Dr. Deepika Shetty, India Dermato-cosmetologist
Dr. Deepika Shetty
A strong passion for beauty and skin, as well as a deeply ingrained sense of ethics is what has driven Dr. Shetty to create this unique profile as a derma-cosmetologist. Professionally qualified, with an MBBS from Kasturba Medical College, one of the oldest colleges in the Manipal Group, in Mangalore, and Derma cosmetology from the United Kingdom, she has established herself as a consulting expert in her field. Additionally, she has also graduated in skin consultancy from INHS Asvini, the largest Indian military hospital, located in Mumbai. It is this education and background of medical knowledge, coupled with her passion to genuinely create a difference in the field of medical skincare, truly makes her the personification of the Hippocrates oath.
Through the time that she has spent gaining experience, Dr. Shetty has felt that technology has taken on a too-prominent role in a field that is essentially about people. She has always believed that to being a cosmetologist meant that one should be in touch with people from all walks of life. It is this belief that helps her maintain her integrity toward her profession, drives Dr. Shetty to step beyond the four walls of a hospital and share her knowledge with the world. Moreover, it is her positive and go-getter attitude that forms a strong foundation for her outlook that it is not only the privileged who have the right to look their best, but people from any walk of life should at least have the opportunity to know that they can look their best.
Other than her medical experience, she is well travelled, has worked in the global circuit for a few years in which time she has interacted with diplomats the world over and even has had the privilege to consult with Dr. Abdul Kalam .She has also done her marketing from Wellingkar Mumbai, thus broadening her scope to apply her medical experience to other areas. She also acts as a functioning medical consultant for pharmaceutical companies, one of the more prominent ones being Franco Indian Pharmaceuticals, and works in tandem with the world of medicine and beauty. All these experiences cast in stone her skill as world class consultant, while also being well grounded in the values of Indian culture.
Dr. Shetty has always believed in functioning beyond her comfort zone. Ever active in her quest for knowledge, her passion has driven her to go beyond the usual defined realms of her profession. She actively conducts training and awareness programmes for airline stewardesses, general public, children, housewives, teachers and corporate employees. Through her programmes, she not only enlightens her audience about the mantras for beautiful skin, but also shares her experiences that have led her to believe that looking good should be complemented by feeling good. Her profession notwithstanding, she believes that a derma-cosmetologist is a guide to her clientele, and to be able to build that confidence in them, she believes in keeping herself well educated with regard to the latest breakthroughs in her field. Well read on the industry, its techniques and technology, she also decided to share her knowledge with the masses through her writing. This inspired Dr. Shetty to take up writing and is now the Managing Editor of Wellbeing Magazine.
Dr. Shetty truly is a class apart in the medical world, as it is her positive and never-say-die attitude, backed with a thirst for knowledge, ambition and will to challenge and surpass herself with every given assignment that makes her a force to reckon with. One can rest assured that with such vast experience and sound knowledge, one is in safe hands.
