About

Bio

Welcome! I'm Dr. Shalini Gupta. I am a cosmetic dermatologist. I love my work and I love helping my patients achieve their very best cosmetic outcome. From the use of neurotoxins and fillers to skin resurfacing, to noninvasive skin tightening procedures such as ulthera and exilis elite, to the latest fat busting technologies including vaser liposuction, smartlipo, liposonix and the newest Vanquish, I aim to give my patients my very best artistry, knowledge and technology. With these procedures we can help patients with acne, scars, rosacea, blood vessels in their legs and face, brown spots, sun damage, wrinkles, deep lines, loose skin on the face or body, stretchmarks, excess fat deposits, upper eyelid hooding, bulgy lower eyelids, lip lines, cellulite, tattoo removal and so much more
