Welcome! I am Dr. Amy Wechsler, a family dermatologist practicing in New York City. As one of only two doctors in the country board-certified in both dermatology and psychiatry, I specialize in the mind-body connection.As such, I am dedicated to helping patients treat the effects that state of mind and physical behaviors have on the appearance and condition of their skin. I am also the author of “Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Reverse Stress, Aging and Reveal More Youthful, Beautiful Skin,” a book in the RealAge series.I am thrilled to be a part of YouBeauty. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen for many years and always enjoy doing so. My appearances on “The Dr. Oz Show” have been some of my favorite experiences. Dr. Oz, Dr. Roizen and I share the philosophy that all medical treatment is best addressed holistically, and that educating people on how to proactively care for their bodies is of paramount importance.In my practice, I spend a significant amount of time with my patients to thoroughly understand their emotional state of mind and the impact it is having on the outer surface. Then, in addition to treating them medically, I provide them with lifestyle practices that will nurture and care for the body. I also spend much of my time ensuring that patients understand that what they are doing now can negatively affect them later, such as tanning, smoking and skipping sleep.My goal is to share all of the same information with you. From the real deal on sun protection to ways to reverse skin aging, my columns here will offer my best advice to get you looking and feeling your very best.
