever the doctor had tweezed/cut.
5th sitting and doctor decides to take the extreme peel treatment - so this is the highest grade (don't know the name) and for days your skin looks burnt but when it peels it looks like you've got baby skin. Again for 2 days after peel my skin was good but then it turns out I start getting the big red pimples (which I never had - at least not so much)
According to the doctor all the impurities were coming out, so whatever. Last sitting again we decide to do comedon because apparently my skin cannot take new age treatments and dude, we are a week prior to my wedding!
On my wedding day - I think I had the most number of red pimples on my face than any other day of my life. I cried and cried and cried because my face looked terrible. Sure the doctor was polite, sure the doctor was available on phone. But did the doctor know her job?
To my experience and readings about her - I have come to conclude her solution to all acne problem is azelan and a bunch of products from Bioderma and La Roche Posay.
I did talk to the doctor about refund but she sure knows the trick. Extremely disappointed with her treatment and products although she says it's top class I think she really need to look into one's skin in more detail to determine the problem rather than using the same treatment for everyone with acne.
If you're looking to get conned with a major hole in your pocket, and want a face full of acne before your big day - please visit doctor Niketa Sonavane.
Dr. Nikita is one of the sweetest doctors I have ever met. She has a kind demeanor and was very patient with me in all her 4 consultations I had with her. However, In terms of actually treating my condition, Dr. Nikita caused more harm than good. I consulted Dr. Nikita because of the good reviews that she had, and so I wanted to provide an account of my own experience with her.
I saw Dr. Nikita towards the end of June 2015 because my skin had started erupting in much more severe acne than I had experienced before. On my first consult, Dr. Nikita prescribed me some new washes and some vitamins, asked me to try them for two weeks and then come back to her.
On my second consult, Dr. Nikita told me that I needed Azelan chemical peels, and that she was positive that they would help clear my skin for good. I was really nervous about the chemical peels, but she assured me that 6 sittings of them would do the trick. A couple of days after the first peel, my skin erupted in the most scary acne I have ever seen, to the point that I was too embarrassed to go to work.
I consulted Dr. Nikita again and she said that was not A week later, Dr. Nikita gives me another peel and tells me things will get better. Fourth consult, Dr. Nikita gives me one more peel, but then tells me that I need to start a low dose of Isotretinoin (a fairly serious medication) to really clear my skin. She tells me I don't need any more peels, and that she will see me three months later.
I was really nervous about starting Isotretinoin as it can have some serious side effects, so I decide to wait for some time, in the meantime, my skin gets bad to worse. I see another doctor, who asks me to get an ultrasound and blood test done, which shows that I have Poly cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) a hormonal disorder which is very common amongst women in their 20s and 30s. What is the most common side effect of PCOS? Yes, you guessed it- Acne.
I have been treating my PCOS and my skin has gotten back to normal. Of course Dr. Nikita had no way of knowing I had PCOS, but I think any good dermatologist would ask their patient to get some normal tests done before prescribing expensive peels (must have cost me like 10-15k).
Overall, I felt cheated of my money and more importantly, the two months I could have started treating my PCOS had I been diagnosed correctly.
It's been great so far, I'm 3 sessions in with the acne treatment, there's a gradual decrease,feels much better than before. 7 more sessions to go before my wedding day, can't wait to see the magic soon enough. :)
You'd be in trusted hands with Dr. Niketa. She's patient and understanding, will explain everything that one needs to expect through their skin transformation journey.
Scheduled appointment with doctor at 3pm.i showed up at 3.10 as sometimes you end up waiting for 5-10mins
But I had to wait for 20 more mins the staff sent somebody else before me who's suppose to go after me just as they came early. I experienced the worstt customer service
The staff is totally unprofessional they couldn't handle the situation when I told them that what you are doing isn't right as I'm suppose to go first since my scheduled appointment is 3 PM if someone whose showing up before me and who's scheduled appointment is 3.30 has to wait technically and ethically.
Horrible customer service they wasted my time no respect and value for customers time. The staff was arguing with me when the staff was at fault. very disappointed and feel very taken advantage of.
Wouldn't recommend the doctor.
The staff is arrogant.
Whoever is gonna read my review please think before you book an appointment with ambrosia aesthetics
Cause you'll end up getting insulted ******* ****** ******* ** ***** *** ** **** ** *** **********
It was my first meeting with the doctor I was anxious had many questions in my head but the moment I started my conversation I was at complete ease amazing amazing person gave me her complete time and attention and explained all the procedures and skin treatmens perfectly I would surely recommend her , thanks doc
