Samera from Kenya Describes Her Medical Trip for Melasma Treatment in India and How It Has All Been Worthwhile

36-year-old Samera is a proud Kenyan and an even prouder mother of 4 beautiful children. After the birth of her fourth child, Samera noticed marks on her face. These marks turned out to be Melasma spots. Having been through various laser treatments in her home country, Samera decided to visit India to see for herself the much talked about “world-class healthcare”. In an Interview with Vaidam, she tells us about her treatment and why she would recommend travel to India, to other mothers.


Describe your medical condition?
I had the clearest skin in my 20s, but by the time my fourth pregnancy rolled around in my 30s my face was covered with small spots. I tried lasers, but that turned out to be the worst decision.


When did you first develop these spots?
It was during my fourth pregnancy when I suddenly noticed that the skin on my face seemed freckled. I asked my gynaecologist what the spots were and if they meant anything for my health. She told me that the spots were Melasma spots and that they come with the hormonal territory, and not a big deal. So I went on with pregnancy and life.


When did you begin your treatment?
Five months after my baby was born, I decided to get more serious about treating the spots because my regular cream wasn’t doing the job anymore. It was time to talk to a dermatologist. I made an appointment with a dermatologist to clarify all my questions.”


What instigated your decision to come to India?
It was after a laser treatment gone bad, that I decided that I needed professional help. My skin began flaking and became extra sensitive to sunlight. I never knew that things would get out of hand so quickly. I suppose India is known for cosmetic surgery, this among other decisions was why I finally decided to come to India.


How did you get to know about Vaidam?
A friend of mine had travelled to India the year before, and she was all praise about how well she had been received; basically breaking all my preconceptions about India. She was the one who steered me towards Vaidam and asked to find the best skin hospital in India.


Where did you have your treatment in India?
I had my treatment at Global Hospital in Chennai and was consulted Dr VB Narayanamurthy.


How has your medical trip to India been?
It has been a very smooth trip. All my fears and apprehensions are gone and Vaidam has played a major part in that.


Can you elaborate on how Vaidam helped you during your trip?
First of all my case manager was super nice, she helped me find the best skin doctor in India at a very affordable budget. Appointments were made even before I arrived in India and I did not have to wait. They were constantly in touch and had also accompanied us to the hospital. Not at any moment did we feel at a loss. All-in-all it was a great trip.


How are you feeling now?
I feel great. Day by day, I am noticing my skin return to the smooth, unblemished complexion I’d had five years and two children ago. I would recommend this treatment here for all mothers.
