Dr. Dennis Gross - Retinol, Temporal Facelift, Injecting Fat, & Finding What Is Purposeful and Necessary

Dr. Dennis Gross is a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who has been in practice for 25 years. He is a MAJOR expert in the field- so major that I knew he had to write the forward for my book, ‘Get the Fuck Out of The Sun’ AND kick off the limited series, duh.

He created award-winning Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare which delivers clinical level results from the comfort of your own home. Of course he is also nationally recognized for his expertise in skin health as well as his approach to creating and maintaining the most natural-looking skin.

Another cool DDG fact: he’s an expert in detecting and treating skin cancer, so he knows to GTFOOTS. In the episode, we discuss injections, how to micro-manage at your lip filler appointment, treating acne, how and where to apply retinol, how to best take care of your eyes/eyelids, and why you really need to amp up your collagen game.



( 4:26 ): Lauryn says, “I’m intimidated by retinol. And I think a lot of people are intimidated by retinol. It’s a very big subject, so I would love if you could explain it in kindergarten terms.”

( 9:32 ): Lauryn asks, “Who should not use retinol?”

( 10:01 ): Lauryn says, “So, if you wanted to incorporate retinol into your skincare routine, you told me earlier use it at night. Can you walk us through what that looks in your ideal world? What a patient would be doing by adding it at night?”

( 11:24 ): Lauryn says, “So you have 3 retinol products here. Is there a place to start? Can you use all of them?”

( 18:08 ): Lauryn says, “What do you do personally to fight puffiness?”

( 18:58 ): Lauryn says, “And you don’t like drinking collagen to produce collagen. You’re one of the only people whose come on this podcast and said that and since you said that I’ve been weary of that now. Can you explain that?”

( 26:52): Lauryn asks, “What do you think about overfilling the face?”

( 33:17 ): Lauryn asks, “What would you use in a lip? Someone that’s listening and they’re in Arkansas and they don’t have access to New York City vibes, what would you tell them to ask for?”

( 34:24 ):  Lauryn asks, “What about taking fat from my ass and putting in my face. Cause I had a friend that did that.”

( 36:15 ):  Lauryn says, “It’s kind of annoying, to be honest, to have to keep getting your lips filled over and over. Is there a more permanent option?”

( 38:41 ):  Lauryn says, “I would love to know what patients are coming in asking for.”

( 43:52 ): Lauryn asks, “What do you think of buccal fat removal?”

( 46:06 ): Lauryn asks, “If someone wants that buccal fat look, is there anyway to achieve that? Or is it only through buccal fat removal?”

( 49:55 ): Lauryn says, “Do you fucking die when you’re at a dinner party and there’s someone with bad filler? How do you contain yourself?”

( 56:55 ): Lauryn says, “I have seen a lot of scarring from lip lifts. I would love to know tour opinion on that.”

( 1:00:31 ): Lauryn says, “I would love for you to leave the audience with something they can do at home that’s super easy.”
