Dr. Pradnya Shastri started the Skin, Hair & Laser Clinic with the intention of not only providing the latest skin care treatments to people but to also create awareness about the largest but most neglected organ of the body. Ironically, she uses the word neglected since we see so many people using so many skin care products and yet not be able to achieve the skin they desire. The lack of knowledge about the proper use of skin care products and about the basic care of the skin has led to the rise of many unhappy people hopping from one skin care product or skin care clinic to the next. In her clinic, she intends to change the face of this paradoxical situation. Our motto is to generate proper awareness about skin care in the general population. Skin care needn't be expensive but it definitely needs to be well planned.
