Dr Mehta you worked for the past 31 years in several countries? Where are you located ?
I’ve been fortunate to serve as a faculty member, armed forces medical unit, private hospitals and own private practice. My entire professional journey has crossed several countries. Now that I look back, it’s an incredible feeling when you’ve treated over 150 nationalities with all different skin types that you can name.
With this experience, I’ve learnt that incidences and pattern of Dermatological diseases differ from each geographic area. So does their management of cosmetic conditions where you require special skills and understanding skin types.

Post acne scars is one of the commonest cosmetic problem and result from neglected acne or improper treatment.
