The guiding philosophy behind Dr. Shyam’s practice of dermatology is listening to his patients’ needs and goals. He is a firm believer in a team-oriented approach and works with his medical and cosmetic clients to help guide and formulate the best, personalized treatment plan. While specializing in non-surgical cosmetic enhancements such as neurotoxins, lasers and fillers, Dr. Shyam is always conservative in his approach to skin rejuvenation and aims to create a natural and refreshed appearance ensuring his patients are always comfortable with their own skin.
