— Eminent dermatologist Dr. Ram Malkani (MD, DVD, DDV, FAAD – USA) of Peddar Road-based Dr. Skin, perhaps the only clinic in the world to exclusively treat acne (pimples), heals skin diseases by understanding human nature, behaviour and psyche! Dr. Malkani, Director, Dr. Skin Pimples Pvt. Ltd., believes that the human mind produces body symptoms and gives a lot of importance to addressing these concerns of the mind, which eventually manifest as diseases. He opines that this psychosomatic treatment is relevant in this decade due to the rising importance given to aesthetics of the face, hair and body. In fact, he is a rare doctor who has also appointed a psychoanalyst in his team of dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons and fitness-beauty counselors.
Dr. Malkani has identified several human behavioural traits that cause skin diseases: fear, anxiety, denial, pent up anger, aggression, depression, not opening up; and dissatisfaction amongst others. The eminent dermatologist, who has studied dermatology for 37 years and psychoanalysis for 17 years, regularly conducts workshops on psychosomatics in order to create awareness about the impact of the human mind on skin and hair related diseases. In fact, Dr. Malkani is now working on a treatment to remove hair permanently from the female body. He is also working on treating pigmentation in the human skin. He also developing techniques for obesity reduction.
Dr. Malkani says, “When it comes to skin diseases and hair loss, people have their own notions, which are often misconceptions and perceptions far away from the truth. People blame pollution, diet and also have no faith or patience in the ability of allopathic medicines to heal them over a sustained period of time. They also worry about the harmful side-effects of medicines without weighing the risk:benefit ratio! In fact, most people forget that skin diseases are not contagious and need to be tackled from the root — which is the human mind.”
A new drug has been found which prevents the pores from getting blocked thereby preventing Acne formation. This drug when taken for 6-8 moths causes the pimples to disappear never to come again. This drug like many other drugs has to be avoided during pregnancy and the side effects are minimal. Acne can be easily treated under expert supervision. The treatments at Dr. Skin are personalized, effective and only given by experts under the supervision of the head dermatologist, who is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and a member of European Academy of Dermatology. It also offers treatments for Pigmentation, Hair Care, Laser for Unwanted Hair, Botox / Fillers and Plastic Surgery.
Talking about acne treatments at Dr. Skin Clinic, Dr. Malkani says, “We get patients to commit to a long-term therapy by making them sign on for a 3-, 6- and 9- month course, which includes consultations, medications and procedures! A majority of patients visiting us are young girls of marriageable age. When they come to us, we also conduct detailed investigations and studies on their personality and temperament. We often get information from the people accompanying the patients.”
Patient Veena Mehta says, “Dr. Skin Clinic made my pimples and even the redness vanish. All credit goes to Dr.Malkani & his team who actually kept telling me that my skin would be like a clean sheet of paper. It then seemed unlikely but now I can see the results. I feel really good about myself now.”
Priyanka D. Teredesai, Financial Analyist, ICICI Bank, says, “Glad to have found out about this clinic. I underwent pimple treatment recently and the treatment proved to be significantly effective. My pimples have gone completely. The skin recovery progress is terrific. Dr.Malkani & his whole team deserves special mention for their hospitality, friendly & caring attitude & professionalism.

Dr. Skin boosts self-confidence as they genuinely give you spot free skin. It uplifts your overall personality.”
MS Shilu says, “Isotretinoin Acnestar 20 and it has worked wonders. I have been using it for the last 10 months or so and the result is amazing. I flaunt a clear face which i have been struggling to have for the last many years. I use to be scared of looking into the mirror and at one point refused to step out being conscious of the pimples. I have had no side effects or moodswings etc. using isotretinoin. Thanks.”
