Judith Hellman M.D.
Dr. Morin has been working and sharing Manhattan office space with Dr. Judith Hellman, a board certified New York dermatologist and a specialist in dermatological surgery, laser surgery and anti-aging skin treatments. He was impressed by her friendly professional demeanor and her reputation as an impeccably skilled physician.
Receiving her B.A. Magna Cum Laude from Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Dr. Hellman was an accomplished musician before deciding to pursue a career in medicine. Since she made that switch in direction she was on the Dean’s list at Wellesley College where she completed her premedical training and received her MD in 1989 at Mount Sinai School in New York City where she currently practices.
While completing her residency in Dermatology at SUNY Stony Brook, Dr. Hellman was selected as chief resident in Dermatology. She spent several years training and studying the surgical treatment of skin cancers and was an early practitioner in the study and use of lasers for various skin conditions. As a result, Dr. Hellman has developed into one of New York’s laser resurfacing specialists, and is a firm believer in the benefits of new, effective technologies such as the Refirme procedure. It is a revolutionary aesthetic treatment that usually results in an immediate lifting and firming of the skin with significant improvement in skin elasticity after a few sessions. More than that, it is a painless procedure with no downtime. Dr. Hellman also specializes in laser treatment for cystic acne with extraordinary success.
Dr. Judith Hellman has been in private practice in New York City since 1993, becoming a board certified dermatologist the following year. Vast experience and expertise is essential in a specialist and integral to creating a trusting relationship between patient and doctor. Patients are often comforted and reassured by the fact that they are in experienced, safe hands. Her fluency in English, Hebrew and Hungarian has helped her build a reputation as a genuine ‘people person.’
As a cosmetic dermatologist, she spends every day treating patients’ skin for both medical and cosmetic purposes. As a result, Dr. Hellman is an expert in every procedure that she performs, unlike doctors that often perform procedures out of their area of specialty. It is not only her background and training however which she prides herself upon, but Dr. Hellman also integrates into her work her sense of aesthetics, so deeply rooted in her background in music and art. It is this that makes her certain that after every procedure patients walk out with natural, beautiful looking skin.
Dr. Judith Hellman is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Laser Surgery and Medicine, Dermatological Society of Greater New York and others. She is currently an associate professor in the Department of Dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, and has written a number of papers for medical journals on a range of topics. As a NYC cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Hellman has made numerous appearances on national and local radio and TV programs, as well as interviews in consumer magazines on medical and cosmetic dermatology topics.
