Labeled a “Super Doctor” by The New York Times and named a “Top Doc” by Castle Connelly, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Marina Peredo brings her concept of aesthetic artistry to a whole new level at her Skinfluence headquarters in Manhattan. Believing dermatologists can have a direct impact on someone’s confidence, Dr. Peredo strives to uncover and enhance beauty that is already present. By employing a less-is-more philosophy, she customizes her treatments to reveal a patient’s unique self. “Confidence is powerful and sexy, yet too often we let skin and body imperfections undermine our confidence,” she says. “Using multiple modalities, we can help you look and feel your most confident!”

When treating superficial sun damage is it only aesthetic or would you be treating something that is potentially cancerous?

Certain treatments like certain peels would do something that's called porodynamics therapy and that peel will address the precancerous spot. In something like that if the patient has a lot of precancerous spots, and skin cancers I'm sure it's covered by insurance. Some of the laser treatments, because they do the reversal of the skin damage, will help prevent skin cancers in the future.

About Me

How would you characterize yourself?

I'm a fan of all things new and noteworthy, carefully balancing high tech with high touch, in addition to educating my patients.

How would your patients describe your approach?

I'm very artistic and have been described as a 'Michelangelo' by patients.

How do you spend your free time?

One of my personal passions is sculpting, which complements and enhances my work as a cosmetic dermatologist. That creativity plays a positive role in the outcome of the care my patients receive, and is complemented by the Beautiphication technique.

  1. My skin has so much sun damage and lots of brown spots. I’d like to do something on the surface only. What kind of peel goes deepest and is most refreshing?
    What our experts say:

    You can either do a superficial chemical peel or a combination of things like microdermabrasion, that uses crystals, or there is light treatment called IPL that also works great for superficial sun damage. There are a variety of procedures that can be done.

  2. Do injections like Botox, Dysport, Restylane and others hurt? Do you bruise when you get them? And do you have to stay home from work for a day or two after getting them?
    What our experts say:

    It is a needle so I would say it's slightly uncomfortable but for Restylane normally patients get numbed with a topical anesthetic. It's tolerable. You rarely bruise from Botox and Dysport but occasionally you will from filler. With Botox and Dysport you don't need to stay home from work. With fillers if it's a small bruise most of the time it can be covered with concealer. Most patients do not stay home from work when they get injections.

  3. Which laser treatment can get rid of broken blood vessels on my face? There are some tiny vessels near my eyes and some bigger ones on my cheeks. Are these removable with the same laser or do I need multiple appointments?
    What our experts say:
    The Vbeam® pulsed dye laser is excellent for treating broken capillaries and any other vascular lesions, whether they are tiny capillaries or larger ones. Usually several treatments are required, and I normally space them four to six weeks apart for my patients.
  4. I have random veins on my nose and other parts of my body. Are they spider veins and can they be removed?
    What our experts say:

    They can be called spider veins. Normally that term is mostly used for the leg veins. On the face normally we do it with lasers, not injections. With the legs we use sclerotherapy.

  5. I got one Botox injection, how long should it last and will I need to get others to maintain the look?
    What our experts say:

    On average Botox injections should last 3-1/2 to four months. Studies actually show that if for the first year they put Botox injections on a schedule and consistently do them every 3-1/2 to four months they're going to last a lot longer because they will get better longevity and that's what I suggest to my patients.


Age is just a number

Sabah D.
"That’s a phrase I hear all the time from women who are rationalizing their aging physical appearance while trying to stay young inside. I say, “Why can’t we feel young inside and out?” I pride myself on healthy living. Keeping myself in great shape is rewarding in many ways but also hard work. That’s where Dr. Peredo comes in because who couldn’t use a little assistance now and then to ward off the effects of time? Dr. Peredo is not just a doctor but a consultant and now a friend. I rely on her for her honest opinion. She truly wants what’s best for her clients and that is why I will never go anywhere else. Age is a number but one I embrace because with the help of Dr. Peredo, I feel and look like I’m in my twenties!"
