A Minute With

1.
CAREER-DEFINING PROCEDURE
The one procedure which has changed my career is Botox, which I call the “Big Bang” of facial aesthetics
2.
THE FUTURE OF MY FIELD
The future of the field is expanding on the palette of skin care, injectables and energy-based devices and using them in combination for a true nonsurgical facial and non-facial rejuvenation
3.
MOST OUTRAGEOUS MEDICAL MYTH I’VE HEARD
Many people still believe that dramatic results can only be achieved through surgical means
4.
HOW MY PROFESSION HAS EVOLVED
In this profession there are some providers with limited education and expertise who claim to be aesthetic experts, I refer to them as “pretenders;” I always tell my patients to seek board-certified core specialty physicians that practice within their scope, nothing can replace real education and expertise
5.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PROFESSION
I’ve been able to be a part of cutting-edge clinical trials that have truly changed the landscape of aesthetics; I’ve also helped educate the next generation of core specialty physicians such as board- certified dermatologists in venues such as the Cosmetic Bootcamp—they are the future of our specialty
6.
THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT MY PROFESSION
That one “tool”—as opposed to multiple modalities—can address all of the issues of any given medical or cosmetic condition; when in actuality, most treatments require a multimodal approach

Face of the Future

“Establishing a trusting relationship with patients is a vital part of my philosophy,” Dr. Narurkar stresses. Treating patients like members of its “family” has made the Bay Area Laser Institute a practice that thrives from referrals, both by patients and his peers—including other dermatologists and plastic surgeons. “I find it humbling when other doctors trust me not only with their skin-care needs, but with those of their families and patients as well.” Keeping in line with his respect for continuing education, the dermatologist participates in pro-bono work, parlaying his skills in other mediums, contributing to greater causes. Whether he is teaching residents at UC Davis or co-directing Cosmetic Bootcamp®, an education venue for core aesthetic physicians, Dr. Narurkar finds a great deal of satisfaction in mentoring new talent and helping improve the lives of others through his skills. “Educating the next generation is paramount to me, as is helping others improve their self-worth. I really enjoy the personal gratification dermatology brings me.”
