It isn’t everyday that I get to enter a Park Avenue brownstone with an exterior that is breathtaking to say the least and yet, somehow, is only a reflection of the immaculate beauty you walk into. But a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing just that. With a minimalistic and chic ambiance, the office of the one and only Dr. Lara Devgan, an internationally acclaimed plastic and reconstructive surgeon, is equally as intriguing as it is inviting.
Immaculate in decor and tidiness, the state of the office reflects the approach Dr. Devgan takes with each of her patients. Top that off with an over the top friendly and beyond professional staff, and the love that develops for this office is near immediate. As I commuted into NYC for this meeting, I was far from cool and collected. In fact, I would be lying if I said that I was not just a “tad” bit intimidated, after all I was about to sit in a room one on one with THE Dr. Devgan, one of the ultimate best hospital-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeons the industry has been fortunate enough to have been blessed with. I had researched her for months, and given her 100,000 plus Instagram following alone (in addition to her countless accolades), I was in awe of her talent, success and drive.
Best known for her passion, specifically for cosmetic surgery of the face and body as well as reconstructive surgery for breast cancer, skin cancer and facial injuries, Dr. Lara Devgan is truly an enigma. Not only because she is a board-certified plastic surgeon and a diplomate of the America Board of Plastic Surgery, having scored in the top 3% of all plastic surgeons NATIONWIDE (yes, the TOP 3%! NATIONWIDE!), but she is an attending plastic surgeon at various hospitals including Lenox Hill Hospital, Greenwich Hospital, and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Infirmary, where she teaches plastic surgery residents and fellows. As if that weren’t enough, she is a medical expert for ABC News, an editorial consultant for The Lancet, a worldwide lecturer on surgical topics and a consultant on plastic surgical issues for a number of groups and companies.
Dr. Devgan has been named the #1 female plastic surgeon in New York by RateMDs, featured as a “Super Doctors Rising Star” plastic surgeon in The New York Times Magazine, listed in “America’s Top Plastic Surgeons” by Consumers’ Research Council, and the list quite literally goes on and on and on. And, just as I am trying to force myself to stop listing off her incredible endless accomplishments, I cannot help but throw in this one last cherry to finish off the tremendous heavenly sundae that is Dr. Devgan: on top of ALL of this, this superwoman has FIVE CHILDREN.
But what is most remarkable about Dr. Devgan is her humble attitude and empathetic disposition. Despite having been straight up full-body-sweat nervous in anticipation of this consultation, I was quickly put as ease by her calm, nonjudgmental attitude, her patience to explain every question I had with a thorough and non-rushed approach (despite her full waiting area) and most of all, her genuine caring in understanding exactly what my goals were. While Dr. Devgan performs all sorts of surgeries, my visit was in fact to have a consultation regarding my skincare regime. Having always been a minimalist when it came to skin maintenance, I felt it was time to step up my skin game (fine, I started to see fine lines and freaked out) – the bottom line is that the time had arrived to get going on some preventative tactics to preserve my skin as much as possible without going under the needle…at least not quite yet.
Dr. Devgan created the skincare line called Dr. Devgan Scientific Beauty, a luxury medical-grade skin care line. Living true to her word Dr. Devgan was inspired to formulate the perfect variety of products that would allow natural results without obvious signs of surgery all while remaining committed to restoring and rejuvenating the face and body. For each patient, Dr. Devgan personally designs a regime that will meet your specific needs and she has the utmost of sincerity in doing so.
This incredible skincare line not only puts the over saturated market of beauty products to shame but Dr. Devgan has ensured time and time again that it is of the best quality and the most effective of its type. Personally testing each product herself and investing heavily in large-scale scientific research, Dr. Devgan is beyond confident that her products are not only the best but that they provide results, and from the very first use, I can personally attest that this is nothing short of the truth. With over 18 years in the laboratory science and clinical medicine arena, Dr. Devgan has had nearly two decades of experience to perfect the precise formulation of skincare products unlike any we have seen before.
Personally speaking, despite my previous minimal skincare regime (do not use make-up remover face wipes and call that a regime GG’s) I am the first to admit that I have a mild obsession with skin. I admire beautiful skin and those who take the time to prioritize taking care of it. I also idolize those, such as Dr. Devgan, who are so deeply committed to helping people feel more secure and get the results they want. Within just a few weeks of using only three of Dr. Devgan’s magical products, I saw results that were not only noticeable to me but to friends and family – I even had strangers commenting on the fresh and youthful look of my naturally glowing skin… did I mention these compliments came flying when I was not wearing a stitch of makeup!?
Using the Platinum Microdermabrasion scrub 2-3 times a week, this powerful combination of various ingredients such as green tea leaf, apple, lemon extract and sugar exfoliants shed the dull skin from the surface and thus unveiling a new layer of skin that was close to that of a baby. As your skin adjusts to this scrub your skin tone, texture and elasticity improves as the non-abrasive exfoliation diminishes the once dull skin to a healthy, radiant finish.
I actually loved this product so much that I had to keep notes of how often I used it so that I didn’t overdo it!
The second product that Dr. Devgan added to my regime was the Platinum Glow Serum to be applied every morning to a clean face. This serum is extremely light in weight and gives a very ‘fresh’ appearance. Formulated to stimulate cellular regeneration, this serum reduces fine lines, wrinkles and deep creases all while brightening the skin.
Lastly, Dr. Devgan advised that I use the Platinum Vitamin C and Luminous Night Serum each night before bed. Applying a very small amount to a clean face the combination of antioxidants preserves healthy, dewy skin. Regular use of this product not only assists with collagen production, but its proven formula contains Ferulic Acid to enhance photo-protection of the skin against UV damage by 8 times and reduce sunburned cells by 96%.

After mere weeks of using just a few of Dr. Devgan’s incredible products I could not only see the difference in my skin, but I could feel it. As each day passes, it seems as if the fine lines are fading more and more and, in all seriousness, it looks as if I have been drinking from the fountain of youth!
