Let’s Talk Skin Care With Hilda DemirjianOct 29, 2020 10:58AM ● By Michelle Bense
Natural Awakenings’ editor Michelle Bense sat down with Hilda Demirjian, Fairfield County resident and owner of aesthetic laser and skin care centers in White Plains, NY, to discuss her passion for skin, education and her proprietary skin care product line.
What first inspired your interest in health and skin care?
My passion for skin began in my native country, Persia, where skin care and wellness is still considered highly valuable and important. As a young girl in Persia—considered by some to be the “Mecca” of skin care—I grew up visiting hammams (steam rooms) and spas on a weekly basis from the age of six. As an adult, my love for radiant skin grew into a driving passion. My mission is to help every individual to feel confident and give them hope so they begin to love their skin, the largest organ in the body, once again.
What is your specialty?
Skin education is my passion and I travel the world presenting at conferences and events. I always say, “Laser is my business, skin is my passion.” I specialize in combining the science of aesthetic laser with the ancient world of skin care. I use a unique laser technique which provides nearly painless treatments for laser hair removal, and collagen and skin rejuvenation. I work with many types of skin and can help people with rosacea, acne, sun damage, scars, stretch marks and many more conditions, including illnesses like cancer.
What were some of your early influences?
I was particularly affected by my grandmother’s experience when she was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I remember touching her skin and feeling how papery and thin it had become because of the treatment. My flagship collagen product developed with green apple stem cells was something I created in part because I wanted to help people recovering from cancer. The collagen product helps undo some of the damage caused by the medicine.
What is different about your proprietary skin care line?
I formulated my own premium quality skin care product line through many years of scientific research with 100 percent botanical sources, including fruit stem cells. I’m particularly proud of Collagen-Elastin Gel with Apple Stem Cells; it is an innovative formula derived from botanical sources that actively stimulates the growth of the protein collagen in the epidermis.
By replacing the lost collagen, the product strengthens the skin and reduces the appearance of scars, acne, fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. Users will quickly see substantial improvements in the look and the feel of their skin, as well as an elimination of dullness after consistently applying the gel.
Working at a cellular level, Collagen-Elastin Gel heals and rejuvenates pre/post-surgical scars by providing enough protein levels so that the skin does not suffer after surgery. The gel has also proven effective at healing skin damage following cancer treatments, including mastectomies.
What should a client expect from working with you?
Confidentiality and compassion are my hallmarks. My work is more than a business. I am devoted to my clients and work with them to restore hope, confidence and self-esteem. I work with many individuals recovering from serious illness, including cancer, and devote time and support to charitable organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation, YMCA, Gilda’s Club and White Plains Hospital.
Do you have any advice for the skin care issues we may be facing due to COVID-19?
It is important to protect your skin during COVID, especially because mask wearing can interfere with the skin's ability to access oxygen. Invest in your skin and you'll be thrilled, mask or no mask!
