NewBeauty Remembers Dr. Fredric Brandt's Greatest Contributions

With a heavy heart we say goodbye to a true pioneer in the world of dermatology, beauty and aesthetic medicine. He was a loyal board member who served NewBeauty well and provided the magazine with groundbreaking information; we are saddened by the loss of Dr. Fredric Sheldon Brandt, a true wunderkind in his own right.

Dr. Brandt forever shaped the world of dermatology, both in terms of medicine, science and what today’s patient knows as anti-aging and skin care. He was an innovator in the arena of eponymous skincare, a true first, and paved the way for others to follow with his targeted line of beauty products that addressed everything from lines and wrinkles to acne and inflammation and the effects of glycation. His prevalent use of antioxidants and vitamins was one that he so closely studied and perfected at his days at Sloane Kettering. His work and vision laid the groundwork for many to follow in his footsteps.

A trusted source for NewBeauty as both a board member for nearly a decade and an expert we consistently looked to as an avenue for groundbreaking technology, innovation and research, Brandt forged the use of injectables, fillers and lasers way beyond his time. A scientist, chemist and larger-than-life dermatologist, his thinking was dimensional, his methodology was revolutionary and his infectious personality was everlasting upon all who interacted with him. A validated genius in today’s world.

Incessantly experimenting with aesthetic and cosmetic dermatology to enhance and restore a youthful appearance, Brandt was a forerunner and principal investigator for dozens of FDA clinical trials and momentous scientific papers, always improving upon what already existed to make it that much better for the patient and the industry. Even in the days leading up to his untimely death, Brandt was continually working to make the anti-aging world better than it already was, upping the ante by cocktailing noninvasive treatments with fillers to provide additional results and satisfaction to the scientific community and his loyal supporters.

A celebrity in his own right, Dr. Brandt provided the beauty world, and our brand, with indispensible and invaluable information to segue his extensive information of how we face aging at a deeper, cellular level. He parlayed his knowledge of treating these concerns effectively through various avenues: perfecting countless techniques in office and passing that information down through science and product. Even if you never stepped foot in his Miami or Manhattan offices, you were bound to be affected in some manner by his erudition that so many of his colleagues took to heart and will never forget.

Although the beauty world has lost a true visionary and one of its most beloved stars, his life’s work and legacy lives on. Dr. Brandt has forever made an indelible mark on the face of aging, one that can never be erased. Thank you Dr. Brandt for all of your contributions, for your consistent dedication and research and for providing the world with the ability to age gracefully and find beauty and harmony in all of us.
