Dermatologist: Dr. Rachel Day
When you meet Dr. Day, you can’t help but connect the irony of her name and relate it to a new day and fresh approach to nurturing her patients by healthcare in the true sense of the meaning: HEALTH CARE.
Dr. Day has a unique niche to her practice as she offers complete skincare in a personal, approachable setting for the whole family. She is rooted in her belief that a purposeful partnership with patients is the foundation to achieving their skin health goals.
Dr. Day believes the success of her business is the established trust factor she has with her patients. She feels she’s built her practice on integrity with a goal and plan for every patient.
You will be greeted and treated as a valued patient. Dr. Day believes how you look is the first thing people see. She loves educating and treating her patients to be the best version of themselves. When discussing her background in holistic skincare, we asked her to share a bit about what women can do to make the right choices.
Dr. Day’s approach is to understand her patients’ value systems and honoring what matters most. She may ask them how they manage their stress, what their nutrition is like, or she may just have a conversation with them on a friendly, personal level.
Dr. Day was born in New York and raised in New Jersey. Her father is a doctor, and her mother is a registered nurse. She grew up a volleyball athlete and started in college as a business and economics major until she realized her love of art and science. Dr. Day is the mother of a seven-year-old along with four-year-old twins. This doctor does it all with grace and commitment.
Dr. Day believes in a Four Core approach when advising her patients.
- After cleansing in the morning, use Sunscreen SPF every day. Nothing less than 30 spf and preferably mineral-based (tritium dioxide). When outside for long periods in the sun, she suggests reapplication options of products like Skin Better or Colorescience brands.
- Antioxidants such as topical Vitamin C or Ferulic Acid to fight free radicals provide a second layer of protection to support your skin when incorporating this treatment by using small amounts to avoid breakouts, as this is normal in the beginning.
- Retinoid prescription to increase cell turnover and help support collagen. Emphasize the importance to use in the evening only, as sunlight deactivates the effect.
- Moisturizing barrier cream acts as a lubricating film on the skin to prevent water depletion in the skin’s outermost layer, such as Sente Dermal Repair.
When we asked Dr. Day what some of the best treatments to prevent premature aging are, her go-to advice is that the four core steps for treatments that create significant results are micro-needling with PRP with natural growth factors to stimulate collagen.
We cannot forget the effect 2020 had on us. While things like Zoom helped us communicate, it also left us staring at ourselves all day and finding every flaw on our faces or other things we were unhappy with. This prompted many people to address their skincare along with volume restoration, fine lines, wrinkles, thinning lips, and loss of volume around the temples.
If you feel you haven’t been paying attention to the largest organ in your body and want to start with some TLC, Dr. Day is an excellent place to start.
