We think going to an office for Botox, dermal fillers and IV therapy is as passé as aging.
We think you should receive medical aesthetic resuscitation in your home, on your schedule.
We think you should be cared for by a doctor. (Ours is Harvard educated, Columbia trained and an expert in head and neck anatomy.)
We think faces should never look frozen or filled, and 1-week follow-ups and touch-ups give you the freedom to start low and go slow.
We think injections should be paired with evidence-based medical and holistic therapies to treat your skin outside and in.
Architecture is basically a container of something. I hope that people will enjoy not so much the teacup, but the tea.”
The good building is no one that hurts the landscape, but one that makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before the building was built.”
We’re New Yorkers, too. Hardworking, late-playing, real-talking, community-engaged, detoxing, re-toxing, joyful, exhausted, lionhearted, loving, busy New Yorkers.
Beauty is a sign – a sign of glowing inner health. We started House Call to bring the art of healing to medical aesthetics.
All of our patients are seen by Dr. Alexandra Palma, MD.
Dr. Palma attended college at Harvard University and medical school at Columbia University. She completed a sub-internship in Cosmetic Dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery at Vitalogy Skincare in Austin, Texas. She trained in Internal Medicine at Maimonides Medical Center and in Anesthesiology at Montefiore Medical Center.
Dr. Palma now continues her training in the field of Functional Medicine and is passionate about bringing a multi-modal, root-cause approach to her clinical aesthetics practice. Before becoming a doctor she was an artist, so she loves having a practice that engages her creative mind and her understanding of the principles underlying our perception of beauty.
Did we mention she’s great company? Really great. And best of all, she cares.
After being treated for breast cancer I felt like my face aged ten years overnight. In the space of an hour Dr. Palma reversed all of the aging and more — and she made me feel cared for while she was doing it.
Christian Louboutin came up to me last night and asked me if I was “super in love.” I said no… and he said “but you look better than I’ve ever seen you look before. So fresh!”
What I love about the House Call style is that you don’t look like a different person afterward. You just look like you did ten or fifteen years ago. It’s really hard to find a doctor with that kind of eye.
Our aesthetic is soft and supple, not frozen or filled. That means the minimum effective dose is often the most effective dose.
One-week follow-ups and touch-ups after cosmetic procedures means you’ll never feel pressure to do too much at once. As they say in anesthesiology: it’s easier to give more later than to take it away.
We’ll restore the features that have always made you beautiful to their most youthful appearance, then we’ll get out of their way and let them glow.
The best way to look young is to be young.
When you become a patient of House Call you’ll get access to our online resources for movement, mediation and tips for holistic skin health. Meditation can fight systemic inflammation and invite awareness to the face, body and mind to encourage youthfulness.
At any house call you can choose to add alternative therapies to your treatment which improve blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and immune-mediated collagen-repair.
We’ll also keep you up to date with the most current, evidence based recommendations for holistic skin health.
Space is the breath of art.”
The features that contribute to our perception of attractiveness differ vastly between men and women. Male and female faces also age differently, so men require specific study and consideration when it comes to clinical and preventive aesthetics.
Our doctors are trained in the art of the male face. We love working with our male patients and finds that many of them benefit from a preventive strategy.
Let’s have a house party. We offer discounts for groups of more than five and ten people. The only thing better than getting gorgeous is getting gorgeous in good company.
Injections like Botox and dermal fillers diminish signs of photoaging and natural changes in soft tissue morphology, but we can also use a variety of non-invasive therapies to reverse those symptoms by addressing their root cause.
In addition to cosmetic injections we offer medical cosmetic treatment, topical therapies, meditation and movement for skin suppleness, dietary supplementation, weight management, lifestyle modification, treatment of common skin disorders and referrals to specialists when there’s a more serious problem.
We like to treat the whole patient, which means treating the whole process behind their symptoms. After all, we’ve never diagnosed anybody with a Botox deficiency.
