Michelle F. Henry, M.D., is a board certified dermatologist who specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery, laser surgery, and cosmetic dermatology.

She is currently a Clinical Instructor of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College. She attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and completed her residency in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, where she served as Chief Resident. Following residency, she completed a fellowship in cutaneous oncology, Mohs micrographic, and reconstructive surgery at Lahey Clinic in Boston, where she was also appointed as a clinical fellow in dermatology at Harvard Medical School.  She specializes in high risk skin cancer treatments, cosmetic surgery, and skin of color.

Every dermatologist has access to the same products and treatments, but it takes a true artist, with skill and empathy, to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

She has published numerous articles and chapters on skin cancer treatment and surgery, including publications in Dermatologic Surgery on complex reconstruction techniques after Mohs surgery, new surgical techniques for basal cell carcinoma, and innovative uses for photodynamic therapy. She is a committed research scientist, who was recognized as a Tromovitch Award finalist by the American College of Mohs Surgery.

She has lectured at the Annual Meetings of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the National Medical Association on the proper techniques for injecting dermal fillers, hair transplantation, body contouring, and Mohs reconstruction.

Dr. Henry has been featured in many magazine and newspaper publications, including Instyle, Cosmopolitan, Woman’s Day, Essence, Better Homes and Gardens, Health, Black Enterprise, Beauty in the Bag, Plastic Surgery Practice and Newsday.   She has been a guest speaker on SirusXM Satellite Radio.  She is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, American Society for Laser Medicine, and American College of Mohs Surgery. She serves on the Education Committee of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the Communications Committee for the Women’s Dermatology Society, and the Scientific Advisory Boards for Bevel (a Walker and Company brand) and BTG International Ltd.

Dr. Henry’s treatment philosophy is to provide holistic care while utilizing the latest techniques and scientific data.
