A Minute With
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PROFESSION
As a dermatologist, I play a
special role helping patients
look and feel their best
WHAT SETS MY PRACTICE APART
I specialize in tailored, personalized treatment plans that introduce the newest technologies and tried-and-true rejuvenation techniques. It’s amazing what natural-looking results can be achieved with Botox alone
THE FUTURE OF MY FIELD
Patients are looking for more natural aesthetic and holistic care. As physicians, we have to expand our efforts to address integrated needs
MOST MEMORABLE PATIENT REACTION
When they look in the mirror and I see them smile and their eyes widen with joy as they see how improved and natural they look
MY ULTIMATE SKIN-CARE ADVICE
Whether it’s from a drugstore or my own line, skin care is always important. You can’t go wrong with a vitamin C serum, a retinol and a broad-spectrum sunscreen
THE PROJECT I’M MOST EXCITED ABOUT
My goal is to never stop learning and evolving. My latest project is a book called Skinfluence that explores the connection between our total body health and the impact it has on our skin
MY DEFINITION OF BEAUTY
There's beauty in all of us. I focus on helping patients see and celebrate their beauty, not their flaws. I help them enhance the features that are uniquely their own
My number-one rule is to never chase lines and wrinkles or "fight" to look younger. I always evaluate the face as a global aesthetic unit as I seek proportion and balance
WHAT NEW SERVICES ARE YOU EXCITED TO OFFER?
We’re excited to offer Juvéderm® Vollure at our practice, a newly approved filler that lasts 18 months or longer and helps add gorgeous contours and balance to the face
WHY IS SKIN CARE SO IMPORTANT?
Proper skin care is an essential part of taking care of your health and appearance and it helps maintain and enhance the results we help you achieve with in-office procedures. I
think of it like brushing your teeth between dental cleanings; it’s a daily upkeep you can’t go without!
WHAT ARE YOU BEST KNOWN FOR?
My philosophy is grounded in
the idea of ‘aging gracefully’ and
embracing the beauty that exists
without chasing lines and wrinkles
There’s a difference between aging gracefully and aging helplessly, and I want to help you age gracefully!
WHAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
Sleep! When I have a good night’s rest I look better, I think better and feel better
THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Warmhearted, insightful, skilled
WHY IS A LONG-TERM TREATMENT PLAN IMPORTANT?
Our skin continues to change and evolve as we age. What your skin needs at 20 is not what it needs at 45. Long-term treatment plans help us maintain a conversation through each milestone and make sure we’re aligned with your goals and needs
THE MOST UNIQUE ASPECT OF MY PRACTICE
Each patient receives their own personal aesthetic blueprint, designed just for them, to guide them through the best nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate their beauty in a natural way without looking “done”
THE ACCOLADES THAT MEAN THE MOST
I’m thrilled to have been elected to the board of directors at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery this year and to be continuing my lectures around the world. Taking
care of my patients is my number one priority and being a key opinion leader and supporting future physicians in the field is a great privilege
HOW DO YOU SHOW PATIENTS YOU CARE POST-TREATMENT?
We review and create a special skin-care regimen and blueprint for every patient to complement and enhance their treatments

