ABOUT DR. DAY
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 confer” 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?
It’s the number-one thing that keeps your skin fresh and youthful. I always talk about skin care with my patients, and everyone leaves with a unique skin-care protocol and regimen in hand, whether it’s drugstore level or prestige, or even from my own line, Esteem Skin Care by Dr. Doris Day. I used to work in a research lab and I’ve worked extensively in product development, so I study all the products and ingredients, as well as the science behind them. I put a lot of effort into skin care because I know that what my patients put on their skin will make a very big difference in how they look.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The relationships with my patients. Some of them have been with me since my practice 15 years ago. I get to be there for them and have an impact on them throughout so man of their lifetime milestones. I feel so grateful and blessed to get to do what I do.

Ask Dr. Day
HOW DO YOU ACHIEVE A GLOBAL AESTHETIC IN FACIAL REJUVENATION?
My focus is to enhance and rejuvenate the whole face as a global aesthetic and help my patients see their most beautiful features and how they can enhance their overall beauty balance so they look younger and more beautiful.
WHAT IS AGELESS BEAUTY?
With science and knowledge, we know how to keep the skin fresh, rejuvenated and radiant for longer- it’s all about care. I help naturally enhance your best features so that you look and feel like the very best and most beautiful version of yourself at every age for truly ageless beauty.
WHY IS EDUCATION IMPORTANT TO YOU?
I teach, I lean and 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.
“Everyone deserves to age gracefully and feel beautiful,” says Dr. Day. She points out that there is a difference between aging and getting old. “You will age,” she says, “but that doesn’t mean you have to sink, sag and wrinkle and look old. You can look beautiful at every age by doing what’s in your power with treatments and products, as well as with your lifestyle habits.” Dr. Day explains each treatment option from the deep to the superficial based on the patient’s individual characteristics and needs. “We’re not just chasing lines and wrinkles anymore,” she says. “I look at the face in a global way and create balance for a natural, beautiful look. For sinking, we use fillers to replace lost volume, and for sagging, we utilize lifting technologies like Ultherapy and Pelleve. If the patient has a lot of sun damage or deep lines and wrinkles, we can incorporate neuromodulators and fractional laser, and to eliminate acne scars, we can use eMatrix or our new SkinPen, a needling device that triggers synthesis for smoother skin.”
