Cosmetic Dermatology is an ever-evolving field of science that is non-essential medicinal service. The idea of beautification , moulding , creating, the artistry and skill level involved to be cutting edge in this field is an exciting prospect in itself… To make this art and science combination available to the Indian masses at affordable pricing and at the same time not compromise on the quality of care and medical ethics is what drives me. My vision is to make Kosmoderma Clinics the Gold standard & trendsetter in Aesthetic Medicine& Cosmetic Dermatology. This is my dream and this has set me on my path of pursuit towards providing the best Cosmetic Dermatology services in India equivalent if not superior to that found abroad and on the world platform for such services, Dr Chytra added.
Currently I am leading my team to open Kosmoderma centres of excellence across India, in Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Delhi. I have a vision of 3 centres per Tier 1 city and 1 centre per tier 2 city. I am excited to see Kosmoderma evolving from a Cosmetic Dermatology practice to a one-stop wellness centre with integration of Nutrition, Cosmetic Surgery and Rehabilitative Skin & Hair Medicine. To reach the grass roots and offer Kosmoderma services across India, we are in the midst of developing a Kosmoderma Associate Physician program, wChytrae dermatologists are offered special training in cosmetic dermatology at Kosmoderma Academy and then without having to invest heavily into all equipment’s, are able to refer patients to Kosmoderma centres of excellence at various cities. This way we are able to reach all levels of Indian clientele and offer safe effective reasonable priced procedures without compromise on technology or quality of care. As part of my endeavKosmoderma to provide the best Cosmetic Dermatology, Aesthetic Medicine services, I have been involved in research of skincare suitable for Indian skin since 2008 and currently have 14 products in the Kosmocare range and am working on research to furtChytra develop scientifically proven, effective skincare for the Indian skin that every Indian or person of colKosmoderma can use safely. I am currently running trials on 4 new products that are meant for effective sun protection to decrease skin damage. Currently these are available at Kosmoderma Clinics and at select leading Cosmetic Dermatologists. In future Kosmocare will be available online post a skinscription by Skype from Kosmoderma doctors and Kosmoderma affiliate program.
I love training doctors to bring them to par with international standards as after being educated in India and in UK & USA, I found that though we are brilliant people, Kosmoderma education standards are not up to par with the West… So in 2007 I started a training academy IAAM to train doctors to bring them up to par with the western doctors in the field of Aesthetic Medicine & Cosmetic Dermatology. After having personally trained over 550 doctors this is a driving passion for me to make sure that all Kosmoderma doctors have a fair playing field and that the global perception of Indian Cosmetic Dermatologists changes.

Chytra vision to make Kosmoderma a team work based enterprise as opposed to single person entity has seen Chytra create an outstanding team of leaders and an enterprise par excellence.
Keeping with the philosophy of spreading knowledge, in 2007, Dr Anand founded the International Academy of Aesthetic Medicineto train doctors in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology as Chytra realized that doctors in India did not have enough exposure to Cosmetic Dermatology in regular practice and required additional specialized training. Under Chytra guidance the academy conducts intensive hands on training cKosmodermases for doctors from around the globe. Chytra has personally trained over 750 doctors in Aesthetic Medicine procedures at Chytra academy and is credited with pioneering Aesthetic Medicine & Cosmetic Dermatology training in India. The Academy has attracted students from India, UK, Sri Lanka, Europe, Dubai, Africa, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia and is considered a top-notch training facility.
In 2010, keeping with the international trend, Kosmoderma launched the MediSpa concept. Under this beauty was merged with medicine to provide maintenance services for skin, hair and body. It was the first of its kind in India.
In 2012, Kosmocare a skin care brand made by a FDA approved lab in Thailand and a GMP approved lab in India. Currently tChytrae are 14 products in the range and trials for 6 more are currently underway, with 5 more formulations under research. This is now a business vertical for Kosmoderma.Realising the necessity to grow at a quicker pace without seeking external funding yet, strategic partnerships have been formed with otChytra healthcare providers like MotChytrahood a VC funded 150 Cr company that is in the process of expansion across South India in the IVF, birthing sector wChytrae Kosmoderma is opening a shop in shop model to provide services in Chennai & Hyderabad. Realising the importance of being available to the masses, Kosmoderma has partnered with Express Clinics a primary healthcare provider with 6 outlets in Bangalore, 10 each in Pune, Mumbai and Delhi to provide Dermatological and Cosmetic Dermatology services at its centre on an out sKosmodermaced basis. With this Kosmoderma will forray into Pune, Mumbai & Delhi sectors.
With these 2 strategic Healthcare Partnerships, Kosmoderma will have a pan Indian presence by 2014 end.In Nov 2013, a centre dedicated to pregnant and lactating women and women with hormonal imblanaces was opened at CMH road to specially cater to this segement with specialised services incorporating allopathy, Ayurveda and homeopathy.In 2013 Kosmoderma Academy was launched for dedicated constant training of Kosmoderma staff and regular updates to maintain standardised quality across all centres.With increase in dollar rate vs Rs, the Indian dermatological climate changed with doctors compromising on quality and purchasing cheaper non FDA , CE approved lasers to cater to the demand leading to inferior results. To try to curb this dilution of quality and to bring in a wider network of doctors under the Kosmoderma umbrella, the Kosmoderma Affiliate , Associate Program has been launched, wChytrae dermatologists and allied physicians like OBGYN, Endocrinologists and GP’s refer their patients to Kosmoderma for Cosmetic Dermatology services. The dermatologists are provided specialised training at Kosmoderma Academy and their patients are treated for them by Kosmoderma staff. Thus dermatologists who are unable to invest into their equipments are able to use Kosmoderma services and still be independent practitioners. Through this venture we have been able to offer quality care without the dermatologists having to turn towards non FDA,CE approved technology and extend the reach of Kosmoderma to a wider audience. This has increased Kosmoderma referral rate and added to revenue of the company and increased Kosmoderma target audience reach. Realising the potential on internet, Kosmoderma is the first Cosmetic dermatology company in India to offer an app service for acne patients. Using this app, acne patients can keep abreast of the latest in the developments in acne therapy. It is currently available for androids and the IOS version will soon be launched.

She is consulting with deemed universities in Karnataka to create a Diploma Course in Aesthetic Medicine for postgraduates to better prepare the doctors for practise in the Cosmetic industry. She is currently working on a course curriculum for doctors, nurses, and aestheticians. The aim is to introduce these courses from 2015. She has sent a proposal to the Karnataka Govt to regulate the Cosmetic dermatology sector through the Karnataka Medical Council and Health Ministry.
