Please tell us a little bout your journey, how did you choose dermatology, Was it all pre planned?
belonging to a family of doctors I was always keen about pursuing the medical profession.Having faced a lot of Skin problems during my childhood,the only doctor I visited other than the Child specialist was the Skin Doctor. I had this fascination for the feild of aesthetics and dermatology because it made people look better and the rest is history.
When and how did you start geetika’s skin and cosmetic surgery clinic?
I have been a derma specialist for almost eleven years now. I opened my own clinic in Mohali 5 years back. They say nothing comes easy in life its always the hustle that counts. Just like that it took a lot of international training, innumerable work and years of hard work to stand here.
Apart from that procuring quality equipment from all over the world was a huge task in itself. The only aim was to set up the most advanced and one of its kind dermatology clinic. It’s not done yet, we are open to all sorts of new technologies and advanced laser procedures.

How does our diet impact the health of our skin?
Whatever we eat shows on our skin. Your skin is a mirror for your health. For a healthy skin you need to have a balanced diet. An adequate amount of Antioxidants, Vitamins and Minerals are inevitable. A healthy diet leads to a body detox which in turn gives you a glowing skin. I always advice my patients to have a fruit bowl or salad once a day. Another tip is to stay well hydrated.
