With a rich mixture of academic and scientific knowledge, Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas has created an unparalleled line of skin care offerings for her eponymous company. No surprise that her signature product, "37 Extreme Actives," has won the Luxist Awards Readers' Choice Award in the best skin cream category.
Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas started her skin cream line after a more than a decade of impressive preparation. She earned three degrees from Harvard (B.A., M.D., and a Ph.D in genetics), also stopping off at Yale to teach at the medical school and serve as a physician at Yale-New Haven hospital. She started her own private practice in laser and aesthetic dermatology in New York in 2003. Since becoming a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas continued her scientific research in skincare, working as a consultant to L'Oreal Paris for three years, conducting clinical trials for pharmaceutical companies and laser device companies, as well as independent research on lasers and her newest work in the lab.
