Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.
