When you become a patient at Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute, you will immediately feel the difference from other dermatology practices. You will enter our office and relax in our gorgeous waiting room - which is the first clue to our philosophy as it contains no marketing material and is calm and comforting. We want you to feel relaxed and at home as you enjoy Dr. Baumann’s extensive vintage compact collection during your brief wait for your appointment. We make an effort to avoid over scheduling our practice and we schedule fewer patients per day than other offices do. The reason?
We know that in order to give you top of the line service and care, we need to get to know your skin and take our time on cosmetic procedures to ensure the best outcome. We want you to look natural - not overdone - and we pride ourselves on our artistic talent with fillers and Botox/Dysport. Our well-trained staff takes the time to listen, observe and teach you about your skin’s issues and the best treatment options.
Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute (BCRI) is a group of research-driven doctors who approach each patient’s needs with solid science and an artistic eye.
We offer honest advice, free of pushy marketing and we would never suggest a procedure that had not been scientifically proven to work. Since its inception in 1997 at the University of Miami, the Institute has been led by Dr. Leslie Baumann, who is recognized as one of the leading cosmetic dermatologists in the world. She wrote the best-selling textbook (in 8 languages) that other doctors use to learn how to perform these procedures. BCRI is devoted to cutting-edge research and is home to the clinical trials that led to the FDA approval of groundbreaking skin innovations including Botox and Dysport, the dermal fillers Hylaform, Sculptra, Juvederm and the hyperpigmentation lightening cream Tri-Luma.
We are constantly researching new lasers and light devices, cellulite treatments, acne solutions, skin care products and injectable procedures — and this gives us an advantage that we pass on to you. Our cosmetic dermatologists have years of experience with the most innovative treatments before they even hit the market.
The Baumann Cosmetic & Research Institute is easily accessed by patients seeking a straightforward, honest and practical approach to looking your best. We educate our patients on proper skin care techniques, vitamin supplementation and we customize skin care regimens according to each patient’s individual Baumann Skin Type.
We educate and train doctors from all around the world and our well-respected cosmetic dermatologists and skin care specialists are frequent international lecturers. Recognized by Allure Magazine (March 2010) as an “Influencer in the Beauty Industry” and by others as one of the “best cosmetic dermatologists”, Dr. Baumann runs prestigious international symposiums like the World Congress of Dermatology in Argentina (2007) and Korea (2011) and the International Society of Dermatology in Prague (2009). Dr. Baumann also authored the first textbook on this rapidly emerging field in 2002, and the second edition of Cosmetic Dermatology (McGraw Hill) now ranks as the bestselling dermatology textbook in the world. In 2005, Dr. Baumann authored The Skin Type Solution, a New York Times bestseller that was published in several languages. The new edition of Skin Type Solutions was published in December 2010 to coincide with the PBS special Skin Type Solutions with Dr. Leslie Baumann that aired beginning in late 2010.
Dr. Baumann’s distinguished colleague, Dr. Heather Woolery-Lloyd, is a renowned specialist and frequent lecturer on ethnic skin care and cosmetic dermatology procedures on skin of color. In 2011 she launched her skin care line “Specific Beauty” for multi-hued skin tones. These doctors are joined by various specialists who share a common goal- to give you expert cosmetic dermatology services in a soothing, low pressure and honest environment using the latest techniques that were researched by our incomparable research team.
