About Dr. Adrienne Denese, M.D., Ph.D. 

One of the first doctors to specialize in anti-aging medicine, creator of award-winning Dr. Denese SkinScience®, and a top-seller on QVC, Dr. Denese has made it her life’s mission to help women look younger, feel younger and live healthier lives. As an accomplished doctor, businesswoman and skin care visionary, Dr. Denese has connected directly to customers through her PBS Special and infomercial, giving all women access to her innovative, premium products at affordable prices.

Born in Hungary at the height of communism.  At nine, she was introduced to skin care by helping her aunt make bee pollen face cream, purchased by hundreds of women in secrecy. The shop was ultimately closed. All the while, Dr. Denese was trying to stay connected to the world, she threw herself into studying Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Latin, English and German.

Earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the very early age of 22. To further her studies, her father spent his life savings on a one-way airplane ticket to New York, so she could start her new life in America. During her post-doctoral fellowship at University of Pennsylvania, published many scientific papers. This earned her an invitation to give a lecture at Harvard Medical School for the Neurology Department.

After Harvard, she was inspired to go to Medical School. She was accepted into the only school she applied to, Cornell Medical School. At 32, the oldest in her class, she felt compelled to find new ways to retain her youth through understanding the aging process, which became her focus and passion.

After graduation, she opened her own anti-aging medical practice in Manhattan. Through this, she gained recognition from the New York Times, Good Morning America and 20/20 for her breakthrough approach to maximizing the anti-aging efficacy of ingredients.

In 2002, she launched the Dr. Denese SkinScience® brand and began partnering with QVC. In 2006, she published her book, Secrets for Ageless Skin. Reached top performing status on QVC for a skin care line, selling over 25 million units and receiving multiple QVC customer choice beauty awards.