At the heart of the Upper East Side in New York City is the pristine, private practice of board-certified dermatologist, author, radio talk show host and medical journalist, Dr. Doris Day. Always at the cutting edge of new laser technologies, aesthetic treatments and medical innovations, her passion and goal is to enhance every patient’s natural beauty and create a warm and enriching experience. Dr. Day believes aging successfully and gracefully is dependent on a balanced treatment plan that addresses the entire face and skin. “My role is to educate my patients on how our skin ages and that only 10 percent of this is determined by genetics,” says Dr. Day. “The amazing technology that exists today allows us to make subtle adjustments that can have transformative results and leave patients looking their very best.”
About My Practice:
What is unique about your approach?
I find that I am really a doctor of self-esteem, and oftentimes I have to dig deeper and go “under the skin” to really understand what motivates a person’s visit in order to best help them achieve their goals. I’ve learned that it’s not always what it looks like in the mirror—there may be more behind their “area of concern” than what can be seen with the naked eye, and in order to best rejuvenate them, it helps to have them see themselves in a more balanced light.
Why is a skin-care routine so important?
Each patient leaves with the best regimen for them, whether it is drugstore, designer, or from my own line, Esteem Skin Care by Dr. Doris Day. Using the right ingredients can help your skin look and feel its best and also enhance the in-office treatments I provide. Additionally, I work in product development so that I can understand the scientific background.
What is ageless beauty?
I help naturally enhance your best features so that you look and feel like your best, most beautiful self at every age. That’s ageless beauty. It’s all about the right treatments and proper care. Thanks to advances in science and aesthetics, we now know how to restore and enhance the skin so that it always looks youthfully radiant.
How do you achieve a global aesthetic in facial rejuvenation?
I create a unique treatment plan for each patient using the most advanced devices and treatments available. Achieving a global aesthetic is really about rejuvenating the whole face to enhance your overall beauty balance. My goal is for each patient to leave looking natural, beautiful and youthful today and for years to come.
What do you like most about your job?
The relationships with my patients. Some of them have been with me since I opened my practice 15 years ago. I get to be there for them and have an impact on them throughout so many of their lifetime milestones. I feel so grateful and blessed to get to do what I do.
How is education important to you?
I teach, I learn and I continue to grow and improve my craft so that my patients’ results are natural, beautiful and look like they’ve had nothing done, but they just look great.

Concerned with signs of aging, especially lines around her mouth, eyes and lower face, this 56-year-old patient visited Dr. Day. “I performed Juvéderm, Botox and Juvéderm Voluma injections over the course of two treatments, as well as a laser peel on her entire face in a third session,” says the dermatologist. “The result is beautiful, youthful and healthy-looking skin.”
A Global Approach to Aging Gracefully
“Everyone deserves to age gracefully and feel beautiful,” says Dr. Day. “I help my patients understand that only 10 percent of how our skin ages is genetic, which means there is so much we can do to help it age successfully. My approach involves looking at the face as a global aesthetic, and creating a unique plan for each patient to achieve a balanced, beautiful, natural look. We use fillers like Juvéderm Voluma® and Sculptra® to replace lost volume, Ultherapy for sagging, neuromodulators and lasers for sun damage and our new EndyMed microneedling/radio-frequency device that smooths the skin for acne scars and stretch marks.”
Forget the Facelift by Dr. Doris Day
In her book, Forget the Facelift, Dr. Day explains her four comprehensive steps to achieving healthy, beautiful skin without surgery. Dr. Day shares the secret that helped her lose 50 pounds without dieting, as well as ingredients that can sabotage your skin. From at-home remedies that can spot-treat problem areas to product recommendations, nutritional tips and the latest cutting-edge treatments, the book examines practical, creative and surprisingly easy ways to achieve youthful, luminous skin, as well as how to optimize and maintain results.
Esteem Skin Care by Dr. Doris Day
Beautiful, healthy skin has a powerful impact on self-esteem and is often a reflection of your overall health and well-being. Dr. Day has extensive experience in product development and has worked in a research lab studying the effects of retinoids and antioxidants on skin cells. She has helped develop several major skin-care lines and is regularly consulted by leading brands on new ingredients and formulations. “Esteem Skin Care is the result of years of dedication and research for the highest-quality active ingredients and the best possible formulations to rejuvenate, protect, enhance and promote beautiful, healthy, radiant skin,” says Dr. Day.

Q. Which new body-contouring treatment are you excited about?
What our experts say:
The noninvasive body-contouring tool I have been waiting for is finally here! FDA-approved Vanquish uses multipolar radio frequency to help get rid of stubborn fat and works especially well on the belly and love handles. There is no pain or downtime, and the device doesn’t even touch the skin during the treatment. Patients have told me that they can now wear clothing that they hadn’t been able to wear for more than 10 years, which makes them (and me) so happy.
Q. How can you use fillers to make your patients look more beautiful and rejuvenated?
What our experts say:
I think it’s quite magical that by injecting filler like Juvéderm Voluma (which I love), in just the right spots, I can make the eyes appear more open, add a lifted appearance to the corners of the mouth, and make the overall face look completely revived. With precise placement of filler, I can rejuvenate the face to look so natural, that oftentimes I have to show patients both sides of their face because they can’t tell the difference—they just know they look better. When I show them one half of their face compared to the other, they see the “magic trick” that rejuvenated their face without making it look “done.”
