NEA NB56 Waldorf Heidi V8 Profile
NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2022

Dr. Heidi A. Waldorf

57 North Middletown Road, Nanuet, NY, 10954
I’m growing older and looking younger right along with my patients.


Patients travel from near and far to Waldorf Dermatology Aesthetics because of Dr. Heidi A. Waldorf’s reputation for listening to patients’ concerns, formulating a realistic treatment plan and delivering natural-looking results. Her goal is to achieve the “Benjamin Button Effect,” based on the story of a man who ages backward. “I want my patients to hear, ‘You look younger every time I see you,’ not, ‘What did you have done?’” Her definition of “younger” is the same for her patients as it is for herself: feeling confident and looking healthy, well-rested and effortlessly youthful. As a 55-year-old breast cancer survivor, Dr. Waldorf understands that life is not always easy, and that knowing you look good can go a long way to making you feel good. She combines this empathy with an Ivy League education and status as a global opinion leader to provide each of her patients with the very best treatment options.

A Minute With

  1. Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?

    My goal is for you to look like you:
    the well-rested, energized, healthy,
    version of you. No one should see
    the “work” that was done, just the
    naturally youthful results. My
    goal is to achieve what I call the
    “Benjamin Button effect”

  2. For what are you best known?

    My patients say they trust me
    to keep them looking naturally
    radiant, youthful and healthy—not
    “done.” I believe people should see
    you, not my work. To paraphrase
    Genesis, I have “an invisible touch.”
    I am also known for being very
    honest and direct. Patients know
    I will keep them from doing too
    much and will refer them out to
    another physician if I think they
    will get to their goals faster with
    a procedure I don’t do.

  3. Career-defining procedure

    Long-lasting fillers have been
    a game changer in cosmetic
    dermatology. I have the ability
    to provide true three-dimensional
    improvement for a healthy,
    vibrant appearance

  4. The most common medical myth i’ve heard

    Patients frequently think one
    procedure will do everything.
    I explain that when it comes to
    noninvasive rejuvenation, it’s like
    asking if you should buy the shirt
    or the skirt or the earrings. It takes
    a combination to make an outfit

  5. What i love most about my profession

    I am incredibly lucky to be in a field
    where I get to establish long-term
    relationships with patients. We all
    go through the same things in life
    and I have the privilege of sharing
    those with my patients. As a bonus,
    cosmetic dermatology taps into my
    personal strengths. I’m outgoing,
    visual and great with my hands

  6. What is your favorite laser procedure?

    It isn’t new or sexy, but the Fraxel
    DUAL performs and patients love
    the results. It really was made for my
    patients who did more damage than
    they should have in their teens and
    20s and learned to take care of
    their faces before their neck, chest
    and arms. With the Fraxel DUAL,
    I can safely and effectively improve
    the color and texture of the skin
    on your face and body with little
    downtime. Patients who never liked
    their skin before tell me they get
    compliments on their “peaches and
    cream” complexion

  7. What are your most requested procedures?

    Friends tend to tell friends about
    Thermage and CoolSculpting so
    people frequently come in requesting
    those procedures. Otherwise, most
    of my patients come in just wanting to
    look better. They are “tired of looking
    tired” and want my recommendations
    for a plan

  8. What is the most exciting thing going on in your field right now?

    In the last year we’ve seen the launch
    of exciting new fillers. Restylane
    Refyne and Defyne are very pliable,
    making them ideal for areas of
    movement. Juvéderm Vollure and
    Volbella have the same Vycross
    technology as Voluma that reduces
    swelling and improves longevity

  9. How do you provide the best patient experience?

    My patients have so many pressing
    responsibilities at home and work
    and in their communities. From the
    moment they enter my office, I want
    them to have a sense of calm and
    know they are our first priority

  10. What is the most rewarding part of your profession?

    I enjoy getting to know my patients
    and sharing our life experiences.
    I get to do that while also using my
    mind and hands to achieve tangible
    results. We all get to grow old while
    looking young together!
