– Dr. Rekha Sheth


From the time she got her medical degree in dermatology in the early 1970s, Dr. Rekha Sheth has worked to establish herself in the field of cosmetic dermatology. Her interest in the subject increased as she educated herself by working with world-renowned dermatologists around the world including Prof. Gunter Stuttgen at Berlin’s Freie University in Europe and Prof. Albert Kligman at the University of Pennsylvania. She has both worked and schooled in various leading universities and hospitals like Harvard University, New York University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston City Hospital and the University of Texas in USA.

Dr. Rekha Sheth is one of the Board Of Directors of The International Society of Dermatology.

In addition to being one of India’s leading dermatologists, she is a respected and renowned authority on Cosmetic Dermatology. Her vast expertise in the subject has also been recognized by her peer groups. This has taken her across the country, educating various groups of dermatologists in Maharashtra, Kerala, Gujarat, Indore, Ludhiana, Rohtak, Bilaspur, Calicut and Khatmandu.

Dr. Sheth is the founder and present President of the Cosmetic Dermatology Society (India). For the first time in India she has, through this, brought dermatologists and plastic surgeons under a common forum to improve techniques and spread knowledge on beauty and cosmetic care. Over the last three years, through the CDSI, she has organized over 20 immensely successful teaching seminars both for beauticians and dermatologists.

Industrial giants like Hindustan Lever Limited and Givaudan Roure, Switzerland have often invited her to conduct various cosmetologic research projects for them, which she has successfully carried out under international guidelines, including the WHO’s instructions for Good Clinical Practice (GCP). This has given her the distinction of being the only dermatologist in the country to have maximum cosmetic clinical studies under her belt.

She added a new dimension to the field in India, by founding her own Cosmetic Dermatology clinic, Iz. At Iz, every aspect of skin and hair care including beauty services is scientifically and hygienically executed under one roof.

The media has appreciated her through regular columns in leading newspapers like Bombay Times and Mid-Day and premiere magazines like Cosmopolitan, Elan, and New Woman. In addition, she has been featured regularly in a number of other top newspapers and magazines, television shows and websites.

She has written a book “The Beauty Book” which is a complete manual on skin and hair care published by Penguin. This is the first time that such a book has been written in our country by an authority.

Today she is one of the country’s leading cosmetic dermatologists with a clientele ranging from actors and models to industrialists to people from all walks of life. It is her commitment and excellence in taking care of skin and cosmetic conditions that has earned Dr. Sheth her magnum status as India’s top cosmetic dermatologist.
