Beauty is embedded in our being.  It is the harmony and balance that gives us comfort.  It is not just physical, but also emotional and intellectual.
Can Beauty be defined and objectively measured without bias?  Can we quantify ways in which it has affected our world?  Or is Beauty truly only in the eye of the beholder? 


Dr. Shalini Gupta is a dermatologist with a strong passion for Cosmetic Dermatology. She is a speaker, educator and trainer to other physicians and providers on aesthetic procedures. Starting in 2001 with two lasers, her practice has evolved to include 25 cutting edge technologies to service every aesthetic need of her patients. The practice utilizes the latest evidence based aesthetic procedures and techniques to improve face, body and skin concerns. She is also board certified in anti-aging medicine and has studied Ayurvedic medicine and continues to incorporate those disciplines into her aesthetic practice.  Dr. Gupta’s patients love her artistry, sincerity and thoughtful comprehensive approach for helping them look and feel their very best.

Dr. Gupta graduated from Miami University in 2 years with a 4.0 GPA. She received her MD from Harvard Medical School in 1996 with honors. She completed an internship at Brown University in a combined Plastic Surgery/General Surgery program, after which she completed a fellowship in Photomedicine with Dr. Nicholas Soter at the prestigious NYU Medical Center’s dermatology department in Manhattan. She subsequently trained at the University of Washington in dermatology and returned to Cincinnati when her first son, (currently a Harvard undergraduate) was born  to be close to family.

Dr. Gupta loves spending time with her two sons and family, traveling, painting and dancing.  Dr. Gupta spent most of her childhood in Brazil and Germany before moving to the US and speaks German along with Hindi.
