Dr. Michael Eidelman is a board certified dermatologist specializing in the art of aesthetic medicine. He is an internationally known cosmetic injector, lecturer, teacher and a well-respected member of the medical dermatology community. He is an alumnus of Cornell University, received his Doctorate in Medicine from the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine and completed his training at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York and Cook County Medical Center in Chicago.

His training is unique having done specialty externships at Valladolid Hospital in Spain, Soroka Medical Center in Israel, Hospital Garrahan in Argentina and the Papago Indian Reservation in Arizona.
His fascination with dermatology began in medical school when he discovered a growth on his leg. After a biopsy and surgical removal it was determined that the growth, a juvenile melanoma, was not life threatening. The positive experiences with his doctors sparked an interest in dermatology and the study of skin cancer. He lectures regularly on skin cancer prevention and participates in skin cancer screenings as an advocate of early detection and treatment.
Dr. Eidelman has always been interested in the arts. For several years he studied ceramic making and, after much training and experience, taught wheel classes in a pottery cooperative in downtown New York where he became a partner. His appreciation for the beauty of form, artistic eye and dexterity carried over into his use of fillers and injectables to sculpt the face to enhance appearance and disguise signs of aging in his patients.
Dr. Eidelman’s passion in working with the aesthetics of the face has grown to include a wide variety of cosmetic treatments, facial fillers, Botulinum toxins and lasers. Recognized as an expert cosmetic injector he is a member of the doctor training programs for Botox®, Dysport®, Juvederm®, Kybella™, Perlane®, Restylane®, Voluma™ and Sculptra®. He demonstrates and teaches his advanced artistic techniques to doctors from all over the world. Distinguished among his peers, his findings, research, data and techniques using Botulinum toxins and dermal fillers have been presented at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS.net) and the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD.org) national meetings. They have also been published in Best Practices In Cosmetic Dermatology. In addition to being known for his injection techniques and natural looking results that enhance facial structure, Dr. Eidelman is recognized as a leading expert on cosmetic treatments for men.
