A Dermatologist and Skin Cancer Surgeon on What Lasers Can Do and Why Race Plays into Her Work
Play • 56 min

What are the best techniques for smoothing crow’s-feet? Is the phrase “Black don’t crack” true? What really can be done with lasers? How do you freshen someone up without making them look “done”? What does it mean to specialize in skin of color? NYC-based Michelle Henry, MD, a Mount Sinai– and Harvard-trained dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon, has brilliant, super useful answers to questions on everything from how to feel and look our best as we age to whether there’s an “ideal” facial structure—and it’s all on the latest episode of The Beauty Closet. Henry has the kind of reassuring humor you’d expect from a lifelong girlfriend and a perspective on what it means to feel beautiful and confident in a wider sense—beyond in-office treatments and supercreams, race, age, and even her own aesthetic techniques. It’s just an incredible episode. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)
