Gillian Palette, DNP, MS, ANP-BC, is a doctorally prepared board certified nurse practitioner specializing in advanced injectables and cosmetic dermatology and is the CEO, co-founder and director of medical and nursing services of SKYNgenuity Medical Spa & Wellness Center in New York City.
Palette received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware, her Masters degree from Hunter College of the City University of New York, graduating with honors, and her Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) (doctoral degree) from New York University. She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Sigma Theta Tau (The Honor Society of Nursing), American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, and American Society For Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc.® She has studied advanced injectable techniques from The College of Cosmetic Medicine, The Esthetic Skin Institute, The National Laser Institute, as well as with Allergan and Galderma. Dr. Palette was one of the few health care professionals in 2015 chosen to tour the South West of France with the Pierre Fabre Group where she studied adjunct treatments of atopic skyn conditions at Laboratories Dermatologiques at the Hydrotherapy Center in Avene, France. Most recently, Palette was one of the first in the United States to study the role of Polidixanone (PDO) sutures in Aesthetic Medicine and trained under Enrico Guarino, MD (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Rome, Italy) and Antonella Quaranta, MD (General and Esthetic Surgeon Florence, Italy) at the Esthetic Skin Institute. With over 18 years of experience in health care, including 9 years of cosmetic dermatology/esthetics in her own private practice in Manhattan and Long Island, she continues to regularly advance her knowledge of the newest skyn care techniques and treatments available.
Palette’s interest in skincare began at a young age, after watching her mother experience premature aging, then personally suffering from both teen and adult acne. This forced her to test skin care products and treatments at a very young age, something she continues to do to this day. After working as a professional registered nurse in oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and as a surgical nurse practitioner at NYU’s Clinical Cancer Institute, Palette chose to pursue her lifelong passion; focusing on and providing advanced care in cosmetic dermatology and esthetics.
Known to her patients as “Dr. Gill,” Palette combines her extensive scientific, advanced nursing, and medical knowledge with a warm and personal approach towards each and every patient, ensuring the highest standard of customized care. Along with injectables (Botox, Dysport, and a large array of dermal fillers), customized prescription strength chemical peels, medical-grade facials, and laser treatments, she holds the distinction of being one of the first clinicians in New York City practicing the non-surgical PDO face lift (aka PDO thread lift or PDO threading), a new aesthetic treatment recently available in the U.S. Palette’s personal philosophy is to promote the health and wellness of the skyn while enhancing her patients’ appearance, not altering it.
