DATUK Dr Inder Kaur eats, sleeps and breathes wellness. For the last 25 years, her passion has been to help people live a full life with strong mental and physical health.
This diminutive, winsome girl from Sungai Petani with a mixed Punjabi and Chinese blood has set up healthcare centres that, among others, specialise in aesthetic and hair restoration with the motto: Look Good, Feel Good.
“When people look good, their outlook on life changes, ” she said in a recent interview.
“They become more confident, more pragmatic and thus, contribute to positive vibes among family and friends.”
In particular, hair restoration has a lifelong effect on an individual that resonates well with society.
So far, she has performed 1,000,000 grafts hair restoration procedures on over 5,000 satisfied clients worldwide.
From her work, she has earned awards and accolades that recognise her contribution to society.
Last year alone, she won the Global Health, Asia Pacific Awards 2020, the Global Excellence Award 2020 and Anugerah Ikon Usahawan 2020.
As the chief executive officer, director, and founder of Inder Aesthetic Sdn Bhd, Dr Inder is also the president of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Malaysia Society. She has a letter of privileging and credentialing from the Ministry of Health to practise Aesthetic Medicine and is also an active member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). Dr Inder is the only female Malaysian doctor who is a Diplomate of The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. Besides that, Dr Binder is also board-certified in aesthetic medicine by the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine.
She lives by the maxim: Wellness is about inner and external beauty. Beauty starts from within.
In other areas of life, Dr Inder had to deal with her own share of challenges but she takes these in her stride with an outlook that is positive and with an ability to turn risks into opportunities.
Some industry players consider her as an aesthetic guru who accentuates her work with creativity and innovation.
With her regular clientele, Dr Inder is more than a medical doctor. She is also a counsellor providing a sympathetic ear to their non-aesthetic issues, a skill and trait that has been picked up by her dedicated staff.
To her, each client is different. Special care and attention are paid to their needs and all treatments are customised.
Her passion and enthusiasm for what she does is infectious - it spreads quickly to others who come away refreshed and energised.
She attributes her drive, passion and compassion to her family environment where her late father, a hospital assistant, had instilled in her and her sibling’s strong positive values that underscore service to society.
As for her plans in the future? Dr Inder is planning to extend her global reach so that others too can benefit from embracing a healthy lifestyle.
Discussions are underway to initially set up hair restoration centres in Jakarta and Manila.
“The whole thing is passion. When I am working, I don’t think I am working, I am oblivious of the outside world.”
What else would she like to do?
“I wish to create more educational platforms to engage more people around the world.”
Her enduring mantra is: Hair is your crown that you never take out.”
Another pet project of Dr Inder is research and development. To this end, she hopes to collaborate with a local university in the field of medicine and pharmacy to conduct research and development in instruments and products.
Her organisation is now exploring simulation, animation, predictive technologies built-in notification, and cloud image libraries to create a client-centric application to serve them better.
