Dr. Satish Bhatia unveils the latest techniques in the cosmetic industry which are fast catching up with Mumbaikars looking for the font of youth

At the premier of the Inglourious Basterds, the radiant Angelina Jolie got tongues wagging. Was it a natural glow, the result of the delicious Mr Brad Pitt, or the more discrete dermaroller? Move over CO2 laser and brunch time botox, the new generation of beauty treatments are less invasive, time-consuming and a lot more effective. Dr Satish Bhatia, the dermatologist and cutaneous sur- geon behind The Derm Destination in Cooperage, tells us what the new wave of beauty science has washed ashore.


If you can face the fear of needles, the result is a dewy complexion. The der- maroller is a hand-held device that consists of a small roller embedded with needles. And what it does is give your face an almost instant plumping. It reduces fine lines, gets rid of blotch- es, visible veins and scars, making your skin look more youthful. It has the same effect, over two plus sittings, that lasers (carbon dioxide laser) or strong peels have, minus the risks such as scarring and pigmentation. How it works: The dermatologist manually moves the roller over your skin. Depending on the pain threshold, you can opt for a numb- ing cream or a local anaesthetic. There is surface bleeding for a few minutes. The process of injuring the skin’s outer layer, in a controlled en- vironment, is similar to exfoliation. The result is a fresher, plumper look thanks to the new skin. Downtime: There is some redness and swelling which takes five to sev- en days to disappear, depending on your skin type. You have to stay away from harsh sunlight for two weeks or at least use a 30 SPF sunblock.


A completely non-invasive procedure -the thread lift- makes you look five to seven years younger, without weilding a knife. Goodbye nasty scars and profuse bleeding. How it works: Pin-hole incisions are made along the hairline. A special thread, called the contour thread, is inserted into these incisions till it reaches the subcutaneous (a deeper layer) layer of the skin. The thread is then pulled up make the skin taut. The client is given a hand-held mirror so (s)he can direct the surgeon to achieve desired results. Downtime: There is usually some minor swelling and/or bruising that takes two to three days to sub-side. The patient is advised not to chew hard foods for a week. Also, facials and saunas are totally out as they tend to open up the pores. In extremely rare cases, the patient may develop an allergy to the thread. Overall, risks are minimal. But the thread lift is not advised to those prone to allergies and those suffering from connective tissue disease.


Here’s a non-invasive method of getting rid of fat deposits. While previously you’d have to undergo liposuction requiring hospital stay, now you can walk out of the clinic in less than 30 minutes without those love handles and fat pouches. How it works: Chemicals, which break down fat cells, are injected into desired areas. No stitches, no bleeding; just a shot and you’re done. Downtime: The chemicals work within your system and results can take two to four weeks to show. Those with sensitive skin might develop blood spots which heal within a few days. The procedure is not advisable for pregnant and breast-feeding women and those suffering from neuro-muscular disorders.


If you want to alter your nose but are too scared to undergo a rhinoplasty, then this procedure with subtle results, might interest you. It’s non-invasive no cutting up and stitching, no scraping of the nose cartilage. Just a shot of botox. How it works: Botox is injected into the muscles responsible for the nasal flare. They get stretched out, thereby reshaping the nose. Downtime: Just a few hours and you can get back to life as you knew it. Once again pregnant, breast- feeding women will have to give this procedure a miss, as also those who suffer from neuro- muscular diseases.

I had severe Lachen Planus for the last 1 year and I got to know about Satish Sir. Thanks to him, his treatment has been really very smooth and effective so far. The medicines prescribed by him has worked apparently and I am looking forward to cure my disease very soon. More importantly, his behaviour is really kind and he listens to us patiently.

One of the most honest dermatologists I have ever met. He does not prescribe expensive and unnecessary medications and unnecessary blood test like some other dermatologist do , we need more dermatologists like him in Mumbai
