People often get confused between cosmetologists, dermatologists and cosmetic dermatologists and use these terms inter-changeably. Cosmetic Dermatologists are Skin specialist doctors (M.D.), who first train a residency in dermatology and skin care and are dermatologists. Then, cosmetic Dermatologists like Dr. Rinky Kapoor, acquire further specialized fellowship training in cosmetic care of the skin diseases and treat cosmetic concerns of patients i.e. to remove hair, remove discoloration, to contour the body by means of non-surgical techniques, to shed the extra kilos, etc, going on to establish a career as cosmetic dermatologists. Dr. Kapoor is one of the very few clinicians in India who are globally trained and certified in this promising super-specialty of Cosmetic Dermatology. Cosmetologists, on the other hand, can be from any specialty (not dermatology residency trained). There are specialists who have completed residencies in gynecology, pathology and many others, who go on to practice as cosmetologists, often with very little training and no accreditation. So, for all cosmetic & aesthetic skin issues, it is always better to choose a cosmetic dermatologist, as opposed to just a cosmetologist. Similarly, trichologists are most often general physicians (MBBS), with some short training course in hair. In fact, there are some homeopathic physicians practicing as trichologists, after undergoing 4 day training in hair diseases! They do not have a residency training in dermatology, and it is certainly open to debate if they are as good at spotting hair diseases, treating hair disorders & specifically causing hair growth & preventing hair loss, as a cosmetic dermatologist would be.

Dr. Kapoor acquired her undergraduate medical degree from Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, Mumbai; one of India’s best medical schools. She went ahead to get specialized residency training in Dermatology (MD) and completed her residency from the same institution.
