Dr. Hara Schwartz, who is board certified in dermatology and internal medicine, specializes in both medical and aesthetic dermatology. Dr. Schwartz’s background as a board certified internist makes her a highly qualified medical dermatologist. “I urge all of my patients to have an annual full body skin examination,” says Dr. Schwartz. “Annual body exams and sun protection are our best weapons against skin cancer”. Dr. Schwartz’s artistic talent and creative nature have led her to become one of the finest aesthetic dermatologists in the tristate area. She is well known for her expertise in the use of neurotoxins (Botox® and Dysport®), fillers (Perlane®, Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Radiesse®) and lasers. These tools enable her to create her signature look for patients -- a rested, relaxed, natural appearance. “Less is more,” explains Dr. Schwartz.
A simple daily skin care routine at home, combined with neurotoxins, fillers and/or lasers can take years off our appearance, while maintaining a natural look that communicates confidence and wellness. A 3-minute daily skin regimen, including a gentle cleanser, gentle exfoliation, moisturizer, sunscreen, and a topical retinoid is key to healthy looking skin. “I encourage my patients to buy many drugstore brand products. The larger companies spend a lot of money on research and development; value is not reflected simply by price.”
The appearance of the aging face is a compilation of intrinsic aging (genetics) and extrinsic aging (photo damage). One of the hallmarks of the aging face is the loss of tissue volume and the accentuation of lines and folds. “What we notice when people age” explains Dr. Schwartz “is that the fat pads descend, the cheeks fall and we lose the youthful fullness and roundness of the face.” There has been a paradigm shift from filling the lines to restoring the volume. “Your new face is really about recreating your old face.”
After practicing dermatology in Soho and the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Dr. Schwartz now practices full time in Fishkill. Dr. Schwartz graduated from Bryn Mawr College, completed a post-baccalaureate program at the University of Pennsylvania, and received her medical degree from SUNY Stony Brook Medical School. Dr. Schwartz completed two residencies at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. She began with a 3-year residency in internal medicine followed by a 3-year residency in dermatology, where she served as chief resident. Dr. Schwartz is currently a clinical instructor at Mount Sinai Hospital. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Internal Medicine, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a member of the American Medical Association and the Medical Society of the State of New York.
