Anjali is a 1989 Chemical engineering graduate from Pune University. She started her career with Hyderabad Met-Chem (Pharma Equipment manufacturer) as Estimation & Design Engineer in 1995. In March 1997, she got posted as Co-ordination Manager with Alfa Laval in Bangladesh. In 1998 she got elevated to the post of Country Manager of De Laval (Tetra Laval Group) managing business of Dairy plants across Bangladesh. After a successful stint in De Laval for 2 years, she decided to start her own set-up & returned to India. After scanning business models for Medical Transcription, Animation training, Call-center for TV Channels in USA, Retail Industry training, finally decided to enter Cosmetic Dermatology segment in Bangalore. The factors for decision making were:
- Initial set-up funding requirements
- Marketing network
- Cash-flow needs
- Sustainable operation
- Overall growth/ revolutions in respective segments
To understand nitty-gritties of cosmetic skin and hair treatments and the advanced laser technology, she took over running clinic in Bangalore and operated the same for almost one year. After gaining confidence, she set up her own center at Indira Nagar, Bangalore in July 2005. This New Look Laser Clinic is in partnership with Delhi based New Look brand. The set-up has most advanced laser machines to provide skin treatments such as Scar, Acne, Pigmentation, unwanted hair, targeted body fat reduction etc. The center also provides dermatological and cosmetic treatments such as Vitiligo (White patches on skin), Botox & Fillers etc. More than 50,000 patients have been treated so far from South India as well as Middle East countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar & UAE.
Owing to the steep growth & demand for hair services, she decided to launch a focused entity under her own Kayakalph brand in August 2009. This Bangalore based new clinic provides Nonsurgical baldness treatment & hair replacement therapies such as hair weaving, hair bonding, hair extension, wigs for Cancer patients. The center imports customized hair patches to match colour & texture of patient’s natural hair and has treated patients from South India as well as from African countries & Middle East.
With successful journey of a decade, she decided to set-up another centre in Pune in June 2013. The new center encompasses all Laser skin & hair treatments including spa-salon under one roof and Kayakalph brand.
All the clinics/centers have experienced Dermatologists and a team of well-trained skin therapists to provide & supervise all the treatments.
Currently, there is a huge increased awareness about personal grooming in the Metro-Man and have contributed equally along-with Women for the large growth of cosmetic industry.
The cosmetic industry has witnessed large growth and at the same time created stiff competition in metro cities and hence Anjali is now planning to expand business through franchise and partnerships models in mid-cities across South India. This would provide employment & generate entrepreneurship opportunities for urban India in sync with current GOI’s new growth mantras and also help in building confident personalities to face challenges of future.
Kayakalph – the name suggests “complete transformation of body & soul” through innovative and ethical practices.
